Why do news websites nowadays make entire articles out of tweets from a few random nobodies?

Posted in: Office cluster pushes Tokyo coronavirus cases to 6-week high of 55 See in context

“Unnamed office” How useless.

I am sure people who work there and associated with that company know it is the cluster office. If the name gets out, idiots will be heading there to vandalize it and spread slander about it. The same reason if you get Covid, you hope the neighborhood doesn't find out.

Posted in: 18-year-old girl arrested for not paying ¥160,000 Tokyo-Shiga taxi fare See in context

I ask this because we were involved in something similar (unfortunately) where a customer didn't pay, and it was never classified as a criminal case but instead just a civil suit. Police were never involved.

It is a criminal case. There have been similar stories on here a few times about passengers skipping the fare then getting arrested.

Looking forward to going back to Koshien Stadium but a little weary especially the way things are there being packed in like sardines.

Otherwise, why in the hell would anyone stay?

Not everyone is cut from the same cloth. Mind control and feeling of low self-worth can be at play here. I am just happy that it was it was finally reported and the woman is still alive. It could have been fatal.

Posted in: Store staff stop talking to customers because of coronavirus; some hope change is permanent See in context

As a foreigner here, I actually like when staff talks to me about baseball or how I've been because I feel they are treating me as a human and not some alien that probably can't understand Japanese.

Posted in: 21-year-old man arrested for confining children aged 2 and 1 in room See in context

Police said that at around 6 p.m. that night, the children’s mother tried to call Hashimoto and when she couldn’t reach him, became worried about the kids and called the police. 

He didn't answer the phone so she called the police? Sounds like she didn't trust him enough in the first place to leave the kids with him. Glad the kids are safe.

Posted in: Man arrested for filming up woman’s skirt on train platform See in context

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.

Posted in: Atlanta officer who shot Rayshard Brooks charged with felony murder See in context

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.

Posted in: Man arrested for trying to molest baby boy mistaken for girl See in context

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?

Posted in: European lawmakers chide Japan over parental child abductions See in context

 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.

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?

Posted in: BTS fans match group's $1 million donation to Black Lives Matter See in context

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.

Posted in: Anger at new police abuse videos as U.S. protests eye weekend See in context

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.

Posted in: Obama steps out as nation confronts confluence of crises See in context

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?

Posted in: U.S. police officer who kneeled on black man's neck charged with third-degree murder See in context

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.

Posted in: National Guard called in to respond to Minneapolis violence See in context

“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?
