LIHU‘E — A wanted Kapa‘a man surrendered to authorities earlier this week, a county press release states.

Akoni Davis, 22, turned himself in at the Lihu‘e police station Monday. He was wanted on one count of failure to appear and two counts of criminal contempt of court. His bail was set at $200,000.

Davis last appeared in Drug Court on Jan. 12. He was scheduled to be in court again on Feb. 9, but failed to appear, the release states.

On an unrelated incident, Davis and Vicente Hilario, 25, were reportedly in a getaway car connected with a shooting robbery in August in the Safeway parking lot in Waipouli.

In that incident, Kyle Akau, 25, was charged with armed robbery, and charges against Davis and Hilario were dismissed without prejudice, meaning they could be brought up again at a later date.

Aureo Moore had been allegedly robbed of $900 in cash, plus 150 oxycodone pills and 50 morphine pills. Both substances are controlled. Moore’s father, Robert Moore, said his son had prescriptions from a Kilauea doctor and had just cashed an insurance reimbursement check.

On Dec. 17 Moore was murdered in broad daylight in the middle of a public road near Anahola Beach Park. He received five .25 caliber shots from behind, two of them to the back of his head.

Hilario has been charged with the crime, and is currently incarcerated at Kaua‘i Community Correctional Facility in Wailua.

    The killing of a white man by a local man is not so much about "drugs." There had been a preliminary hearing in which young Aureo testified against the offenders in the Safeway robbery. There was to be a hearing the end of December, where Aureo had been court ordered to testify--COURT ORDERED!

    It is the shocking, in your face, truth to the organized crime on Kauai. This young man, Hilario, recklessly and sloppily yelled it out for the whole world to hear:

    "I can do anything I damned well please. Me and my friends can abuse, threaten, set-up, and kill any Haole witness we want--in cold-blood, at a public beach, where a child witnessed the murder, in broad daylight. Why?? Because we can! We are connected; you are not. I'm a Rapozo! I can. If you don't like it, go back to where your came!! THINGS ARE DONE DIFFERENTLY HERE!"

    Yes, things are done "differently here," and things are done "differntly" in other places, too. Places that are only a plane ride away. Laws? Laws of nature.

    AiMoKea, I'm with you, all witnesses need to be protected by the courts. ???

    Did you follow blogging/LTE around the parole officer, Dmorel, and how this woman and her family were threatened by judges, supervisors?

    I hear the corrupt thugs in power ki*l people and throw them in cane fields, into the valley bush...where ever. They must be dirty all the way up to the top--Chief Justice, Governor. Gov. doing anything? Obviously not.

    A woman parole officer threatened by judges, court admin.because a pimp had people in his back pocket..a lot of people.

    She kept going. How many threats on her life?

    This poor family needs relief. Courts trashed. Head south of the border where your story will be heard. Maybe some relief will appear for you.

    GILGAMESH, you may be right that Akoni was once a good kid. Then, maybe he began hanging with kids whose families are connected to the corrupt courts/OPA, beginning to believe he is untouchable.

    Isn't this what he, Hilario, Akau, Makauna and any of Hilario's associates were reassurred--let off the hook, allowed to commit crimes without punishment, court appointed attorneys. Placed on a silver platter, entitled, spoiled rotten til the whole issue stunk to the end--a cold brazen murder of a witness.

    These "kids" (young men) never held accountable/made responsible for their actions. This may have helped these young men become strong/capable.

    Hilario had strikes against him. Then, his grandmother pulls strings to get him off the hook. Then, he kills a white witness in cold-blood, leaves a surviving family, and court thugs play US courts like a fiddle--no justice to be served to loss of life.

    Arrogant, cruel...has the time arrived that they will pay the piper? Natural progression.

    I really hate it when this kind of cr@p carries serious charges with it. Look pal, this might go over big in your insular, provincial community; but, it doesn't draw any respect whatsoever here.

    Welcome back Akoni! Glad to see you back in the hoosegow, safe and sound.

    I suggest you take the advice of getting a protective order (good luck with that, by the way), then tell the detectives working on the case all you know of Vicente's rambling about his plans to kill Aureo, or any similar intent.

    I bet you could strike a plea deal if you give them the juice, or, you could just become one with your "celly" for the next 10 years. If that's the case, I wonder how you would look after your celly gets you all prettied up each evening before heading off for your usual nightly romantic dinner... in the mess hall.

    He'd roll over on you in a heartbeat. Are you going to stand by and let him turn on you? Do you really think he's your "loyal" friend? He's going to do whatever necessary to save HIS hide, not yours. Look at what he's doing with Maukana. Hilario's trying to put the rap on him! Just ask around the jail. You'll see what a "good friend" he really is.

