there is over a 99% conviction rate when caught yet a huge percentage of those have been proven to be unjustly accused... If this officer actually DID bump her by accident and knew the statistics of conviction rate, he made the right decision both to first try running, as well as to plead guilty once caught so that he would at least get a reduced charge. Those are the choices any innocent man should make in japan's current system.

That's what's bound to happen to anyone that doesn't know to look both ways before crossing the street. You can never count on cars to notice you for you. Parents need to teach their kids this basic lesson in personal responsibility: Look both ways! Crossing or none!

@Reckless speaking as an almost 25 year old virgin who goes to the gym AND does yoga, I can 100% assure you that just because you ATTEND something regularly doesn't mean you'll ever get to know people. Some people attract attention naturally and other people keep to themselves naturally. We have the ability to be invisible. It's clear you have to risk being viewed as the creep at the gym who hits on girls if you want to even have a chance to get any, and I'm not prepared for the risk >.>

Anyone who actually believes this could happen because of the verbal behavior of one school coach is very short-sighted. No matter how awful the coach was, there must've been a whole host of other problems, possibly at home too, to make this the incident that broke the camel's back. Calling him "too sensitive" while knowing nothing about his life is ludicrous. At 14 if you have trouble at home it makes the whole world seem like a dark prison.

The fact that north korea had the vile audacity to dare give the parents fake ashes of their daughter is one of the most disgusting things I've ever heard....

um. as for the part against the akb48 commercial for it "encouraging homosexuality", I was told by Japanese friends that the Japanese weren't uptight about sexuality and homosexuality like the west is because they are a secular society that never experienced the influence of Christianity.... Was I lied to? Because apparently the conservative Japanese also got this resentment from somewhere.

i dont think it's as "complex" as they're trying to lead us to believe. First off, there is no reason for a breed that even has a remote inclination to such violence to not be within the confines of a fenced in area.

@SenseNotSoCommon, you couldn't find a single case where the victim actually died, could you? In Japan roof snow casualties happen every year, in Canada nobody dies...
@hokkaidoguy in quebec we can get up to 4m a year, especially recently, but if you head just a little north to mont ste-anne it gets over 6m sometimes. If you want to talk about records though one city in B.C. got 24 meters one year lol. That's not my point though, my point is Japan only has a very small region that actually gets ANY legitimate amount of snowfall, whereas Canada gets snowfall literally everywhere. Hokkaido could fit inside Canada 120 times over.

@aspara we have much more total snowfall throughout canada, yet I've never heard of it happening here, yet I read about it happening in Japan every year..?
