All we have to do is train them like we did with the fireworks. The Oahu Y2K Day probably had the best fireworks display in the entire free world. It was a war zone even before nightfall.<quoted text> I agree. I think Deedy may not have been drunk at all, and it's just a matter of "Get the Haole," because they are so scared of the idea of a haole getting away with killing one of their local thugs. Deedy did us all a great service, but local thugs and their families fear the same fate.
They are used to not fearing the law, or the victims. they have always been free to beat people up at will, never fearing consequences for their violence.
Fast forward; no longer do the people stuff one or two shopping carts full of fireworks at the local Longs store. The last few years i have been amazed at the turnaround of very few explosions of illegal and even the legal fireworks. Never did i thought we could stop the ' cultural custom'.
