Here come the copy cats. I hope this girl gets the real help she needs

This guy had a job and a place to live... he could be the guy working right next to you. Scary

He tried to strangle her with a "string?" If this translation is correct then both of these people made a half-hearted attempt at what they were trying to accomplish.

Quote: ...saying he tried to kill her because she "asked for" it, they (police) said.

That is just an excuse. He 'lured' her to his room and tried to kill her because he wanted to. The fact that she had expressed a desire to die was simply a convenience. An attempted copy-cat crime. The question must be, why? Was the motive sex, money, boredom, or what?

J People - always in need of attention. If you want to truly kill yourself, you don't need to post it on social media. Just do it and get it over with.

As for the d-bags here scouring social media looking for those who want to end their lives, you're no Dr. Kovorkian. Go get a real job - delivering newspapers hardly qualifies.

Why would you ever think this is only a Japanese thing?

Lock this guy up! But... I gotta add... if you go to a the house of a person who answers your suicide posting after he says "I'll kill you... come on over", you ARE asking for it to an extent. WHY would you ever go to the house of someone who says they will kill you?

What do you know of suicide?

And just what's wrong with delivering newspapers?

I didn't say this was a Japanese only thing. It's a Japanese article on a Japanese site written about two Japanese people. And the fact of the matter is that way too many Japanese people here in Japan are just in dire need of attention. If they were not, then they would go find a tree in Aokigahara and get it over with quietly - not post on Twitter or other social media that they want to die, look for someone to help them, etc. It's all just a cry for attention - same as jumping in front of a train (inconveniencing all the passengers, traumatizing the conductor, often time costing their family money for the service disruption/damage, etc).

I would be saying the exact same thing is this were a EU website with an EU article talking about idiots in the EU doing the same thing.

As far as what I know about suicide - I know that people who talk about it are looking for attention, not the end. And anyone who requires the service of a 2nd party to help is obviously too dumb or lazy to do it themselves.

Compared to "teaching" English, there's nothing wrong with delivery newspapers. But being he's a native Japanese, he obviously didn't prize education or inherit much brains from his family is that as high as he can reach at 28 years old. Sounds more like he sound have been the one seeking someone to assist in his suicide.

At least his logic works

In some countries, not sure about Japan, attempted suicide is a crime. Is she also under arrest? Whats her name as she would be a suspect (if over 18 now)?

JuminRhee,

It’s not a crime here.

Andy,

Looks like you didn’t prize your English language education either.

They should send them to Siberian goulags to contemplate life instead. What a piece of garbage.

Two idiots.one seeking attention and the other one on a power trip with sexual undertones!

Someone should tell Saito that his job is to deliver the news, not be it.

You said this:

You directly stated that your comments were about Japanese people.

At least she ended up fighting for her life. She still needs mental and emotional help, but it is a step in the right direction.
