Remember back in the days when train stations didn't have gates on the platforms. It's nearly impossible to do without them these days because so many people have their faces buried in their smart phones while walking. We would have people falling onto the tracks on a daily basis.

I think the real solution is to not allow people to this PERIOD. It's not only hazard to themselves but its a hazard to others too.

Police said that Ichikawa has remained silent since his arrest.

As with most perps in Japan, I guess he had no recollection of doing it.

Posted in: Tokyo police to issue ‘red tickets’ to cyclists violating traffic laws See in context

I don't know what these "red tickets" are but the j-police really need to start fining reckless cyclist who don't follow basic traffic rules. And not just in Tokyo, this needs to happen everywhere.

I don't know how many times I nearly hit a cyclist or pedestrian for running red lights or stops signs, or riding on the wrong side of the road. But what really irrigates me to no end are mothers who carry their family on a single bike (one child on the back, one child on the front, and another baby strapped to the mother's chest or back. One wrong move, and you can kill an entire family.

how come he was in possession of a length of cord long enough and strong enough....

totally what I was thinking!! I smell a fish here. I think this guy was given the cord. Perhaps he was someone who knew something about a prominent figure. Suicide or strangulation??

A 15 year year old Japanese girl who "had black hair and looked young"? You don't say!

Sorry but I thought this sentence sounded very odd. LOL

Posted in: Police to revise rules for VIP protection after Abe shooting See in context

@Awa no Gaijin

Better late than never !

I disagree. This so reactive. Abe had virtually no protection. Even after the first shot, no one did anything. There was a good 2 to 3 seconds between shots which is enough for a trained bodyguard to jump on that fool and wrestle him down before he could take another shot.

All of these protocols should have been in place a very long time ago, and the police and the SS assigned to protecting the former PM, should have better trained and equipped. For them to finally figure out that they have a serious security breach after someone like Abe is assassinated is too little way too late.

Posted in: 3-year-old girl dies after being hit by car in internet cafe parking lot See in context

I originally thought this was an old people thing, but I honestly don't understand how anyone can mistake the gas and brake pedals. . I drive both auto and manual transmission cars, and I hardly ever use the gas pedal when backing out of the space. In most cars, the engine speed at idle is more than enough to back the car out of a space. And in a manual car, I ride the hell out of the clutch and use the gas pedal very conservatively.

Even if you mistake the gas and brake (again, I don't see how), why gun the gas???

Why was there so much cash in the ATM, especially if the PO is closed?

Beating up on a minor and running away... keep it classy dude!


Although I don’t like tobacco or cigars, does an E Cigarette even produce any exhaust, so to speak?

Whether it produces "exhaust" or not is not the point here. There is no smoking on the trains PERIOD. No one should be subjected to have breathe in whatever is contained in those e-cigarattes. Also, keep in mind that we're still in a pandemic here, and cases are on uptick again, so he should keep that hole on his face covered up so he doesn't spread diseases.

Posted in: Japan extends detention for Abe's accused assassin See in context

Just my guess, but I think they are looking for more evidence that this was a premeditated and planned attack by person of sound my mind, so that he does not try to slimy out on an insanity defense. His statement to the press:

Yamagami allegedly said in the letter that he no longer had capacity to think about political consequences Abe's death may cause,

kind of proves this. By writing this letter, he was already setting up an insanity defense. Also, the fact that he used his SDF training to construct a weapon capable of killing someone also shows that this was well planned attack, rather than a mad man who acted out of emotion and anger.

Unfortunately there are always going to be angry disturbed individuals in any country, and in this case one of them seems to have made a homemade gun from the Internet I suppose.

You are making too many assumptions about the shooter. We have no idea if this shooting was politically motivated. For all we know, he may be just some crazed AKB48 fan trying to get the attention of some teeny bopper member of the group.
