What Exit Did Maui's Children Take?
Home alone and roads blocked
The numbers of missing goes down, while the death toll has not risen
Yet the media carries few stories of happy reunions with relatives
Confirmed dead are 97 (down from 115) of whom only two are children
Fewer than half of Lahainaluna HS’ 1,050 pupils reported to school this week
No update on roughly 2,000 pupils who failed to re-enrol with school
They were at home, while their parents were at work - how did they escape?
When the wildfires turned into an urban inferno the exits were blocked
Police chief Pelletier has called documented proof of road closures ‘false’
He is also the coroner, meaning he influences the reports of casualties
Fire fighters, water authorities and police are being blamed
They were “only following orders” - so who gave them?
There is clearly much to cover up - criminal negligence at the very least
Pelletier was the incident commander at the 2017 Las Vegas massacre
Since arriving in Maui, many of his reports have resigned; his secretary died
Officials rely on emotion and fear, rather than explain what they did or did not do
“Conspiracy theories flourish in the absence of explanation, political analyst Neil Milner told the local ABC affilate.”
But that is not an excuse for journalists to stand down.

Evidence of atrocity continues to emerge. The death toll of children remains contested. Officials have shortened the list of the missing; while admitting it contains only those reported to police.
School authorities have provided no update on their earlier statement that roughly 2,000 pupils out of 3,000 had failed to re-enrol. An estimated 500 Lahainaluna High School students reported Thursday to their temporary home at Kulanihako’i High for the first time since they were told to stay at home during the Aug 8 fire. That’s less than half the 1,050 who attended the school before the fire. 
Police named two more victims of the Lahaina fire of Aug 8. They were aged 60 and 78, and so far only two children are among the 97 confirmed fatalities (the total is down from previous estimates of 115). 
Maui’s mayor Richard Bissen has bristled at questions about missing children. 
The last major update of lists by Maui police department was a month after the fire, on Sep 8. We shall come to the details, and anomalies, in a moment.
Since that date, the number of missing has stayed at 66. In addition, the identity of 80 people “possible unaccounted for” has not been verified.
In a moment we’ll read governor Josh Green’s latest explanation of the numbers. He is quoted at length so that the reader can weigh his remarks.
To summarise, the apparent anomalies include:
Only people reported as missing go on the missing persons list.
In that case the numbers should initially rise up with time, not fall.
Especially as the number of remains identified has stayed constant at about 65.
Police will not investigate deaths from Oct 8, except where a report has been filed.
Governor Josh Green repeated several times, on Sep 8, that Maui police only add people to the missing persons’ list when a member of the public files a report.
“At the two month mark, the only investigations they’ll be able to even consider are for people who have filed police reports with them, with extra information. But of course we are not rushing a soul, because this is such a heartbreaking situation.”
Green clearly suggested there is a deadline of two months, after which missing persons will not be added to the list. For comparison, the remains of two people killed in the explosion of the World Trade Center were identified this past September — fully 22 years after the atrocity.
Police chief John Pelletier confirmed only people who have had a missing person report filed for them with the Maui Police Department are on the verified missing list.
Why the authorities are not working from the 2020 census, or other official lists of residents such as business, tax or records of births, marriages and deaths, or even utility bills, remains unclear.
In his statement of Sep 8, governor Green said:
“The FBI has reported that 66 of our people are potentially still unaccounted for, based on calls and emails they have received, and in many cases they only have names of these individuals on a list, and no other information. This is the number that was initially over 3,000 and then dropped to 385 last week and now, I repeat, is at 66.
“The Maui police department continues to make daily progress and missing persons reports and encourages families to share information about any missing loved ones…
Since August 16, the American Red Cross, the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency, and FEMA have relocated over 7,500 displaced survivors from shelters to a total of 29 hotels and hundreds of Airbnbs. 15,931 individuals have filed for FEMA relief.”
Police chief is coroner
As of the 2020 census, Lahaina had a population of more than 12,000. More than 2,200 buildings were destroyed, almost all residential, across about two-thirds of the area of the town.
In another press conference the same day, governor Green added:
“From all across Maui, all across the world, saying they’re worried that a person is missing, they put that person’s name on their list; they try and get more information, best they can, but usually just get a first name or a first and last name, they don’t get whether it is a man or a woman, where they live, they may not get any other information. So they have to go one by one and find out if that person is a duplicate on another list, if they actually are found, if they're in the hospital or if, God forbid, they’re deceased…
“I am trying to give extra information so that people understand more thoroughly why there are additional numbers. The current number that the Maui police department is actively investigating, where they have a full report, name, first name, last name, maybe the address of that person, so that can be lined up as the search goes, because our search and rescue team is able to determine in one block, there was a person, that number is 41.
