Abe will be cremated,but where do PM remain be housed

-9 ( +2 / -11 )

Shame they didn’t guard him as closely as they did his house.

18 ( +21 / -3 )

A former prime minister should have at least 3 or more bodyguards at all time.

4 ( +7 / -3 )

Just as in Nara they're all facing the same way.

2 ( +8 / -6 )

Why guard it now? A little too late for that.

20 ( +22 / -2 )

Crowds are gathering in the area until the funeral on Tuesday takes place.

Why guard it now? A little too late for that.

Because more politicians come to Abe's house to say farewell to him and also condole to his wife.

-1 ( +4 / -5 )

There is more security around Abe-san's house than there was around him in Nara.

3 ( +7 / -4 )

I believe the guarding of Abe's house is a show of respect/remorse for what happened and is more symbolic than anything.

-2 ( +4 / -6 )

Ridiculous, just like his "Security".

2 ( +5 / -3 )

As always in Japan:too much,too late.

4 ( +9 / -5 )

RIP, sad situation, duly acknowledged.

But what is the point now?

"Come on guys, let's get those traffic cones out, we can't have any respecters and mourners getting too close. The stable door's behind you. Who's got the bolt?

Why are they lining up that way

Why are they lining up that way

Because pedestrians have to walk on right/left side of public road/street, must not in the middle.

Selling after the market.

They are more vigilant when it comes to checking for cars

making the wrong turn than guarding a former PM.

What a shame. Till date I have not heard any discussion or explanation

why even with an heli it took 50 minutes to ferry Mr. Abe to the hospital.

It is an emergency if it means stopping traffic on a highway to allow the heli

land or have it land on an elementary school ground it had to be done to save

because every second counts and can make a big difference.

Closing the gate after the horse has bolted!

1 ( +1 / -0 )

What an inconvenience for the neighbors.

Noise, blocking the street, loss of privacy, not let people morn in peace is the ultimate insult.
