Japan is the only country possibly where murder takes place in which the perpetrator intentionally kills his victim in order to serve time in prison where he will be taken care of up until his execution if given the death penalty. A 32 year-old Japanese man beat to death with a steel pipe a stranger ambushing the victim when the victim exited a toilet in a park in Oiso in Kanagawa, Japan yesterday. First thing that comes to mind is where is compensation to the victim’s family? The obviously disturbed thug will be taken care of by the government of Japan, possibly even for the rest of his life while incarcerated. Perhaps to deter further acts of intended benefits from welfare with crimes involving murder, the criminal after a court hearing and found guilty, should be put to death immediately to deter (regardless what anti-death penalty advocates think) any future similar acts of such senseless (not in the eyes of the thug) violence. Hemp isn’t used in executions by hanging in Japan, a well lubricated steel cable is used instead.
