My son is going through a similar experience at Japanese junior high right now with his Japanese teacher. These teachers would not dare to behave this way if the parents were watching.

Brainiac, he obviously wasn't go to a Halloween party was he. The cops should have kept an eye on him and took a DNA sample while they had him. They would probably solve a few other cases while they're at it. An reasonable person would know he was planning something and whilst your logic is great it would have failed in the situation like the cops did.

Detained him longer like they do for people suspected of drugs.
PenfoldAug. 27, 2015 - 07:01AM JST
What? Why are the police only concerned about whether he had drugs or not? He clearly was intending to do something nefarious with what he had on him!

These poor kids were neglected by their parents and were probably being bullied. Then had the misfortune to cross paths with this evil p.o.s. What a gut wrenching, horrific story. RIP Ryoto and Natsumi

Look on the bright side, if he goes for a prosthetic he'll be able to get a bigger one than he had before.

Seems like a guy who had so much going for him. I guess he let his ego, and his manhood get in the way!
He hasnt done us gaijin men any favors with this terrible act, that's assuming he is actually guilty of the crime.
RIP to the poor girl........and so sad for his children having to know what Dad was capable of, this will affect them for the rest of their lives.

I've been using the software for a while now. one of the things I like about makeleaps is the ability to convert quotes into invoices. It's also made it a lot easier to keep track of things and get the relevant information to your accountant. If you are a foreigner running a business in Japan it's well worth checking out.
