Saw them putting barbed wire along the school wall on the news. Didn't see watch towers but that might come latter. I suggest movement sensors and robot guards. Also that young man should have at least two heavily armed police accompanying him everyday. Surely a Kevlar uniform is doable? I'm suprised he doesn't have to wear a construction helmet? Might be time to find a body double.

Gotta feel sorry for the kids having to attend what amounts to a prison. As if the rigors of middle school were not hard enough. Now, they are locked in!

Why did the school have to be closed? Knifes were found, man arrested. End of story.

If the school hadn't been closed and a thorough investigation hadn't been carried out, there would be outcry and accusations of dereliction of duty.

Remember, this involved a young royal. Not a lesser mortal.

The potential victim is not a regular kid. It is a Prince, perhaps future Emperor. That is why the school had to be in lock down.

I am real relieved Prince Hisahito is OK to resume his studies and had no mental scars.

Putting all eggs in one basket is bad.

Abe san needs to talk about changing Imperial succession rule to allow women to assume throne.
