    Row Bur: Thanks, one of the more sensible comments on this post.

    To ask for jail time, firing, etc is extreme, especially if CrazyJoe's added information is true. I'm sure most of us over 40 remember being subjected to some sort of humiliation/punishment by teachers (standing in the corner, chalk throwing, etc) and while upsetting at the time, many of us turned out all right. And to be clear, I'm not condoning physical harm to students/teachers in any way, shape or form.

    I always thought her name was Lola or Lora/Laura...

    What difference does it make if the nurse was acquainted with the parents or not? He tooks the kids without permission and the parents obviously felt something was peculiar about his actions, enough so to call the police. Not so fond of the parenting skills here, but at least they showed enough concern (albeit after the fact) to follow up.

    Laguna, thanks. Was curious about stalking victims being granted a (legal) restraining order as opposed to a spouse who is/was the victim of violence. Most stalkers aren't necessarily violent, so can one get a restraining order based on the number of 'visits', emails, phone calls...not just physical harm?

    Does anyone know if Japan has 'restraining orders' for use against stalkers? I know it exists for things like DV and stalkers write statements saying they'll comply with police orders to stop harassing, but what I'm referring to is a legal order/document that prohibits a person from 'visiting' or contacting somone (i.e. calling, email). If one violates the 'restraining order' they go to jail. Whether the document is enforced is a whole other story...and isn't my question.

    If you take sick leave you lose pay, and you get so much hassle for taking a holiday or refusing overtime as well as ruin your future chances of promotion that it's not worth doing.

    Rubbish. Why would you lose pay for taking a sick day? Most companies give employees sick days as well as annual leave/holidays. I'm thinking this man hurt his chances of a promotion more by doing this, than by taking a day off...but that's just my opinion.

    Ridiculous waste of time. Most people know this as "ore ore sagi" and they want to change it why?

    So how's it work if one flees the scene of an accident, but not to avoid a breathalyzer test? Less than 12 years? It should be 12 years, period. More if the victim dies.

    Nah,edojin, they'll be eating steaks man. I read somewhere that SOFA personnel imprisoned get different treatment/means while in prison. Before anyone begins with the confessions being coerced, remember that one of them admitted to the rape when this first came up.

    tmarie: why is it "likely" the father had a mental illness? because he's 75 yrs old? i'd like to know your rationale, my pops getting close to 75...need to be prepared. BTW: could've easily been the son who was a burden on the aging father, yes?

    Each country modernizes their own traditions (e.g. Thanksgiving for the US). If you're arguing Japan shouldn't use modern equipment to catch whales, then don't use an oven to cook the ham/turkey, or a car/airplane to visit the relatives, don't use electricity for that matter. Taiji uses the traditional method of beating dolphins. When any of you become PM, then change the tradition...until then, let Japan do what she will. (BTW: I'm indifferent on the matter. Couldn't care if whale hunting stopped or continued, so long as there's a good number out there.)

    Gotta wonder...man punches LCD screen falls under the "Crime" section and a coach assaults a student (who later commits suicide) falls under "National" news.

    Please, please, please stop with the 'Japanese/Okinawans rape too' rationale. I understand the point, but at least come up with a better argument.

    Akemi: So if this was a little girl covering up a man's (lower) front side, you'd still consider it as no children being harmed or sexually depicted? It's not necessarily this picture, so much as the idea it conveys...it's not appropriate for a child to be taken photos with nude adults regardless of how explicit (or not) the picture is.

    Yubaru: Exactly my thoughts. Instead of Hashimoto worrying about who in public service has tattoos, he and his staff should be focusing on issues like this. This is nothing but lip service to show he cares, but has nothing to address the problem.
