I fail to see how was this remotely something funny to do! What if they had put wasabi on sushi that was ordered for a child and they unexpectedly ate it or someone with a severe wasabi allergic reaction ate it? Then what? An example should be made so that copycats dare not follow again.

Police quoted him as saying he grew frustrated because the store had nothing he wanted to buy.
Unless youre living in a post apocalyptic era where there's like 1 store that everyone goes to, there are many other stores all over the place! Just saying for future reference!

As Japan and the Philippines do not have an extradition treaty, local cases must first be cleared before deportation.
Let's see how "easy" this would be without money or more complications!
Watanabe, 38, is facing a separate charge in a Manila court for violating a law on violence against women and their children.

What a dream daughter. Not. I hope they really throw the book at her hard, beating up her elderly mother and probably because her mother would not give her dead beat daughter no money.
Um........where's your proof? Not that I am defending her horrible actions, but do you know the level of stress it takes to take care of an elderly Japanese person? Especially with their "pride" still intact? Yes, it happens a lot lately. Like.......ALOT! Its because it is very expensive to have trained people come in and take care of them or to have the elderly taken to a facility to be taken care of. Heck, even the trained professionals loose it and attack the elderly because they think the patient is "difficult" or "stressful". That could also be the case in this situation. And as you stated "probably" for money, highly doubt it!

Gonoi is seeking a total of 7.5 million yen -- 5.5 million from her attackers for mental distress, and two million from the government for failing to prevent the assaults and properly investigate them.
I REALLY hope she gets EVERY YEN and more she is suing for. Because the Japanese courts have a way of extremely minimizing the original amount they are suing for. Fight on!

The Saitama District Court heard that Yuki Kanai, who was sentenced to 10 years in prison after his trial ended last October, admitted to injuring Kia and told police that he didn't seek medical treatment for her because he didn't want to be arrested for abusing her.
And jus how is that working out for you now?
That poor baby! Man............I can't imagine putting a baby through that type of pain and ignoring her cries just for my selfish reasons! 10 years isn't enough! Put them in prison until the deceased baby celebrates her 18th birthday! (I know)

The Nagasaki District Court ordered the local government to pay 500,000 yen in damages to Hannah Martin, who had sought 2 million yen
Why does Japan do this? People would sought a decent amount of money for a case, but the courts would only give them a small fraction of what they wanted!
In October, Martin told a press conference that the prefectural board of education had asked her to refrain from going to the police when she lodged her complaint.
The fact that they asked her not to "cause a scene" should've been enough for the court to see that the BOE knew they effed up and wanted to sweep it under the table! I think she should sue both of those guys individually for the 2 mil for the anguish they caused. Of course the money wouldn't make her feel better, but it would be a win. I would say send them to jail, but since its a crime against a foreigner, they would most likely protect their own.

This kid of thing happens in every country, but that doesn't make it any more acceptable. JAPAN NEEDS A SEX OFFENDERS REGISTER. You cant have these people, who kids are supposed to be able to trust, taking advantage of them like this. Probably get downvoted by the JT nonce brigade but ho-hum.
I FULLY agree with you! Japan does in fact need a sex offenders list like since 7 years ago! But whenever I say that one is needed (which makes complete sense and can save many young children and teenagers) I always get downvoted! These people prey on the young and innocence of these kids knowing the punishment isn't too severe which would allow others to follow suit!

This could've been prevented if Japan had a sex offender's list! He wouldn't be allowed in that place or any other where kids are! His name would've been registered in the government system and upon signing up for a pool membership his name would come up as a kiddy fiddler! Thus preventing him from being there! I'm just saying, Japan!

Or.....hear me out here!
They can build more kindergarten centers/daycares, train more people to help take care of the kids in those places and abolish the whole idea of a long waiting list of kids to get into a daycare or kindergarten. make it easier and more affordable to get into by making the newer centers government funded like the public schools. Doing this would ease a lot of parents' minds by knowing they can return to work and carry on with their careers.

I've been in Japan 30 years and I've also traveled the world, from North America to Europe to India and the Middle East. I am pretty sure that I'm cognizant of the dangers women face far more than you are, Mr. Man.
And yet some people complain that Japan is so misogynistic, and all the bad things all men do and this and that and rape and groping and the next. I heard the island of Themyscira is the best place for all women! No men at all!

Do these people have knives lying around the house or nearby when socializing with friends and family?
If they had a home and you had cutlery in their home, where whould they be? That's where they go to get them. Simple common sense, these people.

She was not forced. She could have just obtained a normal role at a normal company. Could have worked at a convenience store. A fast food establishment. Taught Japanese. Any number of ways to bring in that hard earned cash.
Obviously you've never met anyone with a HIGH BILL at these places who can't pay. Imagine a 5ft. 1in. 20 something year old in a danky room with the tuffs who are yelling and screaming at her! They take you to a room with the big guys! Yakuza types (or wannabes). They intimidate you, humiliate you, threaten you, your family, friends, co-workers, take you to the ATM and drain your account, whatever they can to make you submit and then they give you your ONLY option. And since she's a young woman in her 20s in that vunerable state of mind anything they commanded her to do, she would've done it. For men, they get extemely physical. We have to deal with the remains of the ones who couldn't pay.

She should have went to the police! Though she may have had a tab at the place, I know she would have settled for a monthly payment plan from her paycheck. But these..........I don't even klnow what to call these disgusting excuses thought to boost their selfish and stupid reputation pimpin' her out to pay her bills was the best idea! I can just imagine how horrible and disgusted she must've felt everytime she had to go to one of these places.
I think the police should set their punishment to 127,000,000 yen and have her parents pimp these buttflaps out to pay for their punishment!

This kinda $&#t happens so often, yet youd still have a bunch of fools who still want to have the freedom to go out and easily buy a weapon not fit for the mentally unstable! But hey, as Childish Gambino said......"This is America!"

So based on what some people believe is that women can NEVER do no wrong, they don't lie to get their way/revenge/put men behind bars, play the victim when in many cases they are the aggressor, they never kill men for greed or personal gains, kill their children and blame it on other races, stalk men, and the only thing men do as soon as we wake up is think of ways to continuously oppress women like its the 1930s, attack them as soon as we see them, make ANY woman we see on a train or crowded area our main target for groping and anything negative. Am I in your ballpark frame of thinking here? Basically ALL MEN ARE BAD.

Police said the victim, who is in her 50s, was sleeping at the time when her mother, Chie Sato, came into room and pressed a knife with an 18-cm-long blade against her neck.
That is the creepiest thing! Imagine waking up to see your mother with a long @ss knife to your neck and she's ready to extend her arm at great speeds while the knife is at your throat! Man! I wish people would just talk about the issue at core.

The plaintiffs said the square was fenced but not locked and local children accessed the area daily.
Bet its now SUPER locked, fenced off, has guard dogs, lazer sharks, dinosaurs with tazers, drones and a lollipop for humour. Should've done so in the first place. But still they can't be held liable for the lack of predictions of what a child would do. That's like 98% of a child's thought process : un-predictability!

Someone could do women lots of help even saving their lives by teaching them how to protect themselves from these creeps, Pepper Spray helps and works in many cases till help arrives, even small knifes or sticks can be very handy, a body armor, or even a bodyguard !!? but then again were do you stop?
This is a brilliant idea, but as you know, pepper spray/mace, tasers and small knives are illegal. Bodyguards? They couldn't even protect the prime minister let alone a regular individual. I'd say, a swift kick to the dangling male fertilized eggs would work!
