Posted in: Filipino woman to be charged for allowing 3-year-old daughter to starve to death See in context

I manage to feed myself and my husband for far less than that and we eat fresh foods, not crap. Crap is cheaper. *

tmarie - It's not a job of a 14 year old kid to budget food for her and her sister, that's why our society has a clear disctinction between minors and adults. Her job is to go to school and learn! Don't compare yourself to this 14 year old kid, obviously you're far too matured and clever than this kid. But a minor is a minor . I am not saying that what this girl did was right, but it's not her fault .

Mirai Hayashi >Yes I have, and I know that they come in all shapes, sizes, intelligence, and maturity levels. And some are idiots, some are not. Some act like 30 year olds, some act like 6 year olds...you cannot generalize and assume that just because she was 14 that she was ready to be a parent

@Mirai:You nailed it!

there is no rule on how a 14 year old teen should act, these are all depends on the mental capacity of the kid or on how their parents are raising them.

@ cos : yes the neighbors know her, but how is the relationship? especially in this country where people think that asking somebody for help is a hassle or causing troubles. the 14 year old kid should undergo therapy or counseling, correct her and guide her instead of punishing her. too harsh . About the mother , well do whatever what is necessary to give her 2 children justice.

@tmarie - Mirai Hiyashi got it right,It's 105% only the mom's fault and a 14 year old is still a kid. Probably you were matured already when you were 14 since your parents guided you well, but obviously this girl was neglected . I am not blaming the Neighbors, but they should be at least lectured even the kid's teachers ( if she goes to school proeprly ) , yes it's not the neighbors' fault, but these things can be avoided if they care about each other. It's more of a moral responsibility . If we can comply with the weekly garbage policies why can't we check our neighbors even for just once a month? Is that Hard to do? It's just my own suggestion . And there is a strong possibility that this 14 year old kid doesn't know her neighbors, especially in this modern culture of Japan where everybody is not open with each other. That's why the relationships within neighors here should be improved. She probably doesnt know anybody at all! The 14 year old kid needs to undergo counselling and be corrected, Charging her is too harsh.

tmarie & Atlhetes : 14 is still a minor , just common sense guys. it's easy to judge from your point of views but try to think deeper. Obviuosly the 14 year old kid was not raised properly and there is a big possibility that living with her terrible mom made her thinking not normal too. Her situation is different from Yours , she is also a victim here and probably gone too much trauma . However why don't we scold the NEIGHBORS for not checking each other!? Each person has a responsibility to know what's going on around his/her neighbourhood, Some places in Japan at least need to come up with some idea on how to check their neighbours, since these negligence resulting to death situations didn't happen once, almost every month we have these kinds of news. Because most of the time neighbors here don't care about each other. There should be at least a home owners' association group in each Mansion or Danchi here .

@SHERMAN They are Japanese so they are not guilty? And Iran is only having a propaganda? What if the suspects are Koreans? Chinese? South east Asians? Admit it , Japan is not perfect Especially in these times. I am against death penalty, but I think they should be punished even if they are Japanese.

@sjf33, yeah parents can make a slight mistake sometimes..... but Leaving a 3 year old kid alone in the house is not a good idea! She could've brought the kid with her while shopping, she is not single anymore! that's why having a kid is not just having a doll! it's a responsibilty! if the kid is 7,8 or 10 years old, yeah maybe she can leave him/her alone at home , not ideal but maybe yeah.. but a 3 year old!!!! come on! why is it hard for you guys to admit that this is the mother's fault!? let's face the reality, some parents are irresponsible!

@Bicultural : Every human being is unique, especially CHILDREN, that's why they are kids , and that's why we have Adults and Children... If your 1 year old child understands the law of gravity, good for your kid, but don't expect all children to be the same, Children need guidance from adults they can be sometimes be playful and try dangerous things for fun that's why they need guidance. I bet this kid knows the law of gravity too, but maybe he was playing and fell accidentally.

this is one of the reasons why Japan should not support sexualizing High School girls..... as long as we have AKB48 , as long as we have Highschool girls on front covers of sex magazines, these problems will never stop!

yup society ruined her life, it's not just the TRUE LOVE, maybe she is looking for more deeper LOVE, one thing I don't understand about this country is Girls are not allowed to drink or smoke until 20 Years old, but they are allowed to be working in Hostess clubs , Bars and even Adult entertainment , to quench the needs of this Japanese Alpha Males! 18 years old is still too young to work in a hostess bar, that's the downside for women working on hostess clubs, they were dazzled by the material promises of this yak club owners that instead of spending the prime of their youth having a good relationship with people that they trully love and will trully love them and good education , they were becoming a posession or toy dolls by these "HARDWORKING" Alpha samurai males. so sad...

cleo: Who other students??? Are there new set of new students coming in to that area to replace the previous ones? with the sensationalized news outside Japan I think there are still no body coming in to those areas.

