I took a gander at all them pictures and that USFK looks like it is being run like a second hand operation. Who’s in charge of that there clown show? First you got yourself a single guard in frumpy looking uniform with guilty looking posture so it’s real hard to tell if he is the criminal or not when I first saw it. Then you notice the real criminal cowering back there behind him and in some pictures he’s holding on to that guard’s love handles with a two handed death grip. It looks somewhere between childish and homo. Them professional Korean criminals always stand between two guys in fine looking suits with they head down or covered. If that USFK was run right everybody would be wearing them dress uniforms and there would be two sharp looking MP fellows on either side of that guy holding his elbows just to show them Koreans that this was being taken seriously instead of looking like everybody done showed up hung over as an afterthought.
Then you got this Lopez fellows wife. She done showed up in them pictures wearing tight skank jeans and some of them stoner boots with an untucked shirt and a purse that looks like something you’d use to carry a dime bag of reefer and too much eyeliner back about 1984. Take a gander at them jeans and you just know they got more camel toe than all of Saudi Arabia. Im going to put a link to the picture cause it is just too unbelievable that USFK wouldnt spend no 5 minutes coaching these dummies on how to put on a good appearance and not shame the whole operation.
That there is what Korea done saw of USFK and American soldiers. That’s downright shameful. Somebody at USFK needs to get their head out of their backside or they is going to let this whole deal slip away from them. These pictures is downright disrespectful to them Koreans.
Turning over criminals isn’t enough. SOFA needs to be revised.
Once an idiot commit crime, he or she needs to be turned over immediately to the Korean authority. Koreans need to preserve the evidence but in this case, the guy who was shot removed the bullet that was lodged in his body. I believe the U.S. Doctor inside the U.S. base in Seoul aided in destruction of evidence. The U.S. presence should be reduced in Korea. There are too many idiot GIs running around in Seoul – driving – on influence of narcotics / alcohol.
SOFA is unfair and it needs to be fixed to control American GI crimes.
From your description I expected to be disgusted but I wasn’t. Cameltoe, how do you see that from a side hip view and her boots are what Korean women are wearing. If you wore your best duds I doubt you’d look any better. Nonetheless, I’m waiting for the childless PGH to kick out the U.S. military and make Korean men man up once and for all.
I believe it was already stated that 121 would turn over the bullet and I have every reason to think they will. That’s a fair enough chain of evidence I would think. The ballistics will tell the tale, even though it doesn’t appear necessary – all things considered.
I’ll bet the command is going to let the Koreans have this one. The command is going to wash their hands of these three and let them be made an example of. I think it is appropriate and there is no grey area here. These 3 ran amok, let the Koreans have them. Though, I’d bet the military justice system would hand them more severe penalties than the Korean justice system will. SOFA will not come into play on this one.
Well there Mr Tbone I reckon a lot of guys that aint got much experience with the ladies dont see that cameltoe coming way off. I will keep my eye out for a front picture that gets up in there.
I reckon you may be right about me not looking any better if I was wearing my sunday finest but of course I aint the one appearing on national news to be grilled by the police after I done begged them to shoot at me. I also aint the one representing the military who in their own self interest shouldnt allow their soldiers to look like no rumkins when everybody knew beforehand that a couple tens of millions of angry Koreans was going to see them photos and videos. So while you can poke fun at me it dont change what happened. My best duds just aint that important to this here situation. Now you got an opinion on their dress and behavior or is you just talking out you backside?
By the way this here picture sure starts looking like it could be cameltoe. Heck them style bluejeans was built for cameltoe. It takes a much thinner gal not to get automatic cameltoe in them jeans.
US soldiers should never be turned over to the Koreans, thats liek the Romans handing over their troops. Korea only exist out of US generosity. if they want juristiction, they should defend their own country and answer for their own crimes rather than pay off the other family.
Bobby Ray has made excellent and important points about the lack of professionalism USFK has demonstrated in presenting the suspects to both the police and the Korean public.
Regretfully, nobody has discussed this even though there has been a great deal of effort debating nonsensical points with a newly resurgent Tom.
As military members, associated civilians and Westerners in general, the perceptions of Korean citizens are important and the professionalism with which USFK conducts themselves influences these perceptions.
It would be nice to see more attention paid to important issues that affect us all rather than Tom’s non-issues which affect nobody.
@6- Excellent comment. You would think the USFK command would have made sure that the soldiers were in Class A uniforms and be surrounded by MPs bringing them into questioning as you suggested that I have seen done in the past.
Yea, huge screw-up on USFK PAO’s part in handling this one. They look like complete freaking slobs.
I hate to agree with Tom because he’s a moron, but he’s actually right, they DO look like common hoodlums and that’s *exactly* how Koreans are going to perceive them.
Why is she not in some sort of business suite of business casual attire?
Why the HELL is he not in Class A’s/service dress uniform? In ANY branch of the military, any time you are getting your pee-pee slapped OR even just “telling your side of the story” to an official party it’s ALWAYS in a service (or equivalent) uniform. The hell were they thinking?
Good heavens if you done thought that Korean media couldn’t get themselves a worse picture of that clown and that big colored fellow that is always leading him around by the hand well you had better think again. Them boys shouldn’t even be allowed in public without their Sunday finest on till this here deal blows over.
Somewhere along the way I noticed the driver’s window on that car was either shot out or rolled down in the middle of winter. Well it turns out they was both wrong. When they was all trying to drive away in the beginning the police broke it so them soldiers was freezing their backsides of during that high speed chase. It looks like it was the girl who did the bb gun shooting and them two boys is blaming each other for who was driving but the girls story matches the private instead of her husband.
I was thinking about all this and it’s looking like they is all pretty much minor crimes except maybe using the car against the police. Why I bet there ain’t more than a fine for all of them. That aint no good in the long run cause you can bet this will be used as evidence for soldiers getting off light when they do crimes in Korea.
Them Korean police is claiming the bullet done ricocheted off the ground and hit that soldier. I didn’t see no broken window except that missing side window and you can’t get no bullet to ricochet if you is standing next to a car and getting hit by it. I’m thinking there might be a wee bit more to this here story.
The only thing real clear so far is them soldiers is dummies and looking how they been managed there are a whole bunch of dummies running that USFK show all the way to the top so maybe it ain’t all their fault.
I just saw me a better picture of that there car and it looks like there is some kind of disruption on the drivers side windshield bout where you would expect. If I can see me a better picture I will figure this thing out right quick.
#25, I think they were former drive by shooting gangsta’s from south Chicago, before they join the US army, to be honest with ya.
It’s funny reading all the comments from Americans in Korea, writing on the internet boards. I would guestimate about 50% of them believe the GI criminals by making excuses for them. They trust the criminals more because they are Americans. I bet if they changed their story (they initially lied that they were shot by Arabs) and said he was shot by Korean police for nothing, and give other false testimonies, most of the Americans here are ready to believe their story. They badly want to believe the story, and take American’s honor off the hook.
GI “L” just admitted that he was the driver when he ran down the cop.
The GI “D” who was hit by the bullet was one of the passengers. GI “L” and GI “D” had both denied that they were the driver, as they both accused each other being the driver. This just shows you the flaw in the common belief in Rokdrop, that American GI’s don’t lie.
