Papa-katsu?? That's a thing? Who knew! Yikes! Scary story.
On a whole other note, I wonder about true cases resulting in mistaken identity. Surely, some gropers know how to do their "thing" while make it look like it was someone else in the vicinity. The whole app thing just doesn't seem to be enough, and I don't think the cameras in train cars is going to cut it either given how crowded some of those cars get. I would like to see more sensitive ads that appeal to the heart-strings of those would-be perpetrators.

Under-reporting is deceiving the general public into thinking that we're OK. According to a friend of mine, Kichijoji, for example, was packed yesterday with shoppers, as it usually is. Not good.

And if the child becomes sick as a result of going to school to do self study, who is to blame? The school, the parents? Or if a sick child goes to school and infects others....?
