Murder Mother Dumps 3-Year-Old for Dumping Console


A couple is facing murder charges for dumping a 3-year-old in a garbage bag to punish the infant for putting their console in a bin.

3-year-old Shizuku lived with his 26-year-old mother and his mother’s 20-year-old boyfriend at their Osaka apartment, the couple having recently met in February using an online dating site.


The mother explains that her son’s death was an accident:

“He put our precious game console in the bin, so to discipline him I wanted to make him understand if he did that I’d throw him away, by putting him in a garbage bag.”

Shizuku managed to get out of the bag, and his mother’s boyfriend helpfully offered to shove him back in it, using tape to to tie him up and prevent his escape.

This time the infant did not survive, suffocating in the bag.

The mother summoned an ambulance after having left the child in the bag in another room for 20 minutes, having realised he had stopped crying.

A legally-required autopsy soon uncovered the cause of death, and police arrested the couple soon after. Both are facing murder charges.

The mother was also found to have made various unkind comments about her child online, saying such things as “If he fell off the veranda he’d die, wouldn’t he? If he died I don’t think I’d cry.”

    I'm guessing, based on her attitude toward him that the kid was the result of an Unwanted Pregnancy and the father ether skipped town or she doesn't know who it is (Because she is a whore). Probably also saw him as a Burden that she would be glad to be rid of.

    Still, she could have given him up for adoption, or unloaded him on her Parents to raise.

    Sick bitch.....i hope she rots

    My first child was a stillborn. It sickens me that "parents" like this just throw their children away. I mean, there are options like adoption.

    I'm curious to know how such things are in Japan. Its entire culture is oriented around family and blood ties, it seems, while America is much more lax on such things being so insurmountable. In fact most people seem like they can't wait to be rid of their parents.

    So I do wonder how adoption is considered over there. One other thing sadly is OUR foster system is tantamount to forming juvenile delinquents unless they're exceedingly lucky. I have a couple friends who have taken in foster children and considered adopting, but in each case the children just have too many problems, and they don't want to wreck their family to deal with them. But in every case it's better than what these idiots did...

    foster homes are in deed a hell hole, but lets also take into consideration what kind of a society that japan REALLY has.

    yes they are more family bound than america, but thats also considering they are the happy model home that you think of.

    lets go if the kid happens to be an under achiever, and i don't mean failure, just not any better than the parents were.

    or lets also go to another one, where a kid becomes socially withdrawn, parents put up with that crap because of society, and wanting to keep up appearances.

    or lets also look at one where the kid decides to put pressure on themselves to the point they snap.

    all in all, i think that the japanese being at home thing is more about appearances that it is about them actually caring. kind of like how the victorian era had manors not because they wanted them, but because it was to keep up appearances.

    i think that on a whole american familys have it better off just because they are more honest with each other.

    To be frank though, adoption issues are pretty damn overblown I find. You will find plenty of in-family strife (I know a ton about it from personal experience) from blood relatives. Also, the reports of adopted children having major problems is too overblown statistically I believe. While it probably isn't a given that you'll receive the love and care of a biological parent from the get-go, stories like this is PROOF that sometimes that bloodline means nothing to some people.

    In Japanese (and in fact, most Eastern Asian nations), the reason why adoptions are looked down upon is that there's so much at stake for blood lineage. The entire idea of families hinged deeply on that and that stigma of adoptions were out there for a lot of people. But after several tragedies like Kobe earthquake of 95 and other natural disasters that resulted in orphans, people gradually opened up to the idea of orphans.

    And I don't think it's any coincidence that you find a lot of orphan characters in anime since late 90's who are there for some dramatic effect but not to the point where they're complete outcasts.

    On the other hand, that in many old drama shows during and before the 80's, the general cultural bias is pretty evident where it was almost a given for the orphan characters to be the trouble maker, the criminals, the problem element of family. Not all shows were like that obviously, but in token, dumb soaps, they always had that element and almost reveled in the 'problem' of orphans and at worst times, even their suffering.

