Schoolboy Boils Homeless “I Should Have Just Stoned Him”


A boy who grew bored of stoning a homeless man instead opted to scald him with boiling water as he slept, saying it was “fun” watching his reaction.


The victim of the attack was a visually and speech impaired 67-year-old homeless man, and apparently made the Chiyoda park his home, by some accounts helping to keep it clean.

The boy, a third year middle schooler from Chiba, had apparently taken up throwing stones at the homeless man a week before the attack – “It was fun watching his reaction… it soon escalated though.”

Escalate it did – his altercations with the man continued and he hatched the plan of using hot water on the man.


He filled a juice carton with boiling water provided at a nearby convenience store (for instant noodles and similar), and then went to the homeless man, who was sleeping on a bench in the park, and threw the boiling water on his upper body.

The attack left the homeless man with severe scalding on his neck and shoulders.

The boy was less than remorseful:

“I went too far. I should have just stuck to throwing rocks at him. I did it as it was fun watching his  reaction.”

Police charged him with assault.

Reportedly the boy was accompanied by a gang of 7 classmates who looked on from a distance – they have not been charged.

Japan has few laws against vagrancy, and homeless and piles of their belongings can be seen (and often smelt) in most central Tokyo localities – in many cases rather than tackle the problem directly, authorities attempt to indirectly mitigate it by introducing “anti-homeless” street furniture, chiefly in the form of uncomfortable and oddly shaped public seating.

This can be seen in the photos above (note the armrest in the middle of the bench, to discourage people from lying on it) – it does not seem to have been very effective in dissuading the man in question from making the park his home, however.

    My dad, a former policeman, once told me this.

    "Doesn't matter where you are. As long as there are human beings, you can always find things that you'll never know a human could pull off."

    I believe him, a former APB officer. Patrol units are usually the first ones to check a crime site after someone calls the station, which then radios these suckers to check it out. They're like the first to see everything that's sick about mankind in a 'peaceful' time.

    Oh, and those making a comment about Japan needing to be nuked again? Maybe you Americans need to get vaporized by nuclear fireball. I mean, your country gave birth to Ted Bundy and Ed Gein.

    Without guidance this boy can grow up a sadist. If he can do it to a 67 year old homeless man what's stopping him hurting other people? I did pranks on my grandma when I was a kid but those were playful pranks no physical harm. This kid is a whole different level.

That kid is going to be so fucked up when he is older. and what bothers me the most is his mom and dad are probably stupid too probably said dumb things like " it was just some homeless guy. disgusting" D: Some homeless people are cool if you get to know them. And he was keeping it clean why couldn't people just be nice to him.

    Seriously WTF is wrong with some people?
    The homeless man was going blind and had trouble speaking. The man even kept the park clean. This homeless man does not come off as some lunatic with mental issues, the kid however should be looked at. He did this to see his reaction?!?!

    This kid clearly does not value the life of all (innocent) human beings equally (at least remotely). I would like to know what lead to this kid being so fucked up

    Anti vagrancy laws are not a solution as that's just sweeping the problem under the rug.
    They tried such laws in some US cities and it was a complete failure.
    It just ties up police resources,wastes the city's money and simply moves the problem to a new location.
    Instead they need to implement shelters and rehabilitation programs for homeless people.

    Killing them is counterproductive. It's society that raises criminals - therefore for the 'failures' to be killed is hypocritical at best.

    We could just as well kill 99.9999% of the world's population so that only the purest saints would be left alive, but then what would be the point of having a 'society' in the first place?

    Rather than being lenient, having him undergo therapy is one of the best ways of preventing him from harming people later on. Sending him to a prison will simply ensure that he'll be more careful not to get caught next time; it would be a good choice only if high-quality therapy isn't available.

    The whole old-age vs new-age issue in Japan is really sad considering there was a day when the elderly were treated better than this. As for treatment of homeless in general, it has always been pretty bad in Japan apparently, especially the way they try to segregate homeless like they're animals instead of trying to reform or put them at a proper housing.

    I agree with the people advocating for that kid to be boiled alive, but this problem goes down to the social level and in the ugly dark corners of Japanese society. And this level of class segregation and maltreatment of homeless might be one of the biggest civil issue Japan faces today.

    lol, here in the USA, politicians only care about their own political agendas and their own benefit. shit never gets done thanks to the fact that its hard to find a politician who actually does what he/she thinks will truly benefit the people the most, nor would you find many that actually look at the big picture.
    and about eye for an eye, some people are unable to understand what they do unless it is done to them, commonly referred to as sociopaths, they are becoming more and more common these days...
    well at least if such a thing were to take place, where intentional massive douchebaggery is met with stiff punishment, at least thats one way of keeping population in check, and to clean up the murky gene pool...

    While taking care of the homeless is a noble deed, implementation, funding and public acceptance is one hell of a challenge.

    I'd doubt a large percent of a population would help out their poorer kind, especially if they are having a hard time surviving themselves.

    I agree. Places like Boston and Louisiana have some of the most overt cases of a government-run segregation of demographics (let's face it: Whites/Asians vs Hispanic/Black) and such. I'm not saying it isn't ugly elsewhere in the world, though places like Belgium makes a fun sport out of hating the other half.

    If anything though, I still kind of see where those policy makers are coming from: This is not an easy issue to solve and segregating, at first, is a temporary fix, but mostly for the 'better half'. Now only if governments around the world realize that the poor MUST be taken care of and people in general has a human right to a job, career and a living, things could get better down the road. Eventually, all nations will have to face this fact or otherwise fall to a yet another bout of insurrections like in the early 1900's where monarchies fell left and right in Europe and helped create World Wars in the process.

    The japanese need a new hobby, I think assaulting the homeless, incest and rape are very passe. Try knitting.

    Dear Japan,

    "We regret nuking your country. We went too far. We should have just stuck to firebombing Tokyo. We did it as it was fun watching your country burn.”

    I have got to say that as an American what you just wrote makes me sick. There should be no regret. We did not go too far. If anything Japan should thank us. If the nukes were not dropped then many many more lives would have been lost. America would have taken the mainland and then where would Japan be?

    I think Japan doesn't have to thank America for murdering their people efficiently.

    And neither should Americans be "stoned" for what they did. It is "WAR" you know. Its either them or the world. Casualties are expected.

    Just think of it as another lesson in history.
