"Japan should press the Philippines government and ask why Japanese men are being targeted in Philippines regularly. A temporary visa ban will get the Philippines government moving."

Probably because they are men involved in organised crime and up to no good mixing with other people involved in organized crime and up to no good.

Let's hope it's the right man they have arrested and not just someone they can fit up to close the case. I don't have much trust or confidence in the Japanese police or justice system.

@strangerland What kind of reform style punishment would you advocate? One thing is for certain though, handing over a wad of cash and saying sorry is completely unacceptable.

Posted in: University student arrested for pushing his girlfriend off train platform See in context

@strangerland Nobody is saying he should be locked up forever, just punished accordingly for the crime, be that attempted murder or whatever charge is brought against him. I presume there were CCTV cameras on the platform so a clear picture of the circumstances will be able to be seen. @tiger_tanaka I agree, it's good that she was unharmed. That's as far as my agreeing with you will go.

@tiger_tanaka You are own your on this thread with this bizarre way of thinking. How harmonious and peaceful is it to throw someone in front of a moving train? While gun crime is not a problem here there seems to be plenty of random and premeditated knife crime but as long as the perpetrator is from a good family you think they should be shown leniency. I find this quite unbelievable and offensive. I hope you are joking.

Posted in: University student arrested for pushing his girlfriend off train platform See in context

@tiger_tanaka I don't care if it's a highly intelligent student at a prestigious university or a homeless man living under a bridge, if you commit a serious crime you should be punished to the full letter of the law. So, for example, if an elite student from an elite university attacks you and burns down your house you would be quite happy to accept an apology and that would be the end of it? Your argument is very strange and surely not the viewpoint of the average sensible Japanese person.

@tiger_tanaka I completely disagree. I believe in there being consequences for such criminal behaviour and I believe in appropriate punishments. Without this there is no deterrent for reoffending or other criminal acts.

tiger_tanaka at Nov. 08, 2016 - 05:03PM JST We Japanese sometimes do get a little carried away when drinking too much. That is why it is common when us Japanese have done something wrong to blame it on alcohol. What he did was wrong but most importantly the the girl is okay. I'm sure he has reflected upon his misjudgment and apologized profusely to the girl and her family for his behaviour.

That makes it ok does it? So, you are saying that people can do whatever like like as long as they apologise and bow deeply a few times?

Toshiko, do you think it's normal for all these suspects to quickly confess to their crimes? Do you ever wonder what happens in the interrogation rooms, which aren't equipped with video cameras?

Posted in: Uber finally makes inroads in aging Japan See in context

Japanese taxis are a rip off, the most expensive I've experienced anywhere in the world. I used Uber in the States recently and it's great. It's really cheap and extremely convenient. I hope it comes to all of Japan but I'm not holding my breath. Japanese people will probably deem it to be dangerous and the government will protect the taxi companies.