    That said, I don't think Japan is quite as open as a society towards interracial adoptions the way America and many Western nations are though. That's another can of worms.

    But I don't think it's nearly as bad today as it might have been in decades past. Naturally, there's tensions and growing process with adoptions. But then again, sometimes biological parents just doesn't give a damn. That's nothing new either.

    Fucking meme-whore. This is not /b/, stop using any vaguely related posts as an excuse to sprout worn-out lines. 404mage said their first child was stillborn, not that the first child they gave birth to was stillborn: it takes at least two humans (if including invitro, surrogates, and so on) to make a baby, retard.

    I don't wanna BAWWWW on the Internet.

    Just look at the bright side.

    With a whore for a mother like that, he'd probably grow up into a state where he will wish he died while still retaining his innocence. It ain't the nicest way to go, surely. Then again, it's still a whole lot better than to prolong his suffering.

    I've seen people escape that kind of situation. I've seen people who hadn't escaped it but at least had enough awareness of their parents problems to not repeat the worst of them.

    The more I think about it the more I'm horrified by the place where I spent the last few years.

    I suppose you think murdering the kid before he was born is preferable to murdering him much later. Perhaps murdering him at all is the problem. It isn't as if one must choose between two evils. I would have happily raised that kid as my own as would many others. Abortion is for people with no imagination, no concern for the helpless, and no desire to think outside their immediate need for convenience. You disgust me.

    But it's people, like the above poster who are high and mighty and never went through those experiences to think another way, the kind of people who wish to continue the cycle of suffering.

    "If we really wanted to minimize the loss of potential life we should harvest and freeze all the eggs and sperm produced, keeping everyone with a functional uterus constantly pregnant, and spend all research money on artificial uteri so we can make the remaining men and women pregnant ASAP so we can pump out all the stored potential life quicker."
    Please note that for the old-fashioned fertilizations, naturally occurring abortions happen for roughly 3 of every 4 fertilized eggs in the nearest few hours or days on average, which is why it is not rare for couples to take several months before they finally get the female pregnant after beginning the regular attempts to impregnate her.

    I think people put too much value in the "miracle of life" thing. If we really wanted to minimize the loss of potential life we should try to keep all women constantly pregnant. That would probably make our planet collapse under the collective weight of us humans, so having the opportunity to prevent unwanted births isn't really that much worse than wanking and wasting your sperm every day. Not to mention that if all children were actually wanted, the world would also probably be a better place to live in.

    Even if she didn't want it, she should've taken responsibility for it. I'm pretty far from being one of those "abstinence only" types, but if you're going to have sex, even with protection, you better be ready to accept the fact that something may come from it.

    Oops, I mean "sterilize" the woman.

    By the way, is the child a girl or boy? In other news people are talking about a girl. Not that it matters, since every living being getting killed in this kind of way (by your own mother!) is really sad and horrible at the same time.

    A "killing Field" style end for the both of 'em be the appropriate end for such dumb Ass morons I'd say~ They put the kid in a bag- a bag put over their heads would be a fitting end for the both. No one will ever give a shit about such loathsome scum and their names will be forgotten within minutes of their execution.

    THIS is EXACTLY why we need forced sterilization / a minimum intelligence and a license to breed. People like this should have died in the rubber.

    I do not think minimum intelligence is anywhere enough as qualification for the license, because I have met people who are legally mentally handicapped yet who would have made amazing and wonderful parents in comparison to this horrible couple.

    Intelligence has nothing to do with murder.

    Intelligence has everything to do with being able to understand the outcome of your actions, though. I don't think many intelligent people would be interested in going to the pokey for something like this :3

    maybe the child do that because he/she wanted attention. i mean their parent could play the console all day long and ignored this kid.

    She wanted him to understand that she'd throw him away if he threw out a console. Does the stupid woman not realize that at 3 years old a child is not exactly going to make a connection to that, even if you tell them? Much like a dog? Godamn. Besides that though, does she not realize that saying she'd throw him away if he did that make her incredibly guilty? Why are idiots allowed to reproduce >.>
