    So, governments don't pay attention to the complaints of their own citizens and come to decisions based upon the needs of the many vs the wants of the few. Sounds strikingly familiar.

    hey're concerned about Safety and in Japan most crimes are committed by Japanese.

    THey are only concerned about safety because media told them to. If the media tells them that it's safe they will believe that too. I recently sold some beach front property to one as well. Interested?

    But the people here supporting Air BnB have not addressed the very real concerns of neighbors, who have every right to expect some standards of safety, security, cleanliness and privacy in their neighborhood.

    Geez, what about the Kumon, Sorobon, Shuji, Karate, Judo, Boxing, or any other type of small business that opens in the neighborhood? No one says crap, and there are probably hundreds of MORE people going to those places than a few tourists staying for a short time.

    People are afraid of the foreigners, as the concept for Japanese is not something they are accustomed to and they are just being xenophobic and some maybe racist.

    What it didn’t point out is that the rest of Okinawa’s populace has a crime rate much higher than the U.S. servicemen over the the few decades. It is important to note that the overwhelming majority of American service members, dependents and civilian employees are law abiding, honorable and respectful.

    It won't either, as the media works very hard at trying to keep the two communities apart from one another. BUT it will take both, working together, to find solutions and make things better.

    Details are obviously sketchy but it's also possible that this man might have been the victim of some pranksters/criminals who thought it would be funny to steal clothes from drunk people. If I woke up naked on the street, a taxi would be a logical place to seek refuge.

    Details sketchy? Reread the article please.

    When the driver looked back and saw that the man was naked, he stopped the taxi and asked him to get out. Police said the man became violent and pounded the acrylic panel between the passenger seat and the driver’s seat, breaking it.

    If he was as you try to allude to here a victim, odds are pretty damn high he wouldnt be breaking an acrylic panel with his bare hands. Also if he was a victim, don't you think he would have said so and not go off his rocker?

    I actually agree with this. The manner with which some players of the game (sorry, lack of manners) show, proves that some places should be off limits.

    It's simply democracy and the rule of law.

    Ah but here is the fault in your logic. If you believe in democracy then by all rights I should be able to use my property as I see fit. How is ArBnb any different than a parent having their child pay room and board? If I want to allow people to come and stay at my home and charge them a small fee, to assist with covering the added expenses, electric, water, etc etc, I should by all rights, under a democracy, to do so.

    I wonder when the folks in China who make these statements are going to get treatment for their Pot-kettle-black syndrome?

    which found his act was a form of voyeurism.

    In other languages this would be paparazzi, but I find it hypocritical that this women, even though she deserves the money, is a special case because of her popularity and fame. If it was some unknown woman odds are pretty damn high that there would not have been a judgement in her favor.

    Yes I know it's BECAUSE she is a celebrity, but the law SHOULD favor none. (What did I just say...this IS Japan, sorry)

    “Involuntary commitment is done forcefully by the authorities…If the time period drags on longer than necessary, it becomes a serious violation of human rights,” Asahi newspaper said in an editorial on Tuesday.

    You are only concerned because the "rights" of a Japanese person might get stepped on. They hypocrisy of the statement here is laughable!

    The safety of the public should be first and in this case the dude IS a sicko and should have been locked up. The ward office also should be taking more heat for this as after he was released they failed to notify the city office in the location of where this guy lived. His address was not in their jurisdiction so they just let it go.

    He was supposed to be under supervised observation after released, they failed all those unfortunate victims and more importantly they failed in the jobs to protect the public. Time to fall on their swords, or at least be given a cell next to the guy.

    Police said the man, who was charged with destruction of property, was drunk when he was apprehended and quoted him as saying he doesn’t remember anything about the incident.

    Now where have I heard this excuse before?

    Don't you mean 柔道? The Japanese broadcasters along with the Judo Association of Japan like to talk about how the Japanese "judoka" 柔道家 practice the traditional form of the sport and HOW one wins a match is more important than just winning.

    They often openly criticize the techniques used by foreign athletes saying that they are just on the mat to win. They have even gotten to the point of attempting to force the international federation that oversees Judo in the Olympics and other international competitions to change rules regarding what techniques are allowable in a match, to give the Japanese wrestlers a better chance at winning.

    I praise the foreign wrestlers for mastering the sport and elevating their skills to the level of Olympic and World champions, and I also believe that the Japanese Judo Association needs to wake up and smell the coffee. The world has caught up with and passed Japan, just like it did in volleyball and other sports as well.

    We live in the 21st century not back in Edo.

    And in an much worse case a Kadena based civilian gets a slap on the back of his hand for having meth!

    http://okinawa.stripes.com/news/kadena-civilian-gets-suspended-sentence-meth-case

    Milton Richmond King II, 51, was sentenced to three years in prison Monday by a three-judge Naha District Court panel but will avoid jail time if he stays out of trouble for five years.

    In its decision, the panel cited King’s previously pristine record, confession and remorse.

    The judges said they wanted to give King the opportunity to seek rehabilitation in the community. He will likely not face mandatory deportation because he has family ties to the area and will not be subject to drug testing.

    Where is the outrage? "Pristine record?" Dude is doing meth, and odds are that it wasn't a one time thing. Scratching head on this one.....they bash the hell out of a drunk driver, but let a druggie walk pretty much free.

    America First!! That's right, Mm-Hmm-

    Meaning what? America, like it or not, needs to be taken down more than a few pegs. The arrogance of Trump and the untrustworthy nature of Queen Hillary make this election one that Japan should sit out.

    In modern times, Aum Shin Rikyo et all have all been Japanese. Akihabara knife rampage:Japanese. This is overkill by the Tokyo government.

    You have a short memory of Japanese history here, even for modern times. These folks made AUM seem like children.

    They were true home grown terrorists, in the true sense of the word. AUM was a cult, and based their actions upon the cults way of thinking. Both terrorized the country and others but in the traditional sense of the word, the JRA were Japan's "true" terror group.

    Terrorism and mass killings in Japan have only ever been committed by the Japanese themselves. Fact.

    Depends totally upon one's point of view, as I know a few posters here who will disagree with you here.

    There is some serious blame to be passed around here and those people in that facility should still be alive.

    The doctors that treated and released him, the ward office for not notifying the ward next door because the guy left the hospital and his address was in another ward and they had not responsibility to notify them. There is more, and as the story comes out some people's heads should roll, along with his.

    t always surprises me when I see windows with bars on them in Japan.... heck just about every house has a wall and a gate to close their car in the driveway. For a country which is safer than most, again, I'm surprised at the security measures already in place.

    The bars on the windows are mainly to protect from flying debris from the typhoons that often hit the islands. Security is secondary. The houses have walls for privacy, and in some places it is illegal to build walls now, and the height is limited by code, to under 50 centimeters, in some places. Older homes have the concrete block walls, newer ones typically do not.
