Posted in: Japan pulls out of Copa America See in context

I saw this on the newsbar on CNN and was a bit surprised. Bad choice, in my opinion. People watching the matches would help lift spirits, especially since the Japanese team has been doing so well lately (winning the Asian Cup and being ranked so high again).

During the Kanto Earthquake of 1923, rumours that Koreans were "poisoning the wells" led to the brutal massacre of thousands of Koreans, Chinese, and Okinawans. Even the police helped. There are pictures of dead bodies being poked at from this time. Simply disgusting.

Anyhow, spreading unfound rumours should be punishable as a crime. It should be more serious of a crime than slander or defamation.
