City Transportation Services Director Wayne Yoshioka says the city is not setting a precedent by moving a Kapiolani bus stop because of complaints about a homeless woman who had taken up residence at the shelter near Keeaumoku Street.
The city received complaints from bus riders who didn't like having to wait for the bus near the homeless woman, who has hygiene issues.
Tessie Cadelina, 66, who catches the bus daily to and from work, said Thursday, "I no like sit down if the lady stay there. The smell."

Atlanta public school education victim.
Evidently the ‘homeless’ lady is not so homeless.
If I had to be homeless somewhere, Hawaii wouldn’t be so bad. I love the beach and could sleep on the beach every night of the year.
Hose her down and move her to a bus stop near the zoo. She’ll blend right in.
Why doesn't the homeless woman take up residence at the Governor's Mansion? I'm sure it's much nicer there, and they have showers.
I mean if public facilities are not allowed to be dedicated to a specific purpose, why not?
Nothing a fire hose wouldn’t cure.
When I deposited my mother at that bus stop a couple years ago, I felt it was an ideal location for her to meet more people and enjoy her retirement years. Also, she stunk up my carport.
If those of you complaining would only treat your family with as much care and love as I do (I stop by at least twice a week with McDouble cheeseburgers and handi-wipes), you might be more likely to understand the desire for alternative living arrangements of today's ecologically sensitive seniors. She is living off the land and loving every minute of it, and I fully support her individuality. Except when she is defecating in discarded coffee cups, that is just gross.
I can’t think of a better place to be homeless.
San diego not a bad spot either....
State 2 is accompanied by all kinds of excuses and fingerpointing at various boogiemen. See Vast Right Wing Conspiracy for more on this.
When I was a kid in the 60s there were no homeless. You could go anywhere downtown and not be bothered. Then, the ACLU sued during the Carter administration and forced all people being held in mental institutions without their consent to be released; instant homeless problem. The vast majority of the homeless have mental issues that prevent them from being productive members of society. But they cant be institutionalized unless theyre a danger to themselves or others. Now, the mandated costs of institutionalization make it unlikely anybody will be institutionalized even for the 2 week detox period officials used from the Reagan administration until the present. It just cost too many taxpayer dollars. So, people who are incredibly dangerous simply do damage until they get put into the prison system; where they remain dangerous but temporarily out of action.
The main public library downtown has a full-time armed police guard who patrols every corner of all four floors continuously. There have been rapes, muggings and all manner of assaults. They cant kick the homeless out until the library closes. The librarians told me they wont go into some areas without the cop. The homeless pee and poop in the corners. This problem mostly exists because theres a homeless shelter a block away.
San Diego not a bad spot either....
In practice, this statement becomes "but they can't be institutionalized until they kill at least one person."
"pass the wipes!" :)
Yes folks, it WAS that bad..till Rudy cleaned it up. We forget..

Bar of soap. tub of water, chain gang from the local or county jail. Problem solved.
I’ve heard that, but it’s a bit too close to the border for my liking. ;>)
Well, you can wash them up once but they just keep pooping.
