This is disturbing for a couple of reasons, at least . . .

Unfortunately for the vet, it sounds like he got what he deserved.

When I was a teen I would have to say i would have done the same thing had I caught a guy spray painting graffiti on my car. You have to wonder what was going thru that guys head. Isn't he a little to old to be doing stupid shit like that?

If you read what the message that the guy posted on you tube it says the vet put his hands om him first.

"I caught him in the act of painting my evo, he spit on me, called me a gook, and put his hands on me....this is the end result. If you listen closely No direct threats were made towards him. "

Hell either way, the guy got what he deserved. He may be a war vet but he is ignorant to do something like that.

The guys Japanese car was probably built in America by American workers. He is driving a Chevy truck which was probably built in Mexico.

The kid will likely go to jail........but the vet deserves what he got, the kid doesn't.

I got to interview the gentleman who was charged with Destruction of Property among his other charges, here is what he had to say;


"I heard on the news that the day was Pearl Harbor Day and when I was in school, me and my friends would get angry that the Japs had gotten in their planes and attacked Pearl Harbor and killed all the soldiers, I mean, what did any of them do to the Japanese, you know what I mean?"

"So when I had seen it on the news that it was the anniversary and all, I thought I'd go and find one of them Jap-cars and to let them know that by them buying their cars that they were on the Japanese side and that just ain't right. I had some spray paint laying around so when I saw this Japanese looking kid get out of a Japanese car, well, I waited until he was gone and sprayed the date on the side of his car, show him some payback for what his ancestors did to those guys and gals they showed on tv who died in Pearl Harbor."

"He saw me do it but I called him a gook because that is what he is and then I shoved him because he was in my face for what I did."

"I soft of feel bad and apoligized afterwards but really, if I didn't get caught, he had what was coming to him. Buying a Japanese car after what they did on Pearl Harbor Day."

well after that the shove sounds like it became self defense, wonder if they will charge the old man for a hate crime too?

I call BS on that one. It comes down to accountability. If you're gonna be stupid, you better be tough.

So if someone walks up to me and punches me in the nose, I just just cry and then call the police?

Face it the vet was pretty ignorant. What if the guy owning the car had Japanese American grandparents living in California at the outset of WWII who were put into internment camps by the US Government? What did they do to deserve being put in our concentration camps? Those people lost everything, based soley on the fact that they USED to live in Japan and had moved to the US. They may have started it, but there were atrocities on both sides.

I hope that vet learned a valuable lesson. Never "F" with another man's vehicle. If the vet hadn't admitted he started the physical attack then the other guy would be in jail. That vet doing stupid crap like that makes other soldiers look like dumba$$ jarheads. You know the ones that end up in the military because they are too stupid to hold a job pumping gas. He deserves 1 more of those beatings for dishonoring others that are or have served with honor, respect and courage.

If the guy didn't get caught, most would probably have said that it was just some punk kids and NOT what is supposed to be grown up, alleged-Veteran of the US Armed Forces.

I wonder if they guy is even a Veteran.
