15 Comments

A 62-year-old teacher and operator of a cram school in Nara City has been arrested for using dog collars to restrain one of his students, a young girl in her teens, last November.

According to police, the incident occurred on Nov 7 between 1 p.m. and 4:30 p.m., Fuji TV reported. Police said Koji Ito was giving the teenager one-on-one tutoring at his cram school when he asked her to put the dog collars on her neck and both ankles. The girl was restrained for more than three hours. Police said that Ito had tied leashes to the collars.

The incident came to light after the girl and her mother visited the police station three days after the confinement on Nov 20.

Police said Ito has admitted to the charge but did not say why he did it.

I would love to know why he did it. I hope there is a follow up on this.

I just can't imagine the justification for this.

Heck, I couldn't even imagine thinking of this as an idea to do with a student.

Why, just WHY??

It does not matter why, it is still abusive and is illegal. And people wonder why my wife and I do send our kids to these cell blocks of institutional bullying.

In the US, I have seen some parents use kid leashes. Seriously. Through they are usually strapped around the waist, not the neck.

Another sick and depraved individual who should never be allowed within 100 meters of any child. Let alone teach them. I would absolutely understand it if the father of the poor abused child tracked the teacher down at the school and knocked him senseless.

Please, lock this Ito animal up for 15 years non-parole.

I used a harness and leash with both my kids when they were little. They were both skilled escape artists, and it helped keep them safe & out of traffic.

My daughter also used one with each of her kids when they were toddlers.

Indoors, though? And on a teenager?

No.

Sounds like a control freak, is this a power struggle that's going off in his head?

real disgusting, he's trying to target that school for another sex industry field, dumb idiot, he must've been consumed by pornography, that's why he did it and this is probably going to have a bad influence on young teen girls, which japan needs to fix as well

Because he's an animal, that's why. And what will happen to him? At worst, he'll have to close his school. He should be treated in kind -- a collar put on him as he's walked down the hall way to a cell.
