Arrests of 2 U.S. Sailors in Rape Case in Okinawa

This is the most recent case in Okinawa.

And below records are the past incidence which happened in Okinawa.
I would like people to understand why Okinawa/Japanese people would like their peaceful life back and US people to go home.
From those records, Japanese would NOT think US are protecting us but making sad and stressful life to Japanese children and parents.

Not good and criminal

Yet, I would not want to see the stats on Soviet and Chinese incidents. But then again it was and is most likely the norm there. ie. all those lands the Russians occupied and the Chinese wars vs. neighbors ie. Korea, Vietnam, etc. :(

I would wager that prosecution rate of American soldiers is nowhere near the Sino/Soviet/Russian rate...ie. saying that the American rate is much more in the lines of justice.
