Kind of late to do it now, I think.

So, why didn't he shout for help while he was taken to the ATM??

No need to write the victim's name.

I hear that many elderly people still do not lock their doors. Time to do it, I guess.

Why would anyone downvote "Happy birthday and stay safe"??

Posted in: Stalker uncovered after committing hit and run while driving victim’s car See in context

Good job by the police, but I wonder if the police would have investigated that much if the owner had been a middle-aged man known to have a drinking problem.

Posted in: Man arrested for kidnapping woman, demanding ransom from her mother See in context

There is probably more to this story than what we get here. Otherwise, why would a person from Yokohama go all the way to "kidnap" a person in Sendai, travel with her on a train, etc. etc.? Did they know each other? That is the first question the journalist should ask.

"Summarily suspended"? Like, fired? Or just temporarily suspended?

His pension was probably not enough to make a decent living. RIP.

Can this be right? Just a one-meter wall?

To be exact, he was the half brother of the former prime minister.

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?

Posted in: Caregiver arrested over sexual assault, death of 80-year-old woman in nursing home See in context

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.

Posted in: 3-meter pet python found after 2-week search in Yokohama See in context

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.

Posted in: Mitsubishi Electric to cut CEO's remuneration over recruit's suicide See in context

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

Posted in: Ex-top prosecutor to face summary indictment over gambling See in context

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.

Posted in: 40-year-old man arrested after attacking father with hammer See in context

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.

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.
