CALL TO ACTION – TESTIMONY ON HB-2125 IS NOW OPEN!

from Honolulu Republican Party, March 19, 2022

The Senate committee on Education has scheduled a public hearing on Wednesday March 23 at 3:00PM; in Conference Room 229 & via video conference for HB-2125, and testimony is now being accepted.

HB-2125 HD2

Report Title:  Harassment of an Educational Worker; Misdemeanor; DOE; BOE.

Description:  Requires DOE and BOE to take certain steps to better address harassment of its employees. Creates the offense of harassment of an educational worker for disrupting or interfering with the administration or functions of any school, school administration office, or school board.

HB-2125 is not about safety, we wish it was. No, HB-2125 is about criminalizing parental involvement in their keiki’s education. HB-2125 is a warning to parents, tutus, aunties, uncles, if you have a problem with what the Hawaii education oligarchs are teaching, introducing and exposing our keiki to, tough, keep it to yourself or risk a possible $2,000 in fines or up to one year in jail. HB-2125 is about turning neighbor against neighbor, but that’s the plan. Keep us all divided, so bit by bit, we don’t realize they're chipping away at our parental rights, freedoms, and liberties; while indoctrinating our keiki.

Current law (HRS §711-1106) already addresses the issue of harassment, but that’s not good enough. The Board of Education, Department of Education and Hawaii State Teachers Association union want to make themselves a special class with special considerations and special laws.

§711-1106  Harassment
     (1)  A person commits the offense of harassment if, with intent to harass, annoy, or alarm any other person, that person:
          (a)  Strikes, shoves, kicks, or otherwise touches another person in an offensive manner or subjects the other person to offensive physical contact;
          (b)  Insults, taunts, or challenges another person in a manner likely to provoke an immediate violent response or that would cause the other person to reasonably believe that the actor intends to cause bodily injury to the recipient or another or damage to the property of the recipient or another;
          (c)  Repeatedly makes telephone calls, facsimile transmissions, or any form of electronic communication as defined in section 711-1111(2), including electronic mail transmissions, without purpose of legitimate communication;
          (d)  Repeatedly makes a communication anonymously or at an extremely inconvenient hour;
          (e)  Repeatedly makes communications, after being advised by the person to whom the communication is directed that further communication is unwelcome; or
           (f)  Makes a communication using offensively coarse language that would cause the recipient to reasonably believe that the actor intends to cause bodily injury to the recipient or another or damage to the property of the recipient or another.
     (2)  Harassment is a petty misdemeanor. [L 1972, c 9, pt of §1; am L 1973, c 136, §9(b); am L 1992, c 292, §4; am L 1996, c 245, §2; am L 2009, c 90, §1]
