Posted in: Actor Iseya gets suspended sentence for cannabis possession See in context

I have ended up betraying the trust of people, and caused worries and trouble

Oh no, I wish possession of other more harmful substances was equally punished, e.g. alcohol and tobacco. As for me, you didn't cause me distrust, nor worries nor trouble. I am more worried about real criminals.

Certainly no winners in this case. A disturbed person dead and the life of a probably decent man ruined for having taken a life.

Posted in: Man to be indicted over deadly arson attack on Kyoto Animation in 2019 See in context

This man's selfish motive always revolted me. Did he think he was the centre of the World?. Couldn't he handle the frustration of being turned down [his novels] by the company? We all suffer from frustrations after all and none of us go setting people ablaze. However, if found to have a severe mental illness, I think he should be given special sentence, but never allowed to set foot in free society again. I am very ambiguous to the mental illness defense, and always have been, ever since I myself suffer from a developmental disorder (autism related) for the whole 28-years of my life and forever, and again, I don't go around killing people. What a hard case for the justice, and how many innocent and talented lives ruined! Horrible, sad, and never to be repeated.

Posted in: Woman gets 9 years over starvation death of 2-year-old daughter See in context

could have been regularly abused as multiple bruises and cigarette burns were found on her body.

If I actually wrote what I think of that abuser, my comment would be moderated, and I understand it. But moderator, and to every reader, know that I'm full of ugly words towards the person who did that to a 2-year-old toddler girl. The cruelty shown towards defenceless people like this little girl and the Funato case as well disgust me, how you can be so cold-blooded astonishes me.

Posted in: University student arrested over sexual assault of elementary school girl See in context

OMG, I agree with @Simon G, she was assaulted for such a long time. What a monster, disgusting man. I hope the little girl will get all the psychological support to overcome this and forget that so-called man for the rest of her life. As for him ... well, you know.

Posted in: Japan, U.S. defense chiefs confirm Senkakus come under security pact See in context


I certainly don't want to become Chinese, I just wanted to make the point that old men never go to war, they send the younger like me while they hide in secured bunkers. As for the Senkakus my position is clear, and I agree with you on that. Cheers. :-)

Posted in: Japan, U.S. defense chiefs confirm Senkakus come under security pact See in context

It's so utterly ridiculous to quarrel over a piece of land. Look at Nagorno-Karabakh, over 5,000 killed in a conflict over land. While I support territorial integrity of every country, I am all against sending young men to fight and die for a piece of uninhabited land. That includes me being 28. My opinion may not be popular among nationalists but I respect them, so please, respect mine.

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.

Posted in: Suga, Abe attend memorial for father of N Korea abductee Megumi Yokota See in context

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.

Posted in: Tokyo ward assemblyman apologizes for remarks against LGBT rights See in context

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.

He committed his crimes in the 1970s, convicted in 1999. So long. Regardless of your position on the death penalty, it's a waste of a life... and of tax payers money.

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.

Posted in: Jail term upheld for mother over fatal abuse of 5-year-old daughter See in context

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 hold tremendous differences with him, but I find it shocking to wish ill upon ANYONE on Earth. I believe in the dignity of human being, and that includes not sinking low and wishing ill on someone.

Posted in: 81-year-old woman arrested after decaying body of husband found at home See in context

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.

Posted in: Woman arrested over death of mentally disabled son See in context

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.

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.

Posted in: 82-year-old woman dies after being stabbed as she gets off bus See in context

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.

Posted in: Pilots on trial in Turkey over Ghosn escape released from jail See in context

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".
