Please. Please. After these two trash are convicted - hang them ASAP.

Not a single tear will be shed.

"... a case believed to be linked to a string of burglaries seen across the country over the past year or so."

And as we all know, Japan is the safest country in the world and we cannot think otherwise just because of one incident. However, violence in Japan has been increasing more and more.

Time to wake up and smell the truth.

Where are you from? I’m just curious and asking politely. Do you know a country that is safer? If anything Japan is too safe and the people here are complacent and don’t take any precautions aside from locking their bicycles, which is why they are so easy to scam.

Still way safer than many other countries. I have lived and worked in some dodgy neighborhoods and still no comparison in Japan. These lowlifes need a good lesson in street justice.

Agree with your sentiments entirely. The more I think about it though, maybe executing them is just too easy for them. Give them a 90 year prison term, and let them slowly rot, would in some ways be more of a punishment to them.

Japan is not the safest country in the world, the safest is Iceland, but Japan is ONE OF THE SAFEST countries to live in the world, always in the 10 most safest list..

Although historically crime continues to drop in Japan, some violence has increased IN THE WHOLE WORLD due to the social effects of the pandemic and inflation, numbers that will surely return to their normal levels..

Time for you to be more objective in your comments, otherwise why don't you try the "safe" good old US??..

At least there is a 2nd amendment.

...and a 19-year-old male university student who resides in Tokyo's Nakano Ward.

Not surprised in the least.

What "truth"? That some here are obsessed with imagining there is a crime wave in Japan? Sure, if you are fixated on newspaper headlines, you would think that... everywhere. In real life, this island is still incredibly safe.

Japan is safe in the street and you can walk alone in the street. Most parts of Japan is safer than western countries.

My wife was robbed in broad daylight by a group of youth when she was came back from the Supermarket. She called out for help, but no one came out from their home. They got my wife's handbag with $ 200, Credit cards, Bank cards and phone. They had escaped with the getaway car. We had opened the robbery case with the Police, but the Police couldn't catch the robbers.
