Amazing the number of dislikes to perfectly reasonable and compssionate comments and just shows how may people, mostly Japanese I would assume, actually support the inhumane behviour of the Immigration Departmment.

That is like saying if somebody gets drunk and kills somebody the person who sold the alcohol should be jailed or in Singapore executed. What the person does when under the influence of anything is completely and totally their responsibility.

No pity and no excuses for blatant evil. The woman has killed a defenseless child, has anyone missed that part. The only pity I have is for people making excuses for her and for those that have even the slightest amount of sympathy for her. She has shown her true colours and she has show the sort of person she is. She is a selfish and evil killer.

Posted in: Japan took in 20 asylum seekers in 2017 from nearly 20,000 applications See in context

I would love to see more foreigners as it is kind of lonely here but then I think it would be very lonely for the immigrants too as they would not have people from their own communities to associate with and they would find it almost impossible to assimilate. I think it is much better they apply in Europe, Australia or America. Better for them. If they are accepted here it is good for Japan though as it will add much needed diversity.

I registered with them and that took 2 weeks and was all set to invest but it all seemed to complicated and unpredicatable and really it is not my style to make money from money in this way. Maybe it will go through the roof but I will not be there to enjoy the proceeds. I am not a gambler and never have gambled except with love.

Maybe I should publish a book about being physically abused and emotionally abused everyday and almost killed by my step father from the age of 5 to 14......but nobody would read it because nobody cares about little boys. Disgusting.

Basically its a gamble. You admit to something you may or may not have done for a guarantee of a lesser sentence in the fear you may be found guilty of something you didnt do and get a higher sentence. Welcome to the corrupt shambolic American judicial system.

Looking at pure evil. Punishment or no punishment, they need to be locked up in a secure institution and removed from society. For a very long time or at least they can properly assessed.

Very dangerous to use white line crossing here because not all drivers stop. Some do but it only takes one not to. Usually children are crossing alone as well so that makes it more dangerous. Instruct your child if possible, even if it is a longer walk, to use a crossing that has lights.

Posted in: Size matters - in your face See in context

Wow, I thought I was the only one that noticed that. Men can get away with it because of their bigger bodies size, but women cannot. Some of them look like cartoon characters. Even more so with their tiger teeth, bent legs and waddling walk. I have noticed as well in the last 9 years, heads are getting bigger. That said some of them are still in proportion and are nice and petite and very pretty. Why heads are getting bigger I have no idea. Obviously the genetic predisposition is there but what is causing to be expressed I do not know. Diet maybe. Arrogance. Lol.

Posted in: Newborn baby dies after being found floating in Ibaraki canal See in context

While the chances of survival at 20 weeks is very low, babies can survive if born at 20 weeks if they receive treatment quickly and are not born prematurely because of pre exisiting health condition and the neo natal care facilities are adequate. However I doubt the mother knew any of this and even if she did it is no excuse for not calling an ambulance and throwing the baby in a canal. Barbaric.

Posted in: Japan's traffic deaths drop to record low under 3,700 in 2017 See in context

Very lower rate than most other countries too, considering a lot of people do not wear seat belts and children are hardly ever restrained and drivers seem to be constantly texting. I do not know why. Maybe because the Japanese drive more slowly and more sensibly in comparison to elsewhere. Maybe that is it.

Posted in: Man arrested for murder of mother in Aomori See in context

I am not sure and I do not have any statistics but while Japan does have a very low murder rate, I have a sneaking suspicion that a higher percentage of those murders are occurring within the family unit, than in most other countries. The total is still much lower than most other countries though.

Posted in: American blogger makes more extensive apology for suicide video See in context

Certainly was very insensitive but looking at the bigger picture suicide in Japan is a big problem and is something that needs to be publicised and this is what has happened. With the international spotlight turning on Japan in the lead up to 2020 it is a chance to look at the both positive and negative aspects of Japan, not just the stereotypes and start addressing the negative ones in a more effective manner. International attention can sometimes expedite that process.

Posted in: No. of death row inmates in Japan stands at 123 See in context

We only have to look at America to see that the death penalty is wrong and ineffective. America executes a lot of people but still has a high rate of homicide. So its effectiveness as a deterrent is questionable to say the least. It is also common knowledge many innocent people are executed, as the justice system is not perfect and never will be. Not there, not here, not anywhere.

Posted in: Japanese chef nabbed for sex with underage girls in Jakarta See in context

Children everywhere need to be protected from all types of exploitation and abuse. I do not differentiate, as all types of abuse and exploitation are just as evil and just as damaging. In this particular case in Indonesia, with the age of consent being 18, the girls would obviously have been under aged. This makes the offence much more egregious and heinous. The problem is that age of consent varies all around the world and even in some European countries it is as low as 14 or 15 and essentially that is a child. I am not sure which age governments from Australia or UK use to prosecute, the age of consent in the offenders country or the age of consent in the country the person has had sex.

Posted in: Kindergarten teacher arrested for abusing 2-year-old boy See in context

That is disgusting too say and just wrong. It is hard enough being an abused child as it is without people like you labelling them as abusers or potential abusers as well. Not all and very few abused children end up becoming abusers. They often are more sensitive and empathetic to the the pain, trauma and destruction abuse causes. Also do not make excuses for this women. There is no excuse for abusing a child.
