Okay, so I've only seen the quick look so far. So maybe more of this clicks into place later. But it does honestly seem rather weird how a kid who just pushed a rich guy was convicted of a serious crime and everyone is treating him like he's a famous murderer who just moved to town.
Admittedly, a push can technically be considered an assault and no place is especially friendly to people with criminal records. But is this a cultural thing? Is Japan really that down on kids with records?
