You have misunderstood. The man Daiki Ogawa raped the child in September, and the acquaintance called the police once they saw the smartphone footage in mid-October, ie last week, and Daiki Ogawa was arrested the following week. The suggestion is that the footage was of the poor child.

No it isn't. You are linking "filming the incident on his smartphone" with "one of his acquaintances saw child pornography footage on his phone" and the article doesn't link the two phrases ]

Exactly.

People here so mentally challenged lol.

(Also there is in fact no "suggestion" that the footage was of the girl. This shows how deluded many people on here are.)

And therefore you deduce Ogawa has no interest in porn/porn does not play a major factor in these types of crimes?

lol People in major denial here.

Ogawa was arrested after one of his acquaintances saw child pornography footage on his phone in mid-October and contacted the police.

People here still reluctant to come down on porn? The connection is clear as day.

He is only caving in to the landowners aka shadow bosses demands. Research will show which crooks are invested in the land, hotels, restaurants and who owns or is calling the shots let alone have been for hundreds of years.

That's a hoot. Abe is as crooked as them and deeply intertwined with these people along with organized crime, don't even try to make out like Abe has been trying to uphold some superior moral standard 'in his sincere fight to help the common man.'

Of much greater concern are the many LDP politicians who both publicly and privately endorse their agenda. This neo-fascist manifesto differs little from the policy positions of the LDP.

Yes. Which exposes how poorly written this article is.

Everyone knows Abe has been pushing hard to reconfigure the Constitution and has been leading the charge on revisionist history.

The government knows it is absurd.

What better way to drive people to cram schools/eikaiwas as well as the language textbook section in bookstores? Prominent former gov't officials form the basis of Japan's TOEIC managing body.

[ Congratulations on those making a stand against thuggery and intimidation. Some people simply can’t handle and refuse to face the truth, blinded by hatred, Calmer, more solemn minds must prevail. Shutting down speech is a bad idea on any front. It has to be all out there, warts an all. ]

Well said.

Barring any cataclysmic gaffe Abe will remain in power due to his grip on the media and the fact that he has deep support amongst power brokers for his quest to amend the Constitution.

Posted in: Trade minister resigns after only 1 month over allegations he broke election law See in context

To resign is standard practice so as to forestall any further investigations, both as regards his person, as well as other members of the LDP.

It also will help insure he is not convicted, which will make it easy for him to simply slide right back into another position later after everyone has forgotten this.

His father actually made efforts to cultivate diplomacy by admitting the imperial blood line's link to Korea.

Remains to be seen if Naruhito has the courage to concretely contribute to his stated mission.

Winning the bid at all costs was the prime objective, as it will be a huge cash cow for the privileged elite.

Actually taking care of the games/athletes/spectators was obviously a secondary consideration, which is confirmed clearly now with this news.

This is just yet another symptom of the system installed post-1945.
