Good news.

I hope the rest of his miserable days are spent in terror over when he is ordered to meet the executioner. That sure will be a righteous day.

Rest in Peace to the poor family he butchered.

Good decision.

I don’t have any faith in the Japanese police and the Japanese justice system.

Did he do it or was he just an easy guy to pin it on to get a high-profile case closed quickly?

What was the motive for the murders?

Brilliant decision by Japanese court, well done. His appealing decision also demonstrates of him not having human soul.a person who has a slight decency wouldn’t appeal the court decision after killing 2 children. He may have some reason killing his wife, but why kill innocent children. I hope he gets killed in most painful way.

punishment is "unavoidable" as he has failed to reflect upon the crime and show remorse

so if you do not confess and do not pretend to commit a crime, you must die???

Where is the evidence of the murder???

assumption, speculation, and presumption seem to be the grounds for a fair judgment....

It is a logical assumption that the defendant killed his wife

It is presumed that he lost his presence of mind

Yet he gets the only irrevocable sentence?

Doesn’t sound like a safe verdict. What ever he is accused of, what ever he may or may not be guilty of does not justify state murder.
