In a country riddled with corruption, a fact rather than an observation, it wont end.

Posted in: Two men arrested for pouring water from apartment balcony onto people below See in context

If you got drenched by a bucket of a liquid, it might not have been water. It could have been urine and faeces, which could give the victim hepatitis. Or it could cause a small child to get scared, run into the road, and get hit by a car. Or an old lady slip and brake her hip, making her housebound for the rest of her life.

I dont see anything funny about this at all.

Having women dress up in School girls uniforms doesnt exactly send the right image of Japan, unless Japan wants to portray the image that it is ever so twisted, which of course, it is. National symbol is a woman in in High school uniform, what a ridiculous country, i want nothing to do with this place, im off!!

Seven and I also have a bank, in which case they may be financial whizzkids making mega bucks. The true sign of a miserbable human being is finding faults in strangers lives. Yes, thats aimed at you Shiuu.

It depends, some kids get bullied, dont tell anyone, and just rough it out. Some kids cant hack it, understandably, and the result is self-harm or suicide. I do feel for the kids who were bullying as i am sure they never truly understood the effect they were having, but they will now for the rest of their lives. Kids are kids so before we know all the details remember that good kids bully as well as downright evil ones, remains to be seen which it was. Tragic all round.

A witness-less crime is a tough one. if there is no evidence at all, and only someones word to go on, its hard to know one way or the other.

Posted in: Newborn girl dies after being left in bicycle basket in Tokyo See in context

This is a crime, she had several months to come up with a plan and this is the best she could do??? Baby hatches, Hospital, anything, but a basket of a bicycle? Finding it hard to show much sympathy im afraid.

There are many good single mothers out there, not even in their 20s. If the woman cant cope then she should have seeked help. If that help is not available then the government is to take some of the blame too. Free childcare for any full time working mother is the answer, but Japan doesnt ask the question...

Posted in: 14-year-old Saitama girl commits suicide after being bullied online See in context

14 year olds dont have the emotional maturity to cope with bullying, and so it can often have dire consequences. I feel for those who did the bullying, as they were immature but they will have this black mark with them forever. The school should have done more. And the BoE need to take stock.

Does this guy know what need is? I cannot believe that someone would rob and kill just to play a machine with a few flashy lights...perhaps im lucky enough not to understand the nature of a gambling addiction, but still...

Posted in: Man turns himself in after hitting woman with car in Aichi See in context

Japanese drivers do this all he time, some are drunk,some are using mobile phones, but most just dont want to wait so tail the car infront, meaning you can be watching three or four cars going through a green man crossing. The police turn a blind eye, naturally. I think the police should be given a performance bonus for catching people in the act of vehicle crime.

Always see tiny kids 5 meters infront or behind of their parent, and that is probably what happened here. A kid that small should be right next to the carer, unless they are in a park. Carers fault too

Have you ever met a Japanese Social worker? I havent. Girls can be just as lawless and violent as boys, although we often expect better from them.
