GENERAL DELIVERY

 
HONOLULU, HAWAII 96820

 
 

 
Chronology:


May 16, 2018: An email I sent to the National Republican Congressional

Committee., along with a reply from them with this same info,  

found under keyword search (nrcc ), only shows  1 result  -

the most current. Before I left the library this afternoon,

there were 2.


Mar 15, 2018: RE-report # 18-101410; "ASSAULT 3RD"

"LIEUT. blank will assign the investigation to a detective who can be reached at blank.

The initial OFF. who submitted the REport is C. SANO and is assigned to the MAIN police station, telephone number blank. Those blanks are as seen on the card.


Mar 4, 2016: My coat containing (evidence) - a roll of film; thumb drive;

a cassette tape designated HPD; POLICE COMMISSION; HOMESTREET &

CPB, is stolen at the HAWAII STATE LIBRARY. This is the seventh time

evidence or evidence contained in items is stolen - the third time at the

same library, in addition to various email accounts(evidence).


Jul, 2015: My blog (CPB & VERNON BALMER JR.) is taken down without

a "review" and no response to my inquiry. It was up for 7 years.

 
 
2012: The same account shows a login on the coming Sunday.

 
 
Apr. 2011: An account of mine shows me logging in on Sunday.

 
It couldn't have been me. The IP address is that of the Hawaii State

 
Public Library System, or state computers.

 
 

 
Jan. 14, 2011: Librarian, Michelle, says I must relinquish my place at

 
the computer to a man that came in after my card was reset and I was at

 
the computer. Ms. Diane Eddy the director gets within inches of my face

 
while at the station and repeatedly demands and requests me to give up

 
the session, and Ray, Star Security Guard, calls the sheriffs to have me

 
removed from the library, after Ms. Eddy says I am causing a

 
disturbance. Ms. Eddy uses the term "as a courtesy to me" when

 
repeatedly demanding and requesting that I relinquish the seat.

 
 

 
Aug. 7, 2010: My MP3 player(evidence) is stolen at the library. Officer Roden

 
makes it 'Lost Property'.

 
 

 
July 21, 2010: A bag containing police(evidence) reports made by me are stolen at

 
the library.

 
 

 
June28, 2010: My bag(evidence) stolen at the Ala Wai.

 
 

 
July 16, 2009: My tax transcripts(evidence) are stolen at the State Library.

 
 

 
These included a set that was sent to me unsealed. There are

 
discrepancies in my name, address, wages reported, and withholding.

 
 

 
Jun. 24 - Today, I go to the police station and inquire about these two

 
reports (199784 152479). I find that there is no statement filed for

 
either. One is for the bag, which did not contain the two recorders(evidence)




and two tapes(evidence) when I claimed it. I also find Off. Lee left of one recorder



and the tapes from his report. Also, the report number now jibes with


the number in evidence, as it did not when I claimed the bag.
 
 

 
May, 2010 - I updated my registration to vote in the 2008 election

 
because I had left my last address, although living in the same area and

 
having the same polling place - McCully. I voted in the last national

 
election at McCully.

 
 

 
I went to the office in City Hall to update again, this past Wednesday,

 
for the special election coming up. I was told that I hadn't done any

 
action since 2006.

 
 

 
Apr. 2010 - I called an officer to report what I believe was a theft.

 
The officer told me that since I did not purchase the item and there

 
would be difficulty in obtaining fingerprints, he could not make it a

 
theft, but instead, MISC PUB.

 
 

 
When I went to the Police Commission, I was told any investigation would

 
be hampered by the inability to collect possible fingerprints.

 
 

 
Apr. 14, 2009 - The IRS tells me there is a 1099 in my name for 2007. I

 
never applied for social security, never received a check from social

 
security, or cashed a check from social security. The SSA tells me there

 
is no record of a 1099 in my name.

 
 

 
Mar. 19, 2009 - Emails(evidence) I had in my AOL account have vanished. The

 
emails were between Ms. Mason and me when President Obama was Senator of

 
Illinois. Who would want them gone?

 
 

 
Seems anyone can come to the Hawaii State Library at any time and do

 
anything they want with, on, and at the public computers.

 
 

 
Aug. 18, 2008 - I go to the police station to get a copy of the report

 
made to Officer Porter. The statement is still not with the rest of the

 
paper work. My statement contained more detailed information about what

 
was inside, including my passport and birth certificate, and numerous

 
correspondences with government agencies.

