He kept an air gun in a stolen car, he drew attention to himself by firing it, he ran out of gas then ran away, leaving his girlfriend.

Grade-A loser and moron.

Will the police uphold this though? They seem pretty passive, to say the least when it comes to policing driving. Definitely reactive, rather than proactive.

They'll probably make a push for the first two weeks then not bother about it.

Posted in: 2 Japanese men admit roles in killing of taxi driver in Cambodia See in context

@Norman - It’s a strange case, I read about it in a Cambodian newspaper.

The two men owed ¥4,000,000 to someone so decided to steal an SUV, this taxi and use it to commit further unspecified crimes. After killing the taxi driver (they claim this was unintentional) which was seen by a witness, they drove 300 yards up the road and rear-ended a truck then were apprehended.

It is a bizarre story.

**I misread. It was the prosecutor who claimed addiction.

Unless that’s a translation error, that’s just complete nonsense.

Posted in: Former Toyota rugby player pleads guilty to cocaine possession See in context

@Trapped: it’s not reading between the lines, that’s exactly what happened and has been reported in the news. The Japanese player stupidly put the coke in his wallet and proceeded to leave his wallet in the back of a taxi. The wallet got found by the taxi driver and, of course the taxi company grassed him up to the cops. The cops then did their 23 day interrogation and, of course the Japanese player grassed up the Kiwi, Yates.

Despite his teammate being busted, Yates didn’t bother to get rid of his coke and weed then, a week later got busted himself. A couple of complete morons living in a country full of tell-tales, narcs and grasses.

The part of this story I don’t get is the Japanese player admitted being addicted to cocaine (even though he said he only did it once or twice a month in pre-season) but his defence team said he wasn’t addicted.

@sensei258 "He's famous"

No, he isn't. I'd never heard of him, had you?

He is a grass / narc though who sang like a canary. If all this is true, the guy Yates is a complete idiot, as is this fellow. Dumb and dumber.

Posted in: 2 children killed in car-truck crash in Hokkaido See in context

I don’t understand all the downvoting on anyone suggesting the children weren’t seatbelts in the comments here.

She had a chest injury: that sounds like a whiplash injury someone wearing a seatbelt might sustain.

The truck driver had a head injury: that sounds like he was wearing a seatbelt and his face hit the steering wheel.

Two kids dead and two seriously injured: it sounds like they were unsecured and thrown around like rag dolls.

Reading this information, coupled with the amount of unrestrained children you see travelling in cars here makes the assumption that they weren’t wearing seatbelts or in baby seats very understandable.

@Strangeland, are you still denying there is a problem in Japan with children travelling unrestrained in their parents’ cars?

@Strangerland

Start looking in random cars stopped in traffic, you'll soon see it.

The worst one I saw was a lady who had a baby strapped to her chest while driving. One minor bump that set off her airbag would have had catastrophic consequences.

@smithinjapan

Right. It’s one of the great hypocrisies of Japan that a country which has such a safety first, err on the side of caution attitude to most things seems to have such a laissez faire attitude towards child seat belts and baby seats.

It amazes me that most Japanese parents don’t seem to give this a single thought.

You see children unsecured in cars, jumping up and down in the front seats every day.

“The weapon of choice is irrelevant.”

I think it is very relevant in this case. I sincerely doubt the assailant would have been able to kill 33 grown adults in a 3-story building with knives in the same ease he did with gasoline and fire

Kerosene doesn’t ignite the way gasoline does. I don’t think you can set kerosine alight with a lighter.

Gas stations shouldn’t sell jerry cans of gasoline for people to take away. I believe this practice is banned in my home country, the UK.

Look at what can be done with them in the wrong hands.

@Ganbare Japan, you know the lead singer of KA-TUN got arrested for possession of a small amount of marijuana right? How can you live with a person who is a fan of such a criminal? The kind of criminal who threatens innocent Japanese people. You're going to have to consider divorce.

@Ascissor. It’s still early mate....

I’ll rebute it in advance by saying that in the West, these sex abuse cases aren’t swept under the carpet and ignored because it’s embarrassing, might upset someone and we like the professional work of the sex case in question.

“There is no debate. The death penalty is still a just and necessary punishment. Anyone who has it handed to them likely is deserving of it. Case and point, those Aum scumbags.”

In my opinion, the system here; with the police having the power to question suspects for up to 23 days without their legal counsel being present and the amount of confessions that system brings makes having the death penalty an extremely dangerous thing. A very, very concerning thing.
