Marines’ kids step forward, admit to throwing rocks

Date Posted: 2009-02-18

Yoshio Arashiro knew the people throwing rocks at his home only 70 meters from Camp Foster were military dependents, and his photographs have led to closure in the incidents.

Okinawa Prefecture Police and U.S. military police had been jointly investigating the charges of rocks being hurled at Arashiro’s home for ten years, and were able to determine it was the sons of Marines who did nearly $1,000 damages in this latest case. Arashiro says three boys, accompanied by their Marine fathers and a military-provided interpreter, showed up at his house to apologize and promise restitution.

Police say the 65-year-old Arashiro’s complaints leading to the boys’ identifications were on February 5th. The rocks were tossed from Camp Foster housing, across a fence to Arashiro’s home in the adjacent Chatan Tamagami District. Arashiro says rocks are still being thrown at his home, and is demanding the military do more to stop the youngsters’ misbehavior. He says he’s already put covers over his windows to protect them, but he’d like the military to raise the height of the fence at Plaza Family Housing for added protection.
