42-year-old police officer quits after flashing woman in Hokkaido

28 Comments

A 42-year-old male police officer in Asahikawa, Hokkaido, voluntarily resigned after he flashed a woman in her 40s while he was questioning her during an investigation at her apartment, police said Wednesday.

According to police, the officer started making sexually suggestive remarks to the woman while he was questioning her about a case on Oct 16. The woman refused his advances. Her mother spotted the incident and reported the officer to police.

The officer was suspended for three months but voluntarily quit on Wednesday, according to police officials.

A police spokesperson said the officer cannot be accused of public lewdness because he was inside the woman's apartment legally. The officer was quoted as saying, “I got excited when I saw lingerie inside the apartment.”

So there's no law against flashing someone inside a house? What a loophole.

"I've got something you can take down in evidence..." "Do you want to receive some swollen goods, ma'am?"

And other such hilarity. Well done once again police of Japan. You are the bastion of all role models in this country.

I love the legal loophole. So if you can get into their apartment then you can flash whoever you want!

"Excuse me ma'am we're checking for gas leaks in the neighborhood. May I...BOOIIING!!!

P.S. So if the mother didn't see what was happening, the "cop" would have gotten away with it? Speaks volumes about the state of mind of many J-women.

Always keep a flashlight on standby in case of a sudden desire to flash someone.

Yet another policeman succumbs to the monotony and boredome that go with his job. He's human and deserves some understanding. He may have been tired of his job and decided that this was the easiest way to quit. Trying to quit by a more conventional route would mark him for loads of bullying and abuse.

Was it in the kitchen then it is "flash in the pan" Anyway everywoman should have those long rulers nearby (or a long bamboo reed) to slap that thingie when getting flashed, then they have proof.

So this woman is not a member of the public? Maybe they can charge him with pubic lewdness. Mother quote "Officer, is that your incident I spot hanging out of your drawers?"

When asked what this looks like, she replied "A penis, only smaller". Mom did not see it that way.

I think if I was subjected to sexual abuse by a police officer in my own apartment, the last thing I would do is call more cops...

What a sad, sorry little man it is who can't handle the sight of a bit of underwear drying on the line without whipping it out and hoping for the best. God forbid he might be expected to exercise a little self-control once his willy gets hard.

Another day, another keystone in trouble. They need more realistic police dramas on NHK, NTV, and Fuji TV. They miss some great material for episodes with the reality here.

Even if he was there illegally it still would not be public lewdness. But if they would consider it so, then we could just as easily say that since he was there on public business, it is public. There are probably other ways to bust him though. Sexual assault, sexual misconduct, sexual harrassment, etc.

This sort of dereliction of duty should definitely carry some prison time. The man was there on official business for crying out loud. This is one heck of a way to undermine trust in authority.

So any Pizza delivery guy, removal man or whatever could step in to your porch and do an Onsen impersonation and.....nothing?

Are you kidding me? He got excited over lingerie. I do wonder is there are any other women's behind the scene? Sooner or late they will come forward. Is that the reason of his resignation? Throwing away such job so quick is very unusual. Time will tell. On the other hand, please send him for examination with female 'shrink,' decorated in her office with lingerie.

No! The propper way to leave your job is to go out screaming at people, give your boss the finger, and cause the company computer to crash... or lock out the main computer with a hi-def code!

...it's almost like he wanted to get fired :)

The problem here is that the society tries to act so damn conservative that their perverse ideas force its way out. I hope kat wasn’t questioning ole girl about a sexual incident that previously occurred and then he turns around sexually harasses her.

It is a bit weird that the underwear was out and about.

I think i saw this in a movie once, but in the movie, the mom joined in, and, well....

I reckon the copper saw a similar movie and since most Japanese porn stars fat balding middleaged men he probably fancied his chances
