Posted in: Father arrested for fatally stabbing 48-year-old son See in context

48-year-old son having "trouble" with his 70-year-old dad.

There is no statement she was walking around with a knife in her with no pain. The stabbing could have happened as she was felt the pain and looked down.

I guess no one in Japan heard of bean-bag shotguns to deal with knives suspects - shooting a real gun randomly is crazy

Some people here practice gun safety - common sense would tell you a bullet always have to land somewhere and it does not drop like a feather. I had a child in my community die from a falling bullet through their roof to the kid while sleeping.

"You don’t just get beaten to death for no reason in Japan."

The first comment is blaming mental illness, typical excuse. But if someone else does the same crime the first comment is calling for executions, cruel and unusual punishment

Posted in: Woman re-arrested for dumping body of first newborn child in Tochigi Prefecture See in context

This is the Japanese man's fault - he had sex with a woman and not checking on her well-being after she quietly killed two of his children. She said he didn't have financial means, why didn't he get a job to support his sexual habits?

Posted in: Japan targets ultra-rich travelers to boost regional revival See in context

Don't think the thought of radioactive water swirling around the hull of a docked superyacht will motivate the ultra-rich to show up. For now, Japan is for the cheapskates buying resale watches, bags, and electronics.

Posted in: Controversial U.S. livestreamer 'Johnny Somali' arrested in Osaka See in context

"Guys set back race relations between blacks and the Japanese a decade"

they not even the worst - they had a white guy describing how to sleep with Japanese women and on video, he would put his hand on the back of a Japanese lady head when she bowed and push towards his crotch on YouTube - you wished Japanese stop liking Black people.

These are people on Twitch livestreaming requests to shock Japanese people because they believe Japanese are easily offended and docile.

The guy in this video targeted a popular Japanese Instagram personality and made her cry on live stream - again no Japanese media is covering this trend against Japan

Just FYI,

There are several YouTube "prank/kick" crews setting up in Japan to insult/harass/prank Japanese people right now for YouTube views - the Japanese government is doing nothing about it and they are not being covered either.

I have never heard of this "USB-C" thing before in 2023, I'm a Lighting diehard person, and sounds like this "USB-C" is some woke EU agenda to put us under their control
