Oh my... whoever's done that, how can you... I mean, a 3-4-year-old little girl is among one of the most vulnerable beings on the entire world. Whoever does that is a coward.

The issue of the abductees goes beyond politics. It's an issue of humanity. A father passing away without seeing his daughter ever again is just plain evil, cruel. Even if she died in N. Korea, as a father, he had the right to hold a funeral, and pay respects to her. I hope Mrs. Yokota lives enough to see something as closure, but I highly doubt it. I can't imagine the hell they have gone through for decades. What an inspiring married couple. May Sakie remains strong.

I am gay and I accept his apologies as part of a very ignorant statement. I find it funny he actually blamed Japan's low birth rate to homosexuals. I am 28 and I am dreaming of earning money by my 35th birthday and have a surrogate mother have my little boy/little girl. As for the rest, it's not worth discussing. I accept his apologies.

especially countries like India and Brazil are really rising on the world stage
Two countries that have people starving to death like India and Brazil deserve a seat?. Wow.

I read Underground by Murakami. Incredible how some people are so morally weak. As for this news, I feel empty, too much sadness involved. From Matsumoto to Tokyo. [including the Sakamotos]

including kissing and hugging her against her will
Repulsive. What does a man see in a little girl? Disturbing. It is a parent's duty to check their children's activities on the social medias. What a sicko.

I remember the case, that "man" Yudai Funato was said to tremble in court. So, a real "man" to take his frustrations out on a defenceless little girl, but when faced with consequences he trembles in court. What a coward. Abusing a 5 yo little girl, whatta ??? is wrong with those two.

She didn't call emergency until afternoon?, what a gross and reckless behaviour. And then you wonder why some people have kids when there are plenty of others who wish to be parents and can't.

I never got how the people who do this deal with the odor and putrefaction of a corpse. Never got it. As for the news, I'd say arresting her is useless, a waste of the resources that could be offered.

Agnes Chow, being only 23, is risking her freedom and liberty to fight for democracy and freedom of everyone in HK. She's worth a prize. May she stay strong.

Twitter, Facebook, and every single online newspaper and social media must understand that they are not more powerful than President Trump. They are going to lose their battle if Trump decides to order them to stop ceasing operation. They will have to move out of America.

There have to be alternatives. I follow closely a brilliant young man of just 27 years of age named Nathan Law from Hong Kong. He recently left HK to stay in the UK out of his safety, and he began lobbying for a boycott of Huawei. It was then when I realised what it was.

I am 27 and I was a special needs student, I have autism, and I can't think of anything that made her feel tired of her own son to the point of killing him. I must also say that it is not specified in the article what level of disability this boy had, but anyway, nothing justifies it. It's a sad.... but repeated story.

Just 30. Life ahead of him. RIP. Don't judge please. It's painful enough.

Oh, I am his same age and I can't believe it. I don't have children because I don't even have a partner but I've always craved for a baby girl. Some get lucky with things they don't value. Put this little girl away from this man.

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.

Since leopards can’t change their spots
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.
