Posted in: 17-year-old boy assaulted after asking man to stop smoking on train See in context

I totally approve the boy for telling the adult to stop smoking in the train which is illegal. But maybe MAYBE he could have avoided pushing him. The number one rule for self defense in such situation is staying calm and try to de-escalate the situation by all means. Try staying and calm and then joking, telling a compliment or whatever just to destabilize and then run away when you can. I know it's not easy and was maybe almost impossible in the situation, but that's what we should at least try. And then at the station you go to the police and report the smoker. We should never try to replace the police. You see an illegal situation you go to the police or the person in charge.

As for why others don't intervene: the problem is it's always easy to critic once you know all the facts afterward. But when it's happening you often know absolutely nothing: do these guys are yakuza? do they carry knives or even guns? Who started the fight, who is wrong or wright. Are they friends who got mad at each other and if you try to stop they will both go after you and tell the police you started it? All questions you could get while thinking should I do something? And 17 vs 28 is not such a huge difference and some people look older other look younger, it's not like a 40 yo beating a 8 years old kid.

just my 2 cents.

Was it a road accident or a planned murder? Did she hit a car by mistake or did she wanted to hit hit it on purpose of killing? If like the title says it was an accident, the sentence is crazy wrong!

But why does this article doesn't even explain how it was discovered that the gril's story was true and the man story false? Each one has his own version but the proofs are not explained enough in my opinion.

Here in Canada it's pretty safe but I don't think a young guy punching another in the face and asking for money and then leaving would never be the suibject of an article in the journal...

That judge must be too used to deal with people who spend time in prison, 9 years fur such a horrible crime is not enough! He destroyed the life of that girl and of her family and friends forever. He should be in jail for life.

Posted in: Coincheck may be unable to reimburse customers after theft See in context

To answer those who says crypto is a ponzi scheme and not surprising to be stolen because it's crypto... Just compare crypto to what's it's trying to replace: cash! Is it different with cash? Is cash a ponzi scheme too? Is cash too dangerous to own because it can be easily stolen???

Yes you can get stolen but you have to know what you are doing and you have to take precautions!

First you chould never leave huge amount of crypto on any exchange. Then you should learn how to make a cold wallet. If your crypto is in a cold wallet with many copies hidden at different places you can't be stolen.

Yes crypto is a lot more complicated than cash and if you don't understand it stay away or you could be greatly disappointed...

Posted in: A-bomb survivors want Obama to meet them, apologize in Hiroshima See in context

What the hell is Obama going there if he is not to apologize? With the bomb in their hands there was a million other possible way to end the war without killing so many people and launching 2 atomic bombs on civilians. Targeting civilians always a crime. So if the US comitted a crime in the past the and never apologized, it has tobe done one day or the other anyway.
