I might sound like a broken record, but where were the parents?

The mother should have been arrested, not the driver... Why?

She told police that while she was chatting with her friend, Yuhi apparently wandered off by himself.

A lot of lives were ruined that day...

I don't want to place any blame, but why was a 5-year old walking home from preschool by himself (not enough info in the article, though)!?

I am a father of 2 boys (4 and 5 years old), living in Fukui (next to Toyama - same countryside) and the preschool is within a 3-minute walking distance. I walk them to-and-from school everyday...

Everyday I see so many oblivious parents, chatting with their mommy-friends, glued to their smartphones, not using seat belts, etc. It makes me so, so sad...

Let's not crucify the girl... Her life is also over.

I live in Fukui city and always use Route 8.

To all the people making light of the situation, or comments like 'watch the weather forecast': It's really serious, we didn't see this coming and snowplows/heavy machinery can only do so much...

Am I the only one who thinks about the fact that he got a 16-year old girl pregnant?!

I dont think he is the first... I got my PS4 on February 21st at 22:00 at my local Otaku gamestore. You wont believe how far smooth-talking gets you (even in Japan, sometimes) ;)

Unfortunatly, these situations are nothing new. The predators have evolved their methods though. Instead of blaming any form of social networking, parents should take the time to inform, educate and guide their children. I know, this is Japan (the most peaceful place on earth, where nothing ever happens) and all the responsibility lies with public schools and the great cram school. It might be too much to ask, but how about talking with your child instead of trying the easy way. Installing a block takes a few minutes, but if the child was made aware the chance that this could have been prevented would be much higher.

I won't even start on the state of sex education here..
