Kalihi curfew Constitutionality questions raised on the air

by Larry Geller

In looking further into the Kalihi curfew story today, I tried to find out how many people are giving up their civil liberties in exchange for the safety that should have been provided to them by adequate security patrols and policing.

I can’t get a reliable number. Hawaii News Now (KGMB etc.) posted an article headlined Thousands under curfew following rash of violence at Honolulu housing project. Given that each unit is typically occupied by more than one person, that may be as close as can be learned for the moment. Yes, thousands.

Following some emailing, the Constitutional questions raised by the Kalihi curfews are highlighted in a short spot I did for Free Speech Radio News this morning. Audio and text at Headlines for Thursday, April 1, 2010.

FSRN is carried by 111 stations in the USA and worldwide, and of course anywhere there is Internet access. It has been a beacon of alternative journalism. Their website notes that they have:

Reporters all over the United States and the globe. Free Speech Radio News has scores of reporters who file stories from all regions of the United States and from every continent except Antarctica.

In Hawaii, it is broadcast on Kauai by KKCR 90.9 FM, Tues, Thurs 5:30p.m., and on Maui by KAKU-LP 88.5 FM, Mon-Fri 6:00-6:30p.m.

I usually listen to FSRN each night or the next day as a podcast. It follows the evening news on WBAI which is extremely well-done and interesting even if you’re not from New York (IMHO). You could be a reporter for FSRN also. Check how on their website.
