Justice For Malia’s Death
From Change.org, January, 2020
On January 11, 2020. Our beloved Malia Soma-Valmoja, was the victim of a brutal and heartless shooting in Whitmore Village fields.
According to the article in KHON2 news, dated December 20, 2019, lawmakers had numerous complaints from the community, but the ADC was looking for resources, all the while the State spent millions to assist in Mauna Kea, yet this issue has been going on for many many years.
This is straight up negligence and irresponsible of the State’s behalf, the representatives was trying to urge the State into taking action.
Malia got shot execution style, no matter what the reason was no human deserves to die in that manner.
The land near Kamehameha Highway and Nui Avenue is owned by the state agency Agribusiness Development Corporation or ADC.
This statement by Rep. Amy Perruso states, “I’ve heard reports of homeless encampments, but also illegal drug trafficking, even sex trafficking reports, so these are really serious allegations,” said Rep. Amy Perruso, who represents the district.
ADC acknowledged that there is some criminal activity going on but said they did not want to send sheriffs there and clear it out because criminals would just come back, so it would be a waste of resources.
State Sen. Donovan Dela Cruz, who also represents the area, disagrees.
This Article is written by Manolo Morales. But nothing was done!
Chains and huge boulders was not keeping the crime out.
The outcome of their negligence is the death of Malia Soma-Valmoja, who is a living human being, a mother, daughter, sister, niece, cousin, friend, a living life so brutally taken.
I ask each of you to please sign this petition so we can have justice for Malia and avenge her death so she will not have died in vain.
Thank you for all the love and support in this critical movement we are making. #JusticeForMalia
