Like with everything else in the media, its just senstationalised crap, to make you think there is a problem. Again, the youth are the target.

Kids have been acting up for eternity. Its nothing new, but the media just want better

  Japan is one of the safer countries  
They have a few incidents of violence but on the whole it's a lot safer than America.

  Good for him.  
When i was younger my older brother use to
be mean to me all the time.he use to pick on me and treated me like shit.he use to beat me up all the time.I always thought about stabbing him or doing something bad to was really that bad.Plus my dad he use to encourage him to treat me like that.I hope they let that child go off easy.i now what he been through.They should just let him go see a pshycyatrist or something.
I just hope this society dont see him as the bad guy he was the true victim in all of this.He was force to do this.He didnt really wanted to harm his brother its just that his brother pushed him to far.

The whale hunting issue has been around for years, its nothing new. Japan always tries to get its way with us on that.
Too bad.
If they actually do increase their whale poaching, I hope our government grows some balls and sends a frigate or two.

Japan has been fighting with a big problem of juvenile delincuency from about 10 years ago, specially in violent crimes, but just like in mexico gobernment covers most of it

  Even so...  
I felt a lot safer walking around Hokkaido, Nara, and Nagoya than I would ever feel walking around Huston, New York and New Orleans.

  Much less violent..  
Than the US at any rate.

Violence in Japan is growing, but to put it into perpective, the majority of homicides in Japan make the national news. They have about 1.3 homicides per 100k. With a population of 128 million, that's some 1664 murders a year (4.5 per day).

The US, in perspective, has an 8.2 per 100k homicide rate, which works out to 24,250 homicides a year (66.4 a day)

Even if you standardize the populations, the US has a homicide rate 6.3 times greater than Japan
