Where do they find these officers?

Do they recruit from prisons and mental hospitals?

Some many scandals involving police in Japan.

Is the quality of police in Japan so low?

Don't they do checks when recruiting ?

This is just creepy, disturbing and downright gross. You have dirty cops everywhere here and there, cops that have done very bad things, every country has had its share of despicable and deplorable cops, but for some reason, Japanese bad cops do things that transcends all normalcy standards, they just do sick and creepy stuff.

I can't help but have a little chuckle whenever I see a male Japanese police officer.

I am a straight man who absolutely adores woman. They are the best things on earth. But I do not understand the obsession with their underwear. It's just underwear. If the woman is in them then I can see the interest. But underwear is just cloth. It's just laundry. I will never understand guys like this. Along with upskirters they seem pathetic to me. Am I turning gay? Am I not understanding what I should understand? And, yes, a policeman is a much bigger criminal than a guy who is a civilian. He should be heavily punished and discharged.

But can someone please explain to me what I am not getting.

maybe if you morons did an investigation, BEFORE hiring the nut, stuff like this wouldn’t happen.

but then again, the only requirement to become a cop in Japan seems to be that you need just a pulse to be hired.

Just another Friday in Japan, nothing to see here. This probably got the news because the pervert is a Police Officer.

Ever wonder why in 2024 you still need "women only" train cars, or why ALL the phones sold here have loud camera shutter sound impossible to turn off?

Gene above...human sexual desire is an entry point to bizarro world in general.

Woman's panties have an aroma that links into a primitive history cortex area of the brain...maybe...I'm speculating...but aroma is a huge part of sexual desire...just ask any male dog when 3 blocks away a female doggie is in heat .

I had a client in the local court who paid young school boys for their sports sox when they returned from sport.

"tis a weird and wonderful world....the world of aromas.

Seems like a lot of sympathy for Constable Arnold Layne ('s got a strange hobby, collecting clothes...), judging from the voting patterns. It would be interesting to hear from the sympathisers.

I love how you get a down vote for telling the truth, and nothing more from all those butt hurt peons.

Basically all the proof you need that the truth hurts.
