State Representative Tom Brower created quite a controversy earlier this week with his sledge-hammer attacks on grocery shopping carts in Waikiki as his way to rid the area of homelessness.   The Honolulu City Council has been pursuing another method by creating a new law that would ban lying down on public sidewalks in certain districts.    HPR’s Wayne Yoshioka has been following this story and filed this report.
