We read about stabbings in the news every day here in Japan, with at least some of them ending up being fatal.

When is this country going to enact common-sense knife legislation?

Ruddy hell,wonder if it was random or a grudge thing. Bloody nasty thing to do.

Loads of cameras around them areas, police usually find these types by tracing where they were before the event and where they went after.
