And who can blame her. I boggles my mind that people are defending what he said. Whatever your thoughts on birth control, he was completely out of line here, and he doesn't sorry at all to me. Sorry that he's losing some pocket money maybe.

Why would do you that...? The internet is pretty huge. I'm pretty sure they could have stolen all of his stuff without hacking into a major company's computers. Maybe not the unreleased stuff, but seriously?

This story disgusts me on so many levels. Why even have that many dogs if you couldn't take care of them? And then to just leave them alone to die like that? So cruel. Perhaps this woman has issues with hoarding or something, but it's still no excuse. 9 dogs are dead now because of her ignorance and neglect. I also hope she does some time for this, or some kind of punishment at least.

Nothing makes me angrier than to hear people telling others to "get over" an important part of history. I have no doubt that most Japanese people would not deny it, but then comments like this come to the forefront, and I cannot blame China for getting upset. Just like I would not go to Hiroshima, as an American, and say that they should "get over it" because it happened a long time ago. Or outright DENY that it happened, like this guy basically did. Moving past such a horrible event requires owning up to it and healing, not being petty and minimizing it just because it happened a long time ago.

But why? Why would you do that? Usually there's some half baked excuse like "the baby was too noisy" or "I was stressed", or maybe even a /logical/ explanation, but I find it strange there isn't one printed here. Maybe there's more to the story. Regardless, really stupid and dangerous.

I'm not above believing people can turn their lives around, but she really is such a wreck, it's getting harder and harder to believe she can pull this off. But if she can stay clean long enough to actually do the episode, more power to her.
Though I agree, there's something really wrong about the fact that she is not in jail or serious, serious counseling for longer. Anyone else would still be behind bars right now. That's the power of money and fame though, I suppose. Sigh.

That's just pathetic. I don't really blame the cops, because I'm sure they get mess like this all the time-- though it is strange they waited so long. But ultimately you have to wonder about the kind of guy who gets drunk enough to do something that stupid. I don't care how angry you are, what makes you think that would be a good idea, ever?

Horribly sad... I can imagine the stress this man must have been under, but that is no excuse to do that to another human being. Completely wrong.

NetNinja -- I have no idea what you're going on about, but none of it has anything to do with the article. But if you want to make blanket statements, let's consider how odd it is that in news articles like this, if a man does something like this, that one guy is a nutjob. If a girl does something this, suddenly all women are crazy and violent. Something to think about it.
Anyway, sounds like she didn't take the breakup to well... I hope the guy comes out of it all right.

Ugh. Complete disregard for these women's privacy and dignity. Why would you even consider doing something so wretched? It'd be one thing if he was doing it for personal use (still reprehensible and disgusting on so many levels), but then he had to go that extra, repulsive mile to make money off of it. I hope he rots.

You might as well say "It's a good thing he didn't have a flamethrower/bazooka/insert weapon of choice!". That's not really the point here. Poor kid though, I wonder what made the older one so angry.

Very unsettling. If everything was locked up tight, I wonder if this was a double suicide or something. Quite sad no matter what.
