In the absence of clear information, the human mind tries to make sense of what we encounter. IMO, those who want to assist would-be suicide victims are offering their "help" for some selfish reason. I suspect sex is what they're after.

Japan’s record on safety is rapidly being eroded due to the financial pain felt by the less fortunate

Nah, the internet just makes it possible for us to read what's been happening all along. Japan is still the safest country I know of.

Poor girl, poor man, poor family -- I keep saying it, but I wish there was more support & outreach for mentally suffering people in this country before tragedies like this happen. Calling someone a monster afterward is easy -- but working to prevent incidents like this in the future is a tough challenge.

Completely agree.

"Even if people say we don't need to worry about a tsunami, I won't buy it," said a 50-year-old male worker. "I learned from my bitter experience 10 years ago and that's why I evacuated."

Amen brother.

Posted in: Ghosn asks why Japanese don't come and question him in Lebanon See in context

It's a beautiful country, with a lot of charm. Don't let tabloid media tell you what to think.

I don't doubt that. Ghosn circus aside, Lebanon has really tried to be neutral over the years. They were the only ME country to form a coalition government.

Growing swell of support by Congress for Trump to be impeached and removed from office immediately.

I worry about pardons yet to come. Your suggestion prevents that from happening.

Always be on guard. Nutcases everywhere in japan like this lunatic. And they’re on the loose, no one to keep watch of them or keep them indoors.

This phenomena isn't limited to Japan. Take the USA, where mental health facilities released patients (in the mid-1970's) to community group homes until their funds, too, dried up. Now these patients live on the streets

I've always opposed the time of the event: Japan's hottest most humid season. I'm thinking mainly of the elderly who will die by the hundreds from heat stroke while waiting for an ambulance to arrive.

Such negativity escapes me. Japan is about to do the right thing and some of you can only criticize. Are things going so well in your native countries?

I would love to hear from those who successfully met the restrictions for those holding a zairyu card. The whole enchilada of getting a permission letter from their local Japanese embassy to securing a negative result on a PCR test within 72 hours of landing at the airport.
