Question, how many of you guys have been in a firefight? Good guess would be NONE!
Cop most likely had a Glock 23 .40 S&W on his hip, and two spare magazines carrying 13 rounds each ... Fully trained marksman with a pistol can take down someone at 100 meters, but that is only in perfect conditions, and the subject is not moving, there is no wind, humidity is perfect etc., etc., etc., but some copper is pushing it at 30 meters and that is being generous, christ a NSW copper last year missed hitting a guy who was 5 meters away from her and ended up hitting 3 bystanders, so cops are pretty bad shots.
Now you have a guy with a AR-15 which by the way is LEGAL in Australia, but you have to jump thought hoops to get one, a guy with a AR-15 vs a cop with a Glock ... Good chance the cop would have come off second best and would have most likely hit a few students in the firefight. Now if the copper had on a ballistic vest, then yes he could have engaged the target and he may or mayn't have stop further blood shed, but if he did not then it would have been a suicide mission on his part, unless he was a marksman and trained by either police SF or military SF.

Yes I poured a bucket of water over the person, and its not the first time I have taken actions against people here, when living in Ichihara a drunk from SHIDAX use to urinate in the stair well at the apartments I was living at, this happened every Saturday night, so one night I loaded up my airsoft MP5 and waited for the person, as soon as they had their pants down I unloaded the full magazine on the them in full auto, after that never had anyone urinate in the stair well again.

There it is. If someone is smoking near you, you should physically assault them. Bonus points if they are in their own home.
The bi-law of the mansion states NO SMOKING on the balconies, people have complained since I moved in 5 years ago, and I also did and nothing changed, so for the safety of my child when he was born in 2014 I took action, the person still lives down stairs but has not smoked out on the balcony since that day in 2014.

Because non citizens have children here who ARE JAPANESE, and ANY responsible parent has to care for the future of their children.
Their children are Japanese so when they are legal age they can vote on what their country's politicians do, but the non-citizens still should have no rights here to tell Japan what is should and should not do. Want to have a voice in Japanese politics, then renounce your birth citizenship and become Japanese, then and only then do you have the rights to voice your opinions. Remember Japan is for JAPANESE, if you are NOT Japanese then your opinion is not valid or has any value here, if you do not like it, you have 1 of 3 options
1) Renounce you birth citizenship and become Japanese
2) Pack up and go home.
3) Cry in to your pillow.
I renounced both Australian and British citizenships to become Japanese so I had a say on what happens in my life here, and that is how is should be ... Some as the non-citizen in your home country trying to tell your government what it should and should not do, would not be tolerated what so ever as they are not a citizen.
Example : Australia has STOPPED Permanent Residents from voting.
Permanent residents enjoy many of the rights and privileges of citizens, including access to free or subsidised legal and health services. They do not have the right to vote in federal or state/territory elections, unless they were registered to vote prior to 1984

No taxation without representation?
You work in Japan you pay tax, you want to vote in Japan then become a citizen. If you do not want to pay tax because you are not a citizen then go home. Unless you are a citizen, you have no say in the politics of Japan, whether you pay taxes or not.
Just had my morning smoke. Outside, of course.
The person in the mansion below us, use to smoke outside and their second hand smoke came in to our mansion, they no longer smoke out side after I poured a bucket of water over them ...

Disgusting, just plain disgusting, as a tax paying resident this is the one topic I sorely wish I had a voice on.
As a non-citizen, you may decided to pack up and go home one day, so why allow you to voice your options? I agree smokers are vulgar people and they think it is fine to poison others with their disgusting habit, but unless you are a citizen, then you really have no rights to try and change any laws in Japan to suit you. If you wish to vote and have a say, then do as I did and become Japanese.

Disarm the Military as they have killed millions over the years,
Disarm the Close Protection Details around politicians and their families, because guns do not keep you safe,
Disarm the Police as they seem to kill more unarmed people then armed,
Disarm the Public.
And we will all live happy ever after. ..... roflmao

Yeah great idea, and instead of having teachers "Body Slamming" kids to the ground like that which was on the news a few days ago, you will have teaching putting two to the chest and one to the head. I do not trust any American with anything more dangerous then a teaspoon.

Cheque please I want OFF this planet, way too many nut jobs now days for my liking, I really feel sorry for the world my kids are going to grow up in, I do not care what anyone says, I am teaching my children like I was taught in the 1970's-80's .. Manners, Respect, Honour, Respect all living things large or small, and do not take crap from anyone. .... Son turns 4 this year and starts Karate and not the sports type, he will need to protect his younger siblings from the nuts of this world.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe says the government should study specific steps to cushion the impact of the planned consumption tax hike in 2019 on the economy.
Ummm how about forcing companies to pay REAL wages so people have money to spend and stop ripping off their workers, now there is a idea.

Great so more "Slave Labour" will enter Japan, who will have their passports taken, shacked up with 50 other workers, and pay ¥150 a hour and when they complained kicked out of Japan with nothing.

Admissions of statutory rape aside, the difference between an 11 year old and an 18 year old is difficult to hide.
OK lets get something straight for the non-educated ... 1996 Japan statutory rape law is violated when an individual has consensual sexual contact with a person under age 13. At 13, Japan's base age of consent is the lowest of any developed country ... It was not until I think it was 2008 that prefectures brought in local "corruption of minors" or "obscenity statutes" which raise the de-facto age of consent to 16-18, unless they are in a "sincere romantic relationship", usually determined by parental consent.

So you worked in a strip club, and took a child to a love motel, but you look down on US military members
Serious can you read? 1996 I was here working for Gas Panic, which is NOT a strip club, Gas Panic was a nightclub, 2006 I was working for the gentlemen's club ... Now as for Gas Panic, the JAPANESE security staff would have checked this girls ID before entry, and the bar staff who were all JAPANESE would have kicked her out if they though she was not 20 years old or older ... So if the Japanese could not tell her real age, how the hell could I who was only in Japan for about 3 weeks at the time? My wife is 46 years old and people think she is in her early 30, so some 15 year old looking like she is 20 would not be easy to pick for non-Japanese, even Japanese to tell the truth!

According to today's TV news, she had stated that she was 18 years old on the bulletin board. But of course, he must have noticed that that cannot be true when he met her.
Gas Panic night club in 1996, I was chatting to a girl, she was in the club and drinking alcohol so I assumed she was over 20 as that is the minimum legal age to enter a club and drink alcohol, after chatting and dancing for most of the night, we went to a love hotel, next morning when I woke up, she was dressed in a school uniform, found out she was only 15, yet she looked and behaved like someone over 20, so no in some cases you cannot tell their true age.
