[Japanese Prison Break: FOLLOW-UP]
If you clicked on this, I assume you’ve already watched the “The Incredible Japanese Prison Break”, and as it turns out, many of you had some lingering questions that needed answering, like:
- Where did all the dirt go?
- How can anyone break handcuffs with their bare hands?
- Why didn’t anyone see the rust after using the miso soup?
- How can you add three more years to a life sentence?
- What exactly was Shiratori’s initial crime that led to his first arrest?
- What happened to him after being released from prison?
- Was this whole video just an ad, bro?
- And, as a bonus, what’s the next Kento Bento video going to be about?
I answer all these questions in the video.

What no one asked was, how could he have gotten the soup on that window to loosen them up, while he had iron handcuffs and could only eat like a dog?

That's not the purpose of adding time to life sentences or multiple life sentences. When you are charged with a crime your sentence is based on that one crime. So take multiple murders for example: If you are accused of murdering 6 people, the state prosecutes you for ALL SIX deaths to make sure that you are found guilty of AT LEAST one of them, but let's just say the jury only finds that there is enough evidence to convict you of murder in two cases, and not the other 4. So now you face 2 life sentences. A few years go by and your lawyer finds a loophole of the law where the police mishandled some evidence, your case is thrown out. Now you still have one life sentence to serve. You find out your mom is dying and escape prison to go see her. Later you are caught, and sent back to prison on your life sentence term with 3 years added for the escape. A year goes by and new evidence surfaces that allows for a retrial of your case. You are still found guilty, but on a lesser charge of manslaughter, which carries a lighter sentence which would allow you to get out on time served, except that you still have to serve the time for your escape. Adding time to life sentences and multiple life sentences are a way of insuring that no matter what, you're going to be in prison for a long time.

Loved the original video ! I don't get the ad complaints. It's a fully animated free 25mn video. You should include the time and resources it took to create your video to put things in perspective.

Maybe the guy can easily break the handcuff because you said it was an extreme winter, so i thinking that the handcuff was frozing the iron a bit and thats what makes the handcuff weakin. But that is just a theory A HANDCUFF THEORY NOTE: Its not that i didn't believe what the video says, im just saying :v

People really didn't know that life sentences are still a set amount of years (depending on place years will vary)... unless it's life without parole... In the US it's 30 years or at least in my state This wasn't an issue or mistake in the video, I just feel it kind of relates: Has anyone heard some people don't realize jail and prison mean different things and they aren't interchangeable. You can't go to jail for the rest of your life- You stay there during your trial and ince your sentenced you go to prison if it's longer than a year and day otherwise you go to the work house- this is fir my state in the US, it may differ slightly for each state and certainly country but jail and prison is still different in all countries. Nor can you get arrested and be brought straight to prison- you start in jail and stay there or out on bail until you're sentenced (even if you're on parole, you still go to jail first then get transferred).
