@ AmericanForeigner "No wonder Osaka is overrun with organized crime, with such an errant police force. Those of you who claim Osaka to be "safe" need to spend more time here on JT. Random stabbings, you name it, the place must be a nightmare." I agree please help by putting this info on other sites so the WORLDd can know how it really is over here..it will save us in the long run I'm American 2...many thanks!

@ smithinjapan "Not as often as you hear about it happening here, that's for sure, and usually there are clear cut reasons (at least in the mind of the person who attacks others). When someone goes on a rampage in another country you don't usually hear, "He bumped into me and didn't say 'excuse me'", or, "I murdered my father because he was bothering me about my cell phone", or, "She said I shouldn't do my lipstick on the train platform so I pushed her in front of the train," or, "I just felt like killing someone". You hear about this kind of random attack very often (or, 'Toorima jiken'), but it's usually a man who does it." I AGREE 100%

Especially since he made his bones in Iwate prefecture...he should financially help out his peeps indirectly according to the doctrines of " the gov of Tokyo"

"I have lived here for near 20 years and know japan has no such thing as a sex offenders register, if they did half the male population would be on it. Thing is though Japan badly needs to register these sex offenders like most other developed nations do"

I agree!!!!!!!

@The Munya Times" "Yes of course, police with high moral. I personally experienced their competency. Let me give you a sample, if it is proper for printing out on this board." me too...a friend of mine house was damaged while away in another country..when he got back..he notified the j-copz, and they fingerprinted him saying they needed to exclude his fingerprints from crime scene...

Posted in: Man arrested over death of elderly man who rebuked him for ignoring red light See in context

@ "Disillusioned"

"Sadly, I have seen this kind of thing quite regularly, although not resulting in death. Many times I have seen a loopy senior jump in to hassle someone younger about their manners and they are extremely aggressive. Just the other day I saw an old guy on the train abusing everyone for not sitting close enough together. One semi-senior intervened to calm him down and the old coot wanted to fight him. Just watch your P's and Q's people. There are plenty of nutters out there waiting for an excuse to snap."

I agree that I've seen a lot of pre snappers. One old lady and an old man got into it near a supermarket- both looked like they had blood in their eyes...but I just kept going....us gaigins have enough to worry about here in J-land.

"Once again a report that details how police could have prevented murder but again only show up after the deed is done. I agree 100%..

"How many 'warnings' does it take? =probably more than quite numerous

and what do the warnings mean when they're never backed up with action?"= life in Japan

"Many Japanese leap at the chance to take advantage of someone, especially a famous someone; they love to have the legal upper-hand here. Konishiki should have known you should never touch anyone here under any circumstances especially if you're a foreigner. He's in for a long haul with this, just like Asashoryu and we saw what happened to him." man you hit the nail on the head this is a big "setup" problem here....thanks for the info!

"Ah, parenting prowess at its best! There is a serious need for some sort of parental education in Japan. No wonder 30% of the populace grow up to have some sort of emotional or mental disorder. Some of the stories I hear about parenting an disciplining in Japan are spine chilling."

you can say that again!

@ "C'mon, don't be so hard on the J-stones. It's tough catching criminals if they don't walk into the Koban and confess."

A guy from base told me that he was driving in Shinagawa, and they mistook him for a gaigin who did something in Roppongi, so they fingerprinted him and took a DNA swab of his mouth..but let him go later....

@ Disillusioned "Do these ratbags just wake up one morning and say to themselves, "I think I'll stab someone today." These random stabbings are Japan specific and happen with alarming regularity. Yeah, people get stabbed in other countries too, but it usually cos of a fight or a robbery, but that is not the case in Japan. How many have there been in the last month? 3? 4? How about the girl slashed in the face last week? There are some serious psychological issues in Japanese society that just keep being swept under the tatami."

You hit the nail on the head.........Teach brother Teach!!!!!!!!!

@ landshark "How do you account for this disparity?" Excellent question...this site is highly moderated...if you say anything that appears to harp on J-land it gets clipped or clamped...and you also have those who vote down anything they deem as a harp..that's why we need more "outside eyes to free up the truth" ....pass the word so the big medias will take a look....or maybe an alternative site will develop.... many thanks!

@bajhista65 "To avoid this kind of incident, I think it's time for police to patrol regularly around the clock 24/7 by foot and cars, instead of just staying inside their police boxes (koban) reading newspapers, napping, and sipping their coffee."

Many people have said this a thousand times...but the keystones continue to usually come afterwards- which has also been noted a thousand times....

@ FlawlezNov. "I don't live in Japan, so excuse me if this is a stupid question, but why don't they ever put pictures with their news stories? Or a video maybe? Is there some kind of law against it or rights violations maybe?" you have definitely noticed something worthwhile....keep noticing it and you will see why...

@ Elbuda Mexicano No idea about operas but sounds more like this nut case was in love with this man's wife, he could not have her, so he did the typical low down evil selfish thing any snake in the grass would do here in Japan, dress up like a mailman, yamato takkyubin guy etc..ring your door bell and stab you, actually not as rare as many of you all here may think. RIP dead husband and burn in hell for all of eternity by wife's crazy boss. I agree!