Part of business, sometimes you have to clean the mess up. Not just earning profit! that's life, It's not always go with the flow smoothly. Be ready for these expenses, if they can't, then don't run a business. period. These dormitories should've thought about these things way before , especially earthquakes and suicide cases( borders might kill themselves and leaves all the stuff) are really high in this country. be ready for expenses! not just profit!

Zenny11: answer the questio man, don't run away, Let's say that all Foreigners here including the 500,000 plus foreigners who left stayed. can you assure us now that we are 100 percent over from the problems? give us a statement that will convince me and the rest of the gaijin community in Japan that everyhting is totally ok now, non stop strong after shocks are still going on in that crippled nuclear power plant, There is no assurance of safety until TEPCO announced that everything is ok now! until then you can't assure safety, all you need is another earthquake, which you dont know when is it gonna happen to change the pace of whole nuclear drama situation thing. And if worst case scenario, 4 of them explode , Give me a solution on immediate evacuation plan for the entire foreign community in "Tokyo only" ( don't include Kanagawa, Chiba , Ibaraki. Niigata any place close to Fukushima ken.)?

KLEIN :"MAYBE the foreigners in Tokyo who left MAYBE left because they felt no strong ties to their communities"

Nope they left because they want them and their families to have peace of mind and be in a better situtation. What's wrong with that? Why not if you have an option to go?

Strong ties with communities??? nope because in Tokyo our neighbors here don't even go out of their apartments, or maybe they are not inside their apartments? I dont know where are they!? I invited them for a dinner at my place since we just moved in, but none of them came. We see them sometimes but they just smile and rush out of the main gate since being too much close and talking to a stranger is a no no rule here in Tokyo, especially if you cannot speak Japanese... I don't know the situation in your place though.But that's our situation of our community here in Tokyo.

KLEIN "I saw you were from Sendai. Sorry about the English teaching biz. You probably know that food has been plentiful at Asaichi downtown at least since the buses started running again, which I think was 3.13,"

You don't know what you are talking about, The resuming of the bus has got nothing to do with the limited food resources in the city. Resuming the bus will just bring the people to the city, but not feed them. I left Sendai on the 15th situation became worse, Convinience stores are all out of stock already, All things are sold out, All the vending machines are all out including black coffee and energy drinks were all gone, Cars are running out of gas, Gas stations can only fill up to 5 liters only . The resuming of the local bus didn't really help at all, I was there and experienced the whole situation, NO RELIEF GOODS COMING FROM ANY JAPANESE AGENCIES, The evacuation areas are just adding up all the resources that they have left to feed the evacuees,but nothing is coming out from other places, or from the National government. I was in line for a bus going for Niigata for 3 hours with hundreds of passengers majority are Chinese and Koreans from Japanese schools, but then the bus got cancelled because the way to Niigata became dangerous , and few kilometers from that Niigata bus station I moved to another long line bus station heading for Yamagata with again non stop hundreds of people mainly foreigners lining up, To try my luck of getting out of there before we start eating each other. Until the time i got into the bus, the numbers of people in the line was not changing, Imagine if all of these foreigners stayed together and compete with the locals for survival it's gonna be really messy. I am in touch with my friend every night checking the situation,Until now majority of the shops are still close and Shinkansen will only resume on Aprl 27th. let me know now how will you feed and bathe these thousands of foreigners in Sendai with their limited resources? where should they get their money to support themselves if their jobs are all gone?

"so I think we can handle the food burden of having you here rather than leaving"

First question, HOW Will you do it? easy to say I THINK WE CAN HANDLE but hard to say HOW . These people who lost their jobs and lost their source of income in a land doesn't belong to them , Why would they suffer to make every thing hard for themselves not to eat properly, just to prove to everyone that they stayed? Isn't it COMMON SENSE to go back to your HOME COUNTRY to have a proper meal and better living condition than staying and proving to people that you stayed until the end?

Klein: "Most foreigners don't have a sense of community. The more "modern" they are, the less they have."

This is sooo foolish, That is what I am talking about! the media made efforts to show "FLYJINS" but no one really shows the Gaijins who are still in Japan and the Flyjins who left already but are still raising funds for Tsunami victims, dude I can show you and give you the list of foreign groups here in modern city TOKYO who are making best efforts to help , more than Japanese people who goes on with their lives and forgot what happened to their fellow country people in the north.

KLEIN: "from what I know. They left Sendai. Up to now, I think 4 have returned. Many have not communicated at all."

I was in Sendai during the quake, I am continously keeping in touch with my friend and the family who helped me when I was stuck there, It is foolish to go back there after what happened, even Japanese people are starting to think to leave that city for the meantime because it needs to be re-build again, In fact my friend now is looking for a Job here in Tokyo and her family is thinking to move to Akita ken. The Gas just finally came back last week Wednesday, Since March 11 dude, 90 percent of the foreigners' jobs in Sendai are english teachers and the rest are Nihongo school students... After what happened , no body goes to English lessons, meaning no income for these english teachers who were only earning less money, so if they go back there, they will be just a burden to the people who are already in need of food and other important things, so going away for a while or for good is a big help for the people of Sendai especially for the people who has no where else to go.

