Works in Singapore. There jaywalking is illegal and enforced.

I wouldn't even touch it. I would take a picture of it and report it to law enforcement.

I teach in Okinawa. Every school here is at risk. Where are we going to move them?

I doubt they will remember much. Hope the survivors recover.

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!

Didn't see that one coming. Countless lives destroyed at every level. So sad. My prayers for everyone.
Tom DeMickeOct. 01, 2014 - 05:16PM JST
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.
