    This short article by Maui Now does not give any where near the full picture of this story on Mr. Ing. People should really get all the details that are available before commenting. READ:
    Maui news July 28, 2016: Ing arrested for missing court date.
    Maui News July 29, 2016:" Ing's account , police report at odds".
    Bottom line: It appears that Mr. Ing has major problems with handling basic responsibilities, a pattern of procrastination and a tendency to make excuses, blame others and distort facts.
    But don't believe me folks. READ the articles before proclaiming him a victim or that there is nothing there.

    Give him a break. This is just a smear tactic anyway against him

  • Re: Rep. Ing Apologetic About Arrest, Missed Court DatePosted by Realistic on 7/29/2016 10:30am

    How can you say you forgave him, but yet expect an apology? If you truly forgave him, you'd understand that an apology might not be coming your way, ever. Forgiveness is for your own benefit and growth. It should not be based on whether or not you get an apology. I see your point and I empathize with you.

    Do you know who Yeshua Boerstler (RIP) was? He was a Maui teen beaten and run over to death in High School. He was killed for his punk fashion and white skin. Prejudice is real and gets serious. People marched in the streets for equality. After that unfortunate incident, Maui seemed to move in a more racially tolerant place. But when you are a victim of racial hatred/profiling etc., you understand that it is our human obligation to make things better for future generations. I am able to look at his campaign unbiased, and I would vote for him if he had the decency to apologize. When I see him he looks away, ashamed of his own actions and hatred, and I look away, ashamed at myself for not standing up to the physical and mental abuse. I forgave him long ago, but the voters still have a right to know the truth.

    Dude, really? That was back in high school. People change, people grow up. And honestly, you must still harbor some pretty bad feelings toward him because you can't objectively view his campain in an unbiased manner. Yeah, it sucks that he did that. But don't let it haunt you. I know I've said some nasty things to people and vice versa, when I was in HS. That's just how it is. But we're all adults now and we all got over it and have more important things to worry about. I'm sure you do too. 10+ years is a long time to linger....

  • Re: Rep. Ing Apologetic About Arrest, Missed Court DatePosted by OUTLAW93 on 7/29/2016 8:49am

    Not something that is easy for me to talk about, but he constantly used racial slurs at me and bullied me in school on account of my race. Not talking about 3rd grade stuff, this was junior year high school. I don't have the same hatred or feelings of hurt i once had, but this is fact.

  • Re: Rep. Ing Apologetic About Arrest, Missed Court DatePosted by Realistic on 7/29/2016 8:29am

    He may be irresponsible and full of excuses. And yes, this might have changed my view of him. But a RACIST? How do you know this? What has he done/said that makes him one?

  • Re: Rep. Ing Apologetic About Arrest, Missed Court DatePosted by OUTLAW93 on 7/29/2016 8:20am

    No lies, shame on you for being a shill.

  • Re: MauiWine: How Our Island’s Vineyard GrowsPosted by Sasha on 7/29/2016 7:19am

    I love Maui Wine. Their winery is fantastic and the 'Ulupalakua Ranch Store and Grill is fantastic as well. It is always worth the drive out there.

  • Re: Rep. Ing Apologetic About Arrest, Missed Court DatePosted by PaiaGirl on 7/29/2016 7:04am

    More Tegarden lies and dirty politics. Shame on you and shame on Tegarden for running the dirtiest campaign I've seen in 20 years.

  • Re: Rep. Ing Apologetic About Arrest, Missed Court DatePosted by PaiaGirl on 7/29/2016 7:03am

    More dirty campaigning by Dierdre Tegarden. Shame on her and her supporters at Monsanto and A&B.

  • Re: Rep. Ing Apologetic About Arrest, Missed Court DatePosted by OUTLAW93 on 7/29/2016 5:26am

    It's funny how people say he owns up to the consequence. "I was fixing my car, I wasn't driving, I was in O'ahu, I don't check my mail" This guy is an excuse machine. Also, the people who know him personally know he is racist. He does not like whites, which is ironic considering the area he wishes to represent...

  • Re: Rep. Ing Apologetic About Arrest, Missed Court DatePosted by Merlin on 7/28/2016 10:56pm

    Our youth need to see our leaders "Lead by Example". Big problem in our country right now.

  • Re: Rep. Ing Apologetic About Arrest, Missed Court DatePosted by Mauiday on 7/28/2016 8:27pm

    For a more complete picture and background get all the facts folks. Read the full stories cited:

    1. Ing arrested for missing court date 7/28/16 by Uechi & Fuimoto in Maui News. Much more complete picture of Ing's recurring problems with the law and taking timely responsibility.

    2. Rep Kaniela Ing among worse attendance in State House. Hawaii Free press 6/15/16.
    3. Rep Ing has used his per diem during interim session more than any of his neighbor island colleagues. Civil Beat. 7/21,2015
    4. Complaint filed with Campaign Spending Commission against Mark K Ing 2012.
    5. Mark K Ing threaten with expulsion from UH in letter dated 2010 in article by Andrew Walden in Hawaii Free Press 10/22/12.
    Mr. Ing may be a decent guy but he seems to have an ongoing problem with responsibility and procrastination.

  • Re: Rep. Ing Apologetic About Arrest, Missed Court DatePosted by Stand Alone on 7/28/2016 1:22pm

    Everyone does the same they miss a court date and they apologize and gives their resons why for doing so and still gets slapped with a fine. Let's see if there's any favoritism or discrimination on his side. But he did say he was open to take full responsibilities for his part.
    But, regardless what his job is especially what he is he should be aware of all appointments of meetings and especially any court dates.

