Posted in: Japan now able to deport people with multiple failed asylum claims See in context

several European countries that typically accept more than 10,000 asylum seekers annually

"lags far behind", Japan is actually well early in front of all these occidental countries to reject immigrants.

Check out the results from yesterday and see if the citizens of European countries are happy about that.

@theFu don't you get compensation while uner non-compete?! Why would you go anywhere else or respect the clause if you're not compensated? Any court would never accept an ex employee not being compensated.

@Hachima Kiko:

"Noto spent 25 million yen of government grant money"

"27 million yen is a pretty huge investment in squid"

25? 27? maybe 26? What's the real price?

I agree.

How much free will does a 12yrs and 15yrs old girl even have

Exactly, then why:

Does she have a smartphone with free internet access and a Twitter account?

Was she alone on the street without any adult to look after her?

If you consider a 15yo girl has no free will, it's for everything, not only for not being kidnapped. Then no smartphone, no outings without adults, ..., ...

Parents are responsible of their underage children, whether they are victims or aggressors. In Japan, I'd even say, the family and their companies are responsible.

I don't fall into emotional. "convicted in a court" and the actual facts are two different things.

The general idea under kidnapping is without the victim's willingness, or FORCED.

The first actual fact that leads to that story is the girls followed him without any resistance and weren't forced.

Part of this could have been easily avoided if a 12yo girl weren't chatting with an adult on Twitter.

What's interesting to me is guys like you love to bleat, "we are never responsible for anything".

Life shows you're responsible. These girls won't follow any random guy anymore, and that guy won't invite little girls at his place anymore.

Some would call that "significant impact on their future lives", I'd just call that experience.

Actions lead to consequences, in both direction.

The world isn't a fairy tale, men are physically involved, women are mentally involved.

It's easier to see direct consequences of physically actions, but much more complicated to see mental consequences but that doesn't mean they don't exist. Then stop with that men vs women bs.

Why was the 12yo girl on Twitter? How about the 15yo girl? What's shocking is that he didn't even kidnapped them. They went to his house with full willingness. Parents have clearly a problem.

I thought it was a new idol group in the police theme.
