The U.S. Military held a “Day of Reflection” for troops in Japan today, to emphasize professionalism and core military values in light of allegations that two U.S. servicemen have committed sexual assaults on the island of Okinawa. The “Day” comes amidst a flurry of new accusations that 38-year-old marine Tyrone Luther Hadnott raped a 14-year-old Japanese girl earlier this week.
Collective reports around the globe state that Hadnott vehemently denies raping the girl, though he admits to forcing her down and kissing her.
Here’s the thing. We’d be glad to know that Hadnott had the wherewithal to avoid violating the poor victim’s privates, but that’s burying the headline: SHE’S A 14-YEAR OLD GIRL, AND FORCING ROMANTIC ADVANCES ON HER IS WRONG. This shit isn’t just disgraceful, it’s downright despicable.
