So was this woman Japanese? I hear rumors that Japanese news is reporting the woman to be a Filipino prostitute who raised the price after the fact. Just trying to clear speculation. @YongYang very good article and well cited. Better than most articles by the host website.

I would like to add that publicizing the punishment more and a louder message of "you are not immune" and "just cuz your overseas" isn't an excuse to be pigs.

Mass punishment agreed. Zero crime is unrealistic. I think public media involvement in next criminal case. Publicize the accusers pain and stress.

Yes Marines should pull out.. Blah Blah Blah Okinawans need to think about how much revenue is generated from the bases before they scream pull out. The local economy will crumble. The acts that these people did are horrible. I am ashamed as an American. But for arguments sake how much crime is the military responsible for? 1 or 2 % of the over all. I also look at it like this how would I feel if an Afgani man rapped a woman from my town. But in America racial lines are blured and I say punish these people.
I wish the would get a dishonorerable discharge and then let Japanese extradite them back to the US. Or maybe keep them in until the military court can punish them for Article 92 and send them to the brig again.....
Just my personal opinions.
