Posted in: TEPCO video shows tensions as Fukushima crisis unfolds See in context

The lying, two-faced, no-good idiots. Telling us all to "not panic-monger" and "stay calm" when they KNEW it had all gone to hell. Discrediting those who dared to question their safety, and lying to the general public as a matter of course. Of course there will be no apologies nor admissions of guilt, just drip feeding little by little.

...and you STILL got on that plane without him, instead of staying, like so many people in miserable marriages do, and left the boy with a man you couldnt stand to be with yourself, then you judge him for being angry?

Your ex is a very lucky lady... I have always had to fend for my younger son and myself - as a foreigner in the land of Wa... And one of the only times I got to see our older son (who was 19 at the time) it was when he "invited himself" into the office where I was working, punched me in the mouth and ran off with my keys - all this in front of my colleagues - (I was fired...) A real "chip off the old block"...

You walked out and left him, at five years old, taking his sibling. What did you expect him to do? Say "thanks for choosing my sibling over me?"

So, Luca, you come home, and your wife has thrown your child out of the window after strangling them, and you would feel sorry for her, allow her to see her children "after treatment", and you would feel nothing but pity? Then you must truely be a better person than I am.

"that a defendant should not be held responsible for his actions only if, as a result of his mental disease or defect, he (i) did not know that his act would be wrong; or (ii) did not understand the nature and quality of his actions—" - Awareness has everything to do with the insanity defence, Luca.

It will all be diplomatic bollocks and happy-speak, so why bother?

I have no desire to have him hung, drawn and quartered, but mentally tortured by his own guilt for doing this, I would certainly hope so, and he should receive a lengthy sentence in prison.

He should absolutely not be allowed to see those children again, and a divorce granted without any contest. I would also hope he would be detained. Some people who are pefectly aware of their actions and the consequences of them, terrorise their families, and do terrible things to them and really need to be kept away from their children and spouses. This man clearly said what he had done to the child, and seems perfectly aware.

You really feel sorry for a man who strangled his own baby, and threw him off a balcony? Seriously? I feel desperately for the children and mother, but this man made a choice to harm his own child, if he is tortured by that choice for the rest of his days, then good. He deserves that much at least. If a woman had done this to her child, would you have been so understanding and supportive, Luca?

I have no desire to hurt this man, but Im pretty sure his wife would very much like to. I wonder how on earth she controlled herself, having returned home to this disaster.

Mentally ill or just a man not able to control himself, Luca, I dont think that will matter a jot to the boy who was strangled and thrown off a balcony, nor to the mother who has to live with the fact that the man she trusted, married and had children with, admitted trying to kill her baby boy. I dont expect him to even get a suspended sentence, but hope that the mother will be able to walk away and take her children to safety away from this man.

He needs a long spell in prison for attempted murder, and should expect to never see his hopefully soon to be ex wife or the children again. Or can a man do absolutely anything to his family in Japan and expect people to support him on the strength of him being a man who is stressed by work and life?

Posted in: Boy, 5, falls to death from 6th floor of Gunma apartment building See in context

How lovely it would have been to wave goodbye to my 5 year old and let him play outside out apartment block with other kids, and my not having to stand out there and watch for hours. Thing is my inconvenience doesnt matter, what matters is that if I didnt go and stayed in my house while he played outside, he could go anywhere and do anything, and anything could have happened to him. As it was I saw when things were getting out of hand and could step in. But that is just me.

Many times I saw other children left outside to play at 3 to 5 years of age, and getting into scrapes, and their parents or a supervising adult nowhere to be seen. Its actually horrifying that anyone could believe that a five year old is capable of caring for themselves for any amount of time without supervision, but as long as it aint my kid....

If a parent cannot be home, due to work commitments, then they hire a babysitter or childminder, it is just what you do. You do not ever ever leave the child at home alone. What is wrong with some people here that they dont step up and be responsible adults. A nation of selfish people with no common sense.

Just as I get to love a flavor of ice tea - grape, strawberry, caramel...it is gone and replaced by something nasty for a few months. Like those lovely strawberry natta de coco deserts in Lawson.

Well I would not let my son, at five run, where I couldnt see him in a public space, Niki. I promise hand on heart I always had eyes on my kids at that age, in public spaces, and within the house I would always lock the balcony with a key, and dead lock the front door. Kids fall over, its part of growing up, thing is I see it exactly when it happens, and can act accordingly, rather than them being where I cant see them, and them having to find me first. If I couldnt see my young children in a public space, and had to go looking for him, I would never forgive myself for putting him in harms way. Its not like snatching, stabbings, and incidents like this never happen, is it?

