“After a two-week jury trial, a federal jury in Honolulu, Hawaii, found defendants Kaulana Alo-Kaonohi, 32, and Levi Aki Jr., 33, guilty of a hate crime for their racially motivated attacks on C.K., a white man who was attempting to move into their Native Hawaiian neighborhood of Kahakuloa on Maui… At trial, the evidence showed that C.K., purchased a house in Kahakuloa and decided to move there with his wife and three daughters after his wife was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and forced to retire. When C.K. arrived in Kahakuloa, he was harassed and threatened by various Kahakuloa residents who told him things like, ‘This is a Hawaiian village. The only thing coming from the outside is the electricity,’ and ‘You don’t even belong in Hawaii,'” says a DOJ press release.
Continued: “On Feb. 13, 2014, when C.K. was unpacking his belongings with his elderly uncle, the defendants, who had never met C.K. before, stormed onto his property and demanded that he pack his things and leave, threatening to ‘tie [him] up and drag [him]’ and make him ‘go missing’ if he did not comply. When C.K. replied that he owned the house, defendant Alo-Kaonohi dragged his index finger along C.K.’s jaw and told him, ‘Your skin is the wrong [fucking] color.’ Defendant Aki then picked up a roofing shovel and handed it to defendant Alo-Kaonohi, who struck C.K. in the head with it, opening up a bloody wound on the back of C.K.’s head. Later on, after C.K. had already begun packing up his possessions, the defendants attacked him a second time,”
“During that attack, defendant Aki head butted C.K. and struck him in the face with the shovel a second time, giving C.K. a concussion and causing him to lose consciousness. When he came to, the defendants were kicking him in the side – kicks that broke two of his ribs. During the second attack, one of the defendants said, ‘no white man is ever going to live here.'”
The two assholes face up to 10 years in prison when they’re sentenced in March for the twisted inversion of how hate crimes usually go in the United States – which will probably be picked up by anti-anti-racism dipshits like Andy Ngo and Jim Hoft (if they haven’t already). It’s certainly a dicey situation, like there’s definitely going to be some far left libs saying they should be given a pass on the hate crime charges if they already did time for the assault itself.
Thaaaaat’s not really how it should work though. Hawaii may have been subjugated by force back in the 19th century but the colonists are all dead and it’s been a state for more than 60 years now. These two angry non-white hicks are American citizens, same as the victim whose rights were indeed violated. They were free to tell him they’re tired of white people and their goddamned cold brew coffee and pink Vineyard Vines polo shirts and all that other stupid Caucasian bullshit so just don’t talk to them ever, just as he was free to tell them Hawaiian pizza sucks.
