I think we should compared how people used to take care of old people in the past and in different countries.

Asylums are not a nice option either. Should euthanasia of the old become legal?

Did nobody notice? So weird man.

Her testimony sounds legit. A 75 year old woman can’t easily kill a 45 year old man with a belt unless he lets her.

It must have been terrible for the grandmother.

I still don’t understand why Japanese kill close family members. If you don’t believe me, the last 4 news on the Crime section involve family related murders.

If a normal person would end destroyed after such torture for such a long time, imagine a schizophrenic person.

What a horrible fate.

Posted in: 88-year-old ex-bureaucrat indicted without arrest over fatal car accident See in context

Honestly what do you expect from a man of 88 years?

This is a tragedy more than anything else. The old man probably doesn’t even know where he is standing.

Banning old people from driving would stop this kind of accidents.

Posted in: Police shoot at vehicle after driver takes off during questioning See in context

Firing to the air is dangerous and irresponsible.

Maybe due to the lack of “action” in Japan, cops are not used to this kind of situations.

Posted in: Man on trial for killing 19 disabled people says he was serving society See in context

It is a complicated moral topic.

At least it should be the family who decides if the person with the mental illness lives or not, if that person can’t decide by himself/herself. Not someone from outside.

Posted in: Man arrested for confining 18-year-old girl he met on Twitter See in context

I think this happens when children and parents don’t keep a close relationship. So they want to run away away from home, and end up like this.

Visitors will probably arrive only for the first few weeks. After that it will probably return back to normal.

I support the memorial construction.

Posted in: Survey reveals 70% of Japanese adults believe corporal punishment is necessary See in context

Punishment without understanding is a mistake.

A parent should explain why something was wrong, and then punish. Physical abuse won’t solve anything.

why is everyone blindly defending this man? Justice system may not be perfect but it doesn’t mean he is innocent. Specially coming from a man from his position.

Posted in: Woman arrested for helping ex-husband commit suicide See in context

After looking at my university crush dating a teacher many years older than her when she was only 19... left a bitter taste on my mouth regarding age gaps in relationships...

Regarding the news, I don’t think she should go to prison for something like this.

Posted in: Elderly couple found dead in apparent murder-suicide See in context

Another murder among family members. Why is this so frequent in Japan? I definitely understand the husband being tired of taking care of her, but still this happens even among younger relatives.

Posted in: S Korean court rejects petition to repeal Japan sex slave deal See in context

Both countries are paying for what their grandfathers did and grandmothers suffered.

Korea should forgive, and Japan apologize. And then move on. Going back to the past won’t achieve anything.

Posted in: Donations top ¥3.3 bil for Kyoto Animation arson victims in Japan See in context

It's all well and good that people are willing to donate, but who is overseeing this giant windfall? And who will keep track of where the money goes? And who will keep administrators from skimming off the top?

If I remember correctly the authorities will administer the money, not Kyoani
