Posted in: Foreign traveler caught trying to sneak into Japan by climbing down rope from cruise ship See in context

He's too old to be one of these dumbass YouTubers. Perhaps, he was trying to fake his death. Hide out in Japan until his family received the life insurance money and sue the cruise liner.

I wonder how much cash he had on them.

Posted in: G7 leaders condemn Iran, warn of risk of escalation See in context

Israel receives $3.8bn of military aid a year from the US. That's all the support they need from the U.S. The US will never stop funding Israel no matter how it decides to strike Iran.

Operators of cram schools, afterschool clubs, babysitter services and talent agencies would not be obliged to use the system as they are not under state supervision.

Well, parents should demand it before sending their children there.

Posted in: Former child welfare facility worker arrested for molesting girl, posting video on SNS See in context

Japanese interrogation is not torture. It can be long and repetitive but they don't use anger and violence. It is long because they will ask you to tell them you're entire life story. This is used to build a good rapport with the inmate. There is a cell in the police station where the light stays on 24 hours with a camera on the ceiling. This is to observed the inmate to make sure they don't inflict harm on themselves.

Wouldn't the Japanese police offer security because it's a threat to the public? It's strange that no details of the threat are given.

There should be government subsidies for seniors to trade in their cars and also automakers who have profited from this senior generation should make the cars affordable for seniors. There might be a way to install the systems in older cars, but I have no information regarding this.

Posted in: 9-month-old girl being carried by mother dies after car backs into them at supermarket See in context

It should be mandatory for seniors to drive cars with auto collision warning systems. That would have helped prevent this tragedy.

Speed bumps won't help when backing out of a parking space.

Most schools don't ask for background checks in Japan. Especially now with the lack of quantified teachers coming to Japan. They're just happy enough to get a teacher to fill the position.
