Five days a week, city workers hit the streets to conduct sweeps on Honolulu sidewalks. It’s part of a controversial ordinance that went into effect last July, that allows officials to clear streets occupied by the homeless and their belongings. HPR’s Molly Solomon was there as one was taking place in Kaka‘ako Thursday morning, where some believe a "Hawaii Five-0" shoot is to blame.
