    This sounds as if people are just ignorant to how downloadable music works.

    “If you buy it through a download, there’s no jacket insert.”

    Because there is no physical media that it needs to come in. That's a good thing. Physical media tends to break scratch, skip, and become unusable over time, unless you baby it to death. If you need a picture or lyrics, then download it!

    “I feel that in Japan today, instead of ‘buying music’ we want to ‘buy fan goods’.”

    Go and buy the goods then...what has this got to do with CDs vs downloadable music??

    “Buying a download could disappear, so I don’t want it. I want it on a CD.”

    If it "disappears", then download it again! If you own rights to the music, you can download it again if you need it. Whereas if you scratch CD, you do have to buy it again...bad logic

    It seems that Japanese music lovers just like to collect things, so having a shelf full of CDs satisfies their hoarding needs.

    Typical Japanese hoarding mentality. Keeping and collecting things like a pack rat, until their apartments/houses as so full with junk, its practically unlivable.

    Uchida was quoted by police as saying he didn’t lay a hand on anyone.

    Of course...he was drunk so how could possibly remember?

    definition of circumstantial evidence:

    Circumstantial evidence is evidence that relies on an inference to connect it to a conclusion of fact—like a fingerprint at the scene of a crime. By contrast, direct evidence supports the truth of an assertion directly—i.e., without need for any additional evidence or inference.

    Everyone here knows that I'm normally the most liberal and concerned about abuses of police power, but in this case there is more than enough evidence to secure a conviction.

    Video footage places him near the girl before the murder.

    The cigarette butts (with his DNA on them) and ID card in the bags place him at the scene when the girl was being dismembered and put into the bags.

    The backpack places her in her apartment in the interim.

    I explained this earlier but the over zealous JT mod deleted my comment :-(

    I say that its all circumstantial because none of the evidence collected is a proverbial smoking gun. Video shows the guy walking behind the girl. Although this seems like damning evidence, although creepy, its not illegal to follow a child.

    The backpack in his apartment.. yes it looks like a smoking gun, it isn't. He could have found the backpack and took it home, or the girl could have even been in his apartment at some point, but it doesn't mean that he murdered her.

    Cigarette butts with his DNA, again not concrete evidence.

    all of this evidence together though, does draw a picture and incriminates him even more, however, the nail in the coffin is going to be the murder weapon, or as I said earlier, something with her DNA on it that puts him at the scence of the crime...Until then, its all nothing but pieces of a puzzle and not the whole picture

    The evidence found are all circumstantial...not enough to convict for murder. They'll need to either find the murder weapon, or the girl's DNA somewhere on him, or his DNA somewhere on her to call it an open and shut case

    Her back pack has been found in his apartment.

    Means nothing. Its still circumstantial. He could have found the backpack and took it back to his apartment. The girl could have even been in his apartment and took off her backpack there, but this still doesn't mean he killed her.

    The only real conclusive evidence is to find the murder weapon, and to link it Kimino (fingerprint or DNA), or find her blood somewhere on one of his belongings. aside from that, everything found is all circumstantial and a good lawyer would be able shoot all of them down in court. The police have to be extremely careful and find that one damning evidence that proves without a shadow of a doubt that he did it, otherwise he could be set free by the court for lack of evidence..

    The evidence found near the girl's body are all circumstantial and does not prove without a shadow of doubt that he committed the murder, hence he hasn't been charged yet (as of 10:34PM of Sept 26th). And unless the murder weapon is found, and there is conclusive evidence that points to this guy, there is an ever so slight chance that he didn't do it.

    Having said the above, other media outlets report that this guy has been seen drunk in public at the nearby shopping arcade in the past, and acting extremely erratic and violent. When he is sober, he extremely quiet and docile, like a completely different person. He could be a regular Jekyl and Hyde, and honestly doesn't remember the actions he committed while drunk. Of course, this is no excuse for brutally murdering this poor little girl, he needs to be hung.

    I never understand multiple lifetime sentences, how does that work?

