Not a threat

Redefining “a danger to the community”: Roger Christie is clearly NOT a danger to our community! Dangers to our community include drunk drivers, like the one that killed at least one Hawaii man last Saturday. “In 2009, 33,808 people died in crashes on our nation’s roadways…In 2009, 10,839 people were killed in motor vehicle crashes involving a driver with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or higher–an average of one fatality every 50 minutes.”

“Whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends [i.e., securing inherent and inalienable rights, with powers derived from the consent of the governed], it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.”–Thomas Jefferson: Declaration of Independence, 1776.

Aloha Ahonui! Roger will persevere!
