The APEC summit in Hawaii was supposed to head off “trouble” like the protests against APEC in Korea and elsewhere, where  large-scale protests have dogged the APEC meetings. In Hawaii,  “homeless families were moved out of sight and millions of taxpayer dollars were spent on security—including over $700,000 on non-lethal weapons for crowd control,” according to The Yes Lab. In fact, a local man was killed by an “imported” special agent, and is facing charges.

State Department Special Agent Christopher Deedy has been charged with second-degree murder and using a firearm in the commission of a felony. Deedy, 27, was released Monday after posting $250,000 bail and is expected to appear in court Thursday.

Deedy was in Honolulu to help with security at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit. He has been put on paid administrative leave.
