Posted in: Police officer's loaded gun, handcuffs found in Osaka convenience store See in context

In total, about 30 minutes passed between the officer leaving the items behind and them being recovered, and it’s a testament to how safe Japan is

or how ignorant the officers are

> not only did the people who found them promptly contact the proper authorities,

"proper authorities?" Who? The cops, themselves? They're the ones messing up!

the officer himself hadn’t even noticed he was missing his firearm or restraints until he was told, implying that he believes the likelihood of using them is low enough that he feels no need to regularly recheck that they’re still there. 

Or, maybe he can't tell the difference between a belt with a loaded gun and a belt that's just made to hold up his pants?

> As for not noticing that he was missing his belt, the officer was using a squad car during his shift, and sitting down likely made him less likely to notice his pants were riding at a different height than usual.

Was probably too busy watching Terrace House on his phone. Gotta get his Seina fix.

> There are no signs that the gun or handcuffs were used during the 30 minutes they were unattended, but it’s still a serious screw-up, prompting an Osaka Metropolitan Police spokesperson to say “We will strive to more properly control and secure police equipment, so that this does not happen again.” 

I'm convinced. Good to know the ones that are incompetent will protect us from their own incompetency. It's good to feel safe!

The officer had removed his belt entirely and to hang it on the hook on the inside of the toilet door (more commonly used for hanging the occupant’s bag or coat), and attached to the belt were his holster, pistol and cuffs. Apparently, he forgot to strap his belt back when he left the toilet to go back to work.

Isn't "the hook" on the inside of the door.

In other words, right in front of them as they take a squat to do their business?

Which means, unless they are slipping under the door's small crack opening, they MUST see the gun/belt before they leave the stall/room, correct?

So either these fools are simply NOT paying attention to what's right in front of their eyes (most likely), they are morons (most definitely) or they want to give away free prizes to a lucky customer? (probably not)

Good to see our tax money being used on qualified people.

Real comforting.

Taro Kono, told reporters that "old information" was behind a spokesman's comments

"Good. We wouldn't want to be up to date with these proceedings or anything.

Keep up the good work Kono. You're doing a top notch job. Very qualified.

Hopefully the vaccine's will be ready at the opening ceremonies at the 2021 Olympics. That way every one wins, right? I wanna see them line up needles as the 100s of 1000s athletes from a 100 countries march into the stadium.........."

Posted in: Man arrested for buying cup meant for ¥100 coffee but pouring ¥200 latte into it See in context

This happens more than you think, but it's usually the cashier's fault.

People will make the order and the cashier gives the wrong cup.

Sometimes the customer will say something and make the change, no problem.

But other times, its hectic, people are in a rush and the difference in sizes are unnoticeable. So people fill up with a large, not knowing the cup is a small.

But, by the time the coffee is poured, it's too late to say anything.

At 7-11 they should really change the look of each size. To make it more distinguishable.

Oh, FYI. The "large" amount of cafe latte just barely fits the size of a "small" cup. If you don't put the cover on that is. With the cover it over flows.

Posted in: Japan's consumer prices fall at decade-fast pace, adding to deflation fears See in context

I doubt it.......

On second hand sales sites such as Mercari and Yahoo auctions, items can be on sale for months and never be sold.

You would think that the seller would eventually lower their prices.

Not in Japan.

For some reason many people tend to RAISE their price if it doesn't sell for a long period.

I will never understand this logic.

Sounds about accurate. This was in October? So if he graduates in March, he may be 20 years old? Sounds like you have a bright future there kid.

Wasn't this the robbery that was done as publicity? Or was that ANOTHER one involving a porn star? We need more videos of this.

They should make it where NO ONE gets a vaccine, unless they win a gold medal in a 2021 Summer Olympic event.

But anyone surprised that there is confusion with all of this?

Seems just like the same old stuff, just a different name this time.

Posted in: Father of 2-year-old girl who died after being left in car for 7 hours last summer to be charged See in context

According to police, the man drove his 8-year-old daughter to an elementary school at around 8 a.m., with the 2-year-old also in the car. He then returned to his home where he was teleworking due to the coronavirus. At around 3 p.m., he drove back to the school to pick up the elder daughter, and after parking, noticed his younger daughter still in the child seat in the rear.

Oh, but I'm sure he knew exactly where is smartphone was.

No excuse here. You don't forget a two year old in the car, ever. And yes, I have a two year old myself.

Thankfully the young child doesn't have to suffer with this joker any longer. I feel sorry for the elder sibling.

Pandemic reveals hidden poverty in wealthy Japan

Oh really?

Come talk to normal everyday people, not the government, corporations or CEOs.

Come talk to the common tax paying individuals. They'll tell you what's up, real quick.

There's nothing "hidden" at the bottom.

That's three strikes, Akihito. Congratulations. You've proven nothing in life, and will hopefully be locked up forever. See ya!

There's no "man" in the story. Only a sorry excuse for a human being.

Posted in: Aso vows to revive virus-hit economy, promote structural reforms See in context

The world's third-largest economy

I keep reading or hearing this. Is this even true? Who's 4th? And if Japan is third, this world is in trouble.

In his speech on the first day of this year's ordinary Diet session, Aso said the government will prevent the number of coronavirus infections from rising further "while supporting employment and business."

Aso went on to say Japan will try to realize "a transformation of the economic structure and a virtuous cycle of the economy toward a post-coronavirus period."

That's great, guy. Now how is this going to actually happen? Are we all going to get magic beans too?
