They probably wanted to avoid having to say コンドーム for short.
Better nomenclatures (than マンション) could have been:
... but we're stuck forever with マンション.

The father was only 77 years old and under the care of a mental institution.
They willingly took him out and killed him the next day. No way could the father have been in the right state of mind to consider the gravity of this option and give consent.

Good for Shogo for the making the most of a second chance. Cheering him on to bring great social change and to serve as an inspiring role model for the scores of others who have the slightest doubts in themselves about their ability to stay straight and become a productive member of society.
In case Shogo already hasn't, I'd recommend that he get in contact with others who have an inspiring story like himself and start a global, collaborative effort -- People like:
Prof. Aaron Kinzel, another former incarceree who has gone on to become a professor at the University of Michigan and who is an inspiration for prison reform.https://www.huffpost.com/entry/from-ex-prisoner-to-professor-and-prison-reform-advocate_b_58acba34e4b040d4868a61c2
Michael Santos who served 26 years of a 45-year sentence and there discovered, by chance, a book on Socrates and philosophy. That book turned him around enough to educate himself in prison and end up becoming an adjunct professor at San Francisco State University in criminal justice. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_G._Santos
Last but not least, there's Dr. Stanley Andrisse, a professor at Johns Hopkins and Howard University whose road is similar to Shogo's and whose mission now is lessen the stigma former prisoners face when trying to establish themselves in their return to society.

Like Shogo mentions, and which I found the others to mention similarly, the recidivism rates are high, particularly when there isn't a strong and sustainable support system. I think the four of them (as well as other inspirational people like them) NEED to get together.
All the best.
