Nishimura Shingō, former member of the Democratic Party expelled for his ethics lapses, convicted felon, right wing militant, history denier and general embarrassment to the Diet, lost his son today. The young man leapt from the veranda of the family home, 20 floors up above the street in the Akasaka House of Representatives Residences.
The young man had only yesterday been diagnosed as severely depressed--but was refused admittance to the psychiatric ward of the hospital on the grounds there were no beds open.
The hospital in question was Keiō University Hospital--yes, the same hospital where last year Matsuoka Toshikatsu's dead body was brought, where Sakai Izumi died under suspicious circumstances and Abe Shinzō was taken after his mysterious breakdown.
Terribly busy place.
Resquiescat in Pacem.
It is getting to the point where one cannot feel contempt toward anybody anymore.
