Regarding the Nov. 4 article “Crimes linked to U.S. forces spur calls for (Status of Forces Agreement) revision“: Here’s a novel idea — put all establishments that serve alcohol off limits to U.S. service personnel as well as civilian employees of the U.S. government.
Any U.S. personnel found in an establishment serving alcohol would be subject to apprehension by either military police or Japanese law enforcement officers. Any establishment selling alcoholic beverages to U.S. personnel would be subject to having their license to sell alcohol canceled. Same for stores selling bottled alcoholic beverages. They should be off limits to U.S. service personnel and civilian employees of the military.
