It must not be that hard to become a lawyer in Japan if the straws you have to grasp at are "the fire wasn't intended to hurt passengers" during the trial of a 10-man stabbing spree.

I don't have any worth as a person. I have no choice but to kill a lot of people and get the death penalty."

He shouldn't see the outside of prison for the rest of his life.

The prosecutors said Hattori conceived the attack on the Keio Line train after seeing media reports about another knife attack on an Odakyu Electric Railway commuter train a few months earlier in which a man stabbed and slashed 10 passengers.

This is what I mentioned in another post! People see the glitz, glamour and media attention Japan gives these murderers and when someone says something like "I don't have any worth as a person." and sees all the attention people like Abe's killer, those clowns who contaminated the utensils and foods at the sushi restaurant and others, they want that attention too! So they'll copy what thay saw. This is why the media has to stop giving them so much attention by mentioning their name, their backstory, their history and all things that may entice others to copy!

You must be referring to the judges in Japan who almost always give sentences much too light for the seriousness of the crimes committed.

I have no choice?? He does have a choice! He can turn his life around for the better. Kyota Hattori is a weak human being!

Well he’s had nearly two years sitting in a featureless cell to contemplate his choice in life.
