Posted in: 9 referred to prosecutors on detainee's death at Aichi police station See in context

This seems to be something wrong with police and immigration officers in Aichi prefecture

Those who fail to get in Tokyo are assigned in far flung places like these. No surprise there.

Posted in: Hamas and Israel exchange more hostages for prisoners on fifth day of temporary cease-fire See in context

Good reporting here. You often see people citing that number as women and children, not minors like it’s actually referring to.

Because pro-Palestine terrorists likes calling 17 years and 11 months old terrorists as "children".

"Setting off 1,500 fireworks in just 30 minutes would cost over 5 million yen ($33,000),"

5M yen only? That's surprisingly cheap.

In the UK, 'an air source heat pump usually costs around £10,000. A horizontally installed ground source heat pump costs £24,000, on average.' 

I don’t understand why it’s so expensive there. It’s just an aircondition in reverse, plus a defroster. It’s 60,000 yen in Yodobashi!

Democracy is exercised only through election. The fact that majority of the people elect autocratic candidates is a sign that Democracy is alive and working.

Iizuka’s compulsory vehicle liability insurance will pay the compensation once the court’s sentencing is finalized.

Now we know who made the call. Or who owns the insurance company.

Posted in: Parents arrested for shoplifting by stashing items in baby stroller See in context

Police said the couple are suspected of shoplifting items for recycling on at least 10 occasions since last October.

They’re probably going to blame all the unsolved thefts in the past year to this couple.

It’s one thing to be an armchair critic for sports or politics. But to be one for a war? That’s just despicable.

I know people who voted for him don’t want to lumped together with his “base”. But that’s just wishful thinking because same they obviously believe all the lies he sputters.

If you’re a Trump voter, you’re a MAGA. No exception.

Posted in: More Nihon University football players suspected of cannabis possession See in context

Japan, on the other hand, has been winning the war easily without much effort or cost. The life style of the addicted does not and will not gain much respect in Japan.

Just because you don’t know it doesn’t mean it does not exist. Just recently, a 700kg of meth shipment was intercepted. Who in their right mind will ship 700kg meth in a country if they don’t have anyone to sell it to?

but at the same time if a child is born IN JAPAN to Foreign parent he or she are NOT considered Japanese .

Especially when you pay taxes as, or even more than, Japanese people.

Imagine your tax being used to put Japanese kids to school, but your own kids cannot. Such injustice.

Now, the corporations and capitalists are called leftists and the blue collar people and laborers are the right wing.

Posted in: China seeks equal visa treatment from Japan after COVID See in context

Sound not fair for China, while Japan can just book their flight to China and do whatever they like.

Because there’s no reason for anyone to want to overstay in China and there’s a million reason why someone would want to live illegaly in Japan.

See here, they released him because he PROVED INNOCENCE.

The correct and just way is to release him until he is PROVEN GUILTY.

This is something Japan Injustice System apologists will never understand.

Not everyone has the money to escape to Lebanon.

Death penalty on a confession and single evidence that appeared a year later? No wonder judges in Japan’s Injustice System are called stampers.

Except still blaming him for the woes that gappen to them four years later.

He’s a Professor at AIST, not a researcher. These media talks like he’s undercover or something. He has multiple publications and has contributed to the institute more than most Japanese ever had.

Maybe he heard some made up charges are being cooked for him by Tokyo prosecutors. Better safe than sorry. Only Ghosn can pay to be extracted away from Japan Injustice System.

This is so funny. Dentsu DID the corruption WITH IOC. I guess this is punishment for pleading guilty.

Nevertheless, Dentsu had too much power. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

In Japan, you'd have to join the military and be granted access to a shooting range before you can have access to a rifle and shoot people.

Can't say the same thing for some "free" country.
