Rebel News reporter Alexa Lavoie recently conducted an interview with a local resident of Maui who expressed his deep frustration with the government’s response to the devastating wildfire that has ravaged the island. The resident, who lost everything in the fire, blamed the lack of timely warnings and activated emergency sirens for his inability to salvage his belongings.
In the interview, the resident exclaimed, “THIS IS BULLSHIT, we are not stupid” when asked about the absence of emergency sirens on the day of the fire. According to the mayor, the sirens were not activated because there was a fear that people would accidentally run towards the fire. However, the resident strongly disagreed with this reasoning, stating that if they had been warned earlier in the afternoon, they could have saved not only their belongings but also prevented the tragic deaths that occurred during the fire. The resident claimed that the death toll reported by the government is misleading, as it only accounts for those who were recovered and not the bodies that sunk in the ocean.
The interview highlights the collective anger and frustration among residents who feel that their safety was compromised due to the government’s negligence. The lack of proper warning systems and communication has left many feeling betrayed and unsupported in their time of need.
