Because she is an adult and she is the one who beat the child.
Is that an assumption? Or has it already been proven? Is not the father an adult as well?

This is truly tragic, but I have to ask... why are all fingers pointed at the mother?

Unfortunately, I will have to see it to believe it. Written laws and the enforcement of said laws tend to be on the opposite ends of the stick. But here's to hoping...

Constant naggiing is a form of psychological torture. It's enough to drive anyone over the deep end. As is the case here. However I would have chosen to leave instead of murder. But would have to agree with others as the situation of caring for loved ones without proper training and support can make someone feel completely helpless and isolated. Especially within a society where access to help is very (or seems to be) limited.

Study after study has been conducted and experts have found that driving too SLOW is more dangerous than driving too fast. The reason is that slow drivers, tend to be more out of sync than with traffic than drivers going near the limit or just over the limit.
To add to that, slow driver's also cause the drivers that are stuck behind them to become impatient (road rage) and try risky maneuvers to try to get around them. Also add to the fact that most drivers in this country drive as if they are the only car on the road. Bad combination.

So if a child falsely accuses a parent of abuse, will the parent be detained and grilled until a confession is given?

Okay Han Solo........ are you willing to get rid of ur private jet? And ride coach on the train Instead? Doubt it.
You mean get rid of the millennium falcon, right.
Anyhoo... The human race is destined to be destoyed by its own greed. The planet will do just fine without them. Nothing new there. The environment will endure despite the humans' impact on it.

I guess the relevance of stating that he is a 'painter' eludes to the fact that maybe he has sniffed far too much paint thinner fumes?
Seriously however, I tend to agree with Disillusioned statement,
"There's just not enough love in japan."
Family or emotional bonding seems to be a trait that is sorely lacking within this society. Many just don't have the capacity to express their emotions outwardly. This inevitably leads to many internalizing their emotions which will eventually be let out with explosive reprocuctions.

Oops! Lawsuit minus the 'class action' is the correct term. My bad.

This is beyond exploitation... it is insidious manipulation in every sense of the words. How they can get away with this in plain site of the "authorities" is beyond belief. Was she also told not to press charges!?
Class action law suit comes to mind.

In no way am I condoning having sex with minors but...
... it's hard to say who the victim is here. A 16-year-old whether male or female can easily pass for a low 20 something. If he truly believed her when she presented herself as an adult then who is at fault? I guess nothing short of asking for proof of age would be needed in this situation.

Aso is the "granddaddy" of the blue blooded cronies pulling the strings of the forever kowtowing majority. Japanese youth need to stand up and put these old geezers in their place... a group home for the elderly.
Oh wait! He's only 78. That would make him just a little brother crony. My bad.

Talk about a short sighted system. Although that seems to be the norm as guilt is typically assumed. Fathers in this country don't stand a chance.

John, needless to say that I have full confidence in Japanese laws and all decisions based on them.
Let's just hope that you don't find yourself on the wrong side of the table someday. Because you are as vunerable as any one of us living here. Here's to having your fingers crossed.

Countries will always jump at an opportunity to call a champion their own. Japan is no different.
The animation however is taking it to a whole new level however. There is no doubt that this was a deliberate act on the part of the department responsible for authorizing advertising within Nissin. They were probably ignorant, naive or just plain didn't care as to the level of negative reaction that they would receive.

I once broke up a 2nd grade junior high school student picking on a 1st grade (physically handicapped) student. I pulled them apart whereas the 2nd grader proceded to grab my shirt with both hands. He quickly ended up on the floor on his back with me over him. He did not see anger in my face, he only saw that he was powerless to resist. That day he learned a valuable lesson. We later became best buds. He just needed to learn that his behavior was unacceptable. Physical persuasion can be done tactifully without anyone getting hurt. A firm but kind hand can go a long way.

Curiously there is no mention of his parents or home environment considering he is a 'minor' and all. Assuming that he is living at home as most '19 year old minors' do in Japan. And how did he have access to a 3D printer? It's not like you can walk into your local K's Denki and buy one. Or can you...?

I realize that this article is about the fall of Kisenosato, however the part about women being "ritually unclean" is the part that I will remember. So much of Japan is controlled by the oyaji blue bloods and sumo is no different. Kisenosato is mearly the latest victim of such thinking. Hope he can rise above.

This "injustice" system is just shaming Japan more and more every day. GIVE HIM HIS DAY IN COURT!!

No doubt his nutritional needs are not being met. As indicated by him apparently losing some 10kg. Such a dramatic weight loss in such a short period of time could easily compromise his health in any number of ways. Especially for a person of 62. Given his background and lineage, there is little chance that he will give in to the demands of the prosecutors.
Meanwhile the world is watching. Nothing short of a world media blitz on Japan and its archaic justice system and practices is going to help Ghosn. And even then, the Japanese powers that be have their heads so far up their combined asses, that more than likely nothing will change.
Poor excuse for an apparently modern society.

Thats pretty melodramatic. If theyre responsibly fished and populations are sustained then people eating whales doesn’t impact people who don’t whatsoever.
Melodramtic indeed. May I remind you of Star Trek IV - The Voyage Home? And I quote, "They like you very much, but they are not the hell 'your' whales."