 
 

 
Jul. 27, 2008 - I return to the police station to make another report

 
and statement, this time with Officer Porter.

 
 

 
Jul. 21, 2008 - I returned to the police station downtown to complete

 
the report with Ms. Aksionczyk, at 5:40 in the morning on Monday and was

 
told by the officer on duty at the receiving area that she would be in

 
at 6:00... I waited until 6:00 and inquired with a different officer,

 
and was told that she would not be at the receiving area until 10:30 -

 
2:30. I tried again during these hours, without success.

 
 

 
This has been 5 days now and no report has been generated and I cannot

 
get a number to reference concerning the case. I need to know how to get

 
the report filed and a number to reference with further correspondence.

 
 

 
Jul. 19, 2008 - I made a report to an officer by the name of Lisa

 
Aksionczyk, on Saturday of this month, about a stolen backpack(evidence) I left on the route E bus. Ms. Aksionczyk suggested at the time, that I inquire at

 
the lost and found department of The Bus. I thought this was a good

 
idea, so that a Good Samaritan would not have the unpleasant experience

 
of someone thinking they were a thief.

 
 

 
I went to the nearest stop I knew the bus would stop at on its return

 
trip. I saw the driver, recognized as the one I rode with and waited for

 
him to stop. I asked if it was turned in. I was told no by the driver. I

 
asked the driver's name. He told me Raymond.

 
 

 
I asked where the bus terminated and Raymond told me Waipahu. I

 
subsequently found the bus terminates in Ewa.

 
 

 
RAYMOND LIED.

 
 

 
The only time I could check with The Bus lost and found would be the

 
following Monday, it is not open on weekends. I did call The Bus, on

 
Saturday, with an emergency report because there was important ID in the

 
backpack.

 
 

 
I was told by the representative that no backpack was turned in. On

 
Monday I went to the transit center to inquire in person, and was

 
disappointed to be shown backpacks that were not mine.

 
 

 
Jan. 2008 - Unlike the DCCA of Hawaii, who I supplied documentation to,

 
the Department of Health and Human Services "Region 10", without

 
documentation, finds that Dr. Au did violate the privacy act by charging

 
me too much for copies of my records. But, Region 10 tells me they

 
cannot precede on the 6 other allegations

 
 

 
1. Along with saying I did not see as well with the new glasses, I said

 
that the prescription that I was given was weaker than the one I had the

 
previous 7, count them, seven years. Your office, nor the DCCA,

 
responded to this charge.

 
 

 
2. The reason I asked Dr. Au to change the prescription was because the

 
NEW one, I repeat, was weaker in one eye. This was the only alternative

 
Dr. Au gave me other than accepting the weaker prescription.

 
 

 
3. The "Vision Certificate" Dr. Au provides, had no license number where

 
it should have been and she did not sign it where it should have been

 
signed.

 
 

 
4. Dr. Au refused to give me photocopies of my records and did not give

 
me a reason, per her offices policy, when I asked for them in her

 
office.

 
 

 
5. Dr. Au charged me 2.00 dollars per page, totaling 20.00 dollars,

 
which I believe is exorbitant.

 
 

 
6. There are conflicting numbers on my records that I would like

 
explained. This, no one has addressed. And I doubt that my records were

 
reviewed by an impartial optometrist, as any reasonable person would

 
assume to be a part on what your office calls an investigation.

 
 

 
7. I was trespassed from Dr. Au's office for no other reason than asking

 
for copies of my files, and in her response to the DCCA she says I was

 
escorted out of her offices by mall security, which is a lie by an

 
optometrist that practices deceit.

 
 

 
Nov. 2007 - My complaint about Central Pacific Bank is not sent to the

 
FDIC regional offices in California. Instead it is sent to Kansas City.

 
Missouri. The response I get from FDIC says my concerns are contractual,

 
although I point out two misrepresentations by the bank's compliance

 
counsel, Judith A. Villarreal.

 
 

 
Ms. Villarreal says I did not contact Mr. Clint Arnoldus, Mr. Dennis K.

 
Isono. I have Certified Receipts and electronic verification from USPS

 
that says I did.

 
 

 
Coincidentally, there are officials at the Kansas City offices with the

 
name Villarreal: Jesse O. Villarreal Jr., Lisa M. Villarreal and Victor

 
Villarreal.

