I really can't comprehend how they could do something like that to a little girl.

How many victims are necessary before the justice system does what's right? One is enough in the US.

It IS kids having kids. She was making babies at 15, not even an ichinensei, and he a sannensei. Candle wax, aluminum foil, and onion skin = she was trying to feed herself. Mocheake is right. No respect for or understanding of human life.

There is some evidence to suggest that ancient Japanese discovered the Americas before any Europeans. Samples of pottery found in South America look strikingly similar to Jomon period pottery from old Japan.

You guys can thumbs down me from now until doomsday, what matters is the safety of the child, not the feelings of the mother. Where's the sympathy for the little one who trusts her life to the "responsible" adult?

Nothing ever happens to minors in Japan who commit such crimes. Even the girl who killed and dismembered her friend (after nearly beating her father to death with a bat) will be released in a few weeks. If I were his parents, I'd change the locks and leave his belongings in the street with a note apologizing for interfering in his life.

I was so disappointed when I moved to Japan and found out that Denny's here doesn't even know what a "Lumberjack Slam" is. Now that's what I call an American breakfast!

More meaningless awards heaped upon other meaningless awards. Stay tuned for the eyebrow-plucking queen awards, the most wax-free ear canals queen awards, and don't forget the best removed calluses queen awards.

"he was fed up with his mother interfering in his life" "Son you should stop playing video games and texting your friends. Do your homework, and study for the exams so you can graduate."

But because it didn't cross the mother's mind that something like this could happen, it did.

@ Thomas - That's when you purchase the clamp-on locks at the 100 yen shop. They are installed at the top of the sliding door or window. They're out of reach, and too tight for a child to loosen anyway. I raised two small grandchildren in a 7th floor apartment, and had these. So this near-tragedy could have been avoided for 100 yen.

Nothing short of a miracle. Mom, how hard would it be to put locks on your balcony door? Another complacent parent, who got lucky this time. Thumbs down me all you want, she chose laundry over her child's safety.

Why would several of you thumbs down my 1st comment? Do you have no sympathy for the parents? Or are your views so jaded that when I said "I hope they meet her someday" you thought I meant the same fate instead of meeting her in heaven?
