Sharia law is expanding all over it seems. Death penalty in this case very much unjustified. He didn't wake up that morning planning all of this. Yes, he was negligent but he didn't plan on doing this. No death penalty.

I think they may be Kamakazi pilots reincarnated. Saw a species of them here in Okinawa.

Sexualization of women. It just never stops. Is this really worth coming up with? I wouldn't mind it saying "Prettiest woman" or "Cutest woman" but does it have to say "Sexiest"? Not appropriate.

I'd give them a warning and let them resume their duties. It's not like anyone's life was in danger. But if they did it a second time, I would have to show them the door.

One boy dead, one family devastated, and the life of a driver ruined. He should not be charged in my opinion.

He needs help but should also be billed for the services the police provided. The police could have likely been used somewhere else for someone who really needs help such as a rescue situation or someone who is being harmed by someone else. Help for him is in order here.

You should always stop for pedestrians, if the person behind you does not stop and rear-ends you, the cause of the accident is 100% the person that hit you from behind and you will share 0%, it happened to me. Here in Okinawa it is really bad. 99.999% of drivers DO NOT stop for pedestrians. Happened to me just yesterday. Stay safe peeps!

This does not necessarily have to be the fault of the driver. There needs to be a full investigation as to what happened. Jaywalking a possibility but then she could not see, right? Sad no matter what the outcome.

Doesn't a good iPhone case solve these problems. I have a nice case for my Samsung Galaxy Note II but the problem is that it makes the phone much thicker. Boy, do we have problems!

I have the Samsung Galaxy Note II and in general it's good, but just way too big. The stylus that it comes with scratches every screen protector I've tried. So you wind up with fine scratch marks all over your screen protector which distorts the beautiful screen quality. I don't even use it anymore, I use a generic stylus with a spongy surface. Next purchase will be an Apple.

I understand the school also cancelled their annual Sports Day (Undoukai) which is a blow to the entire school. All that hard work those kids put in to put on a show for their family. The whole school must be mourning in addition to the parents and family of the little one. Oh dear. Sad days. Rest in heavenly peace, child.

Fowle who left a bible in his hotel room was arrested only for that. Shame on North Korea. He should be immediately released! As for the dummy who ripped up his visa, well...he should be handed the Darwin Award for that act. Not too smart if you ask me. Now the swimmer. Where do they find these people? Excluding Mr. Fowle. He did nothing wrong, me thinks.
