US Navy Banned From Drinking in Japan


The US Navy has banned all its personnel stationed in Japan from drinking
after one of their number crashed into two Japanese cars
drunk-driving the wrong way down a highway during a moratorium on off-base drinking prompted by a US base worker’s murder of a 20-year-old Japanese girl.

21-year-old Petty Officer 2nd Class Aimee Mejia had been driving on the wrong side of the road before inevitably hitting two vehicles and injuring two of their occupants, being found to have a blood-alcohol level nearly six times higher than Japan’s legal limit.

That the incident occurred during a ban on off-base drinking imposed after 32-year-old
ex-US Marine and base worker Kenneth Franklin Shinzato (an African-American man who took the surname of his Japanese wife) raped and killed a 20-year-old Japanese girl, stuffing her body in a suitcase and dumping it in the jungle, has helped propel anti-American sentiment in Okinawa to incandescent levels.


By the time the authorities caught up with Shinzato, a contractor who lived near Kadena base with his wife and infant child, he had already attempted suicide via sleeping pills, but once in custody he confessed to dumping her body, and was arrested on charges of improperly disposing of a corpse, charges later upgraded to rape and murder.

The woman’s last LINE message to her boyfriend indicated she had gone for a walk, but eventually a police search based on Shinzato’s testimony would uncover her remains, having been reduced to near skeletal condition after a month in the tropical heat. She had been raped, stabbed and bludgeoned.

After their own personnel flagrantly violated their efforts to contain the outrage all this caused, the relatively drastic ban seems only to be a temporary response to the string of recent crimes caused by US forces stationed in Japan.

Naturally there is little faith that the country-wide confinement will do any good considering that incidents in past years had provoked similar curfews only to lead to brutal crimes regardless, the underlying problem of concentrating tens of thousands of America’s trained killers amongst a defenseless Japanese populace not being solved.

The ever vigilant protesters fed up with the US’s military presence in Okinawa have also taken to action as a result of the most recent atrocities, scheduling a rally for June 19th that they believe will have more attendees than the former 1995 protest made in response to the abduction and rape of a 12-year old girl.

The Japanese government also has plans to issue 100 more police officers and 20 more patrol cars to Okinawa to further aid in controlling the decades long American crime wave (or possibly just to keep protesters from interfering with the bases of their masters), although this too barely addresses the underlying issues.

    While I agree that this druken shitbag should be punished to the fullest possible extent (unfortunately the Navy stopped flogging long ago), it is racist to just assume that all hairy, barbarian American sailors are the same. Most are good people and professionals serving their country (and yours) while making sacrifices by being away from their homes and families.

    Whenever you have a large body of people there's always going to be a small number of malefactors and degenerates among them that do not reflect the integrity of the body as a whole.

    For all those saying you should expel all American servicemen from Japan, that's fine by me. Just don't forget to put out the doormats that says "Welcome" in Chinese.

    We're still waiting for Japan to apologize for all the women they raped during ww2. For the Baby bayoneting contests they had (Not making this up) for all of the civilians they murdered, and all of the POWs they executed, experimented on, and tortured.

    Yes, it's terrible that these two recent events happened. But NOBODY from Japan has the right to feel like they can bitch after all the horrendous stuff they've done and never once apologized for.

    At least the Americans are trying to do something about the bad people. Japan gave them awards and medals!

    All that was done by the "old government" with the mentality of "the Emperor wills it, so we are right". All that vanished after WWII when Japan transitioned from a military power, to an economic one. Korean and Chinese citizens are still mounting protests against the Japanese government demanding apologies and compensation (which they give so as to try and appease them), then they roll around and do it again.

    I lost a lot of respect for Americans after the 2011 Earthquake (I was there) and Facebook and Twitter was full of "it's God's revenge for Pearl Harbour!". It's time a lot of these people learned to let go.

    Still, I see this as a fitting punishment to the culprits. As a military way of saying "He's a bad image for us, so we all must punished fittingly" It's just the way military works.

    It's not racist at all. I saw all those drunk soldiers in Naha and they were truly frightening. I'm almost 180 cm tall and I prefered to cross the avenue, think about most of Japanese people are way smaller than me.

