US arrest[edit]

Article: "Shortly after his return to the United States, he was recognized by one of the former POWs and subsequently arrested." Uh, what are the odds? Any information on how or where this happened? 23:59, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

RE: US arrest[edit]

Actually, I do have information on that. My great-uncle, William Leon Bruce, did, in fact, see Kawakita while furniture shopping with my great-aunt Jean. If you would like more information on that, here's a link: http://1947project.blogspot.com/2005/06/victim-tells-of-thrill-in-trapping-jap.html —Preceding unsigned comment added by 198.181.182.2 (talk) 21:06, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

RE: US arrest[edit]

Oh - sorry forgot Yes President Eisenhower commuted Kawakita's sentence to life in 1953, and yes President Kennedy released him in 1963, deported him to Japan and banned him from ever entering the U.S. - and yet, he lives in the U.S. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 198.181.182.2 (talk) 21:16, 11 January 2008 (UTC)
