Are they implying that he speaks for all of Japan? Including non-Japanese since he is reguarded as "the public"?

No, but it sure seems that you think its so!

Well, the way the article was written makes it seem so because the title says "the public is mixed", yet they asked one 70 year old taxi driver and based the fact thaqt the public was mixed on one person! I can understand if they asked a few people and they all had the same opinion, but 1 person isn't the public.

I think I'm done with this site!

Saito told her she had given birth to a baby and said the infant was not responsive.

This is exactly why some doctors hit the baby to wake them us from their slumber or clear their airway so they can cry. The baby was most likely alive at birth, but unproper care, selfishness and stupidity caused it to go back to heaven.

 but the public expressed mixed views about the games that were staged amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The public usually means a large amount of people who frequent a place or occupy a place

Meanwhile, a taxi driver in his 70s said he changed the channel whenever he saw Olympic and Paralympic events on TV.

"I used to be a big Olympic fan, but I don't understand why they were held in Tokyo when we are having a difficult time with the coronavirus," he said. "Schools have canceled sports festivals, so what makes it OK to hold the Olympics and Paralympics?"

Are they implying that he speaks for all of Japan? Including non-Japanese since he is reguarded as "the public"?

Posted in: Mother arrested over death of 3-month-old son See in context

My guess is the problem can be traced back to her childhood - and abusive bullying culture in Japan in general. Past trauma can create monsters, that's it is so important to avoid creating situations that develop trauma. People need to care about others.

Or, perchance......well I'm just gonna go out on a limb here and imply that post partum depression leads many new mothers to do the unthinkable to their baby and themself if not others. A rough childhood or past has nothing to do with it (in most cases). There are 2 main factors that comes into play which some scientists believe are the main c :

Physical changes. After childbirth, a dramatic drop in hormones (estrogen and progesterone) in your body may contribute to postpartum depression. Other hormones produced by your thyroid gland also may drop sharply — which can leave you feeling tired, sluggish and depressed.

Emotional issues. When you're sleep deprived and overwhelmed, you may have trouble handling even minor problems. You may be anxious about your ability to care for a newborn. You may feel less attractive, struggle with your sense of identity or feel that you've lost control over your life. Any of these issues can contribute to postpartum depression.

Usually its reffered to as "baby blues", which lasts like the first 2-3 weeks after giving birth, but some mothers ignore all the sysptoms way past the help stage till there's no going back then stuff like this happens!

"I punched my child in the head as he would not stop crying," 

What was she expecting the baby to do when she did that? Perhaps the baby was crying because of the pain from the broken ribs she caused? Hungry? Needs a nappie change? Bored? Sleepy?

Some people needs their tubes VIOLENTLY tied!

The package includes a plan to strengthen financial aid to businesses affected by government policies such as a request for shorter hours and people hit by the economic slump in the wake of the pandemic, Kishida said at a press conference.

It appears that we the smaller people won't benefit from this. Only the businesses This is a sure way to loose people's votes! Exclude the hard working people from the "tens of trillions of yen!"

I know it said ;

and people hit by the economic slump in the wake of the pandemic

The "people" here means the landlords who had to cut the rents to help out other people who's jobs were affected/cut by this 'rona situation!

"I asked for a fair decision... You will regret this for the rest of your life," Nomura told the judge after his sentencing

I dunno about you, but where I'm from, this is called "threatening a judge" whis a more serious offence and can get you in deeper trouble. In his case, they should expidite his sentence to 20 mins after the hearing. After all, it is going to happen at some point, why not then for mouthing off at the judge?

As they were exiting the store, the boy ran ahead and was hit by the truck turning left onto a ramp going up to the multilevel parking area.

Sounds lkke the truck driver had absolutely no time to react because of how close the kid ran out front of the truck, which resulted in the kid getting hit. The truck was already in motion. the mother is 100% at fault here. Any parent should know to hold your kid's hand in a parking lot.

"Today, the man was found in Mie Prefecture with no injuries and no involvement in any crime,"

He did not offer resistance.

"He carried his own ID and identified himself. It is not certain to whom we should send the man -- the team or the embassy."

Well, since he still has a valid visa, they can't deport him, he was compliant and cooperative with the authorities and he comitted no crimes! Therefore, he is to be returned to his team, given new guidelines as to what he must and must not do while in Japan and not placed in the japanese concentretion camp.....uh...I mean detention center.

They got an innocent mom in a jail for 7 months without any evidence. She didn't confess, so now they have to release her.

Police said Suzuki admitted to killing her daughter and then trying to kill herself. She told police she had become distressed over raising Haruha.

This type of stuff happens a lot here. If you followed this case and read the article, perhaps you'd have a better understanding.

Its so disgusting how this justice system works for some and super speedy for others! There have been many other cases where serious crimes, murders, assaults, corruption, bribery and other more dire tish, but the justice system drags their feet on is and it takes so long. But this case? "Let's get revenge because he exposed our failed system to the world!"

However, she prolonged her stay in detention by refusing to be deported back to her country.

Oldman_13

You cannot be serious! Are you placing the blame of her stay in the prison camp....uh.....detention center on herself? Do you think she had a choice? She didn't refuse to leave, the Japanese government (immigration center) refused to let her leave, refused to let her seek medical attention she so desperately needed and most crucial of all, they refused her freedom.

Yes she overstayed her visa, but many people don't really notice that their cards have expired or will expire in a few days or until its too late. Chuck it up to a simple mistake, but it DOES NOT deserve being treated as a dangerous criminal or less of a himan. No matter what creed or race! Japan needs to be held responsible and deal with this detention center problem! Plain and simple!
