Posted in: New arrest warrant issued for gangster on death row See in context

Some of these death row or life in prison criminals have done a lot more evil than what they were ever prosecuted and sentenced for and will never confess to. So many unsolved murders and or missing persons are probably their victims. For example, Ivan Milat was convicted for the murder of several hitch hikers. But it is believed he probably killed many more that have never be found in the various locations he worked.

If he's a minor can't the police also charge him for being in a licensed premises, or am I missing something here?

It appears she has already promoted two defence strategies... the mentally incompetent and the beaten wife/girlfriend scenario, the latter of which has proved very effective in many domestic murder cases.

The police arrested him on suspicion.... Did I miss something but why did the police suspect him? Just because he was an ex employee?

If he gets charged and convicted regardless of the punishment he will have a record. Then if he gets caught again I don't think the punishment would be lenient at all.

Thanks Sam that's most probably the reason. Surely though as you suggest digital documents should mean the end of these statutes.

Statute of limitations... I can appreciate such a thing for very minor offences but any criminal offence should have no such thing. For example some of these corporate and governmental fraud cases pocketed millions to the offenders and though now the evidence indicates that these people are as guilty as sin and have lived a life of luxury, they cannot be prosecuted because of this act. Similar again to rapists and child molesters.

Posted in: Japanese men take out 'groper insurance' against false accusations See in context

On a different but similar subject I was once accused of a terrible crime by a unknown young woman I didn't do or have any such knowledge of. I professed my innocence to no avail as the mob around me immediately assumed I was guilty and proceeded to take their justice out on me. Yes I got bashed. I later called the police who attended but couldn't find the culprits. The police said to me "don't worry about it, some evil young women do that just for their own fun and twenty years ago when she said you did that crime she would of most probably been 3 or 4 years old and would of never known". Well that didn't help me being covered in blood, torn shirt and humiliated...

Regardless if the girls were willing or not and if backed out when it became known still does not excuse the teacher. He is in a position of trust and should know what the system expects from and should be professional enough to avoid that situation.

Anyway I have you an up vote for expressing your thoughts...

Teachers must have a duty of care for all their students. Not just educational but moral and a respectable authority figure. These two have disgraced and abused that responsibility regardless if the students were willing participants or not. Immature students need guidance from what should be a responsible and trusted adult and not some creeps out for their own satisfaction.

Surely a supermarket would also have CCTV...and would be able to provide a better description than that.

Just speculating here sorry but we have no idea how the baby was conceived, could be something much more sinister than the lack of sex education with another young person. If so, it goes a long way as to why she didn't seek help and the family and her kept the whole matter quiet....

"holding Platinum Elite Plus status with Garuda airlines", there must be a lot of money in it and he's a professional smuggler having already been arrested in Australia. Maybe he became overly confident and didn't bribe enough airport officials this time.

This is just a weird, unprovoked and wanton crime. It doesn't fit with classically safe Japan reputation.

It was just before dawn....

A young lady walking home at that time and beaten by two strangers who happen to be out and about at that time who didn't try and rob or rape her.

Just really weird and there must be something more to this story.

A good news story and I'm all for people who truly want to kick the habit. But those who don't want to? Please people remember that drugs destroy lives, not just the user but the people around them, the families, the friends and the people that may have had a crime committed against them whether it was assault, robbery or a vehicle accident by the drug affected person.

Golden week in Japan sounds very similar to Songkarn in Thailand, just don't try and go anywhere unless you are prepared to queue, be stuck in traffic and probably pay a premium price for transport and accommodation.

Posted in: Accused groper who jumped onto train tracks to escape arrested See in context

I recall going to lunch with a lady acquaintance in Osaka one day. During the lunch I knew she was not feeling so well and we weren't really hitting it off as she was saying I'm sorry but I shouldn't of come down from Nagoya and wasted the train fare. When she went to the toilet I slipped a few thousand yen into her breast jacket pocket she had left on the chair as a gesture to cover her costs of travel.

When we departed company I said to her to check her pocket. She said there is nothing in it. I then pointed to it and said please check it. Again she said there's nothing in it. Then I touched the pocket... oh that was a mistake and she started yelling "you touched my breast, you touched my breast!". I just looked at her in disbelief and walked away. About 15 metres away I looked back and she was holding the money I put in her pocket in her hand.

I felt ridiculous and had no intention of groping her but also felt somewhat guilty and embarrassed... if police had attended I would have pleaded not guilty...

Posted in: Woman dies after being bitten by her own dog See in context

I'm no dog expert but have owned several of them and different breeds. Luckily all my dogs have been good and have never showed any sign of aggression towards me, my family or guests.... but strangers do not get a warm welcome. I do know all dogs have the ability to attack at times and some breeds more than others. If an unprovoked dog (Pet) attacks someone in a private or public place then that dog should be put down regardless of how much that dog is loved by its owners.

I think this is a common sense approach at last. Oh yes the Overly Politically Correct may find Something wrong with it but it is clear that the current visa system has been severely abused for cheap labour and rather than filling skill shortages actually increased unemployment.

The new format appears much slower to respond and load. Maybe too many ads and a bit more difficult to navigate. Out of 10 I give it a 6, where the old version was an 8.

Thanks Borax and goldorak, I didn't realise they were illegally parked. But how do the authorities know they were abandoned bicycles? I would be somewhat upset if I parked my bike and went to pick it up later, or the next day and found out it was gone (confiscated). Here people park their bicycles anywhere, chained of course.
