@do the hustle,

Japan has a mental health system? Weird! I didn't think they had one. I have been diagnosed with Mild Depression by U.S. When I went to a Dr. in Japan they said nothing was wrong with me. A family member of mine has some mental issues (She cant throw anything away, and has to keep everything, always full of stress for no reason, can't properly communicate thoughts/feelings, has depression)and when she went to the Dr, the Dr. just said nothing is wrong with you, your husband is the problem.

Well, this guy MIGHT get 30 minutes in prison. He didn't kill the woman, and was streased out because being a teenager is so rough in Japan, so he is off the hook. In Japan the sentences are not harsh enough. In fact he might be home today by dinner! Maybe this punk needs street justice, sinve there will be a lack of Japanese Gov't justice.

How do you expect them to widen a small road that has no space on the left or right? Please explain, and enlighten us how this is possible.

@strangerland,

Please enlighten us with a solution to remove millions of guns? America isn't the size of Japan. It is much bigger. All of you complaining most likely are not American, and or living in America, or even lived in America. Pretty much if you don't live in America or are a American Citizen, your opinion is null and void.

@Mister X,

Yes that will work because banning guns from society also implies that law enforcement is authorized to take guns away from criminals besides the mass shootings on a nearly basis are not the work of criminals but of adepts of the NRA and the 2nd amendment.

Guns are made with the sole intent of killing people so get rid of the guns and less people will be killed.

Guns are already banned in the City of Chicago. "All residents who purchased and registered their handguns prior to January 1982 were allowed to keep their weaponsChicago became the first major city to enact a handgun freeze in United States history". however there has been 1800 people shot as of August 26th 2019. Police already do take guns away from criminals. In fact, in the state of New York, there was a time when it was legal to stop and frisk anyone on the street. However it was declared unconstiutuional, and was stopped. So, with millions of guns in circulation in the US, please tell me the plan to remove ALL guns from all American Citizens.

Yours Truely,

A prior concelaled weapons permit holder, until I moved to Japan.

@Mister X

Get rid of the 2nd second amendment, ban guns out of society and consequently put an end to the mass shootings on a nearly daily basis this isn't exactly rocket science people.

Yes that will work because criminals won't carry guns or use them if they are illegal. In Chicago alone. 9,600 illegal firearms were seized in 2018. So, I guess making guns illegal will work the same way it does for drug users. Drugs are illegal in America, so NO ONE uses drugs, ever!

I have realized that the number of crimes in Japan is usually aimed at a family member, by another family member. There are rare occasions where a "random" person is stabbed and or assaulted by a complete stranger.

I am not Japanese, not a Japanese Citizen, but I live in Japan. I work one day a week (I am a disabled Veteran) and I am expected to pay into a system I will never get money from. I will have to depend on my VA Disability, and my Social Security from America (if that is even around in 20 years).

The issues in the Straits have been manufactured by Trump. Therefore America should have the decency to clean it up, not beg for the rest of the world to do it for him.

You know this has been going on well before Trump right? You know how I know this? In 2003 I spent 10 months patroling the straights, assisting in assuring ships freedom of Navigation. I was in the US Navy on the USS John F. Kennedy.

My thoughts go for ANY Country that does not want to help in securing the safety of the straights.

I think if a Ship is attacked or taken in the Straits, the ships Country of origin needs to involved with protecting all ships. If a German Tanker gets seized, then to bad fkr Germany. The US or no other Country should help get the ship back since Germany doesn't want to assist in the security of the straights.

@yaburu,You are 100% correct. I take my daughter to the bus stop every day and pick her up. I always give her a hug and kiss before she leaves and when she gets home. I am the only American in my neighborhood, and my actions shock everyone. We always tell our kids how much we love them.

Posted in: U.S. Marine, in custody for assault, also charged with attempted murder of woman See in context

@darknuts.Don't forget as well that a Military Member will get double Jepordy. When a servive member commit a crime off base, they are punished twice. Once by the regular law, wherever that may be, and then once again by the Military. This guy will be punished under japanese law (it's obvious they are going for some serious time as per the attempted murder charge) and then he will be punished by the Military. He may be court martialed as well, and be busted down to E1, and forfeit all pay and allowances. I have seen alot of people get punished twice. However, that is what you get when you commit a crime and bring discredit upon the Military, and the United States.

@stormcrow

Your comment made me laugh. Raise the driving age?!? YES! In America (where I used to live) we get our Drivers Learners Pernit at age 14. I was 16 driving from state to state to visit family (alone). I have noticed in Japan that teenagers are way more immature in Japan, compared to American teenagers. I fully suppprt rasing the age to aquire a drivers license, in Japan. In America we are taught to be independent and are not taken care of by our parents until they passaway. HUGE culture differences.

Is this the Carrier that would be used to defend Japan if the US left Japan, like all of you have kicked and screamed "Get out" on the last post about Trump wanting to leave Japan? If so, Gooooood Luck with your Helo's, and your F22's. ( oh wait, the only F22 made in Japan, crashed). Sooo, you do need the USA? Looks like it to me! Don't worry, young grasshopper! We will stay and help protect you. We will provide you will Missiles, and F22's made in the USA.
