Names of 18 and 19-year-old criminals to no longer be concealed from 2022

If you want to give them obligation like an adult, give them rights as an adult. Those kids still can not buy any liquor and tobaccos but they will be facing as criminal adult.

Japan just won't admit that they have social issues, like single parent that having difficulty in rising their kids, bad neighborhood that consists low income family that can give this kids bad environment to grow up.

Ghosn is a criminal under Japaneses law and he escaped Japan illegally. He should be returned to Japan and face the Japanese legal system.

If it's true justice there should be no arrest for Ghosn in the first place but here he was, waiting trial that always be extended from time to time.

Posted in: Cyclist killed in hit-and-run in Chiba See in context

If the car driver had passed a driving test and wasn't drunk or speeding s/he would have known to give a cyclist s/he was passing a wide berth so that even if the cyclist was drunk and fell suddenly from their bicycle then the car would not harm the cyclist. This is considered in law in all modern nations the responsibility of drivers and as an ex cop I know its a fact.

Don't assume that kind of road like Tokyo residential area where you expect pedestrians or bicycles in any corner of the street. On the other hands on national highways you can drive on same roads for several days without seeing any bicycles at all, so drivers will expect a car with all light head and tail light but suddenly when encountering a slow moving bicycle that quite often without night time reflector or sufficient light will lead to accident.
