A 23-year-old man who made repeated proclamations that he would roast and burn to death little girls on a board has been arrested, we hear.
The charges he stands accused of are interfering with police duties, though it seems threats of cannibalistic murder might be a more appropriate charge. Variously he said: “They’ll be delicious”, “I’ll go to an elementary school tomorrow at 11 and roast to death little girls”
He denies the charges, saying pathetically: “When I said little girls, I was actually referring to young lancefish”.
This requires a brief explanation: the phrase he uses, 小女子 / kounago, could be read either as meaning “young lancefish” (eaten in Japan), or literally as little girl. Since he actually says “I’ll go to an elementary school and roast to death little girls”, his denial rings rather hollow, for several reasons which are plain to see (such as the fish already being dead, or the obvious red flag of doing it at a school). Police at any rate are not amused.
