The sailor suspected of murdering a cab driver has reportedly (or is rumored to have) kinda confessed to the crime to friends. So far, there has been no confirmation that he has confessed to military investigators. The Japanese police are expected to question him soon.

If he did kill the cab driver, let's hope he enjoys the rest of his life in prison, which he would very much deserve.

I have no evidence but am just speculating: Some branches of the military have had to reduce recruiting standards because most Americans are unwilling to take a personal risk in the fight in Iraq or Afghanistan. Could this be having a negative effect? We can bet it ain't having an overall positive effect.

There will always be a certain number of criminals who get into the military, but there is a price to pay when standards are lowered in any field.

Story here.
