Out of fear of facing discrimination, many families are reluctant to reveal the victims' names.

Shame on you Japan.

The very existence of such fear is far worse than one crazy individual doing something awful.

"Shame on you Japan."

Dude, do you understand the expression lost in translation? The families are not afraid of discrimination. They don't want the publicity.

Instead of saying Shame on you Japan, should you not say Shame on Satoshi Uematsu?

Wrong. They are not afraid of publicity, they are afraid of being discriminated against because they have/had a disabled family member.

If you don't believe that, you haven't been here long enough.

And if you want some help, just Google the following...

"japan disability shame"

Then, for more of the same, why not Google...

"japan family member leprosy discrimination"

"hibakusha discrimination"

(note the discrimination of descendents)

And there's plenty more

Agree with that 100% ...Japan has a long way to go to be anywhere near other advanced countries when it comes to discrimination and treatment of the disabled...the fact that families here still feel shame and hide the fact their family member is disabled speaks volumes . As for the perpetrator Uematsu , hope he burns in hell.

The former employee, care worker Satoshi Uematsu, 31, said during his trial that disabled people who are unable to communicate "create unhappiness in society." With that said, Satoshi should have killed himself because he had a disabled mind and killing innocent individuals he is the one who created unhappiness in those families who lost love one. What a selfish thought for an idiot who thought he was sane when in fact he needed help.

Death is too easy. This psycho deserves life in jail and suffer for the helpless people he killed. He targeted some of the most helpless people in society for no reason. I can't wrap my head around that. Disabled individuals can still contribute a lot to society and are not a nursih

The former employee, care worker Satoshi Uematsu, 31, is on death row with his sentence having been finalized in March last year after he withdrew his appeal. He said during his trial that disabled people who are unable to communicate "create unhappiness in society."

Good old gallows awaits..
