I’ve had a similar thing happen before where the J-plods pulled up behind me at a red light and switched their flashing red lights on but with no siren. I didn’t have a clue what was going on or what I had possibly done so on the green light I pulled over to the left where it was safe and put my hazard lights on, only for them to then manoeuvre awkwardly around me and continue slowly on their way with their lights still flashing. Unlike the dickhead in that story though, I just shook my head and got on with my day.

In Aus if the cops are behind you and they put the lights on they ARE pulling you over for something, or they’ll put the lights on and blare the siren which means get the fuck out of the way.

I’ve since seen it a whole bunch of times here where the J-plods must just think it’s cool just to drive around with their lights flashing for no fucking reason whatsoever…….. :bird:

Me too and in fact I think its actually a hazard cause people are too worried about what the plods are doing and/or where they are coming from and aren't paying close enough attention to what they are doing.

They do that shit all the time here in Tennoji/Abeno. I've even seen the unmarked cars driving around with the old bubble-style magnet-to-the-roof light going. (kinda defeats the purpose, eh?)

Same here. They have pope-mobiles as well with lots and lots of flashing lights. I think it seen as an effective deterrence. Fair enough I suppose, but odd to my eyes for sure.

The guy is a complete idiot. Chasing the police on an emergency call to demand to know what they think they are doing? C'mon .... The only question I have is what motivated the JT to publish his nonsense. Certainly done us no favours.

I would like to make a suggestion which would boost revenues for cops here in Osaka by about 150%. Red light cameras at major intersections! Just put them to use. They actually serve a number of purposes quite well. Especially around schools. The number of times Ive seen little kids that just started primary school nearly being hit because some DICKFUCK runs a red light!

Iwate cop arrested for uploading naked photos of acquaintance
Crime Feb. 08, 2012 - 06:40AM JST

IWATE —
A police officer in Iwate Prefecture has been arrested for defamation of character after he allegedly posted naked photographs of a female acquaintance onto an Internet message board without her permission.

According to Iwate prefectural police, the suspect, identified as Koji Takahashi, a 36-year-old subsection chief in the traffic division, uploaded several naked photos of the woman, a resident of Aomori Prefecture, from his home computer, TV Asahi reported. Police said Tuesday the crime was discovered when investigators received an anonymous tip-off.

At a press conference in Iwate, a police spokesperson said, “This kind of incident is extremely regrettable, especially in an earthquake-hit area at a time when we are pooling our manpower and require every officer available to help maintain law and order,” TV Asahi reported.

Just got caught in a speed trap today. The cops were cool but made me go home to get my passport to prove that I've been in Japan less than a year and in Amerikkka longer than three months. Making sure my international drivers license in valid for use. Took them a while to copy every single page of my passport and IDL. They charged me 12,000 yen for going 17 over. They made polite small talk with me and triple checked that I knew the procedure to either pay or contest the ticket. Obvious racists, I'm getting a hold of Debito right now.

Sorry to hear that. It feels like they are scamming you when you get caught in their trap (entrapment anyone?) and then the same fuckers have the furikomi forms (handy isnt it!) Happened to Mrs ABs about 10 years ago. Was not clearly marked but no right turn entry street. Cop was waiting right there. I wonder what would happen if someone refused to pay the fines?

I was going 17 over. I trapped myself. They did however pick a great location right past a bend where everyone speeds. There were at least ten other speeders going in and out of that van as well.

OSAKA —
An Osaka police officer has been arrested on suspicion of forging a police identification card and selling the forgery for 150,000 yen.

The 53-year-old officer apparently made the forgery for a friend in 2009, TV Asahi reported Thursday. The identification wound up at a police goods surplus store, but the store owner will not face charges, police say.

The officer is under suspicion of selling other forged identifications, as well as his uniform and hat on an online auction.
Aah. I see whats going on...The police surplus store has long ties to the cops so they get a break. Righhhht.

Police caution more than 10,000 in Tokyo for breaking new bicycle rules
TOKYO —
Police in Tokyo said that more than 10,000 people have already been given warnings by police for breaking the city’s newly implemented bicycle regulations.

On Friday, police visited the roughly 100 areas of the capital which have been designated “Bicycle Traffic Regulation Zones.” Officers monitored rush hour bicycle traffic and cautioned commuters who were in violation of the new rules and regulations, Fuji TV reported.

