More on the Puna Dude That Wants to Sue Me

Earlier I blogged about Angelo Scrigna wanting to sue me because of a post that I copied from the Hawaii County Website.

The dude kept emailing me throughout the day… so I figured I just let him blow off steam for a day and see where this would take him with his alleged lawsuit he was going to file against me.

…It is not legal to verbally insult people and you have done just that.

if this is how you respond to the public concern then i will most certainly be forced to take legal action against you….

So I tell him to take action against me… and get this:

I have reviewed your new posting of me,
I do not recall making our conversaion public information, howevr you do not have my permission to further lublish my picture or any conversasion between us, I simply asked you to remove me from your website, if this is the course of intimidation then i will be happy to take legal action against you for verbal assult in a criminal proceeding
thank you

So I kept telling him over and over to sue me… then finally he says this:

thank but i got better things to do!
I think you need to learn some manners though being a puna tick it is understandable that you may not have that.
Thanks for letting me know which sites i need to remove it from before you take me off yours.
and yes i would like your lawyers name.

At any rate… he goes on and on and finally I says “I Suck” because I won’t take his picture down.

I tell him… I may suck… but at least I’m not in trouble with the law…

He then goes on to tell me that he’s innocent… and finally I call his bluff on that and do a little criminal check on the buggah….

So I sent him this:

…Lets see:

Are you False Reporting Bombs in Florida?

Or maybe you would like to talk about your mothers estate?

Dude… keep emailing me… and I’ll have you known all over Hawaii for everything you’ve done.


Yes, Mr. Scrigna your criminal record is open to the public.

But I got an even more interesting email that came in from someone who wishes to remain anonymous:

…Check the police records in 1998 in Bernallilo County NM. Check the police records in Miami-Dade County Florida for 2002. He also tried to file a domestic violence suit against the Bank of America in Miami-Dade County last year. Look up the court records in the County of Hawaii and see all the Temporary Restraining Orders listed…

So Mr. Scrigna… Like I said before… Sue me!

Just quit sending me emails.

You know I’m going to publish them… are you looking to sensationalize yourself as the Big Islands biggest idiot?

Please stop emailing me.

Papaya and Car Paint Don’t Mix

So today I was driving in some really weird locations in Puna.

papayas 001

The road was ok when I started out on this road but it became quite an adventure.

There are a lot of houses in Puna that you would never expect to find just by driving old cane roads and papaya field farms.

papayas 002

I don’t know why I even attempted to go down a few of the roads I did today in my poor little car… (That is now being tuned up on Monday!)

papayas 003

I came across a lot of people living in make shift housing and just regular tarps set up as tents.

I came across an “Eco Village” today that was quite interesting… and to try and be as discreet as I can about this little community of people… let’s just say that wearing clothes was not the highest priority on their list.

The one thing that I kept friggin running into… was damn rotten papayas all over the road.  I could feel my tires slipping everytime they would run over one of them buggahs.


papayas 004

If I wanted papaya… I would have grown my own.

Only in Puna

So this is a continuation of my “Only in Puna” posts of pictures that you won’t see anywhere else besides Puna.

Today’s feature is also another car I saw in Pahoa Town:

papayas 006

I’m the type of guy that won’t even put a bumper sticker on my car… so when I see these cars… I am very intrigued.

papayas 007

You can’t really see it that well in this picture, but Tiffany Edwards Hunt’s surf shop has some free advertising on this car.  (Note the black Jeff Hunt Surf Sticker on the window).

I’m still waiting to see some “Blog With Aloha” bumper stickers start to pop up on cars around town.  I have seen them in a few shop windows.  Still waiting for that first car I see to say… “Hey… I recognize that bumper sticker… That’s Tiff’s Blog”

Puna Resident Angelo Scrigna Threatens to Sue Me

I can’t believe some idiots… I tried to warn him to quit emailing me.

Angelo Scrigna

Angelo Scrigna

I just got an email from Angelo Scrigna threatening to sue me for copying the Hawaii County Police departments website report of the notice that he was wanted by the police.

“…this is hurting my name as it shows up on your web site,

this is breach of my civil liberties and deformation of character…”
(Can someone please tell me what “DEFORMATION OF CHARACTER IS”)
I emailed him back explaining that it’s public record and that a few other sites also listed the event:

And so then Scrigna simply states:

“ok so then i will sue you personally or the company
because you are not a public authorised entity to release my personal information”

Well Angelo Scrigna… Go ahead and sue me or the “Company”…

Let’s see… Company Name… Umm… Anyone have any suggestions?

Mr. Scrigna, how about you do something more productive and quit blaming others for all your problems?

Or you can sue the Police department for the site that I posted the information from:
