H.B. 1567 passed the Hawaii Legislature and now goes to Governor Ige to sign or veto.
This bill is opposed by Honolulu Mayor Rick Blangiardi, the Department of the Attorney General and the Department of the Prosecuting Attorney. Also, it is opposed by citizens who are sick of crime and soft treatment of repeat offending criminals, which this bill will encourage.
Michael Kitchens of Stolen Stuff Hawaii and NewsRadio 830 KHVH encourage you to sign the petition to persuade Governor Ige to veto this legislation. H.B. 1567 -- so-called "bail reform" would release offenders on their own recognizance, thereby allowing them to further victimize our neighborhoods and workplaces within hours of their arrest.
