Hawaii Court Decides Spanking is a Parental Right

It was reported on local news. It couldn’t be here, I thought, then looked  online for confirmation. Yep, there it was: “Hawaii parents still can spank” in a big, bold headline font. What’s even better, in overturning the parent’s conviction, the appellate court cited a 2007 Hawaii Supreme Court decision: ‘parents have a privilege to subject children to reasonable corporal punishment.’

State Public Defender representing the parent said, “this week’s ruling is consistent with previous decisions holding that ‘the state should not be delving into the area of parental discipline when it is applied within reason.'”

In the midst of political insanity and topsy-turvy Government Interference, this was a surprise. Hawaii is, after all, the Left State of Aloha, where Unions and cronyism rule by their own interpretation of plantation governance.

      As I heard it, Hawaii is the only state the SC supports parental rights.
