UPDATE: Letter and Photos: “Molokai Supports Yacht

In Kaunakakai, greeting the vistors with aloha.  Some people on Molokai support the yacht....

 

Tragically, the opportunity to liberate Molokai from Ritte's roving gang of welfare bums has been lost, no arrests were made....

Maui News: In 30 years of community activism, Molokai's Walter Ritte Jr. said he never saw anything like Saturday at dawn at Kaunakakai Harbor: about 80 cruise ship protesters matched up against at least twice as many county, state and federal officers. (Tragically, they did not take the opportunity to make any arrests.)

"There were at least 40 guys on just the Coast Guard boats," Ritte said. "It was a million-dollar Homeland Security operation. That was a real boost to the economy."

The U.S. Coast Guard told residents that they intended to enforce a temporary "security zone" around Kaunakakai Harbor while the small Safari Explorer resumed controversial visits to the Friendly Isle.

The zone was set up Friday, and it included the channel entrance and waters around it. State officials said it was to be enforced one hour before the ship enters and exits the harbor….

(Naturally Walter Ritte suddenly said he had no intention of organizing another harbor blockade. Some people might actually believe him. Others are probably wondering why he has not been arrested for obstructing public harbors and public roads.)

Ritte had said the security zone was unnecessary and "overkill," but he said members of his group had told officials they would not interfere with the ship's arrival.

Ritte said he wants to "figure out what the hell happened here."

The Safari Explorer returned to Molokai on January 21, 2012, and was met by protesters. This is a report on the event and current situation.

 

KFVE VIDEO: No arrests as protesters greet cruise yacht on Molokai (Top prize for unintended irony goes to one of Ritte’s ignorant socialist idiots photographed holding a sign which reads: “Money and Greed are your Motivations”. Ritte of course is the guy who used his welfare rent-a-mob in an unsuccessful attempt to steal Molokai Ranch from its rightful owners. Ritte’s effort was part of a windfarm deal with $50M in financial backing from FirstWind. No “Money and Greed” there, eh?)
