My old roommate, and still a good friend of mine, was walking down an alley last weekend, on his way home. He was hit in the back of the head. When he came to, he was being dragged down the street, a good distance from where he was. He looked up to see some Koreans trying to drag him into an open garage in a place we call second market. He started to struggle so they started kicking and beating him again. A Korean he recognized, a man that works at a local cyber cafe near the base, runs across the street and says something to the men in Hangul. My friend gets up and runs into the street. As he's escaping he notices a video camera pointed directly at the scene.

He spent the night in the hospital. Criminal investigations said there was nothing on the video tape. I carry a butterfly knife.
