That has to be the most IDIOTIC reason for someone to get in trouble. Ya, cuz we all know that when you right someone's name in a Death Note book, they instantly DIE by MAGIC!

That is SO retarded. It's not like the Death Note is REAL. It's theripudic to do these things sometimes. We all have people mind we wish were dead, sadly. But really...tht is S beyond stupid. Like Lyzz said, write the name you die just like in the show! Pfft!

This is a real newspaper posting, and was not altered in any means!

Random deaths in Tokyo causing panic in Japan
People in Shibuya held banners of support claiming their hero "Kira" has been punishing the criminals Strange deaths in Tokyo cause a panic outbreak in Japan. Several hundreds of people organized a manifestation today in Shibuya in favor of the recent deaths of criminals. The population has been shocked by a recent leak from the police that dozens of yakuza bosses and other criminals have been dying in the last weeks in undetermined circumstances. The Tokyo police department has confirmed the news and said they are investigating alongside CIA specialists. There have been a few dozen of cases reported to the media. Realitity taking over fiction The young supports of the deaths have been claiming that someone they call "Kira" is responsible and holds the power of God to punish the criminals in Japan. Local newspapers have reported aditional information leaked from the police which talks about hundreds of deaths across several other countries. The deaths are similar to that of a fictional movie recently released in Japan where criminals were killed by means of a book dropped from heaven by creatures they called God of Death. Fiction or reality, many people are scared they might die over minor or falsely judged crimes..

wow. if i were in japan i would be scared to. Just think--and just think say nothing more-- there are things in this world that are known to be unknown to the (wat we think is)the all knowing human mind, but is in fact truely unknown. If there were a real death note, woudl you not be frightened. I think i would be happy, but at that very same moment scared as crap. if there really is a Kira out there i give all honors unto you.

A Death Notebook is ridiculous.
Dillusional people are exactly what they are.
They don't see happiness in the world.
The Japanese are people with impressive imagination, needless to say.
All the same, such a notebook is pure Anti-Christ.

You are the Devil.
Death Note fans think "KIRA" is justice.
Killing is pure sin.
Which means "KIRA" is pure sin.
Enough said.
Educated and intelligent people know this.
Such actions will be taken into account and the doers will be punished.

Your "newspaper posting" is a fraud.
Stop trying to fool people.
Some idiotic people MAY believe you.
I do not wish for this.
I have a record for absolutely EVERY newspaper posting and record that was ever published since 1989. No such posting was released.
If you try to reason out of my Fraud accusation.
You can't.
Because Death Note was an idea that was thought of in 2005, which, of course, is NOT before 1989.
You are dispicable
