Remember laughing when Borat infamously and ridiculously claimed he liked to watch women "make a toilet"?

Never thought it would be an actual thing.

Yuji Hishita, worked for a company doing reconstruction work at the school at the beginning of September,

So his opportunity to put the camera was because he had access to the girls toilets due to his job, just like all the other times we read stories like this, teachers, school directors, maintenance men, etc...

Their jobs/positions granted them access.

Now think how many without such access would love the chance and think how unisex public toilets would open a great big opportunity to people like this and how it would increase the suspect pool by thousands.

In this case the suspect pool was limited to the teachers and workers with access.

But in a unisex public toilet the suspect pool would be every person that has ever used that facility!

Here is an interesting thing, I was a single father raising 2 children one boy one girl in Japan.

I rarely if ever worried if my daughter was out late or late coming home.

In comparison in my home city in Canada considered very safe by north american standards, bothy brother and my sister would constantly worry if their daughters were late coming home or out late.

Cameras in the toilet are the least thing to worry about in other countries,

During 2022, there were a total of 7,328 deaths from opioid overdose in Canada

The USA has an even higher death rate for drug overdoses.

Japan has under 600 per year!

So if the choice is the drugs and crime in other countries or the feaks Putting cameras in toilets in Japan.

Well I for one chose Japan and hope the police catch these guys.

Porn a huge part of the sexual crimes equation, multiplies the problem exponentially...where do you think he got the idea in the first place...

Yeah, if the idea of that is something that would keep you from the country altogether, it's unlikely you would do well in Japan. Probably better that this keeps you away, as you'd find there are other things that can cause discomfort to life that would make you not happy.

Canadian parents are helicopter parents in my experience.

Where ever one goes in this world there are perverts and pedo's like him, There are countless millions of pedophiles in this world. I watched a video recently about the problem in the UK, and they said there was an estimated 600,000 in that country alone. Pedophilia has been practiced since the Greek and Roman times but it is only in recent decades has it it been scorned and condemned as criminal. Mostly people just ignored it.
