Heated argument and she can not remember what she did = few days in jail

That's one family murder reported every day for the last week. I see a pattern forming.

There seems to be a hell of a lot of intra-familial murder and violence in Japan.....

It's sad to read about but I don't think this happens in any higher percentile than other places, like the US. Japan is just so small in size that what would be deemed "local" and maybe only on the state's local news channel in the US is on a much larger more nationalized news channel in Japan. That being said, I hope this lady gets more than just a slap on the wrist, murder is still murder.

Me too! I didn't realize that other people also saw this pattern of reporting family murders in the news. I thought it was just me.

Another sad sorry but in Japan the indirect social pressures to conform can cause mental health issues. More recogniztion from the government for family councilors is needed.

Does she insane? I can't believe what I read in JT. There are many homicide crimes committing on parent by their own children. What kinds of society Japanese peoples live in today?

Except for the fact that Japan is about the size of California and Calibwould be the 5th richest economy if treated as a separate entity
