THIS VIDEO shows a man in his 40s or 50s attack a 9-year-old Korean girl in an apartment elevator.

The man follows the little girl into the elevator, grabs her, and tries to drag her out. When the little girls resists, the asshole starts kicking and punching her. He then takes the elevator up to the third floor and tries to drag her out of the elevator by her hair. The little girl is stronger than the asshole realizes and he falls down in the process, but still manages to drag her out.

The stinking asshole gets her out of the elevation, but the little girl’s screams get the attention of a first-floor, female resident who starts coming up the stairs to the third floor, where the little girl is. The stinking, child-molesting asshole apparently hears the woman coming, calmly gets back on the elevator, goes back down to the first floor, and makes his escape.

Within ten minutes, the parents of the little girl call the police, who send out some lazy-ass, piece-of-shit cop to investigate. The lazy-ass, piece-of-shit cop takes the testimony of the parents and the neighbor, watches the CCTV video, and then goes back and reports “the next day” that it was “just a simple assault case” committed by a drunken men. Then the investigation stops.

However, the parents of the little girl and the neighbors get the video, make leaflets, and start looking for the lousy, stinking, child-molesting asshole on their own. The video gets on the Internet, Korean netizens get mad, and then three days after the little girl was attacked, Ilsan police come back to the apartment, get the video, and finally start looking for the guy.

After hearing about how the lazy-ass cops at the Ilsan Police Department handled the case, President Lee gets pissed, visits the police station, and gives the lazy-ass cops a piece of his mind. If it had been me, I would have put on the heaviest boot I could find, gone down to the police station, found the lazy-ass cop who decided the incident was not worth investigating, and kicked the asshole a new one. Then I would have had his lazy ass fired.

Nevertheless, I applaud President Lee for going to the Ilsan Police station in person to let the lazy assholes there know how lazy and incompetent they are.

I hope they find that stinking, child-molesting asshole and beat him to within an inch of his life, wait for him to recover, and start beating him again. Assholes like that need to be either put to death or put away for the rest of their lives. Those kinds of people are incorrigibly evil.

I am so pissed.

Here is what the Korea Times said about the incident:

Police Under Fire in Kidnap Attempt Case”

UPDATE 1

Police have arrested a 41-year-old man named Lee for the assault on the 9-year-old girl. He was arrested in a bath house in the Gangnam district of Seoul.

The asshole told police that he had been drinking and that the little girl gave him a look that he did not like, so he followed her and hit her. He said, “I’m not a bad man, but I attacked and hit her because I was angry.”

According to police, the asshole is a habitual rapist who had been sentenced to ten years in prison, but got out two years ago.

“Not a bad man”? BULLSHIT!

Also, a chief detective Bak and six other police officers associated with the mishandling of the investigation into the assault on the little girl have been relieved of duty. GOOD!

Thank you, President Lee.

UPDATE 2

The asshole has admitted to police that he had planned to sexually molest the little girl. Also, according to investigators, the asshole had previously received a 10-year prison sentence for a series of rapes involving minors. He got out of prison two years ago.

I wonder how much time he actually served and what he has been doing for the two years since getting out?

From the Winds of Jihad blog.

Muslim nations, the European Union and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on Friday expressed outrage at an anti-Islam film posted on the Internet by a ‘far-right’ Dutch lawmaker.

UN chief Ban Ki-Moon called Geert Wilders’ film “offensively anti-Islamic” while Iran and Bangladesh warned the film could cause grave consequences and Pakistan protested to the Dutch ambassador.

Snip –

“I condemn in the strongest terms the airing of Geert Wilders’ offensively anti-Islamic film,” the UN chief said in a statement. “There is no justification for hate speech or incitement to violence. The right of free speech is not at stake here.”

Why is it so hard for Secretary General Ban say that the only reason the right of free speech exists is because people might say or write things that others disagree with or consider offensive. Secretary General Ban only wants “free speech” for things that people already agree on – what kind of free speech is that?

By the way, if Geert Wilders is killed by Jihadi, will Secretary General Ban be taking some responsibility for encouraging violence with his denunciation?

As I posted about HERE, a Filipina Masseuse was found murdered on the Philippine island of Boracay on the morning of March 7, and a 44-year-old German national has been charged with the murder, though he denies it.

Now, two weeks later, a “conscience-stricken” Filipino fisherman has come forward to say he saw the German dragging the body of the woman “at the front beach in Yapak Village” at 2:45 a.m. on March 7. He said the German then left the scene aboard his motorcycle.

The Filipino fisherman said that he did not report the murder because he feared he would be blamed for it.

The German has been charged with rape and homicide. You can read the story HERE.

There are still some things about this case that smell fishy.

  1. First, it is hard for me to believe that the Filipino man would not have reported the murder at the time. And why didn’t he immediately come forward after he heard the the German had been arrested for it?
  2. Second, how could the Filipino man have recognized the German at night on a dark beach without being close enough for the German to see him?
  3. Third, the fisherman said the incident took place at 2:45 a.m., which seems like a pretty exact time. If the fisherman were really scared he would be accused of the crime and hurried off home, would he really have taken the time to look at his watch (if he had one) to make sure that the crime took place at 2:45? It would have been much more believeable for me if he had said “sometime between 2 and 3 a.m.”
  4. Forth, the fisherman said that after dragging the dead women onto the beach, the German got on his motorcycle and drove off, which suggests that the German brought the woman to the beach on his noisy motorcycle. Would the man really be driving around with a dead body draped over his motorcycle? And if the German had raped and killed the woman on the beach, why would he bother dragging the body after she was dead instead of just getting on his motorcycle and leaving right away? And if she were raped on the beach, wouldn’t someone have heard her screams?
  5. Fifth, the police described the eyewitness as a “breakthrough” in the case, which suggests that their case against the German was not as strong as they had previously claimed.
  6. Finally, the German was charged with “rape” and homocide, which should mean that if the German had raped the woman, the police should have DNA and other evidence to prove it, but I get the impression that they do not have that kind of evidence based on the fact that this eyewitness was described as a “breakthrough.” 

