Killing atop Tantulus in Honolulu, HI.

Last week there was a multiple homicide atop what is called Round Top Drive here in Honolulu, HI.  Three people were murdered and then another three were threatened with their life and then robbed at gun point.

The story goes that this mentally ill guy suffering from paranoid schizophrenia took a taxi up to Round Top Drive, had a struggle perhaps trying to rob the taxi driver, then shot and killed him.  Unfortunately, there was a couple there taking pictures of the stars.  The couple, in their early 50s, parents to one daughter, were gunned down in cold blood for being in the wrong place at the wrong time.  It’s the same case or type of scenario that plays out ONLY in movies.  Where there are witnesses to a crime therefore they must be put away.  This is the same exact thing that happened.

From there, the suspect went to a house using the taxi that he just stole.  He knocked on a door.  When someone answered the door, he pulled a gun and made his way in.  At this point and time it was a home invasion/robbery.  He tied up the two people that were in the house, threatened to kill them if they did not cooperate.  Upon leaving, a house keeper came from next door to make sure the couple were alright as she had heard that there was a shooting atop Round Top Drive.  The housekeeper met the gun man at the door and the housekeeper too was gagged and bound.

Luckily the housekeeper was able to free herself and untie the rest of the victims as well as call the police.

The police were able to cut the suspect off as he was in a stolen car he had just stolen.

He’s now in police custody and his bail is set at $25,000,000.00.  Yes, you read that right, TWENTY FIVE MILLION.  However, I think he should not have any bail.  You see, his family comes from a VERY rich background.  They’ve owned land here in Hawaii and he comes from a very successful family.  I am more than certain they can bail him out.

This is where I get very upset.  With this crazy motherfucker out on the loose, who is to say he won’t find another gun, go and gun down more people?  He isn’t okay.  He is legally mental.  He is schizophrenic.  But the thing is, how can someone who suffers from schizophrenia be so calculated and carry out something this complex?  You’d think they would be hearing voices or seeing things that would fuck their plans up, right?  At least I do.  Maybe I’m being ignorant towards schizophrenia but I could have sworn they did not have this type of capacity to carry out such a planned and calculated murder/robbery of this caliber.

Suffice to say, I will be VERY scared if he is released from jail.  If he is bailed, I will fear for my life as he can kill ANYONE at ANYTIME.  Very scary.
