This is the same guy who called the Coronavirus a hoax some days ago? The US are just the laughing stock of t he world these days.

Posted in: New service pays 'bounty hunters' to catch shoplifters and train gropers See in context

100.000/year is really not a high number. Also, implementing such a „service“, you don’t have to wait long for the scammers. Especially in the case of chikan, where false accusations are already well known of.

The United States are not a good example for how to treat refugees. Just look at those concentration camps they have at their borders, holding refugees like cattle, denying regular showers and toothbrushes, sexually assaulting female refugees, etc. Stay real Japan, you’re doing more for them than the countries listed in the article.

This is one of the cases which you shouldn’t judge from the outside (like almost all cases). Both sides have plausible versions supported by circumstantial evidence (taxi driver, e-Mails, etc.) There is no proof. The verification of one or the other version is the key, which will be difficult. Best for both sides would be to reach a settlement outside of the court, no matter who’s the culprit here. At least that’s my experience from when I was a public prosecutor in Germany based on the informations I could get on this case.

Yoshi, Japanese people want to eat high quality beef from time to time. Many don’t care about the cost (depends on who you ask of course) and nearly nobody cares about it coming from America. America does not really have the reputation for producing good beef, compared to other countries.

Posted in: Ratio of women in parliament brought into focus in Japan's election See in context

Woman or man, it doesn’t matter. The better gets my vote. Also, Japanese women are often ok with living from their hubbys salary. Hell, my wife says, she’d like to stop working with end of 30 (we have two young children now in our mid 30s) and it’s ok. What I want so say: it will be really difficult to get an equal amount of women into parliament. Forcing something is never good. And the question is, is it really necessary? Or wouldn’t it be more necessary to instead get rid of the many oyajis, holding those woman down who choose to have an career?
