Police have dropped child prostitution charges against one of their number who was caught paying girls aged 13 and 16 for 3P sex, accepting his excuse that “they looked at least 20,” prompting much outrage online.

According to Hokkaido prefectural police, one of their (completely unidentified) officers repeatedly paid two girls aged 13 and 16 for sex at a Sapporo hotel, having met them with the aid of a deai-kei site.

After he was caught, the officer, in his forties, claimed “they looked as if they were at least over 20” and maintains they lied about their ages.

Prosecutors inexplicably dropped multiple child prostitution charges against him, although police did punish him with a 3 month suspension. He has since tendered his resignation, perhaps intending to take up teaching instead.

The “I didn’t know they were underage” defence is not usually admissible in underage sex trials, even when lies and false IDs are employed by the underage party, and such prosecutions commonly end in convictions – although police prosecutors can still decline to prosecute in the first place, as happened here.

Online, the fact that scores of similar prostitution cases involving defendants protesting that they did not know their partners were underage ended in conviction has prompted a great deal of comment, even more outraged than it is envious:

“What the hell?”

“They certainly look after their own.”

“Come on, a 13-year-old who looks as if she is over 20?”

“16 is believable but not 13.”

“Rejoice, you damn lolicon! In Hokkaido it is legal as long as you can say you didn’t know they were underage.”

“But only if you are an official.”

“Normally they report names, ages and occupation as soon as they make an arrest, never mind about whether it results in a conviction or actual charges.”

“Nice to see our public servants are putting our taxes to good use by spending them on having sex with children with impunity.”

“Talk about organised criminals.”

“Shows what sort of person should consider the police as a career choice.”

“We’re really no better than the likes of North Korea if our authorities act as a law unto themselves like this.”

“In the private sector you’d be sacked and convicted… on the other hand our police get to quietly retire only when they get caught, without charges.”

“They’d do anything to bring down a normal person and call them a liar, but when it comes to their own they are innocent.”

“So if we want to have sex with minors we just need to become police or teachers?”

“The cops in this country are worse than the yakuza…”

    i believe it should be forgivable if girls lie about their age or have fake id
    It's actually the girls fault then not the mans fault.
    Who agrees?

    The problem here is that it's not the first time something like this has happened. (Also, the policeman was PAYING them. That means prostitutions (I'm not sure if that's illegal in Japan)) And how the hell can a 13-year-old look 20 naked? There's a BIG difference between body development.

    Apparently, you've never seen a grown woman who was short & flat-chested. Yesterday at a transit terminal, I found myself doing a double-take because one of the two little girls I saw looked like she might have been a short woman rather than a little girl. What made me suspicious was the difference in the way the two "girls" were acting.

    Its astonishing how well developed some 11-16 year olds are nowadays...its all around the world, since everywhere people are eating more 'nutritious food' (as in fast food with plenty of all the nice things that make you fatter real fast...) When I was 11, girls had no body whatsoever, or were on the cusp to beggin to have you can see a 5 foot tall 11 years old girl that have more body than most 16 years old could ever hope to have at that age...its simply more common to happen now. And in Japan, where girls at 7 and up use clothes that are trendy (like the idols and such) its not that uncommon to get a freaking 7+ year old looking way older than she should ever look like....

    If the girl lie about their age, or have fake id, I think YES, it is the girls fault, not the man fault. Only if man manage to prove that they totally get fooled with that and the girl do look the age they are faking.

    If the girl is caught with a fake ID, showing her as an adult, there should be no way to convict the man for under-aged sex. He was duped.

    As one of the Anons quoted said, it is no surprise that cops -- especially Japanese cops -- look after their own.

    Nothing new or surprising here.

    Humans are quick to find social groups and stick to them.

    I was thinking the other day about how all the different sections of the US armed forces hate each other, despite all being part of the same side.

    Humans just can't get along. It's really quite sad.

    Don't be fooled. The U.S. armed forces hate each other the way brothers & sisters hate each other: It's OK when they pick on each other, but an outsider just might catch a beat down.

    Over here one big service station/restaurant chain was giving considerable discount on coffee and donuts to cops, but they eventually had to stop it when people began to suspect that chain might thus get more police protection than competitors.

    13 is a young woman. They have traditionally been married off to middle-aged well-established men around that age in many cultures around the world as of the present day, and even in the west historically. The only reason that is not the case today is the influence of Victorian England, and the rise of feminism. 13 is not a child, they start bleeding at 10. They're readily able to give birth at 14. 18 = adult is pretty absurdly late, puritain/ victorian / feminazi influenced aoc.

    ". The only reason that is not the case today is the influence of Victorian England, and the rise of feminism. 13 is not a child, they start bleeding at 10. They're readily able to give birth at 14. 18 = adult is pretty absurdly late, puritain/ victorian / feminazi influenced aoc."

    In the civilized world we generally tend to think of sex involving full informed consent. It's not just sex BTW but many other things, such as driving a car, owning a gun/gun license, drinking alcohol, self taking of medication, etc. A 13 year old is simply not capable of thinking in abstract terms as the brain is not developed to this level yet, and does not have the insight or judgement skills to make the right decision in matters of sex, especially when there is a perceived or real difference in status between the participants - such as a 30 yr man and a 13 yr old child.

    To say this is due to feminism or Victorian ideology is false too because Victorian ideology was misogynistic and patriarchal, while feminazi ideology is the opposite. Also it is false because of the reason I mentioned above. 13 yr old children are not capable of full consent regarding sex.

    Yes marriages occurred at 12 and even 10 in the past, but consummation did not always occur at such a young age, life expectancy was shorter in the past with people generally living into their late 30s, and the world was different for a number of reasons. To suggest one should still follow stone age ideology NOW is to suggest that we should all be pagans - although looking at many scientists I have to say that paganism and cosmos worship is on the rise.

    Nowadays there is no sane reason for 13 yr olds to have sex and when they do, it is unfortunate. At least if they do it with kids similar to their age, it's understandable, but letting predators take advantage of neuro-cognitively undeveloped children is not what modern society is about. We may as well also take all your money and give it to the government because you suck, if we are to follow the logic of stronger party wins.

    Thirteen is the age of consent in most parts of Japan. It is only in paying for sex with one that is a crime. Paying an girl under 18 is considered child prostitution. Your argument is fallacious.

    "Victim"? Of what, going on a sex trade site willingly and arranging prostitution services by themselves? The only victim here is the cop who has to put up with the media circus over what should have been perfectly legal from the start.

    The Japanese have forums the girls age 11 to 14 prostitue themselves for on. Probably a deal like it on all border areas of countries where a 3rd or 4th world country is next to it as well all over the world. Getting caught as has been show is all to not paying the girl enough and she turns them in.

    Well, actually I kind of believe the cop, a month/few months ago SanCom had an article about 12/13 year olds who looked as if they were adult, due to overuse of make-up and clothing which is usually worn by adult women.
    Then, Japanese women often don't get very large breasts, so teenage sluts who want to make money have an advantage. Especially when making a lot of money they will be successful, as they will be able to buy expensive brand clothing, and look even more like adult women. And if they don't like you they'll try to make it look like rape/report that they were only underage
    Japanese girls sure are scary...
