First photo: Police Chief Tivoli Faaumu and Lt. Audra Sellers talk to a high school student holding a “Black Lives Matter” sign Monday afternoon along Kaahumanu Avenue near Kaiser Permanente Wailuku Medical Office. The girl, who gave her name as Sofia, was among about 50 people joining in the gathering to advocate for justice for George Floyd, who died after being arrested by Minneapolis police officers May 25. Faaumu offered bottles of water to protesters while saying he supports their rights to assemble and freedom of speech. “We’re here to show our support, to let you know we take your concerns seriously,” Faaumu said as he walked along the sidewalk and talked to protesters. “We have the same goal and objective, which is to protect our community. Yes, it didn’t happen here. But it affects law enforcement officers nationwide.”
