Mori was released from prison recently following a conviction for threatening behavior after he took a container of kerosene to the city hall and struck the floor with a hammer in July last year, according to the police.

Winter is coming, has no place in society, probably no job, no future, and the only option to stay clothed and fed through the long winter, commit a crime that will send him to jail!

(Second such crime this week!.....)

Well there is your problem right there! They released him without any kind of counseling or anything into the public.

Fortunate for the city of Amagaseki that suspect did carry a container of kerosene instead of gasoline with him. This could be a replay of what took place in Kyoto anime. Maybe he didn't even have an ID to show at the gas station to buy gasoline. Is the NO ID NO GAS ordinance been implemented already? ( did not care to check)

Most Japanese would never dream of doing anything like this.

However, the few out there are the ones that need some type of solution!
