So, what would be a punishment befitting the crime? Send them to Sendai and have them collecting and burying bodies?

I wonder what THEIR excuse will be:

"We needed it so we could eat at Yoshino-ya for a month."

Disillusioned, I feel your anger, however, they don't deserve to touch the innocent bodies that still require a burial up there. I say, give them hand tools, gloves and garbage bags and make them keep cleaning the rubble until the job is complete.

At 22 shouldn't they realize they're on camera at almost every store they walk into? I guess they might not be the sharpest criminals.

Best thing for these guys is community service for a month or so in the disaster stricken areas.

They will soon learn a thing or two and why the box was put there in the first place.

Agree with posts above -- they should be sentenced to community work in the devastated areas.

Last I checked young Japanese guys are invincible, ichiban and immune to anything after a few beers or grape chuhis.

Agree with linro, community service, until the entire mess is cleaned up.

Community service actually sounds like the best way for this.

Agree with posts above -- they should be sentenced to community work in the devastated areas.

But what you are forgetting is, by the time the Japan justice system get anything done, the entire area hit will be cleaned up.

Don't know what they can steal from Fukushima, but when they get thirsty after cleaning some rubble.....I know where to get some water they can drink.

So, each of these low-life's got a criminal record for 5,333 yen, and now they have to give up the 5,333 yen.

A lot of crime is just this pathetic, and yeah, the Japanese legal system now has an eternal outlet for criminals: cleaning up Tohoku.

Give them each two to the head.

NO WAY..the above is too easy for them, they should tie them to a pole near the crosswalk in central shibuya with a banner around their necks saying these are the 3 who stole the donation money for fukushima people, and then send them up there to clean up.

NAME AND SHAME I SAY!!!!!!

These three truly are the scum of Japan. We can only wish them misfortune and bad karma wherever they go - for the rest of their miserable lives.
