Carroll discusses Governor Ige's proclamation regarding native Hawaiians protesting building an additional Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) on Mauna Kea. See the attached document. It is eight pages long! Carroll asks, what brought Ige to the point of invoking the National Guard? Carroll then tells us why this is offensive. It is an abuse of a people and their culture.
Carroll also talks about the corruption of the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) and why they are a problem. Carroll explains how the department is handling the additional DOCARE officers sent to Mauna Kea for law enforcement. Apparently, there are 25 to 35 officers on Mauna Kea, with some allegedly being paid overtime for 24 hours a day, while crying about having to arrest their kapuna and own family members. Carroll asks, who or what is paying for the overtime, and how much will it be taking away from the protection of our natural resources?
The second hour Carroll talks more about corruption at the DLNR and retaliation against those who speak out. Today he addresses tolerance for workplace violence. Carroll refers to a lawsuit filed by Wyatt Kam against Robert Farrell and Carlton Helm (see attached Civil No. 19-0052). Note, the courts removed the DLNR from the lawsuit but the overall complaint regarding assault is still active.
Another incident involving Carton Helm and workplace violence resulted in Helm being placed on RoPA (Relief of Police Authority). Carroll has posted an audio file where Robert Farrell, Chief of DOCARE at the time, is talking to the conservation officers and telling them not to complain. We were informed the RoPA was lifted from Carlton Helms and reportedly they did not do an investigation. Link here to the recording. Carlton Helm is now one of the officers working on Mauna Kea.
The final topic regards documents Carroll requested under the Uniform Information Practices Act (UIPA). He just received the documents from the state after waiting over two years. Carroll tells us what the state said about it taking so long and how this involves Governor Ige.
