According to reports from Mexico,Juan Luis Lagunas Rosales (17), a popular YouTuber who posted a video to insult a drug cartel boss, was murdered in Central Jalisco.
This boy was famous as a YouTuber, but it seems to me that he insulted untouchable person. That’s big mistake. He got 15 bullets into the body.
In Mexico number of murder cases this year has already reached to annual high of 20,101 in only 11 months from January to November. “Oh,scary”.
Meanwhile, a situation of “Oh,scary”. also occurred to a young Youtuber in Japan.

On Dec. 25, Shizuoka prefectural police announced that they arrested a woman of temporary employee (29) who lives in Ichikawa-shi, Chiba prefecture, on suspicion of violating the stalker regulation law and invasion of the residence.
According to the announcement, the woman was suspected of invading the man’s house in the central part of Shizuoka prefecture at 4:15 am on Xmas day, despite being ordered not approaching him based on the law before.
Well, if someone get into my house after 4:00 am, I will be scary. But the extent of fear is very different from Mexico. As I read the article, it seems that this woman has been acting as a stalker many times, so the victim may have been acquainted with her.
Well, anyway, I wonder if she was a big fan of him to have been traveling long way from Chiba to Shizuoka on Xmas day.
For not only YouTuber but also famous people, this kind of risk is always with them. Even with care, it is difficult to manage the risk perfectly.
But I am glad that second boy was born in Japan where he wasn’t murdered.
