    Guam stabbing rampage suspect held on $2M bail

    A Guam judge on Wednesday ordered $2 million bail for a man accused of killing two Japanese visitors and injuring 12 others after he drove his car into pedestrians and went on a stabbing rampage in the U.S. territory's tourist district.

    The prosecution requested the bail after saying Chad Ryan De Soto, 21, committed "heinous, extreme" violence rarely seen in Guam, a tropical island about 1,500 miles south of Tokyo that is heavily dependent on tourism.

    Superior Court Magistrate Judge Alberto Tolentino appointed a public defender to represent De Soto.

    A video of the brief court proceedings posted online by the Pacific Daily News shows De Soto, wearing an orange prison jumpsuit, telling Tolentino he has no job.

    De Soto, of Tamuning, is accused of plowing into several people with his gray Toyota Yaris late Tuesday as he drove onto a sidewalk and into a convenience store at the Outrigger hotel in the Tumon district. He then got out of his car and started stabbing people he came across.

    Been to Guam many times enroute for a double Diego shuttle and never heard of anything like this back then.

    Been there a few times myself, but back in '73 it was not particularly safe to be offbase, especially if inebriated. The locals looked for easy targets.

    Spent 15 months there while in the Navy in the early 70's. Wasn't always dangerous, but I was young and invincible back then.

    Did you get the t-shirt that said, "Almost Heaven, Diego Garcia"?

    Can't imagine something like that happening in Guam. It seems like nothing ever happened in Guam.
    We lived on Okinawa and stopped there a number of times. Not that Okinawa was a hotbed of activity in 1974 either.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Somewhere around here I think I still have one that says “Diego Garcia The Footprint of Freedom”.
