Residents Who don't want to Deal with Them.

American Scofflaw

The case of a Hawaii Census worker arrested for trespassing while trying to do his job is heading to federal court.

It's the latest example of disputes this year between Census workers protected by federal law and residents who don't want to deal with them.

The Census worker, Russell Haas, found trouble on Hawaii's Big Island on March 20 when a resident refused to accept Census forms and told Haas to leave his fenced property.

Then the resident, a county police officer, called his co-workers at the Hawaii County Police Department. Haas was then arrested.

Census workers have met more hostility than they did in the last count. The agency tallied 436 incidents involving assaults or threats through June 29, more than double the 181 incidents in 2000.
