The Ertel murder is especially troublesome. Time works against the successful prosecution of this case. It is hard to imagine how calculating and cruel Ms. Ertel's murderer is! Evil, evil, evil! I hope now Ms. Ertel's murderer will be tried and convicted soon!

Maybe if we doubled Oshiro's 37% percent pay raise he might, maybe, show up for work. Fat Chance.

Marcus Oshiro, You have just proved why a 36% pay raise was not deserved. When your term is up, start applying for another part time job because hopefully your constituents will remember and elect someone that can show up for meetings.

Marcus Oshiro, now you sound like Vernon Bartley. Pine is mischaracterizing me! I don't have to be at the meetings! Hey dummy, if you don't have to be at the meetings then give back your undeserved pay raise! All of you politicians should be lined-up and smacked upside the head for being so selfish! If you idiots would do a better job in writing laws that actually protect the public then the public wouldn't be so outraged! What's your address so I can mail you a quarter and you can buy yourself a clue.

It appears that Oshiro has a poor excuse. I will not vote for him again. I'll tell my friends that he is NO good for people in the district.

Oshiro should spend more time at meetings .

Seriously now. Why does Oshiro "always" has that look like he just got off the golf course? Hair all hamma' jams, dirty and greasy looking? Try get to work sometime and do something right for a change.

Oshiro was busy hanging out at Hulas in Waikiki. He completely forgot all about poor Karen.
What a douchbag.

Until this crime hits these legislators family, it will never pass. Simple as that. Marcus Oshiro claims he is a lawyer, so I ask, what type of a lawyer is he? Is he a lawyer that can't make it in the real world?, or is he a lawyer that wants to flex his muscle in the legislature? Somebody please let me know. All I see is a LOSER trying to lead a caravan of donkeys.

Reality check. Nearly every time prosecutors have made a motion for a minor to be tried as an adult, it has been granted. This "Karen's Law" would only tie the hands of a judge who thought the prosecutor's motion were not justified.

Pine doesn't know a darned thing about the justice system. She only knows how to pander to the lowest common denominator of public opinion.

The guy "always" looks fried because he's always at work. Go to the Capitol during the legislative session (almost over now) and see how much the chair of a committee like the Finance Committee works. You'd change your tune.

Time for a change. Unfortunately, it's not up to us, it's up to the people of Wahiawa to vote this guy out. His wife's elitist sounding letter to the editor last year calling anyone wanting to see the Bodies show mindless says it all about how the Oshiro's feel about us "regular" people.

Oshiro is an arrogant moronic disgrace. He is a danger to the health of hawaii. Why are people of so little stature voted in time and time again here? We all suffer.
