Son arrested after assaulting father in argument over money


Police in Kashiwa, Chiba Prefecture, have arrested an unemployed 44-year-old man on suspicion of attempted murder after he beat his 68-year-old father about the head with a metal baton.

According to police, the incident occurred at around 5 p.m. on Wednesday. Police said Muneharu Sugiyama, who lives with his father, has admitted assaulting his father but denied intent to kill, Fuji TV reported. He was quoted as saying he became outraged after his father turned down his request for money and started beating him about the head for about 20 minutes.

The father was taken to hospital where his injuries will take about one month to heal, police said.

Get off your @ss and get a job you lazy slug. Here's hoping he spends a long time in jail, and his father can move away and change his name in the meantime.

So, another 40’s parasite living at home attacks his parent coz he couldn’t get money - most likely for pachinko. Rewind, repeat scenario, just change the names dates and places. TIJ!

That's a misquote. It's really "The love of money is the root of all evil"

Really? Somehow I have the feeling that this guy is not exactly a decent and upstanding citizen, nor would he be any nicer if money disappeared from the planet tomorrow.

There seems to have been a rash of 40-y.o. men acting out over the past decade or so...

Been supporting this useless POS for 44 years (probably) and that's the thanks he gets for it: a metal baton about the head.
