Posted in: NPA left red-faced after official blows his top at Narita See in context

It is interesting that, even after all he did, Mr. Masuda was allowed to go through and board a plane. I wonder if the same thing would have happened if he were not an NPA official. I also strongly suspect that if he were Chinese, Nigerian, or Pakistani the intervening "senior police officer" would not have just "calmed him down".

The especially troubling part is that Mr. Masuda's job was to supervise the police. How many legitimate citizen complaints did he overlook or cover up because of his belief that the police are "different from" us?
