What has been going on in Hokkaido these days? Day after day we read about murders or assaults there.

Yet the reality is there would be less crime in all of Hokkaido than your town in your home country. I doubt they'd even report incidents of Domestic Violence in the national news there, unlike Japan.

Moron. He wouldn’t have to keep hearing it, if he actually got a job. Lol

“27. unemployed and drunk. Living with mother. Likes violence.”

A classic example of when you refuse to grow up and accept responsibilities!

Social crisis. There are so few decent full-time jobs. Even highly educated people, especially women, are on fixed term contracts. Not especially highly educated people have almost no hope. 150 years of capitalism looks like ending 2000 years of Japanese civilization.

Imagine hitting your own mother? No actually, I cannot.

I didn't know for sure but I was suspecting EXACTLY that.

Me neither. But then again, we are not spoiled man-babies like this piece of filth.

I’m sick of my partners family always shouting at me to get a job! I can’t find any jobs. I found this site because it has job adds, but no jobs. I hate her family, I want to put salt in their sugar. Every day emails, calls, “have you found a job yet? You are useless…”

I remember many, many years ago a foreign friend whose husband a Japanese doctor would physically abuse her, and she would call the police and allegedly said "you cannot hit your wife she is a foreigner." So, the fact, they are arresting this guy for hitting his mother appears to be a big shift towards domestic assaults on Japanese women.

Leaching off Mama and Papa, drinking and threatening them, that's what scums do.

He shouldn't fight the hand that feeds him! Sooner or later he will wake up drunk and in a cell wondering where his next good meal will come from but realize he has only that one choice!! Sober up get a job.

There’s unemployment in japan and everywhere else. Unless people refusing to work and not accepting offered jobs, they should be harassed on their unemployment
