I have autism and I find it senseless the lots of people on here saying the "mentally unstable" should be locked away. This woman claims to be schizophrenic, it's not even proved. But jumping to conclusions before proof is the typical hysteria from yellow journalism and its followers.

In my 27 years of life I've heard so much of abuse of children in Japan that doesn't surprise me, it's disgusting. Abusing a child is BEYOND cowardly.

There was a case which deeply disturbed me, that of Yukio Yamaji who as a minor murdered his mother in 2000 and was then released in 2003 just to rape and murder two young women. He was then sentenced to death and hanged. These laws helped him end two more precious life at an age in which an individual clearly can differentiate between right and wrong.

The Ghosn case is an international embarrassment for the Japanese govt. and judicial system. I hope justice be served to those who helped him escape.
And remember this well-known saying "You have nothing to fear if you have nothing to hide".

Helping someone escape from a judicial process is a crime, for those asking what Japan is asking for. Simple as that.

5-months-old ... what the hell ... I can't make a full remark on her because I don't know her mental health or if she's suffering from post-pregnancy stress, or things like that. All I can say is murder-suicide is selfish, cowardly.

prioritizing them over daily activities and other interests leading to significant impairment in health, education, work and other areas.
I'm 27 and that's exactly what happened to me, I ended up dropping out of nursing career. I am now overcoming it, but I was addicted to Team Fortress Classic, a 1999 videogame. I love to play games but I know it gets worrying sometimes.

Poor little girl. I am amazed how, intoxicated or not, these so-called men who abuse kids always take out their, anger, frustration, whatever on a child. Why don't they go out to the streets and find somebody their size to fight?

RIP. This death shows the cruelty of some regimes in the world. A father deprived of seeing her daughter again. Just horrible, disgusting. I have no words. And remarkable that he did not promote racism in any form. Respects to this man.

Funny how they use the COVID pandemic to oppress HK people. It's important for the U.S., UK and other countries to maintain support for the HK activists, from Joshua Wong, to the whole Demosisto party, and to the CHRF organisation and its leader, Jimmy Sham, who was brutally attacked last year. Also, never forget professor Benny Tai and his Occupy movement. So many to mention, all worth of respect.

Ouch!, that is bad luck. Although, now seriously, police should look into those who are using this boy for these issues.

Oh he is nearly my age (I am 27) and how a person can enjoy the sexualization of little kids is beyond my imagination. Perverts like these leave me speechless.

I only regret his mental health issues will spare him the death penalty. He did such a horrible act of evil.

What this misses is why he did this cowardly thing. Not very manly of him, regardless of the motive.

I know I shouldn't laugh at this, but this news was partially funny to me. Though disgusting in its nature, funny at the same time.

To anyone out there wondering on suicide I'd like to say that everything has a solution, except death itself. I was once desperate and thought of no escape, then there I saw the light. Suicide is no option. :-)

Some nurses are unwelcome at restaurants they usually eat at. Some are rejected by taxi drivers.
The nurses, both assigned to COVID-19 patients, were staying at hotels to protect their families
Fear is the worst enemy of mankind, irrational fear of course. It makes humans to show the worst of themselves. Thank you for the thorough report. It's sad. For other reasons, I was also bullied in my life (27 and with high magnification glasses). I think, again, that fear, and above all, misinformation (which is huge in this pandemic) and ignorance are the second enemies in this scenario.

I find it amusing and sad how many have got away blaming "mental illness". I'm not saying this woman is not mentally disordered but I think that the definition of insane defence should be limited to those who, due to mental illness, cannot differentiate right from wrong.... She called police. She knew she had done something wrong.

Reading the whole news, from storming the apartment, to tying up the victim, to sexually assaulting her makes me feel enraged, I'd love to have 5 minutes alone with him. Sexual violence disgusts me like no other crime. It's despicable and this "man" deserves severe punishment. These people have no recovery, no cure. He'll do it again if possible.

Violence, murder are not healthy ways to deal with stress. I may understand she has stress, now that does not excuse a murder. The poor baby had no fault you are an incompetent parent.

Naoto Nonaka, a professor at Gakushuin University, and specialist in comparative politics. "He may not like it, but he has to work with her to make the Tokyo Olympics a success."
The least one can expect is unity in times of a pandemic, beyond the Olympics, both Koike and Abe should set their differences aside and behave like adults, not spoiled brats over a joystick of a PlayStation and who gets it.

Kohei Inagaki, 28 [...] "I may not be notified of my partner's health condition and may not be able to be involved in making decisions on treatment."
That's just shameful, a man loving another man who cannot make decisions as of his most beloved one's treatment is just shameful. Japan needs a lot of work in regards of sexual minorities and I think that the PM's wife Akie Abe attending the pride parade is not enough. Love is love, in Japan, Ethiopia, Palau or anywhere else.

While her mental health must be considered it is not a full excuse for murder either. I myself suffer from a condition and it never crossed my mind even crushing an insect.
