Two Unarmed Men Mug 3 Marines, Mayor Wonders How

Kevin Killeen

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – In the midst of Marine Week with tanks, guns, and heavy weapons parked on lawns all over downtown, the Mayor is wondering how two unarmed prowlers out-fought and robbed three Marines on the street.

Police report that two Marines in their early 20s were walking near the Soldier’s Memorial downtown around 2:30 Monday morning, when two suspects in their 20s approached. According to the police report, the suspects tried to sell the Marines jewelry and then an argument led to a fight.

Police say one of the suspects punched a Marine. Another suspect reportedly took a pocket knife from the other Marine and poked him with it, causing a minor cut. The Marines told police the suspects took one of their wallets and ran away.

Police say a third Marine was also present, but was not fully involved in the fight.

“We take this story at face value and we’re going to investigate it,” said Police Chief Dan Isom.

In the hallways of police headquarters, some police officials were struggling to understand the incident, saying it didn’t sound right.

Even Mayor Francis Slay reacted to the news with skepticism, wondering how three Marines, one of whom was carrying a knife, would lose their knife and a wallet to two un-armed men.

“They were in an altered state because they had a fair amount to drink and it was 2:30 in the morning,” Slay said. “The Marines are great to St. Louis and certainly this is not indicative of Marine Week.”

But a Marine spokesman shed more light on the mugging, suggesting that the Marines turned the other cheek to avoid violence.

“Marines have been given rules of engagement not to engage in any violence except to protect their lives,” said Marine Spokeswoman Capt Kate Vanden Bossche.

When asked if the Marines have essentially been told to hand over their wallets in St. Louis, rather than fight to protect their property, Vanden Bossche said: “If someone is in such dire need that they need to rob someone,  I don’t think that’s a fight Marines need to get into.”

A Marine press release on the attack indicates how the fight ended: “After a brief altercation, the parties were separated with the help of the third Marine and police were contacted. The Marines relinquished their wallets and both assailants fled the scene.”

        There are a lot of unathletic woosies in the Marines. Having been one for five years I choked out way to many Marines that didn’t know how to fight to save their lives. MCMAP isn’t utilized enough. should be done a few times a week.

      “If someone is in such dire need that they need to rob someone, I don’t think that’s a fight Marines need to get into.”
      How did they know they “NEED” to rob someone, sheesh, the pussification of the USA continues.

        You sound just like an arrogant pilot. I would say you are or are a wannabe. Look when you are given orders not to respond, you do not respond or your career is over. To follow such a bulls**t order takes discipline, something I’m sure you know nothing about.

      • Stan Kinder

        Exactly. What they “NEED” is a boot in their a$$.

      • Snaproll

        After reading this I had to laugh. I had just watched avideo where two female srore clerks beat up and ran off an armed robber. I guess the Marines are getting a little desparate in who they recruit these days.

      • Ofra

        What a moronic statement from someone hiding behind their computer!

    • Melvin

      Being a retired Marine, we are constantly, constantly reminded, and especially with a dog and pony show somewhere, “Do not, and I repeat, do not mess with the locals no matter how obnoxious they are, just smile and say yes sir, no ma’am.”
      Lets say that the Marines defended themselves and beat the muggers within an inch of their lives. Newspapers, CNN, ABS, CBS, and a crying Shepard Smith on FOX, “United States Marines maul, and terrorize locals at an event to bring locals and the Armed Services closer.”
      We’re darned if we do and darned if we don’t

      • westfsu

        I think you have Fox confused with CNN or MSNBC.

      • Crystal

        Agreed Melvin. Also, could you imagine the military punishment if they did give those hoodlums what they deserved?! Yikes.

      • GS

        Melvin, if anything Shepard Smith would make a wisecrack joke about the delinquents getting their butts kicked by the Marines. As a Chief, I can honestly say that there’s very little on Fox that I see derogatory toward military.

      • Lonniie

        As I learned in boot camp pack your wallet but if its lost or stolen who cares?
        Your money is safely tucked away in your boot anyway.

      • Matt

        As a Soldier I agree with Melvin. and this is a very situational scenario. Were the Marines in uniform? That is a big factor, there are certain things you just don’t do in uniform and getting in a physical altercation with American citizens is one of them. However they do retain the right to protect themselves and each other. What disturbs me though is that the third Marine was not involved and allowed this to happen. He wasn’t really looking out for his fellow Marines.

