A 39-year-old construction worker was arrested on Sunday night for allegedly throwing his own feces at women from a minibike in two separate incidents, police said Monday. According to police, the man turned himself in after the second attack in Settsu, Osaka Prefecture.

The man, identified as Tatsuya Moriguchi, allegedly committed a similar assault on Aug 3. He was quoted by police as saying he did it because he felt frustrated after things started going badly at work.

What is it with the 'I was angry/frustrated at work' excuse that comes up in Japanese crimes all the time???

chimping is not a stress relief... try something else...

I heard of "shit hitting the fan" but this is ridiculous. Only in the Zoo you see this happening with the Monkeys/Gorillas but I guess you can now classify Japan as being in this category.

"I was frustrated..." what a load of crap. he should be put in a room for about a month with no toilet and only prunes to eat.

what exactly is a "minibike"?, a step thru 50cc scooter? a compact bicycle with small wheels? JT please desist from using Japlish.

this sounds bizarre. Did he do it on his own accord, e.g, did he throw his poo, and then walked to the cop shop by himself, or did the victim drag him there, or yell at him or publicly shame him?

how exactly did he prepare the feces before hurling it? did he bring it from home, produce it on the spot?

C'mon JT, Details!

In the U.S., a minibike is a small-engined (usually a lawn mower engine)motorized two-wheeler using a centrifical clutch. Don't know if that's what they're talking about in the article, but the word most definitely is NOT "Japlish".

Japan's going to have to start building more prisons.

Did he throw it barehanded, or wrap it up in tissue?

Details, details. He probably used a slingshot.

Brilliant!

I guess this frustrated man really likes to shoot the sh*t. I mean to actually soil your own hands to throw it at someone really defies logic. Oh yeah but this is Japan where logic is a foreign concept.

No outlet for frustrations at work, so shit in a tissue (we hope) and then throw it at random women. Oh, and then turn yourself in to the cops. Japanese "logic" at its best.

EXACTLY!!!!!!!!!!

no problem with minibike. Glad this pooh thrower is of the streets.

All that wasted talent, no wonder he was frustrated. If he managed to squeeze one out while riding an undersized motorcycle at speed and then hit a moving target with it, shouldn't his focus, flexibility and coordination be rewarded with a job in the JSDF or similar?

I knew gorillas and monkeys did this...usually when people tease them at the zoo... had no idea the custom extended beyond that.

Using the child porn excuser logic, we now need to produce mangas about throwing keek, to stop men like this doing ti in real life.

All these people so tightly wound up in Japan... they've really got to find PRODUCTIVE ways to let of steam, not throw what comes out of their system at others. At least he's not killing his mother for hiding the remote, or bashing some guy's head in with a bat, or stabbing his mother, or anything else that happened today or yesterday in this going-to-hell-quick nation.

And anyway, isn't the guy just going to get even more frustrated if he misses?

I'm gonna wash that man right out of my hair...I'm gonna wash that man...

Boy can you imagine the shock for those poor women - here you are walking along and then thwack or squish. Just the thought is a real gross out...After all my years in Japan, people here never cease to amaze me.

AS you do....

I guess the shit has finally hit the spoke -not only are people talking the shit, but now they are throwing it also. An effect of the recession and I hope a signal of the bottoming of this difficult time for the thrower and especially surprised receiver.

Well, some say that we have evolved monkeys... Just a little de-evolution. lol

I hate feces to pieces...

he could "go again" to provide enough ammunition for his second victim?

disgusting.

The only sh*t thrower I knew of was Gigi Allen (for those of you who know late 80s and early 90s punk) and I'm pretty sure this guy wasn't emulating him. Seriously only the insane throw feces at people. gobig: thanks for the laught that was the funniest thing I've read in a while.

"He was quoted by police as saying he did it because he felt frustrated after things started going badly at work."

But why is the "random" target always women and children?

"Using the child porn excuser logic, we now need to produce mangas about throwing keek, to stop men like this doing ti in real life."

I don't think we should even joke about this. It is Japan after all, probably already been done...

As usual the J-imagination runs wild when it comes to crime in Japan. Gotta love it, unless you are the target.

But I often feel like this is what happens in my meetings in Japan.

Well if you talk the talk I guess you can walk the walk.

Hmmmm, Japanese logic if ever i saw it.

Problem: I`m having a hard time at work.

Solution: I will throw my own faeces at female complete strangers. That`ll fix the situation.

Or,

Problem: i feel miserable about work

Solution: i will make others feel miserable

HAHAHAHAHA .... hilarious!!! haven't heard that for sometime.

Or,

Problem: No matter what I feel.

Solution: It will be manly, to take out on girls/women.

blink

Wow.

My question is, he did it not only multiple times, but across multiple DAYS? August 3rd, and now this? HOW was he not arrested earlier? SOMEONE must have gotten a look at him and given the cops something to look for. Yes, yes, I know -- it's the Jcops. But come on!
