the foul ball to her eye was not intentional, so don't understand how the lady could have won the lawsuit. sounds like the usual archaic japanese law at work.

He should have just rolled off the edge of the rock barricade he was sitting on at the Golden Gate bridge. And I don't see how an airline could allow the cockpit to be manned by one pilot at any one time, even for just a bathroom break especially as we have come to understand that the pilot in the cockpit can override any attempted entry into the cockpit.

This guy will be in a for a sweet surprise. I hope he is reading these comments as he has another thing coming. These antics may have worked 20 years ago, but most Japanese girls will not allow even a white male to do such things. And by the sounds of it, he has managed to gather quite a few enemies now banding together to take this guy down hard.

survival of the fittest hey? How cruel. I don't see how a state can ban people from handing out food. But handing out money to them is okay?

Company should take responsibility. He could have quit, but was possibly scared to quit and forced by his employers. And mentally he was unstable and unable to make a rational desicion.

Wow, sounds like something out of an American movie drama!! I hope for the best that they find the students, but have doubts they might not find them... Greed and corruption has led to their downfall, how story book can you get.

Chang has corrected his unneccesary jumping movement, and only on occasion will he do the Air Kei that he is famous for. He is very thin and think building more muscle will help him and with age, he will naturally get stronger. I am confident he will take a grand slam in 2015.

They are selling their retail banking services, but will continue to provide the normal services as they have been up until now. So as it stands now, you don't have to necessarily get your money out and look for another bank to put in. My guess is a megabank will buy them out and will keep the same branches and outlets as is and just change names.

wow, he really must be messed up in the head to actually force the crew to screw off the hinges of the door. Was he continually trying to assault the poor woman during the whole time they were getting off the door? Hope she is not too scarred by this incident. They should fully press charges against this man, if he was that much danger to the public because of mental health conditions, he shouldn't have been walking around without proper supervision. Wonder if he was on other drugs than prescription.

All I can say, the inkeeper had alot of guts to do that and would have had second thoughts of doing that. I have seen and had a fried taunt one of these bosuzoku groups, and they came after him with a veangance smashing the back of his car window chasing him all the way to the police station where they gave up pursuit. He should have just called the police to complain of noise disturbance and keep calling them every time it happens. Not worth putting your life on the line for something out of your league.

the other patrons should have stood together to face this maniac. They should have tried to stop him. If i were the owner, I would have simply taken my butcher knife up to him and told him to stop right now or I will whack your arm off, now which is it?

Goto abused his rank and now time for him to pay. This boy needs a little taste of his own medicine. He should be arrested for assault and abuse.

Dang, he must have had some serious hate to go as far as he did. Sad it ended this way and really wonder how far his mother really pushed him. But I do know how boys do not like to be told what to do by their mothers and have witnessed knives being drawn to threaten. The mother no longer tells him what to do.
