And Peru is not the only country where politicians take kickbacks.

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.

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.

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.

I wonder what it looks like when the mouth is smiling but the eyes look angry.

@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.

Let's hope it will not come to be known as University of Chaosaka (from chaos).

Why was a four year old out on a road unattended?

According to local news reports, he was with his grandmother at the time.

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

Moderator: Thank you. That has been fixed.

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.

ANA is now asking that heels have a height of around 5 centimeters or below

So, in plain English: heels over 5 cm are forbidden.

Posted in: S Korean Olympic speed skating champion guilty of sex harassment See in context

I suspect there might be more to the story than what is being reported here. The prosecutors would probably not have requested a prison sentence just for pulling down a team mate's trousers.

Posted in: Man arrested after stabbing police counselor in koban in Tokyo See in context

The Japanese media say that he muttered something about having been hypnotized "and other things which didn't make sense". So, my guess is that mental illness might be involved.

Posted in: Man arrested for stabbing real estate agent while being shown apartment See in context

Did he really think he would get away with it? Real estate agencies have security cameras, he drove away in her car etc. etc. Maybe mental illness is involved?

Posted in: Osaka police officer arrested for keeping ¥10,000 note turned in by 2 brothers See in context

It was lucky that the brothers had each other as a witness this time, because if it had been only one of them, the officer might have denied ever receiving the money. It would have been his word against the boy's, and police officers is usually the ones who the system believes.

Posted in: Coronavirus outbreak sparks harassment at workplaces in Japan See in context

Besides everything else, why does a 73-year-old person still have to be working (and commute all the way from Osaka to Nara) instead of enjoying her third age? Because the Japanese pension system is crap.
