The recent news from Japan is a kind of entertaining: some anonymous hacker has let the cat out of the bag, stringing the local police along with a series of clues which led them to finding a memory card attached to a cat’s collar.
The hacker in question has sent threats to various places across the country, including schools and a kindergarten, through several computers around Japan. It’s been months that the police were puzzled and failed to track the sources. Indeed, the newspapers claim that Japan’s National Police Agency was caught chasing its tail: at one point, the police went as far as to force so-called confessions from 4 people who appeared to be completely innocent and had nothing to do with the threats.
On New Year’s Day, the newspapers and broadcasters received a set of riddles, apparently meant for the eyes of the authorities. One of the newspapers, the Sankei Shimbun, revealed that the received email offered an invitation to a new game and notified of the existence of a new computer virus. The most interesting thing was that the virus was hidden on a cat somewhere near Tokyo.
The emails contained a number of riddles, which promised the newspapers that they were on to a big scoop. The answers to the riddles appeared to lead towards a mountainside just outside of the city. The police finally found the cat and the memory card attached to it.
Although the authorities are not sure about the purpose behind the messages just yet, they still believe that the original messages were related to the ones which led the police to finding the card carrying cat.

|" the police went as far as to force so-called confessions from 4 people who appeared to be completely innocent and had nothing to do with the threats." after reading stuff like this i wonder why america is so hated but country's that torture people aren't even noticed.In the year 2013 we still have people being tortured and people are talking about a freaking cat...|
|The U.S. tortures people too. They just don't call it that. If they did, it would be against international law.|
The reason the U.S. is so hated is because we ignore our own law that forbids CRUEL AND UNUSUAL PUNISHMENT regardless of it's deemed "torture".
