7 Slain in Akihabara

Akihabara is the well known as one of the strongest gaming sectors within Tokyo. Shockingly, events today led to the death of 7 people after a man hit several pedestrians with a truck, and allegedly went on a slashing rampage within the area. Ten other individuals were attacked in the district including an officer.

The individual responsible, Tomohiro Kato, was captured and simply said “that is what he wanted to do.” The full story, and details of the event can found at JapanToday’s website here.

    yea man. My heart goes out to the families. I can understand dying for what you believe in, goverment, friends, family, country, human errors, and even mother nature … but because of some random case like this … it’s unacceptable.


Got something to say?
