Posted in: Fake schoolgirl prostitution extortion ring busted by Tokyo police See in context

I had no difficulties understanding this article and it was reasonably straight forward to me. I think we are putting too much emphasis on the precise English and forgetting the message. ... The guy picked up what he probably thought was a young prostitute, an offence in Japan if he had traded money. Then he was blackmailed, another offence regardless if the blackmailers were paid.

This is the act of a very perverted nutcase. Predatory and primitive by nature. I wonder how he managed and got along with people in his everyday life.

57 is not old... yes a really stupid thing to do and I'm trying to speculate why a company man would do it and put his career on the line.

Ah yes, Japanese people and alcohol! Plus probably broke from all the drinking, really drunk and really, really hungry..... still hard to fathom, but has anyone else here ever done something really stupid when they were really drunk?

Posted in: Mother arrested for murder after 4-month-old son dies in attempted murder-suicide leap See in context

We do seem to hear a fair bit of this type of crime here. Maybe it is more common in Japan than other countries.

Also does it appear that places like Saitama, Chiba and Ibaraki are more overly represented in crime statistics?

The boy must of known the man if he warned the girl to run. Instinct should of made her look what she was to run away from. Was there a description of the attacker?

This is bizarre reasoning. Poor fish and it makes me wonder how they ever survived hundreds of years ago when there was little to no pollution.

I thought Wales played well, but the wallabies were hard done by with many decisions.

The refereeing needs to definitely improve.

Posted in: Hunters, police search for bear spotted multiple times in Sapporo See in context

@ Ex tanker.

One is small and lethal the other is big and can be lethal.

But if we must compare sizes, then how about removing crocodiles, that would be an awkward task though somewhat different to a bear.

Posted in: Hunters, police search for bear spotted multiple times in Sapporo See in context

It is sad that they wish to kill the problem rather than remove it. We have extremely venomous snakes here in Australia which can often get into people's properties and houses. The policy is to call a snake catcher who finds, captures and returns the snake to the wild.

It is possible that the snake could return, find another property or even bite a person wandering around, but they are not destroyed here and there are no shortage of snakes in Australia.

Posted in: 1 cyclist killed, another injured by car going wrong way on national highway See in context

No memory of causing the accident and he was three kilometers down the road with the evidence all over his car.... does the no memory escape clause actually work in Japan?

Curious that the brother in law who actually committed the murder got life ina Thai prison in 2016 and she got the death penalty now. I wonder which one got the better deal...

Posted in: 54-year-old woman arrested for abandoning body of mother in Fukui See in context

Pocketing any pension may of happened, but it is not mentioned in the article.

Do the Hustle offers another explanation of cold heartiness which would also be a major factor.

Her father died in January and she moved out, then her mother died not long after. Maybe the expense and sadness of her father's death then her mother's was all too much for her so she just walked away and ignored it?

They both had debts to some type of hosting club. Just shows the type of people who would get involved in this type of activity.

Maybe a silly question for this forum, but why was the murdered husband and the wife's surname different?

The whole story has some big gaps and question marks in it. With the information supplied here I would be very reluctant to speculate on what probably happened. There are two sides to every story and the information here is vague at best.

Many UNI students are often on a tight budget, so they were most probably just chowing down on a bit of roadkill.

Statistics released on a previous post about foreign crime in Japan indicated Vietnamese were the highest offenders I recall. So I'm guessing due to statistics that the suspect is probably Vietnamese ;-)

@strangerland lol

Probably but I think there could be a bit more to it... e.g. were they too selfish to not care about the major disruption they will cause, or did they want to cause a major disruption to give themselves some type of notoriety?

Posted in: Man's body found on Tohoku Expressway in Saitama See in context

If this was suicide and I'm assuming it was can anyone explain to me why so many people decide to do it on a motorway or a train line where they know they will cause a major inconvenience to so many other people

Posted in: Man arrested for stabbing 62-year-old mother to death in Aomori Pref See in context

I appreciate and respect all the comments above and definitely don't sympathize with the offender. But I do know long term unemployment and living off the family being dependant upon them for support is an extremely difficult situation to escape from for many, many people. My son was in a similar situation and trying to get him out of it without overly criticizing him and forcing him into more depression was a precarious situation. Long term unemployment is a mental and attitude illness I feel and criticizing the person worsens the situation which can develop to the state which happened here. I got my son out of this spiral just by constantly letting him know he is good and valued always and thus making him believe in himself again, but it did take quite some time.

I'm with Harry on this one and going to wait for the facts to come out before assuming who is right or wrong.
