Mauna Kea Press Conference features convicted drug dealer and protester "acquitted due to mental incapacity"

The convicted felons and mentally ill among Mauna Kea protesters are starting to turn on each other.  But UH faculty members are exploiting them to blame the police instead.

Here are some snippets from an amazing KHON story based on a news release from the protesters on Mauna Kea, September 17, 2019:

Leaders of the demonstration on Mauna Kea are accusing a law enforcement officer of misconduct. They claim the officer knowingly shared false information with two protectors, trying to pit them against each other.

… Kahookahi Kanuha, one of the leaders of the Mauna Kea movement said it first started in mid August.

“I engaged in a conversation with a law enforcement officer. This officer expressed to me that Mikey Glendon…was a problem and according to them a liability to all the individuals in the Puu Honua,” Kanuha said.

Why would anybody see Mikey as a liability? 

ECRIM: Michael Glendon Criminal Transcript -- Twice “Acquitted due to mental incapacity.”

Fascinating Hawaii County PD News Release from 2011: Michael Glendon wanted after Hilo man stabbed in fight near Honolii Beach Park

Another Fascinating News Article from 2011: Glendon brandished this shark tooth Hawaiian weapon, as he asked the commission to play music on a portable player while he moved to the rhythm for the duration of his allotted time.

The situation ramped up in early September.

Glendon was involved with the construction of an unpermitted structure on Mauna Kea. 

Two days after the structure was torn down Glendon said he was approached by a special response team officer.

“I asked him why was it such an abrupt situation where they demolished our learning center? His response to me was that they received a phone call from Puu Huluhlulu, that stated I was in the learning center with a gun with children, ready to shoot it out with police,” Glendon explained.

More realistic scenario:  A protester called this fake ‘tip’ into police hoping they would overreact thus creating sympathy for the protesters.  It didn’t work. 

In a video recording of a conversation between the officer and Glendon, you can hear the officer say that the tip came from inside Puu Huluhulu.

BIVN interviewed Glendon on video as the structure is being torn down.  It would have been plain to the police that he did not have a gun and he was not in the structure since he was out in the open being interviewed.  But that's not stopping the protesters' UH faculty 'masteminds' from trying to spin this story.

Several days later Glendon said the officer later told him the tip came from Earl DeLeon and Noe Kekaulua, two kia’i (anti-telescope protesters) at Mauna Kea.

But DeLeon said that’s not true…. 

And we all believe him.  Lets just ignore his drug-dealing and family abuse convictions.

ECrim: Earl E Deleon, Kahoolawe protester, with a 26-year criminal record mostly as drug dealer also domestic abuse.

Earl E Deleon civil and traffic records are a fun read too.  Maybe this is why the protesters are upset about the Hawaii County Police traffic checkpoints on the Saddle Road.

“Law enforcement officers did not approach the building as if there were a gun man inside. The video coverage shows that the special response team did not take the lead of the operation. The officers lined up with their backs facing the structure as if the threat were from the crowd, not from within the structure. The officers were equipped with riot control gear including 4-foot-long batons. In no way did law enforcement appear prepared to confront a gun man with children,” explained (UH faculty member Andre) Perez…

Thus Perez witlessly undermines his entire story.  

“State sheriffs lining trucks along the road above the cattle guard on the Mauna Kea Access Road, shining their high beams on the kupuna tent at 1a.m. on Monday September 9th and Tuesday, September 10th. A black hawk helicopter flying low level over the kupuna tent on Tuesday, September 10th.”

Perez also sited the recent addition of sobriety check points manned by special response team officers and the placement of sheriffs along Daniel K. Inouye Highway as two new tactics law enforcement adopted to get a rise out of protectors.

Noenoe Wong-Wilson, (another) one of the revered kupuna (numerous UH faculty) on Mauna Kea, said they are are hoping for a full investigation and that the officer be immediately removed from Mauna Kea. 

Translation: They are trying to get the identity of an officer without paying a $5,000 bounty.

Hawaii County Mayor Harry Kim said he is saddened (fooled) by the news.

“I hear the words, I feel the tension,” Kim said.

“There’s no department involvement here. There’s no government involvement here. And the only thing that’s going to resolve this in any way that’s satisfactory is an official investigation be held and I will support that…I have absolute trust in the people I work with–the police the, DOCARE people, the sheriffs office. They was not any kind of departmental plot to do this.”…

Right Harry.  Lets all stop for a month or two while somebody dissects the protesters’ latest bs story.
