Hawaii News Now: Community Expected to Demand Action Tonight in Hawaii Chinatown Crime Spree


This iconic image of Hawaii is in stark contrast to the crime & filth in Honolulu’s Chinatown

Merchants and residents in Hawaii’s Chinatown says crime in their neighborhood has never been this bad, reports  Hawaii News Now.

In just the last two weeks, police say there have been one burglary, five car break-ins and 26 thefts.

“Merchants are fed up. They have very little faith that they can rely on government to do anything,” said Chu Lan Shubert-Kwock, President of the Chinatown Business & Community Association. “They also feel like they are not making money in Chinatown. One of the reasons why Chinatown is suffering is because of the image—it’s a dirty place, it’s not a safe place.”

A large crowd is expected at the Downtown Chinatown neighborhood board meeting at 7 p.m. at the Pauahi Recreation Center where concerns and possible soluations will be discussed.

A report in Hawaii News Now  shows increasing frustration about drug dealers, public filth and overall safety in Chinatown.
