Posted in: 'Hostage justice?' Japan fights back with an internet FAQ See in context

Did anyone see on tv last night they had one of those shows that talk about crimes and such. They had a story of a Japanese uni student who was framed for being the head of one of those ore ore scams. Was totally innocent but was kept in jail for over 100 days and was just not let out after his mum proved he was innocent. Prosecutors did nothing and assumed guilt from the start. They even slept while interrogating him. Took over 400 days from arrest to be able to prove his innocence in court. They had an interview with the man and he talked about the harsh conditions. No heating, lights on all night, long useless interrogations etc

Even down in Toyama city the weather was rainy and very windy on that day. Can’t imagine what it was like more than 2000m up in the mountains...

I can see where it is from my bedroom window and can make out the car park with binoculars. The mountains make for an amazing view

My family (wife and 2 kids), sister in law, and I all got it even though we had all been vaccinated. Must be a different strain to the vaccination that’s doing the rounds. Knocked me out for a few days with a painful cough, 40C fever, no energy etc Can’t imagine what it would have been like to be 80 and go through it

Here in Toyama all the crows come into the city centre just before sunset and sleep on the tops of buildings. Thousands of them. We call it ‘Karasu no jikan.’ Come morning they all fly back off to different areas for the day
