Good for him I hope it leads to some swift action to remove people from the ship. It seemed obvious to me from the beginning that a ship is the perfect breeding ground for a virus

Well done Scott for having the integrity to stand by your principles. Entering a common area of an apartment building is hardly a serious crime so sounds like you were discriminated against cos you are a foreigner. It’s inhumane inside the Japanese police station and they treat us like animals.

Having been through a divorce with a spiteful Japanese woman who used the kids as a weapon I can totally empathize with your situation. I hope your situation will turn around soon

Posted in: Yamada was questioned by police in Tokyo 2 days before Osaka child murders See in context

Brainiac, he obviously wasn't go to a Halloween party was he. The cops should have kept an eye on him and took a DNA sample while they had him. They would probably solve a few other cases while they're at it. An reasonable person would know he was planning something and whilst your logic is great it would have failed in the situation like the cops did.

What? Why are the police only concerned about whether he had drugs or not? He clearly was intending to do something nefarious with what he had on him!

These poor kids were neglected by their parents and were probably being bullied. Then had the misfortune to cross paths with this evil p.o.s. What a gut wrenching, horrific story. RIP Ryoto and Natsumi
