    I predicted this a couple of weeks ago. Didn't I? The show business decides the fate of their puppets and easily manipulates the public through various media. They are more powerful than the government itself ...

    You need to understand Japanese culture and way of thinking to comprehend this ... In short, they are saying that they do not have self incriminating evidence in their own hand, which they can trust, and therefore have unanimously decided they do not need to be blamed for it! Well, it is a silly psychology but I see it all the time at various levels.

    Now they have to dispatch a fighter jet to fly over a 1000 miles every time a Chinese fisherman gets a bit close to the islands, from taxpayers money. They have also engaged themselves in a meaningless dispute that will get to nothing over the next couple of decades until Japanese population falls to a level where all islanders have passed away or moved to Rojin homes near Tokyo! Clever move, Abecomics ...

    The whole story is a sham. Do you really believe all these young pretty women on TV have no sex life? Their sex lives start with the directors and producers of the programs and continues to many others they need for their contracts. The truth is that somebody decided Becky needed to be replaced by a newer face, and what would be an interesting scandal to show the force of the Media to the Japanese public, in bringing justice to the society!

    Essentially, Japanese system of justice Discriminates Systematically between Japanese and non-Japanese individuals. In this system, a Japanese individual should not be jailed for offenses made against non-Japanese. This case is a good example. But there are thousands. For example they do not care at all for wrong translation offered to non-Japanese people in their court system. They hire anyone to do the bad translations. But they are extra careful to explain the technical meanings of Japanese legal words to Japanese persons in the court! This country is no different now from its Dejima roots.

    There is nothing about culture here. It is only to deceive the Japanese people. This is another example of how corruption exists in Japan. The whaling activity is hugely subsidized and people's taxes are paid to fisheries to do some obsolete activity with a very small market. If Japan withdraws from the International Whaling association, the government cannot subsidize this whaling under the name of research. Then no fisheries will be able to make money but will go bankrupt. Japan has its own way of corruption through corrupt politicians and associations and groups, and this is just one example.

    He also told police he had wanted to kill someone for a long time.

    Don't you think he may be the reincarnation of some WWII soldier or another mass murderer? What other logical explanation is there for such insane excuse?!

    This statistic has a context and the figure should be comprehended within its context. To me, it means that 13% of girls have had at least one instant of compensated dating before reaching adulthood. This number as you see, does not seem inflated.

    Abe and Park were both pushed by the US to enter these talks for the fear of China's increasing activity in the region. The funny thing is how Abe and Park both try to pretend they are sticking to their original pledge while in fact they need to find a solution soon, they are told ;-)

    The way the confession is taken is also funny! They commonly insist that the accused should do hansei! This is then used indirectly to say the accused has accepted responsibility and kind of confessed! They start from there! In the next interogation, they start from accused having accepted and now should only tell then the story otherwise he will be accused of lying, and more trouble will come ...

    I totally agree that child porn should be banned in any form. However, how do you judge the age of a "drawn" person? Children are defined based on age. It could be under 15. When it is a person, the industry finds adults with childish looks! With drawings, how can one say for sure? Well, they may be stupid enough to mention an age in the story of the manga or draw a kindergarten as the place. But they may simply continue drawing childish looks for college girls! Does anyone know how the law can be implemented in such conditions?

    Those familiar with the justice system in Japan will tell you that judges are the best among them all, including prosecutors, police, lawyers, .... The fact is, as this case shows, judges are not that good either. Essentially, any accusation makes one guilty unless he can prove himself innocent. Welcome to Japan, the land of the weird ...

    Suga said, “It is extremely natural that the government will introduce reduced tax rates simultaneously when it raises the consumption tax.”

    Abe's administration supports special interest groups. They will give tax exemptions to the groups that they represent.

    It is Japan's responsibility to send troops to fight alongside American soldiers when US soldiers are here on Japanese bases to protect Japanese from threats. Abe has to act on his responsibilities towards their most important ally, supporter and partner.

    Abe has to do it because the US says so. The Us also stopped the central bank in Japan from more monetary easing. We need to let the US take care of these policy issues because there is little wisdom among the politicians here. Do not worry; big brother is in control :-)

    Lawyers in Japan are mostly too evil. I wonder if he did it because he had no hope for justice if he took legal action. The lawyer could have been a womanizer and he wanted to put an end to all of that! We need to hear more about the guy's motive ...

    @asdfgtr Maybe it was not necessary to win the war and USA could have waited for Russia to take Hokkaido forever, and to have more US soldiers die entering land of Japan. Yes, maybe that is the case. But I hear beyond the mushroom cloud the screams of more than 20 million people in Asia who suffered from Japanese aggression; I hear the screams of unit 731 victims who were cut open alive and without anesthesia who said: we are not dead yet, do not cut us yet! Don't you think their screams may have something with the only nuclear explosions on two cities?

    A couple of months ago there was a reality program about a father and daughter who had not met for 15 years BECAUSE she worked and lived in Tokyo!! And when the Tv brought them together, they bowed to each other, no hug, not even shaking hands, and started crying! I think such examples show love between father and daughter is a taboo in Japan (yes, you read it correctly) and such commercials use the excitement associated with showing that. My Japanese friends always are surprised to know my dad calls my sister every day or kisses her whenever they meet. You cannot have that in this country ...

    OK, let me suggest a Test: Let's assume Julie Hamp is guilty of Smuggling Drugs into Japan. Thus she got drugs from her accomplice in the US who Smuggled the drugs by trying to hide them into a fake necklace box. So he is at least as guilty, and probably guiltier than her. Why not ask the US to extradite him on Drug Smuggling charges? ........ Now you see how ridiculous this sounds. Any court in the US can have a laugh about this: oh, crazy Japanese hahaha. Even here they know very well how this sounds because in fact they know this is no crime. Now let me tell you how a Developed country would deal with this issue: Take the painkillers. Send a letter you need to prove with a doctor's letter and prescription that you medically need this, and if not, you must pay a fine of 20,000 yen. This would be the cost of checking the box, processing the letter and paperwork. Period.

    to A Realist I wish you knew the realities of police work in Japan. I had a friend who was interrogated for driving at 90 km/h in a wide national road that most drivers drive at 80 to 100 all day long but has one of those mouse traps! He had to go for the routine interrogation. They asked him questions about his personal life such as his ex-wife and having been told he could be silent in fact they would insist to get an answer anytime he showed reluctance to answer, such as to mention his ex-wife's name that had no relation to the incident. My friend being a psychologist realized they were intimidating questions similar to what is by gangs harassing a man to get full obedience. You can guess what is happening to Julie Hamp. If we still have gangs on the streets, if we have bully problems at school and work, if ... it is because of this "Intimidation Culture" that that "Any accused is guilty till he/she can prove innocence". Legally speaking, Julie Hamp could challenge all accusations against her in this case but the first recommendation a Japanese lawyer would provide her is that she must accept guilt, apologize, resign to save Toyota from embarrassment, and Tolerate the torturous treatment.
