US Forces “Evil Neighbors” After Toy Gun Shot

Date Posted: 2001-03-30

A US Marine who fired a toy gun at the car of two pizza delivery men at Camp Courtney last week has apologized to them. The Marine had pointed an authentic looking gun at the car and fired a plastic projectile which hit the rear window.

On Friday the marine visited the pizza restaurant where the men worked, accompanied by senior officers and a commander. The marine told the two 25 year old restaurant workers that he had done something really disgraceful and had been reflecting on himself. The marine looked very tense throughout the encounter.

One of the civilians said “I kept quiet. From what I saw of the apology, he seemed to be very much into self-examination. I just hope nothing like this happens again.”

The All Japan Garrison Forces Labor Union filed a protest about the incident last Thursday with the Naha Regional Defense Facilities Administration Bureau, calling it “vicious and dangerous”.

Gushikawa City Assembly held an extraordinary session on Monday and produced a written protest and statement, a first for the assembly. The statement said “It is obvious that people in the US forces have a lack of human feelings in their discriminatory attitudes and acts. They are already evil neighbors.”
