  • Akihabara massacre.One year after.

    Akihabara district marked one year anniversary of masscare in which 7 people were killed and 10 were injured.A 26-year old guy has been charged.The trial has not started yet.
    One year ago the news made headlines all over the world.But the comments in Japanese media, mainly something like: he is bad, but our society is perfect, were completely different than in international mass media.
    "Such crimes are offen prepared by mentaly unstable men.Because of the stigma of mental illness that exists in Japan, the mentally ill often go untreated.Economic conditions are also blamed.Society`s have-nots "lose everything, from hope to motivation in life."Japanese youth face pressures because of the country`s demanding educational system.Teachers and parents hold chidren personally responsible for their failures.But inevitably once the focus shifts from the victims, the questions will be asked about what could have driven a man to murder passers-by.Can it be explain away as the action of an individual which could not have been forseen or prevented? Or is it a symptom of something more disrurbing in Japanese society, pressure or stress so great that it drives troubled people to commit terrible acts with tragic consequences?"

    On the news (NHK) they said "one year anniversary." Isn't there another word they could use? I sorta like to reserve the word "anniversary" for pleasant things...

                  I think we all agree that "anniversary" is inappropriate. It should read "The Super Happy Fun Stab Spree 1 Year Ago Memorial"
