Actually chucky3176, what are YOU talking about. SK has hated Japan for a long time and this video link is quite shocking. Amazing what you can find via google. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bBEXPjDLmRk

As an AKB48 fan I am pleased to hear that the girls and the company is giving back.

I don't know if Biebes knows this or not but when you you become famous and get in that lime light, you are an open target to whatever the media wants to say... it's all a business! They report on stories, true or false and get paid to sell a lot of juicy gossip. Just the way it is, so toughen up Biebes or you will be on the same one way trip to disasterville as Lindsay Lohan was. p.s. not a fan.

I am completely surprised as to how many people on here are in favor of the mother...sickening! You must lack the compassion for those that have life harder then you do. She killed her son, who was mentally disabled! Killed... does that not mean anything to you? It's not the boy's fault he was born mentally disabled, you make him sound terrible.A long time ago, I had worked at an elementary school having to help and care for children who have a mental and or physical disability, it is hard and takes a lot of patience. But you learn a lot from them and that we take being born healthy for granted. I understand she might have felt burnt out but she needed to seek help or find someway to deal with her feelings instead of taking her son's life.

10 years? and the Judge said "It may seem severe". 10 years is a joke! I pray they get tried again and sent into the American prison system. Only then will the word 'severe' actually have meaning...don't drop the soap.

How is the vote even as far as 50/50 lol this is not Porn at all! I am a AKB fan but not a crazed otaku one by any means. People comment negatively on the way they are marketed...well whether you like it or not sex sells! Not sex in reference to porn but rather the "sexy" image. Yeah some may be pervy old men while a ton of their fans are young girls as well. so either way you look at it, at the end of the day they are entertainers, just like entertainers all over the world who dress sexy and pretty for the attention of their fans and would be fans. So stop bickering and and enjoy.

Ocgoodtimes and crazedinjapan, I couldn't agree with you more. People talk about it being inhumane but what part of raping and mass murder is humane? Please tell me! Why should we have to pay taxes just to take care of someone that doesn't value life or someone's life for that matter. The world is better off without evil in it...period!

Instead of 50 years they should send him to 50years in a real prison, as in a US prison. Then he will know what its like to get raped.

Parents are selfish when it comes to their desired "perfect" child. 100% or nothing! Parents will never under stand the alienation half children deal with for the rest of their lives. Never able to claim an identity like the rest of their friends and families. If you have not guessed it, yes I am half.

@koiwaicoffee- you argument is not valid! Bush is not a terrorist first off. So please if your going to compare a terrorist to a president at least learn to compare correctly instead of apples to oranges. Why should we even question the legality. He organized two planes to fly into the twin towers killing over 3000 ppl, sent his terrorists to suicide bomb tons of countries all over the world and we question if its legal to kill him unarmed? what is this garbage! I knew it when I heard about the operation on tv... "Had to have been the S.E.A.L.S." =)

"MrDog" I could not agree more!!!! The death penalty needs to be in effect for sure! Regardless of him showing remorse, that is the biggest cop-out from criminals.
