First of all, this comment infers no disrespect to Yurika Ochiai. Okay, that's that out of the way.

Secondly, why on Earth (if you were genuinely intending to do so) would you threaten someone with death? Surely you would want to sneak up on them when they least expect it? I have always been fascinated by these kinds of things. Similarly, why do people call in bomb threats? Surely if you have gone to all that trouble to rig a building or some such thing with explosives, you are not going to then give them a ring and say, "I'd get out of there if I were you". Human behaviour sometimes amazes me.
