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

@WA4TKG

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.

@qazwsx

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.

I would assume that it wouldn't be too difficult to make shotguns, so I hope there aren't going to be copycat shootings.

Newsweek,say local authorities say gravely ill, meaning not good

It would also mean that he is alive...which I would think is good news

CNN is reporting that Abe was conscious when he was being taken away. I sincerely hope he's okay

This opens the doors for a lot of fraudulent activities. I can easily pretend to be company X, or in this case NHK, and print invoices notifying the residents that they are delinquent on their bill, and to wire money to my account or risk losing service.

They have their right to protest as well.

Actually no! Wearing masks is not something that should be protested because its not a political cause or statement. Its a public health and safety issue, and if you don't get that by now, then you are not only part of the problem..you're making the problem WORSE!

Posted in: Japan reports record new coronavirus infections for 3rd straight day See in context

If necessary do it. Declare a state of emergency for Tokyo. Nobody in or out. Clamp down on the night life business. Whatever is possible under Japan's lukewarm laws. The consequence of failing to act will be much worse.

I agree, but the SoE in Japan was such weak sauce, that it will take a long time to get the numbers down. The government needs to grow a set, and tell the people to stay home or face some real and significant consequences for this to work. If they did this, and everyone obeyed, there is a good possibility that the coronavirus could be gone from Japan in a about a month. THEN you can have any business you want to open with impunity. THERE'S YOU'RE SOLUTION MONTY!!

400 cases among a population of 14.000.000 in Tokyo is 0.0028%

Let us say the reported number is wrong and it is 10x higher. So 4000 cases.

4000 cases among a population of 14.000.000 is 0.028%

Let us say this number is also wrong and it is 100x higher. So 40000 cases.

40000 cases among a population of 14.000.000 is 0.28%

Do you even understand what these numbers are? You talk as if 40,000 is the total number of cases of infected people in Tokyo. The reality is the number is UNKNOWN, that is why we test. But they way things are trending, the numbers are probably much higher. Also, the number of infected people is INCREASING, that is why the government is stepping up the precautions (although its arguably a moot cause unless they start enforcing more restrictions and stop protecting irresponsible night life businesses) .

Let me give you a real analogy. Let's say I have 100 jellybeans and 2 of them will kill you if you ate them...would you take a chance and eat a jellybean?....yeah, I thought so. When people go to work on crowded trains everyday with people who don't wear masks, or wear them incorrectly because they're "unconfortable", or because they refuse to to support some stupid political cause, then the are eating jellybeans.

This is so stupid! Why should I have to pay to have bars stay in business?? If they can't operate and keep their customers safe, then they should just close! Yes, bars may go out of business, but the industry will survive!
