On on side of the coin, I was a former Corporal myself (and got out as such) and can look back on my past shenanigans (never anything to harm anyone or to take their property) to agree that this is pretty funny as I can picture this happening at that time.Nothing to discuss, really, this IS FUNNY!
This will be a pretty weak talking point, even for the Henoko fight. They didn't even choose to cover it today with more information from the police station as they probably figured it's the equivalent to a low-class/petty misdemeanor—he most likely would be released by now, even as a citizen, but I'm sure he's already in the hands of his command (with possibly one less stripe and having to not only redo chevrons but remove the stripes on trousers as well ).For sure he shouldn't have taken what didn't belong to him and it likely inconvenienced that worker quite a bit. Sorry guy!
