Lots of nude in Japanese newspapers and magazines. What is the big deal?

I totally disagree. It has been said over and over again by every PM and sometimes more than once by the same PM.
It is 2015 is it not? How much more should this generation pay for the stupidity of their great, great grandparents bushido life style?

In my town, the young koban cop stands on the corner where there is a stop sign. While cars blatantly ignore the stop sign totally, he stops high school girls on bikes and harasses them. So sad.
Stop signs are art work. They mean nothing.
If they plan on stopping people with umbrellas, there will be some huge lines of people waiting for tickets. When it rains, what do they expect.
I do not plan on sitting on my bike at a red light in a useless place for a long period of time when there are no cars coming. What a waste.

Toilets here are great. They have doors and doors that go to the floor. They have toilet paper. The handicap toilets can be small apartments. They just need a fridge and denshi range and would be all set.

As a Jew I feel no hate here at all. Nothing. Most people do not know any Jews and do not know they exist.
Hate against Koreans should be stopped unless they are send money to the North.

They might want to take a pole like this but base it on education.
Those with Graduate degrees or higher.
Those with college degrees.
Those with some college.
Those with a HS degree.
Those with less than a HS degree.
I be there would be some interesting stats on that one.

By the way, that picture of a scene from Birdman above was the last scene. That is why it does not resolve itself.

If it was America I would vehemently say innocent until proven guilty...but this is Japan. Maybe he can become the Crying Copper and slam his fists down a few times on the Koban Desk.

Just as Jews are not a race, neither are Muslims. Both are religions with various sects.
Stopping immigrants who are percieved as muslims will do nothing. There is a large enough population of them in Europe now to build their own populations up, as they have many more babies than the old Europians.
So many bad attitudes out there. The passive Muslims need to get to work s¥to show that they are family people just like 99.9999% of most humans.

Missing: Looks like a register receipt roll. The plastic bag may be due to blood splatter for the operation on his hand.
I am more concerned with the hat and the metal probe.
He is an Orthodox boy though. Do you know how to tell? It is quite easy.

Posted in: The conformist aspects of Japanese society makes events like the hostage crisis particularly emotionally disturbing for its people. That trauma is compounded by the fact that I don't think most Japanese saw this coming. Many will realize out of this that they too are a part of global society, rather than an isolated island nation.
