He's my cousin and it's sad to see this happen, but justice has been served. You can't get away with things like this, he took away a life and he knew what he was doing. Now he's going to pay for the crime.

Is Cravens related to the noted marine scientist of the same last name? I thought Seth went to Kahuku High, but they state in the article that he and his friends went to La Jolla H.S.

In any case, this a sad story indeed. Why can't some people realize that there is so much more to life than bein' a bad a**? A waste of two young lives...

That's the problem with State courts, to get a conviction, the victim is treated like some piece of meat to be bargained with lesser sentences, deals and compromises of both parties. All for the best interests of "their" clients, while the victim's family has to endure the pain and suffering again.

Federal cases have NO PAROLE, why should the State have it???

I say, have a Native Indian style justice, have this fool and his friends run through a line of family members. All giving them their best "shot", then throw them in prison to lick their wounds to experience and see how it feels getting punched.

It will also serve as some "therauphic" healing functions for the victim's family???:) Sure beats having the taxpayers foot the bill for psychological treatments.

I always believe that the PUNISHMENT SHOUD FIT THE CRIME! How dare anyone act, as thougth "they" were judge, jury, and God. To inflect any kind of harm and/or death on another!..Taking one's life and a loved one from a mother, who loved her son dearly, is unforgiveable!!!!!I too, am a mother and can only imagine how this mother is feeling, as she lives the rest of her life, with out her, son. God bless her!

I was at the paddle out at Windnsea for Emery. Youtube windnsea paddle out and check it out. This is nightmare for both camps and we shouldn’t be too quick to judge. Seth and Emery were friends in high school.

Bird Rock Bandits
The Bird Rock Bandits were a La Jolla, California-based gang, members of which were accused of beating surfer Emery Kauanui Jr to death in May, 2007. The group, estimated at 12 members, has been documented by the name as suspects in a variety of assault and harassment cases in the La Jolla area. Some suspected members have claimed membership on MySpace. A notebook was also found in one suspected member's bedroom depicted symbols of the gang, swastikas, and epitaphs for "fallen soldiers." Defense attorneys deny that the men are a gang.

Why would these two Hawaiian be with White Supremace groups in La Jolla. Both of them loose! One in death and another in the pen.