 
 

 
It is my opinion, that a person trained as a lawyer would verify facts

 
before submitting them in official documentation. Therefore, I can only

 
assume that Ms. Villarreal had a serious lapse in judgment, or she was

 
lied to by those she spoke with.

 
 

 
Mar. 2007 - My complaint to the Dept. Of Ed is refused on the grounds

 
that they do not fund any programs or activities at the Hawaii State

 
Public Library System, and therefore do not have jurisdiction.

 
I subsequently find they do.
 

 
If the situation is threatening enough to cause a change in levels

 
moment to moment, it stands to my reason, it would remain at a certain

 
level until there is a sufficient enough change or stabilization to

 
bring it to a lesser level. But that's just me.

 
 

 
Oct. 17, 2006 - I submit a complaint to the Police Commission relaying

 
concerns about the treatment I experienced at the security checkpoint at

 
HPD District 1 the previous day. An investigator tells me it is the

 
policeman’s job to "interpret the law".

 
 

 
Returning to the station to locate an article I left, I am told by

 
Officer Kahele, in the presence of one officer Hung, and another, that

 
it is mandatory that I produce ID, and that I remove everything from my

 
pockets, and take off my belt before passing through the metal detector.

 
 

 
I point out this information is not on the signs, and officer Kahele

 
says there will be no furthering of my purpose if I do not comply. After

 
complying, I am told by officer Kahele that I must sit down, or she will

 
not take my report. Previous to this occasion, when at the HPD

 
headquarters, I was never asked to remove everything from my pockets

 
and, or to remove my belt, or that I had to produce ID to enter. Officer

 
Lau, the sergeant for this post, tells me the same.

 
 

 
I am told by a detective that it is not mandatory to produce ID, "We

 
don't care who you are. Anyone has the right to come in here". Sergeant

 
Lau, who I am told is the officer in charge of the post, says depending

 
on the threat level, procedures may change day to day.

 
 

 
He says one may be required to remove everything from ones pockets etc.,

 
or be required to submit to different procedures. I inform him that on

 
the same day, when I was there previously, I was not required to do so.

 
He informs me that the security level may change from moment to moment.

 
 

 
Oct. 16, 2006 - I submit a complaint to HPD Internal Affairs relaying

 
concerns about not being asked to identify the driver of the vehicle

 
that hit me on the 8th of Sept., and the fact that the person who stood

 
as Chris Pa at the arraignment was not the driver of the car.

 
 

 
Oct. 6, 2006 - I go to the arraignment of A Mr. Chris Pa. I am surprised

 
to see that this Mr. Pa is not the driver I saw, while laying on the

 
hood of the car and peering through the windshield, and definitely not

 
the man I looked in the face and spoke to through an opened window.

 
 

 
This may be due to the fact that I was not asked to identify the person

 
located, arrested, or cited, on the night of the incident or at any

 
subsequent time, until I see him at the arraignment. I am directed by

 
the presiding judge to inform the prosecutor’s office, which I do.

 
 

 
Oct. 2, 2006 - I am told at traffic court there is no court date set,

 
but have found online there is one on Oct. 6, in room 4B, and I am not

 
included as the victim. I still get correspondence from the insurer's

 
agents telling me of medical coverage available, although I told the

 
driver, the responding officer, and previously the insurer's agent, I am

 
OK.

 
 

 
Sep. 21, 2006 - I go to City Hall to get a voters registration card and

 
am told it will cost .50 cents.

 
 

 
I am surprised to get a "Certificate", ala Lens Crafters, and ask is

 
this it? I am told yes by the clerk. Today, on "The Bus" I see a man who

 
says he works at the polls, who tells me there is still a little yellow

 
card that comes in the mail and is surprised to see the "Certificate".

 
 

 
Sep. 8, 2006 - I am hit by a car bearing license plate JST 203, that was

 
stopped at a crosswalk. The driver is looking at me when he accelerates.

 
The driver doesn't wait for police to arrive. They find him at his home.

 
The police report reads Crime Code 550, which I am told means, a

 
collision with damage of more than 3000 dollars. I am told the

 
responding police officer decides if there will be an investigation.

 
This is More, Honolulu HOKUM.

