Sex Crime Soldier Exposes Self to Avoid Exposure


A soldier arrested for sex crimes claims he did it to avoid being sent back to duties in Japan’s disaster areas.

The 31-year-old man, a petty officer aboard a submarine rescue vessel (pictured), was arrested for indecent exposure after he bared himself one afternoon at a Kanagawa video rental store.

According to police, he had already been dispatched to Japan’s disaster areas twice in order to help recover missing bodies at sea, and was set to go again in the near future.

He claims this was what led to his arrest:

“I felt that I did not want to go to the disaster areas. It was harsh work there, I was under a great deal of stress.”

Soldiers in lesser nations generally shoot themselves in the foot to avoid service – in Japan they apparently commit a sex crime instead.

    Is showing yourself naked in public a sex crime??
    its just a naked person. Nobody gets hurt from that.
    Isn't that an insult for the victims of real sex crimes.

    Oh Japan. Using shame as a weapon since.... time immemorial.

    Especially the men. They make an art of shame even dating into the ancient culture.

    Pretty sure exposing yourself in America would get you arrested as well.

    True, but in America it'd just be 'indecent exposure', not considered a sex crime.

    Although I have to say, as soon as I saw the headline, I figured it was about an American sailor. Kinda a surprise to see it wasn't!

    Peeing in public will get you put on the registry in America. As will flashing, sexual assault ( rape ), molesting a child, and many other things. Basically, taking a whiz in public and getting caught will net you the same hatred from your community as raping a bunch of kids...

    I'm sure they'll be missing the don't ask don't tell policy. Apparently thousands excused themselves from service by falsely saying they were homosexual..

    It's one of the reasons I read whenever there's a sex offender notice in my mailbox. Unless there's more than one crime on the list, it's almost always something that they did that the wrong person saw. Like being 18 and having sex with a 17-year-old and caught by parents. But the worst part is, all of them get lumped into the same level as the worst of them, and they do not deserve it. 'Rape' and 'sexual assault' is the type of language used for actual rapists, but 'sexual acts with a minor' alone can mean they were nude on their balcony and a parent called the cops because their kid glanced across the street.

    One CSI episode put it clearly, a guy was being investigated who just happened to be in the proximity of a dead little girl and was on the list, but only because he had done LSD and ran out naked, and there happened to be school children there. Boom, end of his life. After they exposed him as a suspect, even after proving him completely unrelated, just a string of coincidences, his life was still ruined, because our system is utterly retarded. It may have been a show, but that's how it actually is.

    well you are a pussy.

    now to the sex offender people. if you ever get put on that list, you may as well kill yourself, you cant live where you want, you cant go where you want, you cant live within... what is it, close to a mile of a school, among other things. and if people know you are a sex offender, you better have a safe place to hide when an amber alert gets sounded. people will make attempts on your life.

    In America? Don't you get put on the sex offender's list for peeing in public?

    If peeing in public gets you on the sex offender's list... I don't know about flashing...

    Wouldn't being homosexual make you pretend you want to join the army to see other buff naked guys?

    It's like catch-22 if you're homo then you'll not say you're homo so you can see buff guys and if you say you're homo then the army can use the former reasoning to say you're just trying to excuse service and still enlist you.

    one of my former bosses was put on the list because he passed out drunk in front of the tv tunned to the playboy channel, his son comes back from school, sits down and starts watching. later aunt *divorced wife's sister* comes in for a visit and calls the cops.

    Yes it is an insult to the real victims of sex crimes. The same way that arresting sad life 40 year old men for having loli porn is an insult to actual children who were abused.

    What a waste. You might as well have groped someone and gotten something out of it if you were looking to commit a crime anyway.

    He didn't get away with it and I'm willing to bet groping has a heavier punishment.

    Umm, the whole point was NOT to get away with it according to him. Since he was going to commit a crime where he wanted to be caught anyway, he should have picked one that offered a little more satisfaction. I just don't see dropping trou in front of a video store clerk as all that entertaining.

    You seem to be implying that all sex crimes are equal.

    You're suggesting he molest someone instead of flashing himself since he's going to get the same punishment anyways? At the absolute MINIMUM, he wanted to get arrested for a crime.

    It is likely that molestation would be more than he bargained for.

    Nah, this is Japan we're talking about. He should be just fine no matter what he does. After all, don't we see stories on here of teachers fucking school girls all the time and at most being reassigned? I'm sure it'd work out just fine.

    Artefact: you need to learn how to take relevant facts from articles. This is just terrible. I had to go to the original article to find out any real information. Your article does not disclose nationality and omits important details. School much?

    I believe this is a troll, but I'll clarify anyway.

    The original article doesn't mention nationality either. From the context you would be expected to assume this is a Japanese person serving in the JMSDF - I'm not sure why you'd assume otherwise.

    The sad thing is that people can't just simply say that they do not want to be forced to work in certain areas.

    Think about this way: Most of the the worker in Fukushima aren't their on their own will. They are being forced to work there by threatening them with social and monetary repercussions. Most of them are underpaid part-time "hire-and-fire" workers with difficult backgrounds.
    That's the true, ugly face of Japan. Time to get used to it.

    More like to sissy too fufil his patriotic duty of helping his own kind. Truly despicable, this man is! As I would gladly accept the rescue duty of helping those Japanese civilians, and hold my head high knowing I am doing good deeds. Someone need to castrate this guy, seriously, in order to ensure that his cowardly brethens won't spread out like a disease and corrupt the society of our future offspring

    Ignore him. He's just another weaboo kid who's too ignorant to know how stinky a human corpse is.

    My cop friend is with the APB unit. Once, he got a call to investigate a house which was emitting foul odor in the neighbourhood. When he broke in, turned out a senior citizen who lived alone died in there from heart attack. His corpse was already 5 days old and his stomach had burst. In his own words:

    "My uniform had a dead man's stench for 3 days straight and I hadn't much appetite to eat in 6."

    Imagine the pressure rescue workers have to go through, literally LOOKING for dead bodies. I respect those who can handle it(search and rescue are trained to handle that kind of pressure), but I won't scoff on a grunt soldier who's just honest with himself.

    Just because you're a soldier doesn't mean you have access to firearms, especially in a low-combat atmosphere like this.

    And it'd take a LOT of airsoft to mangle your foot.

    Reading his one sentence long explanation really doesn't covers the truth: he could be lying, he could be afraid of radiation etc. He helped his nation 2 times already, maybe he had a reason to not do it again...?
