Really hope the kids who survived are able to recover, and RIP to the ones who didn’t make it.
This is terrible, terrible news.
This is terrible, terrible news.
What should the general public do, tackle citizens arrest him and deliver him to an institution? If someone was shredding paper up and switching seats on a train in the US what would people doI think mental illness is really pushed aside in Japan. Living in Tokyo I see a handful of clearly mentally ill people every week. I saw a man on the train literally rocking back and forth and shredding up paper while constantly switching seats the other afternoon, people just ignore it.
Exactly. The United States has a horrendous track record when it comes to mental health. Try walking down any street on any downtown area in the US or take public transport and it won't take long for you to see the damage Reagan did by revoking the Mental Health Systems Act. And guess what? Those people get ignored by the general US masses too.
I think this is what it comes down to. Higher population density is the big factor here, along with the prevalence of public transit.I live in a small Japanese city of only 50,000 people that surely no one has ever heard of and I still get accosted by mentally unwell people frequently. It's usually harmless and they just want to talk, but sometimes they want to yell and follow you around. My hometown in the US isn't San Fran or NYC, but it still has more than a million people and I never encountered similar situations there. Granted, back home you just drive everywhere and can more easily avoid everyone..
Several residents in the area said they were shocked that such an attack could take place in what is usually a quiet town. Kosuzu Sunayama, 26, who lives near to where the stabbings took place, said she could hear the screams from her home.
"It's not the kind of place to have such a incident. Its not the kind of place to have such a horrible news," Sunayama said. "My heart is aching."
That testimony was later modified to neck.Wish the Bastard survived to face the parents of that kid he killed...and the family of the other two adults.
I don't get it....he stabbed himself in the shoulder before being arrested...but died at the Hospital later? Did he know what he was doing? Is there a vital spot on the shoulder that can kill you?
The thing about rushing a man with a knife is that you'll probably get stabbed before he actually goes down. Most people aren't willing to go in first because of that. Case in point they did rush him and did get stabbed
Korea and China are very similar so it's not a thing of any other country.
Rest in Peace for both the deceased victims.
Kawasaki Police said a total of 19 people were injured, including the two victims who died. Police have named the girl who was killed as Hanako Kuribayashi. Her age was previously given as 12 by a spokesperson at Nippon Medical School Musashi Kosugi Hospital.
The adult male victim, 39-year-old Satoshi Oyama, was a father of a 1st grade student at Caritas Elementary School and a government employee. It is not clear if Oyama's child was hurt in the incident.
All 17 children who were stabbed were girls, most of whom were lower elementary students, according to Saito.
"Innocent students who are raised with love by their parents (have fallen) victim to the pathetic incident. I'm suffering from an unfocused anger and from (the) deepest regret," Saito said.
I'm glad that the SOB got what he deserved. Fuck him.Heh... Some other guy with a knife in Saitama shot by police:
Not surprised that one shot to the abdomen killed. Every cop I’ve seen in Japan is carrying a revolver, they don’t fuck around.Heh... Some other guy with a knife in Saitama shot by police:
