I’m all about “respecting other cultures”, but when those cultures portray teenage girls the way they do, it’s not exactly a surprise when you get adult men who still have the mental maturity of a twelve-year old.

It seems like a no-brainer to consult with the police and have them stake the place out.

Japan still very much needs National Sex Offender Database. The NPA could start with something simple and built from there, maybe like this:

Suspect: “Obuchi Tomiki”; Age: 24; Occup: no fixed work; Incident: Jan ‘21; location: local park, Adachi ward, Tokyo: M.O./Allegations: SNS Threats, Extortion, Sexual Assault on a child, possession of child pornography with intent to distribute; Charges/Status: currently held iaw ongoing investigation, possible supplemental charges; Disposition: awaiting adjudication - Sat, Jul 3, ‘21.

Just like yesterday, . . . @Paul 6:32pm:

“This activity day by day in Japan, surrounded by perverts! sure he is going to say he was stressed out from working from home for a long time...

”Police quoted him as saying he was stressed out from having to work at home for so long.”

Start executing convicted child molesters and rapists and eventually the problem will be resolved.

Many people ask why so many J men are obsessed with young girls. I have a theory. It has to do with the majority of the Japanese population not allowed to have a relationship during Junior High and High School. They might feel like they've "missed out" on those experiences. Also, because the majority of Japanese men are shy, only the few "bad boys" who have all the confidence, get all the girls. In other words, the majority of the population in Japan is sexually frustrated/deprived (especially males). Solution: 1. Allow students to date 2. Teach boys and girls on how to date and be confident. 3 Learn about safe sex and contraception.

When the system FAILS rape and sexual assault victims, when predators are let out of jail after 6 or 8 months, when victimized little boys and girls are taught to keep quiet, this is what you get.

Japan needs to take a second and harder look at it's justice system and start applying tougher penalties.

If someone is convicted of rape or sexually assault they could face up to 10 to 30 years in prison and in some countries are put to death.

I truly hope that the police that "examine" these photos are female. I understand why some women don't go to the police over certain incidences like perverts taking upskirt photos because how does one know that these male police officers aren't taking long looks at the photos.

Using the internet to groom minors is an extremely serious offense in Australia and carries a minimum jail term of seven years.
