Posted in: 'Evangelion' anime studio chief arrested for taking photos of nude teen See in context

allegedly taking nude images of a teenage girl and touching her 

The thing here is the use of "bait words" When people hear or read "teenage girl" in any kind of sexual situation, they immediately think of some young 13-14 year old kid. But she could possibly be 19 years. Well old enough to know that something wasn't right with removing her clothes for voice training and could've declined, left or not agreed to it. Of course its not her fault, I think this sicko used his position to get some sicko shots of this young woman and should face up to the fact that he is a peadophile.

A senior member of a splinter group

All this talk about "splinter" this and "Splinter" that makes me think of the Ninja Turtles because the police need to find out what is the root cause of this budding feud and handle it before it becomes out of hand and these gangs start making it public, thus injuring innocent victims.

Posted in: Forcing children to sit 'seiza' style to be recognized as punishment under new law See in context

My son sits in front the tv and watches his shows like that on his own! We never taught him to sit like that nor do we sit like that. So Am I punishing my son for allowing him to sit like that?

This just goes to prove how the wrong actions of one affects all of us.

Posted in: 80-year-old man, driving wrong way on expressway, killed in head-on collision See in context

If Japan took a SOLID stance against certain old people driving like they're doing with the new phone law, this might not be an issue. I've read too many accidents caused by older people recently. Be it stepping on the wrong pedal, driving the wrong way or just no recollection of what happened, Japan needs to look at this seriously. Innocent lives are being taken and destroyed in some cases.

Posted in: Tougher penalties for smartphone use while driving take effect See in context


Yesterday after reading this article, I went to the police headquarters in my prefecture. I asked What's ok and what's not. The Police spokesperson said "As long as the key is in the ignition and the engine is on, you cannot touch, use or look at your phone."

I asked "What about watching the built in tv in the car while driving?" I was shocked to hear that its ok to watch tv in your car.

I asked "What if you're using your phone as a navigation system?"

They said "Buy a holder for your phone or you will be ticketed and fined!"

I feel like this level of interest should be paid to tailgaters or road-ragers too.

Here is the loop hole though. What about those people who watch tv in their cars? Isn't that the same type of distraction as using a phone? So if I were using my phone as a navigation system and I'm not touching the phone, would I get in trouble?

There's ALOT of grey areas in this new law.

Shinohara has denied the charge and quoted him as saying he only pressed his daughter’s neck with his thumb and forefinger because she wouldn’t stop crying

When in the history of child raising has this ever worked? Was he expecting that choking a flippin' 7 month old baby would make her automatically stop crying? Off with him!

Well, 2 can play at that game! Cancel all K-pop concerts and all their crappy dramas and see who stand to loose more money! Japan can do just fine without the purchasing of beer there, but S Korea relies heavily on dramas and Kpop as a source of income.

Posted in: Man arrested for keeping body of 83-year-old mother at home for 4 months See in context

He said he left the body in the first-floor living room of the house because he didn’t know what to do.

Perhaps he really didn't know how to handle the situation or steps dealing with that to do with a death in the family. I think Japan should make some PSA videos showing what must you do, who to call, the fees for these funeral services and show them on tv, make pamphlets, hold seminars, and just advertise! Because most of us here don't think of or know EXACTLY what must we do. (of course we all know not to keep a rotting carcas in our home for months!)

Posted in: Bar association says long-term detainments of foreigners on the rise See in context

"We would like to work to advance human rights for foreigners as much as we can."

I can just imagine the big laugh after anyone read this!

We all know Japan does not care much about human rights when it comes to foreigners! Even ig they are seeking asylum, Japan will place them in these detention centers indefinitely for no reason. For those who had over stayed their visa, what's the hold up in sending them back to their country days after they were caught? In most countries, if you're caught, you're on a plane back home and banned for a set period of time to set foot in that country. but Japan holds you here as if you were a hardened criminal.

You wanna "advance human rights for foreigners" in Japan? First you must realize that we are all equal regardless of race, creed, colour, sex, age or religion.

