>>416>Until the jap police decide to say what his motives was, it can be whatever we want it to be.
The Police said that the man was dissatisfied with Shinzo Abe's leadership.
It's probably not right wing terrorism, because they usually just go after random people.
But this is unlikely coming from the left because Abe wasn't in office anymore. (Abe resigned from office in 2020 for health reasons)
"Abenomics" was shit: https://thenextrecession.wordpress.com/2014/10/13/japan-the-failure-of-abenomics/ https://thenextrecession.wordpress.com/2017/01/27/abenomics-an-update/ https://thenextrecession.wordpress.com/2013/02/14/japans-lost-decades-unpacked-and-repacked/
and shooting the guy while he held office might have made some sense as a motive, but 2 years after why bother ?
My guess is a private hitman, hired by either corporate or mafia, which in Japan has a lot of overlap.
