    Yes, sweetie, it is fun but you should learn to behave yourself! Some people think they are still 10 and should do anything that brings them joy. You NEED to grow up, specially if you want to be cop!!

    There should be a special section for police gropings and panty shoots.

    Why is his name withheld? Get caught lifting a pack of gym from the combini and your name and nationality go in the news. Is it just because he's a cop? Double standards indeed! I'm sure he will be severely scolded by his mum and be back at work by the end of the week.

    Here comes the well worn statement from the police mgmt , week after week...- "We will sincerely reflect on this and take steps this kind of incident does not happen again"....their prevention steps kinda not proving very effective are they?

    I haven't seen it on the news once, except here in print. He should be publicly reprimanded for his actions and his face across the TV so everybody knows what a disgrace he is to the uniform.

    How many cops got busted this year for the same reason?

    Too many to count. Year after year, and these are officers that the average Taro is supposed to look up to as protectors and upholders of the law? In addition, despite all the promises of action by the mgmt , nothing has changed at all.

    A severely confused policeman with upskirt voyeurism which is a psychosexual disorder. He cannot control his passion, committed a crime, and needs professional help. Once released he should be registered as a sex-offender then have him undergo psychosexual evaluation and adhere to any resulting recommendation. Unfortunately the prognosis for eliminating voyeurism is poor because most voyeurs have no desire to change their sickening and perverted behavior.

    He would have been real disappointed if she wasn't wearing any underwear.

    ?..and didn't they JUST print a big article about how they were going to pass a law somewhere about this sort of thing? "Crack down " , blah, blah, blah, and yet ANOTHER J-Cop gets arrested for it!

    why is the whole panti photo thing a big deal anyway.. cant see anyones face anyway... if its something that bothers you that much, dont wear ultra mini or wear hot pants under it like most people do, guys dont wear huge see thru briefs on the street do they... the whole attention on the subject makes no sense whatsoever

    Not too sure what to say, maybe Serrano is right, young ladies should not bother with underwear so these pervo cops will not be doing this in the train station escalators etc...

    (sarcasm)I am sure this is all a big misunderstanding! Why I bet the officer in question was actually working UNDERCOVER to bust unsuspecting UP-SKIRT picture takers,and what better way to bust them than posing as one,we should be ashamed of ourselves for thinking this cop would STOOP to such a level. (sarcasm)

    My thoughts exactly. I know that there are bad, even perverted cops, everywhere in the world, but the Japanese ones are truly in a league of their own!

    I have a great idea for Japan Today, They make a new section just for "police in trouble"

    I'm sure it will be one of the most popular and frequented sections!!

    Oh, victim blaming I see! How about instead of telling girls what they can and cannot wear, how about telling dudes to stop being creepy perverts?

    Maybe, maybe..they're in reality on a secret mission, to find out what kind of underwear high school girls wear!

    So do I but I don't mind waiting till they show me, and the operative word here is 'women'.

    inverse - yes victim blaming.. whats wrong ? if you skirt short enough to see your panties thru then its your problem. next women will be saying its ok for us to go naked but you cant take picture or look at us... you seem to be lost in radical feminism.
