Snitches get quarantine violator arrested


"An Arizona woman visiting Hawaii was arrested after allegedly violating the state's mandatory order that tourists and returning residents self-isolate for 14 days.

Alyza Alder, 18, of Gilbert, was taken into custody on Wednesday at a fast-food restaurant in Laie where she was working, according to a press release from the governor's office.

Alder arrived in O‘ahu on May 6 and days later began posting photos of herself at beaches in Laie and Hauula. Investigators said that during the time she should have been under quarantine, Alder got a job at a local restaurant.

She was arrested after a local resident reported to authorities that Alder was allegedly in violation of the emergency order.

She's being held on a $2,000 bail and faces charges of violating the order and for "unsworn falsification to authority," according to the release."

Anybody who calls the cops on people for this should be slapped.

Hawaii really hates transients:

"A New York City tourist, Tarique Peters, 23, was arrested in Hawaii last week after also allegedly violating the quarantine order. He was taken into custody after residents saw him posting photos to social media of himself at the beach.

Staff at the hotel where Peters was staying also told authorities that they saw him leave the premises several times while he was supposed to be self-isolating.

The Hawaii Transportation Department in April said travelers arriving in Hawaii must self-quarantine and sign a document acknowledging that violating the rule is a criminal offense that could result in a $5,000 fine and/or a year in jail."


Connors thanked local spotters for noticing Peters (an Instagram post from May 4th showed him in New York City, in Bryant Park). Hotel staffers were also credited for telling investigators they noticed Peters leaving his hotel room several times.

“We appreciate the assistance of local people who spot flagrant violations of our emergency rules on various social media sites and report them to the appropriate authorities," said Connors in a press release.

Angry comments from Hawaii residents flooded Peters' Instagram.

"Aloha doesn’t mean you get to come to Hawaii with a complete disregard to laws that are in place to keep us safe! We don’t have the amazing medical infrastructure the mainland has and we can not handle Covid the way most places in the USA can," wrote one poster, turquoiseshadows. "We are a tiny island in the middle of the ocean. Did you not think that you could be bringing Covid to us and spreading Covid in a place that can not handle it in any way? Or did you think only [of] your selfish desires? Please reflect on this on your way home and when you get there figure out a way to apologize to all the people who call Hawaii home and the elders who live here."

The rules are the rules mfers.

About half the violators incriminate themselves on social media

Yes, if you agree to self isolate or face a fine, then post pictures of yourself non self isolating, then you deserve a fine.
