Posted in: University student arrested over sexual assault of elementary school girl See in context

What does “sexual assault” include? What did he do to the girl?

Why are the details of what he did important to you?

Plus, what's wrong with using a manned helicopter to these places? Some can carry quite a load in and carry injured residents out. Something drones can't handle, yet.

A manned helicopter is a $1,000,000 investment so very limited on how many are available in times of disaster whereas drones are less expensive therefore allowing rescue services to have multiple units being able to get urgent supplies to multiple areas within minutes of disaster strike. Great idea on how to use technology in a life saving way.

There are some news articles that the public should not be allowed to comment on either good or bad and this is one of them. JT please remember her family and friends will read the comments.

Very sad to lose a young life this way but is it really the Kindergartens fault or just a sad unfortunate tragedy.

Posted in: Law revision eyed to keep sex crime victims' names from offenders See in context

The victim should also not have their names plastered in the media either. Also in saying that the accused should not have their names published until they have been found guilty. Plenty of cases where an accused has had his/her name published and it turns out they are innocent but due to the publicity their lives are ruined.

Posted in: New Zealand marks 100 days without domestic transmission of coronavirus See in context

The NZ Prime Minister is being looked upon as some kind of hero which yes she may have squashed the virus, but she has also squashed the economy as well. She could have done the same thing but kept industry alive. The unemployment figures are about to explode and she did well in hiding that until after the election.

A better choice is to remove the US military bases from Japan completely, especially Okinawa

I don't like either of them but you don't need to like someone to take sides. SHE is right, either shut the whole country down now for a short time or have it shut down for us with sick people for what could go on for months. Look at other countries that have done it, Singapore, just as densely populated as Japan and they went into lockdown mode, New Zealand, same size land mass as Japan and went into total lockdown for 4 weeks and by week 3 daily number growing has all but stopped. It is possible to have a complete financial freeze, no one pays rent, electricity , loans, nothing. The GOVT can give a weekly benefit to everyone for food only. The GOVt has access to unlimited loans, yes it needs to be paid back but once the economy is up and running again increase consumption tax for X number of years. A better option then losing a third of the population to an early death which would make it impossible for Japans economy to recover.

Posted in: Osaka, Fukuoka to request business suspensions See in context

Whats the point in only 7 prefectures in a state of emergency? Either shut them all down or none. Take a look at New Zealand and Singapore. Complete shut down now for a short time is far better than complete shut down when its too late and could last for months. Give the Police the power to prosecute any public places that remain open along with any non essential workers found disobeying the rules.

Posted in: Firms inventing high-quality masks to battle virus See in context

Whats the point of masks when the virus gets in your eyes and ears just as easy as your mouth and nose? Also when you breath the mask stays wet so any virus will live longer on the outside of your mask making it easier to get on your hands.

The death penalty is to quick and easy. Letting this guy spend his life in prison with other inmates that know what he did will give him a life of misery.
