Hawaii law doesn't apply on the high seas.
As a US-flagged vessel, federal law would apply to a physical assault or murder on the high seas. But the State of Hawaii couldn't arrest anyone without a federal warrant.
Ok then. If Rock was so concerned as to future actions by Capt, why was there not an arrest on landing? Why did Rock not file a complaint?
