TESTIMONY NEEDED: Oppose Bill 51 and Bill 52 which criminalize our houseless community. Honolulu City Council’s Public Works, Infrastructure and Sustainability Committee will be hearing the bills next Wednesday, 7/25 at 1pm.
Both bills are awful, but Bill 52 is so broad that it could criminalize anything anyone does on sidewalks or other public property. It would give police officers unbridled discretion to make any activity illegal and then prosecute people for that activity.
