No too long ago the age of consent in Japan for women was only 14 years old, with girls 15 and 16 dropping out of school to work in brothels, soap land, or solo on the streets of Shinjuku.

****I agree that U.S. military personnel do not conduct themselves appropriately in Japan, and the majority of the atrocities they commit, they would never dream of doing in there home town. BUT! I think Japan needs to take responsibility for sending the wrong message!! A message that even Japan Policemen interpret incorrectly! "YOUNG CUTE GIRLS! SEX! ETC!!
and a prime example of sending the wrong message!!
"Okinawa cancels plan to use young women’s thighs as advertising space"
This is one of the articles in Japan Today. Who would even think about such a ploy to advertise products. Let's see.
short skirts and decals on the thighs of high school aged girls....to the delight of 40 something men!
And everyone wonders why men consider touching women in crowded trains.

If the condemned are given prior notice, you would have the same three ring circus that you have in the United States. News correspondents standing outside the prison, hoards of people being paid y300 and hour and a free boxed lunch to wave signs in protest, as the media speculates the outcome.
Japan has a system that should be adopted in other countries. It's a quiet process, and the criminals get no publicity at all. They are faceless! And should remain as such until the end. Someone lost their life at the hands of the condemned, and they do not deserve to be fore-warned of their execution.
..and the method of execution, fits the crime.

Now! This explanation for misconduct is very similar to most of the explanations by military people for misconduct!
Hmmm....imagine that! No suspended sentences, or 3 month suspensions from work only, for the military people. Everyone wants them in prison.

These measures sound like trouble for Okinawa's off-base drinking establishments that rely on the military people to make money. Tourism is not very hight during this time of the year in Japan because japanese people are sooooo season orientated. Christmas date is on every young girl's mind at this time of the year...and skiing and snowboarding is around the corner...

This is the other situation that the NPA never takes seriously! STALKERS!!
And the story always ends the same. Girl says no! Guy begs! Guy stalks! Then Guy kills girl!

I see two things extremely wrong with this situation!!!
1. There is always the closing line or "....was being seen at a hospital for mental illness treatment.
2. Apparently one in Japan is capable of providing treatment for mental illness!!!
Child abuse in Japan is waaaaaaaaaaaay out of control!! We are not talking spankings, we are talking about murders.

I completely understand!
The NPA has no idea who committed the murder, so they are focusing their efforts on a case they CAN solve, and that would be the absence of a license to operate a night club! Forget about the guy that died! R.I.P. dude!

I agree with Rickyvee! Now they should search for her bank book, and near-by relatives that needed money.

****I know you cannot always put people in prison for something they MAY do! But it seems ludicrous that we have to wait until some "sicko" to act out their twisted thoughts and harm others before we can put them away. BUT, there are signs along the way...and this guy is showing the signs of a potential killer.

Ever notice that the murders always say "...transported to the hospital and pronounced dead"? Were they a.) dead already, b.) died at the hospital, or c.) died on the way to the hospital. I would bet my yen on "c" due to the lack of paramedics in the ambulances.

****WHY DO THEY ALWAYS TRY TO EMPHASIZE THAT THE POLICE OFFICERS ARE "OFF DUTY" OR "WERE DRUNK"? Whether they are working or at play....Police officers are should be held responsible for their actions because they are respresentatives of the law! And they are using the same brain to make judgement calls in and out of uniform. Japan's screening process for police officers requires some serious revamping.

Sad! Really sad. Infant children in Japan are suffering at the hands of infant parents that failed to mature prior to having children. Young men especially, experience anxiety dealing with babies due to their inexperience with dealing with children, and their own need to have their mother comfort, and care for them to the age of 40. I spend the better part of my life in Japan...and the masses lack maturity. Everyone wants to be young, young looking, irresponsible outside of work. Wake-up Japan....children are not toys!!

Where's the "Sting" operation? There are plenty of Japanese policewoman that can pose as a teenage girl walking alone near the river, with her service revolver, handcuffs, whistle, etc. in her book bag! Why do the police always wait for some average citizens to nab criminals of this type?

Alison! The Looney Bin in Japan is just a summer camp on a farm, and after a couple of years she will be back on the streets stabbing people again. Yes! this person is definitely crazy, but she belongs in prison with people like her...

"Babies making babies.."
In western society, children learn about infants by taking care of the siblings while parents work, or teenage girls babysit for part-time income. That is not the case in Japan, and after having a baby, women stay in the hospital for a couple of weeks to learn to care for a baby! Babies are not toys!
