I know the town where the body was hauled up from. I have watched many a boat go in and out of that harbour. That pleasant memory is soiled a bit now.

Emiko was so stupid to go to Hawaii. She must have gotten so confident in the way Japan snubbed the US court decision for custody that she thought she was safe to travel there. A pity all these cases are not resolved so satisfactorily.

Ishihara isn't qualified to be anything more than a traffic warden. Just give him a uniform, a peaked hat and a stick with a light on it and I'm sure the little facist throwback would be in his element. For how long will this idiot be humoured? Please stop giving this neanderthal power.

You wouldn't see that happen on Western TV....all we'd see is a person running to a car wearing a jacket to over their heads as the media circus fought to get a god picture shot of the "accused".

I don't understand what Ishihara is trying to do. He says he wants to secure the islands to Japan by buying them from their Japanese owner. Why the hell would China acknowledge the title of land as legitimate in the first place? If he thinks China will accept this "land buy', then maybe he'd be interested in buying the Sydney Opera House from me....I'll just need to....ummm..."dig" up the land title. I'm sure it was around my office somewhere.

One employee apparently didn't meet Japanese standard attendance records. He had 640 hours of unused sick leave but was marked down for poor attendance which contributed to the reason he was chosen in the redundancy process.
Another employer was a Health and Safety Supervisor, who drew a lot of attention to asbestos issues in the plant. He was made redundant, too.
Some interesting explanations to come in the court case from Toyota it seems.

Why do the kids have to dragged into people's breakdowns and die? I mean, you decide to kill yourself, why take the kids with you? It is so self-centred and cruel. The poor husband not only has to accept his wife is dead ( in this case she survived) but that his kids died as well!! I hope she is kept in prison for years, so she can daily remember what she had done and how her husband must hate her. Leave the kids alone! If someone is determined to commit suicide then he/she should leave others out of it!

There have been cases in Japan where the nature of the murder was such that minors were charged as adults. And I am referring to ages younger than 18. I don't see that this case is any different. No, arguing that being a minor is enough to save this guy is wrong. The brutalitity of his crime to me is such that he forfeits his life. Rot in hell you waste of space.

He raped and killed her, holding her throat for 3 minutes. No, doesn't sound like an accident to me. Rot in jail for the rest of your life you pathetic little waste of a human being.

I hope the rocket crashes and burns on take-off...embarrassing NK on the world stage no less. They build a rocket while their people starve?! The sooner this despot government is overturned, the sooner Korea can be whole again and can forget this sad episode in their national history.

It could be a single culprit, sick in the head and on his way to becoming a serial killer. And it could also be a group of kids who think this is a fun game to alleviate their boredom. I didn't notice any comments raising this as a possibility, so I'm putting it out there.

Where is the father in all this? What was he doing? I have this image of him putting a pillow to his head at night and telling his wife to go stop the racket as he has work in the morning. But maybe I'm being unfair. Maybe he knew nothing about it. BTW, I bet after she assaulted the little ones they cried even louder and longer.

Good, this should be the end of it. Since there were no reported accidents or deaths resulting from this, I would say it was caught in time. But let's see how many people exercise their litigious rights and try and get a money handout, anyway. AM I being cynical? Probably......so sue me.

Well, isn't that a kick in the teeth. Instead of looking for a similar place in Japan to live, they decide to leave the country altogether. Why, don't they trust their government to look after their interests?....silly question, of course not.