      • They got beat up...accept it

        Were they in uniform? Drunk and wandering the streets at o-dark-hundred? I think too much concern about trying to justify them taking a beating rather than admit this one, they lost and it looks bad. Oh, and in my 20+ years of service I never once heard any brief on standards of conduct at events like this (or anything remotely similar) as “Rules Of Engagement.” ROE, like LOAC and LOW are for combat zones. Yeah, she said it, but I think maybe PA is scrambling to try to not look clownish here. Understandable, but inexcusable.

      • Murdrcycle

        In my 8 years, we got a breifing on rules of conduct at every such event.

      • Andy Vasquez

        Exactly, if the Marines (in their drunken state) hurt these two bottom-feeding, low-life never will amount to anything but a statistic of “products of their environment” thug BUMS, the story would have been “Marines terrorizes the downtown streets of St. Louis.” Just like the some in media disgracefully stated “Jarhead Jeers Halladay, Jokes about Murder” for an off the wall comment about how the Cardinals could defeat Phillies Ace, with a single round from an M1A1 Abrams tank.
        I hope these two losers run into someone that will not hold back and handle them appropriately

      • captain america

        Well gee, next time I;m a little short I’ll just mug me a marine.

      • Tony Magorno

        Melvin is spot on. I have a childhood friend in jail because he defended himself and the mugger died. My friend was unarmed attacked by an armed assailant. The jury and judge decided that because he was Marine, he should have rolled over because he is a “weapon”. He was a secretary for cryin out loud. He was trained like all Marines, but at the end of the day he was a secretary. Either way, he defended himself and was sent to prison for it. Try bringing the laws back in favor of the victims and then let the Marines have a hey day.

      • onememphisdude

        They were ORDERED not to fight! They complied with said order. Next week,when this is no longer a story, they will still be on active duty payroll. Smart move. Walking around a strange city at 2am..inebriated. Dumb move…especially today. Guys, if you’re gonna drink, do it safely. Take a cab home. Save the tourism for daylight hours.

    • Taro

      Imagine what would have happened if three white Marine reservists from Indiana had beat the snot out of two unarmed black men in St. Louis. The usual liberal pundits would be screaming about how the Marine Corps is a front for the KKK. Nobody would recall that the unarmed criminals had stolen a knife and turned the altercation into an armed robbery. Even the headline to this article is wrong. There is no way these three guys could have won no matter what they did. It is indeed a land of liberal lunatics.

      P.S. News for the former mayor: St. Louis has a serious crime problem. Pretending otherwise isn’t going to solve it. Pretending doesn’t work for Chicago or D.C., and it isn’t going to work for St. Louis.

    • Lance Cordill

      In 2011, no one should be suprised. This is just the culture of the modern day. In 1985, things were a bit different. As an active Marine, while on “liberty” in the South Korean port city of Pohang, I disobeyed a direct order, left my ship (USS Ogden) without a ‘battle buddy’ and proceeded to get mugged by four other Marines from another ship (USS Cayuga) over access to my greasy order of French Fries. The incident itself was rather unremarkable, except that I happen to be white and my foilents were black. To be exact: “I WAS IN THE WRONG FOR DISOBEYING A DIRECT ORDER” and incurred mischief which might otherwise have been avoided. To be exact, my chain of command in the USMC and the US Navy chose not to allow me the ability to prosecute these four other Marines strictly because they were black. They “didn’t want to raise the spector of a racial incident havig taken place in a foreign country involving US military personnel.”. Not suprising, considering the modern culture of the day. The lesson learned? As we all travel on this great proverbial ship of life, there are always going to be double standards assigned to us all. As the ship’s captain’s billet is already taken, are you (or I) going to be one who is doing the steering? Or, are you (or I) going to be a passenger just taggging along for the ride?

      • Gary Nelson Harper

        This comment is right on the money. Well thought out and from the heart. Education is not wisdom.

    • Chip

      Leave it to a liberal mayor to conclude that their response is not indicative of Marine Week. He obviously knows nothing about Marines. They ARE trained to turn the other cheek and not to use their abilities unless their life depends on it. Trust me…as a former marine, we are trained to take down just about anybody, including someone with a gun. We run TOWARD the danger not away from it. Slay has no clue what he is talking about, and it’s comments like his that distort what Marines are all about. What a shame. Good job to the Marines who managed to survive what could have been a deadly attack by ordinary street thugs. I wonder how many gold teeth those punks had…

    • gotero

      I am sure their Gunny had a talk with them latter.