 
 

 
This is the place where, those who would complain about wrongdoing are

 
persecuted, harassed, smeared and railroaded. Where the perpetrators are

 
bribed to keep quiet, or go along with the cover-up, promoted, and

 
transferred.

 
 

 
Sep. 7, 2006 - A security guard, Solomon Save a, badge number - 90187,

 
at the Hawaii State Library, calls me a "ni - - er" twice" in the

 
library foyer, in a loud voice.

 
 

 
Aug. 10, 2006 - I have been told by Sen. Barack Obama's office, where I

 
sent this same correspondence, that someone from Sen. Akaka's office

 
would contact me, because Sen. Obama's office forwarded the

 
correspondence to them. I have yet to hear from Sen. Akaka's office. Is

 
there some assistance your office can give me?

 
 

 
Jul. 2006 - I have written to the Clint Arnoldus Denis Isono and Susan

 
Tachino asking them to explain, and have received no response.

 
 

 
 

 
Letter Sent To Senator Obama

 
 

 
From: y____y@aol.com

 
To: Obama_Casework@obama.senate.go v

 
Sent: Wed, Jun 6 4:46 PM

 
Subject: Ms. Mason

 
Thank you for the assistance you have given. Please, do not contact

 
Senator Akaka’s office again, on my behalf. Unless there is some

 
necessary secrecy to an investigation he is doing, all I have received

 
from his offices is a letter in response to my inquiring about funds for

 
the Hawaii State Library. My concerns extend much further than this.

 
Hopefully, the light being shed on activities in the Justice Department

 
will lend itself to some justice for me. Otherwise, it will be nothing

 
but justice delayed and denied.

 
 

 
Jul. 23, 2006 - An Optometrist, Kim Agena at a Lens Crafters gives me a

 
prescription that is weaker than the one I had for the previous 7 years.

 
 

 
Doctor Au, a co-owner corrects this, but when I ask for photocopies of

 
my records the doctor refuses and gives me a hand written “Vision

 
Certificate" instead, that is not signed and does not contain a license

 
number where applicable. I have made a formal request in writing. They

 
have told me it will be at a cost of 20 dollars for 10 pages, which

 
seems exorbitant and requested that I not seek services at any

 
Optometrists in Lens Crafters.

 
 

 
The doctor, Au, is the co - owner along with Dr. Lau, of all the

 
Optometrist offices in Lens Crafters, in Honolulu. In other words, I

 
cannot get an eye exam at Lens Crafters. Is it considered rude or

 
threatening, to ask for one's records?

 
 

 
The advice I get here is nothing but a pack of lies.

 
 

 
The local ACLU has written me 3 differing and separate excuses why they

 
cannot or will not get involved, but never the conflict I found below.

 
 

 
Apr. 2006 - I have had two librarians and a circulation clerk tell me

 
there is no report possible for stolen books. They must be lost. This

 
would have caused fees to be incurred by me. I had to take the police

 
report to the State Librarian's Office to settle the matter and have the

 
fines removed from my account. This all could have been done at the

 
State Library.

 
 

 
Jan. 2006 - I have had two bank accounts affected. One because a deposit

 
I made to cover my use of overdraft protection was not credited; they

 
rescinded the "overdraft" and CLOSED my account.

 
 

 
The bank says it had to be held in the account for a day, to be

 
credited. Nowhere in the terms and conditions is this stated. The

 
depletion of the other account, I have been given no reason for.

 
 

 
Recently, I have made another complaint, in addition to the previous

 
five, to the USPS - OIG, about mail I am to receive or have sent. I sent

 
a certified letter to Richard E. Fairfax, Directorate of Enforcement

 
Programs - OSHA, in Washington D.C., on the 2nd of December.

 
 

 
The certification number is 7005 2570 0000 6898 2586. I look at the

 
track and confirm feature at USPS.COM and there is no record of it

 
having been delivered yet.

 
 

 
My case was dismissed May 24, 2006. How often does this occur? A case is

 
dismissed with two days difference between the dismissal date and the

 
termination date, (May 26, 2004) of the individual filing suit. I will

 
never understand how the three judges that made decisions in this case

 
could not see that it is too complex for anyone who would consider

 
themselves a pro se litigant, which I do not.

 
 

 
This has been an uphill battle against an opponent whose underwriters

 
include a Fortune 500 company, FNF.

