NOTE:
Some one did a good job of keeping this under wraps and in-house until, what may be, a final decision. He could always appeal. Was he represented by Individual Military Counsel or Detailed Counsel? Was this a sting operation by CGIS or Hawaii Five-O? Did a disgruntled customer turn him in? How did a person with his skills-set , or lack thereof, manage to squeeze through 4 years at CGA? Where did he learn his trade, in high school or in New London? Is there a background or character profile available? Is this an on-going investigation?
He did not just start manufacturing and selling in Hawaii. My guess is, he learned his skills in high school, perfected them at CGA, and had many customers in New London. How many complaints were made against him at CGA? Was he just a distributor, or was he also a user? Did he ever pop positive at a routine drug screening? Whe were is accomplices? A lone wolf would not make it so far done the pipe line without aid and comfort from someone; like, co-conspirators.

CGC KUKUI's History


CGC Kukui (WAK-186)
Named after the state tree of Hawaii, the Coast Guard Cutter KUKUI is the third ship of the Juniper class of seagoing buoy tenders, and the third cutter to bear the name KUKUI.  The first KUKUI was a 190 foot tender built by the New York Ship Building Company.  Delivered prior to the completion of the Panama Canal, KUKUI sailed around Cape Horn enroute to its new home in Honolulu, Hawaii.  KUKUI's top speed was 13.5 knots.  From 1908 until 1946, KUKUI performed aids to navigation duties, such as the servicing of buoys and lighthouses in the Hawaiian and Pacific waters.  The Second KUKUI (shown above) was a 339 foot cargo ship homeported in Honolulu from 1946 to 1972.  The ship constructed long range navigation (LORAN) stations and provided many of the isolated Pacific Islands with food, medical support and building supplies.
Today's KUKUI is one of the world's most capable buoy tenders.  Built in Marinette, Wisconsin, by the Marinette Marine Corporation, KUKUI was launched on May 3, 1997.  Like its two predecessors, the latest KUKUI is homeported on Sand Island in Honolulu, Hawaii.  Although primarily tasked with aids to navigation work, by incorporating state-of-the-art technology and an onboard spilled oil recovery system, KUKUI can excel in a wide variety of missions.

Sting operation by CGIS? You have to be kidding me. They couldn't find a Russian in Moscow. They are too busy anyway going after people considered to be political dissidents to have time to be concerned with criminals.
