News Release from Cayetano Campaign Saturday March 17, 2012
We were extremely shocked and disappointed to learn today that one or more individuals have fired numerous gunshots at my campaign banners placed at the Cycle City motorcycle dealership near Honolulu International Airport.
This is a direct attempt to stifle our right and the owner’s right of free speech. Today, that right to free speech was not only infringed upon, but was done so in a way that was criminal and extremely dangerous to all employees and patrons at Cycle City.
There is simply no place for this kind of violence in a political campaign in Hawaii or anywhere else in the country. The Cayetano campaign has established a reward of $5,000 and encourages anyone who has information about this incident to please call the police or crime stoppers.
