Yet, to something this little innocent baby girl, the government is more concerned about the economy than health of the people.

Hope to translate a saying correctly; "Better to have thousand culprits free than to have an innocent wrongfully convicted".

People like Tomohiro Kato, Tsutomy Miyazaki and this one have no place in free society. But i am ambiguous as to the death sentence. It will quickly end his miserable life.

Sad news. I will never understand the underlying cause of murder-suicide. Suicide is wrong, now, why try to take someone with you?. Hope she recovers to at least understand this senseless and sad incident.

This occurred in January?. Also, please why call him a man, abusing a 1-month-old little baby girl is what makes him anything but a man. Hope the little one recovers and has no scar psychologically and physically speaking.

He is a selfish individual. Needs a fine to set a precedent.

This makes me sad. Suicide is never the option. Solutions are found everywhere, even more at his age.

Easy to judge from U.S. mindset where children move out at 18 (or most of them). In Japan it's not that way and you'll have people in their 30s living with parents. Not to judge Japanese culture. And murder or attempt to it is always wrong.

Well-done. Abe had to get the message. Looking forward to 2021. The Games are Japan's. But not now.

Mine was scaled down due to the 2009 swine flu outbreak. Freaking diseases. Hope this ends soon.

Funny how people easily fall into his own hate world by calling him "sick". He's sane, he's pure evil, nothing else. As for the death sentence itself, I respect Japan's legal system.

Uematsu is an evil man and the verdict will undoubtedly bring closure to many. But also, "family shame" over disabled people must be addressed in Japan. There's nothing no be ashamed of.

This is an act of selfishness. And money. People and their health ranks at the bottom of the list for Abe.

Posted in: Crew on virus-hit ship had close contact with infected passengers See in context

Many things to comment. First, regardless of how reckless it sounds, it shows the bravery, loyalty and selfless spirit of seamen and crew members. Secondly, it shows how disastrously the government led the efforts to contain the virus within the vessel.

 where he kissed them, licked their tongues and fondled the lower parts of their bodies.

I know news are news, but is that necessary?, I mean, what the hell is wrong with this excuse for a man. Two little girls, gosh, what a sick, deeply sick mind. I focus more on the little girls' recovery from the horror than the would-be punishment this savage deserves. Regardless of his old age.

Posted in: Japan says state visit by China's Xi postponed over virus See in context

The world's second- and third-largest economies have a fraught relationship, complicated by longstanding maritime disputes and Japan's wartime legacy.

I am sure people like Joshua Wong, Ivan Lam, Nathan Law, Jimmy Sham, etc. can testify on why the world should take a stance on China apart of maritime disputes. However, I am fine with receiving Xi. Bad relations lead to nothing but misinformation and prejudices.

These news particularly affect me. And as said by @Chip Star, people should learn the ability to deal with anger in healthy ways.

Posted in: Japan to close all schools until early April to control spread of virus See in context

I have no medical field education and can't opine on whether it's a good measure or not. I just want to say that news such as this proves me even further how vulnerable we all are as mankind. The 1918 Spanish flu seems to be so distant and at the same time so close. We've advanced almost nothing with some illnesses. Hope this ordeal ends soon.

Posted in: Japan defends cautious approach on coronavirus testing as 7th death reported See in context

"It isn't good to do tests just to ease public anxiety,"

I partially agree since I am all against creating panic. This is not a Titanic-like situation, the ship is not sinking. However, I also believe that if not taken seriously, it could cost way too many lives when it's easy to simply comply with public demands on information and prevention of the virus. Anyway, the govt is never up to the people's real wishes.

Abe has been piling up pressure from all kind of scandals. The healthiest thing for the Japan and Abe himself would be him stepping aside.

@JJ Jetplane, you said you run or lift weight when stressed, and I agree and that way should it be to relieve stress!, I play football when stressed. I am tired of reading of people blaming stress for their crimes. Senseless.

It is nice to actually see a royal advocating for world peace as this news say. While not a royalist... I've become at 27 years of age respectcul of such figures. It means a lot to some people and I am sure some affected by he virus will find encouragement in his words.

Posted in: Man admits responsibility in fatal abuse of 10-year-old daughter See in context

"He repeatedly abused Mia when he had something that disturbed him and relieved his stress by doing so.

I will never understand how people can "relieve" stress by torturing, abusing a child, a little kid or whoever it is. I mean, I do other things, I play football, I go to the gym, shouldn't that be the norm? His remorse maybe genuine, but that does not excuse his little daughter's death.

Posted in: Death penalty sought for man who killed 19 mentally disabled people See in context

He's a monster who chose defenseless people. He's a coward as well. I will not gravedance nor celebrate his sentence or eventual execution as I don't rejoice over anyone's death, but I will certainly not shed a tear for him.

Posted in: Man on death row for killing 3 people dies of illness See in context

Death is the ultimate escape for these people. But what those against capital punishment don't understand, or willingly are against it and I respect it is that those executed can see when they are executed that they are finally paying for their crimes. Leaving them to die in prison gives them the opportunity to think that they did nothing wrong.

Posted in: Drug influence on man who killed 19 disabled people negligible: doctor See in context

"Uematsu is sociable but an exhibitionist who strongly seeks praise from others

Only a loser like him would praise his actions, that's first of all.

He has low resilience to stress, and has trouble controlling actions which arise from strong impulses,"

I also suffer from severe stress and also have impulses, it happens mine are compulsive writing in a personal diary and washing my hands repeteadly, I know it's irrational, but at least I don't hurt anybody. Those are not excuses either.

Finally, I am not a judge to say whether he deserves or not to be hanged, what I am sure about he's guilty and fully responsible for these heinous murders.

Extremely regrettable is the government lack of action over the years before and during Abe. Incredible sad, hope she found peace in some sort of way even as twisted and disgusting the minds of those dictators are.

Posted in: Man on trial for killing 19 disabled people says he was serving society See in context

Uematsu's mental competency has been a major focus of the trial, with the defense saying he was suffering a mental disorder triggered by marijuana use at the time of the attack. Prosecutors argue he was mentally competent.

Blaming marijuana is like blaming videogames, it has nothing to do with a homicidal mind, a really sick mind, and I'd like to clarify that when I say "sick" I mean in the sense of moral values, not illness. Most mentally ill people don't do anybody any harm. It's funny and amusing to see how his lawyers try to save him from the drop alleging mental incompetence when he killed his victims for that. What a loser.
