KHNL: Nearly 95 percent of personal items taken during Honolulu homeless sweeps end up destroyed
Honolulu mayor and city council have been hating the homeless since 2013:

KHNL: Honolulu auditor criticizes city’s homelessness initiatives
Of course our mayor and city council are mismanaging the ‘house the homeless’ programs. They don’t want to “house” the homeless. They want to punish the homeless for being homeless, victims of the city’s response to developers of housing for rich people is always: “Yes, sir, build it wherever and how tall you like.”

I shall continue to vote no incumbents for mayor or city council.
