Let's hope the Japanese government heeds the lessons of western Europe and doesn't start allowing the terrorists ("refugees") to immigrate to Japan.

Posted in: Man gets life in prison for murders of 2 people buried alive See in context

So he gets away from the death penalty because somehow the woman he owes money to pushed him to murder her?

Please read the story again and then correct the above sentence.

The 30 million yen mentioned in that quote is equal to around five years of flood insurance premiums.

Not true. No insurance company charges 6 million per year. That would be 125,000 yen per week.

"My home was destroyed and it would cost 30 million yen to rebuild it."

You could build a brand-new house for that! Ridiculous.

you can drug someone without an autopsy being conducted.

Autopsies are very rare in Japan; only performed for less than 10% of deaths.

One of the most common elements in all these stories is kids; people have kids when they cannot afford them. It is very irresponsible.

Posted in: One of the arguments given by people who are against the death penalty is that it doesn't deter serious crimes such as murder, for example. Do you think the possibility of being sentenced to life in prison deters such crimes? See in context

If someone murdered one of my loved ones, I would feel happy knowing they are dead. I am not allowed to carry out murder by myself (though I would, if it were legal), therefore I have to rely on the state to do it. The death penalty is a good thing for the kind of human detritus that murders innocent people. Bleeding-heart SJWs can go and have a cry about something else.
