Posted in: New Zealand unable to keep supermarket attacker locked up: Ardern See in context

Why was he allowed to live in NZ after his student visa expired? I guess it did, or was he on a student visa for 10 years?

Completely unnecessary to publish the name of the victim.

"Zviad Gogotchuriwho" Is the name correct?

Posted in: Man being chased by police jumps from elevated bridge at Tokyo’s Shibuya Station See in context

Misleading title. Because he didn't jump at all, he FELL from the elevated bridge. The video shows it clearly.

Of course, the snake did everything it could to escape from that tiny wooden box it was being held in. Wild creatures shouldn't be kept in cages or boxes for the pleasure of humans.

Cut their pay by 99% for a year. Then they will definitely try to change their ways.

Isn't "one month" and "four weeks" more or less the same thing?

Posted in: 27-year-old man arrested over mother’s murder See in context

Maybe he is suffering from a serious mental disease, and that is why his name has not been made public.

There's often more to these stories than what we get. Mental health issues, etc.

Posted in: Man slashed while foiling burglar in Tokyo See in context

@Jonathan Prin: You are absolutely right. Even if the possibility that he is not the culprit is just 1%, his name should not have been published until a guilty sentence has been handed down. Learn from Germany, Japan.

Unfortunately, all the money he has been awarded, and then some more, will go to his lawyers.

Don't forget that he suffers from a serious mental disease.

Does anyone know why the vaccination will start so late in Japan, compared with the US and Europe?

Posted in: Man arrested after fatally stabbing mother, sister See in context

So, what happened between 8:30 PM and 11 PM? Did the police/ambulance go to the house?

Mental disease, no doubt.

Posted in: Wakayama woman arrested for switching price tags at supermarket See in context

No excuse for what she did, but her pension is probably about 50-60 000 yen a month. Not enough to live on.

What I would like to know is how he entered the apartment. Were the windows and the door locked?

The fraudster who comes to receive the money or card probably looks like the average salaryman you see at the train station, not at all like this guy.

Posted in: Teacher arrested for stealing bag containing ¥1 mil from man in convenience store See in context

Two not very very smart guys: one leaves his bag containing 1 million yen unattended and goes to the toilet, the other one tries to steal it in a convenience store, a place where there are lots of security cameras.

Posted in: 3.7 tons of newly harvested rice stolen from storehouse in Ibaraki Prefecture See in context

Beats me why anybody would leave such valuable goods unprotected. A minimum of crime prevention (a solid lock, for one thing) might have helped.

Posted in: Mother arrested after daughters, aged 6 and 3, die in overheated car while she goes drinking See in context

She was probably worried that she would be charged with DUI, so she went to sleep it off before calling 119.

@sensei258 This isn't Europe. They will most likely be sent to a juvenile correction center, where life is anything but fun.

There is often much more to these stories than meets the eye. The guy might be suffering from schizophrenia or some other kind of mental disease.
