    I think someone is gonna get a very bad review on their next employee evaluation.

  • Buzz LightBeer (Jan 15, 2018)

    Hawaii doesn't fire government workers unless they did something wrong on purpose

  • Kitty Midnight (Jan 15, 2018)

  • cor ninsin95 (Jan 16, 2018)

    Google sets the trending list.

  • MoonGlow (Jan 14, 2018) can it be an accident? The Emergency Alert system even with NO failsafe wouldn't automatically select "Incoming Ballistic Missile" There are multiple warnings that MUST be selected. Storms; Tidal Waves; Earthquake; Volcanic Eruption and so on. Why would only "Ballistic Missile" get sent out over the air! NO MISTAKE Tell us the real reason the STATE did this!!!

  • NPC-Bear (Jan 16, 2018)

    Could it be NK launched a missile into the sea of japan.... Hmmmmmmm

  • Abnovelists (Jan 15, 2018)

    MoonGlow They were hacked

  • Mike (Jan 14, 2018)

    There isnt a "button" a software program that you would have to log onto and select message then have to press confirm send at least once

  • Shelby Jean (Jan 15, 2018)

    I smell something fishy

    This error may end up saving lives if a real emergency takes place. I bet many people are now more prepared than they were before with an emergency kit they can put in their truck and drive up the volcano. I'm thinking dry food, bottle water, tent, flash light, warm clothes (because it gets cold up the volcano at night), medicine, important numbers written down in case phone dies, and a plan on what to do and where to go if they need to evacuate their city... Or maybe this was their plan all along; to ...

    J Nope

  • So-glassin-son -05 (Jan 15, 2018)

    I I am of Hawaiian descent by 50% the fact that that second man took responsibility for his actions completely shows that most of any other Americans / country in this world Representatives wouldn't even stand to take the accountability for something they have done wrong even though it may have been chains of chains below them that man still took accountability for something that his team slash people he looks over as his responsibility that's what are Hawaiian culture are Polynesian culture are Samoan...

  • The Dealer (Jan 16, 2018)

    Nohea Carreira Yeah who ever did it, I am still shocked to see someone take the blame on this in this day an age. Washington DC should take notes.

  • K King (Jan 15, 2018)

    This was an Act of TERRORISM and should be treated as such~! It Was NO Mistake. There is a series of 5 things that had to happen, People had heart attacks, Head's should roll.

  • Michael Allen (Jan 14, 2018)

    Do you really believe it was a mistake. I don’t I feel that it is a coverup by the government how can one mistake could have happen but the backup system didn’t catch it so when the missile that was coming in was shot down before any body seen it so they can say it was a mistake

  • BurnTrees (Jan 20, 2018)

    Tactical Bacon Uh clearly yes?

  • Specter (Jan 15, 2018)

    I'm so distrusting that I still think they just don't want to admit they were hacked.

  • DarkStoneCastle (Jan 15, 2018)

    When is NBC news going to be investigated?

  • TheUnDrunkPCBastard _ (Jan 22, 2018)

    +Tactical Bacon That tells me you didn't watch one single video I linked.

  • Tactical Bacon (Jan 19, 2018)