My Information:

 
 

 
I have resided here in Honolulu, Hawaii for almost 4 years now. I had

 
intended to stay here when I made the decision to come, and was happy to

 
have found employment relatively soon. I found a job working with a

 
temporary agency for 4 months. I was hired by the client as a regular

 
employee, Sept... 2002. On my first day of regular hire, I was shocked

 
to hear, "you know why they hired him, don't you", from one of my

 
co-workers. But, needing to work for a living and being in a strange

 
place, I thought it best to ignore this, after all, I was hired.

 
 

 
At the beginning of my time with the client, Title Guaranty, I was told

 
by the onsite supervisor, that if I was to take a particular bus and

 
call her first, "there would be more work". The day after this I handed

 
her my time card, ready to seek another assignment, when she acted as

 
though she didn't know why I would be doing this.

 
 

 
When I explained, she countered with some nebulous words and said I

 
could work as long as the company needed me.

 
 

 
Subsequently, the same supervisor would tell me that I had to give her a

 
key or the combination to the lock on my locker, "in case of an

 
emergency". I thought this to be a strange request, as I could not

 
imagine an emergency in my locker that would require her or anyone else

 
to open it without me. I didn't respond to her request, and not hearing

 
anything further, I gathered that it was not company policy at all.

 
 

 
Having a co-worker refer to me as "boy" and another ask me 3 times -

 
after giving an answer twice - "why do black people use the N word?",

 
did not make me feel very gregarious among them. I was also told by a

 
co-worker, "all Hawaii is a gang brah", and by another, "it's all

 
connected", the supervisor speaking about a former supervisor said, "we

 
made him quit because he thought he was smarter than us, cause he was

 
from the east coast".

 
 

 
We were housed in a basement of what is now a former Costco building,

 
with an air-conditioner as the only ventilation.

 
 

 
When I noticed mold growing in a hole, in the wall beneath the

 
air-conditioner, adjacent to the room where I sometimes, but mostly my

 
co-workers would eat lunch, I asked them about it and was told that

 
management was made aware of it and did nothing. I decided to inform

 
management myself, considering the untruths I had previously heard from

 
some. I was thanked by the assistant to the woman in accounting who

 
handled the repairs for the building.

 
 

 
I did not think it was a major undertaking by a very successful company

 
to fix this problem, and was surprised at the length of time it was

 
taking to address the situation, so I informed OSHA, Aug. 2003. This is

 
when things started to go further south.

 
 

 
Coincidentally, the day after going to the OSHA offices, the next day at

 
work, my supervisor stated to a co-worker, "Vernon went to OSHA." This

 
information was not given to her or any co-worker, by me.

 
 

 
When I went to OSHA, the employee did not give me any type of reference

 
number, or write one in the space provided on the complaint form, nor

 
did she inform me at that time that mold is not OSHA'S jurisdiction,

 
which is what I was told when I went to check on the status of the

 
complaint. Neither, did the employee inform me of laws governing

 
discrimination.

 
 

 
I was also told - it not being OSHA'S jurisdiction - the complaint was

 
referred to the Department of Health. It was like pulling teeth to get

 
an answer as to what office at the DOH it was referred to. Needless to

 
say I could not inquire about the possible disposition of the complaint,

 
not knowing where to inquire.

 
 

 
I made a complaint to the EEOC, Jan. 2004, and the Hawaii Civil Rights

 
Commission, Apr 2004, both of which were dismissed without any

 
investigation. Each agency sat back and waited for the submission of the

 
company's response, giving them numerous extensions. Incidentally, I was

 
contacted by the director of the EEOC, asking me if I wanted to proceed,

 
after I was shown a copy of the company's response, which I don't

 
believe is proper.

 
 

 
I now see in the EEOC's and the HCRC's own publications, matters such as

 
mine that were investigated and even adjudicated. During the HCRC's lack

 
of investigation, I only heard from them at the intake and when I

 
received their letter of dismissal.

 
 

 
I now find the investigator did business with my former employer. I

 
furnished the EEOC and the HCRC with names of co-workers who said they

 
would speak for me. They were not interviewed. I was informed by an

 
investigator at the EEOC that no one visited the site.

 
 

 
There was a similar situation here with UPS, where an employee was fired

 
for doing less egregious acts than his co-workers, which I believe is

 
the case here. I saw co-workers break company equipment, cuss freely,

 
ask for sexual favors, and bring children and friends to the work site.