    • cwxj415

      WHO said it was “bad”? Apparently, these Marines made a decision, based on the particular situation they were in. Is there AN YTHING more pathetic than armchair quarterbacks like you, loony?

    • Freeland Dave

      Mainly it’s because of the anti-military sentiment of our nation today. Had these marines appropriately acted the media would have blasted them. As it stands now they simply look weak and disorganized which is exactly what the socialistic. media wants to portray them as

      As a combat Vietnam Vet I frequently witness the same sort of things. It’s a damned if you do and damned if you don’t situation.

      Honestly I a proud these three members of our military didn’t kill their assailants. it’s a testimony of their common sense and respect for the corps in that they used their brains and not their brawn instead of killing the two vermin that should rightfully have been killed.

      Better to take one personally on the chin than to discredit your entire organization over something like this. Instead of being persecuted and ridiculed they should be honored for using good judgement.

      Stemper Fi guys, you did us all proud.

      • Another vet's thoughts

        Uh, I’d say this is a discredit to the Corps. And really? You only see the options as roll over or kill? You don’t see a middle ground, like beat them down and call the cops? Right now the military is in pretty high esteem, and the news is too busy…well, good point. The news is so busy covering BHO’s failures and trying to destroy our nation that they might take a potshot here. Then again, no one with any brains or sense of patriotism listens to that same “mainstream media” so its moot anyway. No way would Fox News blast these Marines for beating down thugs.
        Giving in to anti-Americanism, I mean socialism, is wrong. Do the right thing, whining of the left be damned!

  • wildbill6996

    They should muster anyone out of the Marines that says Marines should hand over the wallets to any PIECE of TRASH that demands it. They should be instructed to use that training unless the TRASH has a gun, then give up the wallet. Whole country is quickly being NEUTERED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • amplitude jones

      that would be the commander in chief… and OK!

    • Gary Nelson Harper

      This is the case Wildbill. Take no chances, group decision making and nothing ventured unless it involves zero risk. 55% of the labor force is female. I love women, but the process of an all female crew making a decision is about as fun as passing a kidney stone. There is one thing worse than that however, a bunch of metrosexual men making a decision. Bring back the benevolent dictator.

    • Ken

      This is why women should not be spokespersons for the Marines.I’m not saying that the Marines should have engaged in an altercation or anything like that, but it might have been appropriate if perhaps the two thugs “tripped” a few times beforethe police arrived. I’m sure no one would have given it another thought.

      As a common Army draftee, Viet Nam era, we would have gone three of them on two of us and ripped them to shreds. The order to avoid fighting was void at the very second that a robbery with violence was being perpetrated against us as soldiers. You have to defend the brand. If the Marines could not do what their supposedly lesser warrior brothers in the Army would do…’s a revoltin’ deveopment.

      They were drunk. Why are you throwing the first stone? Have you never been ‘drunk’ before? Or do you think getting drunk is disqualifying? (I suppose it would be if on mission but not on leave?)

      • Joe

        Being drunk while in uniform is DEFINITELY NOT OK. But the article doesn’t mention it. How did they find out they were Marines?

      • GS

        I didn’t read anywhere that they were in uniform. Yes, a Marine is a Marine 24-7, but they’re still human and allowed to drink when they’re off duty.

    • aaron

      Just because they are Marines doesn’t mean they are ripped up and 6’4. Take three guys who are Marines and 5’8 180 and get ran up on by a couple big dudes who don’t care about a fight you are going to lose, even if you beat the hell out of someone when the cops come its gonna look like you were drunk, talkin trash and you are probably going to get charged with assault, I’m in the Air Force and if I were to get an assault charge I’d be stripped of my security clearance and lose my job. I would rather give up thirty bucks then lose thousands I would have made and get discharged.

      • AJ WOOD

        My point exactly… It’s a different world than what “BURL” used to know! -And that’s not a dig against Burl whatsoever… I’m sure he’s a hard nosed old school rough tuff jarhead that believes what he says, says what he means, and is completely disgusted that these fellow soldiers didn’t completely kick some major punk ass! I wish it were that way too, but the reality is- it isn’t… Now if these Marines weren’t drinking, (and I dont know if they were but it was implied) I do believe that Burl would for the most part be correct. But who’s to say that these Marines weren’t 120 lbs and completely outmatched? You have to face reality, and you have to survive! You have to uphold the truth and the honor, and make the right decision to protect yourself and your family! -BOTTOM LINE ! They should NOT be SHAMED and LABLED AS WIMPS!

