Posted in: Man arrested for strangling woman, robbing her See in context

So it's premeditated attempted murder and aggravated robbery, pretty serious charges. It doesn't look like he's getting off easy.

Really sad to hear this type of news. Rivers are not to be messed with. Under currents can be strong at times without warning. Rest In Peace.

All he could have done was apologize and all would be good but pride and ego got in the way and now he's packing his stuff to go home. Not worth it aye?

Omg, why is he so dumb, that gold piece he bit isn't even worth that much. She's getting a new one real soon.

Unfortunately her family doesn't live here so they can't really sue (per say). They can claim all they want but won't get any positive result in their behalf. It is sad to say but acceptance and to move on is the most positive approach at this point. I also wanted to mention, do we know why she was locked up? visa over stay? Ilegal misconduct of some sort? If anyone doesn't want to go through similar outcomes, they should play by the rules. Different country different rules.

It's not really even close to a lockdown. I stop cars from other prefectures and make them go back. Fine people if they are not wearing a mask in public. Take stuff more serious... it's really a joke.

Posted in: Man dies after being assaulted, thrown off bridge in Osaka See in context

Apparently the police in Osaka will do their best after they analyze all of the cameras in around that area. There's no way he can get away. Of course we have to assume it was a brawl and nationality will play a big role in this. He is probably lawyering up and awaiting to turn himself in on the pretense of self defense. (questions) why didn't anybody help? Was he alone? Was the other man alone? Was this a hate crime? Was there tension before this fight? RIP is all I can add to this story. Sad to see no one does anything these days. So sad... half of the blame goes to bystanders not doing anything to stop this from going this far.

That is quite cunning and to be frank and earnest, it was just a matter of time before he'd get aprehended.

Posted in: Is setting targets for cutting greenhouse gas emissions an effective way to reduce the adverse effects of climate change? See in context

We have passed the tipping point all we can do now is slow down the effects of what's to come. To save earth is to bring the human population to 2 million from 7.2 billion that is currently in. That's a huge cut but that is what it would take. We are killing our planet earth, sad to say but true.

Posted in: Nursery school head may face charge over boy's death in bus See in context

Everyone always jumps ahead and starts blaming and pointing fingers. As a former kindergarten teacher I can only speculate that the principal only did that job to avoid paying another driver. A case of saving money to pay herself more or bring in more money to the institution. Now they (the principal and the home room teacher) are faced with possible criminal charges. That will end up in bankruptcy and loss of teaching licenses for both. It's ashamed that this had to happen but it did. Its human error at its worst. I can only offer prayers to all involved.
