Tax dollars being wasted in the judiciary and MPD

Hey folks, you might want to know how your tax dollars are being wasted in the judiciary and MPD.

Imagine your 62-year-old, hardworking professional mother or grandmother being handcuffed at her house of 25 years at 8 a.m. while getting ready for work and put in jail. Why? For being 15 minutes late for a court hearing to contest a traffic violation of a ridiculous 20 mph speed zone Waikapu side of Waiale Road in Wailuku.

Yes, folks, that really just happened here on Maui. Repeat criminal offenders run free but grandma promptly goes to jail with $1,000 bail bond for no valid reason.

Do we still call this government a democracy? Are there any thinking humans behind the robotic protocols?
