Hardpan Curmudgeon SASS #8967 Posted December 22, 2022 Share Posted December 22, 2022 Interesting and tragic story: Navy Lieutenant Ridge Alkonis has been jailed in Japan for the deaths of two Japanese citizens resultant of an automobile accident. Evidently, he had previously undiagnosed altitude sickness and lost consciousness driving down Mt Fuji, resulting in the unfortunate crash. Despite medical determination of the cause, he has been convicted and sentenced to three years in prison. Now, the kicker: the Department of Defense has decided to cut off his pay and his family's benefits. Mebbe he shoulda played basketball instead of serving in the Navy. https://www.foxnews.com/us/navy-lieutenant-sentenced-japan-causes-outcry-family-lawmakers Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
