Can someone explain me why modern 2006 Japan has a guilty until proven innocent law
The guy literally didn't kill his mom and the police still puts him under arrest
Makes it easier.
The tradeoff is a much smoother justice system, but it's way too easy to frame people and lots of innocents go to jail.
But an approach is that you'd have to be really unlucky to be framed so we don't need unlucky people on the streets.
To be fair, he did suspiciously run away from them at the scene of the crime instead of going in for questioning.
Of course with their track record from what happened in his childhood, I guess I can't really blame him.
You're almost as much of a shut-in as the author
You don't have to be guilty of a crime to be arrested. You are arrested on suspicion when the police can demonstrate that they have a need to question you for an opngoing investigation, or can demonstrate that they've collected enough evidence to build a case against you. You defend your innocence on trial afterwards, but prior to that you can be arrested and detained for considerable periods of time while you await trial.

Yes, because everyone arrested for a crime committed it. What the fuck are you even talking about? Also, lay off on the stupid live-action memes.
It seemed dumb that they arrested him for murder rather than for being under suspicion of murder, though my knowledge is just from American dramas so I have no idea what they should say.
It's also a statistic showing only cases which are confirmed homicides. Unsolved cases aren't reported and only convictions are, which means each nation's yearly confirmed homicide rate statistic is limited to the speed in which their legal system actually processes homicide cases. What these statistics tend to actually indicate, in reality, is how quickly each nation's court system processes homicide cases and how competent their police forces are.
Japan is notorious for the sluggishness of their court system, the absurdly high standards in order for a case to be tried in court (which means fewer arrests ever make it to court) and the general incompetence of their metropolitan police. Their reported homicide rate is low because they try fewer homicides every year, and what the census reports don't tell you is the staggering number of unsolved murders and deaths by "suicide" or "natural causes."
that would actually make it worst for the US than Japan
the drop in crime for Japan is related to shifting age demographics, peak offender age is the youth population, which is shrinking
It's how national census work. They call it "homicides" for the sake of brevity but what they really mean is "convicted homicides." Even if it's obvious to everyone involved that the victim was murdered, and there's incontrovertible forensic evidence confirming that the victim was murdered, it's not counted because that's not what's being counted. If someone isn't convicted of homicide and sentenced in a court, it doesn't appear on that statistic.
If we're talking suicides here the rate isnt hugely higher than the united states in Japan. It's 12 per 100k vs 18 per 100k.
If we want to get real here >>137382527 is actually full of shit, if we look at actual statistics we see the United states is at 3.8 and Japan at 0.3.
So their intentional deaths are just spread a little differently.
That being said, the mortality rate difference between Japan and the united states is only 1% in favor of Japan.
I will say this though, if you look at specific states where guns are overly prevalent you'll find a much higher occurrence of intentional homicide. Texas for example seems to be a murder capital just behind California.
