    Default Chinky Mahoe

    I'm splitting the Chinky Mahoe conversation from the "Have you met someone famous?" thread. Carry on.

    Impressive list, though perhaps Chinky Mahoe should go on an INfamous list.

    Only Chinky and the Gods know the truth. Therefore, I never have, nor will I start now, make comments or judgements about someone without knowing first hand the details on which to make such a judgement. E kala mai.

    Only Chinky, the Gods, and the four young boys he admitted in court that he molested. Oh, and their distraught families and friends. (See http://starbulletin.com/98/05/22/news/story6.html , among many other published news reports.)
    A multi-year series of molestations and a guilty/no contest plea to five felony counts and one misdemeanor count are cold hard "truth" and "details", as is the fact that Chinky Mahoe not only did not apologize to the boys and their parents, he publicly refused to apologize to them.
    I've seen many cases where he was a guest at various performances. There was almost no applause whatsoever when he walked on stage, and many people actually got up and left, including myself.
    Like yourself, Tutulady, I can forgive and forget almost anything. But to let a convicted and acknowledged child molester continue to work with children and continue to represent the Hawaiian culture is nothing less than a travesty. Shame on those who stick their heads in the sand and pretend it never happened.

    Nonsense.
    Go ahead and tell that "island style" baloney to the next kids who get molested.

    Hooray for those who protect our island children from convicted child molesters like Chinky Mahoe!

    Unlike you though, I tend not to take every word that's printed in the newspaper or that is spoken on a news report as law. All I'm saying is that I don't know all the details of that story as I was not in Hawai'i (or the US for that matter) when all that happened (the court hearing, et al. that is). I wouldn't call that sticking my head in the sand. Indeed, as a survivor of child molestation, I would be as angry, if not a right bit more were I able to go beyond news reports and find out FOR MYSELF just what the facts are... for reasons explained previously. I realise that it's hard to garner people's intent while using this type of platform but shame on you for turning something (this thread) perfectly positive and without malice, into something demeaning and mean spirited. But that's ok, I forgive you.

    You're absolutely right. In fact i support your next step; buying a big panel truck and plaster pictures of the incidents and chinky and the web links on the sides and back and drive all over Honolulu in warning.

    Why bother? Folks can warn themselves. Thanks to Megan's Law and some legislative tweaking, the Hawaii Sex Offender Registry is slowly coming back online. With only a handful of names there now, though, it'll take a while to catch up to Chinky...

    His indictment and no contest plea are a matter of public record. True, each of us decides who to believe, how to judge (or not judge at all). But while this is hardly light-and-fluffy cocktail conversation, I don't think it's so awful to examine and debate.

    Is it merely promulgating bad news, a violation of "the island style," to feel strongly about Chinky's case? What about forming opinions about Rene Mansho, or Andy Mirikitani? These are people who put themselves before the public eye... and in Chinky's case, entrusted with the care and guidance of children.

    I'm all for "the island style," but not at the expense of occasionally calling a spade or spade, or acknowledging that darker things exist, even in Hawaii.

    Actually, like Tutulady, I don't feel I know enough to form an opinion, either way. I think it's fine that some people have. Her initial mention was "perfectly positive and without malice," but it definitely sparked some debate. With a separate thread, it can continue.

    >> I wouldn't call that sticking my head in the sand. <<

    Oh, I wasn't aiming that comment specifically at you, TutuLady; it was a general comment to the world at large.

    >> I would be as angry, if not a right bit more were I able to go beyond news reports and find out FOR MYSELF just what the facts are. <<

    That's easy. Go to http://www.courts.state.hi.us/index.jsp and under the Legal References heading click on Search Court Records. Once you enter that site you can enter a search for Howell Mahoe (Chinky's legal name) or search under Case ID number 1PC97-0-001219 and from there you can click on Court Minutes and read the official minutes from each appearance on the case, including the conviction and the sentencing. You can also see the original six charges.
    So now that you can easily find out for yourself, are you angry (as you said you would be, above)?

    Unhappy Re: Chinky Mahoe

    Admin you should move this topic to the forefront. It should be talked about. My friend had a son (12) who wasn't part of the Mahoe court
    proceedings but he and his family have been affected by the incident
    and typically local style, they don'tt discuss and he's not had therapy.
    They kind of treat it like Auntie and TuTu and whoever thinks just because
    you have Kumu infront your name that you have the right to molesting
    children.

    No one wants to hurt another person when they're down but
    incidents like this with Chinky Mahoe and other celebritries
    like nabors, a former modeling agent, so many settled cases
    out of court and continue to... molest minors. Not right any way you
    say it.

    At this point in time it's a very old thread. The message immediately before yours is dated Sept. 2004. Kinda hard to move a topic this old to the forefront. That's not a reflection on how I feel about this topic. But, the thread is old...outdated. Apparently no one felt the need to continue it almost a year and a half ago. If it makes the news again I'd guess this thread will be revived or a new thread started.

    Ummm...just curious. How does the admin. move this topic "to the forefront"? He already split it from the famous people thread and renamed it. What more should he do, in your opinion? And, in the name of 'edumacation' ,<g> HT isn't a blog as you've referred to it in other messages. The HT admin. is the King of Blogs. This isn't one 'em but I've followed his real blogs for years!

    place to confirm good story. Haven't seen anything yet. More like you all know each other long time and get on just to talk story. Where can i go

    It depends what what you like "dish dish" on. Old threads are just that..."OLD". We are an Ohana here at HT. Yes, we have our fights like any community. We have our own opinions on various topics and sometimes threads get really HOT! However, each member is respected for their input as long as they go by the rules and regulations of this Forum. I have been guilty many a times of crossing the line but have wiggled and apologized my tail back in.

    Hence, do a search on the Forum on what you may be interested in. Who knows it may generate interest again. Or start a new thread. Yes, most of the regulars know each other a long time. However, we embrace new members quickly and are quite helpful when asked for assistance.

    I'm with candyglassy. The public has a short memory (we elected Mufi Hanneman, didn't we?), and this man should never be allowed to work with children, and those of us who care should probably remind everyone once in a while.

    I believe in forgiveness and I could forgive Mr. Mahoe if he were to indicate in some way that he were repentant. But let him work with children again? Not just "no," but "hell no."

    Those who are inclined to cut the guy some slack should ask themselves if they'd be just as willing if he were a kindergarten teacher.

    Likely on the advice of his attorney; a public apology is NOT recommended with a "no contest" plea. Nolo contendre is where a defendant agrees to the charges and declines to refute the evidence as presented; it cannot be used as an admission in other proceedings, whereas a public apology can.

    I'm kind of surprised Uncle George Naope allows Chinky to continue to list him as his kumu on his website.

    Uncle George disassociated himself from an annual hula festival in Seattle (bruddah G knows which one) by refusing the festival the use of his name because he didn't like the politics involved with running the festival. That didn't hurt anyone but did deprive hundreds of local expats the opportunity to see 2 days of hula.

    I do indeed; luckily, the one year I participated, I not only had the honor of meeting him (as my kumu's kumu), but even got to see him dance a distinctly after-hours version of "Tewetewe." Unforgettable! (And it most assuredly was NOT performed in front of any children.)

    Was that the year that Uluwehe Guerero was a judge and Alaka'i Paleka was the announcer? That was our first festival too, and it was absolutely fantastic.

    Since this is a thread about a convicted child molester, perhaps it would be a good idea to start a new thread about any festivals or other hula events and dancers, etc?
    Just a thought.

    Ouch. Wasn't me. We did go off-topic (that happens so rarely!) though, sorry. (Oops! We should be discussing this in the old "Reputation" thread, shouldn't we?)

    Anyway, back to Mr. Mahoe. My earlier comment regarding his lack of public apology was not meant to defend or condemn him in any way (I'm not familiar enough with the circumstances), just to note why he may have been unwilling to make such a statement, likely on advice of counsel.
