Wharf Cinema Center should heed QKC suit
The Wharf Cinema Center in Lahaina should heed the warning signs from Queen Ka’ahumanu Center and spare themselves future litigation. QKC is currently being sued over their failure to provide security while using their property as a transfer station for the Maui Bus.
At The Wharf Cinema Center’s county bus transfer station, there are over 40 buses per day dropping off passengers. They provide one security guard whose only function is to call 911. There are no security cameras! There are fights on Luakini Street almost daily now and a constant police response at The Wharf.
A private commercial shopping mall is not the proper place for a bus transfer hub. Unlike QKC, The Wharf has the opportunity to do the right thing before something happens to someone on their property.
