My object oh sublime,
I will achieve in time.
To make the punishment fit the crime, the punishment fit the crime.
And make each prisoner pent, unwillingly represent,
A source of innocent merriment, of innocent merriment.

Suspect shot, killed by Big Island police; attempted murder suspect still at large

By Matthew Nuttle
HAWAII COUNTY, Hawaii (KITV4) — A deadly police shooting and manhunt on the Big Island have now been linked, police confirmed Friday afternoon.

Investigators say they were following up on a tip on the location of attempted murder suspect Ronald Kahihikolo, who was wanted in connection with a domestic shooting in Ocean View on Mar. 7.

In following the tip, undercover officers found Kahihikolo in the company of several other people in the Kona area. Police said group was in possession of two stolen vehicles, a silver Chevy Malibu and a white Dodge sedan.

The undercover officers followed the Malibu was it headed south on Kamakaeha Avenue. When it stopped at the intersection of Kamakaeha Avenue and Palani Road, the officers moved in, and commanded the driver and a passenger in the vehicle to show their hands.

According to police, a man driving the car did not comply with the officers’ commands and began reaching for something in the car. That is when two officers opened fire, hitting the driver at least one time.

The driver took off following the shooting, crossing all lanes of Palani Road and down an embankment before finally coming to a stop.

As the first scene was unfolding, police say the stolen white Dodge sedan was spotted driving north towards Waimea. Kahihikolo was suspected to be driving that vehicle.

Not even. And I was stationed there.

At least he wasn’t in a stolen Kia armed with a K-bar and a Kimber.

I gaze upon the pic of Mz Redhead, and hear the song, “Long Cool Woman In a Black Dress”.

I just wish it was higher resolution, for purely academic reasons

Testify, Tox! Ms Ginger has curves in places where some don’t even have places. And as a nod to -Dog, I freely admit that I purchased certain periodicals, not for the articles, but for the artwork.

Y’all may recall that I made mention of more upcoming FGS that had a “Darwin Rule” aspect. And here we are.

One place that I do agree with the Religion of Pieces is their swift and sure, fitting, punishment.

This does not compute. “Smith, 32, was found dead on Tuesday at approximately 9:15 a.m., after a catalytic converter fell and crushed him”

That is one hell of a big catalytic converter there sparky.

They neglected to mention the “entire rest of the car” part of that convertor

The excerpt was poorly written, and I’m not masochistic enough to read the whole article. I counted three times some form of the word “share” (an odd choice) in the excerpt, and the rest was unclear language. I can’t tell if English is not the writer’s first language, he or she was a terrible student in English class, or the article was written by AI. (Open to the possibility of some weird combination of all three.)

Not many places to hide in on the Big Island but if you are gonna try, its the best one to try it on. Spent a few weeks there years ago. Very undeveloped unlike Oahu.

Nice! Swedish K is good, too.

SF and the CIA had quite a few of them in Viet Nam. My operations officer brought one with him when he came from CCN in Da Nang.