 
 

 
Throughout this experience I have been told by these agencies' staff and

 
lawyers, literally or in effect, "there is no smoking gun here". This is

 
only due to there being no investigation. In the least, there is a

 
pattern that should compel any thinking person to ask questions.

 
 

 
Subsequent to this, my work was sabotaged on more than one occasion, and

 
reports to management only resulted in them twisting the situation in

 
attempts to placate me and set me up for these spurious accusations by

 
my co-workers.

 
 

 
Each complaint of mine was a matter of my erroneous "interpretation", as

 
stated by management (Myron Koizumi), while my co-workers complaints

 
were valid descriptions of my "misconduct".

 
 

 
As a result of the accusations, I was suspended, without pay, pending an

 
investigation for, I kid you not, a co-worker accusing me of harassing

 
her by clapping my hands and signing "Pink Cadillac", and another

 
saying, I was teasing her when I asked her to say my name and that of

 
the manager, to see if I could distinguish the two.

 
 

 
I was terminated in May 2004, two weeks after the dismissal of the EEOC

 
complaint that was not investigated, and a day after informing

 
management that I overheard a co-worker saying to the one that accused

 
me of harassing her by singing, "we're going to show him the power of pu

 
- - y.

 
 

 
I was denied unemployment insurance, June 2004, with a fact-finding

 
interview done over the telephone that was not reviewed or signed by me,

 
as it should have been before it was made part of the official record

 
and used at my future appeal.

 
 

 
The subsequent appeal Aug. 2004 was biased, prejudiced, and contained

 
perjured statements by the witnesses for my former employer. I am now

 
told that the recording of the hearing does not exist because it was

 
transcribed.

 
 

 
I have initiated a suit in federal court, Jan.. 2005 that I cannot

 
pursue, due to the lack of time and funds necessary for an undertaking

 
such as this, and the skill I do not have in these matters.

 
 

 
I have all but given up searching for representation, believing word has

 
gotten to many legal ears on the island and no one wants to go against

 
the state that has all but coddled and cuddled business here.

 
 

 
I have contacted the ACLU, and given them much information, but they

 
seem more interested in writing briefs for exotic entertainers, arrested

 
for doing lap dances. First they tell me they cannot help unless the

 
matter involves a government agency, then they tell me they can if a

 
decision is against me, then they tell me they do not have the manpower

 
and time. Each of the criteria, I met at the time I contacted them.

 
 

 
Coincidentally, I find a lawyer, Roger Fonseca, at the firm representing

 
my former employer, is the national representative for the Hawaii

 
chapter of the ACLU. And their staff also has names that are the same as

 
those associated with Hawaii real estate. They cannot help, but they can

 
accept my information.

 
 

 
I have tried to interest many, many lawyers and firms by email, letters

 
and personal visits, to no avail. I have had a lawyer in San Francisco

 
who participated in a well-known case here try to find someone without

 
success.

 
 

 
This situation has been surrounded by complicity, cronyism, and bias.

 
 

 
I have written to the DOJ, only to have my information shuffled from one

 
agency to another, including the Department of the Interior, of all

 
places, and finally coming full circle to the Hawaii Department of

 
Labor. I do not think this was coincidence. At the HCRC, there is a

 
commission chair, I have found, married to one my former employer's -

 
one Coral Wong Pietsch.

 
 

 
Mrs. Pietsch is a general in the U.S. Army Reserve, and an attorney, a

 
very powerful position with ties to D.C., I'm sure. It has long been my

 
suspicion that this may have played a role in the lack of effort on the

 
part of officials that has attended this matter. Each party's history I

 
research has some relation to another, be it professional, academic, and

 
even familial.

 
 

 
I now look at web sites for all the organizations I sought help at - the

 
Governor and Lieutenant Governor, all representative's and senator's

 
offices, Legal Aid Society, Hawaii Dept. of Labor and the DOL -

 
national, EEOC - Hawaii, district, and national offices, NAACP Hawaii, ,

 
ACLU of Hawaii, Hawaii - Department of Health, HIOSH and OSHA ( regional

 
and national ), the Hawaii Office of Information Practices, the

 
ombudsman's office and Volunteer Legal Services of Hawaii.

