Actually that may not be the case-
[ Dr Tom Jefferson, senior associate tutor at the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine (CEBM), at Oxford and a visiting professor at Newcastle University, argues there is growing evidence that the virus was elsewhere before it emerged in Asia.
Last week, Spanish virologists announced that they had found traces of the disease in samples of waste water collected in March 2019, nine months before coronavirus was seen in China.
Italian scientists have also found evidence of coronavirus in sewage samples in Milan and Turin in mid-December, many weeks before the first case was detected, while experts have found evidence of traces in Brazil in November.
Dr Jefferson believes many viruses lie dormant throughout the globe and emerge when conditions are favourable, which also means they can vanish as quickly as they arrive.
"Where did Sars 1 go? It's just disappeared," he said. "So we have to think about these things. We need to start researching the ecology of the virus, understanding how it originates and mutates. ]

Noh Mu-heon also "killed himself" under suspicious circumstances (i.e. his bodyguard changed his story a number of times).
Worthy of investigation.

Why is the Government going to give free money - our taxes - to this incidious industry?! It is controlled by the Yakuza, criminals who are a scourge on this nation. Shut down this satanic industry and drive the Yakuza out permanently! I'll pay for that.
Research who campaigns for and supports the LDP.
Then you will understand why.

Do Japanese guys have some kind of fetish when it comes to high school girls?
Have a look at the magazines in the convenience stores.
Japanese boys and young men are conditioned from a young age to fantasize about high school girls and even younger.
This preps them to become avid viewers of porn and users of the red light district establishments.
Those who don't have the income to afford the "fuzoku" establishments (like this p/t worker) have to address their pent-up 'needs' (as conditioned from a young age) in some manner...in his case it's slashing skirts, in others its molesting on trains, others straight-up rape.

The man is a legend!!! ]
If he did jump, in the end it didn't amount to much.
And if it turns out that he was just used for his money, even less than that.

These type of crimes actually occur more regularly than one might assume, and are periodically reported on here.
People should consider what type of Japanese people (it's likely that it wasn't a lone individual) would do this, considering that (1) it goes against the basic outlook of most Japanese citizens, and (2) to successfully pull off these type of massive heists actually requires a certain amount of organization/equipment and experience in stealing/ripping people off.
There's only really one organization in Japan that puts immense pressure on its members to pay a monthly fee to its headquarters. Paying fees (the more the better) is also basically the only way to move up in this organization.

Seems Japan cant do any of this for the most part.....
Hard to do when the male population is conditioned from a young age to view young girls in a sexual context.

People again don't want to address one of the main roots for this type of sickness- obscene images of sexual acts performed on minors, in other words pornography. Goes without saying porn is also deeply related to the chikan culture, as well as rapes.
The popularity of porn normalizes fetishization, and from there not only the crimes, but a reluctance to mete out tougher sentences.

He learned is tricks from his grandfather Kishi just read his wiki page is enough to make you gag and understand why shin Kuhn is the richest Japanese politician.
And if you do read it you'll come to understand that he was released from Sugamo Prison for suspected war crimes and reinstated to work for Uncle Sam's interests in Japan.

Although some details are hazy when translated into English, the basic ideas put forth are clear enough.

I recently learned of a young Japanese person who suddenly developed a high fever, body aches, etc.
When she went to the hospital to check it out, the doctor did not administer the test for the corona virus, but instead pronounced that she had the "summer flu."
So now it is apparent how Japan has a 'low' number of corona infections.

Gee, ya don't say?
Still, wouldn't it be nice if people started to stand up for themselves, rather than bow in acquiescence to a CIA/Yakuza cursus honorum?
If you have a look at the video it's readily apparent they did stand up for themselves.
When you've been deprived of decent income via blacklisting and have had your head kicked in by thugs, it may make it a little difficult to continue fighting.

There were upheavals and massive protests in the 1950's and 60's, tens of thousands rallying in Shinjuku and other central locations.
Then the gov't. started creating black lists to ensure those in involved would either be fired from their jobs or denied future employment, and also sent in crime syndicate thugs to eliminate the protest leaders.
Ironic that you mentioned Japan should be more like America, as sit was the CIA who installed the LDP, and a common mantra was always to label any protester in Japan as a communist, which justified any and all police/judicial action.

Sex industry is run by criminal syndicates of course its worker's side hustles won't have any scruples about ripping off innocent citizens.

A third of the known transmission routes are from hostess or cabaret clubs. This of course doesn't include those who refuse to admit going to these places. They need to be closed, but won’t ... the sex industry in Japan is bigger than the car industry in economic terms
There's another elephant in the room reason why politicians are compelled to allow them to do business.

He is easily replaceable (and as indicated in the article has probably already been).
These criminal-syndicate industries will continue to flourish, and sexual crimes triggered by images in certain types of videos will also continue to take place.

When did the government say that? You do realize that developments such as meetings, splits between factions, etc. are quite openly reported here, or do you not?
Yes and are you aware that the syndicates are deeply involved with the government?

For clarification they were arrested in April for one rape and now they were able to charge them with another rape that happened in March.
Yes that is what is reported above.

Rapists in Japan generally aren't sentenced to life.
Both of the guys mentioned had already raped and were free to roam about because they weren't incarcerated.
I'm sure the victim wasn't too thrilled about that.

No doubt a lot of guys still resistant to the role porn plays in these type of crimes.

Things were set up by the US in the post-war era (i.e. massive import of Hollywood films, installation of a pro-US political party, etc.) to ensure that the majority of Japanese would come to view the US in a positive light, so those type of survey results are to be expected.
