> Matsuno said he takes the matter "very seriously" 


Because you got, you know, busted with a DUI. Clearly if you “were” serious, you’d either just drink at home, have a DD with you or just walk or cab it home.

This reminds me of a kid I knew back in high school. He would often ditch school, or come late, late meaning with about 5 minutes left in class during the last period, JUST so he could play sports with the team.

Then he comes in talking about he was “serious” about studying and being a student. And the class, including the teacher would just scoff in disbelief.

Can't wait to hear what the "panel" says. I'm sure it will be ten men over the age of 55 that will be deciding this. The suspense is one.

Posted in: Kishida's intention to raise consumption tax in focus at Diet See in context

What they should be doing is lowering “lawmakers” and most definitely Kishida’s salaries and per diems. Or just straight eliminating them from the budget, all together.

They most certainly are a 1000000% waste of tax payers money.

Get them and their useless “efforts” off the table, and Japan will be back in the black within minutes.

On the other hand, he pointed out that she was told what to do by her male accomplice who assured her they were acting on the victim’s own wish to die. The judge said “the maliciousness is low compared to other homicide cases.”

Low, huh? So what is considered “high?”

What? Did she help strangle the woman and said “oops, my bad,” after?

The judge should also be thrown in jail for ignorance.

If these dorks are allowed to roam the streets and disturb the public while the police do nothing about it, as usual.

Then the public should be allowed to throw things at them or lay road spikes in front of them without punishment as well.

Ambulance workers struggle to find hospitals to admit patients for 4th consecutive week

Well, in Japan, many hospitals close down on Sundays and some at night, as if injuries and sickness go to sleep sometimes.

Why would this come as a shock to people? They don't like customers.
