Police Roadblocks Now to Keep People at Home

LIHU`E, KAUA`I (Ben Caxton) — Governor Ige has asked people nicely to stay at home. So has Kaua`i Mayor Kawakami who added a nighttime curfew for the island just to make sure everyone knew he was serious about it. Both have signed emergency proclamations to that effect and local police have said residents have been respectful of the extreme measures. In yet another escalation, however, police have been asked to set up islandwide roadblocks, checking for what isn’t exactly clear, but violators of the curfew or the stay at home order or who perhaps may have a fever and be sneezing too much will be subject to the full force of the emergency order laws – misdemeanor citations, fines of up to $5,000 and up to a year in jail where perhaps officials can send you to the nearly empty Hawai’i prison system where there will be space to maintain social distancing at all times so you won’t be at risk of catching and spreading the Wuhan Coronavirus to others.
