The problem is that today, teenagers have violence in all kinds of forms served to them on a silver plate. It's glorified in computer games giving the impression to "kill with style" and use at least three f-bombs in every sentence. Way to go for the next generation of low life.

China's Communist regime will fall, sooner or later. It's time for Japanese and USA businesses to move to other Asian countries and give China a taste of how it will stand without economic partnership. Young, Chinese citizens already got a taste of freedom, now they won't let themselves being crushed down by the government so easily anymore. Of course for a while it will get more and more ugly inside China.
The question is what the US will do. Giving in to China is like feeding a monster. The arrogance and ignorance that the Chinese government shows is without comparison.

I feel sorry for the woman and her husband. Having lost my own wife just three months ago I know very well how he must feel now.
This lowlife had absolutely no consciousness about what a profound tragedy he created. I hope he get's a life sentence without the chance for parole. Or worse.

@Homeschooler Are you trying to educate me? You probably won't understand this but the problem is that because of people like you (and people like Ewan above who automatically designates everyone as a paedo who has a different opinion than him) the world becomes more and more a place where everyone instantly draws the guns about the slightest glimpse of suspicion. In the US or elsewhere west this might already be the case but please keep your western thinking outside when entering Japan. The atmosphere that people like you are creating will be a much more far-reaching problem.

I once saw a small girl crossing the street and I saw that some sort of pendant dropped in the middle of the street that was attached to her backpack. So I talked to her to tell her that she had lost something on the street. She went back to pick it up before the lights turned red again. If I didn't tell her, the next thing that would have happened is that a couple of cars would have rolled over the item. I guess next time it's better to just be an ignorant like anyone else around you.

What's the deal with the Ospreys anyway? Why are the people of Okinawa so against it? Helicopters and Fighter Jets crash, too, yet there's no complaining about these. If it's a hidden complain about the Futenma base: the Okinawan's need to get the bigger picture and realize just how important that base is in this area, especially in these times.

As ridiculous as China can get. Senkaku Islands are Japanese after all.

You see ... one reason why I like Japan so much is because Japanese have high moral an manners. Something that the average Chinese not only lacks but they probably don't even know these two words.

It's amazing how much dirt the Chinese Government has stuck on its boots yet anyone is keen on doing business with such a rogue country. It would be best for the future of mankind if just any business abandons China. Maybe then China will stop being that fat and corrupt glutton that tries to claim any piece of earth they deem useful for themselves. Give them Senkaku now and next time they claim that India or whole Japan was historically belonging China.
