I think in these cases, female cops should be in charge of inspection. If I was a female, I wouldn't be happy if I someone took a picture up my skirt then the police "investigate" the pictures one after another.

The cop kept asking him how he got to the car park, he said his friend drive him there. The cops did not actually catch him DUI. IF they had stopped him for a driving offence and found he was DUI, punishment would be in order; but they had no concrete evidence, and being drunk in a car park should not be cause for summary execution.
The dude wasn't in a car park, he was in a drive-thru lane with the engine running. If he was in a parking spot in the first place, nobody would have cared. No one can judge how he got there until the street surveillance comes out, without a doubt during the trial. If he complied with the police, no doubt he would have been seeing prison time because a DUI is considered a parole violation.

Kanamaru picked up the baby and placed him on his knee at a toy department while the boy's mother had stepped away. A patrolling officer noticed and made the arrest, the police said.
How do you "step away" from a one year old?

I was barred from seeing my kids while I lived in Japan and they only lived 5k away from me.
and until now, the mother has been brainwashing them that you are a horrible person and for the children to never meet you. I like stories of kids wising up as they reach adulthood and seek out their lost parent. My brother-in-law(Japanese) divorced and lost his daughter 13 years ago. Both him and daughter lived only a 5 minute drive apart.

But the majority seldom take notice of things such as this.
This can be said about everything in every country. It takes a few to put the word out to the majority about what they noticed. It isn't like the majority are glued to NHK on a weekday afternoon.

Seriously, stories such as these still baffle me.
Forgot child was in the car and women that didn't know they were pregnant as they deliver a baby are my top 2 baffling stories.

I attended a friend's wedding in one of the southern islands of the Philippines a couple years back. There were tons of dogs running around and even through the wedding ceremony. This type of story makes me think twice about petting the dogs that ran up to me there and in other Asian/Pacific Island countries.

One concern is a potential conflict between the Olympics, starting on July 23, 2021, and a revised schedule for America's National Basketball Association.
I wanted to attend some of the basketball games but have a feeling the U.S. team might end up being college players like the old days.

But she doesn't have Japanese citizenship and faces being separated from her son and husband if she travels to the United States, where her mother is battling cancer.
I don't know the full details of this woman and whether her support is life or death for the husband and son. However, I think she needs to bite the bullet and go see her mother. The husband needs to encourage her to go and adjust his schedule to be able to take care of the son.

Japanese ignorant racism and elitist exceptionalism strikes again.
NHK made an ignorant and stupid video but let's call out an entire 126 million people. Your wife, kids, girlfriend(s), co-workers, boss are all Japanese too. Did you ever think about that?

Case in point, Naomi Osaka was bullied hafu till she won a Grand Slam title, then suddenly she’s Japan’s “It” girl! I remember that there was a Harvard University graduate thesis paper on the anti-Africanism of China. Then, there’s my friend, who’s Black, who married a Korean woman. His wife was disowned by her family for marrying him and, in their words, giving birth to a “black monkey!” They even said that if she had to marry a non-Korean, why didn’t she marry a white guy, then at least the shame of her marrying a foreigner would be glossed over by her producing “cute” babies. If that isn’t systemic racism, I don’t know what is.
I don't remember Naomi Osaka being bullied for being half because she mostly grew up abroad. I did hear that her grandfather who didn't speak to her mother for several years because she married a black man which is bad in itself.
I also know a Dutch guy who had a Korean girlfriend for over 10 years and he proposed to her in which she said yes. Once her parents heard, they threatened to either disown her or she marries a random Korean guy of their choice. She chose her parents over the only man she ever loved. There was a documentary about this very issue and Hines Ward told about his trauma with Korean racism towards him growing up half-black/half-Korean.
BTS is the same group that wore a nazi cap, said the "n" word and wore a t-shirt glorifying the Nagasaki atomic bomb(Japan is the country they got their break). Their management is just trying boost up their public relations.

Not all rioters are actual protesters
Not all police officers are bad.
Not all white people are racist.
Not all burned down/looted businesses are white-owned corporations.
Not all business owners are perfectly fine to lose their business and life savings as long as justice is done to the officers.
Not all looters are black.
Not all BLM members are black
Not all Democrats care about black people.
Not all Japanese are xenophobic.
Not all Japanese have mental issues.
Not all Japanese care less about the coronavirus.
You can't defend one side and then point the finger at another saying they are all like this/behave in this manner.

