The pair reportedly started to quarrel after entering the cafe together. At around 10:40 p.m., the man produced a handgun from his bag, stood up and shot the woman twice, in the jaw and the chest. She was rushed to a hospital but was pronounced dead.Another unusual part of the incident is that the suspect remained silent:
The suspect remained silent during police questioning, according to investigators.This is very unusual behavior in Japan, where suspects usually confess immediately. The police in Japan are not constrained by the U.S. Constitution, and have numerous ways to obtain confessions.
The suspect was not apparently employed and it is very unusual for a person to be carrying a gun, which are rare in Japan. The Ikebukuro district of Tokyo also has a reputation for gang activities and has a relatively high proportion of gambling and sex businesses.In Japan, only the police and criminals have handguns.
This dude is not going to enjoy the rest of his life.
And the Tokyo police chief blames the recent increase in violence on lax gun laws.
Chinese kills a Chinese?
How do they know?
(It’s a joke!)
Say “hi” to the inside of the Japanese prison system, cholo.
I wonder which prison system is worse, Chinese or Japanese?
In Japan they hang you.
In China, they blow your brains out with a rifle. After commanding you to open your mouth so the bullet doesn’t damage your teeth. Which they harvest.
I can tell a Japanese person from a Chinese person in a flash. Usually I can tell the difference from behind, without seeing their face.
Comes from being married to a Chinese woman for more than twenty years.
If you can see their face, it’s easy. Japanese people are pale. Weather in Japan is not the greatest.
Sohhhhh....Chinese people are yellow?
(Again, it’s a joke....)
No, I don't see that.
Some Chinese have skin that's just a little more brown than ours is. Of course, what we call "brown" is just "dark yellow."
Lots of Chinese people have skin that's essentially as white as ours. Some are even a little bit ruddy.
But there are all kinds. People from the south of China are darker, because there's more hot sunny weather there. Same for people from Hong Kong, Singapore, etc. Chinese people consider Hong Kong, Singapore, Malay people all to be Chinese. At least the ones who have money.
They’re no different than Scots, Engrish, German, etc.
They come in all types....
They come in all types....
Yup. Every kind of face, every kind of nose, every kind of chin.
Hair and eye color all the same though.
Japanese hair is coarser than Chinese hair.
Koreans have much more angular faces, and their skin is somewhat darker.
Koreans look down on ethnic Chinese, and on ethnic Japanese. In fact, they look down on everyone.
Same can be said for Japanese people.
Chinese people are (from my experience anyway) somewhat more open-minded. They don't like Japanese people very much though. Even the most open minded Chinese people are wary of Japanese people. Very deep feelings there, very deep.
The Japanese and Koreans are the biggest racists ever.
The fookean don’t like anyone in their country.
Everyone, everywhere in the world, is a racist.
The only people who feel guilty about it are educated (and mis-educated) white Americans.
” Japanese people are pale . Weather in Japan is not the greatest.”
Talk about generalizing . Many women “ prefer “ to keep their skin white as possible . They think it is more beautiful .
Weather not the greatest ? Pray tell how you came to that conclusion ? Yes , we have typhoons - you have hurricanes and tornadoes . Winters are relatively mild compared to northern USA / NE / etc .
If that movie "City Of Life And Death" about the Nanking massacre is making the rounds in China, I would assume those feelings might have been exacerbated.
What's wrong with generalizing? Is it a crime, or a sin?
I use my brain to generalize every day. It's how I survive. So do you, if you're honest with yourself.
Of course, there are cases that don't conform with any generalization. So what?
Tell me all about the wonderful weather in Japan.
GENERALLY speaking it beats the hell out of New York’s weather ! And I lived on Long Island for 14 years before moving to Japan .
I don't recall saying it didn't. In fact, I don't recall mentioning New York at all.
The average New Yorker is surely a few shades lighter than the average Floridian. So what? Do you have a point?
You live in NY , right ? Hence MY mentioning it .
Thanks for telling me where I live.
You made a gross generalization and I called you on it . That’s all .
What was "gross" about it?
I don’t feel guilty. I’m just aware of it.
More like a recognition of the differences in culture.
For instance; “The Chinese drive terrible”. Well, that’s true of Chinese immigrants but, not so of native born Americans of Chinese descent.
Arabs are aggressive and will drive anyone off the road. Not true of Americans of Arab descent.
generalizations of course but, we are culturally different.
Hondurans and Guatemalans are lazy and only come to America for our welfare system. Not true of Americans with their descent respectively.
Brazilians suck at soccer, Germans kill and excel in the sport. ..generally. ...
It’s very easy (90% of the time) to tell the difference between Chinese, Japanese, and Koreans on the streets of Tokyo, even from behind.
I didn't give a number - 90% or any other - because I haven't made a numerical study of my performance.
But what's "gross" about what I said? What aspect of what I said was "gross?"
If so, I apologize.
Also in every culture there are individuals who fight against the tendency to see the differences. There are also individuals who fight against the tendency to feel superior.
It seems to me that only in America (and to some extent in the UK and other northern European countries) do people push the idea that our culture is inferior to basically every other culture in the world.
To me, that seems like overcompensation for something.
They are over compensating for a small intellect....
I need to go back to Taos. Absolutely beautiful place.
What about the hum?
She’s okay. I like that...
After arrest the public prosecutor doesn’t even need to bring charges for something like 23 days —they can keep you up all night, night after night, questioning the suspect.
Confessions lead to conviction in maybe 98% of the time.
If he never makes any kind of statement to the cops in that time then it’s very, very unusual.
Maybe Hong Kong gang activity.
