A 23-year-old man arrested in September for taking a photo up a woman's skirt in Bubaigawara Station, Fuchu, was a trainee police officer, it has been revealed.

According to police, the man -- a trainee at a police academy -- was caught taking the photo with his cell phone on Sept 19, Sankei Shimbun reported. A spokesperson said he was apprehended by station staff before being handed over to police.

The man reportedly confessed to the crime and was fined. Police said the man resigned from his post on the same day.

During questioning, he was quoted by police as saying that taking up-skirt photos is fun and that he couldn't help himself, Sankei reported

Everything fun is either banned or legally made hard to get.

At least he wasn't shoplifting!

What....the keystones didn't train him properly on how to take upskirt photos and stealing panties the right way?

starting a little early.

No career for you! Out!

Panties are obstacles, not something to be coveted. When will man learn?

Again???

Isn't that part of his training?

ROFLMFAO!

hahahahah Keystone doesn't even begin with these fellas!

Shouldn't a cop know right from wrong

Obviously his mentor is a substandard cop. He should have coached the rookie by saying that taking photo's was strictly for forensic science only - and that he enjoys studying the science of law enforcement.

What is it with cops and this type of crime! The way it's going, meeting a cop here on a dark street at night is going to make me feel uneasy rather than assured! Wonder if it's something they put in the kettle at the local Kobans!!!!! Having said that, I have...touch wood....had nothing but good experiences with the police here so far!

He should take up birdwatching!!!(^ー゜)

When are they going to learn? By the way the goose who thumbed down everyone should get a sense of humor.

Of course he is an idiot, but you have to admire his honesty "taking up-skirt photos is fun"...

3 ( +6 / -3 )

Idiot. The perfect opportunity to claim he was conducting research as part of his training and he didnt grab the chance. He should be kicked out for being too stupid to lie!

Samantha Zoe Aso,

It's "knock on wood."

"Touch wood" is.................. something else, another good experience the police would like with you.................

psssht! Here's a secret!

They have a new unit of cops, specialising in chasing all the perverts roaming through Japan. All for the safety of schoolgirls (and adult women) here. Since it takes one to know one, all these young recruits have to go through these steps. They must become perverts as part of their training.

The theft of pants is on the same track. Study the enemy's object of desire. Study the enemy. Divide and conquer. Well, maybe they got it wrong and divided the pants from the girls instead of the pervert from the pants. Beginner's mistakes. Next time, ganbatte.

@Samantha Zoe Aso "What is it with cops and this type of crime!" ....thanks for the comment ...oh and watch out for the clippers and clampers....

@DisillusionedNov. "Isn't that part of his training?" excellent point!

@ratpackNov. "When are they going to learn? By the way the goose who thumbed down everyone should get a sense of humor." EXACTLY as well as the clippers and clampers...

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

They say it takes a thief to catch a thief, so does this rationale apply to perverts? If so, well done station staff for your commitment and experience that led to this guy being caught.

Tokyokawasaki looks like she's ready for the "Camera Squad"!!!Good Gawd Girlee!!! (only funnin'!)I'll never get why these fetishes exist but anything goes in todays world And it's all wide open!

Why take the risk? You can use a 500 yen coin to buy a pair - all in the convenience of a vending machine.

So the guy has his fix taking upskirt photos!! But, dumb enough to get caught in a nation loaded with heavy-duty cam-surveillance.... Amatuer, nothing but an amateur!!....LMAO

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

Well at least he didn't use the typical "I was drunk" excuse

1 ( +3 / -2 )

He sounds like a typical candidate for the local constabulary.

SICKO!!!

-3 ( +2 / -5 )

Who's going to protect the Japanese public from the cops?

-1 ( +1 / -2 )

It's hilarious to see how rampant this is through all sects men in Japan.

Do men seriously get off looking at panty pictures?

lol.....

-1 ( +1 / -2 )

Not me. I do like panties but those are for taking off. :p

As for up-skirt photos most of them there is nothing to see anyway, I am told.

It"S ME

It's "knock on wood."

Only if you speak American. In Britain it's "touch wood".

Hahahahaha.... The Erogigi strike again. I wonder why this people are so addictive to this kind of stupidity. Pornography and XXX videos are all over japan, even in love hotels TV. And still this japanese hentais proliferate.

The man reportedly confessed to the crime and was fined.

huh???

-1 ( +1 / -2 )

we need pictures of the evidence of the alleged crime

0 ( +3 / -3 )

Forgive what may be a dumb question, but why is this a crime? Aren't people free to take pics of whatever they like, as long as they don't touch the girls or lift up their skirts? If a woman sitting across from me on a train has her legs slightly spread apart, would it be a crime if I took a picture? (Don't get me wrong, I'm not into this sort of thing . . . just wondering what the law/crime is.)

-1 ( +3 / -4 )

Why did he resign? Shouldn't he be promoted in the J-cop family?

-1 ( +4 / -5 )

So why all the posts? Didn't all of you post your disgust back in September when the arrest was reported the first time? No?

-5 ( +0 / -5 )

Fadamor -- why don't you answer your own question? Maybe it is because it took the authorities over two months to admit/divulge that he was a police trainee, even though he resigned that same day. Wasn't that newsworthy then, too? Then how come it wasn't stated then? Also, doesn't "the man" have a name?

-2 ( +2 / -4 )

soon we will hear about the chief of police gets in Trouble for uploading these photos to the internet. another reason why shoe camereas sell well in Japan, but seriously this shouldn't be something a cop would do. its hard not to make jokes about it even though its wrong.

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

Why resign?...he is just following the examples set for him by his superiors and colleagues...Lately it seems that taking upskirt pics or perfecting the chikan touch is almost a career requirement for the cops here.

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

hahahahah

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

The evidence may become mislaid.

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

Much ado about nothing

Thank you Japan Today for mentioning clearly that he was fined and resigned. Usually these articles don't say what the punishment is.

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

This proves it - all Japansse police are perverts.

Mindless tar stroking is cool. :-)

-2 ( +0 / -2 )

Did he cuff himself ?

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

Its bad if the cops are doing the thing that thier supposed to stop people from doing.

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

Like what's with a 23 year old guy who needs to do that sort of stuff? With all that nice candy in izakayayas and everywhere else around for the taking, who needs looking up skirts with a camera? And to top it off, a cop trainee.

Gee, what a surprise, a JCop arrested for taking up-skirt pictures.... I tell ya, this is a rare, once in a lifetime event... (¬_¬)....
