Miss Deedy

Chris Deedy shot & killed a man in a crowded McDonalds in Waikiki. It was 2:30 AM. Both men had been drinking.

After the shooting, Deedy refused to be tested for drunkenness (see link).  Kollin Elderts was tested as a corpse, involuntarily.

Elderts is dead. Christopher Deedy is on trial for murder (second-degree).  No winners.

An inexperienced Federal employee, Deedy has worked for short periods in Baghdad (Iraq) and Benghazi (Libya). Deedy may have felt comfortable barking orders at the people of Hawaii as perhaps he'd done in the Middle East. Whatever the case, Deedy's use of deadly force, precipitous & ill-advised, was a major tragedy.
