The recent Sledge Hammering by the Hawaii State Law Makers to Homeless Peoples “belongings”, reflects the serious neglect to ensure the diginity & rights of our Homeless Population. With many of our lawmakers profiling homeless individuals with the sledge hammer, the desensitizing of the individual human being who is not afforded basic human rights is a crime. And yet the corruption, mis-management of funds and fraud goes on at many Homeless Shelter without any hammer coming down to stop or investigate these unlawful acts.

Yes, Homeless People are everywhere, working in the cubical next to you, in the line at the bank or grocery store. Sitting in the front row of a High School Teacher’s Class. We interview 19 year old Kaniala Adolpho who was adopted at age 3 by a Hawaiian family and raised on Molokai, lost his adopted father and came to Oahu to enter the Job Corps only to find himself on the streets of Honolulu Homeless, he shares his hardships to remind us of the real faces of our homeless population. Kaniala and many of our Hawaii teens are experiencing first hand the hardships and racial discrimination of Homelessness. Jericho Juan and a group of concerned Kapolei High School students, some who have been homeless themselves, created a Public Service Announcement to voice and share the real issues and the faces of our growing homeless population.

Many homeless citizens are being harassed and the unlawful application of laws used, along with improper conduct by Law Makers, lack of adequate council & prejudices in the courts that further harms the homeless individual.
