http://www.capitol.hawaii.gov/measure_indiv.aspx?billtype=SB&billnumber=147&year=2015

Why this bill should be supported:

  • 72% of the 325 wrongful convictions were due to mis-identification
  • The October 2014 produced by the National Research Council  validates that the mind is not a videocamera and memory is unreliable
  • It is scientifically sound best practice for police and courts to reform their eyewitness identification procedures
  • The report is the result of 30 years of research and field testing
  • Setting uniform standards statewide for eyewitness identification procedures is important to improve the quality of justice in Hawai`i

*****

We are going to need to push HARD this session. Legislators need to know that voters are sick and tired of the political games. Reduce sentences, build up community programs to facilitate our people serving our people by our people, and  stop playing with people’s lives. We don’t need to build more prison beds; we need to build strong and resilient people and WE CAN DO THIS if we stop wasting our precious resources!

Mahalo for caring about justice for all.
