Zane Logan Has Been Getting Special Treatment for Years Because Father Worked for Attorney General
HNN: … “He enters and you can see through the drapes that there’s a struggle,” Boyd said, adding the woman complained that she was injured so police were called.
“But they didn’t do anything about it,” Boyd claims.
The incident was described when Boyd requested a temporary restraining order. Another surveillance video shows Logan allegedly trying to set fire to a camera using a lighter.
Boyd said Logan often mentioned his family and father when confronted.
His father, Arthur “Joe” Logan, will soon be sworn in as Honolulu’s next police chief.
During the 2020 and 2021 incidents, he was a criminal investigator with the state Attorney General’s office.
Days later, on May 24, his son was arrested for terroristic threatening stemming from an incident at Ala Moana Beach Park.
Zane Logan is due back in court Tuesday for that case, unrelated to any of Boyd’s complaints.
Interim HPD Chief Rade Vanic said when Logan was arrested he did mention his relationship to the incoming chief….
At a recent police commission meeting, Vanic told the panel that Arthur Joe Logan was notified ahead of his son’s arrest. Vanic insisted that no special treatment was given to Zane Logan.
But Boyd struggles with that statement because, he said, he called HPD about a half dozen times during run-ins with Logan.
But Logan was not arrested.
“He keeps coming back,” said Attorney Michael Green, who has been speaking to Boyd about the case. “(Logan) won’t stop and the police don’t stop him.”
Boyd was so scared of Logan, he purchased a firearm and keeps a can of pepper spray close by.
Both, he said, had to be pointed at Logan during encounters.
“I’m going to f*** you up, old man,” Boyd said Logan told him during one of those encounters.
“I called the police and they came, and it was the same thing, they didn’t even take a police report.”…
She was Logan’s co-defendant in the alleged attack at Ala Moana Beach Park but charges against her have since been dismissed.
(Threaten to slice a dude with a razor blade. Walk free. No ‘special treatment.’ And nobody investigating the obvious human trafficking or using the potential felony assault charge as leverage in the investigation.)
Logan remains in the Oahu Community Correctional Center ….

California Eco Lawyers File Red Hill Lawsuit
SA: … Community group Wai Ola Alliance (actually ‘7th Generation Advisors’ of Santa Monica, CA) formed last year to demand the Navy make repairs to the aging facility and gave the Navy a 90-day notice of its intent to sue just weeks before a military jet fuel spill in November contaminated the Navy’s water system that serves over 93,000 Oahu residents, most of them military families.
WOA announced Monday that it had formally filed its lawsuit. The group (usual suspects) will be represented by Daniel Cooper of San Francisco-based Sycamore Law Inc. and Honolulu attorney William Harrison of Harrison & Matsuoka….

Parolee’s Arrest Years After Hawaii Office Loses Contact Upheld
L360: … Hawaii officials acted lawfully when they detained a woman on parole after officials were unable to locate her for seven years, according to the Ninth Circuit.
The seven-year delay in Elizabeth Cornel’s arrest didn’t violate the due process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment because she was “largely responsible for the delay,” according to the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Her arrest also wasn’t unreasonable under the Fourth Amendment because the parole office reasonably believed she violated her parole, the court affirmed June 10.
Cornel was evicted from her apartment in 2011 while she was on parole, and ...

UH Invites You to Use King Tides to Take Fake Pictures of Fake Sea Level Rise
SA: … The University of Hawaii Sea Grant College once again invites citizen scientists to help document king tides in the state through photos on Tuesday and Wednesday.
King tides, or perigean spring tides, according to the college, are “the highest astronomical tides of the year,” and are seen when the moon is at its closest point to the Earth in its monthly orbit, as well as when the sun, the moon, and the Earth are in alignment.
This typically occurs in Hawaii during the months of July and August, as well as in December and January….
(And so we can use these pics of tidal action to claim that sea level rise is already affecting people in low lying areas.)
