4 Comments

Police in Osaka have arrested a 51-year-old unemployed man on suspicion of forcible obstruction of business after he called the office of the company where he used to work and threatened them with an arson attack similar to the one carried out against Kyoto Animation Co studio in July.

According to police, the suspect, Naoki Nakjima called the company, which is in Nagoya's Minami Ward, on Nov 14 and said he had a can of gasoline just like the one used in the Kyoto Anime arson attack, and that he would burn the building down.

Immediately after the call, the company, which makes machine parts, contacted police. Nakajima was traced through his cell phone which he used to make the threatening call, police said.

Police said Nakajima has admitted making the call and quoted him as saying he did it to get even with the company because he was bullied when he worked there.

"Nakajima was traced through his cell phone which he used to make the threatening call..." Lock him up for his own good, and everyone elses'...

Even if that's true, that doesn't justify threatening arson and murder. You beat bullies by rising above them, not by turning into a cold-blooded monster. You have a brain. Use it.

This guy is in his fifties and his gripe is being bullied? This is Japan! Bullying is present in every level of the society. One would think this joker had worked that out by now.

I would like people to define "bullying."

That is because I've heard some cases of "bullying" and they turn out to be the victim just being a jackass to others and not realizing it.

As a result, the people around the victim were just acting normal, except in the victim's eyes.
