Carroll talks about our inefficient government, starting with Mayor Caldwell and the City Council to Governor Ige and the legislators. Examples include moving the homeless around, the problems on Mauna Kea, and the dysfunctional Department of Land and Natural Resources (note recent news about Suzanne Case and the case of the sea cucumbers). Hawaii
is turning into a police state instead of the state of aloha.
Carroll explains more about why the sea cucumber case is so political.
Carroll also talks about DLNR Chief Jason Redulla's facebook page. He is the acting chief administrator of the Department of Conservation and Resources Enforcement (DOCARE). His facebook page had a picture of his official badge, an assault rifle, and the quote "say hello to my little friend" from the very violent movie Scarface. Not in the news is the fact
that there was also a post of an open letter to his ex-wife. Chairperson of the DLNR, Suzanne Case' only comment regarding the facebook posting was that it was Redulla's personal gun, and page (see HawaiiNewsNow story).
In light of recent events, such as the Charleston shooting and last year's Santa Barbara shooting, this is disturbing. Redulla's facebook page has been taken down. Link here for pictures and letter.
Unfortunately, while Suzanne Case orchestrates the big sea cucumber issue, there are even bigger problems behind the scenes that need to be looked into.
Listen to Carroll on THE JOHN NOLAN SHOW, 7/20/15, as he discusses more about the DLNR and Redulla..
Callers debate who is in control and what the people can do. As one caller states, "The cost of paradise is the cost of wastefulness."
Carroll starts a discussion about the Department of Health and their efforts to impede any investigation into their workings, cover-ups, and keeping the public in the dark. He talks about a case involving Schnitzer Steel suing the state and Island Recycling over environmental harm by Island Recycling. More information to come. Link here to the court document.
On July 17 Carroll appeared on Think Tech Hawaii. "Host Jay Fidell speaks with radio show host/environmentalist Carroll Cox
(The Carroll Cox Show) about the challenges of guns, violence and
climate change". Link here to Thiink Tech Hawaii