Posted in: Police officer who drove car that hit, killed 5-year-old boy to be indicted See in context

The police sergeant was on his way to conduct a drug test on a suspect. He drove through a red light, with its siren sounding, at a speed of about 40 kilometers per hour. He was quoted as saying that he saw all the other pedestrians move off the crossing but did not see the boy.

Was this drug test all that important where you needed to have the siren blaring, speed through a red light and take the life of a 5 year old? They (the pedestrians and the 5 year old kid) were on the crosswalk with the right of way, but because you were in a "life to death" rush and had a badge, you felt it was necessary to do as you did? I still don't understand why police drive with their lights on but no siren on the roads!

It isn't a typo. If you look at most of these news articles, certain crimes committed by someone under the age of 23, they state that the person can't be named because they are a minor.

Posted in: Man arrested over attempted rape of teenage girl See in context

Police in Tokyo have arrested a 22-year-old man on suspicion of attempting to rape a teenage girl in her apartment in Setagaya Ward.

attempting to sexually assault the girl who lives alone.

When they say a "teenage girl", it gets everyone's attention and gives the impression that she is like 13, 14 years old. But when they say she has her own apartment or lives alone, it leads me to believe that she is 18 or 19 years old. Where I'm from, 18 is an adult. In Japan, under 23 is still a minor, but they named this guy. I don't get it.

“I was mad at her for sitting alone in a two-person seat and fiddling with her smartphone.”

So if she sat alone in the back of the bus next to the window, would the old lady still be mad at her for sitting in a seat that could seat 4-5 people? How thoughtless could some people like this old lady be? The question also becomes "Why was this old lady carrying scissors on the bus?"

Posted in: Man arrested over murder of estranged wife See in context

Hold on a sec.....

Police in Kochi City said Thursday they have arrested a 21-year-old man on suspicion of killing his 22-year-old estranged wife in a hotel room.

But if.......

The victim also consulted Kochi police, and they kept her home under surveillance

....then how could.....

he strangled her because she wanted to break up.

There's something I'm missing here. How did he get to her if the police were "protecting" her?

You lot are making a big deal about his age. Lest we talk about Tony Hawk! If this is what a 40 year old does for fun, so be it! I play video games in my free time, listen to music in my home and other things. Does that make me "childish", "a moron" or "stupid"? And it is true, he didn't break any laws by poppin' a wheelie in a lightly crowded place. How many people were injured in the clip? Any property damage? What about noise pollution caused by these rapscallions? I'm not defending them or their actions, but would it be better if they were committing an ACTUAL punishable crime?

Posted in: Actress Sawajiri admits taking illegal drugs for over 10 years See in context

Japanese actress Erika Sawajiri has admitted to using illegal drugs for more than 10 years, police sources said Monday.

Sawajiri, 33, told investigators that she got the MDMA at a nightclub event a few weeks ago, and that she had previously used marijuana, LSD and cocaine, as well as MDMA

"I first used illegal drugs more than 10 years ago"

They are also analyzing a urine sample to decide on whether she used the drug

So she told them and gave them all this information and hinted that she used drugs for over 10 years, but they still don't believe her? They need to decide on weather she used the drug? That's like Snoop Dogg saying ;

Snoop : I've been smoking for the past 30 years

Police : We will decide weather you smoked or not!

Come on Japan!

Posted in: Teacher scolds 5th-grade boy by brandishing scissors near his head See in context

The teacher admitted that she got carried away while she was scolding the boy. “My hands suddenly reached out for the scissors. My behavior went too far,”

The board said it believes the teacher’s actions overstepped her professional boundaries and is deciding on a suitable punishment.

Let me help you guys out : Re-train her to be a teacher. Because kids these days compared to kids from when she started teaching are different. Bring her up to speed with society. Because if she can do that with a pair of scissors, what if she got really angry in the classroom with the kids?

Iyoku is accused of using the stun gun on the child, pressing it against his chest, several times between Nov 7 and Nov 15.

I wish they would return this exact punishment on him. Restrain him and do the same thing he did to a defenseless 2 year old for 2 months. That poor kid.
