"In my experience, the authorities don't want to hear about it. If you have a noise problem with your neighbours, neither the police nor the ward office/city hall will come to your aid. "

Aint that the truth,

"The next time you see a purse snatching in progress just slug the perpetrator and they will run away because they are afraid to fight"

That wont work in JAPAN outside a US base, , cause the kobanites will lock you up for assault and tell you don't get involved, if you are a westerner, the kobanites will tell you that's our job once we finally get around to it. Even if a JN attacks you, you are expected to run away, or run to the koban, or dial 911, by the time they arrive they most likely are long gone, and you must hope the security cameras will help them catch the perp(s)-real talk.

Posted in: 8-year-old-boy dies after being hit by car on crossing See in context

Back in the day I almost got severely hit by a j man on a bicycle as I began to cross the street , the clown had plenty of room on my right side but he wanted to shock me with his daring closeness of damn near bruising me. The miserable loon knew exactly what he was doing. If you inform the kobanites , they most likely wont do nothing, but if yio do something they'll be on it like stank on do do.

Posted in: Police officer arrested for abusing wife See in context

back in the day I watched a kobanite do the funky chicken in Shizuoka near his station , and on another occasion I called their office and received a belligerent response cause my Japanese language was not so good, and was told I would be censured.

Posted in: Man arrested for fatally stabbing downstairs neighbor See in context

"Police said there had apparently been trouble between the two men for some time'

There was a case where an downstairs neighbor had got into a conflict with the upstairs neighbor over leaves in the downstairs balcony. An evil quarrel resulted, with a menacing face kabuki balloon placed in the down stairs patio. Subsequently police were called because the upstairs neighbor started bang on the downstairs ceiling , at late evenings and early mornings. Apt management and police did VERY little. Then it was said that the upstairs wife started working some black magic on the downstairs guy, sending him to a hospital for a slight case of heart failure. Moral to this story never get into it with somebody living above you or below you in Japan. Cause the system will fail you, especially if you are not native

Posted in: Man fined ¥300,000 for online hate speech See in context

"a local ordinance in Kanagawa Prefecture bans troublesome behavior"

What about other prefects in Tokyo, i.e. Bunkyo-ku?

"It is the first time a criminal punishment has been imposed for hate speech under such an ordinance"

aint that the truth

The criminal penalty serves as a deterrent to an extent,

"There needs to be laws to punish discrimination itself,"  Especially in Public places in Tokyo.

There also needs to be more coppers that will follow through on such a complaint

Posted in: Japan plans harsher road rage penalties after high-profile incidents See in context

They also need harsher sidewalk cyclist rage penalties. Saw 2 get at each other over the bike lane on the sidewalk. It sounded from their screaming voices like serious bodily harm was in the air, mind you this aint the first time I saw this in Tokyo. And as stress rises and other tensions the frequency will increase.

the front door had been forcibly opened by some sort of tool

If it was a "luxury apartment" the noise was made, and you're saying nobody heard or saw the ruckus in a "luxury apartment" with all those inquiring minds?

Well I guess Police said street surveillance camera footage may provide facial details and a ID on the vehicle.

"Random crimes may be down, but planned ones are definitely same or even increased in recent years, "


I remember in the 70's Singapore, had a rough time with crime, but when the police population began to be mixed with other nationals, and their laws became stricter, crime dramatically reduced. Now Singapore in 10 times safer than Japan and now the Japanese yen is very close to the Nepalese rupee, and Nepal does not make any name brand vehicles.

"Two men were stabbed Friday evening in separate incidents in Yokohama with a male suspect on the run, police said."

That sounds like attempted murder. But the spin says: The injuries of the two victims are not life-threatening, the police said.

and what about the concealed weapon charge duh?

Posted in: U.S. Marine, in custody for assault, also charged with attempted murder of woman See in context

Not again...

"Police said Hill was in Japan to undergo training and was staying at Camp Fuji Marine Corps in Shizuoka Prefecture." Sounds like he needed more host country behavior training

I noticed with the quickness, all those wing-nut guys with microphones and loudspeakers parked on corners, now vehemently clapping back at the incident. Well maybe they should go to the marine bases, and express themselves there, instead of stirring up the locals with loud speaker, megaphone rhetoric.