No screens needed, just a parent to supervise the children. In the end it was his parents responsibility to supervise him, or organise another responsible adult to do so. Their failure led to his death.

Niki, I totally believe in never leaving 5 year olds unsupervised, no matter what. No excuses. No ifs buts and maybe's. Parents who fail to do so always make excuses as to the benefits of not supervising their young and vulnerable, and write off any harm to befall their children as accidents, and unavoidable, or blame something or someone else, when all it would take to make sure their children are safe, is for them to be better parents who put their children before themselves.

This has nothing to do with the apartment building, he should never have been outside playing unsupervised. So many here fail to supervise and protect their children, because they are lazy and its culturally acceptable to do so. His parents should be charged with neglect.

Five year olds cannot make good and safe choices about what they do when they are alone or with a group of other children. Im sure the hen na gaijin, "when in Japan, do as the Japanese do no matter what"-brigade will disagree with me.

Any mother who has properly bonded with her child can totally understand and support this mother's actions.

Bass, this man isnt after visitation though, is he? He wants custody and he wants it in the USA. Not only that he has pursued a case against the mother of his child, leading to her being locked up in prison, and then wants that same child to live with him after he has taken her mother away for her. This woman has not abused her child, just wanted to stay with her, and I, unlike some people here with no maternal feeling, totally understand that. Not so much father's rights, as father's wrongs.

Anna, why even bother? The mother is always demonised in these cases, damned if she leaves and tries to protect herself and her kids, and becomes a victim of character assassination, and damned if she doesnt and stays.

You dont have children, Marie, you have no idea. It is so easy to judge when you have never been in this situation.

Being scum has nothing to do with him being Nicaraguan, and everything to do with him seeing the mother of his child put into prison. After such disgusting behaviour I suspect the only thing the child feels for him is fear and hatred.

I hope she waits it out in prison, they cannot keep her there indefinately on these charges and then returns home to be with her child. I hope he never sees this child again.

Any mother faced with the court system in the US, which has swung massively back towards favoring fathers, and losing their children, would run. I would, for sure. To rip a child away from her mother and her grandparents is not going to be in the child's best interests. If anyone is behaving as if the child is a possession to be returned it is this sorry excuse of a father.

In Japan its not the mother that gets custody in international cases, but the Japanese parent, who is more likely to be the mother simply because fewer gaijin women marry Japanese men, than the other way around.

most courts in Japan give mom custody no questions asked....unless that mother happens to NOT be Japanese, in which case wave bye bye to the kids.

Posted in: Why the increasing number of alcoholic women in their 20s? See in context

You know, the more I think about it, the more I agree with you, Net. Japanese women in general make awful, selfish mothers from what Ive seen. These women in their 20s who go on to have families, down a few bottles of wine with their yoichien friends, neglect their children and cheat on their husbands give all women a bad name. It sounds like you got burnt badly by a woman, Net, and Im sorry I gave you a tough time. So many of them are just looking for a man who earns more than their current spouse to fund their handbag collection, and they dont care whose marriage they split up, let alone who their drinking affects.

..and alcoholic men become fathers, Net, and their kids lose out on a loving and involved father who would rather get lost in a bottle than throw a baseball for them. Both alcoholic men and women have no business being parents.

Posted in: Future cancers caused by Fukushima radiation may be hidden See in context

I was treated successfully for an early stage cancer at the age of 22.

I also have lost 2 people whom I loved very much indeed to cancer. One of whom was in her early 20s, the other a very old friend who died of lymphoma a year ago.

These cancer cases which are going to be caused directly by Fukushima, are going to cause a lot of suffering. Needless deaths and suffering which are going to hit children hardest can not be spun as something positive, no matter how hard you try.

Alcohol abuse destroys lives, not only of the drinker, but also the family who loves that person, or tries to love them despite the idiotic stunts they pull, the vomit left for others to clear up, the wreckless behavior, the lack of care for anything apart from the bottle and how fun others think they are when they drink.

When you roll in at 4am, for the third time that week, puke on the floor, make your children cry, and collapse in a stinking whiskey soaked heap, you are not having fun, you are destroying lives.
