To Mufi: I forgot to include Hanabusa who did not reprimand Menor in the senate. Now it is triple-double.
These Hawaii politicians are on a role, they screw up once and then it's the domino effect. Then they get reelected.

Cougar thought he did the jail time but finds out he did not do the time.In fact...
"State Sen. Ron Menor was released from the Oahu Community Correctional Center this morning after completing his sentence for a drunk driving conviction."

Apparently you didn't get the whole story,
butthead(ron) was released yesterday afternoon. The sorry ass didn't even do 24 hours.

Definition of a legislative person of the democratic party - make laws, break laws, and get sympathy by the Senate President. What an honorable way to live and also a role model for us, especially the youth of Hawaii who are still not in the corrupt mode.

Menor had a free ride. Two days and one night coplimentary stay at our Hawaii Prison Hotel and all meals included courtesy from the taxpayers of Hawaii.

What responsibility? He spent less than 24 hours in jail and got credited for a day already served when he was arrested. You call 2 hours after arrest as time served. What kind of message is this sending out?

When Menor was first arrested, many said he would get off with a slap on the wrist, he would manipulate the system, he would pay no penalty since he's a politician, etc.
Hmmm .. I wonder what they are saying now.
Menor made a mistake and he is paying for it.
Looks like what he got qualifies as a "slap on the wrist.. with a wet noodle!"

During the Memorial Day holiday, Menor should visit the graves of members of the Armed Forces who have given their lives for our country. It would truly be a shame to have a State Senator take innocent lives due to the lack of poor judgement and a selfish undertaking. It should also be a reminder for those that get behind the wheel when they indulge in imprudent behavior such as drinking in excessive amounts and getting drunk. Be akamai and save a life of an innocent person.

No. He should pull morgue or ER duty for a couple years. On his own time. Let him get up close and personal with the dead and mashed up results of drunk driving crashes. Let him puke his guts out a few times over the mangled and mutilated corpse.

When Menor told a story of an injured foot and a missing contact lens he became popular overnight but in the wrong way. Only his lawyer and the judge believed this story and was sentenced to a two day one night stay at the OAHU PRISON HOTEL. If he could sing he could be Hawaii's american idol.

Oh Ronny, you could partner up with Kristi Yamaguchi and be on Dancing with the Stars with that bum foot of yours. Of course, you wouldn't win, especially if you can't see where you are going. That contact lense excuse is a real mystery to me. What happened Ronny, you drank too much and it fell out? Or could you not put it back in while shifting gears? Even your sons stood up for you, saying you had too much too drink. I wonder what they learn in the private school that you send them to about driving while impaired and have ONE to many. Another thing Ronny, only one or two drinks? Let's be reasonable, how can you, of all people, have one or two drinks? Too bad you didn't tell the truth from the very beginning, you are a typical politician with a law degree. That makes you a lying lawyer. Shape up Ronny, save a life before you take one. Wake up!!!!!!!!

If Menor faced the music truthfully and admitted that he was guilty to the traffic citation, there will be no story. There is no story about a person of good character. It is boring. But when you start trying to wiggle out of the net the small fish has turned into an ULUA that got away.

As far as I am concerned, Mr. Menor is yet another kinda-sober local politician in our kinda-sane local government.

Have ANOTHER mediocre day, folks.

I agree with you 100% and couldn't have said it better myself. Respect is given to those who give it. Much aloha to you, whoever you are. Locals have problems with those who come over here acting like they run the show. That's the number one reason some haoles leave Hawai`i with a bad taste in their mouth. Show respect and most will show respect right back. Come down here, run your mouth, get loud, carry on and be obnoxious. That's where you go wrong.
you must be one of those 1st generation locals. Migrated to hawaii from who knows where, lived here for a few years and shazaam, your local.
