With gun crime at the level it is in Japan, can someone tell me why the police need to carry guns? All officers are proficient in judo which is more than capable of handling a drunk salary man on a friday night. The yakuza are scared to discharge a firearm in public for fear their boss will be arrested. I could possibly see the need for armed response vehicles on roaving patrols in big cities, but small towns in rural Japan, really!

Prosecutors had demanded a one-year prison term and a fine of 39 million yen, claiming she evaded taxes for the "selfish reason of keeping the money."
Wow ! She had the nerve to actually want to keep the money!! Unlike the politicians in this country who sacrifice everything for the good of the people.
