That is a child's logic onsen. "I'll only behave if THEY behave" ideology is not even defensible for a 10 year old say.
If it's a wrong doing, it's a wrong doing PERIOD. No ifs, ands or buts.
But secondly I'll go along with your child logic to keep you happy. I don't recall the American government EVER having an official sex slavery system ANYWHERE in the world. Not that it's relevant in the SLIGHTEST to the issue at hand.
Lastly you're speaking about this as if the criticism is only out-of-country/ non- Japanese speakers. You're blaming us for making judgements because we don't have native level japanese, yet you couldn't even read the PLAIN ENGLISH in this article saying that polls show 71 percent of Japanese people found his comments to be absolutely inappropriate.

No lord, just no. The men are the real victims here because if victimized they can't even fight back. At least the women will get a settlement.

humans as a race are a lost cause. Throwing away your life to actually achieve and experience things just to have free food.

To all of you saying their shoild have been more security, are you really saying that som1 shouldnt have the right to end their life when they deem it no longer serves themselves or anyone else anymore? It's clear she was guilty

why do people still comment on stories like this. Let the interest die so we don't have to hear anymore apologist crap that we know abe probably doesn't give two shits about in actuality.

@wtfjapan, and how many of those people at the london olympics were already sub 10 at 17 years old? That's the key difference here.

@wtfjapan he's already defied expected height limitations by hitting 10 seconds at just 17 years old. He's got got a good 10-15 years to improve on that, which statistics say you can at that age.

It would be good to see someone, ANYONE take down that cocky, arrogant Usain Bolt... Here's hoping he succeeds, we need a better role model as the world record holder.

Saying that we should show NO interest in obvious biological differences of the skeletal and muscular structure is equivalent to saying that it is offensive to ask a mother whether the child she gave birth to was a baby boy or baby girl. Because gender shouldn't matter either, right?! So then WHY do you ask? Because there's nothing wrong with it.
Have you ever read shakespeare Yubaru? "The lady doth protest too much, me thinks." When someone such as yourself vehemently, repeatedly denies any biological racial characteristics that undeniably exists (again, this is scientific fact not opinion), it could simply be that you're afraid that if you acknowledge it, you may be opening the pandoras box of racism inside of you. Me personally? I'm afraid of no such thing inside of me because I know such a thing doesn't exist.

@Yubaru- The one who is being blind here is you. Do you not realize the vast physiological advantage on average that the african race has? This is not racism, this is scientific biological fact. People born with those genes are more likely to be taller, and stronger.
It is scientific, biological fact that it's much rare for an Asian to be born with the genes to compete against this advantage.

The japanese people dont have a say in ANYTHING their government does- You do realize that theyre all against restarting nuclear reactors, have protested in the 100s of thousands and the government doesnt give a rats ass? Clearly though im talking to someone who also doesnt give a crap about the basic rights of human beings if you're sympathizing with freaking CHINA. And you also continue to ignore everything im saying.. Ill leave you to your little extremist dream world, i wont miss you.

Forget the morality of it all- Is revenge worth paying 1 billion dollars of tax payer money every 5 years for?
jumpultimatestarsApr. 28, 2013 - 11:23AM JST
@trinklets Yes, but you misunderstood your own point- If there were no death sentence then they wouldn't have to "keep appealing the death sentence" at a premium like you say- because yes you're right, the legal representation for death row inmates always cost incomparably higher than any other.
Studies showed that in California alone, switching death penalty costs to permanent imprisonment would save California more than 1 BILLION dollars over 5 years.
jumpultimatestarsApr. 28, 2013 - 09:11AM JST
nikku you clearly didn't read what i said. It's not a "simple solution" when it costs more to kill them financially than it does to keep them alive. Also who has the right to subjectively determine who "the worst of them" are? Like I said, why just stop at killing criminals if all you just want society to be improved?
jumpultimatestarsApr. 27, 2013 - 08:15PM JST
nikku if you just want to kill people who hinder society, why stop at criminals? Clearly it's revenge and revenge only. Erik said it best. It is also economically not feasible to use the death penalty, it's so expensive.
