she went missing in 2012, so where has she been since then? what about the DNA evidance, was she held as a sex slave or something? was she raped ? load of questions need to be asked, if they were involved with her murder, the sentence should be a lot higher.

how much research can be done on 200 odd mink whales? Iam sure you can get a lot of data from 1 dead whale, so why 200 odd whales? do these scientists know what they are doing?? has there ever been a program on TV showing the wasteful slaughter of whales, and how they are hunted? Iam shure if they did the amount of whales will drop drematicly over night.

How dead do you have to be to qualify to be dead? Bizzar! Once the doctors have declared someone to be dead that should be the end of the matter. Why is the age limit 10? Don’t children need a new kidney or something? do you have to 10 or over to get ill? Loosing a loved one is always very hard and to make the decision to donate there loved ones organs, believe me it is hard because I had to make that call not only a few weeks ago, but it’s a decision that was the right one, at least other people will get a better quality of life. In I think its Sweden or Finland organ donation is automatic, but you can remove your self from the transplant list if you so wish.
May be this should be implemented in Japan?
May be something good will come out of this child death, like revising the age limit, or just getting people to talk about organ donation. As some one said to me the other week, “only the good die young” well if she was 6, she must have been very good and kind person, RIP little one, and my heart goes out to her parents.

60 BILLION yen, wow what a shed load of cash!! I thinking where that could be better spent, I keep thinking of housing, small business loans (no interest) to get small businesses up and running again, fishing boats, cafes, tourist stuff bringing tourists into out laying villages. new schools, the list goes on, although I support mr Abe but, this is unnecessary expenditure is a bit daft when your facing these problems within the economy, especially when its just for votes and politics,

Iam all in favour of self defence classes, Judo, Karate, to name a few, if these hentai muppets are about at least they might get a swift kick in the ****** it might give them something to think about next time, hopefully there won't be a next time. why should they have a free for all approach on children?

if killing these whales is in the interest of science, can we see this date that is gathered? Iam sure it will never turn up, but any cut in the killing of whales is good news.

Yoko, its not only the car culture, its lazy culture, mc Donalds, other burgers, huge portions, take away, no exercise, lack of good healthy cooking (teaching) in school culture as well.
and don't forget the UK is waddling up close behind and possibly over taken the USA in the super size stakes.

I think its about time F1 caps the amount each team spends on motor car racing, lets face it Ferrari have stacks of money to throw at development and research new tyres, ect but some of the smaller manufacturers don't have the same budget, and thats why they are in this situation. or has Bernie Ecclestone got to greedy? his wealth is estimated at $4.8 billion, could this have something to do with the smaller companies going under? but good luck to Kobi san either way.

The tax level in Japan is way to low in the UK the VAT is at 20% + other taxes especially on fuel, yes its going to be unpopular, but when is a tax ever popular? too many imported goods like fuel won't help the economy, may be closing up off shore banking loop holes or big companies pay there way rather than avoiding paying tax. this would raise the moral of the public,

when I first saw this article, my first reaction was was/did she accidentley tear her skirt and was affraid to tell her (possibly stricked) parents? that would seem logical to me, if this slashing of skirts is quite common can any one back it up with satistics or hard evidance? why is it only skirt? or isit jackets or tops as well? can any one tell me why its only skirts? is it a fettish thing? or isit a power thing?

I dont think that a 1 year old child understands the differance between right and wrong at that age, but to punish her that harshley, is wrong.

200 hours over time in a month, thats about 7 hours a day over time!! way to much, Here in the UK there is a big Japanese car manufacture (iam not saying which one) but when they first started operating they told the work force the two hours over time was compulsory and they wasn't being paid, most of the staff walk of the job after the 8 hours. and left them in the poo, the Japanese management could not understand why the Brits did this, now they pay them the over time.
Is this one of the reasons Japan is so insular? this mind set of crapping on the work force would not be taken lightly from work force from out side Japan
