Wannabe Yankee! Not going to be a long trial, but it's going to be years before he gets what he deserves!

Text book sociopath who needs a short drop with a sudden stop.

I just hope, as having a brother with a mental problem, that he gets what he deserves. And I give a iota about his life, just like he gave a iota about the lives of those 19 innocents. Hope gets the drop.

I hope the evil killer is executed. It wont bring all the innocent victims back, but there will be a little justice for the families.

Awful ! Terrible crime .

He is a criminal so why does he look like he has just walked out of a Shibuya hair salon ?!

He committed an horrendous crime.

Wonder how many clues he showed throughout his life but family, teachers, and friends looked the other way out of "shaming" themselves? Things like he did just don't pop up from nowhere one day.

Uematsu said he would not deny in court having carried out the attack.

"It's depressing," he said. "It's like going there to get insulted."

And he appeared to take pride in the devastating rampage. "I did my best", he told Jiji.

Fully agree with the posters above ...this piece of evil garbage deserves to swing , nothing less.

Trial? What for? Hang him.

I cannot imagine the devastation that the family members of the victims must be going through.

In interviews with Japan's Mainichi Shimbun daily he said those with mental disabilities "have no heart", claiming "there's no point in living"

This is classic bcluster sociopath projection. He is the one who knows he has no heart and no point in him living but they cant handle the truth that they are empty and void of a heart and empathy so they project it outwards.

Hang him and make it quick for the sake of the tax payer.

That photo is from the time of arrest. According to court sketches, he currently has shoulder length black hair and plastic frame glasses.

There's a Silence of the Lambs thing going on in that photo of him. 29 years old and 19 victims. He's a real serial killer. I know a lot of people on here want to see him swing, but he might be valuable to keep around for psychology professionals to analyze. Like kind of a rare human bug.

I don’t think he’s technically a serial killer as the victims came from a single incident.

"I don't think he's technically a serial killer as the victims came from a single incident."

Yeah, that's a good point. He's not like Ted Bundy or John Wayne Gacy in that sense. He is, however, a mass murderer. Also, serial killers are usually more methodical and cunning in how they kill. This guy just went berserk all at once which might have been because he was having a really bad day.

That is why we still have the death penalty in Asia guys!

Might sound trivial , but why should he still be allowed to keep his hair dyed ?!

Black and cropped. He is a criminal !

Sorry, I wanted to say "styled and dyed"