“At the two month mark, the only investigations they'll be able to even consider are for people who have filed police reports with them, with extra information. But of course we are not rushing a soul, because this is such a heartbreaking situation.” 
One of the first statements of Maui police chief John Pelletier was that bodies had been turned to ash, and that in many cases there would be no remains. In Maui the police chief is also the coroner, meaning Pelletier controls the release of information.
The coroner is also helped by a medical examiner, known as the Maui County physician’s coroner, Dr. Jeremy Stuelpnagel. He was quoted by Associated Press: “When the fire broke out, people ran together, they huddled together. They’re holding each other in those moments. Some of them were even holding pets.” Because of this, some remains arrived commingled.”
From Sep 25 residents will be able to visit, if they apply for a permit, the remains of their property. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will then remove fire damaged material with the owners’ approval.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says it has cleared 464 properties of hazardous household materials. These include paints, solvents, oils, batteries and pesticides. 
Residents will be accompanied by accompanied by representatives of the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (National VOAD) which includes many “charities” that, it must be admitted, are on board with the Climate Change and globalist agenda. 
These organisations call this part of their work, disaster philanthropy — the flip side of disaster capitalism; in the same way that these charities keep developing nations dependent on aid; in the same way they whitewash the West’s resource wars by picking up the pieces.
Images continue to emerge of the strange Lahaina fires. The fact that the flames were localised and torched only the old town has been widely discussed.
The Landsat 8 satellite image on Aug 8 shows how the flames followed the districts boundaries.
Intrepid reporters piece together evidence from residential districts that did not burn, like behind Lahainaluna High School. There, among the untouched houses, are cars whose wind shields melted.
One investigator said the melted glass indicated temperatures that exceeded 3,000 degrees F or 1,600 C. Only the steel chassis remained. Apart from the fuel in the cars, there is no accelerant responsible for the melting of steel, glass and aluminium.
Many corporate properties were left untouched, like the Lahaina Shores Beach Resort, owned by Hyatt, or the Pritzker family.
The Biden administration recently appointed Penny Pritzker as the U.S. Special Representative for Ukraine’s Economic Recovery.
Officials cannot explain the monstrous decision to declare the morning’s fires “contained,” leaving them unguarded, while simultaneously claiming that winds were strong enough to send children home from school — in the event gusts did not exceed 55 mph — and then to decide against sounding the sirens.
Nor was the wind as strong as officials have claimed: Hurricane Dora that was 500-800 miles away.
Even if the fires began as isolated brush fires they tranformed by mid-afternoon into what Maui residents called an urban or industrial fire. Officials have not said at what time police determined that to be so.
However, once it was known to be an urban fire, why did police close exit roads on the pretext that bush fires were the greater threat? Who decided that as the town burned, it was too risky for people to leave?
At 3:30 p.m. Maui County announced on Facebook that it closed the bypass due to a flare up from the brush fire that had been thought contained in the morning. Police chief John Pelletier has called documented reports of road closures false.
“I can tell you that we did everything we can to make sure that we preserve life and protect each other. We have already found that some of the false reports on the direction of travel were not correct. We were getting people out of the area. We were forcing people not to go, at a certain point, down Front Street because it had already gotten too late. So the efforts were to get people away from the fire and away from the danger.” 
The O’Keefe Media Group has filed suit against governor Green after James O’Keefe and his team were threatened by police while filming. Other police admitted there was no legal basis for the ban.
“James O’Keefe and Attorney Mike Yoder have filed a lawsuit against Hawaii Governor to invalidate the criminalization of protected First Amendment activity.”
An independent Maui company has offered evidence suggesting that multiple failures in the power grid likely triggered fires — in other words not simply wind blowing down power lines, and certainly not climate change.
The data was collected through a network of smart sensors known as Ting, required by insurers to spot electrical hazards at homes, also detect grid-wide issues in real time.
On August 7th at 10:47 p.m., an explosion occurred near Maui Bird Conservation Center in upcountry Maui. Soon after, flames appeared along the tree line. In West Maui, data indicated significant grid stress.
A group of fire experts from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) arrived in Maui at the end of August to determine the cause of the fire.
Overseeing the control of information is Maui police chief John Pelletier, who has held the job since Dec 2021. He was the incident commander at the 2017 Las Vegas massacre, and he brought his deputy from Nevada, too.
