Posted in: Man gets 7 years in jail for kidnapping woman who was later found dead See in context

IF 10 years is max in this case then 10 years is what these people should be getting. What on earth are these judges thinking?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? These men ALL participated in a killing if an innocent human life and then they ALL participated in hiding their crime.

"Publicly start charging negligent "employees", put them in jail, fire them, and let everyone know in the process that this will NOT be tolerated anymore, and changes will occur.."

Yup. This should be at the very least a first step and an absolutely necessary one. Where is the accountability?

Unfortunately, to me this feels more like a PR stunt than a meaningful effort to truly help these children in these abusive situations.

JeffLee @07:03am today

This news reporting is irresponsible. Disclosing the names would alert the industry and public that might have have used the same products or services, putting them at risk.

Precisely. The public is always left in the dark here from all sorts of frauds and criminal acts. We are NEVER informed of the REAL facts. What gives?!?

Disgraceful parents, disgraceful government 'officials' and disgraceful 'education' board. Shame on all of them.

How can anyone in their right mind disagree with this comment?!? Every single adult in this young person's life failed her. Yes, the gov. 'officials' failed her. Yes, the board of education really failed her and yes, her sick-minded 'parents' really, really failed this innocent child.

Posted in: As nations turn on Maduro, Venezuelan leader parades with military See in context

Unfortunately the way repressive regimes work is they manage to hold "elections" in which the outcome is predetermined and the peoples' votes just a charade. I wonder when Chavez was in power whether he was rightfully the winner or were the circumstances arranged as to make sure there wasn't a clear and true opponent to vote for. Mr. Putin is a perfect example. Of course he stands up for this "President". These low-life dictators really know how to look out for each other. And, it's a bit disheartening to see that they have such a following beyond their borders as well. We, members of the "free world", should be careful what we wish for.

Posted in: Japan to seek high-level talks with N Korea in Sweden See in context

@Akie

Big wrong. Why would Japan have to meet Korea in Sweden, half world away ? Abe can go to China and meet Koreans anywhere in the Northeast.

Obviously Japan needs to be in NEUTRAL territory to speak frankly with N.Korea. China is obviously not neutral, far from it.

Posted in: Democrats aren't buying Trump's shutdown-ending 'compromise' See in context

I'm not a Republican and I'm not a Democrat. I support both, depending on the issue at hand. In this case I have changed my mind. SOME parts of the US/Mexico border NEED a wall. Whoever disagrees is just plain and simply wrong. Period.

Posted in: Trump proposes wall-for-DACA in bid to end U.S. gov't shutdown See in context

This whole 'wall' thing is a bit confusing. No matter whose side you're on (Dem/Rep), both make good points. However, unfettered illegal immigration in such large numbers will not make ANY country stronger. The US has PLENTY of its own citizens who are in dire needs and with people's taxes going to support those in dire needs from neighboring countries does not and will not help The US, and only helps in weakening it at this point.

I think fix what's broken and put a hold on allowing so many to enter at this moment in time and once things are in better shape in our own home we can start helping our neighbors, too.

For now, $5.7 billion dollars doesn't seem like a valid reason for Ms. Pelosi to warrant her refusal to budge on this shutdown. Yes, President Trump is not a nice/easy person to deal with but she doesn't seem much nicer/easier, either.

UNBELIEVABLE...SAD...

Shame on South Korea for acting this way, 73 years after the war ended.

Ruining the future relationship with their best neighbor for another generation. And now for feeding this disease to their desperate prison-state neighbor to the north.

History is a mirror that Japan should look in it.

While we're all looking into mirrors , how about China look in the mirror and see what it has been doing to its own peoples' human rights.

Posted in: Shiseido Japan’s same-sex kiss ad wins gold in Epica advertising awards See in context

Shiseido's creative director Masato Kosukegawa..

He also thanked the short’s director, Shou Yanagisawa, and all the artists involved in the project. The film was intended to reach out to young people, and show them the strength that makeup can lend them “in this confused and divided world”.

"in this confused and divided world"...

And whom are you referring to as being confused Mr. Kosukegawa, the two women kissing or those who are not completely for making this the norm?

One bit of advice for when you go back to racing. Make sure to slow down and NOT speed up before entering curves :)

Awful, sad.

NRA may now suggest that doctors be armed as well..? And and while we're at it how about the patients, too.

This never ending cycle of violence/shootings is really not a laughing matter but a disgrace.

Almost confused with ALmost. To build a house doesn't require appliances, only after built it.

Oh, Akie. Thank you for that totally nonsensical comment.

Posted in: Trump says Japan treats U.S. unfairly on trade by not taking more American cars See in context

Foreign-made cars are absolutely unfairly priced here. No question about it and it's not American cars only. German, French and Italian ones as well.

And it's not only automobiles, either.

Those who disagree with this comment are blind to the fact. Or, don't want to know the truth.

I know, there are 'no' taxes nor tariffs for products coming here but why does everything end up being so crazily marked up?!?!? Try building a house and see what I mean. Foreign made appliances are at least double if not triple priced.

Posted in: Subaru recalls more cars, as cheating issue widens See in context

Probably the majority of companies in Japan are guilty, one way or another, of cheating issues.

Let's assume at this point honest ones are the small minority, unfortunately.

Are companies in other countries any better...hmm..?

It would be so very nice to know the truth whether it REALLY is or isn't safe there. It seems impossible to get the facts due to special interests on either side of the issue.

Mr. Un,

There are so many things I'd like to say to you but unfortunately I cannot without my post being deleted by the moderator. But perhaps this is safe to say, if there is a hell be rest assured there's a special place waiting for you.

Posted in: Japan rejects U.N. call to stop returns to Fukushima See in context

If we die then that’s our problem. It’s our land and home. Nobody or the goverment can force people to go back. It’s the people decision to decide to go back or not.

That's all fine and great but is it okay to put young children in a risky place like that? Why would we put our 'land' over our children in terms of priority?
