Posted in: 29-year-old woman goes on trial for killing 3 daughters See in context

his wife had been in an unstable state of mind

giving birth to three children in five years will take its toll on a woman's body...  and her mind

Posted in: 3 children, mother found dead in Tokyo home after fire See in context

the five were found collapsed on futons in a room on the first floor

he stabbed / slashed his family members one by one, so imagine the horror of seeing that and waiting your turn with no means of escape. single murders don't usually get the death penalty, but multiple murders do.

case closed!!

Posted in: New bill will block convicted sex offenders from jobs involving children See in context

100% guilty of assault, arrested, in front of prosecutor, paid some cash...no court, no (criminal) record

disclosure: "something that was not previously known, or the act of giving such information to the public"

in the uk, the level of disclosure depends on the circumstances, so your situation is the kind of thing that is recorded...

for the dbs check to disclose!!

Posted in: Man arrested for putting girlfriend’s 3-year-old daughter in washing machine See in context

i think this is code for wannabe yakuza.

put him in a concrete-mixer, turn it on, and ask him how it feels!!

Posted in: As yakuza weaken, police focus shifts to unorganized crime hired via social media See in context

anonymous gangsters and tech-savvy young people hired for specific jobs, obscuring the boundary between them and the yakuza...

"tokuryuu" maybe a menace to society but the kanji (匿流) is a carefully crafted piece of work. 

i take it to mean "hidden rank" where what is concealed is a young person (若)

police must drastically change their anti-organized crime measures to keep up with the new menace

good luck!!

Posted in: Multiple women accuse illusionist David Copperfield of sex misconduct: report See in context

she had first met the magician when she was just underage (15) and over the following years he would call her late at night and send her gifts. when she turned legal (18), the pair had a consensual relationship that lasted four years

the law on "grooming" is quite vague because it's quite difficult to say what it is, and it is not, but if anyone is in any doubt...

this is it!!

Posted in: Real estate agent arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting woman during apartment inspection See in context

a bit late in the day to be viewing real estate...

everyone would agree that ten o'clock in the evening would be an inappropriate time to view property and that ten o'clock in the morning would be much more appropriate.

so somewhere between 10:00 and 22:00 the level of appropriateness changes. some may say that 18:00 is still appropriate...

but obviously in this case it wasn't!!

Posted in: Man arrested for allegedly having sex with minor at welfare facility where he works See in context

what's the difference? "non-consensual sex" and "rape"?

the welfare officer could claim that he didn't force her so it wasn't "rape" but the law states that the victim is a minor and not legally able to consent, thereby "non-consensual sex"

after the incident, the girl contacted a relative who reported it to police

well done to that girl!!