 
 

 
Concerning Volunteer Legal Services of Hawaii, I have recently

 
discovered that one of two lawyers they referred is an attorney at the

 
law firm representing my former employer, and the other is a realtor in

 
Honolulu, and also licensed to practice in California. And another is

 
the member of a firm with old ties to the Pietsch family. Who were these

 
lawyers going to "help"?

 
 

 
At the Hawaii Civil Rights Commission, and Hawaii Ethics Commission, I

 
find the persons responding to my letter, did business with my former

 
employers and my letter explaining the situation and their reply

 
stating they could do nothing, are the only correspondence I had during

 
their "investigations" or dismissals.

 
 

 
I have sought assistance at the Hawaii State Bar Association, where the

 
lawyers who are members of the Real Property and Financial Services

 
Section, are also affiliated with these other organizations, or directly

 
associated with my former employer, or the firm that represents them -

 
Torkildson, Katz, Fonseca, Heatherington, and Moore.

 
 

 
The Real Property and Financial Services Section includes a lawyer I was

 
assisted by, one Andre Wooten, who at the time told me nothing of his

 
involvement with this organization.

 
 

 
He was suggested to me by church members and NAACP officer, Alfonso

 
Braggs. I pull up the staff or the particular board of directors of

 
these organizations and there are last names that are the same and have

 
some relationship, mostly with real estate, and more than a few with

 
ties to California.

 
 

 
Two names in particular are quite suspicious. Kouchi is at Volunteer

 
Legal Services. It was also the last name of the HR assistant at Title

 
Guaranty. Pang, is the name of a front desk worker at the YMCA, whom I

 
complained about signing for my mail. It is also that of an Appeals

 
Officer at Department of Labor - Security Appeals Referees Office.

 
Hirayama is the name of the appeal's referee and also that of the owner

 
of the restaurant at the YMCA.

 
 

 
I mention the YMCA because in 2002, I had complained about what I

 
believed to be prostitution, facilitated by staff there. And when I

 
informed the supervisor at Title Guaranty, her response was to leave

 
well enough alone, after I informed her that I had, in my opinion,

 
angered some people there.

 
 

 
My subsequent report to the police department was investigated by the

 
police calling the YMCA and asking them if my suspicions were true. I

 
think you can see what position this left me in. In my lay opinion, this

 
was a sloppy and dangerous way to initiate and conclude an

 
investigation.

 
 

 
There are too many relationships here to be mere coincidence, and are

 
questionable, at least.

 
 

 
My information was passed by one Elaine Chao - Department Of Labor, in

 
D.C. to Tin Shing Chao Department of Labor here in Hawaii, who used an

 
erroneous date to nullify my complaint. This was after a layover in

 
California with Ms. Alison Pauly at the regional offices, whose CASPA

 
investigation stated that I should have made this a written complaint,

 
when Hawaii law states it does not matter, whether written or verbal.

 
Could she be related to the Paulys who have donated to the University of

 
Hawaii, and have owned land here?

 
 

 
The complex in Hawaii that houses the Department of Labor is also where

 
the HIOSH offices and the Hawaii Civil Rights Commission offices are

 
located. This name, Pang, pops up in various places dealing with state

 
government and real estate. I now know these agencies to be straw dogs

 
that do everything but contend with the status quo.

 
 

 
For the most part, the agencies that pretend to help, most notably the

 
NAACP and ACLU, only collect information and then say they can do

 
nothing; I wonder what happens to the information in a state that treats

 
confidential information as a commodity. Incidentally my former

 
employer's representation is one of the largest contributors to Legal

 
Aid Society.

 
 

 
I have applied for many positions since my termination, and have only

 
worked sporadically in spite of my efforts. I have registered with many

 
staffing agencies - Olympia, Hawaii Staffing, Snelling, and Hawaii Temp,

 
CTA Staffing which is now Bishop & Company, Manpower, Kelly, and POI. I

 
have not worked a complete week and have not been contacted at all by

 
some. I registered at Altres in 2004, and was not called in a year’s

 
time before I returned. There, I was terminated for, “not being

 
proactive".

 
 

 
There is no confidentiality law here, and I believe this also has worked

 
against me. It - confidentiality - has been frequently cited by my

 
former employer's agents and state officials, only to protect their self

 
and facilitate their deceptive practices.

