    Wow! It's so refreshing to see rebuttles from people who are clearly fresh off the boat, even if they are completely naive and lacking any sound argument from experience or knowledge e. After you have worked in over 40 different schools with over 500 different Japanese teachers and have over a decade and a half of hands-on experience teaching in Japanese schools I 'may' take your opinion seriously, but until that time comes, I suggest you get your head out of the clouds and paybattention to what is going on around you. For example, it is not uncommon to find Japanese English teachers in the 40+ age group still making listening tests on audio cassette and using Windoze XP. These same teachers are totally amazed that I can use my smart phone to record my voice and then, edit it and burn it to a CD. Yeah, people are people and they are only human, but that is no excuse for ignorance because ignorance is not an excuse. It is a handicap!

    The word 'idiot' springs to mind straight away. After a decade and a half of teaching in over 40 different schools from junior high to college and university I'm surprised half of the teachers are not in full time therapy. I also wonder how some of them manage to dress themselves every day, some of which cannot. I can only feel pity for the students who have to deal with these emotionally unstable and socially underdeveloped loons.

    North Korea is a propaganda machine and would be loving this attention from the Asian and US media. However, I don't believe North Korea would ever be stupid enough to do something like this because, if they did, it would be their last military act ever and they know this.

    In all of Japan’s 47 prefectures, the population of those aged 65 or older surpassed that of those aged 14 or younger.

    This statistic brings a whole new relevance to the term, 'shrinking violet'. An ageing and shrinking population can only spell disaster for the Japanese economy, especially due to the already failed pension system and stoned-headed economic policies from the LDP. this trend has been action and increasing for over twenty years and the J-gov seems to talk about it a lot, but they have done nothing about preparing for it. Cue Jim Morrison, "This is the end!"

    He didn't buy them online. He's just keeping his trap shut on the source. However, I reckon his career is over at Tokai.

    Katsu78 - You might want to read up on the rape sentences in Japan. It's rare that they exceed two years, unless there was excessive violence involved. However, the penalties for rape in the US have bugger all to do with this case and your post should be removed for being off-topic!

    I doubt if I'd be buying shares in a company with 60 million recalls worldwide. I just had my Takata airbag replaced.

    Four years sounds about right for a rape, but I hope this sentence would apply if the perpetrator was Japanese and not just because he is a US citizen. It's one thing to be a very racist and moncultural country, but it's another thing to hang severe panalties on someone just because they are not Japanese.

    @ Laguna - I've been a runner since I was 11 (40 years now!) and so I'm really attuned to my surroundings. I love noticing things when I'm out walking or driving. The idea of wasting that time on a smartphone seems really dumb to me. The things these poor people are missing is what is called "life."

    Posted from a smart phone, no doubt. ;D

    Why would someone kill an 88 year old woman and then cut her up? There must be a very sinister and morbid motive behind this murder. It seems odd that the cameras picked up the family leaving, but no mention of seeing anybody else.

    And, by the way, there has been three women's bodies found in Tokyo waters over the past fortnight. As I keep saying, Japan is a safe country, unless you are a woman or a child, or both.

    I cannot count the amount of teenagers I've seen miraculously avoid serious injury while walking around with their face stuck to their phones and, sadly, it's not a phenomenon solely for teenagers. They made it illegal to use a cell phone and wear earphones while riding a bicycle of driving a care, but I see it at least a few times every day. They have signs around train stations earning people of the dangers of walking around in hypnotic trance staring at your phone screen, but nobody pays attention. The only way to stop this kind of irresponsible, dangerous and stupid behavior is to set hefty fines and enforce the laws, but TIJ and laws are just guidelines.

    Ah, but you don't think this is a ploy to get a sympathy vote? "Vote for my underlings or I'll quit" Read between the lines people.

    I work in a college and 80% of my one-thousand or so 18-20 year old students don't even know where or how to vote, so I seriously doubt if we'll see much of an impact in voting numbers from the parasite generation.

    It's truly saddening and disappointing to hear this scenario repeating itself over and over again. It's pretty clear there is a major problem with aged care in Japan, which is even more alarming when you consider a third of the population is over 65.

    Yeah, two weeks before the election he spouts this rhetoric knowing full well that over 50% of the population ate against any changes to the constitution. Yet, two weeks after the election it will be back on the agenda. He's such a weasel!

    Abenomics had already failed long bore the Brexit vote. He's just looking for something else to blame instead of blaming himself and his economists for their short-sighted and naive economic recovery plan, which, after four years, has not achieved a flipping thing except, line the pockets of his cronies at the expense of the rest of the population. What happened to all your promises Abe? Increased child care and family payments, salary increases and many more campaign promises that have failed to come to the table. He's just a whimpy liar.

    This is a very common thing in Japan. They really need to make the penalties more severe to stop this kind of sick and perverted behaviour.

    She says she did out of frustration? I'm afraid her mental and emotional issues go much deeper than just simple frustration.

    What is going on in Jaoan? Is there nothing honest in the Japanese corporate and political world? Car manufacturers lying about fuel consumption. The Takata airbag scandal. Too many till-dipping politicians. The stem cell scandal. Price fixing in many industries. I could go on all day! Yeah, Japan may well be a safe country for violence, but it seems to be a dishonest and thieving country as well. Get a grip Japan!
