Well the legislative aides to former councilwoman Emily Naeole, RJ Hampton and Sativa
Jones Sultan, sure caused a problem with President Obama’s Secret Service detail today!
“…OK, you know it Obama we’re OK with you, you OK with us,” Hampton said on the tape, provided to KITV. “We just wanted to get a glimpse of you but we’re moving on because this is a private street and we don’t want to make anybody nervous. Aloha!” She waved to the Secret Service agents at the barricade as she climbed back into the car…
Sativa then allegedly had her finger damaged by the door KITV Reports:
“…He grabbed it out of my hand and then he slammed it on top of the car,” Jones said. She said the camera was damaged – the automatic lens cover no longer worked.
Jones’ fingers were gashed by the sharp edge on the camera mount. She said the officer appeared shaken by what he’d done and courteously showed her how to complain, writing his name and badge number on a card with contact information for the Honolulu Police Commission…
So much for Obama being your “Wizard of Oz” RJ!
…Asked if it was legal for police officers to stop someone from videotaping an officer in a public place, the department said citizens are allowed to video in public places.The Secret Service Office in Honolulu did not respond to telephone and e-mail requests for comment.
I don’t want to sound like Hampton and Sativa were causing troubles by the “Headline”… Only wanted to say they, Hampton and Sativa, were giving them (the secret service) grief. Grief at times can be a good thing from a public’s perspective. I just believe there is a time and a place for it.
Hampton and Sativa are two former government workers who I believe should know better then to try and approach the POTUS in this manner.
To be quite frank… why would these two from Puna on a complete different island here in Hawaii, make an unsolicited attempt to meet with the president?
What group are they representing? I’ve never heard of this “We Are Change Hawaii”… When did this start up? I mean they were just legislative aides until recently?
Trust me… I’ve still got people out there trying to line me up with a chance to at least see the president this weekend… but I’m not about to go driving up to his private residence with camera in tow!
