Updated Day Of Infamy White House Address

[From article]
I would caution others not to rush to any judgment. We should not jump to any conclusions about this alleged criminal act. Above all, I want to be perfectly clear that it is important that we not demonize these folks – that’s just not who we are!
[. . .]
We must never jump to conclusions. As we are a nation of laws, it is important that we wait patiently for Justice Department lawyers to decide what happened on December 7.
[. . .]
I have sent a shout-out to the Sheriff’s Department of Oahu County, as well as the chief of the Hawaiian Fishing and Game Commission, to investigate these alleged crimes and for their teams to have their reports on my desk in time for the next late Friday afternoon news dump.
[. . .]
Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory, and our interests are in grave danger as long as we misunderstand others and fail to address legitimate grievances.
