25 Comments

Police in Yoshikawa, Saitama Prefecture, have arrested a 43-year-old police officer on suspicion of filming up the skirt of a high school girl.

According to police, Keita Nonaka, a sergeant at Kasukabe Police Station, used his smartphone camera to film up the girl’s skirt on an escalator at Yoshikawa Minami Station on the JR Musashino Line at around 10 p.m. on March 14, NHK reported.

A person nearby noticed Nonaka’s suspicious behavior and called police. Nonaka had left the scene when police arrived but apparently dropped his smartphone.

Police arrested Nonaka on Sunday and said he has admitted to the allegation.

 officer on suspicion of filming up the skirt of a high school girl.

To protect and to serve, and little bit a peek.

Police Officer in Japan? Say it isn't so!

he has admitted to the allegation

Strangely, In Japan, everybody admitted to police allegations.

Police can fabricate any kind of story to arrest you. By default, the suspect always admitted the BS....

It sounds like he wanted to be caught of a crime and be fired. So he dropped his phone with photos.

Had to "cop" a look? Why not just visit a red light district while off duty?

Yet another story about delinquent cops for my collection.

"Police in Yoshikawa, Saitama Prefecture, have arrested a 43-year-old police officer on suspicion of filming up the skirt of a high school girl."

Oh no, not again. If it’s not a policeman it’s a school teacher. Why is going on these days?

if you make a list of all the police in japan that have done a crime (convicted or just done in general without being recorded) since becoming a cop,

vs

a list of police that have not committed a crime at all,

which list would be longer?

As a policeman, officer no less, you are held to high standard by society so it’s sad whenever these individuals slide to the other side. It negatively affects the morale of the other diligent officers. Also, it is difficult to fathom what kind of return this kind of activity brings? Is there some kind of underground competition going around? Some will say kink, but I am unable to comprehend.

Why drop your phone if apprehended ?

Why the perv does not store photos in an encrypted file for instance...oh they are not James Bond for sure.

Always so strange In Japan.

Peeping with your eyes with effort is enough and plentiful.

I always said, soon they're will be a special visa for foreigners to be teachers or police officers because Japan would lack its quotas ;)

The only thing I've ever seen police do is measure tyre positions, fine people not stopping at stop signs (even when the view is clear both ways) and writing reports after car accidents (not a requirement in the UK and presumably other countries). I don't think they'll ever be a shortage of necessary police. Just bureaucrats.

probably did not want to risk getting the "cherry on his top, so he goes for something that might be clean.

What's the punishment for this? A stern warning? A really strong punishment, such as a prison term might act as a deterrent.

Anytime you have someone in a power position they will at one point or another abuse their power whether it is gross negligence or a minor infraction. No one is perfect, yes the officer was in a position where he is being held to high standard by a society he is sworn in to protect and serve. We are humans and we should ask ourselves as citizens are we perfect. When you are in an automobile you are suppose to drive the posted speed limit, how often do you drive above the limit. If you are speeding you are abusing your privilege. Now what if that same officer pulled you over because he caught you speeding but instead of giving you a ticket he gives you a "warning". My question is he abusing his authority for not giving you that ticket? You broke the law but he gave you a warning. Yes, the officer was wrong perhaps he too will get a warning. No one is perfect.

High school girl? isn't she most likely a minor? Shouldn't that be classed as child porn? unless she had just turned 18 in the last few days... it is only the 9th of April. Isn't it wonderful how they change the facts for one of their own...

Not sure if underwear shots are considered porn - legally.

His defense will be inspection of wearing the correct underwear which still is in practice in some schools.

You'd think a police officer would know better on how not to get caught and arrested.
