“Resisting”

5 ( +8 / -3 )

What about the young lady who actually died in immigration? What compensation did she get again?

He was resisting, so i don't see how they could have been gentle in such a situation. Maybe it's time we think about adapting like other countries and just use tasers to bring them down.

what a "jooku" 100man yen???

-4 ( +7 / -11 )

Kussunoki, 35, filed the lawsuit in 2019, seeking 5 million yen in compensation. 

And by now he must owe millions in lawyer's fees. The system of legal redress in Japan slowly but surely devolves into a diabolically vicious circle of debt to discourage litigation by the little guys on the street who are soon brushed off and made to realize they just have to suck it up (the injustice), or as the Japanese resignedly put it with a sigh, "nakineiri" (cry yourself to sleep - and suffer in silence). The Brazilian no doubt now understands that "justice" is a hard nut to find and to crack once you enter the corridors in the Kafkaesque labyrinth of the law which always lead you back to where you started (and no better off).

Detainees are gods. You must beg them to follow the guidelines anytime anywhere.

Good!

You can see the video on YouTube. Very violent.

As soon as Whisma's video gets released they must upload it to YouTube to have a case.

Public exposure is the only way to fight in the Japanese "Justice"

Wow. A whole 10man yen. That's more than $740USD!!! He's set for life.

So, assault 100,000 yen

and a case in Hyogo, the judge awarded a million yen for a cop’s death due to harassment.

Life in Japan has little value…

It's an uphill battle. Most people will go out of their way to blame the victim as it's beyond their imagination the system or those that uphold it could be unfair or unjust. The 100,000 mentioned here are little more than a slap on the wrist as well.

100,000 Yen only? Poor guy

-5 ( +3 / -8 )

How would it be like when you have to control detainees or prisoners in other countries, when they are resisting what has to be done. FYI, he is not just a detainee overstayed his visa, he was convicted guilty at criminal trial and ordered deportation.

He refused the transfer order and locked and barricaded himself in a toilet with a few wooden chairs at the Tokyo facility.

Yes it is. Foreign media like most posters here blame always servants under the law as it's beyond their imagination that every single reported scoops could possibly be unfair or unjust by the detainees, like knowingly, or willfully violate the rules/laws by underestimating how those acts are unfair and unjust.

26 deaths of detainees in Japanese immigration centers since 2007 and no immigration agent ever got reprimanded or indicted.

The j-justice agents are untouchable.

No, it isn't, but some of us doubt the fairness of the rules and don't believe that breaking the rules should make anyone fair game for inhumane treatment. This man violently held down with officers shouting foul language at him. Clearly, they wouldn't behave like this if they thought they'd be held accountable for their actions.

First, This man was violently resisting , meaning the officers facing him could have been injured too.

Secondly, rules are rules. Illegal drugs here are illegal and you must prepare yourself for serious consequence if you still knowingly take such risk.

This man violently held down with officers shouting foul language at him. Clearly, they wouldn't behave like this if they thought they'd be held accountable for their actions.

I am not sure about that except they could have shouted ”Don't rampage”、"Don't resist", "Shut up" in

polite form. The officer who testified at this court clearly mentioned " We have done the right thing in a way we have been trained"

You know how officers get violent resistants , or even just demonstrators under control in US, Hong Kong, Russia , etc

Are you saying it was unfair that he was busted for possessing illegal drugs for which he could not extend his visa? Many of you actually doubt the fairness of J-Justice, criticize J-law/system, hence using force against force looks inhumane to your eyes.

Tell me how you think the officers at Tokyo center should have done. ?

Nice inflation in number. Give me a link will you?

Just to make it clear that Mr. Andre Kussunoki didn't present any threat or violent behaviour.

Look at the footage, he was trying to reason with that raging multitude of trained animals.

What’s the point of his own narrative? Reasoning with officers while barricading himself with a few wooden tables in the toilet? He was a convicted criminal and was to be moved to Ushiku center from Tokyo center.

You should think why ISAJ released this video footage

And you should provide a link to prove your inflation in number.

@keenyG

Why do you keep talking about Mr. Kussunoki criminal record?

Do you find his criminal record relevant to the article?

Aren't you going off topic?

Isn't there the principle that everyone is equal in the eyes of the law in Japan?

...just asking.

The "this is Japan" morals and ethics are so different from what I take as the normal.

Thanks for the answer.

I understand from that, that you are the exception, not the norm.

Educated people expect human rights to be honored and respected as essential block to live in society.

Most Japanese feel ashamed of their country when they read this article.

The link to Mainichi daily you provided clearly says it is 17 death at detention centers since 2007

10 illness, 5 suicide, 2 unknown reason. Why don't you just grow up and stop lying in public forum Huh?
