It’s a pity that there isn’t a test to become a parent.

A total tragedy and from here on the wife and other kids will suffer the most.

@Lisa Twaronite - a brave, and one of the only mature comments on this story.

This guy has already 4 kids and still does not know how fragile a 1-month old is? Seems to me the other kids are lucky to be alive.

I hit her because she would not stop crying. I was suffering from stress."

Idiot!! She's a month old! what did you expect??

"Otosan- would you please be so kind as to change my diapers and I would like to hit that bottle as well please" ???????????

23 and already has four children. Don't they ever stop? Like frigging rabbits and then suffer from stress???

This man is single-handedly trying to solve Japans population issue.

That is not the action of a man! It’s the action of a little boy. Scum

hope he won't stress anymore. If you're not ready to have a family don't go for one. I really do lack words

Some people leave me speechless, and hes one of them. IF, hes done it, then he should be charged with manslaughter. I wonder what his wife thinks of him?

1 ( +1 / -0 )

I wonder who else he's attacked for stupid reasons! This guy should be in jail for the rest of his life, or sentence to death.

Everyone last of your ancestors just felt remorse for struggling to see your blood line survive until YOU!!!!

Congratulations! You single handed rendered all their efforts meaningless! POS!!!!

I see a lot of these sinister proud pappys slinging their off spring on bikes, strollers and knapsacks looking for their public praise but have a short fuse mentality waiting to pop n pappy.

WOW, four kids and maybe one in the oven they didn't mention about and this idiot says "I hit her because she would not stop crying. I was suffering from stress." Japan is a safe country but it seems not for kids.

Dogs bark. Babies cry. And four kids at the age of 23? If you can't take care of a dog, don't have kids, especially four! I was 24 when my first son was born. Wasn't exactly planned and nearly bankrupted us. We weren't stupid enough to have more until we were financially stable. I can't imagine how reckless you can be to have 4 children at the age of 24.

Clearly someone skipped out on sex ed classes

‘tis nothing to do with sex ed. This guy is either an irresponsible deadbeat loser, or he has a screw loose somewhere.

Still, it takes two to tango.

Where are all the people that would have been saying we should feel sorry for the woman if the mother had done it? I say lock this guy up same as I would had it been the mother. There is ZERO excuse for this kind of thing -- no stress from the child crying, or PPD, or whatever abbreviation it is. Give him life in prison.

Nothing but a Grub !

Needs the "treatment " while in lock up !

23 and he's already fathered 4 kids? Clearly someone skipped out on sex ed classes and now an innocent, helpless baby suffered the consequences of this man-child's inability to handle stress. Babies cry. It's a fact of life. Can't handle parenthood? Don't have unprotected sex.

I also can't believe it took them over a year to arrest this piece of scum. I hope they throw the book at him and lock him up for good.

In many parts of the world couples must take blood tests and undergo a psychological evaluation before a marriage license is issued. It keeps all the creeps and the rejects from having kids that will suffer at their hands.

It took more than 18 months to arrest him? Surely they should have arrested him at the time the child was brought into hospital?

Hope he gets what's coming to him... what a piece of scum.

The police said they will investigate whether the man had been committing child abuse on a regular basis.

What does it matter? The baby is dead. Get this fool out of society.

Please lock this guy up next to someone who is stressed out in prison, and let them punch him out daily, for everyday, for the rest of his natural life!

Another one. When I am stressed out, I go for a walk. I exercise. I swim. I have a beer with a friend who I can chat with. However, I never take a shot at a baby to release my stress. Ever. WTF?!

Another one...just a day after the latest similar case reported yesterday... killing a 1 year old for crying. Why didn't you give her some food & check her nappy and hug her to sleep..that's probably all she needed you worthless POS.

He deserves to be hung. Not 15 years being clothed and fed in prison, and then released to do it all again while still young. Execute the trash.

Rest in Peace to the poor little baby, never given any chance in life.

"Man arrested for fatally punching 1-year old daughter".

"He is not a man!"

Very soon he'll be a dead man, with any luck - pure evil.

It took the police nearly a year to get a confession?

6 ( +6 / -0 )

Disgraceful.

If the allegation is true, I truly hope there is a "special" place in jail for people like him. Horrible. RIP little one...sad.

I hit her because she would not stop crying. I was suffering from stress.

Far out. What's wrong with these stupid guys? It's a baby for goodness sake. They cry.

Jgov seriously need to address anger management and mental health issues in Japan. It's starting to get out of hand.

He is not a man!

this is what i call unresponsible fatherhood by not adult yet or maybe mentally ill man.

very sad to read similar stories here every single day.

very sad...

I get having a kid when you are young, maybe a mistake...but four?!? What, he had a kid at 18 and decided to triple-down? Yeah, I can see where the stress may come from. Too young to probably be having any kids, nevermind four.

All the stress in the world shouldn't cause this, but people need to stop having kids before they are very ready, and definitely don't try to "fix" things by just having even more.
