When you have a hammer, use it for good

• Free Press Publications
If one wishes to help the homeless, smashing what few possessions they do have is among the worst ways to do so. Such action is sure to ruin one's reputation, especially if the person in question is a State Legislator. The possibility of a ruined reputation didn't stop Tom Brower, a Hawai'i State Senator, from taking a sledghammer to shopping carts that were allegedly being used by some homeless people near Waikiki. Brower told KITV-4, “I chose a sledgehammer only because the carts need to be destroyed to get them off the street,” adding, “I got tired of telling people, 'I'm trying to pass laws.' I wanted to do something practical, that will really clean up the streets.”
