I guess I just can't see why you keep overlooking the water situation. In my opinion, that's the crux of everything.
Smack,
The "no water issue" is not really an issue. The CG, Navy, or any one of a number of container ships running between California and Hawaii every day can and would drop water to these men and woman within hours notice if they really needed it. At most they are 1500 miles from Hawaii or CA and that is less than a 4 hr flight by the CG with air drop capabilities.

Interesting the CG did not respond to Rocks calls.

Don't understand why this crew did not file charges on landing on Hawaii if they thought they were so wronged. Actually, the crew is guilty of Terrroristic Theatening (a State of Hawaii charge) and the State of Hawaii takes this very seriously, much more so than other states. Terroristic Theatening pertains to both verbal and physical threats. The state would press charges if the Captain notified the authorities.

Definitions:
Terroristic Threatening
Hawaii Penal Code 707-716, 717
Definition: To verbally threaten another person. There are two different degrees of Terroristic Threatening Terroristic Threatening 1st - Threatening someone on more than one occasion for the same or a similar purpose. Threatening a Public Servant (ex. Police Officer, Teacher). Threatening someone with a dangerous instrument. Classification: Class C Felony Terroristic Threatening 2nd - A person threatens another person other than as provided in Terroristic Threatening 1st. Classification: Misdemeanor

Examples:

You are angry and upset with with someone and say that you will end their life, while holding any kind of weapon in your hand.
You threaten a person by saying that you will end their life.
You threaten a police officer or Teacher.
