There is little respect for Police in Japan.

Asked a fried once why the Japanese Police is so weak and soft with the locals. They told me, on case they make problems to a powerful man, such as company executives, Yakuza, or in general men with power, they can even loose their jobs, or get demoted, due to the rampant corruption. Just look at all those videos from YouTube or similar where the JP Police is even apologizing to the Yakuza who were fighting in traffic, or just being good dogs and lambs in front of them.
