“I Was Busted for Upskirt Photography”

Whilst often reported tersely in newspaper stories the nation over, the crimes of petty perverts are rarely reported from the perpetrator’s perspective – the below interview seeks to rectify this, asking a voyeur jailed for taking upskirt photos of girls about his motivations and techniques…

The exchange, between the convicted pantsu peeper and various denizens of 2ch:

Fined $3,500.

How old? Job?

27, IT. Lost my job because of all this. Wasn’t dismissed though – just had to quit for other reasons.

What did you snap?

Upskirts in a Shinjuku department store.

What now?

I’ll be a NEET as I have some savings.

After 3 months I can go on the dole and that’ll pay my rent… then I might look for a new job.

My real name was reported, but it’s the same as a sportsman so if I’m Googled it should be OK.

You habitual?

This was my first time getting caught. But as for upskirts, I’ve been doing it since high school.

So it’s the excitement of the criminal act?

Well, you watch it on Winny and so on, but it’s totally different. Taking the pictures and then taking them home to check if it went well is incredibly exciting.

As far as crimes go, taking upskirt pics is about the most pathetic one out there, honestly.

Yeah, I couldn’t even tell the other people in the cell what I was in for. Told them it was for fraud. Some old guy in for assault told me I was pretty good at lying…

You’re a total tool. Don’t you think it was inexcusable?

Well, I’ll stick with downloading movies for a bit.

For a bit? You’re going to do it again?

When I used a pinhole lens I was never caught, so when things have cooled off I might try that again. For some sad virgin like me, that’s all I have to live for.

Why were you caught?

Basically because I was fiddling with the camera. I wouldn’t get near to the subject, but soon its boyfriend came out of the toilet and started watching me, and I got caught.

You made the news? Local newspaper?

Yomiuri I think. On the 30th page of Google at the moment.

They print your face? If you’ve been at since high school I bet you are grotesquely ugly.

Just the name. My face is a real eyesore. I’m a rank virgin. Seeing this girl I liked go home with a nice looking girl, and then seeing an upskirt video, were the impetus. It’s all her fault.

Tell us how you were caught.

I was peeping. → Boyfriend came out of toilet: “What the hell do you think you’re doing?” → My lens was discovered → 119 →I though I’d run off but her boyfriend was huge and then 3 police came → I was taken to the station.

My friend was busted recently. What happens with the arrest process, how long until you get to speak to counsel?

In my case:

Arrest, prosecution, detention (20 days), simple trial, fine, release. Maybe if you apply for counsel you can get it any time, I don’t know.

What did your parents say?

Mother: I’ll keep giving you an allowance so keep at it!

Father: Well, if you do that you’ll end up caught.

Honestly I think they are spoiling me a bit with level of niceness.

Your parents are total scum aren’t they?

How were you caught? I want to try so give me some tips.

Warnings:

Never make eye contact with the subject.

Avoid trains – no place to run if caught.

Use a pinhole camera, they sell them in Akiba.

Do it in a spot where it’s natural for people to stand, like the back of a conbini.

Was this a fine plus jail or…?

Fine only… I thought I’d be given a suspended sentence or something as it was a first offence, but when they saw the size of my collection it became a fine.

I’m guessing the boyfriend was the worst part…

It was harsh. He was holding me with one arm whilst he abused me, and worse yet everyone was looking at me.

Didn’t you want to run?

The boyfriend was hard, then shop employees came and surrounded me and I couldn’t get to the elevator. I’ve actually been caught and run off OK four times before.

[…]

I had 120 tapes of an hour each. They were all confiscated and that was a bigger shock than being arrested!

You ever do it on a loli? What age ranges?

Not interested in them. My strike zone is middle school girls to house wives.

You’re really weird, treating this like it was nothing. I’d be considering suicide.

I’ve got savings, my real name’s relatively safe on Google, and I quit myself. Those are the reasons. If it was the first hit on Google I might have killed myself by now.

You don’t regret it at all, do you?

Not really. I’m scum, and nobody really got hurt, or something like that.

Thank you all for sticking with a lowlife like me for so long.
