Posted in: Japan to pardon 550,000 petty criminals on occasion of imperial ceremony See in context

Why?

To fill out worker rosters at the local combini?

If their crimes were so "petty" why were they even arrested then?

That dude clearly wasn't playing with a full deck.

The parents or him better pay for all damages, no questions asked.

Dude had strength, sign him up to a construction company for employment.

I need to buy a dash cam.

Multiple dash cam vids of the week would make a great show on TV.

sigh...................someone create a sex education program in some of these schools already. Or at least have the parents of former baby abusers come in to talk about how ignorant they have been in the past. Scared Straight.

Posted in: 3 high school students arrested for assaulting, robbing man See in context

Three students threw a plastic bottle at his head and then beat him up and stole a coin pouch containing 1,300 yen from him.

Let's see 1300 yen divided by 3 teens equal no more work for life!!!! They can all retire and live the good life!

Obviously they don't know how wives give their businessmen husbands daily allowances either.

Posted in: Japanese Winter Olympic medalist admits causing collision See in context

Does it even matter if he was in the olympics? He nearly killed people due to his negligence.

I guess if he were a GOLD medalist, this would've been "fake news."

and this.....

> Hiraoka, who had been drinking the night before the accident, explained he "confused the accelerator and the brake" when driving in Katsuragi on Sept. 29, sources close to the matter said.

Police are investigating whether he was under the influence of alcohol.

According to investigators, Hiraoka, who hails from the neighboring city of Gose, hit a minicar around 9:55 a.m.

Let me save you some time. He was drunk and is guilty. Case closed.

"Yeah, we wouldn't want to spread the wealth around Japan would we? We MUST keep everything in Tokyo right? These are my olympics, not yours sapporo. We are Japan!"

sheesh. it's one sport out of hundreds. Tokyo could spare a few to other areas and allow them some exposure. You know, encourage tourists to visit OTHER lesser known areas in Japan, to support tourism?

since February 

This has been going on for 8 months? And this was the first lead?

the unnamed suspect, a 25-year-old man

He's an adult. Name him.

he couldn’t control his lust for the girl. 

I'm sure he could control his pokeballs when playing pokemon go though.

 a police officer noticed a man riding such a bike.

Whoa! A police officer was actually paying attention to the streets?

Posted in: IOC apologizes for abrupt plan to move Tokyo Olympic races; Sapporo mayor not notified See in context

Wow, such fun.

IOC: We are changing plans and adapting to help save the athletes and spectators some heat stroke. It's called adapting to the situation when necessary.

Japan: Adapting? Never heard of it, is that a new concept?

Changing plans? Was there a meeting about it? I don't remember contemplating it for months and then just hoping the problem would just disappear.

IOC: We make the rules, not you.

Kind of ironic when hundreds lost their homes and in turn became homeless, they rejected their own kind.

Sounds like he would make a GREAT detective in the Japanese Police Department. He can find out where people live easily and take full advantage in harassing women.

That's what it seems they are best at, based off of the articles here.

Posted in: 32-year-old railway police officer arrested for alleged sexual assault See in context

The Special Operations Division of the Railway Police Force where Tono works is in charge of preventing crimes such as theft and groping inside trains and at stations.

Well, good to see he is creating business for his division..................

Ah, I misread this part.

crimes such as theft and groping inside trains and at stations

INISDE the trains and stations, which doesn't include a person's house. Pretty sneaky guy there......maybe he deserves a raise instead for thinking outside of the box?

To be fair, I'm not taking a side, kids do just run around without paying attention to anything. It was around sunset/dusk time. Drivers also do not look. It could be a factor of all three situations. But just a sad story over all, regardless of who's fault it was. I hope the little girl recovers soon.

Posted in: Organizers fear security staff shortage for Tokyo Olympics See in context

With less than a year to go until the start of the Tokyo Olympics, organizers fear they may not be able to recruit enough security staff and are looking to the Self-Defense Forces and sophisticated facial recognition systems for help.

Well, when are changes and actual actions going to happen? AFTER the olympics are done? Start raising pay, shortening work times and offer some kind of special health insurance to go along with it. Then maybe the numbers will go up.

As for using SDF, good job, now Japan will be prone to attack.......

Posted in: Police officer arrested for repeatedly clogging women’s toilets in convenience stores See in context

It was then that the suspect was discovered to be a police sergeant with the Community Safety Division.

So glad to see our tax dollars going to good use.

If police officers have THIS MUCH free time, maybe they should, you know, do additional work instead? Like sweeping the sidewalks or pulling weeds on the side of the road? Do ANYTHING other than loitering around combini restrooms.

I think that unless Japan decides to eliminate the number "1" from existence across the board, the 1 yen coin will never be obsolete.

Posted in: AKB48, Japan’s biggest idol singer group, apologizes for selling 'Date Tickets' See in context

Why didn't they just call it a "backstage pass?"

So much easier, so much more vague, so much more money could have been made, and best yet, no implications of it being a date or any kind of sexual content.

They could have made it into an event. Each CD purchased, the buyer gets a ticket. They submit the ticket. The AKB officials draw 10 or so names per show. That group of winners are allowed backstage with the necessary security and officials they see fit. They can have a personal meet and greet, backstage seat, picture taking, and whatever. Do it as a group tour type of thing. Everyone would've been safe and no problems. And best yet, no stupid innuendo labels.

Well, whatever. Is AKB48 even still that big? Do they still have "famous" members in the group? I can't remember the last time I watched any of their stuff.

Posted in: Gov't to study whether to introduce joint custody of children See in context

But some are concerned that such a system would have a negative influence on children if their parents cannot reach an accord on rearing them.

In other words, deadbeat fathers who can't even cook a pot of rice to save their lives would be burdened with joint child care? Great.

So. Do like every other country does to when it comes to child custody? Go for it Japan. Be innovative. You don't want to be the last country to introduce joint custody for children!
