The man needs lessons on humility. Maybe if he had to perform lewd acts to alleviate "the stress" he's caused his constituents and other parties involved ..he'd realize it's best to keep his opinions to himself rather than make Japan a mockery in the eyes of the world. He's managed to nullify any true apology Japan has made in the past all in a few weeks time...Great Job ! Someone pass the Darwin Award to this genius

So much for the saying "you never know what's going on behind closed doors" this article hits that bang on ( pardon the expression ) the button. Everyone mention in this article is at fault to some degree including the husband for obviously not being able to satisfy his wife's needs. None of this is anyone's business . She shouldn't have to apologize to the public for being human and going through the trials of life like everyone else out here .

@real. I've been here for over a decade and have my doubts about your statement. I know in my area the number of violent crime instances has risen. So either I live in the only problem area and recently the news has decided to sensationalize these instances or you are wrong.

Nonsense , how can line be targeted and not yahoo,msn , viber, what's app....the list goes on. Don't want to be bullied close your account or don't give your details out.
It's easier for the staff to not confront the issue of bullying head on and blame some software.
Usage of phone in school hours should be stopped. Whatever happens from after hour conversations the school has no say

@Kazu apparently you aren't up to date on the lie detector testing. It is fool proof unless you are some social path who's been trained to beat blood pressure and infra red signatures. Anyone can learn to control their heart rate , no one can control chemical fluctuations released by brain patterns.
You also made yourself a hypercritical person by making that statement . What you are saying is some person on the train who states she was accosted doesn't need to prove age was and only had to say she was. The accused who may be innocent can state he was wrongly accused and should be refuted . Show the fingerprints on your &ss or take the test.
My suggestion is be a little more righteous and have both commit to eliminatory questioning then pay the price. Maybe if women were targeted for monetary gains with a penalty for destroying someone's life just to make a buck for themselves or some yak hood they'd think twice.
Just in case people are doubting this ...think about the innocent married men or single aspiring men that have their lives destroyed because of this archaic 99% conviction rate

Insist on a lie detector test. They can use them, they do have them. Get her to commit to taking it as well. Everyone knows there are gropers out there but I'm sure there are just as many money hungry girls willing to settle on a quick falsely earned dollar.

Morons ....The people of Japan need to force retirement onto both of these idiots before they both make this situation already worse than it is. They are the exact type of idiots that show and question whether Japan truly learned from its mistakes of ww2

There's no way they can predict what will happen and on what magnitude . It all depends on the ripple effect ,how many and direction of them. Once again the "experts" will be caught with their pants down. If you look at the population and the number of deaths last time it happened there and multiply the population (saying buildings are safer is misleading) plus all the tinder box houses built within inches of each other . They are shooting low. Just take a look at the congested power line services when you walk down the street...think about the gas lines underneath ...reflect back on Osaka and Kobe ...Tokyo and Kanagawa will look like a few N bombs dropped here.
They'll blame the panel of experts and all insurance companies will go bankrupt or burn up in flames ( records included )

Yub, go back and read again. The article is about China messing around with subs and ships. The comment is in reference to China parking/passing through those waters....but never mind see what you want to see and that's what you'll see. You don't by any chance spend time on too of a van in front of train stations do you ??

Yubaru what's your point ?? Failed to see why you made that comment where the point I was making had nothing to do with whether Japan had their own or not.
CrazedinjapanMay. 15, 2013 - 08:01AM JST
Sounds a lot like a feeling out process. How far China thinks Japan will go and when they'll actually respond aggressively . The unknown for China is when will the USA step in? Well keep parking Subs too close to Okinawa and you may find out. I have a feeling that shortly we'll wake up and China will be all over those islands

Hope the check every message posted and her computer , wouldn't put it past the young woman to use this as a cash grab ( sorry money ) sounds a lot like entrapment.
She let him go too far if she didn't know him before the other guy jumped in on it. Sounds like she knew what she was into and is playing the police as well.
Other than that typical Hentai stuff out of Japan.

So what you are saying is that humans trump all life and all life has no equal value to our own?? Two sides to every story and I do believe the tactics used by the Japanese Whalers this is was just as dangerous in regards to putting lives (including their own ) at risk.

A barbaric misleading practice held in the name of science. What ever happened to catch and release ?? People will donate. All it takes is 4,000,000 people at 1$ per to raise that and I think with the global support this group is gaining shouldn't be a issue.
It's also only labeled illegal by a few countries and hunting (in the name of science) in Australia's territorial waters with the permission of Australia is illegal which is why Japan now is being taken to court itself.
GO SS !!
