Nothing warrants a man slapping a woman.

Stress.

When my ex in the medical field was beating me for pleasure and I would call the police they told him he could not beat me because I was a foreigner this was many years ago. It is good to see that Japanese women are getting the protection they need and deserve.

sakurasuki - Police protecting civilian from another police?

It remains to be seen whether he is actually prosecuted or punished appropriately. But, it's a good start that wouldn't have even gotten this far in some places.

BigP - Mmm, what warranted the slapping?

A. It wasn't a "slapping". From the article: "Police said she sustained several bruises to her face"

B. Nothing a spouse does warrants being beaten. To think otherwise is pretty effin' horrible.

TokyoOldMan - Stress. It's commonplace.

"Spousal abuse. It's commonplace." There. I fixed it for you.

Mmm, what warranted the slapping?

Likely a serious lack of manhood. A police officer is trained in several forms of martial arts.

Apparently this guy forgot the most important part of any SELF DEFENSE training is to be used only in situations calling for it. "Slapping" one's wife is NOT on of those situations, no matter the reason.

Nothing warrants spousal abuse.

Suggesting that there is clearly shows a misogynistic attitude towards women.

The number 1 sign of a coward, a man who beats his wife.

Wife's know all ya buttons and can exploit them. Chose your partner carefully!

Good advice. Ladies, be careful - chose a man who doesn't express his anger by beating his wife up.

Why? Why do so many men beat their wives? Not only in Japan. But in all countries of the world. And they not only beat and, many kill their wives. Why?

Police are trained to respond to violent actions without the use of violence. Yet this one commits violence against his spouse. He needs to be taken off the force, there's no justifying or excusing this behavior.

Overstressed at work whatever it is you should not put your hand on the women.

Why is it that you ONLY comment on ANY post where there's some type of abuse between a man and woman but NEVER when its the other way around or on any other article?