According to police, over 10,000 cyclists throughout the capital have been cautioned for using cell phones and listening to earphones while riding, among other violations.

Tokyo police have also announced that they intend to enforce the rules during high traffic density periods in the morning and evening of the 10th day of every month, Fuji reported.
Right. So rather than stopping drivers that run red lights by 5 seconds or something like that the cops are going to harass people on bicycles.

The thing is I wish they would do it here in Osaka. We need it! And one of the first things that should happen here is FINING all the FUCKSTAINS that ride their bikes in the arcade/Shoutengai. And also the people who ride too fast on the footpath in Namba.

I figure it's a lot less work to stop a cyclist than to actually make the effort and use the time to fuck with a motorist. Lazy wankers.

TOKYO —
Police said Tuesday they have arrested a man for allegedly fatally stabbing his father over a TV program dispute at their home in Tokyo’s Toshima ward on Monday.

According to police, a woman called 110 at 3:30 p.m. and said that her son had stabbed her husband with a knife, NTV reported.

Paramedics found Mitsuo Kubota, 76, lying on the floor, having sustained multiple stab wounds to his chest and torso. His 50-year-old son, Hiroshi, reportedly confessed to stabbing his father with a kitchen knife and was arrested at the scene for attempted murder, NTV reported.

Kubota was taken to hospital where he died a short time later. Police said the charge against the son will be changed to murder.

During questioning, Kubota was quoted as police as saying that he and his father got into an argument over which TV channel to watch, NTV reported

Bloody hell! Japanese TV is terrible. But killing your dad over which channel? Moron.

Stopping people for breaking the "new bicycle rules"?

IIRC those new bicycle laws, written by people who get chauffeured to "work" and haven't touched a bicycle since the war, basically boil down to:
"It is illegal to ride on the road.
It is illegal to ride on the sidewalk."

Simple.

Dear Japanese Police

You lot can shove this news story where the sun doesnt shine. How about some figures on the number of cops breaking the law in Japan? :FU: :FU: :FU: :FU: :FU: :FU:
Crimes committed by foreigners dropped 12.7 percent in 2011 to 17,286 cases, a preliminary survey released Thursday by the National Police Agency showed.

The number of foreigners questioned, arrested and handed over to prosecutors last year also fell, totaling 10,061, down 15.2 percent from 2010.

Both numbers have been on the decline since peaking in 2005, the survey said.

Foreigners with permanent residency status were not included in the data.

Among the crimes committed, fake marriage cases soared 26.1 percent to 193 during the period, with the number of foreigners probed rising 17.6 percent to 554.

The police have been clamping down on illegitimate marriages because they are believed to be generating the infrastructure to carry out a host of other criminal activities, the survey said.

Penal Code violations meanwhile slumped by 10.2 percent from the previous year to 12,590, while infringements on the Immigration Control and Refugee Recognition Act and other laws dropped 18.8 percent to 4,696 cases.

By country of origin, China topped the list of law breakers, with 4,012 citizens, accounting for 39.9 percent of the total, followed by regional neighbors South Korea and the Philippines.

The number of foreign suspects who fled overseas in 2011 also slipped, by 4.0 percent, to a total of 677, the NPA's survey said.

And this bullcrap... Tell it to the people here in Osaka. They ride their bikes: 1) On the road 2) In the arcades 3) On the footpaths 4) On pedestrian crossings 5) Where ever the fuck they feel like. And the cops stand there and do fuck all.

Sergeant arrested for stealing cash from police station
CRIME MAR. 04, 2012 - 06:13AM JST ( 28 )TOKYO —
A police sergeant has been arrested for allegedly stealing money from a police station in Oji, Tokyo.

The 34-year-old officer, a sergeant in the Community Safety Department, is suspected of having stolen around 240,000 yen from a locker in the station. The money was given to the station by a voluntary group working to reduce juvenile crime, TV Asahi reported.

According to police, the amount of money in the locker decreased three times since October last year at intervals that coincided with the sergeant’s shifts. When questioned by his superiors about the correlation, he reportedly confessed to having stolen the money.

The sergeant was quoted as saying he used the money to pay back some of his debts and for playing pachinko, TV Asahi reported.

Chiba police ignored stalker report and went on trip to Hokk

Chiba police ignored stalker report and went on trip to Hokkaido
Crime Mar. 23, 2012 - 12:56PM JST

CHIBA —
The National Police Agency on Thursday said that Chiba prefectural police delayed accepting a report on a known stalker for more than a week and went on a three-day excursion to Hokkaido last December. The stalker allegedly killed two women shortly after.

