Actually if he was arrested how was he out and about to commit crimes two and three - he could not have done that from inside a celll! Think logically!

With all respect, Strangerland, you do not KNOW that he was kept in custody at all.

Domestic violence is not taken seriously in Japan at all, I know from personal experience. I was first abused back in 2001. The cops were more concerned about offending my husband.

@Strangerland - Hope you get to visit SF soon. It is my favorite place in the world. I am so lucky to live here.

Cleo, it is entirely up to you whether you want to take the risks of being in the USA with all our issues. I totally understand. I would say it is a little safer than Seattle, less edgy than Los Angeles, much much safer than Chicago. However, I felt safer in say, Boston. We are not as violent as NYC. Oakland over the Bay is much much more dangerous. San Francisco is a really lovely city. I adore living here. Beautiful scenery, good cool weather, relatively friendly people. Just don't hang out in the TL, or Civic Center, stay to the nicer areas and watch your surroundings. I have rarely felt unsafe in the Presidio, or Embarcadero. It is a city in the USA, what can I say! But I still really love it here, and much prefer it to Tokyo. Happiest I have ever been and my child is very happy indeed. We even have a wonderful and safe Japantown.

I live in SF. My friends from outside the USA won't visit me here, which is more than a little ridiculous. Yes, we have problems, no we are not perfect, but it is a perfectly livable, great city. No one in their right mind gets on the metro - I certainly wouldn't. I either walk or get an uber. Shootings don't happen more here than any other US city. They shouldn't happen at all, but we are not the dangerous badlands that people make SF out to be. We need gun control. This is not an isolated SF issue, it is a gun problem which needs fixing.

This would have helped so much when we were in Tokyo. Absolutely wonderful idea.
