The article in Japanese gave some more insight to the situation.

Taro, the suspect, has been nursing Yuki from about 10 years ago. Yuki was badly forgetfulness (most likely bad dementia). He legs we very weakened and had fractures. The past couple years she was house ridden without the able walk well enough to leave the home.

Yuki was in a Tsurugashima city long-term care facilities from April to early June, but for reasons they were no longer able to keep her due to strict admission rules based on a person's condition. So a person can improve a bit and then be released with disregard to the overall situation. So the nursing home released her back into the care of an 87 year old man who said he was no longer able to care for her due to his weakening condition due to age..

The son 55 lives on the property in a separate building. But he was probably not helping the father most likely due to the nature of long working hours her in Japan.

The thing we'll never know is if Yuki was part of the decision or not. But even if the law is clear that it's considered murder irregardless until this country decides to change these rules. But what led up to it with the nursing home not continuing care is just a sad state of affairs with the lack of availability and strict rules for nursing homes.

Posted in: Fixing American 'dumbocracy' See in context

I smell a Right Winger! Probably looks up to the former quitting governor of Alaska, Palin, who is still trying to master the English language. It's funny he talks about "dumbocracy" because typically the Repug electorate is the rural uneducated who are feared/fooled into believing their lies which are all geared around making themselves wealthier at the expense of everyone else.

He sounds like a classic American Right-wing nutter who totally ignores Europe as a model for successful balance of capitalism and actually caring enough to take care of it's citizens at the same time.

If you ever meet one of these 'dumb' Americans, ask them to give examples of countries that successfully follow their ideals of almost no taxes and no social services. Where people are basically free to do whatever they want without regulations to make money and if you don't make it, too bad for you. In Asia, the Philippines is a great Repug model of "screw you" capitalism which is exactly what they are preaching.
