What's that? They secretly give your information to the police? Where's my scissors? Or does anyone have a card cutter?

Posted in: Man arrested after body of 84-year-old mother found in apartment See in context

I work in forensics and have seen many situations like this. And it always astounds me as to how can people eat and sleep in the same house with a dead body rotting, swelling up and leaking out all that rotting on the inside of the corpse. I've seen a lot worse and the reasoning is always the same. Japan needs to set up some kind of free hotline where people can call and get information as to what to do in these situations.

Now let's see how this excuse works out in a big corruption case!

Posted in: JOC chief Takeda denies corruption allegations See in context

He acknowledged he had signed off on about $2 million in payments to a Singapore consulting company, Black Tidings.

"The contract (with Black Tidings) was reviewed and I did make the final signature," said Takeda, the head of the IOC marketing commission. He called it a "regular commercial contract procedure" and said "there were several others who signed off before me."

"As for me, I was not involved in the decision-making process for deciding on Black Tiding," Takeda said. "There was no reason for me to question the process on this consultation deal."

Now I'm no Detective Conan, but.....(squinting eyes)........that...sounds like he's very much involved in this whole corruption thing.

Posted in: Birds found dead in Tokyo park; poison suspected See in context

Though this is a horrible and isolated incident, I am very sure that Japan will soon make it against the law to feed the birds/stray animals to prevent this from happening again. I'm not "bashing " Japan, its just that it always happens like this:

1 person does something bad/wrong = everyone has to suffer for it

Facts and proof is all over this site.

Posted in: Woman on trial for shoplifting made 10-year-old daughter assist her See in context

Put the kid in a home where she won't be exploited.

Do you have a place in mind? Because such places are not easy to find, and the kids often end up more damaged than they would have been had they just stayed with their parents.

It's easy to say "take away the kids" without considering what that really means.

Commanteer

I think what Tony G meant was based on the “selfish crime and a bad influence on the child’s upbringing”, the child should be placed in a home where they can learn and adapt in a better environment fro a better upbringing at least until the mother comes to her senses that her way of thinking ( "felt it was a waste of money to buy things, especially toys, for her child." because the mother is teaching her child that she is entitled and shouldn't have to pay for anything) is not fit for her child's future.

Also, placing the child in a different home does NOT mean the child would end up more damaged than if they stayed with their parent. I am a foster parent of a kid and he is better off in my place. He is happy, had his own room, toys for days and his Doraemon shows. It all depends on how the child's situation is handled.

Minami Tatenai stabbed her husband, who is in his 20s, in the chest several times with a knife

The victim was taken to hospital but his wounds are not life-threatening

When you realize everything you've done with your life is a total waste of time and can't do anything right! her marriage was a failure, so she tried to end it, but utterly failed at that too!

Sprained his ankle by applying his brakes? How much force was used to apply brakes? Was he trying to Fred Flinstone it?

The government is seeking to come up with the package around June, which may include a request to major American IT companies and other information providers to voluntarily formulate a code of conduct

So let me get this straight, Japan is asking America, a country known for fake news, to help them crack down on fake news? I ain't no trump supporter, but America has a lot of fake news outlets. So this kinda makes no sense.

Ghosn denies all the allegations against him, saying he had been "wrongly accused and unfairly detained based on meritless and unsubstantiated accusations".

You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows! Because that's basically the whole Japanese police/court system at its core! I'm glad a light has been shone upon this faulty, unjust and outdated "system".

I saw this fight last night. Had really good seats. I didn't take this fight seriously at all. I kept thinkng of the " fight " between Antonio Inoki and the late GREAT Muhammad Ali. It was just a show. Floyd knew it'd be an easy fight and did it for the money which takes the skill of the game.

Posted in: Penalties for drivers using cell phones to be toughened with jail terms See in context

While I see the point behind this push, Japan is focusing on the wrong thing as usual! The comment above makes some good points and examples (un-buckled kids in moving cars, driving dangerously on the roads) . What about those cars with TVs built in? Isn't that a distraction? Many accidents are also caused by other distractions (extremely bright car lights).

The number of traffic accidents that have led to injuries and deaths due to the use of mobile phones hit 2,832 last year, marking a 50 percent increase from 2012. Of the total accident figure, 40 were fatal

What about the about of accidents resulting in death caused by drunk driving? Hence the reason I said he focal points are in the wrong places. I'm not defending these distracted drivers, but there's bigger issues to deal with.

A police officer who was on duty the night a prisoner escaped from a police station in Tondabayashi, Osaka, was watching porn on his smartphone at the time.

Oh man! Now Japan is gonna ban porn! Cause you know how it goes; 1 small action and everything has to change into a new law.

Posted in: Detecting child prostitution increasingly difficult in Japan: survey See in context

The finding suggests it has been increasingly difficult for parents and teachers to detect a change in the attitude of juveniles

No it isn't. Here's a hint: Take your child's phone and scroll through it! I know it's some kind of "invasion of privacy", but in this day and age, parents have to closely monitor certain kids.

I took my daughter's phone (which is actually mine that I loaned her 4 days prior) to put some kind of parent restrictions on it. Before I handed it to her, I thought I erased everything from it, because in the settings, I saw there were 77 photos which I thought were mine. I clicked on "PHOTOS" and saw that she had taken/send nude pics of herself. I wished I hadn't seen those pics. SHE IS 14. After that, no more phone!

Posted in: Actress Yoshiko Mita’s son gets suspended sentence after 4th arrest for using stimulant drugs See in context

What I have learned about japan while living here is that if you're a celebrity (singer, actor/actress, reporter, police officer) someone in the know or someone with money you or your family members can get away with ANYTHING normal, hard working people would get jail time for. 4x this guy got a get out of jail free card for drugs? If you or me were caught with 1 weed seed, JUST ONE, we'd be looking at some hard time for a long time.

Surveillance camera footage showed Kumazawa leaving the building on the night of Nov 28, carrying a large mattress, which police believe contained Taniguchi’s body.

So, nobody saw this man who doesn't look like he's supposed to be on the campus carrying a mattress and decided to stop him or question him as to "How did you get in here?" or "Who are you?"? And how did he get a "large mattress" to fit into a rental car? Possibly containing a body too?

Posted in: Man throws bike from 2nd-floor parking area, injuring woman below See in context

After the incident, Yokohama City began installing safety nets below such facilities to prevent falls.

Oh my goodness! You've GOT to me kidding me! Is this how they deal with the problem? By putting up nets to prevent the bikes from hitting other people? Call me crazy, but doesn't that send a message to other people that "It is ok to throw bikes from buildings" thus encouraging other big babies like the mouth-breathing bell-end in this article? Here's my 0.02円 on this situation...Why not install proper bike stalls with enough space for only one bike thus eliminating parking problems? I'm just saying.
