This talk examines an unnamed deputy sheriff’s shooting of Delmar Espejo at the Hawaiʻi State Capitol Building in Honolulu on Feb. 18, 2019. Lisa Marie Cacho argues that the reason why Delmar Espejo could be shot and killed had less to do with his actions and more to do with the role of law enforcement agencies in enforcing settler colonialism, normalizing U.S. occupation, and securing colonial racial capitalism and private property relations.
