    15 year olds are still children under the law in Japan. Is it be correct to chase children on the road thus provoking an accident? No, the answer is to alert other police in the area and follow the children (at a distance)until they can safely be apprehended......

    Provoking the accident? Wasn't the police's fault. Did you miss the fact that they had already ran a red light and was going down the wrong way of the street? The girl riding the minibike was already provoking an accident** before **the police attempted to stop them. Unless you don't think going through red lights and driving on the wrong way of the street is not provoking an accident?

    While barriers could have prevented this accident, this is another reason why people shouldn't be running on the platforms, many warnings that people often ignore, just like talking on your phone on the platforms. Sure train companies have a responsibility to protect customers, but customers also have a responsibility as well to stay safe, and running on train platforms is not one of them.

    Facts: -Girl didn't have a license -Girl didn't have a helmet -Girls drove through a RED light -Girls drove down the WRONG WAY of a street.

    Who's fault is the accident? The police? WHAT? Man some of you really want to blame the police for every single thing bad that ever happens. My train was late, blame it on the police. Getting old.

    Truth is, NTV will benefit from this anyway from all the hype caused by the media they'd probably see a hike in viewership. Later, she will end up interviewing some new hot baseball player, and she'd be married off by 2018 when she's 25. Typical Japanese news announcer job.

    Before we jump the gun, who knows it could of been material from the woman's own teeth, I mean, she's eating McDonalds, it can't be good for you tobegin with, even though the person has denied that being the case, we don't have all the details yet.

    As with news in the US, there are people willing to jump on the bandwagon for some publicity. Let's wait and see for the investigation.

    In the whole scheme of things (number of people served vs incidents), McDonalds food and it's industry is much safer and more regulated or rather scrutinized, rather than trying to cover-up these incidences like some other companies have done.

    I don't know if they should start selling Mochi with packaging like cigarettes, with big fat warnings on them, though I doubt that will work.

    Note to self: Don't eat mochi by myself.

    Sugawara has admitted he is the man in the photos but denied stealing anything from the woman.

    Looking at the video, I see he's holding what appears to be high heels...

    I am all for chasing people who have known to have murdered or raped or represent a know threat to life but to >continue to drive at dangerous speeds on a public road no matter who you are is pure stupidity. Take the plate and >send them a fine.

    The guy took off just when the police flashed their lights at him, that's pretty much when the accident happened, it's not like the police was chasing the guy for miles and miles then the accident happened. Any case the was under the influence, who knows he would of killed/injured someone anyway by turning the wrong way and driving drunk, police or no police present. Isn't that a threat to life in itself.

    Magnet, unfortunately having a military guy as a leader almost always leads to a dictatorship

    Not always the case. Churchill was an officer in the British military, he also held many military type positions throughout his career before becoming Prime Minister. As mentioned Eisenhower was also the Supreme Allied Commander but did not become a dictator after WW2.

    This warning is hardly "news" as it has been the standard warning on the US Embassy's site for Tokyo for years now.

    No DNA test for sexual abuse?

    Who says there wasn't a test, but remember this crime was illegal dumping of a body. As you know usually these charges are later upgraded to murder/manslaughter as it is standard procedure to charge someone with illegal disposal of a body before they get upgraded to another charge or trial of murder/manslaughter etc.

    Police suspect that a dog breeder might be responsible Are police stupid, of course that is the case

    Watch too many crime dramas do we?

    How are the police stupid if they suspect a dog breeder? Looking at the facts, the is the most logical suspect group to look at *to suspect and investigate. It is the opposite of stupidity.

    Stupidity would mean: "45 dogs abandoned" "Police suspect 12 year old child in Mexico as the perpetrator".

    SMBC Aviation ? Another airline I wont be flying

    So without any reasoning you simply say you won't be flying an airline? At least support your argument. "they don't have good food", "service is poor" or something.

    As noted this is not an Airline it is a leasing company that leases airplanes out to many of the world's airlines (odds are you flew on an airplane leased by this company).

    The police raided the dormitory in connection of an arrest made last month. The police don't raid other bad people so the police shouldn't raid these people then? Some of you claim the police have a double standard, but you then apply a a double standard yourself. So pretty much the police are dang if the do and dang if they don't especially with the folks on JT who use every single excuse in the book (getting old) to bash the police. Obamacare, well that's the Japanese police's fault too.

    Misleading headline as the men were arrested and are being deported for violating the Immigration and Control act, they were not in Japan for their stated purpose and a status (visa) violation, as mentioned in the article.
