Want to know what Abercrombie’s scheme to bring prisoners back from the mainland is all about? Here is your answer:

9-11 Truthers, Sovereignty Activists, Defense Bar, Leading Democrats and Convicted Felons Demand that New Prison be as Resort-Like as Possible

Calls for a Pu‘uhonua for inmates at Kulani Correctional Facility hearing

H247 Jan 23, 2013: There were about 100 people gathered for the hearing and although nobody directly spoke out against the facility reopening (Imagine that, not a single person opposes closing a school and converting it into a prison.) there was concern as to the programs offered for inmates. (In other words, they have a school plan for the prison, keep reading….)

The group Ohana Ho‘opakele (The ‘Secretary’ of Ohana Ho’opakele is full time protester, 9-11 conspiracy theorist, convicted federal felon, and federal ex-con Jim Albertini.) submitted testimony to create a Pu‘uhonua (a place of sanctuary, peace and safety) where all inmates can heal in a wellness center instead of a traditional prison setting. Several people cited the disproportional large percentage of Hawaiians incarcerated in Hawaii’s prison system and the need for an alternative rehabilitation method more sovereignty activists.

The facility had been leased to the Hawaii National Guard for the Youth ChalleNGe Academy.

There will be another public hearing at 5 p.m. Thursday (Jan 31) at the Keaau Community Center.  (Another Hilo-style public meeting circus in the making with the older generation of ex-con sovereignty activists eager to train the new generation of ex-cons to come to public meetings and transform them into a circus.)

Justice Reinvestment: Sovereignty Activists Given Grant to Recruit Juvenile Delinquents

Maui News Jan 24, 2013: Two weeks ago, the boys made the commitment to the program in a ceremony called "Ka I Mua" or "to be cast into the company of men," which requires them to meet once a week and once a month overnight for training.

In their first year, youths will endure the physical fitness portion of the project and learn disciplines such as the hune ka nalo (girding on of the loincloth), the kalii (catching of the spear) and the aha awa (form of speaking).

George Kaimiola, office manager and project assistant of the program, said many of the male youths are referred from groups, such as the Positive Outreach Intervention project, Queen Lili'uokalani Children's Center and Child Protective Services.

The program had been operating informally for nearly two decades before officially organizing this year….

it received a grant from the Administration for Native Americans last year. Ka Meheu 'Ohu O Ka Honu, a nonprofit that seeks to retain and perpetuate traditional Hawaiian values, is the sponsoring organization.

He said one of the reasons he started the program was to answer the voices in a book titled, "Native Men Remade: Gender and Nation in Contemporary Hawai'i," which was written by one of the program's former members, Ty P. Kawika Tengan.

DPS: Kulani Prison can only partly be used to train Convicts as Sovereignty Activists

SA January 27, 2013: State public safety officials presented the findings of those studies, released in November, at a public meeting held Tuesday in Hilo. A similar meeting is scheduled for Thursday at the Keaau Community Center.

"I think in general people are supportive, (but) there are some concerns that were expressed at the recent hearing," said Onishi, who attended. "Obviously the Hawaiian community understands that there's a significant amount of Hawaiians that are incarcerated, and they really want to make sure that the programs are in line with the Hawaiian culture and learning about their roots."

The hearing drew almost 100 residents, many of whom called for Kulani to be turned into a puuhonua, or a sanctuary for Native Hawaiian offenders in need of cultural healing and transformation.

Department of Public Safety Director Ted Sakai said he has met with Ohana Ho‘opakele, a nonprofit group in support of building a puuhonua. Sakai said he is open to incorporating puu­honua-type programs at Kulani, but the department will not be able to turn the whole facility into a puuhonua.

"I think there's a lot of room for us to work together," Sakai said.

Onishi said he, too, would support offering puuhonua treatment programs at Kulani, and he trusts the state's corrections officials to strike an appropriate balance….

He said housing a prisoner at Kulani will cost about $82 a day compared with the $65 per-day cost of using Arizona facilities….
