Failing To Adhere To Social Distancing Guidelines Can Now Result In A Manhunt. No, Really.

(Tea Party 247) – The Maui Police Department recently posted to Facebook that they were on the lookout for a young woman who had apparently been a little too socially un-distant.

The Maui PD wrote:

Police are requesting your assistance in locating Tara Trunfio. Trunfio is wanted for violating the Rules and Orders for failure to quarantine. Trunfio is described as a 24 year old, Caucasian female, height 5’11”, weight 155 lbs., with brown hair and hazel eyes. She was last seen in Haiku, and may now be in the Kihei area. Anyone with information is asked to please contact the Maui Police Department.

On May 16, Maui PD issued an update to their original post that they had the woman in custody and thanked the public for their assistance.

Yeah. Good job, people of Maui.

The update read:

On May 16, 2020 at about 2:31 a.m., Tara Trunfio (23) of Colorado, was arrested for two (2) counts of Rules and Orders.

Investigation reveals that Trunfio arrived on Maui, acknowledged the Emergency Proclamations set forth by Governor David Ige and Mayor Michael Victorino with regards to the Traveler 14 Day Quarantine, however failed to comply.

The Maui Police Department added:

An all-points bulletin was put out for her arrest, and posted to social media. There were over 300,000 people reached with the post and over 5,000 comments, some positive and some negative.

On May 16, 2020 at about 1:40 a.m., police were dispatched to a residence in Kula, regarding a female later identified as Trunfio, on the property refusing to leave.

Maui Police Department will continue to enforce the rules and orders set forth by the Governor of the State of Hawaii, Mayor of Maui County, and Hawaii Revised Statutes.

Trunfio’s bail is set at $4,000.00. She remains in police custody as of May 16, 2020 at 9:45 a.m.

The now-viral updated Facebook post received the harsh scrutiny of over 8,000 social media users.

National File notes:

The Police Department was compared to totalitarian mid-20th century political regimes.

Across the pond, in the UK, the police have come under immense fire after several different images have circulated social media showing potential overreach.

One man had his front door kicked in after reports that he was hosting a party–thereby breaching social distancing–had emerged. With a gung-ho attitude, the police, failing to wear any protective gear, cavalierly charged into the lone man’s apartment as he filmed them searching the premises for non-existent revelers.

During a confrontation with the police, a defiant but innocent man wasthreatened to have charges made up by police in order to bring him in. The video went viral on social media and the Police Department responsible was forced to suspend the officer in question and to issue a statement.


  1. Sounds like Maui and the Hawaiian islands are anti visitor. Both the Governor and mayors have super ceded their constitutional rights to hunt people down for a non crime. Then to keep this young lady in jail where she will probably get the covid is reprehensible. And those that ratted her out are anti American. She committed no real crime, only a made up one by totalitarian fascist.

  2. ” Online Jobs 2020 Here ”

    My best friend’s mother makes $75 hourly on the laptop. She has been without work for 5 months but last month her payment was $17704 just working on the laptop for a few hours.

    Over here………………… W­o­r­k­4­6.C­o­m

  3. Socialism…… I mean progressive democracy at its finest! Pay attention, all of you who desire the progressive democracy in America.

  4. Welcome to socialism. If the stupid people that are Democrats vote for Biden then we will be 100% socialism. Is this what true Americans want. Maybe President Trump hasn’t done everything that people want but if the Democrats take over we are in for a rough way of living.

  5. Should have never BOUGHT Hawaii. May not have lost so many patriots in the 2nd WW…
    Great Job, BACK STABBERS…
    police are also JUST as bad !!!!!!!!!!!!
    Sounds right WiGilliiam SIMPSON…

  6. The LUNATICS are RUNNING the ASSYLUM . . . Run for your lives! Those DASTARDLY citizens weren’t SOCIAL DISTANCING?!? How HORRIFIC! Like, the WORLD will end in 12 years (Oh, I’m sorry – wrong scenario, that’s the so called “climate change” (?!?) disaster). Oh, well, what do I know? I just believe in COMMON SENSE (no, not COMMON CORE, another disaster) and “herd immunity”. What will these Left Wing Liberals think of NEXT? COMMON SENSE?!? uh . . . NO. One enlightened but Wary Patriot (LAUGHING, but WARY). Thank GOD I’m living in Florida and a Republican! Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  7. Then why there isn’t a manhunt for Chris Cuomo and George Stephanopoulos for coming out in public during quarantine? Maybe because they were confirmed having COVID-19 and this girl wasn’t even confirmed to have it? Can’t be more backwards than this! Did common sense really disappeared? The rules don’t apply the same to everyone, everywhere in US?

  8. Hawaii has now joined CA, WA, OR, NY, IL, NJ, MI and CT in the The Federation of the Union of Communist States of Utopia (FUCSU).

