In most countries he wouldn’t be breathing any more.

As long as he never sets foot outside again. He is unbelievably fortunate not to spend that time in Peru. Japanese prisons are club med compared to Latin American prisons, and a simple research into such prison conditions will agree.

In the meantime, the victims' families have to live in mental hell for the rest of their lives after losing their loved ones in such a savage way and the killer lives on with a hot shower and 3 meals a day.

In the end he is getting rewarded, life in a Japanese prision is 100 times better than being free in a Latin American country, let alone a jail in that region.

He should've ridden the trapdoor swing at the detention centre.

Just send him to Tokyo Immigration Holding, he would have ended up dead, with no witnesses

Latin American prisons are a hellhole for the ordinary criminal. But if you're a gang boss or drug kingpin, you could live in luxury by bribing the right people. It's not uncommon to see gang bosses living in "special quarters" with all the luxuries money can buy, and prostitutes brought in every night by the guards in exchange for bribes and favours from the gang for treating the boss well.

Japanese prisons, while you won't starve or be beaten to death, are extremely regimented and lack most of the relative freedom of movement that SA prisons tolerate. Just to go the chow hall, workshop, library, etc, inmates are lined up in the hall and marched in lock-step singlefile military-style, and must consume all food items and cigarettes from outside care-packages in the presence of a guard (once a day, inmtes are allowed to smoke one cigarette and eat one snack item bought from the prison PX or sent from outside at the desginated time and place, while being monitored by a guard). Exercising in your cell room is forbidden, as is any exercise other than the planned activity of the day (group calisthenics, volleyball, soccer, etc). There's much more, but I'm starting to go off-topic.

“Just send him to Tokyo immigration Holding, he would have ended up dead, with no witnesses. “

Swell idea! That would save Japanese taxpayers millions of yen needed to keep this monster fed and kept alive.

@WA4TKG,

That’s not true, a quick Google search revealed only 53 countries in the world have the death penalty.

And most of them are developing countries.

It could also be argued that in many countries he would carry out his sentence in a mental hospital but Japan as a country does not seem to recognise mental illness amongst its population. That’s going off topic though.

I’ve met more than a few people in Japan who were mentally ill.

The. Ended help doesn’t seem to be forthcoming...

well can i say that he deserves to get capital punishment?

0 ( +2 / -2 )

This sentence is more criminal than the actions of the not-at-home patient/ " murderer".

2 ( +2 / -0 )

Is home security also at issue here . . . . ?

It's a life sentence now. But if his murderous violence recurs while in the prison, the Prosecutors will get another chance to press for capital punishment.