 
 

 
I mostly use the public library to use the Internet, i.e. write letters

 
and do research. Needless to say, this is not the most secure

 
environment to do this type of activity. And I have had problems at this

 
library with the computers and the staff.

 
 

 
At the library, I have seen the text change when I am typing, without

 
commands initiated by me. The printer is connected to the computer at

 
the librarians' desk. On one occasion, I was told by a security guard

 
that a librarian had complained about me harassing her because I asked

 
for her name to report her behavior.

 
 

 
After contacting the librarian's office, there is no record or

 
remembrance of this aspect of the report. This tactic of "bait and

 
switch" has been used on more than one occasion, by different entities.

 
 

 
After not being online for 3 days I saw where someone had requested an

 
Army Knowledge Online account in my name, or I should say my screen

 
name. I saw an attorney - John L. Knorek - from the firm representing my

 
former employer enter the philosophy department and ask for a librarian,

 
Kathy, by name.

 
 

 
Yee is the name of the head librarian at the State Library and the name

 
of a former employee of the United States Attorney's Office and HCRC,

 
did training for the Department of Justice, and worked for the

 
Massachusetts Attorney General. I sent most of this same information to

 
Sen. Ted Kennedy's offices in Massachusetts and was told during a

 
telephone conversation with the office that, being on the Judiciary

 
Committee, Sen. Kennedy could not get involved in judicial matters.

 
 

 
Since this is the only avenue I have been given, I have asked the

 
district offices of the DOL to investigate by CASPA, Sept. 2005, and

 
have asked for an investigation for discrimination due to the whistle

 
blower aspect of the matter.

 
 

 
I believe this will be my only chance at a modicum of justice. But I

 
will always believe that more realistically this situation can be

 
defined by, 18 USC 241, 242 and 245.

 
 

 
Hawaii, I now entertain, is a state where the dollar is God, and workers

 
are only by a necessary evil to facilitate that gain.

 
 

 
The Director of Labor and Industrial Relations, Nelson Befitel, has

 
unashamedly professed his desire, and that of the state to relieve the

 
department of any obligation to penalize businesses for infractions and,

 
I can see where the natural sequence would be to alleviate any scrutiny

 
that would expose abuse of power by the states employees.

 
 

 
It is no wonder; I have experienced what I have. All too often, in the

 
news here, the term "outsider" is given to any entity that would look at

 
what is practiced here. But there is a GOD that sees all and will affect

 
justice for the oppressed.

Washington, D.C. 20210

 
 

 
Dear Sir,

 
 

 
For the past two years at every step in this long railroad, from my

 
initial complaint filed at the EEOC, and subsequent to that, the HCRC;

 
the United States Commission on Civil Rights; the Department of Justice;

 
and finally through no effort of my own, having it wind up at the

 
Regional OSHA offices in San Francisco, I have steadily maintained that

 
I submitted a written complaint at the state HIOSH offices, here in

 
Honolulu.

 
 

 
I was told that much of what I sent to the DOJ had been sent to the San

 
Francisco OSHA offices. Evidently this written HIOSH complaint was not

 
among the papers.

 
 

 
Imagine my surprise when I got this letter from Mr. Traenkner, informing

 
me that I should not have made this a verbal complaint. I retrieved the

 
copy of the written complaint, made for me while at the HIOSH offices,

 
just to convince myself that those in power are the ones mistaken, and

 
now I believe with my whole being, they are in actuality, deceitful and

 
dishonest, practiced at covering up embarrassing incidents, and

 
downright criminal.

 
 

 
I am making a request to you for a review by your national offices,

 
where hopefully someone unbiased, with integrity, will do the right

 
thing. There was a Ms. Hirai in San Francisco that said she could see

 
the discrimination in this matter. Too bad it was not she that conducted

 
the investigation.

 
 

 
I only hope it is coincidence that there is a Hirai here in Honolulu

 
that is a lawyer and involved in the real estate business, and a lawyer

 
formerly in the firm representing my former employer.

 
 

 
Throughout this situation there have been relationships, I have noticed

 
in my opposition, which include professional, academic and familial. It

 
has long been my suspicion that those ensconced in the cronyism here in

 
Hawaii have at each step facilitated the lack of effort in this matter.

 
I am now sure of what I have long suspected. This cover-up goes much

 
further than what happens here in Hawaii.

 
 

 
Sincerely,

 
Vernon Balmer Jr.