    Hopefully the rational individuals of the other 41 (or in Obama case the other 49 states) and tell HI to take a flying leap at the proverbial rolling doughnut and spend their vacation money elsewhere!


  10. That quarantine has got to be hard on tourism. Most people can’t afford a 14 day quarantine on their week long vacation. They might as well shut the island down for tourism. Make it so only the rich with plenty of time can go there. The hell with the rest of us. Democrat controlled.

  11. This BS cannot stand! There are always some peopole that just cannot resist the urge to screw over others. When this happens the party taking the offensive and unlawful position should pay the price for their lunacy!

  12. The best bet for those of us who read the Bill of Rights, Constitution and Declaration of Independence need to leave the democratically run states for the freedom loving republican ones and let the democrats be dictators over the people who vote for them. Then we need to cut our taxes off from them. Do not vacation there as they despise us anyway. All you have to do is read one of their hateful posts calling for us to be attacked, interned in prison for re-indoctrination. Shame our nation can not be divided into liberal and conservative and see which part survives and witch does not. San Fran is a fine example of how the liberal states might go, then you have Chicago, NY and so on. Let the snitches tattle on the snitches and they can keep their criminals and illegals as well.

  13. It’s not “Distancing Guidelines” or “Social Distancing”, it’s actually “CROWD CONTROL”. Another Liberty given up under the auspices of so called “Safety“. Come on Citizens, vote these Subversives out of office or the “Tyranny” will only get more severe. Wasn’t the Covid-19 Scam enough for you? Want more? Vote Democratic.

  14. Man this makes no sense. Throw this woman in jail for not social distancing while many states and cities are letting real criminals out so they dont get Covid 19. Guess officials want this young lady to be a victim.

    Go Democrats Go, keep showing America how dangerous and stupid your ideals are.

  15. Tyranny at its best. I was proud to have been LAW enforement but now after seeing all this – I AM ASHAMED AND NOW UNDERSTAND THE HATE AND DISRESPECT PEOPLE FEEL. I remember history when they turned in family – friends and neighbors to the brown shirts and Gestapo.

  16. What gets me is that people don’t understand what they are doing by turning these people in, this is exactly what Nazi Germany did and also Communist Russia did. When things get turned into a police state because of some over bearing politicians, you are then giving up your rights. What will be next after the covid virus is done, they will find another excuse to take more of your rights away. One by one they will destroy your rights. I am old but I see the writing on the wall for my kids and grandkids not being able to some things that we have always had the rights to do. I will be praying for people to open their eyes to what they are doing to you.

  17. Lots of other places to visit like Costs Rica!
    Hawaii needs a wake up call … Their gestapo tactics will bring them down REAL HARD!
    Like the song goes , some people got to
    learn the hard way…

  18. This is extreme PD response, but it points to irresponsible behavior by some residents. Here near L.A. our fair city failed to act in a similar case of a party. The only problem was, a woman who attended was coughing, laughing that she, “Might have Covid.” She tested positive and infected 4 other people, two of whom lived in other cities, thereby increasing the chance of it spreading more widely. I wrote to the city, asking if there were any consequences to the host or the sick woman and the city attorney said no, there didn’t appear to be an intent to spread the illness so they aren’t going to do anything. Wow, you’d think community service or attending a public health course civic responsibility or infection control but nothing. In our NextDoor group the big concern was where the ill woman had been- markets, gas stations, strolling through an unknown neighborhood… Wow.

    • Are you her tracker now?
      You know this is exactly the kind of stuff
      that was going on in communist countries
      before the wall fell , if you even know
      what that is . I’d advise you to mind your
      own business. What goes around comes

    • Well Meredith are you going to become a nazi spy and tell on your neighbors. I never ever thought this could happen in the US. People wake up and that includes you Meredith.
      God help us.

    • What is wrong with you? Have you ever hear the word freedom. The people were free to go or not. The Gov is NOT your nanny.
      You want to drink, smoke, eat garbage…that is your freedom to do so. You going to start going around yanking cigs out of peoples mouths, knocking beer out of their hands, grabing the Twinkies from them?
      I don’t drink, smoke, or eat junk food, but if they want to go right ahead.

    • Meredith is obviously a product of the public school system. See a problem? Call a government agency. A government agency wants to institute some harebrained policy? You’d better obey it; it’s for your own good. See someone not following a rule? Call the cops on them.
      You undoubtedly have some fine qualities, Meredith. For one, it’s clear that you are concerned about your neighbors. Now you need to learn that you are not a nanny and that government shouldn’t be, either.

    • I wonder how you would feel when the next new rule comes down the line and you don’t agree with it. Will you be upset when your neighbors turn you in? Brown shirt today, next victim tomorrow.


  20. Sounds like Hawaii needs a total Pearl Harbour or a great tsunami with a volcano blow to sink Paradise
