For the life of me I can't understand upskirting. I'm a straight, heterosexual guy who admires the way women look but I still don't get the charge of looking up a woman's skirt. I must not be hetero enough. (Take this guy to a lesbian bar here in the states and tell them what he did and leave him there. THEN let's see if he's still high on upskirting.)

. I grabbed an upskirt photographer taking photos up the bum of one of my high school students at the train station a few years ago. 

Was there a reason they did not check the camera to verify your claim?

At any level of racists cop, the victim was a Japanese female child, so maybe there was no evidence on the camera to support your accusation?

It is just hard for me to buy into a anecdotal claim without more support to verify or give us a better understanding of the circumstances surrounding the incident.

This is not to say I don't believe you, it is more to say that I hope that a racist cop was not so blinded by racism, that he ignored the fact that a child is being exploited by some podophile.

I really don’t understand this behavior and other weird mental behaviors either. This is so mental.

All smartphones can be used to take an upskirt photo by using the rear-facing camera. Some use other more secretive cameras.

Great for her father. I would have done the same, and I have 3 daughters. They are worth so much to me. My grandpa taught me what to do when I was a kid. He was in the military.

Another loser! He would have ended up in hospital if I caught filming up my daughter's dress.

As the sheriff said in “come hell or high water” “that will simplify things for everyone - except you”

There are the few that are caught and all the rest carrying on more caustiously (camera in the shoes, in the bag...). It will never stop.

Happy that this make the news if no woman /man in Japan was raped...

I can't imagine this perv stopping. If he has the "thrill", it will not disappear after any length of prison or amount of fine.

More monitoring camera to warn pervs that in all public spaces they are watched as a solution (AI to help) ?

That POS is lucky the father had some self-restraint, and only held him there.

Dad has a lot of freaking restraint just holding him until police arrived.

The question is what to do with these sexually repressed misfits who wander around getting a thrill out of filming up girls’ skirts.

The probability that the ones that are caught phone handed, are just the tip of an iceberg of heavy breathing  sexual stimulation by any visual means.

With the advent of next generation smart HD 3D cctv, armed with state of the art facial recognition technology, AI enhanced stealthy spot the warrior world of upskirt creepy crawlies will be banged to rights collars felt on ever increasing numbers.

What is the solution?

Locking them up for their own safety from furious dads?

Separating a few digits from handhelds empowering smartphone use?

held him? What? Oh so tightly?

knock em a few times. Some knees to the groin, head to the walls and grab some pliers and start yanking.

no one is gonna say anything. Heck, maybe some others will be glad to help you out.

Another repressed poor guy, the rules have to be changed. I pity him. Look at the cause, not the effects.

The guy that grabbed him must have been Japanese. I grabbed an upskirt photographer taking photos up the bum of one of my high school students at the train station a few years ago. The goon that took the photos was interviewed and released within half an hour. I was held for two hours having my visa and employer checked. They called the school I worked for, the agency I worked for and my wife. At the end of it a Japanese detective said to me in English, "Stay out of Japan business." They didn't really care about the creep taking upskirt videos. They were more concerned about giving me a hard time. I've witnessed many upskirt creeps in action since and I just ignore it.

Jackpot! 777!

The 3 crime stories today on JT are all the classics: voyeurism, domestic abuse, and political corruption.

Next time, take a video of the upskirt photographer taking his photos, approach him after he gets off the train and then strongly suggest that he should probably purchase the video from you.
