Servicemember Wins Appeal of Fine from the Uijongbu Subway Incident

The US soldier who contested the fine he received for his involvement in the Uijongbu subway incident has been found not guilty. I was surprised when I first heard this but then I read the article that showed the Korean accuser reversed his story:

The footage showed the group of soldiers standing on the subway platform after the altercation. Roedl stood several feet away from the subway door while another soldier appeared to briefly step inside and push a South Korean man who was arguing with and waving at them.
The man, Lee Jeong-Seob, testified during the Oct. 17 hearing that he had been injured in the incident. But after watching the footage, he said Roedl did not strike him and he did not remember who did.
The court spokesman said a statement Lee made to police after the incident was the central piece of evidence implicating Roedl. Another soldier told officials that Roedl was not involved in the altercation with Lee. [Stars and Stripes]

Roedl is lucky the Korean man reversed his story and rightfully had his fine rescinded. I do wonder if he has now opened himself up to UCMJ action for what happened on the subway?

    Any time you get into an altercation with a Korean, the Korean will lie about what happened. And even if it doesn’t make sense, the police will believe him, not you, the waegookin, the alien. Plus, all the good Korean citizens will also lie about what happened, even if they have no relationship to the Korean you got in the altercation with.
    Thou shalt not bear false witness.

    I wonder if the soldier got smart and paid the good Korean citizen a little money under the table… Or perhaps it is what it is.

    As far as UCMJ action, punished for what? He was found not guilty by the Koreans so what should he be punished for?

    Leon aren’t you tracking that this type of shyt behavior is infectious? Those buttcrack showing over their underwear and low-rider jeans felt entitled NAY empowered to bring this anarchy to the tranquil setting of line #1.

    Forget that there was no law broken, USFK cannot allow this recent fad of tolerance and diversity which has given the idea that all attitudes and behaviors are equally valid has done a large disservice to those who would be better off to escape the crippling effects of their destructive culture.

    By allowing this appearance and behavior, leadership is demonstrating this to be an acceptable attitude and action within the ranks of a volunteer force… which negatively affects other areas of good order and discipline.

    Imitation is the best form of flattery… though ridicule-through-imitation, not so much.

    Just for fun, let’s think back to all the troubles soldiers have gotten into over the last few years and see if we can recall if their appearance and attitude was professional or if it involved less professional clothing and attitudes.

    Is there any relationship between dress and behavior?

    Nobody ever assaulted anyone downtown while in Class A’s (now ASUs). If you want to go on liberty down to the ville, class A’s that will keep everyone in line.

    Yes, I believe there is a relationship between dress and behavior. However, I really don’t think we have to put everyone in Class A’s….

    ChickenHead @ #5 You know darn well I was just clowning.

    You know paying any mind to the clothes the SM’es who got into trouble were wearing is about as usefull as paying mind to what color they were.

    Why you keep bringing up attitudes and behavior when it was clear from the start my beef was about the Army telling citizens how to dress is beyond me; points for trying though. ;)

    FlyingSword @ #6: Going on “liberty” in your dress uniform? When did you graduate highschool, 1933?

    It’s called 합의금 in Korean and it doesn’t have to be an under the table thing. In fact, it’s perfectly acceptable in Korean society to slide a white envelope across the table, say your pleasantries, and then walk away.

    Tacky, tacky, tacky. Tacky people in tacky clothes. If you go to a wedding, you are expected to give an envelope of cash. Guys in white cloves will count it at the wedding. No class Koreans.

    Something caused the testimony to change. It was probably money but who knows? It was ballsy, but maybe not wise to push it this far in court. He was lucky, this time.

    He’s obviously innocent. He wasn’t wearing a hoodie.

    All koreans lie when it is beneficial for them to do so. It is beneficial to see other foreigners suffer due to their evil nature.

    Huge props to Roedl for showing courage and honour in going against the corrupt Korean system. This is a clear case of Koreans failing at the scamming ways and should get more coverage.

    Koreans love their schadenfreude.
