Yakuza shoots Marine for WHAT?

"Hiroshima yakuza owns up to shooting Marine"

HIROSHIMA -- A man has been arrested after giving himself up to the police and admitting to gunning down United States Marine Corps Sgt. Eric Heinz because he walked in front of his car, police said Wednesday.

Kazuyuki Matsumoto, a one-time member of a yakuza gang, was arrested for breaking the Firearms and Swords Control Law. Matsumoto, 37, of Hiroshima, admits to the allegations.

"He walked in front of my car, so I thought I'd teach him a lesson," Matsumoto told the police.

Matsumoto also admitted to pointing his gun at another Marine and threatening to shoot him.

Matsumoto was arrested on a technicality, as he turned up at Hiroshima Higashi Police Station with an unlicensed pistol, but police have launched an attempted murder inquiry in connection with the Sunday shooting and he may face further, more serious charges.

Heinz was shot as he and two fellow Marines from nearby USMC Iwakuni Air Station walked through Hiroshima early Sunday. He was seriously injured, but is expected to recover from his wounds.

Heinz was shot from a moving car. The car stopped soon after the Marine slumped to the ground and the driver thrust his gun at the face of another Marine and threatened to shoot again, before getting back into the vehicle and driving off.

Witnesses reported the shooting to the police, providing them with the license number of the car from where the shots were fired. Police were still looking for Matsumoto when he turned up at Hiroshima Higashi Police Station on Tuesday night, gave them a revolver he said had been used in the shooting and told officers he handed himself in because he did not think he would be able to escape with investigators closing in on him. The investigation continues. (Mainichi and wire reports, Japan, Oct. 29, 2003)

Sorry, though. Ah didn't kill any kitties, did ah?

Besides, does it being a year old make it any less heinous?

WHAT????

And I've been wearing this stupid "W" button all this time!?!?


Cut me some slack. I found the story linked from a page on another board. Here's the link I was reading when I saw the shooting story off in the left column: Driver wins settlement...

And if you're interested in seeing a NASTY auto racing crash video, check this out (it's the Ota crash described in the story above): WOW!

Of course, you've probably all seen that, too...?

Well, as a matter of fact, yes. That was posted up here a while back. Some thought the 355 was an Elise. There was also a follow up vid showing the carnage and the Ferrari driver walking out.
