I doubt this would do much, especially seeing as it's only for 4 weeks. No doubt there are other mentally unstable in the base and I think they would have no problem waiting out the 4 weeks before they can go out on the hunt again. Might be an idea to create an armed Okinawa citizen militia to keep these anti-socials in check

@Peter Qinghai: I agree that this part of Japanese culture should be reformed and abandoned, however I also believe that banning it overnight will only push it underground where the minors will be abused and victimised far more than they would be with the industry out in the open

It would be interesting to know what the "irreconcilable differences" were. Anyway, better to end it sooner than later if it's not going anywhere

I see Shinto used more as a tool for Japanese nationalism and race superiority mythology rather than military aggression, although they previously came hand in hand. It's a Japan-unique religion which is obviously highly prized for that alone, and is understandable that it is manipulated for political gain
Posted in: There’s no doubt that Shinto was used by the government during the war. But is there a religion that has not been used as a reason for fighting? Shrines in themselves are not aggressive.

A lot of Japanese I know truly believe that Japan was forced into the attack on Pearl Harbour and so were justified, so I'm thinking that Abe paying his respects at PH might seem a bit strange, though I do hope that he does one day

These industries exist solely because there is high demand. Banning these types of industries will only push them underground. Changing this would require a cultural shift, which can't be done through legislation or overnight. Therefore the best we can hope for at the present time is to reduce abuse and of the people working in these industries. The Tokyo police's response here is appropriate I think

I think protesting at Trump rallies is pretty pointless and could possibly even be counterproductive

The US military bares responsibility for not foreseeing a situation like this. Surely they can spot an sociopath when they're working for them? Unless they are surrounded by the same kind

Really scary to hear that the girl raised her concerns with the police yet they did nothing, perhaps even giving her a false sense of security.. They really need to get their stalking policies updated here..
