"footage from about 250 security cameras "

OMG.

“This mentioning of foreigners and their nationality every time there is an incident is growing a bit stale.”

Funny, I don’t recall similar comments when an article is about a Japanese who was arrested for committing a crime overseas. No one seems bothered that their nationality is mentioned. In this case what would be the motive for not mentioning the suspects include French and Belgians, thereby leaving the impression they are all Japanese?

According to other news sources, the driver stated that after he saw that there was no way to exit the scene, he initially invited people to dance on the bed of his truck. He then said he fled when people started kicking and “violently shaking” his truck and he feared for his safety.

"footage from about 250 security cameras "

This figure is probabaly not only the Shibuya Center-gai cameras, but includes the roadside, konbini, train station, etc... cams that the investigators used to track them down.

Not to mention all the Twitter/Instagram/Facebook videos.

The police believe a total of 15 people, including French and Belgian nationals,

Always ze French and their rioting. I wonder how they could figure out their nationalities.

Get tough on destructive behavior so that everyone else can have a good time.

Actually, the ones who did it and then started doing the U.S.A. dance deserve a longer sentence/bigger fine lol

most likely by matching the video/phographic evidence with the immigration passport scans by facial recognition.

Even if no jail time, at least give a fine substantial enough to stop people from damaging property next year if this event continues.

Daniel Donaldson - "footage from about 250 security cameras” OMG!

The average person is on security camera upwards of 40 times a day.

This mentioning of foreigners and their nationality every time there is an incident is growing a bit stale.

How do they know they were French AND Belgian nationals? Were they wearing flags of their countries or were they flashing their passports in front of the electronic police men (security cameras)?

As previously mentioned, most likely facial recognition software that's "secretly" tracking all of us. Their faces were captured the moment they got off the plane, along with all their other personal info.

So, authorities are currently wetting the bed about halloween in Shibuya, however, each year at certain matsuris people die but shoulders are shrugged because it's 'our culture'? 

Really? Please tell me which matsuris involve people flipping over cars as the drivers flee.

Maybe they were speaking their language? Maybe people who had been with them knew their nationality? Why is everything a conspiracy?

300,000 people gathered for a good time, 19 people arrested. That's pretty cool, does that 19 people include the 15 involved with the mini truck incident? Who's driver should be charged with stupidity, really trying to drive through 300,000 people having a party? I know it's Japan but I've seen more violence and destruction and litter at the local Summer Festival events. And there weren't 300,000 people there. It's not such a big deal get the lads to buy him a new toy truck.

The police should get out that truck with the large display they had for the world cup that displayed messages such as "calm down". It was meant to control foreign hooligans, but it might work on the local too.

YES those cameras you see everywhere can do facial ID so they always know who you are and where you are. It's an ez database search to find criminals

You are mixing crimes (intentionally damaging property) and accidents. Reckless driving and speed racing are two different things.

Seems an overreaction to parade them on national tv this morning.
