Recurring student beatings shock officials and parents

Date Posted: 2005-04-28

Another beating incident at a Naha City Junior High School has brought police into the picture.

Nine older junior high students beat up two younger students in a park near the school, causing severe injuries including broken ribs and a broken eardrum. The school principal told an emergency PTA meeting Tuesday the nine boys had lured the younger students to the park for a talk. He says the older boys then demanded respect, telling the younger boys “we are your elders.” One boy got away, racing back to the school for help. Teachers responded, stopped the beating, then took the youngsters to a nearby hospital.

Parents called police, who have launched an investigation. Teachers told police the older students routinely beat others, almost daily. Officials say the boy with the broken eardrum may wind up deaf.
