Confessed cannibal walks free
20 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

There are so many things these days to outrage you that viewing something that really ought to be fiction shouldn't be one of them.

In France a Japanese man befriends a local girl and he falls in love with her. In time he kills and east her. Not content with his hideous criminal actions he photographed his deed! So with enough evidence AND a confession, you'd have thought that a conviction and long jail sentence wouldn't have been too difficult. But you'd think wrong! The Japanese man came from a very rich Japanese family - and so begins a story which will horrify all decent people around the world.

Because this killer and admitted cannibal has never stood trial, despite enough evidence, confession and pictorial evidence, in fact he even became a celebrity and write 19 books! Watch the documentary and find out the full details, interesting, frustrating, and annoying.