    Yeah, because Japan has had a problem dealing with the Chinese military before America came in...wait wasn't that the other way around?

    Maybe the US sticks around because they dont want the Japanese to come around and humiliate them again.

    Comment by Anonymous

    Haha, yeah. Yes, the Axis power force. They sure loved Hitler. They bombed a base with a preemptive strike and were retaliated against. They commanded their own men to Kamikaze or their civilians to drown themselves. Guess who also uses that tactic. Oh yeah, terrorists.

    They waved the white flag after two bombs. They're not allowed to have a military and they bow down and accept it. Even after all this time they still don't. Just their defense force.

    The US are hardly the ones who are humiliated.

    Americans can never be humiliated. They are by default shameless and lack humility.
    Also you should hide that pride of killing civilians. Most civilized countries frown on that kind of behavior.

    Welcome to war jackass, where people don't fight fair. If you seriously think that is bad then you shouldn't even be talking about it. War isn't about fighting honorably, it's about winning and surviving. If you have a problem with that, then that's your problem. The Japanese during WWII were far more nationalistic and willing to die for their country, their culture is founded upon loyalty, and I guarantee you that they would have pushed the US back. If 2 cities had to go in order to prevent the inevitable genocide that would have happened because the US would be taking over Japan instead of trying to just force their hand into surrendering, we might not be where we are today, because in terms of a ground war, Japan would have won that hands down.

    Two atomic bombs on top of 4 years to defeat a tiny backwards country that were using terrorist tactics.

    What other country needed to get nuked in order to surrender? Funny how you brush it off as just a couple bombs.

    And on top of it all the US got so butthurt they wouldn't let them have an army anymore because they didnt want to go through it all again. And they let the Germans have an army.

    But really the question is whether or not they would be fine if the US left. Not whether they could take on the US again, considering the chucklefucks that make up the US armed forces today, I'm willing to bet a modern day Tojo would be propping his balls in the oval office.

    Take a look at africa, then scandinavia. Granted Sweden is commiting racial suicide, but it's also going downhill, so there's that.

    A country's prosperity can be correlated with how non-black it is.

    For reference Japan's drinking limit for driving is .03 vs the US limit of .08. So 6 times Japan's limit is .18.

    I guess they don't enforce it much as every other Japanese saleryman would end up loosing their license though as the impairment caused by a BAC of .03 is not even out of the statistical noise floor.
    It usually is almost always those who are well above the US limit that end up causing accidents.

    Not banned from drinking, banned from being near public places without Japanese supervisor or watchdog. Restrictions on their actions, so citizens can feel a little safe about it (maybe or kick them out the island).

    Not sure about the Japanese military. However the rate of crimes, both major and misdemeanors are way lower among the U.S military versus the local populace. Like everyone in the world they like to blame their problems on an easily identifiable other.

    As an American you should realize that all US military members are held to a much higher standard than regular civilians. Yes there will always be bad apples, however the punishments for their actions are usually far more severe. Military members also get way more publicity every time someone does something stupid, so it's more common for it to end up on the news.

    So next time think before you open your mouth.

    Let's just explore the meaning of racism shall we? Just so we can all be on the same page here.

    Racism: The prejudicial labelling of a populace based on their ethnic origin, attributing certain factors, either physical or behavioural, to a member of that race using their image as an identifier.

    Prejudice is the pre judgement of one's character before getting to know the facts.

    Exemplar gratis - Just look at those facts! Look at them!

    While I'm the first to always say "proximity does not equal causality" I also do not like to believe in coincidences.

    sweden and germany have accepted african immigrants rape and violent crime have skyrocketed. sweden is now just behind south africa in rapes. blacks in america also commit violent crimes rape,theft,and murder disproportionately to thier population size. in their natural state in african countries they kill,and murder each other. just look at darfur,and rwanda for proof of the natural and violent nature of these subhumans. the world would be better off without them.

    It IS racist to use a racist slur, however, and it IS racist to brand an entire race as being somehow bad or evil (that's by definition what racism is), so stick your racism up your own ass, with walnuts.

    Also a lot of these facts are unverified horseshit, so.
