@ OzKen -

Apart from the penalties involved, not rendering help to a fellow human you have injured shows you are not fit to live in a normal society. Zero humanity. RIP to the poor victim.

If she isnt axed, it will be yet another sad indictment on the Abe regime. As Strangerland points out - this was money provided by the hard work of tax-payers. A LOT of money.
Abe is simply gonna have to find another token to decorate his sham cabinet.

Rest in Peace to the poor, innocent woman with her life ahead of her.
Im just hoping this awful creep will be tried, and executed - lest he be given a "life" sentence that actually means 15-20 years. There would be a possibility that he would kill again once released at around 40.

Individuals with class and decency - such as the Japanese Emperor - forever stay away from this place. Any international fallout will be richly deserved.

Abbott - the failed Catholic priest - would likely get beaten up by the average 12-year-old - let alone Putin, a noted judoka.All the "shirt-fronting" talk is just his desperate attempt to win some popularity. Whatever happened to his initial tough -talk that Putin wasn't even getting an invite ?

Sadly, Japan has proven herself unable to safely manage and operate nuclear technology in times of peace. The last thing Japan needs - or can manage - would be nuclear weapons.

I wonder if these sad individuals are also complaining about the plethora of REAL noise-pollution here : the election vans, ear-splitting station announcements, black-van neo-nazis blaring hate-speech, advertising trucks and so on? I doubt it. The sound of kids playing is rare and a million times better than all this other noise we are bombarded with here.

I have to respect the livers of the average salaryman - they must be made of cast-iron! But I can't really respect the system of putting one's family on a lower priority than one's company. I have almost never heard any of my uni students express a wish to become a salaryman after graduation, which is quite telling.

I just hope Mr. Tomita bows deeply to the media, sobs uncontrollably, pounds his fists into the table, apologizes for this "regrettable incident", reflects sincerely during his suspension and takes the necessary measures to ensure such a "regrettable incident" does not happen again. That should do the trick.