      • CCT MSgt

        Well Aaron, I have to disagree. I’ve been in fights, even a couple of bar fights and have never received so much as an LOC, let alone lose my clearance. The point was, I didn’t start any of them (nor did my buddies). And as a “highly trained SOF guy” that was never thrown in my face either. I think most folks here are trying to cover down on these Marines with all this talk about ROE, etc. There’s a huge difference between “don’t hassle locals or respond to derogatory remarks” and “give up your wallet to an unarmed thug.” Also, most folks are missing they point that the Marines did in fact brawl, and it appears one brandished his knife and lost it. Rather than take the modern approach of pussification and try to find a scenario to save (and salve) their egos, a better approach would be to hotwash the event, which includes identifying the fact they lost. In the military, more so than many endeavors, it is imperative to be honest about what worked and didn’t, why, and how to buttress that weakness. These young Marines deserve that, and not to be treated like some paste-eating liberal that needs validation and can’t admit failure without needing therapy or medication.

      • Lewis

        They gave up more than $30. Like their ID’s, maybe.

      Not so Brown Bag. I’m a Marine going back to 1983 (Parris Island and Quantico). We do not know the size or race of the thugs. They didn’t know if the thugs had weapons either. You’d be an idiot to start a fight with some thugs who were armed. You win the fight, they kill you. I think they were smart not getting involved. Not to mention if they attacked the thugs, the police would probably had arrested them and ended their careers. What you “expect” from the Marines does not matter. Good Marines aren’t just tough, they are smart. You are not.

      • Avenger

        Wow…..Curt, you certainly sound like a wimp! Like Brown Bag said, kick ass(and ask questions later)!

      • GS

        I think his point is that not every Marine is a 20 year old ready to open a can of whoop ass on each thug that looks cross at them. Some of these guys are actually older, have families with kids and know that getting stabbed over a wallet will do their families no good at all. Regardless of the testosterone and rage.

      Judging by the comments of the PC Spokeswoman they were probably ordered to avoid fights at all costs. I feel sorry for the marines who were probably ordered not to defend themselves. I have never met a Marine who would be worried about taking on 2 opponents, careful, but not all that worried. They had too be ordered to be wimps.

    Not the former U.S. Marines that I know. One of these former Marines was robbed at knife point in a tunnel – It was a 2-on-1 situation in addtion to the knife. The prepetrators are now in jail and the shirt my boss was wearing with the blood stain from the knife wound are in his desk at work – he’ll show it to you if you ask. He’s just fine, but then he was a U.S. Marines and was trained for situations like this.

    Even though he is still lucky as he could been really hurt, he’s a bad-ass in a quiet, non assuming way and I’m sure he would fight back again. This is pretty much the caliber of the other former Marines I know.

    • Marbran

      It possibly could have been white perps on black Marines…until I read the part about trying to sell jewelry. No white perp is going to be hawking jewelry, first of all, and certainly not to young black guys. Hawking anything at 0230 is a definite black tactic, to lure the victims in. So I’m certain that the perps were black and the victims white. No doubt.

    This sort of thing is happening in all 60 states, including the 57 Obama visited, the one he still had left to visit, and the two he skipped (Alaska and Hawaii).

    I don’t believe a word of it. The Main Street Media publishes these garbage stories every day. Pure rubbish.

  • John Frost

    Obama is a Kenyan parasite

    • Carl Curmudgeon

      Congratulations, John.

      You managed to insult both Kenyans and parasites in a single post.

      You’re today’s poster boy for efficiency…

    Criminals often target drunken youngsters and fools, as well old people, women and anyone else who appears in a weakened or disadvantaged state. That the drunken youngsters or fools happened to be marines is little mystery but does make for good provocative fodder for media, it also makes the marines look bad which some people (especially criminals and enemies) find aid and comfort with such a scenario. The moral is “Stay thirsty my friends” but dont slack off, drop your guard or be a doof-bag; not on my watch.

    Im glad no-one fell on some bullets or was poked with a beyonet or bonked with a rifle butt. Good reportage.

    Thank you please,

    Since they’re letting gays into the military, they must have been 3 gay Marines.
