Hawaii Neighborhood Faces Lockdown for Presidential Vacation

It's a police state created for a politician's amusement


Residents living near the beachfront homes where President Barack Obama and first family vacation with their friends every year since 2008 were alerted on Monday to some specifics of the Obamas' upcoming holiday vacation plans.

The report delivered to residents living along the ocean and canal that surrounds the multi-million dollar homes at Kailuana Place where the President stays, informed them of restrictions that will be implemented for 20 days beginning Dec. 17 and running through Jan. 6.

In a matter of weeks, Kailua residents will see the familiar street barricades fronted by U.S. Secret Service agents, and Navy Seals and the U.S. Coast Guard stationed in canal and ocean waters.
