By Video @ 7:00 PM :: 11847 Views :: Ethics, Law Enforcement, Police, Politicians

Quotes from Don Chapman, former MidWeek Editor and Honolulu Advertiser Columnist: 

“(In 1977 KHON Scott Shirai) … reported that the Head of a State Board had been involved in a heroin bust at Punchbowl cemetery … (I tracked him down in Cleveland he said) it was Larry.” 

“Francis Keala, the former Chief of Police here, told several people that Larry's reputation is directly attributable to what Larry did at HPD.  And HPD asked him to go out and mediate gangland disputes—syndicate disputes.  And he’d go out and sit down two tough guys – and you know with these guys there’s no backing down – and he’d talk to this guy, talk to that guy and they’d walk out shake hands and they’re pals.”
