Doesn't surprise me.

Most Japanese old man are so precious and once they lose their prestige they lose their 'manhood!'

I thought people on this comment section complain about the Japanese justice system of guilt until proven otherwise yet in this case they are happy to sentence this guy over allegations, hmm, double standards?

"Harada, 72, allegedly kicked his wife in her leg at their home in Tokyo on Friday. His wife, in her 50s, called the police." another website reported, "dang, he beat the breaks off his woman".

BTW I thought Eiko was a woman's first name.

It's not unique to Japan.

I noticed no asked what did the wife do to provoke it? Perhaps nothing, but perhaps she was bustin him up about cash etc.. 

Is that excusable provocation to beat someone in your opinion?

Maybe no one asked what the wife did to ‘provoke’ it because:

Maybe she didn’t ‘provoke’ it.

Gender is irrelevant. Assault is assault.

Such management jobs surely require to be an emotion amputated psychopath. You can’t do that successfully with kindness and mercy.

What a piece of garbage. Think youre so tough beating up a woman, old man? I hope this wife basher serves jail time and cops it in there big time.

Absolutely nothing will happen to him. In fact, he'll probably receive a lot of sympathy from the like-minded old men in power here (like Mori). He may have to throw out a Mori-like "apology", then scream at reporters, but that's it. A few women with a modicum of power will say it's regrettable, maybe even "unforgivable", but shrug and say the apology ends it.

It is unusual that J women cried for help out of domestic abuse. I guess she had had enough of him to pick up courage and expose her husband's violence to the public. Well done. Next get a divorce and move on.

or more simply another Japanese old guy beating his wife.

If you’ve ever worked with the type of personalities who make it to the top of big companies this would not surprise you.

“ credited with reviving Apple in Japanle “ How stupid of me to think all these years that the launch of the I-Phone did that.

” Reviving Mc Donald’s ? Mc Donald’s always does well in crisis times and he had 2008 and 2011 during his time. Look at Mc Donald’s setting records now. He did have the 100 yen hamburger but basically he was a passenger in a good running train.

what he started was the Tokyo marathon sponsorship at 100.000.000 yen a year. A ridiculous non-match as a marketing expense but he started running himself when he was at Mc Donald’s, hence the sponsorship.

Once again, tried and convicted by the court of JT law!

Was he accused? Yes

Was he taken into custody? Yes

Was he arrested? NO! (Detained, or taken into custody YES)

Give him his day in court!

If this was about money, the victim usually opts to settle out of court. If brought to criminal charges, the victim usually does not get compensated unless a additional civil suit is approved by the court.

Eiko with a short O and 子 suffix is a woman’s name. Eiko with a long O and suffix such as 光、幸、甲、功、etc, are male names.

My bet is this is swept under the rug after some bowing. Ridiculous

3 ( +3 / -0 )

Eiko Harada, who has served as the head of the Japanese subsidiaries of McDonald's Corp and Apple Inc, has been arrested for alleged domestic violence

This alone will let everyone kbow that he is of the upper crust, thus bow and thats that! What a joke of a system. What justice would his wife get? She should sue him for everything as her justice.

Jealousy has no boundaries, or is it the 22 years age diff.

I've yet to see you, or any of the other men who consistently make this type of remark, make this remark on any post other than those that involve abuse of women.

If you consistently made this kind of remark on others posts, say for example, posts about robbery, money laundering, shoplifting, arson, vote-buying, extortion, Carlos Ghosn, manga piracy, and child abuse, then I might think you actually believe it.

And just for the record? Women don't lie about having been beaten up by their boyfriend or husband. If a woman has, say, a black eye, bruised ribs, a concussion, a split lip, a broken nose, or broken teeth, she didn't do it to herself and then accuse her husband just to see him get in trouble.

Domestic violence is endemic, and its existence isn't up for debate by you or anyone else.

No. This guy has had a career in Gaishikei firms, so he's not part of the Japan Inc./Ministries Yin Yang.

The wife's a former J-Pop chanteuse.

The picture they put up on the tv just now of her, was when she was in her early 30s.So trying to sex up the story.

My late father gave me many words of wisdom, but none more apposite than these:

A man who hits a woman is no man at all.

Everybody feeling triggered now?

Shame on Apple for hiring someone like this.

OK - who's downvoting me for disapproving of hitting women? That's a strange mast to pin your colours to.
