Most of America elects their sheriffs, who is the chief law enforcement officer in their jurisdiction.
Hawaii has a Commission of rich mainland east or west coast liberals appointed by a Liberal to
select a Liberal top cop.
Having given testimony to the Hawaii county Police commission, I'm way less than impressed.
Even when I quote 18 US code 242 violations by their police chief, to them, they blow it off.
They hired him, so they protect him.
I bet that if we could elect our sheriffs/police chiefs, we would have a very different crime
environment where no one would have to lock the doors and could camp on the beach again.
