Throwing a tantrum add no credibility to the Japanese Justice system in the eyes of outsiders looking in.

All jokes aside a death especially a childs death is a tragic thing no mater the cause. But it's fair to point out that child fatality rate in Japan for children under 5 is half that of the US. When feeding mochi watch your littleones closely.

This is a terrible act that was commited by a 14 year old boy. An the victim thou lucky to be alive will forever have to deal with this experience. Here's hoping for a quick recovery physically and emmotionaly.
Now to the adults in the room who are wondering how such a thing can happen, it is important to understand how brains develop. It's believed that the human brain doesn't fully develop until around age 24. Thou most of the brain is developed by then the one part that lags is the frontal cortex. This is important because this is the part of the brain that is believed to be responsible for the erratic behavior bad decision that children and young adults make. Including such compulsions and horrific acts that are committed from time to time by young people such as in this case.
This is yet another reason there is an age limit before someone can be tried as an adult.
Something to think about before getting the stakes and pith forks out.
