"I'm shocked because I wasn't ready for the death penalty"... but he had no qualms about handing it out against two innocents. Let the bastard swing.

Couldn't agree more.

He also said in another interview in March "If I do not appeal the decision, everyone will think that I did it."

I think that ship sailed when the judge said you're guilty.

This was a horrible murder. He stalked the two kids at night (caught on camera), abused and stabbed them. While I don't believe in the death penalty, I am disgusted that he tries to maintain his innocence. Most definitely this guy should not be allowed back into society.

"If I do not appeal the decision, everyone will think that I did it."

In other words, Yamada is now claiming that he was forced to sign a confession or that he did so under duress. Yamada also *'denied intending to kill Natsumi Hirata'*, so in other words suffocating her to death was somehow a big mistake. That makes about as much sense as her classmate dying of a mysterious disease at the same time she suffocated to death in Yamada's presence. As with most criminals, they didn't do it when it's time to pay the bill, or serve the sentence.

Go to prison. Go directly to prison. Go to prison until you die or meet the hangman.

As they said in the ol' west "Hang 'em high! Especially if you killed 2 kids to satisfy yourself!"

"I'm shocked because I wasn't ready for the death penalty," Yamada said.

The two young teens you murdered were not ready for their death penalty either you maggot. I hope there is an accident with the rope and you are left dangling there for days until you slowly die.

Hang him high!

It's difficult to think why shouldn't he swing. If it helps bringing just a bit of peace of mind for the families left behind (difficult), then there are no good reasons for leaving such persons alive.

Exterminate him and make room for the next one that killed his daughter just a few weeks ago. There just has to be s special place in another universe for that guy.
