Some party.

Feel very sorry for the lass, not how she planned her life to go no doubt.

Not being a Doctor I am surprised that she died these days from a stab to the stomach?

RIP. She didn't deserve to go that way. The man should be locked up with no return ticket to Myanmar.

Crime and antisocial behaviour is clearly correlated with poverty and disconnection from the community. These issues can affect anyone, but somewhat more so amongst migrants who did not grow up as part of the community and may imperfectly understand the language and culture. Obviously this affects low wage migrants inparticular.

Any issues would be due to a vanishingly small percentage to be sure. But the issue does exist, and should be considered.

I've visited many countries and it seems to me that the relative homogeneity of the Japanese society is in no small part responsible for the low crime rate.

so that means it was her house and her party?

yikes, I can’t imagine how awkward the other guests felt.

Or give him an even more severe punishment - make him live in Myanmar!

Maybe you misunderstand what i'm saying. Allow me to clarify...

Crime and antisocial behaviour is clearly correlated with poverty and disconnection from the community. 

1) immigrants are, on average, somewhat less integrated with the communities they move to, and somewhat less knowledgeable of the new culture/language than those who have lived there their whole life.

2) low pay/poverty has a correlation with crime

Which of these do you not understand?

Doesn't do much for the image of Myanmar, IMO.

I suspect prison justice will be served swiftly all things considered.

Hey 2Bob above, the claims you make ARE NOT seen in studies done in USA where Trumpistas made various claims about Latinos and crime.

REAL studies showed a lower incidence of criminal convictions among migrants compared to native born Americans.

Sorry to deflate your claim but methinks some misunderstanding/prejudice on your part exists.

In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

I am aware of that. I'm also aware of studies that show the opposite. in some European countries the crime rate is x3 amongst migrants. At the end of the day, it depends on the destination country, the origin country, and many other factors. There is no single answer.

But in this case we're not talking about immigration to a country with appalling crime rates like the USA. Japan has a very low crime rate.

And also quite a high degree of social cohesion. Don't mean to be rude, but the USA is not exactly in any position to advise others on racial harmony is it?

In any case, my post waa not arguing against immigration as a whole. Migrants just want opportunity and a good life like everyone else. My post was in reply to a toxic SJW calling a previous poster racist simply for asking if importing cheap labour is worth the problems. I believe thats a valid question to discuss.

The US certainly has its problems with this and has a very dark history with slavery ( not the only country ) leading to a complex present.

That said, progress has been made and it’s a country where people from many racial backgrounds want to live. It did elect Obama.

It’s doing something right.
