@Btang, I get your point, but PERHAPS with the current high stress atmosphere, and the possibility of evil reacting off evil; PERHAPS unimaginable sparks can fly, especially from incubating anger, where it can appear PERHAPS that no such readily available solution or counseling exist.

They call it " disturbing the public peace" ? for groping? amazing.

"he can’t remember the incident because he was drunk at the time....covert denial & selective amnesia

Perhaps the train cameras can refresh his memory... totally mind-boggling

"she wanted to be arrested."

IMO: Unfortunate woman probably got driven to her wits end, and had no one fair and helping to turn to, in a repressive, boxed in , keg powder generating social atmosphere with a fastback to the gendarme.

Posted in: New service pays 'bounty hunters' to catch shoplifters and train gropers See in context

OK GREAT!

THE FIRST STEP:

Protecting women "train gropers"

Stopping store thieves.

Next step:

Protecting women from stalkers.

Protecting Granny's from phone scammers

Good Luck!:

"Stories like this are becoming too common.

what is it with some Japanese men and their insane, disturbing and out of this world obsessions."

I had an upstairs neighbor who would make very loud stomping patterns ,banging furniture, and knocking things over at least 3 to 4 times a day. The management told me he already knew about this broken light-bulb, and shrugged his arms as to say nothing could be done about it.

Hello Goodlucktoyou,

Speaking of security cameras, an acquaintance, had tried to have a city camera installed on his street in Tokyo because of the seedy characters roaming and hanging around his street at all kinds of hours. He was told to go to his community center, but was told by the community center that he needed more people who agreed with his suggestion, before they could put in a such a request to his ward office. I told him (in Japan), that they will probably put one up, after something happens.

Posted in: Man arrested after driving car into group gathered round motorbike See in context

Where I used to live there was an puny elderly guy with a modified, souped up older skyline car with fancy rims. His car is very loud, even when at idle. He would rev the engine and it got louder on early mornings and weekends. His engine would rattle sound all through the block, and when he took off he made more loud engine sounds. BTW his house is next to a nursery school and preschool, day care. Funny thing is the other Japanese put up with it.

"Monster neighbors are a real thing in Japan. I guess the fact that many apartment buildings are made with very thin walls and floors that offer no noise insulation doesn't help. I've had quite a few 'monster neighbor' experiences in the years I've lived here"

DITTO!

Posted in: Man jumps onto train tracks after being accused of filming up woman’s skirt See in context

"he station staff came and took us both to the office. The police came and interrogated him for about 20 minutes. On the other hand, they held me for nearly two hours asking me all kinds of stupid questions. I was actually told to, "Stay out of Japan business" by one of the cops. "

I believe it and agree, many westerners have been told that in this country with regard, to such circumstances. But if a westerner does something wrong, all of them in the vicinity will jump in, and alert the jops.

Posted in: Tokyo man arrested for 'putting curse' on school kids See in context

@Disillusioned,

Totally agree, I have a one above me , When I asked him about the loud noises he said, I don't know what you are talking about- then stated do you want to be enemies?. After calling the police about his loud stomping on the thin cement floors (old BLDG) he on purpose increased the stomping and banging with freq, and volume (early morning, midday, and late night), The flops did nothing. Once I thought he would break through the floor. When ever I see him he has a red alcohol face. I think he is trying to make me move. BTW no help from the apt mgmt -either: saying we all have to learn to live together. Now that I've shared my experience with others who can relate I feel better.

thanks
