Man I am getting the weirdest deja vu. Oh because there is literally a story just like this in the same page.

What is so difficult about either:

A. Wearing protection.

B. Taking responsibility for your actions.

They should do what this guy did to that poor girl while he is locked up.

Occasionally feed him bananas. Wake him at random hours of the morning to yell incomprehensible and irrational things at him.

Such a brave man! Hurting a month old infant. As a new father the thought that someone could even think hurting a child like that is justified somehow makes a knot in my stomach.

Nio: I responded to the matter inadequately. I did not contact the authorities or the school board as I should have and was hoping to keep this quiet. Now that it has come to light I am going to throw as many people under the bus to make myself look less culpable.

This guy definitely deserves to have the book thrown at him. This poor girl had to endure this horrible experience.

As for mom and dad. What's your deal? Look as parents we can't protect our children from every single negative experience the world has to throw our way. It's your job to prepare them for the world. You wanna maybe teach your kids to not climb into the car of strange, unknown men?

Posted in: Elementary school teacher arrested for sexually molesting 4 girls See in context

Any bets as to whether this repugnant guy's living room is filled with manga and anime depicting the rape and molestation of schoolgirls

Blaming any and all media for the behavior of an individual isn’t so black and white.

Next we should be saying video games and movies cause people to turn into violent murderers.

Sick.

Wife and I struggled so much to even get pregnant and this vile person abandons her child because she wants some “alone time”

I hope they throw every book they have at her. The thought of that poor child alone, in pain and suffering. Give the child up. I’d have taken them in. Clothed, fed, cared and loved them all the same.

Unethical? Who cares?

If she was doing this during work hours and goofing off then sure. It'd be the equivalent to taking several smoke breaks throughout the work day. Who cares if she is seeing a couple of guys during her private life.

Japan has been complaining about young people not dating and starting families and here they are chewing out a young woman for doing the very thing they want people to do! You almost got to have your cake and eat it Japan, then you blew it.

Posted in: Man arrested for hitting police officer who interfered with his Pokemon GO game See in context

As an avid player and fan of the game, this idiot is an embarrassment. Even in my community there are members playing that can't seem to understand the idea that we shouldn't be inconveniencing local areas by jamming up the streets. Public safety and normal function of public roads and walkways take priority over catching Pokemon.

I highly recommend anyone on the fence check the game out, but to please do so safely. The dunce that attacked the officer should be punished to the full extent of the law as well. A real trainer wouldn't point their finger at others for their inability. Git gud.

Would love to see a protest against you know, rape in general. Don't see why Okinawans get bent out of shape when a foreigner does it but it's no big deal if its Okinawan on Okinawan. I guess its just people getting on a band-wagon and going with their knee jerk reaction to someone or something they interpret as "different"

I have been wondering a similar thing about high beams. I feel like its the result of cars just having LED lighting in combination with people being ignorant to the fact that blasting your high beams when there is oncoming traffic is frowned upon. Is it really so hard to put together the notion that people can't see when there are 4 massively bright lights in their face?

Posted in: Chinese woman arrested for drowning 5-year-old son See in context

Look I know arguing over the idea of race or occupation being mentioned in articles is a moot point for some. I just want to make the point that mentioning such things, particularly in Japan carries a lot more weight than it may in others.

Company employee found guilty of something? Your company now looks bad. Friend of yours is found carrying illegal substances? Guess who else is getting questioned?

Almost anything that might be frowned upon in Japanese society carries over for huge groups of people even if the act committed is done by a single individual.

Because of that I would appreciate news stories treading a bit more carefully about what is said. Of course there are points that need to be mentioned when detailing suspects and that like, but we need to ask is needed here? Yes or no?

Just to be fair then, articles pertaining Japanese nationals should state they are in fact Japanese then.

Posted in: Chinese woman arrested for drowning 5-year-old son See in context

Suppose there is no reason to be offended at the article stating that the woman is Chinese or not, but it does sometimes come off as unnecessary when certain details have attention drawn to them.

Not even details that are related to race. Sometimes it is a crime or incident and the persons charged will have their company name announced. Is it necessary the article go over the company they work for? Was this a company order? No? So why mention it? Give the name, what happened, where it happened and any other confirmed information.

Sometimes things like race or occupation do not have any reason to be brought up.

Then there are incidents involving Japanese folks too, yet attention to the person being Japanese is never brought up. Should we just assume that the person is Japanese by the name? What about Yuqiong Cai? Sounds Chinese, should we assume she is? Why bring it up in the article?

Posted in: Woman arrested for abandoning dead baby in paper bag See in context

Tanaka, who was arrested on Tuesday, lives with her ​​mother and sister. They told police they were not aware that she was pregnant.

The baby was quite small, dangerously underweight I would guess but how do you not know that your daughter is pregnant? No baby bump? No change in eating habits, lack of a period, nausea? I would seriously question the validity of mom and sis's statement.

It really has to be a "I do and eat what I want!" sort of mentality. I tried whale once and it was awful. I don't see what value eating whale has to offer considering it looks, tastes and feels terrible to eat. There are apparently health issues tied to eating it excessively as well.

Well that is my preference as well. Feel a bit better being able to see the traffic in front of me, but as SenseNotSoCommon said, this woman was drunk so I am not so certain how much good walking in either direction would have done.

From the broadcast footage seen on Meizamashi TV this morning, the incident seems to have taken place on the left-hand side. It is possible the woman was simply following the standard direction of travel in Japan.

I do not understand the deal with referring to this woman as "girl" but it could just be a translation issue. She is definitely in the wrong and should be held accountable for involuntary manslaughter.
