Unfortunately a lot of sickos are roaming the streets of Japan today.

High time for the Japanese government to put it on their radar and do something about it.

Random crimes may be down, but planned ones are definitely same or even increased in recent years, but there are more cover ups when it us done by high-class citizens.

I know of 2 murders personally but were not investigated as such because the perpatrators were from influentual families. All of us and our families were threatened

"Random crimes may be down, but planned ones are definitely same or even increased in recent years, "

IMO:

I remember in the 70's Singapore, had a rough time with crime, but when the police population began to be mixed with other nationals, and their laws became stricter, crime dramatically reduced. Now Singapore in 10 times safer than Japan and now the Japanese yen is very close to the Nepalese rupee, and Nepal does not make any name brand vehicles.

Just too bad, no one is safe soon until apprehended.

Chiba, Saitama, Kawasaki, and other Tokyo bedtowns are a magnet for crazies.
