Yes, Japanese legal MINIMUM WAGES are a joke! Go to NOVA and they are talking about 800 YEN for a 40 minute lesson as a starting base and then if your students show up, depending on the number they play the POPULARITY GAME and you may get an EXTRA 200 YEN!! WOW!! FOR NATIVE ENGLISH TEACHERS even in TOKYO, one of the most expensive cities in the world! So go figure!

This a very sad, tragic, terrible thing to happen. Since about 2/3 of Japan's land is mountains, and with such a large population, crowed into any areas that DO NOT HAVE MOUNTAINS, sadly will always leaves those who end up living near or next these mountains that are very beautiful but in bad weather, we can see what MOTHER NATURE can do to us, even in the land of HIGH TECH, even the the HIGHEST TECHNOLOGY, is NO MATCH against the FURY of MOTHER NATURE!!! RIP

There were WITNESESS who saw them arguing a nd CAMERA FOOTAGE of them getting into a taxi, and most likely that taxi also has cameras, and the driver can be summoned to help in this case, so now it is just a PUZZLE, time to put all the pieces together and these 3 idiot fools should get convicted of MURDER!!

Page?? A Jesus loving KILLER?? Hates Blacks, gays, Mr.Obama, etc..."I will kill EVERYBODY" and this idiot fool is a POLICE MAN?? What kind of scum knuckles down to the ground do they have in the Missouri police department??I have NEVER been to Missouri but, I do not want to sound close minded, but it just sounds like a disgusting, horrible, backwards, racist, hypocritical, arrogant Southern Bible Belt hell hole. I may be wrong, maybe there are some good people there, but just from all of these reports, makes ARIZONA look like a real nice, open minded kind of place. I do hope justice is served, even though I also think the Black young man who was shot dead by a White cop, was caught on surveilance camera stealing cigars and pushing around a smaller Indian store worker, not a very smart thing to do, if you know you are in a town like this in the DEEP SOUTH where the POLICE basically have a licence to KILL Blacks, etc...Never ever heard of a JESUS LOVING KILLER, sound truly DEMENTED!!

Brian, great question! If they did have any kind of California auto insurance, I am quite sure THEY WILL NOT get covered for breaking so many laws; like having way too many passengers, not using any seat belts, speeding and my guess, I hope that I am wrong but DRUGS and ALCOHOL, so many students, once they land in the USA think it is a free for all and some end up just like this, dead.

Sounds like these Hamas guys are getting a bit paranoid and just shooting ANYBODY to kind of let the rest of the Palestinians know "who is still in control??" But control of what?? They keep messing with Israel and Israel keeps blowing the heck out of everything there in that Gaza strip. These blokes sound quite suicidal but I guess if you have NO HOPE and NOTHING to lose, what the heck keep fighting with the Jews until the cows come home?? Real nice situation there.

Back in the USA I used to think Japanese were BAD drivers because they were suddenly driving on the OTHER side of the road (Japan is the same side as the UK, Australia, New Zealand, etc...) but now living here in Japan for many years, my biggest surprise is how terrible they also drive IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY! Seat belts?? Sure it is a law now in Japan too, but how many times do we see kids, babies etc..WITH NO SEAT BELTS here in Japan, and the parents smoking in the car with all of their kids, NO SEAT BELTS, kids sticking their heads and bodies OUT of the SUN ROOF etc..?? So I am not surprised by this kind of stupidity. RIP??

This guy, James Foley, got lucky ONCE in Libya, he was captured and then later released from some armed group in Libya, then he WENT BACK to the Middle East, to SYRIA of all places and tried his LUCK again but?? I know the POPE feels real sorry for him and other Christians but if you are TOO stupid to stay away from those crazy conflict zones this is what can happen. RIP???

You are right Educator, I am right but about WRONG accident. Kind of silly for these tv guys to go on about another accident back in 2010, so that got me confused, and yes it seems like a miracle that nobody died in this accident. Those trees seem to have stopped that train from falling even further, I am happy you watch and understand J tv news, too many folk on here do not.
