    If you scroll back you will find that there was only one poster who suggested the police should have held him. Everybody else was indeed acknowleding that the cops could not do more legally.

    Mandalorian;

    " My friend was held for 23 days for jumping over an izakaya signboard. He accidentally knocked it over, but there was no damage caused. However, he was still held for that period of time without any court extension or need for a lawyer. "

    Now why do I think that there is more to the story than you telling us here?

    They are reaping the blow-back of their own actions. They just had join Obama in his ill-advised support for "Arab Spring" aka Islamist power grab, and look what we got now....ISIS terror regimes in both Libya and Syria, which are happy to open the floodgates to islamic mass immigration to Europe.

    They conveniently forgot that Italy was paying Gaddafi 100 million Euros/year to keep his border closed, which he did. Now, income from the traffickers is a solid business model for ISIS.

    And the clueless Euro politicians are scratching their heads and pretend to be surprised.

    Yamada is still not talking. This is infuriating. I hope they squeeze him more.

    He got away with that simplistic scam for 5 years?

    That really speaks to how blissfully naive this country still is. I love it. Like living in Norman Rockwell picture.

    Yardley:

    " Couldn't they hold him on some charge for having those things in his possession given his criminal history? None of this makes any sense to me. "

    Apparently, they could not. I would agree the law should be amended. If a sicko like this who was already convicted TWICE for violent abductions was found with handcuffs, a stungun and a syringe in his possession, there should be a legal way to give him an extension behind bars.

    " This is the third or fourth case of a woman murdered in the last three or four weeks. This is very troubling "

    This is a country of 110 million people. In most countries this size, a single murder would not even make the national news.

    Can you imagine the press brouhaha if the races in this case had been reversed? That would the the only topic here, and we would not here the end of it.

    But in the current constellation, that is no topic. Amazing, isn´t it.

    Legally, the cops could do anything in Tokyo, since he had not committed a crime at that point. But with such glaringly obvious signs of something being planned, should they not have have asked their Osaka collegues to pay a follow-up visit to him?

    Well, I say this: At least the robber had the balls to attack an adult male, instead of going after children and women.

    It does not take Sherlock Holmes to suspect a low-life ex boyfriend. I think they will catch him soon after asking around a bit.

    and,

    Disillusioned;

    " However, if you are a woman or a child the murder statistics are compatible with other more famously violent countries. "

    Do you have a source for that? I doubt it.

    Burning Bush:

    " The "uprising" against Assad is a Western Media fiction. Assad has the support of the majority of Syrians and his staying power is the proof. "

    I don´t think it is that simple. He certainly has the support of the secular Syrians and of non-Sunni Syrians (not only the Allevites). But the majority of the Syrian population is Sunni, and among the Sunnis, the Muslim Brotherhood (which is a radical Sunni movement) has a lot of traction. Remember that the Brotherhood uprising against the secular Assad government goes back for decades. So I would not simply declare that he has the support of the majority. Demographics are not in his favour.

    However, the tale that this is a democratic uprising against an evil dictator, that is a Western Media fiction which belongs to Hollywood (and Washington). We have seen how well that tale played out in "liberated" Iraq, Tunesia, and Libya.

    The situation in Syria (like it was in Libya) is an islamist rebellion against a secular regime. And our Western governments, in their infinite wisdom, support the islamists. Go figure.

    Strangeland:

    " No one has claimed that. Scientists have pointed out that accelerated climate change is a result of human behaviours. "

    All of that are hypotheses. There thousands of factors, including many human-caused (e.g. the UN itself is on record stating that cow farts have a bigger climate effect than CO2, yet I don´t see the UN asking us to become vegetarians...). To single out CO2 and then inventing schemes like "carbon trading" is clearly a political issue.

    " Politicians and the UN can put together laws that can minimize the impact of humans on climate change. "

    Oh really now. If politicians and the UN have such power, why don´t they outlaw wars, to start with? And since when does e.g. China care about whatever the UN legislates?

    " Thinking otherwise is ridiculous, and maintaining the status quo will destroy our planet. "

    No, thinking otherwise is quite realistic, and the planet will be there long after we have destroyed ourselfes -- but not with imaginary global warming.

    Danny Bloom:

    " Climate change is real "

    Climate change is real, but has always existed. The idea that a) without human activity there would be no climate change, and b) politicians and UN can "fix" climate change with taxes money collection schemes like carbon trading is ludicrious. Fact is, we are burning fossil fuels because we need them for our modern civiliziation. If there was an viable alternative, companies would have jumped on that long ago. The idea that oil companies need to bribe people to use their product is beyond naive.

    Sure, we can do without fossil fuels (on the assumption that they are the only factor in climate change) -- if we want to live like in pre-industrial times. Of course, there would have to be a lot fewer of us, too.

    Latest news says he bought a stun gun and handcuffs the day before the murder. That would explain how he kept the kids subdued in his car while he was driving around all morning. He then switched to tape, presumable because he was clever enough to figure out that handcuffs could be traced. What a piece of work.

    I understand the Saudi kingdom accepts zero refugees. However, they are happy to continue to support ISIS as well as financing Wahabi mosques in Europe, where the flood of ISIS created refugees goes.

    Strangerland:

    " don't know. I'm not up on the details of whatever accord (or whatever) that countries sign in regards to refugees. "

    The number that Germany signed under in Brussels was 130,000. The arrrivals (up to now) are 800,000, and counting. Germany has a population of about 80 million. That means, this year alone, a population amounting to 1% of its total population has arrived and been added to its welfare roles. Do see a limit anywhere?

    Again, for Japan this would amount to 1.1 million gaijins arriving here, ditching their passports, and claiming asylum.

    Strangerland:

    " But they aren't just immigrants are they, they are refugees. " Actually, that is not so certain either. Countries mentioned in the article like Kosovo (which Nato bombed to smithereens to "liberate" it) and Albania are hardly at war, and isn´t Afghanistan to be pacified by now?

    About refugees from Syria, wow about re-directing them to any of the several dozen of islamic countries in the region, where islamic customs are observed. It is pretty mind-boggling that they all want to travel half-way around the world to the infidel countries of Europe. The welfare system has nothing to do with that, you think?

    And of course, our politicians should work to re-establish stable authoritarian regimes like Assad and Gaddafi in the region instead of supporting the islamists.
