Korean gets one-year jail term for beating Japanese woman
« on: January 12, 2020, 06:50:38 am »
Should he have got a longer jail term or a suspended sentence?

Seems a bit light to me, but on the other hand there is a underlying tendency of the media and the government to promote hatred of all things Japan, so should that be taken into account?

A South Korean man was sentenced to one year in prison on Friday for insulting and beating a Japanese woman in Seoul last August.

The Seoul Western District Court handed out the jail term to the man identified only as Bang.

The 34-year-old Bang is accused of assaulting and hurling insults at the 20-year-old Japanese visitor near the university district of Hongdae in western Seoul around 6 a.m. on Aug. 23.

The man was also found to have pulled the victim's hair and used words disparaging the Japanese during the attack. The Japanese woman suffered a concussion and other injuries requiring two weeks of medical treatment.

The assault case occurred at a time when tensions were running high between South Korea and Japan following Tokyo's export curbs apparently implemented in protest against Korean court rulings on wartime forced labor.

In the previous court hearing, prosecutors demanded a three-year imprisonment for Bang.

The Seoul court dismissed Bang's claim to innocence, saying a relevant video showed the defendant's left knee kicking the Japanese woman's face and that the victim has made consistent remarks on the facial attack.

The court also said Bang should be punished on the criminal charge of inflicting injury, as the victim fell and banged her head on the ground before being rushed to a hospital emergency room later.

"The length of the jail term was determined considering the defendant's failure to make faithful efforts for the recovery of damage and the victim's petition for heavy punishment," the court said. (Yonhap)

I'm surprised there was even a prosecutor.

But did you hear about that one time a foreigner did something bad?

Easier to send this guy to jail for a year than to send the entire country to therapy.

Just the latest example of MayorHaggar's weird take on race. Apparently Trump supporters are racists. But him blaming an entire country for the actions of one person and thinking they all need therapy is somehow okay.  :rolleyes:
