I find it interesting that Nissan hired a surveillance team to monitor his coming and goings.
After living in Japan for around 20 years and being able to read the news paper in both English and Japanese there is definitely a discrepancy in the reporting. There is also a different understanding of the Social contact and what role the government should play in protecting the innocent. The belief is, rightly or wrongly, that innocent people shouldn't put themselves in the position to be off interest to the police. It's abhorrent to us as Westerners but it is what many Japanese lawyers have been fighting to change for the last 40 or so years.