NPA chief Yutaka Katagiri told a news conference that he has ordered an investigation into the case, which he said has damaged public trust in the police, TBS reported.

The latest development follows a public apology made by police officials from Nagasaki, Chiba and Mie prefectures earlier this month for their inability to prevent the stalker from killing the two women.

Mitsuko Yamashita, 56, and her mother-in-law, Hisae Yamashita, 77, were found stabbed to death in the rear compartment of their minivan outside their home in Saikai, Nagasaki Prefecture, on Dec 16.

The man arrested for the murders, Gota Tsutsui, 27, from Kuwana in Mie Prefecture, had been warned twice by Chiba police and was already under investigation for allegedly assaulting Yamashita’s 23-year-old daughter.

The girl’s father first contacted Chiba police on Oct 29 to alert them to the violence, following which Tsutsui was given a warning by police. According to police, Tsutsui continued to harass the girl by telephone and email and was again warned by police to leave her alone. Investigators say Tsutsui promised not to contact her again and went back to Mie.

Yamashita and his daughter visited police in person on Dec 6 to file charges against Tsutsui for assault. However, the police told him they were busy with “more urgent cases” and asked him to come back the following week.

Katagiri said that the officers in charge of the case went on a three-day trip to Hokkaido from Dec 8-10. They finally accepted the complaint from Yamashita on Dec 14—two days before the murders—but had no knowledge of Tsutsui’s whereabouts by then.

He said the NPA will question the Chiba police about the trip and instruct them to show a greater sense of urgency in dealing with such complaints, TBS reported.

No. of reported stalking cases tops 14,000 in 2011

More than 14,000 stalking incidents were reported to police for the fourth year in a row, the National Police Agency said in a report released Thursday. Eight of those incidents led to murder or an attempted murder, according to the NPA.

The total number was 14,618. The report said 62% of incidents involved a current or former lover or separated spouse. The next biggest number involved acquaintances, followed by work colleagues, TBS reported.

The report said that police warnings or restraining orders were issued in 1,343 cases.

An NPA spokesman said they want to rethink their strategy in dealing with such crimes, after the report found that four of the eight most serious incidents involved victims who had come forward to the police for help, TBS reported.

The report also found that, although some cases involved those who came to the police for help, a number of cases involved victims who had ignored suggestions from authorities.

Is it just me, or are th cops in Chiba the worst of the lot? How many times can a police force fuck up and let a murderer get away (Ichihashi) or commit the crime when they knew about it (Tsutsui) before there's a major overhaul?

The only time I ever had unpleasant experiences with Japanese police (as in total unprofessionalism) was in Chiba. It was probably more of a random thing (bad luck) than some concerted effort by the national police HQ to send its fuckups and underachievers to Chiba, which would have been responsible for the unprofessional treatment I received...

Police officer pushes student off bike; lifts up her skirt
CRIME MAR. 27, 2012 - 06:30AM JST ( 20 )GUNMA —
Police in Gunma said Monday that a police officer has been arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a university student.

According to investigators, the officer, who has been named as 24-year-old Hideki Tsukui, was stationed at Takasaki police station in Gunma Prefecture. On Sunday morning at about 3 a.m., Tsukui allegedly pushed the 21-year-old woman off her bicycle as she rode past and attempted to lift up her skirt, Fuji TV reported. The woman sustained minor injuries to her legs in the attack, police said.

During questioning, Tsukui was quoted as saying he wanted to touch a young woman’s body, Fuji reported.

A similar crime took place around an hour and 40 minutes later, roughly 400 meters away, in which a 19-year-old girl was pushed off her bike, police said. Tsukui is being questioned about his involvement in the second incident.

I would be asking for two sets of charges if I was the girl involved. The first assault for pushing her off her bicycle. The second attempted rape. Then of course she could sue him for mental anguish and embarrassment.

To be honest I dont know how it works here but I dont think the victim gets to decide what charges are laid. Nor does the victim have any say in it. I bet the cop gets off easily with a warning and maybe losing his job. Though probably not.

Sadly, :agree: . Most likely he'll get a slap on the wrist and become a desk jockey. IMO he should actually go to prison, lose his pension and be barred from any type of law enforcement/security job. But that's just wishful thinking here in Nihon.
