Posted in: Couple indicted over death of granddaughter bitten by their dog See in context

The dog should know better to distinguish between child play and life-threatening attack. If it cannot, it should never be allowed to be near children, unleashed.

A dog is a dog. How can it be responsible for not knowing something? That's like saying the kid should have known not to go near the dog. Sometimes kids really hurt these animals, horseplay or not. They have not developed empathy for animals and see them as little more than toys to be abused for their amusement.

That's rather odd behavior for a golden retriever. They are usually mild mannered and great family dogs. I bet some details are missing here.

Posted in: 67% plan to vote against U.S. air base transfer within Okinawa: poll See in context

You can't compare crime rates between U.S. bases and Okinawan society at large. If you want to compare U.S. bases with something else in regard to this problem, that something must be SDF bases or Japan’s law enforcement body. Or if you want to stick with Okinawan society, then a counterpart in the U.S. for comparison must be New York or Los Angeles.

I don't understand. Why can't we compare the US bases with the local crime rate?

Without having seen the anime, I can say the premise should work well in a live action and western setting. I'm pretty there was already a similar comedy movie done.

Posted in: Man gets 15 years in prison for strangling woman, dumping body in lake See in context

Initially, Iida was arrested on a charge of corpse abandonment after admitting to disposing of the body in the lake. However, he was released from custody because police were unable to find the body despite his statement.

So he confessed but they let him go anyway? So much for confession being the king of evidence. I guess that's only when they want it to be.

And it only took them 2000 years. Well, better late than never I suppose. Kudos to the GOJ for doing the right thing.

People should not be feeding wild animals. The deer population should be kept in check through culling and hunting if there are no natural predators. Deer are prey animals. They breed fast and can overrun the area if not kept in check.

If you're gonna go, just go. Don't tell anyone. I don't believe in preventing journalists from doing thier job. They know the risk. If they get into to trouble, they're on thier own.

Nissan is not just one person. It's a corporate entity. Nissan as a whole is responsible and should pay heavy fines in the billions range for any gross negligence. Ghosn has other shareholders he must answer to as well.

Sad thing is that precious few rap artists are worth listening to at all anymore.

It's like that with all genres now. Let's face it, music went out with the 80s and 90s.

Not accurate. The husband is still obligated to pay child support for minor children even if the wife gets sole custody.

No he is not. The husband is under no obligation to pay child support under Japanese law. Child support and visitation or worked out within the family.

Posted in: Women living poverty face bleak future See in context

Dang!! That’s messed up. If her husband was cheating on her, why didn’t he have to pay her + monthly child support?

Because she got the kid. Such is the 'clean break' system of Japanese divorce. The western system is not much better, allowing women to fleece their ex husbands for a good chunck of thier wealth for the rest of thier lives.

Posted in: U.S. Navy man arrested after breaking into apartment, taking shower See in context

And it's amazing how people here cover him up, making all kind of excuses and even protect him on legal sides. He IS a criminal for breaking in without permission.

No one is covering for him. He committed a crime. We are saying that he needs to be charged for the crime he committed, not some trumped up nonsense. B&E is far more serious crime will call for stricter punishment.

Also, it's not breaking and entering if he just walked through the front door. It's trespassing. Hopefully this guy didn't get arrested on trumped up charges.

And to think, if this guy hadn't needed to use the toilet, he would have gotten away before anyone knew.

I can never understand how people can not lock thier doors when they sleep. I'm paranoid about that. Sleep time is when you're most vulnerable. I simply can't sleep unless I know my door is locked.

As a black male, the same crimes committed by me and someone else may not be handled equally. In Japan, foreigners are the same in the legal system.

So your OK with being treated like crap as long as everyone else is being treated like crap with you? In US you have due process, the right to a speedy trial and a presumption of innocence. Even if you do get screwed over you atleast had a lot more tools at your disposal to defend yourself.

Smith did admit to radio station KTXL that “At one point the police officer grabbed his arm and it snapped back and hit the officer in his chin.”

I'm not sure what the procedures are arresting someone here are but the police should be required to voice thier intent before putting hands on you. Grabbing someone is a violation of their personal space and can be interpreted as a hostile act if it's not expected. I don't think anyone here knows how they would act if someone grabbed them unexpectedly.

Okinawa can never exist as an independent country. As soon as they break off from Japan, China will move in and snatch it up. The moon cannot float freely while the earth is near. Just like Guam and Saipan, it will always fall under the gravitational pull of one of the regional powers. Either US, Japan or China. Take your pick.

Posted in: More details emerge over fatal abuse of 10-year-old girl by father See in context

This girl did everything in her power to protect herself short of running away from home. She went to the authorities and relied on them to protect her. They failed her. Family law in Japan is a joke as they are unable to take a child away unless it's in immenent danger. Yet more proof of the utter incompetence of Japan's legal system.
