Once again, no punishment over actual lawbreaking. TIJ.

How about these sumo wrestlers having some 'hinkaku' (dignity) outside the ring as well as inside?

Not a big deal. He just threw a remote control. He's a trained ancient warrior, as sumo wrestling is both a sport and martial art. It could have been much worse, and he should not retire.

better lock him up indefinitely so he doesn't destroy evidence, like they're doing with ghosn.

confess i say, confess!

Good luck if/when he returns to Mongolia. Harumafuji is a beloved figure and I doubt his compatriots will be very welcoming to the guy who brought him down.

“Not a big deal. He just threw a remote control.”

You’re confusing him with the one who attacked him a year ago. There were only hands involved this time.

None of them have dignity as they should have in becoming sumo wrestlers of rank. No one watches this sport any more because of the scandals.
