Rape - - Again!!

This is coolbert:

From the Chicago Tribune of today also:

This was a new one on me:

“Marine Trials: The U.S. military says it will court martial four U.S. Marines in Japan for the alleged rape of a Japanese woman. Master Gunnery Sgt. John Cordero of the U.S. Marine Corps Air Station in Iwakuni in southern Japan said that the courts – martial are to be held beginning next month. The four Marines are accused of an attack on a 19-year-old woman in October, were charged by the Military in December.”

The one Marine was let go just the other day. Had been accused of raping a 14-years-old girl, but charges were dropped.

Here, four other Marines are also accused of rape. AND ARE GOING ON TRIAL!! Very serious stuff!!

That Marine unit is slated to be moved from Okinawa to Guam - - either this year - - or next. NO WONDER the folks on Guam have a degree of trepidation.
