Albatross conservation efforts put back 10 years by callous youths

This may have been reported here in 2015 when the crime first happened. But I've only just read about it today - what horrible, callous people those youths are to go around killing all those birds - just for the fun of it.

Appalling in itself, made worse by the likelihood that daddy's money will shield the despicable sons of privilege from any real consequences.

That's why there need to be proportional fines.
In this case, a blacklist and declaring the perps personae non gratae in the State of Hawaii wouldn't hurt either.

Better yet jail time and a police record which would hurt long term, cancelling out some of their privilege.
