Guardian[edit]

Hello, I am the self-proclaimed "guardian" of this article - for the moment at least. I'm working on it right now - creating the foundation for a nice, tight and easy to read article and updating my sources as I'm making progress. I have a tendency to repeat-edit en masse, so please bear with me and refrain from hasty edits just now :) If you can help me by accessing the original court documents in LexisNexis, please let me know - otherwise I think internet articles and the Yoshi foundation homepage cover everything.

Version[edit]

I found an interesting site by a person who claims to have read the LexisNexis records and gives a different version of the story (though a slightly biased one). You might be able to request the original LexisNexis information from him

Time[edit]

One thing that is missing from this article is the time that the boys arrived.

Thesis[edit]

Are you still monitoring this page? I wrote about this topic for my thesis and reviewed all the court transcripts and conducted interview with the Haymakers, the Hattoris, Hattori's classmates, the D.A. Doug Moreau, L. Unglesby representing the Defense, the mayor of Baton Rouge, police officers, a juror and townspeople. I was very fortunate to have the assistance of an attorney in Baton Rouge in accessing all these people. It was a very moving case. I would have to look through old notes for the exact time; however, I know the boys arrived after 8pm and well before 9pm. Additionally, the house numbers were transposed, they were on their way to a Halloween party down the street. I'll add the time when I get ahole of my theisis. Katrina Kernodle-Walsh

Possible miscommunication due to language barrier contributing to the killing[edit]

I learned of this case from one of my psychology textbooks. It said that the victim, upon hearing "FREEZE!" thought the person meant cold (it was a cold October night) so he walked inside to get out of the cold, and got shot dead. I'll try to look for it once I dig out my old Psyc textbook. If it is the same case then I will add that bit of information to the article.--205.250.222.77 23:01, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

I might have heard that. I think this episode may have partly inspired the Homicide episode "Colors"[1], but I'm not sure that's important.--T. Anthony 07:00, 24 June 2007 (UTC)

My Opinion[edit]

I am a gun owner and an opponent of gun control, but I think the shooter in this case should have been locked up for felony manslaughter. The answer isn't gun control, it's a sane legal system.75.75.110.235 07:28, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

Murder?[edit]

I'm confused.. he purposefully used a gun to kill an innocent boy, but he wasn't given a life sentence (or executed)? Why not? I thought murder was punished by life imprisonment or execution.

When a kid walks up and rings your doorbell and you kill him that IS murder, right? I mean surely he didn't ACCIDENTLY point the gun at the kid and pull the trigger? If he did that by accident then I could see him getting off with felony manslaughter, but there's just no way that could have been an accident.. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.53.37.218 (talk) 06:29, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

Not sure if it is murder but it he certainly should be guilty of something. Then again the discussion page is really for improving the article not commenting on the situation.

Bias in the article[edit]

I came to view this page in a roundabout way: A student that I helped here at the college cited the "castle doctrine 'law'" in a gun control paper she was writing, and I eventually looked at this Hattori Article from that page. After reading this Article a few times, I picked up a bias'ed vibe. It feels too much like the author and subsequent editors have a bias toward "favoring" Hattori and attempting to condemn the acts of Rodney Peairs. Even the fact that the Article is entitled "Death of Yoshihiro Hattori" rather than by the case name itself feels bias'ed.

In the law books I would guess it reads something like "Peairs vs. Hattori"? I think some editing needs to be done. The portions of the article that have been flagged "citation needed" alone show bias in my opinion.

--ErikVKing (talk) 00:41, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

On the contrary, I find it very neutral. The article is about the death, the reported details, and all that rekevant events that followed. Hattori vs. Peairs would only be the civil lawsuit. The criminal trial would have been U.S. State of Louisiana vs. Peairs. There were two separate court cases, a criminal trial and a civil lawsuit. Did you read the article to the bottom? The title is very typical of such cases. It can not be called "Murder of..." because murder is a crime, and nobody was convicted of murder. The article is about his death, and the events that occurred because of it. It is not limited to one trial. Perhaps you think the article is not neutral because it does not share your biases. - Boneyard90 (talk) 04:17, 5 December 2013 (UTC)
No. I have no bias whatsoever with this. As far as the title goes, it would be fine if all that was in the article was straight facts - but, in my opinion, it feels too much like a condemnation of Rodney Peairs. Many sections of the article do provide straight facts, but too many areas sound almost like the lawyer for the Hattori's wrote it. Beginning with the first section, where it says "...gregarious teen who played on his high school rugby team and loved fishing." (with no citation I might add). The sentence made me feel sad and begin to feel a wrongdoing occurred, and to hate Mr.Peairs. If this were an article about Yoshihiro Hattori, and not about the incident of his death, then this type of writing would fit. Perhaps I will try to edit the page some day, but if anyone else wants to step in and lend neutrality to the article, please feel free. --ErikVKing (talk) 16:55, 5 December 2013 (UTC)

"Fujio"?[edit]

There are a couple of citations to a "Fujio 2004", but no details as to what the source is. I can't find this source online. Does anyone know anything about it? Curly Turkey 🍁 ¡gobble! 05:21, 25 February 2016 (UTC)
