Many of us have undoubtedly at one point or another wished ill for our employers. Such was the case for a twenty-nine year old Elementary teacher in Yokohama’s Tsurumi-ku. This teacher took out his frustrations by writing blogs on the Internet. In said blogs the teacher stated that he wanted to kill the Vice-Principal of his school. He also stated, ”If a teacher is murdered, it will be me who’s responsible, for certain.”
The information was uncovered by prefectural authorities and handed over to municipal government officials. When the teacher was questioned he was distraught by everything saying, “I wrote feelings that I had no way of expressing. I had absolutely no intention of killing anyone.” Though blogging is not a crime the teacher was fired using regulations from the National Personnel Authority. This should teach us all a lesson, be careful what you write on the Internet you never know who may read it.