@britling: "as it seeks to excuse inexcusable behaviour based on panic, fear and ignorance."

Not all the people who left are in Panic, How can you explain to their kids the after shocks that they feel, how can you ease their stress about it? grocery stores are out of stock with important things that you need for everyday, do you still think it's clever to stay with all these things going on around you? and can you assure us that despite of what's going on around you it's 100% safe to stay? I was in Sendai during the earthquake and I was there until March 15th, Yes you may think that the situation at the power plant is under control by TEPCO,but Im telling you man the aftershocks there was really strong enough to damage the crippled nuclear plant in Fukushima and the damage to that might affect the on going process of fixing those reactors and can change the pace. We are talking about 6 or 7 intesnity aftershocks there man, those can still destroy buildings so don't sit back and relax, it things get worse, you are the one whose gonna thank all the gai jins who left. when are you gonna leave??? if the power plants totally exploded??? well good luck evacuating 38 million people out of Tokyo or Japan that time then.

"Why not start by asking them why they believe tabloid newspapers more than their own relative, and one who is on the ground at that."

I agree that some media companies sensationalized the reports too much, It is wrong to panic, but you got to admit, There is a big risk of Danger going on! a very serious one, and to ignore this is foolish.

Worrying and assuring safety is way too different from Panicking.

@Patricksmash : Human beings work for Survival and to live, I don't see the point of risking your life and your family's for the sake of the company? if there's an option to stay safe and survive. Will the company do something for them worse case scenario? will the company save their lives if things get worse? why not take that chance? while they still can , if they felt the threat of dangerm, Plus, dude you are running a business, it's business, not a romantic relationship, accept the fact that your employees will leave you , with or without earthquake, It's not a gift, it's business. Employees decide to move on and you should respect that.

@Yasukuni : "Maybe a letter, email, phone call from the other country would have been a nice courtesy"

Are these gaijin friends of yours the vast majority of the 500,000 gaijins who left? or just the handful case of your friend? because in my situation, it was different, all the gaijins I know who left , are still keeping in touch with everybody including their japanese friends tru facebook and mixi. like what i've mentioned over and over again, almost all of them started to contribute and helped tsunami victims by raising funds, some people raised 3,000 dollars money for the vicitms! if you wont beleive me, I am glad to introduce you to all of them. Did the news or media see that bright side of the story? did your friend or you, paid attention to that story? or you are only seeing the bad sides? That is my issue here and with these country, People are too extreme, because there were 20 foreigenrs who forgot to say good bye so all the 500,000 gai jins ar the same as them?

"My biggest problem with "flyjin" is that their leaving was meiwaku for lots of people who stayed and had to cover for them"

Meiwaku to people in what means? list it all down, are you 100% percent sure that this is the majority, or you are being too extreme again by the handful people who left and caused meiwaku? or even way before this earthquake even happened Japanese people are already seeing foreigners as "Meiwaku" ?

"Personally I have never called anyone a flyjin,"

yup you never called anybody a flyjin, but the way you judge all of the these foreigners who left are as degrading as what that word means. Or maybe worse.

"Anyway, flyjin, gaijin, cryjin - who cares. Let's just stay safe and build a safer, happier Japan. "

How can you start to build a happier Japan if your japanese neighbors thinks extreme about you as meiwaku?

foxie: You are not getting my point, I am not saying that staying is not good, I stayed here, The whole point of arguement is, it is not a bad decision to leave especially for people who don't have family and relatives here, in your case of course you will stay. To criticize and to brand people who left as "FLYJINS" is not right and disrespectful... and you can't blame them for leaving. If you want to stay and you think this is your home until you die, FINE no one has the right to take that away from you, but repsect the other's decision too.

Zenny11: "Would you leave your home-country if it's economy takes a similar dive or worse?"

Yes if my safety and my loved ones' safety are at stake of course! I will find somewhere safe and will not risk the life of the people around me. I have to use my head and be clever for survival! You leave you can still help your home country's economy, plus the foreigners who left are of course not Japanese! and many of them have their non Japanese families living here, if they feel danger for themselves and families , why would they risk their lives to save the economy of the country that's not to them?

"The way I see it all about values but if you can't stay in the current place of your choice how often and how far will you run and move on till you are satisfied?"

It's human nature to go to move to a place where you will feel safe, And I will never stop moving until I feel safe. That's why humans have wisdom, to use it to save themselves, And running away from danger is CLEVER! or should I say common sense? I dont feel danger yet in Japan so I am here, and currently helping people who needs my help, but for the other foreigners who left, they do sense a danger , so I can't blame them and will never blame them .

So you think staying in a place eventhough it's dangerous is a brave thing to do?