As I said before, I do not know if the German did it or not, but something smells fishy.

Right in my neighborhood, less than 10 minutes walk from where I live. I walk past there every day.

A random and unprovoked attack at Sydney’s World Square has left one teenager dead and another young man badly wounded, say police.

It began with an argument between two students and other young men in a hamburger restaurant and ended with the fatal stabbing being caught on surveillance cameras.

It is understood the argument began at the Hungry Jacks restaurant on the corner of Liverpool and George streets and involved two Korean students studying in Sydney and two other men.

The four men then moved up Liverpool Street until they were across the road from Central Local Court, where the two Korean men were stabbed.

Police say they found the two Koreans lying near each other, both suffering multiple stab wounds.

The 19-year-old was taken to St Vincents Hospital where he died a short time later. The other man, aged in his 20s, is in a serious condition at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, police say.

City Central police Commander Mark Murdoch said witnesses saw the alleged attackers get in a cab.

“The critical information that led to the arrest of the two men this morning was supplied by a [cab driver] and without that information it’s doubtful we would have arrested those people so quickly,” he said.

The cab driver contacted police minutes after the stabbing to tell police he had just dropped two men at Redfern train station and the two suspects were arrested at 1.17am.

About 20 security cameras had captured various moments of the incident and Mr Murdoch said the footage would form a large part of the investigation.

He would not confirm whether the attackers were suspected members of an Asian crime gang.

A “larger group” had been involved in the argument but only four people were involved in the actual attack, he said.

“World Square has proved problematic for us in the past, there has been a lot of attention paid to that area by police [and] it has reaped some benefit for us in recent times … until this morning.”

A number of items were found in the taxi, he said.

“People who engage in this type of behaviour care nothing for what surveillance may or may not be in the area. They have a point to prove,” he said.

“It’s clearly an idiotic, absolutely unbelievable and senseless attack that has occurred and robbed one man of his life.”

The attacked appeared to be completely unprovoked, he said.

It was not believed the victims knew their attackers, he said.

Something is going very, very wrong with Sydney these days. I see violent incidents almost all the time now. Even I was attacked on the street. Lets hope the murderers are found.

Calplus

I went to the shop today and found Calplus, a milky flavored drink. I tastes similar to a Japanese drink called Calpis, and the name is similar (the full names are “Calpis Water” and “Calplus Aqua”). Surely this is just a coincidence and and Korean maker Paldo has never heard of Calpis :).

You be the judge.

According to THIS KOREAN ARTICLE, a 29-year-old Filipino man, who has been illegally staying here in Korea, has confessed to the murder of a “13-year-old” (maybe 12 in Western age) middle school girl in Yangju. The man had supposedly planned only to rape the girl, who lived next door to a Filipino friend of his, but when the girl resisted, tried to run away, and then cursed him, he got angry and stabbed her with a knife.

According to police, at 7:47 p.m. on March 7th, the Filipino man knocked on the girl’s door after confirming that she was alone in the house. He then threatened her with a knife and took her to a nearby field where he killed her after attempting to rape her.

If the above story is true, then Korea needs to do the world a favor and get rid of the scumbag, along with any of the other scumbags that can be found who have been murdering children here in Korea recently. Someone who intentionally murders a child deserves a slow, painful death.

So angry

Something so incredibly awful has happened to me that I am angry beyond words. Since this looks like it is going to be a legal case (with me suing someone), I cannot comment on it at this time. I promise to let everyone know the full details as soon as I am able.

The following is my translation of a Korean article found HERE.

The Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KARI) has dismissed suspicions related to the replacement of Korea’s first astronaut, saying that the violation of duty was a personal mistake and not an intentional leaking of material.

At an emergency press conference on the 12th, the head of KARI’s Astronaut Development Unit, Choi Gi-hyeok, said, “Russian regulations allow for an astronaut to be replaced six hours before a flight.” He then went on to refute as false overseas press reports that said materials were copied or that there was separate intensive training.

Also, concerning the worry that the astronaut program would suffer a setback if there was a problem with Lee So-yeon, he stressed that they were cooperating to make sure that Ko San would be able to fly in the spacecraft in such a case.

However, it was revealed that Hang U-yeon realized that Mr. Ko San had mailed home restricted study materials only after receiving a notice from Russia, and that the Korean government decided on the official replacement only after Russia asked that the trainees be replaced.

I wonder if Lee So-yeon will mysteriously get sick just before her flight, causing Ko San to be the one to go up afterall?

Lee Cham (이참), formerly known as Lee Han-u (이한우), was born in Germany, but became a naturalized Korean citizen in 1986. He speaks Korean quite well, and made regular appearances on Korean TV for many years; however, now he wants to be an elected representative in the “Hanara” party.

I think it would be interesting if he were elected, but I wonder if he really has a chance?

Lee So-yeon (이소연) will be Korea’s first astronaut in space after replacing Go San (고산), the man originally scheduled to be Korea’s first astronaut to travel to space. Lee was originally training as a backup, but it seems  that she will now be replacing Mr. Go because he violated security procedures, which included the taking of restricted training materials outside the Russian space center.

I do not know why Mr. Go would take restricted training materials outside the space center, but a suspicious person might suspect espionage. Could that be the reason the Russians demanded that he be replaced?

Go San must be feeling like crap.
