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

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?

Posted in: Overly straightforward phone fraud prevention poster goes viral See in context

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.

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.

@admin: sorry, but there is no Tokatsu Ward in Yokohama. It's Totsuka.

Posted in: Japanese firm investigated for allegedly bribing Vietnam officials See in context

Unfortunately, bribing has been the only way to get a contract in many parts of the world, no matter how good and competitive your product is. In some places it is done more than in other places, but it happens even in Germany or Scandinavia, for example. It's a sad reality.
