"Akiyama was quoted by police as saying, “She was cute and I wanted to get to know her better.”

So now the J-cops are going to spend countless man hours that could be put to better use,trying to figure out how someone got into the country?!
Does it really make a difference at this point?
And if this guy got in there is no telling WHO else might have gotten in!!!!!

It was a triple murder cum** attempted robbery that shocked a nation that was already reeling from the crime spree by a doomsday religious cult, coming just four months after the cult’s deadly nerve gas attack on the Tokyo subway system.
Did I read this correctly or do I just have a filthy mind?

Yukawa went there to fight Isis,practiced firing an AK-47,was in an alleged love relationship with a Syrian rebel,no one forced him to go to Syria,he got what he had coming to him.
As for Kenji Goto,he should have known the dangers of being in that part of the world,Islamic radicals/Jihadists/extremists or whatever the PC term is,do not care if you are a journalist,reporter,freedom fighter or not,if they can use you to make an example or further their cause they will.
If they have to sever 100 heads to get their point across it does not matter who the head belongs to,these guys are not conventional or modern age war fighters they use any means to relay their message,and Japan should really think before they take any action that might further put their people in danger.
Last thing we need is Isis in Japan,we have enough nutjobs and psychos!

Maybe if Dubya and his Daddy never set foot in Iraq in the first place we would not be in this quagmire,maybe all those troops would also never have been put in harms way.
And even if the troops were pulled out it would not make much of a difference,it would still be a free for all since these people have been waging holy wars for centuries.

I was in a union before,so I understand how they work,I also know that you have to pay Union dues whether you are working or not.
Now with what most of these workers make and the benefits they get the least they could be is satisfied,but the UNION fighting for the workers simply means the more the workers make the more the UNION stands to make in the long run.

It is a stoppage since the workers walked off the job,stuff that is shipped overseas may have to be air lifted from other places,pretty sure that consumers outside the US are having to face reduced supplies of merchandise.
What gets me is most of the port workers make 6 figures.
Maybe the Union reps just want more.

XP was,is and always will be the BEST windows based program ever! Hey Microsoft here is an Idea!
Why not ask or listen to YOUR customers?!
Why not revamp XP and call it XP plus? Why not just keep a good thing going?
I am not a fan of Apple so I stick with Microsoft,have windows 8 or should I say windows HATE! it sucks,then I heard about 8.1,glad I did not upgrade even worse than 8,why on earth is it so hard to come up with an OS that actually makes people happy? Everything after XP is utter crap!

I have read stories on this very site where Jcops have been caught filming up women's skirts among other things,many of them are just as bad as the Pervs if not worse,wonder how many of those cameras will actually be "disposed of".

Yeah,no thanks I will stick with my Galapagos flip phone,If I want to call someone I use it If I want to surf the web I use my Latop.
Seems like Apple has some people in a daze,every couple of moths they make improvements to what seems to be the same product but makes people break their piggy banks and for lines for days just to have it.
Maybe I will change my mind when the Iphone 30 comes out.
