HAWAII: Police use Excessive Force as Sacred Mountain Defended from Telescope


In the news:
MAKAWAO, MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) -
Some are claiming that Maui officers used excessive force during a protest of the controversial Haleakala telescope project, and are pointing to cell phone video circulating online as evidence of their charges.
Six people were arrested Wednesday morning for disorderly conduct, obstructing a highway, failing to obey a police officer and resisting arrest during the protest, in which participants attempted to block a construction convoy from delivering parts to the summit of Haleakala for construction of the Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope.
