So very sorry to hear about the murders of the Police Officers. I could be wrong but I always thought it was extremely hard to own a gun in Hawaii?

Whites being whites againšŸ˜....

Amazing how I donā€™t see the gang of anti-black LEOs and their supporters on this story making comments that generalize every person of the same race this guy is. Nope.... Thereā€™s absolutely no racism in policing.
