Ke Ahi a me Ka Aihue

I am deeply saddened by the murders of three police officers, and the critical wounding of another, in Oakland yesterday. It is terribly sad for their families. It is a black day. May they rest in peace, may their families find peace. And sympathy also for the killer, who died, whose life was so pointless, so useless, so destructive, so painful, so harmful to those around him, and to anyone who knew and loved him.


I ka'u hele wawae ana i ke-ia kakahiaka, ua ho'oku au e ka luna o ekahi pu'u no 'ike i ke kaona i ka po- ele. Aia ho'i, ua 'ike i uahi ala i ka lewa po-ele, me na- ao. 'A'ole maopopo loa au i ahi ia, no laila ua hele wawae ihola i ka pu'u no ka ikena maika'i a'e, a ua 'ike i na- ula ahi 'a'ole mamao. A laila, ua lohe au i na- kalaka ahi oeoe, a koke ua ho'olilo o ke uahi mai ka ele'ele i ke keokeo, no laila ua kinai o ke ahi.

A laila, ua 'ike o ka wahine i hanahanai i na popoki home 'ole o ke kaiaulu. Maika'i nui o ia. I ka manawa i kamailioana maua, ua kalaiwa ekahi ka'a maka'i me elua maka'i ma loko.

Ua ho'omaka au i ka ho'i i ko'u hale no ka mea ua ho'omaka o ka ua, a i ka manawa i huli i ko'u alanui, ua 'ike i ekahi ka-ne me kanakolu makahiki aneane a me lauoho melemele ua aihue kekahi mau kukui ma ka pa- mua o ekahi hale i ko'u alanui. A ua kalaiwa aku o ia i ekahi kalaka me ka "iwi" ho'omoana ma hope. 'A'ole e kokua ana au no ka mea o ke kumumana'o ewalu. Mamau o poe no ka- la-kou koho.
