Justice Delayed

I was going to post about the reports that the (alleged) murderers of a young sumo wrestler were finally arrested 7 months after they (allegedly) beat the boy to death, but I've been beaten to it here. Even though arrest nearly always means conviction in Japan, I have less confidence in that outcome in this case than I would if some guy off the street were charged with a similar crime. These sort of sumo scandals are not surprising, nor is the reticence of the "police" to act.
