Something tells me the whole story never come out yet.

Allegedly the "victim" goes around asking these people for cigarettes, and if they say no, he starts trouble, and in this case, reportedly slapped the teenage girl.

Now, if that was your daughter or sister or family, what would YOU do?

If there was any mistake, it was the over-reaction from the family.

Over there, signs are removed from the street corners and bothering the cops is not the first thing they consider.

this story is now over even though i felt that the media overreacted by saying "man just got beat over a ciggarette" u know damn well dat this guy is a tongan n he seen a group of samoans and he just wanted to test his pride. Because he is from LA, and if the guy and his wife was looking for a safe place to live why in the hell would you go to WAIPAHU let alone a HOUSING AREA, well whatever i guess dats wat mainland people think, they think us hawaii people is all show and no go, well hope he learned his lesson because now he can tell his family that hawaii is on the reals an we can stand with any state.

"An Oahu grand jury returned an indictment yesterday charging Jeremiah Leota and Jimmy Robinson with first-degree assault and Ana Lealiiee with second-degree assault."
"Jeremiah Leota drove into Vainikolo with a sport utility vehicle and then backed into him twice until Vainikolo hit the ground, said Vickie Kapp, deputy prosecutor. Leota then got out of the SUV, kicked Vainikolo and struck him in the head with a baseball bat, she said."
How is backing up an SUV into someone twice to knock him to the ground, them striking him with a baseball bat in the head not attempted murder? I cannot believe that charges for all involved in the case (ten different people) have not been filed. When the victim does not recover from his coma and dies, then are they going to change the charges to murder?

my thoughts exactly. hitting someone 3 times with a vehicle and taking a bat to his head is first degree assault?

even if the tongan guy IS guilty of instigating it all, the actions of jeremiah leota should not be excused.

and some of these people actually made bail??? wow.

This whole thing is stupid.
It will even get worse if the victim dies.
I'm sure Tobacco Free Hawaii will try to spin this as another tobacco related death and ban groups of more than one from congregating outside while smoking.

there is always two side to a story. this guy is in a coma so no one will know the truth until or if he does get out of this coma. come on people 1 against 5. tell me what is wrong with this picture and by looking at the victims picture he is a small guy. what one of you idiots couldn't take hime by yourself. you had to call the whole family to help you.

Sounds to me like a bunch of wild savage animals (belch). Nothing that I would care to have in my churches, schools, or hospitals (fut).

Where exactly (fut/belch/obnoxious odor) do these creatures come from (picks huge boogaar out of nose)?

I take offense at your comment. Waipahu is a safe community to live in and raise a family; the area that this person got beat is only one small portion of the community and should not reflect the community as a whole.

Sad case of polynesians/micronesians/orang atangs/animals roaming the streets for trouble. These idiots from the South Pacific think they own this island! Ship them back to lala land with a crate of bananas.

Our legal system is so backwards, if these guys would have beaten him up and then stole his identity they would be facing a life sentance. Instead, half with do a few years, one will do 10 and the others will walk. Sad times when money trumps life.

The guy who got beat to a pulp and the assailants all sound like trash to me. I got no sympathy for any of em. Looking at it objectively, the truth is probably somewhere in between the different stories being told.

Bruddah probably demanded a cigaratte, was told to go back where he came from, an argument occured, the usos overreacted to teach this guy one lesson because that's the only way they can show their manhood. Being that they have no education, are dumb as a coconut, will never contribute anything positive to society and have no prospects of ever moving out of the ghetto so they need to represent what little they have. If someone thinks i'm wrong tell me so.

Definitely hawaiian mahu, he'll seduce the rest of them and then stab them while they sleep.
