p.s...and Oahu Portagee, you missed the other reasons I mentioned as well as it not just being about giving chase to a minivan. GOOD ON THE GIRLS! They be great to have on the Neighborhood Watch Group. My guess is you'd join the NWG and simply let crime happen without batting an eyelash or doing a damn thing about it.
Ok, lolo. Whatever you say.

Exactly my point....lolo...you'd rather roll over and die instead of taking a stand and doing what's RIGHT. Here's a mottor for you: Lead, follow, or get the hell out of the way. These ladies took no shiit and stood up for what they believe in and you're attempting to bash their efforts. I'm sure they knew the risks involved, yet STILL chose to teach these fat azz criminal baastards a lesson. Stupid punks, bothe of them.

You're mistaken. My grandmother lived in Liliha, and I remember, back in the early 80's, some guy went into one of the Chinese restaurants on Liliha street and robbed it. He ran out of the restaurant. A restaurant employee gave chase. The robber turned around, pulled out his gun, and shot the employee DEAD.
These ladies need to thank their lucky stars that nothing happened to them. They are lucky that their brains ain't splattered all over Kamehameha Hwy. Ain't nothing to brag about. Ain't nothing to be happy about. Like I said, they are probably feeling all "empowered" right now, but they need to realize how stupid their actions were. Again, all for a piece of %$#^ minivan.
So how much risk are you willing to accept to protect yourself, your family and your property? Do you simply roll over and tell the low-life punks to take what they want, I'm outta here? Or do you stand up for what's yours and defend it? Sure, common sense has to prevail, but you also have to draw the line somewhere and take responsibility for yourself. The police can't protect you. Sure, they can respond after the fact, and maybe even catch the perpetrators, who will probably be released back on the street in a matter of hours. But how much good does that do you?

That's because you lack common sense. Either that or you're just plain old stoopid.
I'm not saying that one should be passive. I'm saying that one needs to use judgement. It's not about being tough or brave or any of that s#%t. It's about using your best weapon - your mind.
Would a police officer just run up to the door of a vehicle that he just stopped? Would a firefighter just dash into a burning building as soon as he arrives on the scene? No. They would first assess the situation. They would wait for back-up if needed.
Police officers are TRAINED on how to approach a vehicle. What side to approach the vehicle from, what to look for, how to angle out if needed, where to take cover if needed, etc. These ladies just ran up to the car like a bunch of morons.
Like I said, their friends and families will "congratulate" them, they will get a lot of attention, they city may even give them some kind of "award", and they will feel "empowered" from this experience. And, unfortunately, if something like this ever happens to them again, they will do the same thing. Only thing is that things may not turn out so nicely the next time. The next time, the thieves may be cold and ruthless. They may get their brains blown out, or they may get a blade stuck through their throats.
Wow! You amazing, bro. And after all your Monday morning quarterbacking on how these girls instantly and immediately reacted to foil the crime and get back their property, you try anaylyze their response. I actually think "Intelligient" posts good things as most people would like to do what the girls did to da punks. Most people are not trained, as you say, but that doesn't mean they are stupid or cannot improvise on the spot to stand up for demselves and stop the thiefs!

Good for them. Maybe you ghetto monkey thieves should read this and realise people are tired of the B.S. crimes that are happening. Too bad the ladies did not have a gun; it would be one less piece of s**t punk.

You cannot blame the thieves . The owners of the van left the keys in the ignition. That is only tempting the thieves to steal.
Oh come on. It's the victim's fault? Even if leaving the keys in the van was not the smartest thing to do that doesn't mean that the thieves were justified in their action.

Such sociopathic thinking leads to criminals getting slaps on the wrist for bad behavior. We need to stop this. I hope you're not on the jury when someone is being tried for murdering one of my friends.

Maybe a wax job would've been better. I hear they're pretty painful. And his future BFs at OCCC will appreciate it.

This story sounds exaggerated.

2) Ripped his arm and pushed him off?
3) Threw a full soda bottle and hit him in the back of the head? 16 ounce bottle maybe. 2 Liter, ever tried it? MAYBE SHE CAN PLAY FOR UH. ARE THERE ALWAYS SODA LAYING AROUND CONVENIENTLY IN AIEA?
