What Are Korean Netizens Saying About the Pellet Gun Bandits?

The story about the US soldiers accused of shooting pellets at civilians in Itaewon and then ending in a high speed chase and shooting has gotten plenty of media attention. Besides media attention the incident has also gotten plenty of attention online as well. Over at KoreanBang they have translated a number of Daum comments of what Korean netizens have had to say about the crime:

Good job policemen. You reacted strongly and shot live ammunition~


Way to go police!

연필 한자루:

Which policeman did this? That’s one committed police officer~^^


Just try and discipline that police officer for shooting live ammunition, I dare you!!


If the crime is committed in our country then it should be handled by our courts~


Nice job police


Every once in a while the police do something right.


Clap, clap! Fire bullets into those crazy bastard American soldiers


Hoooray to the ROK police! The policeman can be promoted even by two ranks. If he isn’t promoted, it will undermine the police’s morale. The taxi driver who showed a righteous civic spirit should be awarded and compensated. As they say ‘one rotten apple spoils the barrel’, these troublemakers make the USFK and the US look bad. Aigoo, I guess the USFK commander will bow to apologize soon…


You can read a lot more at the link, but most of the comments were very supportive of the policeman and the taxi driver.

    Koreans are really pissed for sure. You kind of wonder what attitude those soldiers had about their hosts. Even now, they claim they didn’t shoot the BB gun. I know they are going to be handed a slap in the wrist sentence and get off this shit scot-free. If I were the police officer who shot the phucker, I would have aimed at his head or heart and take him out.

    Comments left by 13 year-olds is hardly worthy of attention.

    #1 Uhh yeah, ok that happened.

    Anyhoo no one should be suprised at the public sentiment and anyone wanting to try and come up with some kind of defense for these criminals will be hard pressed to come with something. Hopefully USFK will continue to work with the ROK do what it needs to get these people into jail.

    Hell, I’m supportive of the policeman and the taxi driver.

    What do you all think the odds are that the taxi driver is one of those pseudo volunteer police helpers which sometimes direct traffic? – Not that it matters.

    Netizens make noise but they are usually 11 year olds with nothing better to do. Their greatest achievements in life are getting to level 2 of some stupid video game.

    BTW, doesn’t Koreabang write for the Korea Times? Or was that someone else?

    I like the hypocritical comment about one rotten apple spoils the whole barrel.

    I guess we can look at the Korean taxi driver who had AIDS and had sex with passengers all over Chechon to spread the disease or the Korea policeman who shot Darren Rossi in the leg and Virginia Tech shooter Cho Seung-hui as typical of Korean cab drivers, cops, and exchange students.

    CurfewViolator, you’re not missing anything. The write up and the video are both Hangul secure.

    It is basically a greatest hits retrospective of various GI misconduct.

    Interesting, so does this mean I can call the Korean Cops every time I have to dodge BB Gun Pellets that are shot at me and my kids when I go to our apartments playground. Are they going to stop selling the BB Gun Pellets at EMart that my kids have been shot at multiple times by unattended Korean Kids?

    I am not interested in anything Korean netizens have to say about anything. Those are some of the meanest bastards on the planet.

    As well as a recent case where 3 soldiers stole some korean girl’s credit card and phone

    I don’t know if Koreans are the meanest bastards on the planet. I do believe they are some of the stupidest people on the planet. They continue to insist that their culture is superior. Try telling that to the horrendous number of people who kill themselves in Korea. The average Korean seems to be very unhappy about their lot in life. They don’t have the right job, they should be the boss. They can’t afford the Gangnam apt. They have to pay bribery to get anything done. Yes, Korea has a great culture the rest of the world should emulate. Fortunately, nobody really cares. If you want respect, you earn it. Korea thinks they should get respect, because they are Koreans .. Ya right. They are just a bunch of little people, who insist on staying like they are, can’t seem to learn to move on. Great place – NOT

    Netizens: I hate you USA. USA = KKK. Sorry, now I must go to Starbucks to meet my English lesson study group so I can get into college in USA. TTYL
