Official found dead, head covered with plastic bag after measuring radiation in Tokyo park

According to a Japanese news outlet, Iza, on July 1st, 2011 63-year-old Mr. Takashi Kabayama was found dead with a plastic bag over his head in his home office.

Kabayama was a member of the Tokyo Metropolitan Assembly for the Liberal Democratic Party and had been measuring radiation in an assortment of locations throughout Tokyo. He would then upload his findings to his blog for the world to read, and on the day before he died (June 30, 2011) he measured 0.25 microSv/h in Mizumoto Park in the Katsushika ward located in Tokyo.

Fukushima Diary reported on February 22, 2012 via Gendai that ludicrously high levels of cesium contamination were discovered, also in Mizumoto Park. These levels were so high that they “turned out to be the same level of [the] ‘off-limits zone’ in Chernobyl.”

It is strange that this hasn’t been brought to the public’s attention sooner, because the fact that he was found at 3 AM July 1, 2011, meaning just a short while after he posted his update, is quite unusual.

Why would someone be taking radiation readings and updating their website the day that they were planning to kill themselves?

According to Fukushima Diary, none of his blog posts suggested that he might be suicidal and “he sounded motivated to measure around Tokyo,” something which hardly seems befitting of someone on the verge of taking their own life.

This is not the only anti-nuclear official who has died recently. In fact, it was reported on January 3, 2012 that 64-year-old Uemura Yasuhiro, town councilor of Kowaura Minamiise Machi Mie was found dead in his car with a shotgun wound to the chest.

Yasuhiro was reportedly taking his shotgun to his farm to keep away crows. Police thought it was suicide or a gun accident, even though the shotgun was reportedly placed outside of the car.

He was an outspoken opponent of the construction of the Ashihama nuclear plant of Chubu Electric Power, and after the Fukushima incident he began traveling around Japan lecturing about the dangers of nuclear power.

If only one official who came out against the horrors of Fukushima had perished in mysterious circumstances I would be more ready to discount the possibility of foul play.

However, when multiple bodies start piling up, all of which are connected to bringing the dangers of nuclear power into the sphere of public debate, I have to start wondering.

I don’t know how it is in Japan, but here in the United States we have what I call a “dual justice system” which treats certain sectors of society completely different than others.

On one side there is the ludicrously wealthy along with police, most politicians, most so-called officials, etc. and on the other side is the rest of us.

This allows for police to literally get away with murdering innocent tourists and brutally assault elderly people (with dementia no less) for no apparent reason only to get a written reprimand among other horrors.

Hopefully Japan is a little different and proper investigations into these mysterious incidents can be launched.

Wow, his mysteriously suspicious cause of death
happened almost nine months ago.
The illuminati coverup of the actual levels/amount of radiation realeased by the Fukushima nuclear plant has been revealed.
Wow, I'm stunned by the immediacy and timely posting of this article.

Lets hope that now this is out in the open, people will step up and take his place and start publishing radiation readings. This would return the message that killing honest people will be met with more of what they are trying to suppress.

Probably just like the "New York Madame" who was a 9/11 witness who declared in a live broadcast interview when asked about other 9/11 witnesses that were turning up dead from apparent "suicide" that "I have no intentions of killing myself what so ever!" Then turned up dead a few days later of apparent suicide? With no investigation?

Ha found it...Deborah Palfry the dc madam. Just like her. Seems a lot of these folks turn up dead from the "suicide virus". Just for the record, I have no intention of killing myself!

Do not count on any honesty from our NRC, EPA or NOAA when it comes to giving us readings of radiation in our air, water, soil or our bodies. All standards in this country for ionizing radiation are off by a factor of 100 to 1000 times depending on which isotope you are measuring. The US public was censored by Ronnie "The Reptilian" Reagan from giving testimony regarding the re-rating of the standards back in the '80s. Citizens rights to action have been hampered by the very agencies designed to protect US, sound familiar?. This is what happens when governments go to bed with corporate criminals; machines first, people second. If you live within 300 miles of a commercial reactor you are too close and it gets worse the closer you are to the facility. All negative health conditions are exacerbated by the nuclear fuel cycle. Your immune system is your only defense; the human body is capable of selective uptake when talking of mineral absorption; this means if you can eat organic, non-contaminated fresh fruit and vegetables your body will change out the radioactive minerals for the safer ones. Love to all!

This was done by a fool.

Anonymous said... it happens all over the world, here is a official in the US who was murdered. If not for the bravery of some former employees the truth would never be known

I am a japanese mother in Tokyo. I often see the deletion of important datas and information leaks about radiation on twitter and Youtube once somebody pastes it. Most shocking thing was not censorship but that Fukushima elementary teachers forced children to take off their masks and eat local food to show their patriotism. I dont know why teachers are so conservative and are at the side of the government. Japan is far from a democratic country now. But we know that we have to protes. Please focus on March 11th demonstration in Tokyo.
