    You can get life insurance in Japan that pays out for suicide , if he had that , then his family would be compensated financially and their reason for suing would be to aportion the blame. Yes the company have a duty of care to their employees , but if you are a family man you have a duty of care to your family as well.

    Legalize it for sure, but it would have to be highly ( pardon the pun ) regulated and for those who continually say it isn't harmful, there are direct links between heavy use of Hydro to Schizophrenia , Not with all users , but then not all heavy drinkers become alcoholics, not all marijuana smokers end up doing hard drugs and wrecking their lives , It needs to be regulated for the same reason we have regulations in and on anything , to keep the bad apples from abusing it. Both the users and the suppliers.

    People found guilty of animal cruelty in Queensland face a possible $110,000 fine or two years' jail

    Having laws against animal cruelty is only part of it, the courts must also sentence, this year a couple of teenage boys killed a couple of alpacas that were pets at a local school in Australia, they were caught arrested and charged and let off yet again by the pathetic court system we have come to disdain.

    This problem isn't particular only to Japan, it happens in countries all over the world, this poor child had the misfortune to be born to that father.

    The law is not that old, and has been enforced from time to time over the years, usually when a club has too many other problems, fights , underage , drugs and noise complaints. Bar Isn't its? were around in the 90s and they were named that way to confuse the issue , they also checked IDs at the doors to keep out under 20 year olds even though the law allows 18+ into bars, But they need to be 20 to drink. If you get a licence to dance you must close at mid-night , the same law is applicable to Pachinko and soaplands ( even though soaps are supposed to be illegal ) and was introduced to stop promiscuity amongst the young, After reading the other article about the youn g no longer having sex, maybe they need to allow dancing after Mid night .

    On the contrary 300 people surveyed is enough to form a conclusion, the problem is its an online survey which means that people who are interested in taking the survey probably wanted to talk about their experiences , which will be why all the people surveyed had an experience, I wouldn't have thought you would have needed a survey to know there were a wide range of young lovers in Japan.

    There are a couple of feathers Julia can put in her cap, One obviously being the first female prime minister of Australia, the other was making Rudd look good, when truth be told she may go down as being one of the worst prime ministers Australia has ever had, and Rudd's failed policies had taken opinion polls of him to record lows until she took over. The labour party have dissolved into something akin to a rabble, even now, with Guillard and her cronies sitting in the back bench giving Rudd death stares. They lie blatantly to the Australian people and the Australian working class, their union boss supporters get caught time and time again cheating their members of their money and they talk about honour and a gentler , kinder politics.

    Rudd has been allowed to regain power until the election and once he loses dismally , the faceless power brokers will instill another labour minister whom they believe will actually be able to lead. All the while the working class who put their faith in them will have their taxes raised under the cloak of some well needed levy.

    Unless they have changed the laws, it was never illegal in Japan to threaten to kill someone, It strangely enough was not considered intimidation.

    weapon of mass destruction oh please! They are in effect very small IED's

    We differ greatly on definition, as no doubt do the relatives and friends of the deceased and injured, 3 dead and 200 injured is Mass destruction as far as I am concerned. I am happy that I am not American as i would hate for my tax dollars to be used to defend this animal, then feed , clothe and take care of him for life. Enough of the bleeding hearts , I do not want to kill any infidels that have a different religion as me, and ask the same in return.

    It is a domestic political issue as far as Australia is concerned and nothing more, the current labour party are in a minority government and therefore controlled by the Greens. Australia itself whaled commercially until the 70's and gave up for the simple reason that a synthetic alternative was found to the oil they needed, yes that's right they didn't whale for food. Although I don't want to eat whale, I don't think that Japan or any of the other Countries that still whale should be stopped if it is sustainable whaling.

    I guess if you go to an Izakaya and bar and they allow smoking you can always not go there again and go to ones that don't allow smoking. Tolerance works both ways.

    Same sex Marriage for lack of a wordof its own is I believe acceptable, however I am undecided on where I stand regarding the adoption of children, I note with interest the points above about divorced parents. However in some cases Husband and wife could divorce due to the fact the one of them was indeed Gay and if he or she had custody of the children, then they could very well end up with two mothers or two fathers looking after them.

    I also don't think its wrong for people on this forum not to agree with same sex marriage or even just the word, they are entitled to their opinion, I am cynical enough to believe that Ellen would not be anywhere near as popular if she wasn't gay, after all I dance a lot like her, but people don't cheer and clap when I do it, of course I don't have the benefit of huge corporations giving me money to give to people in need.

    Interesting, because merely suggesting to someone that you are Yakuza ( using that actual word ) is illegal, and yet the article states that the gangs are not illegal, quite possibly because not all of their activites are illegal, and someone as high up as no2 in the Yamaguchi gumi organization would no doubt have a lot of legal businesses., and as he is in the largest Yakuza family in Japan, it denies belief that he was actively involved in a hands on case of extortion.

    Another interesting point is that the Yakuza are well known for their involvement with construction companies.

    The article is only as factual as the information they are supplied with.

    A bar serves a foreigner drinks ( who looks much older than his 19 years ) no reason to suspect he is a minor. The taxi driver allegedly allows a passenger to get molested, He is a taxi driver driving to a Shinjuku hotel at night, fairly good odds that quite a bit of groping has gone on in the back of his taxi with intoxicated women as the recipients. I assume it was Hinds and his friend that were staying at the Hotel and not the girls, and so the Hotel loaned them wheelchairs to help take their intoxicated dates to their rooms. 5-10 years for taking the young ladies life seems fairly lenient to me.

    Maybe if we went back to the old draconian ways where teachers dished out corporal punishment, parents disciplined their children and policemen could give you a slap around the back of the head we would have generations that believed that they had to work and earn their worth, not just given everything for free.

    The problem itself is deep rooted , I was in Japan in the 80's and met a lot of young Japanese, well so I thought ( I remember a couple of friends that I had known for years ) eventually telling me their dark secret , they were of Korean descent , obviously it never bothered me, but some of our Japanese friends who had known them longer never knew and in their defence were never given the chance to show that it would not bother them either , they also didn't travel overseas as they didn't want their Japanese friends to see their passports,
