I could have sworn Candy Candy was on infinite loop in every convenience store when I moved here in 2011

Richard Gallagher- not making light of the culture, but here's the reality- 2 years into this we have a vaccine and masked and social distanced all we can. If you don't get a vaccine then feel free to live or die with that choice.
For everyone else who is doing everything it's time to move on and not go into hysterics and accept that this disease will be with us for an indefinite period.
Show me some stats please where vaccinated fatality rate is higher than that of the seasonal flu. I have yet to see that, yet we shut down borders, economies, and lives still like we do not have mitigations in place. It gets old.

Individuals lacking quality of life should be given the right to die peaceful, then this guy wouldn't have to be in this position.

Uhmm the coroner couldn't tell the difference between stroke and choking in the autopsy? Doesn't make sense. How many million yen were spent ultimately vindicating this poor nurse from a 200000 yen fine?

To the comment that he was a criminal- this is exactly the problem with this scenario and why this is an important issue.
Is it right for you to brand him a criminal without the presumption of innocence guaranteed by the Constitution? No. Would you assume guilt for a white man?
Is it right for the police officer to consequently based on the above to play judge, jury, and executioner? No. Would this happen for a white man?
Is it right for a suspect to be pinned down by the neck especially after being subdued by police to a non threatening state? No. Would this happen for a white man?
The BLM movement unfortunately rallies behind people with interactions with police who are then deemed to be criminals on the basis that "good people don't get arrested." However, people of color deserve the presumption of innocence that white people tend to take for granted or presume away based on this flawed assumption.

Waste of time and money to litigate a non enforceable guideline. It's about as pointless as suing the FDA because you want to eat less than the recommended vegetables per day.
