Posted in: How to apprehend a 'chikan' and protect women from being groped on a train See in context

Do not get involved. I was treated with suspicion when I handed in a lost purse at a koban. There is no way I’d do anything that would get me involved with the police again .

There would be a lot more than 39 executions in eight years if it were otherwise.

They would not get the death sentence for rape.
