Brickbat: Aloha! Here's Your Fine.


Lawmakers in Hawaii are looking at instituting a statewide mask mandate. As part of that effort, some officials want to give police the power to issue fines on the spot for violations of the mandate rather than wait for courts to determine if a fine will be issued. Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell says he would like to see a fine of $500 for violating any mask mandate.
