Subject: Justice - Japanese Style...
This came to me from one of my Canadian friends!
Demands of Kidnapper & Release Negotiations
"I have 3 demands or I'll kill the boy!"
Negotiators assess the situation from next door.
Head Negotiator dispatched
Everyone goes home in time for dinner. (Well, almost everyone...)
In Canada - We would assume this guy is innocent and we would attempt to discuss the situation for hours, but more likely, even a day or longer. During this time we would feed him anything he asked for and provide warm clothing etc to ensure his comfort.
When it was all resolved we would give him a fair trial, having appointed the finest QC free of charge to represent him. If we found him guilty (unlikely) we may send him to prison for a few years. The prison would be close to his home, so as not to cause distress and anguish to his relatives. While in prison he will have a roof over his head, watch cable TV, visit the gym and sauna daily, eat like a king and maybe learn the law, gain a degree (for free) and before we know it he'll turn around and sue the Police negotiator, the Police Authority and the Home Office - all this and more is paid for with our tax $$$s!!! In Japan - They keep their expenses and time to a minimum! No wonder their cars cost less.
