"Not to condone violent acts at all, but the stalking and aberrant behavior I have seen in Japan (personally) is significantly linked with unemployment."
There is a particular area in Tokyo, where I've seen over time fights break out amongst japanese too. There is another street I've noticed that is quite hostile towards non japanese, such that so, the non japanese move around in tethered crews for protection on that street. I wold predict as situations worsen, all such violence will increase.

Mr. Taylor, this is not about 'betrayal.'
Loyalty and exalted virtue go out the door when geopolitical considerations enter the arena.
To put it bluntly, the money/power which the LDP and their close associates represent to the US is of far greater value to your higher-ups than any service you performed as a marine, as much as it may sting to hear such words spoken.
The deadly white extremist groups of America will clash with their political opposition.
And because they wont be able to identify who is on what side like Pelosi indicated an unprecedented destruction like the roman empire is announced in many media platforms.

The Japanese industrial prison complex is not designed for the most part for non Japanese, and those guys probably wont be able to adapt in it. I'ts probably better for the Japanese to determine the prison sentences, and let them serve it in the US federal prison system, like they usually do for US military people who commit felony crimes in Japan.

" you encounter kids of all ages either blocking any throughway in their typical "wall" formation whether on foot or bicycle."
Their adults do that crap too, and if you call them out on it or ring a bike bell, they get highly indignant about it, with the backing of the kobanites. Just shows you another aspect of the real quality of public life in J-land

Beware some of these nutcracks and crackettes will use their vehicle as a bullying weapon. I've seen many road rage, reckless drivers, etc, incidents. One infamous case was the "Akihabara man" who mowed down a crowd in Akihabara.

One time I was on a subway, and I heard a woman let out a large scream, being the only non j in that train car they all turned and looked at me- -typical, but both my hand hand been on the straps since I entered the train. Turns out it was a j man, who got nabbed by the train staff for his foolishness.

I stayed in a haunted apartment before in Japan, its dangerous; I got sick, and moved to another haunted place by mistake and got slightly injured-startled by a strange noise . Come to find out the fudosans have a list of what they call "stigmatized apartments" which they rent to jns at much reduced prices.
