Mistreated Pets Know Where to Bite

Leadership in both Japan & South Korea are in trouble.

The case of Korea's former President Park Geun-hye seems the worse: she was impeached, suspended as President, and forced out of office. After serving over four years as the 11th President of the Republic of Korea, Park, aged 65, is now under arrest and being held in pre-trial detention as inmate 503, living in a relatively-luxurious cell (link) barely bigger than a closet. She's reportedly miserable.

But as President for over four years & from a wealthy political family, Park should know a lot of dirt, and must have hidden assets. Taunting & total humiliation are dangerous -- she can damage former allies....

Japan's Prime Minister Abe & his wife Akie are similarly at risk. They now claim minimal support for right-wing militaristic Moritomo Gakuen, but Yasunori Kagoike, ultranationalist operator of the children's educational foundation, claims otherwise. He's personally been backed against the wall, and his organization is facing bankruptcy. It's a formulae for trouble.
