15 Comments

Police in Urawa, Saitama Prefecture, have fired a 23-year-old policeman for video voyeurism and sent his case to prosecutors.

According to Saitama prefectural police, the policeman, who works in the traffic division, made a master key which he used to enter a dorm shared by two female police officers in their 20s on at least seven occasions between last October and Jan 5, Saitama Shimbun reported. He placed a spy camera in the room of one of the women and filmed her getting undressed. The woman found the camera on Jan 5 and reported it to her boss.

The officer told police he made the key to the women’s dorm after reading how to do it on the internet.

Police quoted the officer, who was fired on Thursday, as saying he got a thrill out of watching women undress and seeing their underwear

Police officers need to be subjected to a much higher standard of conduct, I hope he gets an exemplary punishment.

nah!

He knows how the system works.

A quick apology and all will be forgiven.

Nice of the Saitama police to protect his identity.

Coming to a dormitory near you.

It's not unreasonable to suspect that his is one of the main reasons Japanese men want to be cops. Sure are a lot of stories about this. Iconic representation of a sublimated Japanese male id. All work and no play make Taro a dull boy, etc.

I don't really get this.. he gets a thrill from seeing women in their underwear? Just visit any European (nudist) beach in summer - after a few minutes it all becomes not at all thrilling and in fact quite boring, actually.

There must be some mistake.

I can’t believe a Japanese police officer would do this.

And in Saitama of all places!

Cream of the crop there!

These small cameras were created for surveillance and to fight crime not commit crime

I can understand that some people do this kind of thing, but I don't understand why a police officer would confess to it.

Dude, if you're 23, you presumably aren't married yet, and If you are, you aren't bored yet. Go get some real live females! You won't be in your early 20's forever. There will be plenty of time to be a sex-starved slob later in life!

He was undercover

Very strange behavior.

"Very strange behavior."

"He knows how the system works"

.......

IMO: Would hate to get profiled by such a character of such defects , wouldn't stand a chance with j-justice.
