The photo on the front page of the June 8 edition of The Maui News of murderer Gerald Galaway was disgusting. Rather than a thousand words, that picture was worth three - cold blooded murderer.
The image of that smiling or smirking murderer said to me: "Boy, did I get away with murder and I won't have to live in prison for the rest of my life."
From the pretrial information The Maui News published at the time of the murder, there seemed to be no question of a second-degree murder verdict.
And no comment from the prosecutor regarding the reduced charges? The residents of Maui County and the state of Hawaii are entitled to know how and why this apparent miscarriage took place.
