No info about whether the boy was wearing a helmet... Most likely, not. I am not sure if it could have saved his life, but helmets should be made mandatory for cyclists. Anyway, this is sad beyond words.

Quite unusual to set him free on bail so soon after such a serious accusation. Several months in custody is usually the norm.

On old-style suspended sentence would have been appropriate.

If the visibility was low, both drivers should have driven EXTREMELY carefully. Either one of them or both of them didn't. And the result is this tragedy.

Posted in: Japanese airlines to offer discount to people with mental disorders See in context

Many people with the above-mentioned mental disorders live on a meager disability pension, so they can't afford to travel by plane without thinking twice, so I welcome the measure.

Not locking the doors when you leave the car and can't see it, even for a short time, is not very smart.

So, the apartment owner did not check the apartment after she moved out?

Probably couldn't stand the thought of having to go back to school and be bullied again day after day, I guess. Poor boy, RIP!

He should not have been punished at all. That paragraph in the law is obsolete.

Anybody who kills somebody, be it a family member or a stranger, because of household duties cannot be of sound mind.

I educate the drivers the hard way by keeping walking on the pedestrian crossing even when I see that they have no intention of braking to let me pass. I've had a few close calls, and if you see that I am not posting here anymore, you know why.

So what were the mitigating circumstances that made the judges give him seven years less that the prosecutors had sought?

What I meant above: the police officer's injuries are not life-threatening although the perpetrator hit him with a hammer several times on the back of the head? I am glad it turned out that way, though

struck the officer on the back of the head several times. 

After using a hammer? I am glad it turned out this way, but how is that possible?
