I think the reason why so many foreigners 'support' Ghosn is because while he is being detained and kept under house arrest, all the other Japanese CEO's get away with the same, if not worse acts criminality. They simply bow in-front of the media and that is the end of it. I bet, if Ghosn was given the chance to do that in the beginning, he would have. Whether Ghosn is guilty or not, the blatant show of discrimination is simply too difficult to ignore for most.

This is precisely why my wife and I are considering moving back to NZ. It seems as if this type of occurrence is becoming more and more common here. I hope the families and friends of the victims find comfort one way or another.

Btw, I live in Kitaku Sapporo city. We have power, water and gas. We were fortunate enough to not lose water or gas at all.
It seems easy if everyone was very unprepared for this event.
Many older Japanese people must be struggling. It's quite sad to see so many on the streets trying to buy food at convenience stores.
We hope everything will be okay from here on out. Tremors are okay, but losing power again would be a pain in the A.
