Good. This is Japan, a land of work. They can always go to Australia which is more accepting.

I was reading that pedophiles are born with their sickness. It is also incurable. I show sympathy to them. It's the same as being attracted to any persona type, but in this case being illegal. There is two different pedophiles... one that molests and one that doesn't.
Still I agree that families should be made aware of previous offenders, for the right to be safe.
Posted in: When pedophiles or minors convicted of violent crimes are released from prison, do you think residents in communities they move to should be informed of who they are and where they are living?

All government people steal and miss use money. Think about it, what makes them more important to you? Nothing. All the government does is suck money from your pockets, making laws that imprison you.

@YongYang Too true. The government keeps pushing for NUKE power yet we seem to be doing fine without it. I think it's time Japan invested in some hydro dams.

The ninja police looked awesome! Good work to the police. I actually pity this guy. I have suffered from drinking problems in the past, and yes drinking + mental issues can cause you to act off your rocker. I have done it many times, once covering myself in vegemite and running around in my undies. Luckily the police saw the funny side of it.

Their bodies are most likely not even there. Just stones there. This apartment is being built for people that are alive and need a place to live. Who comes first? Dead people or living people?
