34 Comments

A police officer who was arrested for stealing underwear belonging to a female police officer at a police academy in Togane City, Chiba Prefecture, resigned on Wednesday. His supervisor was also disciplined, according to police officials.

Ryosuke Takazato, 33, who was an instructor at the academy, was arrested on Aug 8 for allegedly stealing the underwear of a 24-year-old female cadet after sneaking into a dormitory with a key he had stolen from the office on July 29.

Takazato was initially suspended for six months but decided to quit on Wednesday. Prosecutors have decided not to press charges.

So apparently, burglary and theft (among other things) is not a crime if you are a policeman. If I break into somebody's apartment to steal their panties (just as an example), would I get the same treatment?

He stole a key, broke into someone's quarters, and stole that someone's belongings. Why not press charges?

I wonder how they got a sniff it was him...

He needs to realise his addiction to panties is just a crutch. He can overcome it with a brief period of counseling.

Well that was a brief stint as a cop. Better to let him go than g-string him along on charges.

recidivist no doubt, he'll be t-back in the news

Not to press charges??!! He broke the law that applies to everyone else in Japan!! What gives?

Many underware bandits in this place... Maybe I should open a bar and call it the 'Pan T Bar' and give out a pair with every third drink purchased. LOL

I imagine no charges were pressed because he didn't profit off of his endeavors - kind of like what the judge gave as a reason for the light sentence in the case of the cop who was running a teenage prostitution ring. Seriously though, when are we going to see Robocops replacing the criminal, Keystone cops we're currently paying for?

I hope the cops are as understanding when a "chikan" is turned over to them.

It's just a juvenile prank. Time to lighten up.

kimigano - The police in Japan do, as you say, seem to treat their duties as a juvenile prank.

perhaps asking her for a date would have been better.

Yes the next stage is stalking is that also a juvenile prank? Anyway i ussualy find the person who wear the panties more interesting than the panties itself, it is like getting a present and finding the wrapping more interesting than the present.

Did he at least get to keep them?

Dooby, dooby, doo! I wonder how much time this guy spends at the manga cafes in Akihabara dreaming of his next undy theft. Freak!

this #$"% will never cease to amaze me. I often wonder if the smut sickness and freak show will ever end here... how many dudes do I pass a day do this...?

rock on boys. I mean sniff.

****Would this be considered pretty theft or a frillony?

He had a position of trust, i agree he should be punished severley, he must learn the meaning of suffering.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

The man should receive tough punishment, then Japanesemay see these constant crimes against women must cease.

Ryosuke Takazato, 33, who was an instructor at the academy

Wow so this guy is suppose to show recurits how it's done and he gets caught?...well of course he should quit if he can't do it right.

Also..His supervisor was also disciplined..for what? because his employee can't steal underwear correctly?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

I don't get this underwear fetish at all, but if that's what the guy is up to I'm glad he's not a cop any more!

0 ( +0 / -0 )

I hope he receives the help he needs. You would think this might have showed up while he was still in training or even testing, if they test for any fetishes.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Of course he should be prosecuted, but don't think it will change anything, gusset won't.

This might sound like a trivial matter, after all they're just underwear, right? But if you read a few true-crime stories you'll be surprised at how many serial rapists and killers started out as "petty" criminals caught for stealing panties, masturbating in public or peeping in windows. The problem is that the need to increase the thrill they get from doing those things escalates until they become very dangerous. Very often though they've been let off with nothing but a slap on the wrist for those "minor" crimes because the police arresting don't see the inherant danger in those types of crimes, believe them to be nothing serious and don't understand the psychology of sexual / fetish criminals. As funny as it may be to have a good laugh about it on an anonimous website, it is an issue that ought to be taken more seriously by the people in a position to prevent it.

"Other serial murderers have started their horrible carreers, for instance, and simplified, quite early in their lives as stalkers - also known as "Peeping Toms", escalating into burglary, fetish theft, rape, and eventually murder. By the time the first serious crimes occur, they are generally in their early to mid-twenties."

kimigano: It's just a juvenile prank. Time to lighten up.

I hope you're joking. The man in question is 33 years old, far beyond the age of a juvenile and what he did is a crime not a prank. Perhaps you misunderstand the difference between the two concepts.

Right On ambrosia - this boy is sick and what he did was a crime not a prank...he was an instructor, he's suppose to be setting an example for the people under his instruction (and boy what an example he set...hehehe).

what ya in fer mac? Stealing some pantiloons? Yeah. She was a minor huh? uhhh, no.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

btw, how did he get caught?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

ok guys, every one drop your pants.

I can see his class: Ok you passed you caught me stealing the panties... but how'd you know what crime I was going to test you with? Class: We saw you eyeing up recruit Sato over there so reckoned you'd be into her knickers... and not in the usual way. Anyway it's what we'd do too if we were going to commit crimes. That's why we are becoming cops.

This police officer should be locked up with hard labor, dirty pervert!!!

bushlover -

Sorry I can't 'straighten you out' as I don't know any more about this incident than you do.

Can't imagine what this man was thinking, but he's obviously not fit to be in a position of authority, or to be giving instruction to young people. Chiba Police Force is well rid of him.

Police are missing two charges: 1) theft of colleague's personal property at academy 2) theft of office key What is the female who's stuff was taken going to think? She'd be better off having her own gang to rough up the perpetrator? Add abuse of position to boot. The trainees are getting the message they will be let off easy if they commit a crime and it's against a female. Hey, the whole academy's executives and trainers need a refresher course in: it's the 21st century and idiocy/theft/sexual harassment are not allowed in the police academy.
