They finally arrested that American streamer who goes around harrassing people

What were they doing?

Yelling at people on a train about how he was going to Hiroshima them, blasting music, being innappropriate with passersby, etc. Basically being intentionally controversial in an attempt to piss people off and muster attention. And this is over the course of weeks.

I wonder what kind of sentence that will land him.

I like Gundam Versus. Imported those games on PSP and other systems. But every arcade is just Gundam Versus and rhythm games. Once in a while I see a Jojo game that more or less looks like Gundam Versus. On the off chance thereís an arcade with old machines, itís Tetris and a bevy of strip mahjong games. If I havenít learned mahjong across the 10+ RGG games, I never will.

An interesting counter-tactic that Japanese Twitter posters were using against this guy, which I found via a video on the topic, was repeatedly saying his full IRL name out loud when encountering him which he didn't like and it's claimed he'd censor the audio (idk how that'd work for livestreams).

Apparently there have been some copycat streamers doing similarly stupid stunts. Maybe it'll die down after the arrest.

The first one I remember hearing of was the British kid 'Mizzy' who would wander into random people's houses or jump on people/their cars and post it on TikTok, and then of course he tried playing the race card (good luck trying that in Japan though...)

It won't die down after the arrest this is just something we'll have to live with from now on. There's even a name for it- Cloutrage. As in clout + outrage.

It's Johnny Somali.  He got arrested for trespassing-

I never heard of the guy until recently when this video of him and his camerman getting punched started making the rounds.

That's not what I call him.

:patel

Ismael Ramsey Khalid. And he's not even from Somalia, he's from Nigeria. But I guess "Johnny Nigeri" sounds a bit...

Heís an American, sadly, from what I read.

Iím happy he got punched. Camerman too.  Fuck Ďem.

They were trespassing on a construction site, got caught. The police were exceedingly patient with previous altercations. I hope they werenít this time. Japan has a close to 99% conviction rate, and they can be detained for just over 3 weeks while questioned, and no lawyers during that time.

Fucked around, found out.

Iíve read a number of articles about how cruel the judicial system can be. And somehow two recent video games based around it. In this instance, think Iím for setting a harsh example to deter others.

Weather finally turned reasonable. Was able to break out a hoodie for the first time since May.

Seasonal matsutake mushrooms are being sold everywhere, but they're all from China and the local fear of their produce has seeped into me over the 2 decades I've lived here.

Happy to sleep under the covers again.

Yesterday was the first day I thought about wearing a jacket. Unprecedented!

Also, update on the internet speeds. Itís been dwarfed again. Think I said fast.com was hitting 600mb/s at a cafe. Already nearly 3x my home connection. Where Iím at, with an ethernet connection, itís hitting a ridiculous 1.2gb/s. I didnít think that was possible. Downloading a file is quicker than transferring from my 5400rpm external hdd.

Really amazing how the second it gets to a comfortable temperature, they crank up the thermostat on trains and all indoor spaces. Aging population and all that. I get it.

Itís the one thing I dislike about flying JAL. They keep the cabin toasty.
