Yubaru, literacy check - man arrested over 9 year old STEPSON's. There is a different mental attitude to someone of not your gene pool. Not that it was the main reason to sway the culprit towards this crime, I suspect.

Reassuring news. Soon he will be able to contribute to resolving this mystery - whether so many people perished because of someone's insanity, or because of someone's insanity fueled by a dishonourable theft of one's creation for commercial purposes.

LIterally hundreds and hundreds of account created to support a single agenda of definite groups - Russians, Japanese,... Iranians; anti-american statements everywhere: accounts that have zero participation in commentaries under Japanese news, but always there for the news that mention a state they are hired to wage informational war for/against. Golden age of scum.

Except when it happens to you, Strangerland. Whether you decide to worry or not is up to you, but the possibility exists. Not being a native Japanese, however, excludes you (and many others) from half the possible reasons to become a crime victim in Japan.

Seeing how he turned himself in, he must have felt not the way he thought he would after assaulting someone. After some time in a mental institution, provided he is cared for properly, this one youth might return back to the society. Now, what to do with numerous other youths going off the rollers each minute...

Posted in: Why do some people mock others' taste in music and dismiss groups that they don't like as being crap and having no talent, etc, as if they were an authority or arbiter on musical excellence? See in context
If I was asked to compare in quality hard metal song which is basically sound on decibel level of 2 chainsaws running through each other, and any song GACKT has created, I might just feel insulted.

Japan is not benefiting from this farce. The LDP and their de-jure leader Shinzo Abe, however, are gaining more popularity and justification in re-militarizing the nation. In the eyes of an average Japanese citizen Koreans are doing something real stupid and while at it they are also insulting Japan, damaging its goods, destroying its flags and causing economic strain for Japan. This is a good propaganda material and LDP is using it quite well. Unfortunately, many many others are either just as complicit in sewing discord between the two nations, or outright stupid in playing into Abe's hands.

Should a veteran truck driver with 30 years of... truck-driving, be appointed as a transport ministry head? I do not think this is how it works.

Well, start being talented then, girls. Or at least work hard with results to show to everyone. Take a look at the Japanese art industry - many prominent female directors. Because they can at least back up their barking okay this is getting removed.

This should have been a life sentence. Would send a message to every imbecile out there with the license, even more so to the truck drivers.

...but another madman (or rather a man-child, madman is too big for his likes) got slapped with it, as well as world-wide proven to be a nuisance and unfair player. That's a yellow card. Hopefully he does not go as far to receive a red one, as many others might suffer in the process.

I mean, I will not be directly invoking -ism against old people...
But literally only Koizumi-not-the-actor-one Shinjirou is the only young person on that photo, and in that revamped cabinet I guess. Now stay with me - this is pathetic. The old boys gang is in control, and Shinjirou is there only because of the social context surrounding him - he is a son of a previous prime minister (with considerable experience and education to back himself, naturally) and boasts a lot of appeal for an average Japanese person, as does his father. This is a clear misuse of young people in attempts to forward old gangs agenda. Shinzou Abe is bursting another bottom with every move he makes.

When I notified that there was a purse (forgotten by some less than intelligent female being, who rushed to the bus) on a bench next to a bus station, two police guys nonchalantly walked to it, looked it over and called someone else, blocking the bench off for others. Not the smartest bunch, but at least they did do something.

Educator, I have mixed feelings on how to react to this third Koizumi.
If we look at it from the distance, this is a rather simple story for some series. Silver Lion's son is now a valued apprentice of a political rival, who is nothing like his dad. He is now pursuing the political career under the wing of the LeaDing Party, which is rife with scandals and questionable moves against the nation's well-being. Can Shinjirou Koizumi-san live through the rigid world of Japanese politics and still be worthy of his father's ideals? Will he live with them in heart, or will he become corrupted by the puppeteer his father once fought on political stage, with the whole world as witnesses? To be continued...

Record number of reports of bullying also does not mean, surprisingly, that it is becoming less of a problem, less severe or more contained. This is a story from one school only. How many schools Japan-wide have at least one unfulfilled child's life on their hands? How many rooftop fences were the last thing the abused, ignored children touched? Everyone has to take a step towards no-bullying society. If some are unable, than the less-corrupt majority is able to instate laws of both protection and sanction. In theory. In Japan? ...

It is important to understand that people who are desperate or insane enough to abuse (their own) children would never consider something like a prison/capital punishment to be a deterrent. It happens on a whim, a spike of negative emotions, or has long become trivial for the culprit to even think about whether it is bad and what it means for the culprit (the abuser). This all prison-ing for abusers is really not a solution and does not affect the issue significantly. The only plus is that the people who keep reading these news become more aware and one day the mass will push through solid, necessary legislative to protect children and their to-be abusers, but right now this is just a seemingly never-ending cycle. The problematic is without a doubt more complex andprofound, both culturally, legally and philosophically, than the average "user" of this news outlet can handle with their mind. "LAYLA LEYLA DEDLEE DEE, Bring me rope and find me tree". And still the children are suffering.

Seems more like a complex case of society pressure rather than family issues. The mother might have been feeling worthless and unable to live up to the standards of this age, fearing laughs from her children and other "competitors". It is most regretful such mindset still occurs in these days (in case that is the case). But at least she does not have to worry about being seen as pathetic ever again.