    Whatcha gonna do?

    I will state again that the "war on drugs" does not force any person to become a drug addict. I defy anyone to give a scenario in which someone was forced to start using drugs because of the war on drugs. Just one scenario is all I ask.

    While legalizing drugs *might* be an effective way to minimize the violence associated with drug dealing, and *might* end the associated corruption, the only surefire way of eradicating the drug problem and its concomitant ills is for people to stop using. No customers, no business. I'm not trying to be a prude here. I'm not talking about denying people valid medicinal uses of drugs. I'm talking about people taking responsibility for their actions and not looking for the government to coddle them in their irresponsible behavior. Your actions and your choices CAN and often DO have an effect on the environment around you, and if people can't muster the sense of personal responsibility to live with such realities, that's their problem.

    On Kauai "War on Drugs" is just like the way Pakistan sheltered bin Laden. Preserving the menace to get funds to fight the menace.

    While we funnel money to Green Harvest, LEO, etc, hard drugs are coming in every day (and considering they can ONLY arrive on a plane or in a shipping container they OUGHT to be pretty eay to find ya?), and the criminals who take them are being protected by the people who are supposed to stop them.

    But if we actually DID stop the corruption, then the whole money machine breaks down. People who are supposed to uphold the law couldn't pay their mortgages without the extra corruption money they get paid to look the other way from the criminals who are destroying our community.

    One example. Why is there no drug treatment center on Kauai? Is it: A) because no one wants one, or B) because there's lots of $$ to be made -at all levels- by having junkies on the street buying oxycodone and meth?
    ...OH and shooting at each other in Safeway in mid-day gunfights.

    So, I don't understand. Are you suggesting that the "war on drugs" CAUSED this kid you've known so long and who was "once a good boy" to become what he is? If so, can you explain how?

    People make choices. The war on drugs doesn't force people to choose to take up a drug habit, so I don't get the connection here. Now, you can talk about the amount of money being spent on this war, and the violence you say is caused by it, but I think it is very wrong to blame the war on people starting a drug habit. Do people not take personal responsibility for ANYTHING anymore? Is nobody accountable for their own actions, EVER? What's going on here? I've been alive for 40+ years, not ever easy years, and have never--NOT ONCE--even been tempted to take up a drug habit.

    I agree the war on drugs is a failure and insane.
    But FREE? I mean if drugs are free then why not food?
    I don't have answers and my solution was to stop using.
    It helped " my world "
    It is really all I have some control over.

    My opinion today was motivated by posts from Mr. Trennoche some time back. Taking a far away look at earth, clearly the leaders in all phases of leadership are failing the citizens of the world. Love and Aloha are excluded from deliberations.

    If anyone has answers or solutions would you please come forward. Earth conccept generated answers, save them for a chat over tea. We need some new concepts from a higher level of consciousness. Many of us are ready to listen.

    If all these drugs were legal and FREE (via governemnt distribution centers), yes 100% FREE (you gotta take a FREE shovelful home with you, would this story about drugged out people just be fiction.

    Well, because drugs are illegal and not free, people steal and kill for them worldwide. So today's story is not fiction. It is sadly another reality program.

    Every day the War on Drugs gets worse. More formerly innocents become addicted and turn into thieves, bums, welfare recipients who melt into the free-for-them bankrupting medical/welfare system. They lose their ability to be productive citizens. Some injure and kill others, and on and on. Then more penal system workers.

    Legal and FREE drugs may just be the halt to this runaway nonsense. Add in "you don't work; you don't eat"; maybe we can turn this around.

    When other galaxy observers from out there see the social, religious, gov't systems on Earth, they must be saying, "that place is sure wacked out and filthy".

    Hopefully the jailers will keep Davis and Hilario well apart from each other.

    Get an ORDER OF PROTECTION for Akoni Davis.

    One witness killed in cold-blood in cowardly acts by Hilario and Makauna, that a Tongan man said to the effect, "What f*ckin' cowards. Be like men and fight. No one takes a human's life and gets away with it." Well.

    Word in KCCC is Hilario is trying to pawn his killing on to David Makauna, accoridng to one person inside, Hilario saying he didn't kill the witness--that David did.

    David, best you cooperate fully with Detectives. Watch your back w/ PA Shaylene or First Deputy PA Jake Delaplane. You will become one more "sacrificial lamb," as they collude with the judges, Attorney Shigemoto, and your very own court appointed private attorney.

    You won't stand a chance if DA and judges decide one more time who is the pawn--this time you while a Rapozo walks; U know how it goes. Get Makauna an ORDER OF PROTECTION.

    This is getting messy. All witnesses need an ORDER OF PROTECTION. Green light list hatched against corrupt in power? Way to go.
