    Well I suppose that attendance numbers shouldn't go down because the people are there to see cars and not models, but with that said... what a boring show that would be! (Sorry for being a guy)

    What a useless idea. Is this Mitsukoshi's answer to the dwindling population? I hope not.

    If this isn't the epitome of the passive-agressive side of the Japanese culture, I don't know what is. I get that they don't want to draw too much attention to themselves, but an X on the perps hands? How passive can you get?! All the guy has to do is put his hands in his pockets and voila! At least put it on the guy's forehead or something.... that'll be more of a deterrent.

    Disrespectful? Yes.

    Typical self-centered behaviour for a bunch of teenagers? Yes.

    Worthy of punishment? ...not ususally, but since they are actors that other kids look up to and were in Japan on business, I think punishment issued by their employers is completely reasonable.

    Don't understand why a model has fans.

    "Yeah, I'm a fan of the way she walks"....

    To each his own I guess.

    What a psycho. Someone should have given this a guy a PS4 and a copy of GTA for when he's feeling 'stressed out'. Glad no one was seriously injured.

    I see tons of Americans who still bash Japan for Pearl Harbor, and they are apparently still harboring negative feelings towards it also because of strong Japanese economic competition during the 80s...

    ...I doubt this poll is a mirror of reality

    That doesn't mean the poll is inaccurate because "A total of 61% of Americans say either Japan has apologised sufficiently for the war or no apology is now necessary"....that means that up to 39% or 390 people out of a thousand believe Japan still owes an apology (or some may have no opinion?). I would say 390 people is still a lot of people.

    One viewing of the video of the shooting and any doubts one might have regarding this police officer's presumed innocence will be immediately dispelled.

    Saw the video.... agreed. There was absolutely no visible threat to the officer whatsoever. Cold-blooded murder.

    With that said, can I just ask out of curiosity, does anybody know why Scott was running away? I know it doesn't change anything, but just curious.

    Enjoy life in prison cop scum.

    ....really? Is being a cop that bad of a thing? I don't think this incident makes all cops "scum". You better hope you never need the assistance of a cop in your life.

    Someone who does not look like and duck and walk like a duck is not a duck.

    I can't tell you how different species of ducks there are, but if you check wiki or something, you'll surely find that there are countless. And they all look different, and live prominently in different parts of the world, yet, they are considered ducks??? go figure!

    I hope you can look at someone like Ariana Miyamoto in the eye and tell her that she is not Japanese because she doesn't "look" Japanese.

    And I hope that someday you will realize that humans are capable of judging something or someone for more than visual appearance alone.

    Police believe Kitamura was responsible for all four attacks. The surveillance camera footage of the first attack released by police shows a man resembling Kitamura walking up behind the victim.

    I don't know guys, the article says that cameras only caught him walking behind the victim, and only in one of the attacks. Don't they have footage of him doing the act? Don't they have footage of him in the other attacks? If they have footage which shows he was close to another victim in at least two separate attacks, that would be much more conclusive, but if the only footage of him is walking behind a victim in one of the attacks, that does not sound like enough evidence to me... unless the police have something else they're not saying, or the reporting sucks. Sorry for the armchair detective analysis.

    "little green men" - a silly attempt at humour?

    That's what I thought too. I question Inoki's judgement to bring up such a topic so publicly (time and a place...), but I also question the proffessionalism of whoever wrote this article, as the term "little green men" was surely added by the writer. Is this an editorial?

    Smith: In America: "...many states and local governments have very specific anti-discrimination laws that also contain provisions that prohibit harassment for what are sometimes very unique classes of individuals."

    Educator: I agree. In North America, we usually refer to "sexual harrassment" or "verbal harrassment". Not much different from Japan.

    With that said, even though this is a step in the right direction, I must agree with many posters regarding the enforcement of this new law. Attitudes will not change unless laws are made and enforced; and even then things will not change overnight, it will take many many years for most companies/people to change their views regarding harrassment. Just like drinking and driving, or wearing seatbelts (although people still do these things, I think it's safe to say that the general public is much better now about obeying these laws compared to 20 years ago).
