Like father like son!! I got no sympathy for that family. And people wonder why our society is headed toward the path of perdition. Integrity! Honor! Trust!! What a joke concerning the cops assisting these idiots. and they are IDIOTS!!!!

The FBI needs to prioritize it investigations, especially in lean times. Sure cockfighting is seen as a problem and a few cops take a few bribes, but they just want to have a little fun.
Look, ask yourself, and ask the Police, when was the last time someone was arrested for using an electromagnetic weapon that blew the brains out of an unsuspecting victim. Has the Star Bulletin ever reported such a case?
Next time you hear about the FBI arresting cockfighters, think about all those microwave ovens being modified to blast an enemy through apartment building walls.

They were probably choking their chickens. And even if they weren't before, they'll certainly be doing it a lot in prison.

If it wasn't for the FBI, no one would have gotten caught. This activity has been going on for too long and HPD knew about it all these years.

Some HPD officers have been in the protection businese for years. Others used to take flares and siphon gas, that was years and years ago. They've already retired. just the facts.

Friend, you are right. You had better start watching out for the aliens watching you. You had better put your tin foil helmet on to prevent them from stealing your brain.

Let's bring back Prohibition...that is outlaw alchohol and cigarettes too. That way everyone gets to have fun. Cops, judges, bible thumpers, okolehao bootleggers. THAT would revive the sugarcane industry. Bootleg tobacco would be the new forbidden fruit.

Two words that strike fear in folks convicted of this kind of stuff “asset forfeiture”. I wonder if the feds are going to go after the property that was used to host to gambling activities. How much you want to bet that the union will try and get the City to keep the dude on without pay until he is released so he can have a job to go back to?
