Older people tend to be wiser, as long as they are not mad.
Can we get a source for that data or is that based on anecdotes that old people = “wise”
There are plenty of instances where elderly make critical errors or have a lapse in judgement.
Also, mad in what way? Are you suggesting youthful people are angry and that makes them less credible?

Yudai Funato, 35, was sentenced to 13 years in prison last October for physical abuse and neglect that led to the child's death.
Japanese “justice” at its finest ladies and gentlemen. That scumbag gets to walk among us when he is 48.
Yua was 5. She doesn’t get to live or experience anything at all except the pain, fear and sorrow she felt at the very hands of the people who were supposed to protect her.
Where is the justice in that?

Yet here we have 3,000 and the number of sick is the same? That’s a bad thing, no?

I don't get your pont. The government doesn't pay your wages unless you're central govt civil servant.
First point. I am a civil servant. So they do pay my wages.
As for those that work privately. Private institutions are governed and controlled by labor laws and regulation written by, government. When Japanese labor laws are lacking, private institutions are free to run their racket.
On top of this, the government has done nothing but raise taxes, raise pension costs, raise financial obligations of citizens and nothing in the realm of raising or regulating companies.
TL;DR: It all comes full circle back to gov’t for why the economy fails and fails the people.

Thankfully the girl seems to by unharmed physically.
Vigilance is key. As a handful have said already. Parents and teachers need to be as aware as possible of what their kids do online and who they communicate with. It’s literally all fun and games until suddenly it isn’t.

He was quoted by police and saying he was curious to touch the breasts of a woman he didn’t know.
No you dingus. You’re supposed to say
“I was drunk.”
”I have been stressed out at work recently.”
“I don’t recall.”
Bow deeply and you avoid any accountability. That’s Japanese justice.

Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike said on Tuesday that the coronavirus situation in Japan's capital is improving
Is Koike the Governor of some parallel universe Tokyo that we are not aware of? This universes Tokyo is in no shape or form ready to host an Olympic Games of any kind.

Would you look at that? Just yesterday people were telling Korea and Korean “comfort women” to “move on” because a statue remembering the victims was erected in botanical garden.
I said, “Should Japanese victims of war do the same thing and just move on?”
I said it before and I’ll say it again.
Today the war may be over, but for some people and their families it never really ended. They have to live with it every day mentally, physically or both.
We help those that have suffered regardless of race, creed or the side they took. We learn to move forward in hopes we do not repeat past mistakes.
The real issue here is why did the Japanese government choose to wait so long to help the very people they got into this mess? Probably greed.

All these “move on” people need to understand that the same sentiment could be applied just as easily to the Japanese.
Oh Hiroshima was bombed. It’s time to move on. It’s war it was in the past and it’s over.
Yeah not such a great line of thinking now is it?
Yes it’s war, yes it’s in the past but for some people and their families it is never over. Learning how to move forward in a world that knows what happened and making sure it never happens again to anyone is how we survive.

Health ministry not helpful for foreigners in Japan
Really? That's unexpected. I also heard that water is wet too!
It's like people were saying too. If this is too much for Japan then they may as well call it quits on the Olympics here and now.
