    Leave it to the Americans to ruin things over in Japan

    Good thing I'm not planning to be stationed in Okinawa anytime soon.

    A few quotes from the article from a Master Sergeant:




    ^ I thought that quote was kinda Bullshit because I hear that the Street Drifters over there flash their high beams to warn oncoming drifters of any accidents or spinouts from the drifters that had went through the corner prior.

    I also heard that the Police over in Japan are more leniant on Drifters than they are on Street Drag Racers.



    ^ Damnit! You guys ruined it all!!!!

    There are a bunch of other quotes I wanted to post, but i'll let you guys check out the article.




    Cliff Notes:
    1. Military Police over in Okinawa are impounding vehicles of US servicemen caught on hidden video during late-night Street Drifting.
    2. Military Police blowing it up to crazy proportions and are totally overreacting IMO

    Oh well. 1. They shouldn't have been making false insurance claims. 2. And drifting should be kept on the tracks and not on public streets. If an American had hurt any of the locals while drifting, all hell would have broken loose. Aren't tensions high between the two groups anyway because of some past reported rape incidents?

    Yes. The Japanese locals HATE having that military base there, probably it's more of the older population than the younger people. Also years ago, a serviceman was accused of raping a local girl. So anyway, the military police are very diligent in trying to keep the order and peace.
