    Have you not been reading our comments? We are talking about coming out of an accident with diminished mental capacity from having been whacked on the head.

    You can talk about anything you want all you want. However, I do not see anything to indicate that the driver who called the police came out of the accident with diminshed mental capacity. I just see someone who seems to have overreacted.

    Me too. But not most of the commentators here, who are waay too smart and level headed. Or so they think.

    ? So, you think calling the police before assessing the situation makes sense? One simple question and waiting for the answer could make all the difference. The police have better things to do with their time than go on wild goose chases.

    The driver was ignorant, but not necessarily stupid.

    No. The driver was stupid. He should have stopped his vehicle, gotten out and ask what was going on. He then would have not only seen the situation for what it was, he could have also assisted or called for additional help. Instead, he just gets on his phone and immediately called the police. Stupid and potentially dangerous.

    What a unique feeling it must be to see your possessions now roped off and on display to the public. I wonder if they would be allowed to touch them if they wanted to.

    As Cherry Blossom and rranta said, "Long live the Emperor and the Empress". I will never forget the kindness they showed the people of Tohoku.

    Be aware of your surroundings, on and off the road. And don't drive so fast you put your car into a spin when you brake.

    Absolutely, Pandabelle. This is especially true in inclement weather such as rain or snow.

    It doesn't exactly fit with the popular image of North Korea promoted by the Western Media, does it?

    I get the feeling you do not know a lot about North Korea. Those 'night clubs' are reserved exclusively for tourists from other countries and a select few North Koreans such as government approved guides who have a status that is way above the average North Korean citizen.

    Frungy,

    It was a regular city street. There were no trees from which to leap behind. The driver has been arrested. The driver admits he hit something, but did not think it was a person. You mentioned you were driving in the rain. Driving on a raining day, on a road with a speed limit of 40, does not mean you can drive up to 40 kph. You are always supposed to be driving at a speed that is reasonable for the conditions. Rain means going slower and being more cautious. Trees along the side means you should go slower and be more cautious.

    However, the point is completely moot as turbostat points out. This was a city street and the pedestrians can be seen along the road very easily on such a road.

    The police acknowledged that I reacted in the best way possible and was not at fault I still had points taken off my license for being in an accident.

    If the only thing that was damaged was your own car, you would not be considered to have been legally in a traffic accident. As such, under the Japanese traffic laws, you would not have had any points taken off of your license. Unless you damaged the pole, which you do not mention, there is no reason for you to have had any points taken off of your license. You could have had your insurance increased if you used it, but that has nothing to do with the license points system. That would be your insurance company's decision.

    The assumption is that the driver was 100% in the wrong.

    The assumption in this case is 100% because the driver left the scene of an accident resulting in the injury of a pedestrian. Leaving the scene of an accident is 100% wrong and illegal.

    This discussion has absolutely nothing to do with Saitaima. It has to do with an obviously very mentally disturbed individual who killed an innocent person. I could not care less if people thumb me down for this. This criminal does not deserve to live. I do not say this lightly, but there are times when a society has to say, 'Enough.'

    I do not want to here about this criminal's sad life or situation. Do not give him any more press. Do not encourage anymore copycats. Either put him in a cell for the rest of his life or end his life. Sure, have the trial, but then either put him in a cell for the rest of his life or end his life.

    Will he stay in US or back to Japan?

    Since the article states that he is from Hawaii, I see no reason for him to be sent to Japan.

    Sexual assault? Sounds more like attempted rape.

    That is probably because one of the definitions of sexual assault is attempted rape, which is what certainly seems to be the case here.

    I love the irony of the misspelling in my first post. By the way, I wonder exactly how big this robot is and how much it is expected to cost.

    JT has become nothing but a bunch of folks looking for opportunities to bash SK and China

    This has nothing to do with bashing any country. Without any doubt, in this case, South Korea is in the wrong. Their position is completely indefensible.

    Robi Jr performs a speech recognition system with 1,000 Japanese phrases to respond to human voices.

    This should probabbly be "Robi Jr has a speech recognition system with 1,000 Japanese phrases to respond to human voices."