Obama’s average approval rating was 8 points higher than Trump’s, and his highest was 18 points higher than anything Trump has gotten. Despite Trump supposedly being responsible for the greatest economy in the history of the universe.
Approval rating is a fickle system to judge by. Both George HW and W had higher approval ratings than Obama by average.

If looting Rolexes, (stupid anyway) clothes from Chanel and torching Benz dealers is a sign of homage to the dead man, then I despair for the human race...
It should pay for the family's PCR tests after people contract covid from congregating together. Look for eBay listings to increase big time these next few weeks.

A question for all JT posters complaining about the secret service and national guard protecting the White House and president: Wouldn't all countries be doing the same in protecting their president under similar circumstances? I am neither a heavy Republican, Democrat or politics lover like everyone here seems to be. Just answer the question. Is it abnormal for countries to protect their president?

This is why I vote Independent while everyone else here and in the U.S. follows 2 parties(Republican and Democrat) like sheep. One party calls victims "thug" and should be shot. The other Democrat(governor of Minnesota and mayor of Minneapolis) does nothing either and takes days to speak out, let everyone destroy the entire neighborhood and endanger lives. They are using this and thinking of strategies to win votes for the upcoming election instead of anybody doing anything.

“We’re burning our own neighborhood,” said a distraught Deona Brown, a 24-year-old woman standing with a friend outside the precinct station, where a small group of protesters were shouting at a dozen or so stone-faced police officers in riot gear. “This is where we live, where we shop, and they destroyed it.”
During the Ferguson protests, most of the people burning and looting shops and restaurants weren't even from Ferguson. Many of them came from as far as NYC. Do you honestly think Minneapolis residents woke up and came up with the bright idea to burn down their neighborhood?

I have never paid attention but I wonder if they already make cold-type masks like they do with towels and blankets.

My wife and I last night delved into Terrace House last night by reading articles and interviews from past staff and cast members of the show. Among things I read was that the filming crew only shows up 2 hours per night at the house or when cast members go out. The cast members' dialogue is unscripted but the topics are brought up by the crew. Extra money is given to those involved in a spat or kiss.
The show is heavily edited and leaves out many things. So the episode where Hana yells at Kai. It leaves us at that leaving the floodgates open for all the losers to attack Hana until the next episode and after that. For all we know, they made amends after the spat. Terrace House thought they probably had a good scene and had people talking after. They should have realized the consequences.

Apparently, many here are.
People here may only think that way because it makes the headline news. Other Asian countries lose many per year as well but it doesn't make top news like China losing close to 1,000 per year drowning overseas.
I am not going to judge the population by seeing a few but from many of my snorkeling/diving trips abroad, the Asian Pacific tourists that I have come across, Japanese were far better swimmers as many Chinese, Koreans and Taiwanese were using arm floaters to look down at the fish.

A few years ago, my brother-in-law hosted a Twitcast show which is basically like a Podcast for Twitter. It gained popularity and he was getting a tons of messages per day. You would have those that went overboard with their love for him. One lady sent a case of Yubari melons fron Hokkaido worth ¥100,000+. Then there were those sending him hate mail with those even telling him to kill himself. All of this craziness over a show talking about anime.
Yeah this show is about those looking for love. However, most use it as a stepping stone to get into show business. Many of them still appear on TV even after they left the show. As other members have left in the past due to crazy amount of hate. The show, if they aren't already, should be preparing the tenants for what may happen with the cyberbullying and threats. Another things celebs due to battle the hate is to delete their Twitter or Instagram accounts.
Oh yeah, I just heard after this news, people were going after those who bullied her on Twitter/Instagram. Many of them quickly deleted their accounts but not before their names and addresses were leaked on the Internet. Cyberspace is a cold place so people need to expect consequences to poor decisions.

I remember this one clearly as it was near where I once lived. I understand that these school walking groups are made for childrens' safety but when they return home, some kids still have to walk a ways by themselves as they love down a different street than classmates. If the mom is home, she should be waiting around the group's break-up point. I am not blaming the mother but that is what I would do.

So basically, if the jgovt can't get ghosn, they will go after the others. Tss. That still won't bring him back to japan.
Well, I am pretty sure if this happened in most other countries, help a person awaiting trial/prisoner to escape the country, they would also be chasing after all involved. Do you know of a country that it is perfectly fine to do this?