  • Re: Rep. Ing Apologetic About Arrest, Missed Court DatePosted by kiheilocal on 7/28/2016 11:02am

    Love this guy. Suffers the same slights that us voters suffer...the struggle is real.

  • Re: Happy Valley Dirt Bike Accident Forces Road ClosurePosted by Paul on 7/28/2016 7:25am

    Just to say one thing about my friend who died in this accident, he was a kind and humble man a true brother in Christ. I knew him many years at St. Damien Church on Molokai always helping people and took care of all our churches topside. I know his last words before he died would be of forgiveness to her and I know he will be praying for her in heaven and for all the family's involved. So I ask of you, please stop bashing and start praying for both family's. Amen

  • Re: Happy Valley Dirt Bike Accident Forces Road ClosurePosted by Realistic on 7/28/2016 3:49am

    Wow...such a freak accident. That poor man couldn't have seen this coming. And the driver... Only 19 yo and her life will forever be changed. I used to live on that side and I would see speeding dirt bike riders doing wheelies and quads driving on the road. Most of them were young adults. When are they going to realize that you can't be riding all crazy on a bike? Like I told my son, if you eat it, there's no barrier btwn you and the ground. My nephew got into a bad accident on a dirt bike. It took a traumatic event to make him ride responsibly.
    Such a sad turn of events. This type of thing just confirms that you never know how much longer you have on this rock. Condolences to all the families affected by this tragic accident.

  • Re: Happy Valley Dirt Bike Accident Forces Road ClosurePosted by Stand Alone on 7/28/2016 3:28am

    I guess now some people understand what I ment all this time. About having more police policing our highways and roadways. To much people driving like idiots and it includes locals, local transplants, and tourist.......
    People driving like idiots and disregarding others on the roads. And people driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
    So, this is an good example of morons driving idiots kills the innocent.
    And so far for the whatever amount of highway patrol officers that we have on our roads that is trying to catch these idiots driving like idiots and trying to keep us and our families on the roadways safe..... GOOD JOB!!!!!! but we need more officers patrolling our roadways (We don't have enough )... we have only a small amount and they can't be where we need them all the time.
    I've been seeing the police out on our roads alot more then in the pass and and catching those people thats speeding and driving drunk and handing out citations. But, we still need more patrol officers out there on the roads policing, cause I've seen a lot of these idiots that slipped through.
    For those of you that don't understand, the police department has different sections, departments, divisions, whatever you want to call it. And for our highway patrol officers we need more..... and for the rest of the divisions within the department we also need more officers (man power ).... we have an island that is growing and we have minimal amount of officers. And yes to many MPD is not doing a job well done as what we all expect from them because they are overwhelmed, overloaded with cases and can't handle. That's why most of us says alot of negative things about the police departments. Our police department really stands alone in what they do. In comparison to the rest of our emergency responders. The medical responders has help from the fire department and the police..... the fire department has help from the amount of man power within their own department cause they work in packs. But, for our police officers they are normally on their own unless they call for backup and that ties up whatever units that's assigned to that area. Sometimes they need to send officers from different assigned areas to assist. And that takes away from that other areas.
    So, if anyone has a problem with the service of MPD then demand for more officers to be on duty. Then maybe you'll get your satisfaction.
    Now, for the qualifications of the officers is another subject........

  • Re: Maui Man Charged in Kea Street MurderPosted by Merlin on 7/28/2016 2:47am

    MPD did a good job but the Judges and Attorneys have failed society here in this case. Look at all the crimes this guy has put on the community, and thats only the crimes we know of....don't waste another dollar of tax money on this looser.

    Bread and water and a jail cell for life. His buddies deserve the same.

  • Re: Happy Valley Dirt Bike Accident Forces Road ClosurePosted by payasyougo on 7/28/2016 2:40am

    This is serious. She is looking at being put on Probation for weeks or maybe even a month.

  • Re: Happy Valley Dirt Bike Accident Forces Road ClosurePosted by surfergirl on 7/27/2016 10:58pm

    I was thinking the same thing. It always seems like the ones driving like maniacs live while someone innocent dies. I hope she's arrested

  • Re: Happy Valley Dirt Bike Accident Forces Road ClosurePosted by allenbam on 7/27/2016 7:03pm

    sadly the wrong person died in this 'accident'...pity...

    Kahului man faces robbery charges

    A Kahului man is facing a robbery charge for allegedly twice head-butting his mother to take keys before driving off in her rental car last month.

    Bronsen Rodrigues, 29, was being held in lieu of $35,000 bail at the Maui Community Correctional Center on Thursday. He is charged with second-degree robbery, unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle and abuse.

    The incident occurred at about 2 p.m. March 28 at his mother's residence on Nahele Road in Haiku.

    Rodrigues reportedly asked to use the 2013 Nissan Sentra and his mother refused because the rental car was late on being returned. His mother went to the car, which was parked in her driveway, to remove the keys when Rodrigues got into the car with her in an attempt to get the keys, police said.

    During a struggle, Rodrigues head-butted his mother twice in her head, causing a cut to her inner lip and a hematoma above her left ear, police said. Then, Rodrigues took the keys and, after his mother got out of the car, drove away, police said.
