Were Officers Beaten In Camp Humphrey Ville?

I recently received a tip that in the past month a couple of officers were severely beaten in the Camp Humphrey ville. Has anyone else heard of these beatings and know if there is any truth to the claim?

    Short answer, Yes.

    As factual as I can tell it. One Warrant Officer was leaving a convenience store, and was harrassed/roughed up by some locals. Another Warrant Officer is still hospitalized after his encounter with some locals while on his way home alone. I do not have specifics beyond what I have posted.

    This is a force protection issue. They are willing to curtail freedom of movement for various and questionable reasons under the guise of force protection yet when there is a REAL force protection issue, not a peep.

    American officers beaten and harassed near Camp Humphrey? What we should do is spend hundreds of million of taxpayer dollars building additional military facilities and station more American soldiers there-not. Keep us posted GI.

    6. Or the command could at least post a blub on their facebook stating that there have been issues and for people to be aware.

    Not the first time, not the last. Remember when three Koreans stabbed a Lt.Col. in 2002? I knew this man. He was an excellent officer. The Korean media didn’t say jack SH!T about that, and they wont report on this incident as well. Dont officers need a battle buddy off post?

    “2002 stabbing. Boylan was attacked on the night of December 15, 2002 outside Seoul, South Korea’s Yongsan Garrison, the headquarters of the United States Forces Korea. According to his statement to police, he was attacked by three Korean men in their twenties, who cursed at him in English, pushed him from behind, and stabbed him with a 5-inch blade. He received a cut on his left side, below the ribcage, for which he was treated at a base hospital; he did not require stitches. Boylan had come to public attention in South Korea for his role as the Army spokesman regarding the June 13, 2002 roadside accident in which a U.S. Army armored vehicle struck and killed two South Korean girls.”

    As far as I know the recent victim is out of the hospital now and at home but he’s gonna need more surgeries, mostly facial reconstructive in nature. He’s already had two surgeries and is going to need a complete facial reconstruction. Based on what I found out, there might be a good chance he has brain damage.Problem is, no one knows exactly what happened as he has no recollection of that night. There is probably an investigation underway but…

    Again officers getting killed, hit by buses and beaten by Koreans. Its obvious to me an officer battle buddy system needs to be put in place. You just cant have these people wandering around in the ville without a NCO for an escort

    “locals”? Maybe Command should make the whole area off-limits until the “locals” sort it out?

    Or maybe set up a third WO as bait with a group of plainclothes MPs as backup? Then stage a little drama and drop the offending “locals” off at a hospital in Taegu… two weeks later… :twisted:

    Or just make certain just because your a warrant officer this does not give you license to mouth off to the locals
