Samaritan Arrested for Helping Lost Little Girl


A man (20) who helped a lost and tearful little girl (6) find her way to her grandmother’s distant abode has been arrested for child kidnapping, we hear.

The girl had apparently been scolded by her mother and was tearfully malingering in the street on afternoon. At this point the man passed by, and asked the little girl what the matter was.

She responded “I want to go to granny who lives in Misato City’s house”, with this being some 11km distant. The good Samaritan opted to take her with him in that direction.

Upon arrival, as the girl did not know the address of her grandmother, he called upon a police office in the vicinity of the station there.

Police immediately deemed him suspect, all the more so for having the little girl in his car,and promptly arrested him for abducting the girl.

The kidnapper says of his crime: “There was a little girl crying, so I asked what the matter was. She said she wanted to go to her granny in Misato’s, so I took her with me as I was headed over that way”.

It appears the girl had been scolded by her mother over the unspecified matter of a textbook, and became upset and left her house alone.

Via Itainews.

2channers are alternating between decrying the entrenchment of apathy, and ridiculing the man for not keeping his nose out of matters not his concern.

Some do however raise the point that he might have done better to inform police of the girl’s predicament.

Even this might have been too much for police though; we hear a tale from one poster saying that he was arrested for going shopping with his own young daughter, with police grilling him for hours and unable to believe a father would do such a thing – he was only rescued when his wife was urgently summoned to the station…

    Ever touch a little girl, you will be arrested.
    Ever talk to a girl, you will be jailed.
    Ever dates a woman, you will be shot.

    Everything planned by the feminists, everything so organized.

    This is like the total opposite of any anime I have ever seen; where the main character and the bimbo he's with help some little kid find her parents, making the two have an even stronger bond in an already sickeningly affectionate relationship. See, real life sucks, that's why i watch anime and play halo all day.

    What about the last episode of GSZS, where Sensei finds loli Kafuka and decides to take her to a police box, only to get accused of kidnapping?

    Well, we don't know how this guy looks and talks like, some people just make others suspicious.

    On the other hand, there was a serial killer who talked cops into giving him his victim back.

    they are being too sensitive
    i guess it is still a good thing
    because here, police are the second most corrupt followed by politicians
    there, they are doing their job

    They ought to be grateful. Better him helping the kid out than her being kidnapped by a molester and raped. I'd think he was a little beyond suspicion since he was openly asking police in that district for help. Child kidnappers don't usually approach POLICE for help. Or so I hear.

    He should of called the Police instead of trying to take the girl to her grandma's house, however the Police were overly sensitive in arresting him. I say, both sides were at fault.

    I disagree. Nobody's perfect; the poor chap might not have been prepared for a situation like this, or just caught up in the spur of the moment. You can't expect everyone to robotically react with "OH I KNOW, I'LL CALL THE LOCAL POLICE STATION." Japan has a 911 I assume? Bottomline is, its wrong to fault a samaritan that makes a sub-optimal choice in handling the situation, specially when theres no fatality/trauma involved.

    All the japanese police needs now is some common sense. This guy drove up to a police station with the girl ffs. What they should've done is:

    1.Inspect the girl for any obvious signs of abuse/trauma.
    2.Escort the samaritan's car to girl's house, or, take samaritan and girl in a police car to girl's house to check on any foul play.

    No policeman is perfect, but given that they've to go through god damn police school and supposedly trained/prepared for these situations, they're pretty much expected to handle it prudently.

    You are all forgetting something. In Japan there is a "proper" way to do EVERYTHING. Even rescues must be done according to "proper" standards. Remember when you meet someone new in Japan you are suppose to bow. This cultural emphasis on "properness" has rubbed off onto some of their laws. That is, not only must you do the right thing (rescue someone) but you must do it in the "proper" way (that is calling the authorities, and NOT conducting the rescue yourself), or else you are committing a crime. It's as simple as that.

    Yep, except that the "proper" thing it's not ALWAYS the correct thing to do. That's why the Japanese are so buttlicking to each other.

    I think the society is too sensitive when grow up male helping or just talk to little gal..If this happened to me, I'll find female or police right away for help....
    Other man arrested because shopping with his young daughter???may be every father need some ID or paper to prove their relationship when they hang up & keep saying " she is my daughter" when they are walking......

    It's really disgusting how the pedophilia problem in Japan is so out of control that the police need to be that cautious.

    I mean it may seem extreme to some of you, but with things as bad as they are it's not being overly cautious to think that maybe the man is trying to drive the girl someplace bad and that he's just talking to the police to put her at ease, to erase her doubts of him being a bad stranger.

    There was no reason for the man to associate himself with the girl to that extent. When he saw her alone and everything he should have called the police immediately and had them take care of it.

    What's the difference? Presumably he's still going to stay with the girl to keep her safe until the police arrive, at which point they still arrest him for being in the presence of a little girl.

    If you go by the statistics, problems with "child abuse" (clearly the definition also varies from country to country) in Japan are actually far less than in most developed countries....

    More like reported child abuse is lower.

    Sexual offenses are more rarely reported in Japan due to their culture.

    Here's what I say:

    Child abuse rates are even higher in Western countries, compared to Japan, than the statistics say. If the statistics say it's 3 times more common, it's probably more like 10 times in reality.
    Because Western culture practically makes it mandatory *not* to report child abuse. I have absolutely no evidence to back this up, but I just *know* Western culture. Hey, I have lived in Western countries for almost all of my life - I'm a bona fide expert! My wild guesses thus demolish any fancy hard data anybody comes up with!

    "When the data contradict my prejudices, the data are obviously in error." Jesus foxtrotting Christ! I can't stand this crap anymore.

    Very true (and likely), but then there are no #s to support the idea that it's a substantially bigger problem in Japan than other developed nations.

    Even doubling (tripling?) the report # still falls short of say, America's reported cases, and it isn't too much of a stretch to think that Japan, a country with such ludicrously small # of crimes (of all sorts) compared to Western countries would have less incidents.

    Such a stark contrast from just reading about Japan's group and shame culture.

    Looks like Japan is now all about the shame with none of the "group".

    Where's all this lovey dovey "we're all in this together" group culture mentality? This is like Christianity with the judgmental God only and with the redemption and salvation.

    Well I guess that depends on the situation. The lesson for this story, don't help little girls, especially if you are a grown-up, that will only give you trouble.