    Multiple life sentences is just insurance so that he NEVER gets out. Its just a procedural thing to make sure that he doesn't get paroled after serving 30-40 years, or by some strange loophole in the law, one of the life sentences gets nulled and he gets released sometime later.

    I said that this tragedy could have been prevented.

    ^This means that you are blaming the parents. Because her parents did take a particular action, she is dead.

    I am saying, the parents didn't need to take that action, and she died because there was a murderous lunatic on the loose

    I stated the fact that if she would have been properly supervised, it would never had happened.

    In other words, she is dead because her parents didn't supervise her properly? In essence, you are saying that her parents are at least partially responsible... but they simply are not....not even in the slightest; nor did they raise her incorrectly. Again the only person in the wrong, the only person who is responsible for the girl's death, the only person who should be rightfully villainized and blamed for ANT wrong doing is the murderer...not the girl (even though she didn't tell anyone where she was going), not the parents (for not "supervising" her more carefully), nor the grandparents.....JUST the murderer.

    IF she had asked permission before she went out, I doubt the outcome would be any different. That man would have still been waiting for her. Perhaps if her parents were with her every second of every single day as you suggest, this may or may not have happened, but how realistic is that for the parent or the child. The child needs to grow up.

    @YodaJediMaster

    Where do you draw the line then. At what age would you allow your kids to go out and play with their friends without you hovering around like a helicopter parent? Age 8? Age 10? Age 12? Of course each kid is different and mature differently, but you can't always be attached at the hip all the time. One of my daughter's friends has a parent that ALWAYS hangs around, and the other kids don't really like playing with her because of this. Kids need a certain degree of independence, otherwise they never grow up.

    I agree, that you have to be more cautious than you did 20 years ago, but having said this, child abductions and killings have ALWAYS existed, even when we were kids. The only thing that has really changed is in the age of the internet, when we get to hear about every single killing and abduction that happens, whereas in the past we only heard about the high profile cases, and it didn't seem like so many.

    Again, the child did nothing wrong (IMO) other than not reporting in (which is really my household rule, and evidence suggests that it was this girl's household rule too)... Yes, she may have deserved a scolding for not telling her parents where she was going, but definitely didn't deserve to be killed. There was absolutely nothing wrong with her going to a friend's house or going outside after school. She should be able to do this; that's a part of being a child. Suggesting that she got herself killed because she did this, is wrong. The person who was really in the wrong and the REAL problem is the person who abducted and killed her...NO ONE ELSE.

    @YodaJediMaster

    Though horrible, this was totally preventable if, as a 6 year old should, was properly supervised by her parent, grandparent etc

    6 year olds are not babies, and you cannot supervise them 24/7. You can't follow kids around everywhere they go, because at this age, they are trying to explorer their independence, and hovering around them all of the time will cause relationship issues with the child their friends.

    With my 6 year old, we just make sure that she checks in at home before going to a friend's house or going out to play. We also tell her NEVER to play alone, and standard "never talk to or take gift from strangers", and "as soon as her friends go home, she needs to come home" speech. So in that respect, the parents nor did the girl did anything wrong. Can't blame them.

    @West coaster

    Will this guy be hung? In Australia they just get locked up.

    Usually hanging is reserved for serial or mass murderers, or the most hideous of crimes. You'd think that kidnapping a child, killing them, and then dismembering their body (god, I only hope she was dead before he began dismembering her),is enough to get the death sentence, but often times, they just get a few years. Domestic crimes (as in crimes committed on family members) usually gets less time because the twisted Japanese justice system thinks that's enough.

    @bass4funk

    So true. When I was 6 years old, I remember I used to play outside with the other neighborhood kids (some older; some younger) until it was dark outside. During the summer, that would be like until 8:30 - 9:00pm. Nowadays, its absolutely unthinkable. My daughter's curfew is 6pm, and now we are having to rethink that because of the shorter days.

    The world is full of lunatics who prey on the innocent, and its just unacceptable. Laws need to be stricter and they need to be binding. Japan is so screwed up in this respect. Too much compassion for the perpetrator, and not enough justice for the victim. If its domestic violence/ crime, its almost certain that the perpetrator will not serve more than 5 years for murder which is absurd.
