=======================
That star advertiser story keeps using the term "alleged" kidnapping.
HNN story says they went to a popular Hilo cafe where there were many people.

It's pretty obvious that there is more to this story.
==========================
Apparently, the perp actually drugged and raped the girl.
I say we protect ourselves by giving this dude the deluxe boat ride.
I wanna start a charter boat company giving free swimming lessons.

yesterday I see a moped rider with a Samurai sword strapped on his back
balisong is illegal, but if you want to pack a Samurai sword, you are more than welcome to

Sgt. Kim said that as soon as you're able to, call 911.  If I ever get attacked by someone with a sword, I won't be able to call 911.

My hands or arms will probably be hacked off and I haven't practiced to dial with my tongue or nose.  Or maybe my head will be hacked off too so no matter.  I'm dead.

Sgt. Kim, the only way I'll be able to call 911 is after I do a mag dump on that f**ker.

Balisongs will soon be legal along butterfly knives. HIFICO has a lawsuit already filed and  pending.

They are legal here to carry open or concealled.  But in NV, they are illegal to conceal.  Yet 1 can open carry without a permit.

Work tools! 

A Filipino family (mom, dad, and son) did yard maintenance at my dad's house.  I saw the dad make short work of some decently thick shrubs with his machete.  Was  :o

Kalihi Valley residents are concerned with a major uptick in crime and they're pleading with state leaders for help.

"We had a 19 year old that was assaulted -- sexually assaulted -- about a week and a half ago," said Kalihi Valley resident Michael McDonald. "And we've had other general crime in the area, you know, so everybody's kind of concerned in my neighborhood."

Surveillance videos from McDonald's neighbors show trespassers looking through mailboxes, trying to get into cars and stealing things right off front porches.

Hypothetically:

Crimes rises & gov't is unable to stop it.  When they do catch the perps, property crimes normally go unpunished or with a minor wrist-slap.  Violent offenders get probation or no jail time because people are afraid to testify or there's nothing other than witness testimony to present at trial: no weapon, no video, etc.

Enter the Supreme Court.  With the state's "good cause" rule shot down (pun intended), the state must now make it possible for people to be armed in public.

Result:  If the issuance of Concealed Carry Licenses gets a few perps shot and/or killed, then crime suddenly takes a downward trend, the correlation will be a huge win for gun rights and a kick in the teeth for gun control activists. 

This exact scenario has played out in many cities across the US.  Arm the public, stop the criminals.

I remember the Detroit Police Chief telling people about 8 years ago to go out and buy a gun, because "we can't keep you safe."

I think other city police have issued similar announcements in the wake of the pandemic and increases in violent crime.

But.....but.....but....Sgt. Kim said......... ;) :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:


Seriously though, I agree with Flapp.  Arm the public, stop the criminals.  I believe that once the criminal element knows citizens can carry firearms crime will go down.
