It's not easy to hang a convicted person. There should be many stages to go through, I think. And in many cases, the sentences would be reduced to life sentence or even released if found, the said person is innocent after all.

Posted in: S Korea: Japan must educate its people about World War II See in context

Quite frankly, how many of our younger generations know our participations in WW2? Be it in Japan, be it in Korea, China, Taiwan, the whole Southeast Asia? History lesson is no longer compulsory in many nations, and even if it is, how many of the students really reading it beyond what is expected in exams?

Whatever many of my generations would know about WW2 came from snippets of bedtimes stories or fragments of memories by our grandparents while the grandchildren sitting around during hailstorms because the electricity is out and they can't watch the tv.

In present day, even my nephews and nieces regards Japan occupations in Malaysia and Singapore as second chapter in their history books, not more, not less.

Something like maybe one or two questions for the multiple answers question. The younger generations were born in the world of electronics and the technology, they don't care what happened 70 years before. But that doesn't mean that we shouldn't let them know what happened in the past. We need history to try preventing future mistakes. And it's not wrong to learn the history.

I've got a friend who, upon hearing my experience in Japan, pointed out to me, that he hated the Japanese for what they done to his families during the occupation. I told him, my family might be spared, but we might just be a little lucky. Tht's all. Fact remains Japanese forces went and occupy my country. But should I be bitter about it, I don't see the reason why.

The Japanese people I've met were not like what my parents, or my grandmother used to tell me about. Every country in this world should learn what their leaders subjected their people to especially when it is about their relationships with the other country.

History lesson should be about facts as it is, not glorified beyond comprehension or glossed over to cover the heinous act. You want what people really feel about anything, look up for anthropology books. Or try to look out for those who were there when it happened.

I think it happened in every country. There are bound to be some politicians who would rewrite the history and purposely skirt the vital part just to serve their political purpose. I do wonder what do they teach in Japan on their history and their position in WWII.

Altough there are nothing the present could do about the past (like changing the city course of history or the outcome of decisions made) the least we could do is to acknowledge it did happened. Apologise if it was deemed or expected for, but both parties need to move on too.

One can't inflict the burden of guilty on the future generation for what has been done by their fore fathers. We need to see it that those mistakes would not be inherited and repeated. In the past, with such primitive weapons, many super powers of the world, including Japan, made quite a large scale of damage to the invaded nations. Imagine with state of the art weaponary and latest advancement in tactics and warfare, what would the damage be,if countries decided to wage wars against another, because of the past sins? Because of the old grudges, intensified with the lack of care by the other party?

As a citizen of a nation once colonised by the west as well as occupied by Japan, albeit briefly, I do watch the latest development between Tokyo and Beijing over the island. And it does concerns us, as we are depending on world trade between the said countries, not to mention the other issues entails, should disagreement escalates to conflicts.

The fact that there has been an occupation by the Japanese troop and there were also war crimes done, are something that cannot be denied. Yet, we, the current generation need to address it without getting too emotional and carried away with ego and what not. Just my two cents

why I always read this in JT? seriously. I mean, in every society people would have some women who would face post natal depression after giving birth to a first, second even 5th babies. But only here I would read mothers who kill their own babies like very other day. If not this, I would be reading about some boys or girls who bullied someone in school or neighbourhood. what all these news pieces telling us? This is one of modern countries which am sure have the state of the art medical systems. Is there anything that the society or authority doing about all this?

And it took them the third child dead for the authority to take action? Third time a charm? The first one might have been an accident, but when the second child also found dead, surely the social security people should take note and do something about her. Clearly this one is sick in the head. And if she is sane, I wonder if she has some diabolic tendency. Having children a hassle? What kind of attitude is that. It is a hard work, no doubt. But when she said hassle, it's like someone shoved the children into her unwilling care, instead of she's getting pregnant as a result of her own action. If it's too much of a hassle, go have the ovaries removed.

Posted in: Police officers searching for ex-Aum fugitives failed to recognize them during 2006 visit See in context

I wonder how or why the police went to see the couple on those two occasion. Was it a door to door, random search or was it on tips buy the public. If it was a random search, what was the bits of information do they have with them. Was it some decade old photos of the fugitive or photos that has been digitally enhanced to give some ideas on how they might looked like after decade long. Unless they opt for plastic surgery like that guy who murdered that British woman, some little tricks on how a face would look like with different hair cuts or specticles or other things might give slight ideas. But then, if it was on a hunch or public tips, I wonder how the intelligence works in Japan. Don't they have people who works undercover or something to investigate?

if they hate men (boys) staring, just wear something that is not low cut or not using sheer fabric. the very reason a blouse is low cut or made from sheer materials is to flaunt what is there to flaunt.

in the bigger picture, everybody has to play their role, however small. neighbours should alert the police if they suspected there is abusive behaviour next door, police have to go and investigate (that is their job to make sure it was not some random calls made to smear people's name), families need to extend their help for those who had married out and the society has to be vigilant about abusive behaviour and how people is being treated amongst them. it can be done, although not overnight because same thing might happened to our family

stipend, that is sad. but then again, the same goes with other Asian countries I think. tokyokawasaki, I take it you must be a foreigner, judging from your story. must be really hard when the authorities have stigma against foreigners and one can't be always running to the embassies to get help. however, I strongly believed, irregardless what it is, and who the person are, as long as the foreigners living in a country follows the country's law, there is no reason for the authorities to close their eyes on crimes done to them, even if the culprit is local. law should be colour/race blind

one thing, don't you find it funny, we keep on reading news on police flashing his manhood to school girl, pouncing on them, auctioning off their uniforms and what not, when the real work that they are supposed to do were not done. oh! don't forget, one even took a wooden sword from the kendo dojo in his office to replace the missing evidence

Thank God nothing happened to you, Tokyokawasaki since the police would only take action when the crime DID happened. It goes the same in some other countries as well. in My country years ago, police would act the same, until the lawmakers have to make new laws on women and children and the police would act if there is a report on spouse abuse. it is still a long way to go, but at least something. do they have some sort of half way house for those seeking help in Japan?

sixaces: he is a man with a badge and uniform. he is a person who is supposed to uphold the law and the integrity of the force and people trust them for taking care of safety of people. and am sure, irregardless of what people said about the force, he wasn't just picked up at random, given the uniform and whatever weapon deem suitable and let lose in the street. the force must have invested in training them not just using those weapons, but also the law that they have and must upheld and enforce.
