    Remember State Department Diplomatic Security Special Agent Chris Deedy? He was the State Department law enforcement professional who shot and killed a local Hawaiian man in a Honolulu McDonalds at 3 am a few days ago.

    KITV in Honolulu is now reporting that Special Agent Deedy may have been drunk at the time of the murder.

    According to Attorney Michael Green, who represents the victim’s family so of course let’s all doubt him, the victim was standing in line when Special Agent Deedy walked in with three friends. “What the witnesses say is that at one point, the agent, who apparently appeared very intoxicated, asked my client if he’d like to get shot. And everybody was stunned,” according to Green.

    Deedy kicked Elderts in the chest, causing Elderts to fall to the ground, Green said. “He got up, they grabbed each other and there were three shots fired.” Green said one bullet hit Elderts in the chest, a second bullet hit the ceiling. It isn’t clear where the third bullet landed. “There were lots of people and I’m sure, terrified. Three shots in a crowded fast food place? And I can’t imagine why he’s out at 3 in the morning with a gun, drinking,” Green said.

    While commentators on this blog are quick to remind us some Americans are innocent until proven guilty, Deedy is charged with second-degree murder and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. It’ll be fun to learn where in the Special Agent’s State Department training he learned to hammer off three shots inside a crowded public place when faced with a man without a firearm himself. Don’t Special Agents still have to learn Kung Fu or something?

    And get this– the State Department put shooter Deedy on admin leave for a second degree murder charge, the same status they put me on for writing a book they dislike. Maybe since we’re both at home, Deedy and I can get together for a few brews, talk over State Department stuff. Email me, Chris, ‘kay, but leave the iron at home if we’re gonna hit the bars together brother.

      Several unusual things about this case. First, HPD arrested Deedy at the scene instead of being extended the common courtesy usually given to fellow law enforcement personnel of just being detained. On the other hand, the judge set an unusually low bail (typically recommended by HPD) of $250,000 which Deedy made last week. Second, the victims family lawyered immediately with a prominent local defense attorney, I cannot ever recall him being retained to represent a victim before this. Third, local authorities have been able to keep a very tight lid on any details so far despite a whole slew of witnesses and confirmed reports that the whole incident was captured on surveillance video. Highly unusual for this island community where there is a saying “everybody knows everybody”.

      Agent Christopher Deedy has done what most on Earth would have done if they were in his shoes. One should really think before he picks a fight. Do they really want to die?????
      Most in Law Enforcement no longer want to play games, with anyone. All should really think to make PEACE not WAR. Playing that you are a bad wolf can get you killed.

      Do the Lords work and help other, not try to fight with them.
      There is always someone faster then you out there.
      That day may be your last.

      Whether or not Mr. Deedy was trained in self defense is a moot point. Anyone can be subdued by anyone else. There’s someone out there, unsuspecting that can whoop up on an UFC fighter. If Mr. Deedy was involved in a fight, and was losing, at what point can anyone behind a computer decide that he feared for his life? I surely can’t.

      The man had a firearm and used it.

      Now you through alcohol into the mix, well, he fried himself and there’s nothing you can do. If you carry a firearm you do so while you’re not drunk. It’s that simple.

      But Hawaii, especially on the main island, is notorious for locals trying to mess with “haoles” No one truly knows all the facts so all we are doing (including myself) is speculating.

      I’ll forgo all of the standard criticisms about being flippant concerning a man’s life after another has already lost his and go straight for the “Are you seriously basing ALL of your suppositions on the statements that the victim’s family’s civil litigation lawyer made about the statements that the witnesses made that he purports to have taken before ANY court process, medical exam, investigation, etc., etc., has started?” criticism.

      Do ANY research AT ALL before “reporting”.

      The only facts we know to this day are that Elderts had cocaine and marijuana in his system and that Deedy shot him.
