Not that I care either way but will all the people wanting the base moved to US soil still expect the USA to help when someone attacks Japan?

Yubaru - Why assume it's a murder?

Oh yeah, I forgot. New born babies often commit suicide. (Roll eyes)"

The Baby could have been stillborn. Thus making it not murder

What do they do for NZ and Australia. Apart from the odd visit at the NZ and Aussie taxpayers expense they have zero control over any of our govt's choices. She was a lovely old lady and big respect for her dedication but do these 2 countries need the Monarchy?

There are couples in Japan who are unable to have children and would love to adopt! Why murder a new born baby and spend the rest of your days in prison when you can simply adopt the baby out! I don't understand it.

Faults on both sides here. He would have known her age but she also knew why she was going there and agreed to payment.

Posted in: New Zealand welcomes back first cruise ship since COVID hit See in context

"NZ currently going through record covid deaths, and in fact, the worst such country on a per capita basis."

I have just been back in NZ and was asking the questions on why the death rate is so high. The truth is that someone who has a bad heart, bad lungs, cancer & is 90 years old dies & they tested positive for covid is classed as a Covid death. This is scare tactics by the current incompetent Labour lead Govt to force people into being vaccinated.

2 years of Karma in prison I am sure he will learn his lesson. Other inmates don't like older people harming youths

"after his semitrailer fatally struck a 68-year-old man."

It was almost 3am, dark and his 40' long trailer clipped the poor guy. I would hardly call this a hit and run as the driver would not have known.

She can not be named as she is in her "late teens". Is it not 18 now to be classed as an adult? More like mid teens if she can't be named

I export a lot of product out of Japan and contribute good amounts of tax. I have ceased all exports and sales and will not carry out any more until this govt opens up completely. These half hearted rules are a joke

"Please, 'if he really groped her'? Do you really think there are Japanese women out there trying to get money out of men by accusing them of touching them on the train!"

Yes! It was big news not long after the tougher penalties were put in place a few years ago. And it still goes on today. Please do not think females are all honest and trustworthy, thats just a sexist comment

Posted in: Police officer arrested over groping incident on train See in context

As a Male when I am on a crowded train in Japan I stand with both my hand holding the rails above my head. This way if I was ever accused of this kind of crime the on board cameras will see it was not possible. I am not saying its the case here but since Japan tightened its assault rules on trains in Japan a few years back it started a new way for women/girls who are not as honest as others to make the claim "You touched me" and ask for money in return for not calling the police.

But again before you call me out I am NOT saying thats the case here and if he did in fact grope her needs to be punished.

Both equally the same for different reasons. The dog is more loyal and can be trained, will come to you when called etc. The cat will show signs of loving you and buries its own crap.

Posted in: Gov't to fight damages suit filed by family of dead Sri Lankan See in context

I really hope they win this case. In 2006 I was rejected entry into Japan for no apparent reason at Centrair. The new Immigration centre had not been opened. I was locked in a janitors closet at the airport for 48 hours with no windows and no fresh air. They gave me no food and I was made to sleep on a make shift bed and sit on an old sofa both of which had someone else's blood on it.
