What happen to Joe is beyond horrific and beyond sad. HE was a DEVOTED father - a definate exception to the rule. I never saw him without his two youngest boys and the love he had for them was undeniable. His youngest clung to him and they were both well behaved. This evil person took a life and changed the lives of many FOREVER. Maku deserves the harshest of punnishments and everyone that was with him should be held accountable as well. If you drive someone to commit a crime you are guilty too - and at the very least the others need to get charged with failure to render aid and obstruction of justice. But at the end of the day they still have to live with themselves and always know that evil runs through their blood. They will not go unpunished - may it be by our justice system - their own conscience - and GOD.

I think Maku is crazy I knew that guy when he was a kid. I would never thought that he would do such a thing! My heart goes out to both families and that hopefully Maku learns something from all of this! It saddens my heart to see Hawaii people like this, usually this kind of thing would happen in the mainland but sad to say it happens in Hawaii too! To Joel Botelho family my condelences and I pray that God continues to help you through this rough time! Take care and God bless!
