    He declined to confirm his client's whereabouts but said the DNA samples had come from Japan.

    Seriously? They could be DNA samples from his pet dog for all they know! ....ok, well, maybe his uncle or something. I still don't understand why someone would do this if it's not linked to human trafficking.

    And yet, here we are, NINE DAYS after the killing. And still no official version of the events. Yeah, why is that?

    "St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch said a grand jury could begin hearing evidence in the case as early as Wednesday to determine whether Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson will face criminal charges." http://news.yahoo.com/ferguson-live-updates-115432700.html

    Yabits: What Kuya 808 said.

    Mr. Brown was approached by the officerwhile walking down the middle of the street with a companion, a series of events ensued that resulted in Mr. Brown being fatally shot. The exact nature of those events has yet to be clearly verified. So to state unequivocally that Mr. Brown was summarily executed by the police officer for the act of jaywalking is a logical fallacy.

    Yabits, I am not for or against the officer in question. I am waiting for the smoke to clear and the truth to come out. All I'm saying is that if the victim's family wants justice, they could do so without all of this publicity (which just ignites the mob mentality of some people). Instead, they've turned it into a drama, or a circus of distractions, which probably will end up making the truth come out later than sooner.

    They do not trust the same system that allowed this cop to kill this kid to supply them with the facts regarding this matter.

    So they are going to trust a lawyer and the media who will jump at anything little chance for a story? I can understand that they don't trust the local police force, but that's why the FBI is involved.... but they are still investigating.

    Until all the facts are in the officer should be a suspect. That's right, a suspect. As a suspect, being considered legally innocent does not mean that charges can't be filed against him. The sooner, the better.

    That would be true if this were considered to be a homocide case. But right now, amidst all this chaos and buzz created by people who weren't even at the scene, which only adds to the confusion, that is the first thing the FBI needs to figure out; whether this was a homocide, or an officer acting in the line of duty.

    Helmets on cyclists can prevent this result!

    Helmets will only prevent the skull from cracking open. The brains inside the skull are like Big Pucchi pudding (sorry for the weird allusion). A helmet will only help in low velocity crashes, and if there is enough velocity, the pudding inside the container will end up being mush.

    And yes, helmets must be worn by law.

    And yes, helmets should be worn by common sense. At any rate, most motor bikes are only meant to carry 2 people, so we know that at least one of these boneheads didn't have a helmet (since no one carries 3 helmets)... not that a helmet would have helped in this situation anyway.

    Everything is so premature. I don't understand why anyone (especially the rioters in Ferguson, and even the posters here) could draw so many conclusions based on so little knowledge of what happened. That's what sucks about this whole thing. And do you know who is driving this whole "Guilty until proven innocent" notion? ....that's right; the victim's family, their lawyer, and the media.

    Has anybody seen this movie "Eternal Zero"? I'm curious to know how it portrays the Imperialist J-Government.

    @Jerseyboy: I can't help but think that you're treading on thin ice here. In one post you say this:

    Ossan -- nonsense. Both are acts of terrorism by desperate forces driven by a fanatical belief in a faith-based ideology.

    ...and then in another you say this:

    Terror has long been a part of war, and will continue to be, as it is a valid and effective strategy...

    Other than the fact that you're contradicting yourself, the "definition" of terrorism is beside the point; I believe the point that Ossan was making is that Kamikaze pilots are not the same as "people" who blow up civillians in a public location, or hijack a commercial flight and fly it into a non-military structure full of civillians. Camman80 on the other hand, stated they are the same.

    It's definitely the atmosphere that makes festival food taste good. Kind of like when you're camping; coffee, bacon and eggs just seem to taste better when you're camping.

    As she was a child at the time, I can't understand why there wasn't a nationwide manhunt for her, especially considering that she was gone for two years

    @Tessa: Again, I don't understand why you keep assuming that nothing was done at the time of her disappearance. Maybe 2 years ago, they did have a 'manhunt', but police will give up on a 'manhunt' after a short time and turn the case into an investigation for obvious reasons such as lack of resources. Do you have a reference to some source that says nothing was done at the time of her disappearance?

    @Tessa: How do you know nobody "followed up on it"? How do you know what transpired for the last 2 years? What would you have her say then? "I don't care about my daughter, I could act like I care but I don't"? If a child has been missing for 2 years, I think some parents may partially be preparing themselves for the worse, even while looking for them. Thus, she is shocked but all the while ready for closure now that the body has been discovered.

    It is our understanding at this point in the investigation, that within the police car, there was a struggle over the officer's weapon...

    I wonder how an officer can let someone even get close to his/her weapon within the police car. Within the car, a suspect and the officer should not be sitting in the same space. Therefore, this statement is a little suspicious to me.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again: The FIRST thing Japan needs to do is enforce equal pay. No more "OL's", no more women doing the same job in a factory for less pay. Otherwise, there's simply no motivation for women to work. For example, why work when you pay more for daycare then you earn? On the other side of the coin, the "deeply entrenched sexism" and social aspects of inequality of the sexes won't change overnight.

    Kids the world over, have been inundated with images and videos of wanton violence, sex, murder, gore, all easily accessible on smart phones and laptops.

    @Oldman: I think what you're saying is half true. I don't think the content itself has much to do with kids these days "losing touch", as much as the sheer quantity of distractions available to kids (and adults for that matter). IMHO, children's minds should develop into adulthood based on communicating with other people, not communicating with people through machines or communicating with machines. I can say for myself that kicking a soccer ball around or playing catch or road hockey (where I am from) probably was immensely more constructive for my own development as a kid than playing video games.

    The media have pushed these things onto society, and kids by default have easy access to it.

    True, so the only thing that adults can do is limit the access. But we all know hard difficult that is...

    Acts of aggression BY THE JAPANESE GOVERNMENT should be acknowledged in the text books, not a memorial for the innocent.

    The deception, which amounted to nearly 10% of all crimes in the area during that period, meant that Tokyo appeared to have the worst national crime figures.

    And after Tokyo police admits they too have been covering up crimes, they will once again have the worst crime rates in Japan! ....just joking, but it wouldn't surprise me...

    In my experience I've only been to a few countries: Japan, Canada, US, Brazil, Mexico, Thailand, Indonesia, and Saudi Arabia. Of those, Japan seems the safest to me, but not 100% safe by any stretch.

    Every country has "Bad apples" and also bad neighborhoods, but in Japan, the general population IMO is less inclined to harm or steal from another person. For example, my home country of Canada is relatively safe, but I've had a bike stolen as a kid, a car stolen and another one broken into, vandalism is pretty common, and street/bar fights break out all the time; and this is in a relatively small city. A lot of these crimes are committed by "average people" in Canada who are not related to any gangs or mafia, and otherwise lead "normal" lives, which is scary to me.
