• Interesting, if tragic, situation brewing here in Japan. A senior citizen crashed his car into a crowd in Ikebukuro just recently, killing a young mother and her three-year old child. Interestingly, the police opted not to arrest the driver and let him walk while they did the investigation, going so far as to refuse to release any information about the perpetrator at all. Now it's coming out that the driver was, in fact, a retired bureaucrat with a long history of connections to research and technical institutions that partnered with the Japanese Ministry of Technology, and speculation is running rife that he's getting let off the hook because of his State connections. To make matters worse, official websites hosting pictures of the driver that could be positively connected to eyewitness reports of the Ikebukuro crash are being taken down one after another, and reportedly Japanese Twitter users posting copies or mirrors are getting suspended and/or shadowbanned. This definitely warrants more investigation, and a lot is rumor and speculation at this stage, but it's looking more and more like a coverup every day. Definitely planning to report on this, as well as the Moro/Coinhive situation in the near future.
