One officer said the incident should remind people not to make idle threats at the harbor or other public facilities.The employee sounds like a class act.
“Don’t use the terrorist word. That’s not a good thing,” said Jim Medeiros, a sheriff’s deputy and facility security officer for Kahului Harbor. “We do take it seriously.”
Medeiros said the incident started when an elderly male passenger died of natural causes on the ship. The ship was closed off for about five minutes while medical personnel removed the body. The employee was angry about the closure and confronted ship officials.
“He made some statements, and he’s now getting removed,” Medeiros said.
