187 cases in a country of 120 million? Ok, one case is too much but you gotta think statistically their actual abuse rate is pretty low. I just googled around and here's what I found about the US: "More than 1.25 million, or 1 in every 58 children in the United States, were abused in 2006. More than 771,700 were victims of neglect. Another 44 percent were victims of abuse (553,300 children), including physical abuse (325,000 children), sexual abuse (135,000 children), and emotional abuse (148,500 children)." Let's stop taking pot-shots at Japan.
