Their second-born son died of sudden infant death syndrome in 2016, with police finding no crime in the death.

Better go back and do a proper investigation! In a manner of speaking it's the cops that are partially to blame for the abuse this child was subject too. If they had investigated this death thoroughly odds are things would have stopped!

24 year old couple, and had 4 kids already! Evidently their idea of "birth control" comes after the fact!

Punishment in kind, repeated daily, for a period of life without parole, and take the other children away and put them into a loving home PLEASE!

The remaining children need to be taken away before any further damage is done, who knows what they've seen or had done to them. The two human scum need to be sterilized at the very least. They can't be allowed to procreate anymore

Insane people, take their children away from them

How exactly could the cops have prevented a death had they investigated the death thoroughly?

These two a grossly negligible adults. They've clearly been ruining the lives of 3 children. Furthermore, this really calls into question the true reason behind the daughter's death.

As for police accepting and elementary school answer such as "he bumped into the wall." How could an answer like that really stick?

Japanese people don't want to "rock the boat" so they mind their own business to an unhealthy degree.

I'll bet these idiots thought they were doing no wrong. With the abuse of the other two children it is difficult to believe the other child died from SIDS.

Read the article. There were two deaths.

Please take their remaining children into care and lock the parents up. SIDS...yeah right.

Not one child dead but 2.

Please please LOCK THEM UP FOREVER

Lock these two up and give the kid a better home. I've owned BB guns for years and have never even jokingly pointed them even at our pets. Despite being considered "toys", BB guns are still dangerous. I can't even begin to imagine firing at your own kid, some parents these people are

Save the other two kids asap.

People with an IQ of under 90 should not be allowed to breed.

And when has that ever happened? Even if they pin the death of the infant on them, they probably won't get more than the other couple with the 10 year old daughter which had much bigger press.

never.

If you actually thought that I actually have any faith in the justice system of this country you need to get your head examined. It was just a hopeless plea to the authorities

You're going a bit eugenics there. Most people with low IQs would love and cherish their children just the way more intelligent people would. This isn't about IQ, it's about sheer, unadulterated criminal viciousness.

harming their 1-year-old son last November by firing a BB gun at him dozens of times, police said.

Line them up in front of a wall and respond in kind. Monsters.

The daughter is still alive.

OMG.

Rescue the eldest boy and his sister!

The parents are a pair of psychopathic sadists.

Where does it say that was even reported to the police?

A defenseless 1 year old angel against pure evil-possess parents...do I need to say more! RIP little brother.

Headline should read "couple arrested for firing BB gun at since deceased son. Two child deaths in family".

The headline here doesn't do justice to the horror story in this 'family'.

I would like to believe this callous mistreatment of children is an isolated incident. However, the recent rapid increase in child abuse and the absolutely disgusting callousness of many of the cases forces me to believe there is a serious problem in the family unit in Japan. Some examples of the callous abuse just over the last few months include, scolding with hot water, burning with cigarettes, kicking toddlers in the head, locking in a freezing cold bathroom. That is without mentioning the number of newborns found in toilets, river beds, train lockers and boxes hidden in closets. These are only the recent ones. If you want to go back a little further in time you’ll find toddlers suffocating in garbage bins and one that still disturbs needs is a young couple who left their three-month old baby under the seat of their scooter in the middle of summer while they played pachinko. There is just not enough live in Japan.

Very, very straaaannge.

Some shouldn't be allowed to have children. Here's further proof of it.

More like lowlife scum keep popping out babies that they can't care for but either want to collect child care or simply were to dumb to use protection. It will only get worse from here as the cycle continues.

Sadly SID's does happen, yet it could also have been something else. Odds are if there was nothing outwardly obvious as to why the child died, the cops would not do more than a precursory investigation.

These things are horrible, but they have been happening in all of humanity for a lot longer than the timeline you gave. Unfortunately there’s a certain portion of humanity with the capacity to do these acts, and some of those end up doing them.

3 yrs maximum sentence, for the girl, the guy will get 7 yrs. Both out in less than 2yrs.

Couldn't have put it better myself. Such callous and erroneous acts committed by these disgusting excuses for human brings is utterly unfathomable. Five kids without the means to even properly bring them up has led to the deaths of possibly two of them, not to mention the untold suffering caused by the abuse of these two w. If there was ever a reason for forced sterilization, this is it. This worm even had the gall to say that the air rifle, weighing around five kikograms, had been used by his three year old son.

“At the time of the air-gun incident, the couple lived with their eldest son, Yuiga and a daughter. Their second-born son died of sudden infant death syndrome in 2016, with police finding no crime in the death.”

And their fifth child, their second daughter, was born this year. News is now saying the oldest son is saying his father shot the air gun at Yuiga.
