Today, Saturday, June 28, 2014, from 9:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. the Department of the Honolulu Prosecuting Attorney had a training on digital evidence at the University of Hawaii William S. Richardson School of Law for its attorneys and investigators, as well as some law enforcement guests. We had a really good U.S. mainland speaker on the topic, a former prosecutor who is now with a digital evidence company. Through technology, we can find the whereabouts, communication, and thoughts of humans. However, U.S. and Hawaii privacy laws are strict and can personally penalize law enforcement individuals for discovery that isn’t narrowly focused to the truth of the matter in the case among other issues. The laws send a clear message that government must be very careful and responsible with their access to digital information.

I’m proud of the United States World Cup team for advancing to the final 16 teams. We got a 0-1 loss to Germany, but the team still had a good performance and enough points to get out of the bracket known as the “group of death” because of the top class teams in it: Germany (ranked #2 in the world), Portugal (ranked #4 in the world), Ghana (ranked #37 in the world and have eliminated the U.S. in the 2006 World Cup 2-1 in the group stage and in the 2010 World Cup after over time 2-1 in the round of 16), and the United States (ranked #13 in the world). I hope we do well against Belgium next Tuesday, July 1, 2014.
As of 6/27/2014, I have 547 convictions (528 convictions from pleas and 19 convictions from trials).
I got 13 convictions from plea agreements for 6 Honolulu District Court criminal misdemeanor calendars on 6/24/14, 6/25/14, 6/26/14, & 6/27/14.
I attended the medical marijuana dispensaries task force meeting today, Tuesday, June 24, 2014 from 9 AM to 11 AM at the Hawaii State Capitol.
Great playing by the United States against Portugal in the 2-2 tie. We were so close to winning. If only the game ended 30 seconds earlier. Now onwards against Germany on Thursday. We have a good chance to advance.
U.S.A. vs. Portugal. Go United States!
