Japan has prisons?  I thought if you were arrested there, you forced to compete on game shows with painful and embarrassing objectives in order to regain your freedom.

Mugato: FloydA: Mugato: Wow. If I were a Japanese prisoner I'd go ahead and perform Sepultura. Wait, that's a band name. The one where you fall on your sword.

Larping?

No, Pantera. shiat, that's death by panther and also a band name. And there aren't even any panthers in Japan. WTF am I on?


You've been smoking too much Seppuku. You should cut back.

clowncar on fire: 99% conviction rate is based upon some really sound investigating first.


Yeah that's why there's demands to record confessions now and various arguing over if that will tie the hands of police or not.

iheartscotch: seppuku? I know hara kiri is the one where you cut your stomach open.


It's the same thing. 腹切り(harakiri) vs. 切腹 (seppuku) (notice the characters are common but different order) first is the "native Japanese reading" version and the other is "Chinese loanword version" but they mean the same thing. It's like "shiat" and "defecate" mean the same thing, one is original Anglo-Saxon and the other is adopted Norman.

TV's Vinnie: clowncar on fire: doglover: clowncar on fire: FTFA  "Human rights campaigners say Japan's prison system is anything but cuddly, and point to often harsh conditions for inmates, including extended use of solitary confinement and spartan cells."

Because punishment is supposed to be more like time spent when the family is out on vacation for the summer and you're accountable to no one for a month or two.

In a country with a 99% conviction rate and no trial by jury and police have a month to interrogate you off camera before they even have to tell anyone you've been arrested?

Eat a giant dick that it itself made of smaller dicks.

It looks like we all need to eat a bag of dicks.

No. The Japanese ran a facility known as Unit 731 (Google it up), and for that, they deserve to eat the biggest dicks of all.
