IBM CEO Busted for Upskirt iPodomy

IBM Japan’s CEO has been unveiled as a sex criminal after he was caught putting his iPod up the skirt of an unsuspecting female victim, although IBM insists his abrupt resignation was due to “personal reasons” and refuses to comment on the fact it has apparently been under the control of a common chikan for the past 13 years.

According to police, 63-year-old  Takuma Otoshi, IBM Japan’s recently retired CEO, used an iPod to take upskirt videos of a woman riding an escalator at Yotsuya Station in Tokyo one morning.

A bystander spotted him and began berating him, whilst yet another tipped off station staff, who detained him as a chikan, at which point he admitted the offence.

Incriminating videos were also recovered from his iPod; he explained his crime to police by saying “I was interested in peeping.”

Police intend to prosecute him for voyeurism related offences under Tokyo’s anti-nuisance ordinances, commonly used to prosecute minor sex criminals.

However, they refrained from arresting him like any other non-civil servant “as he has a solid background and he is a low flight risk.”

Otoshi joined IBM Japan in 1971 and worked his way up the ranks, being promoted to CEO in 1999, a position which he held until his recent resignation, which supposedly has nothing to do with his arrest despite having occurred in the same month.

He also sits on the boards of a variety of universities and NPOs, and still holds the probable sinecure of “Supreme Advisor” at IBM. However, his profile page on IBM’s website has mysteriously disappeared.

IBM for its part is desperate to avoid commenting on the matter, having provided various reporters a litany of excuses: “he resigned due to personal circumstances,” “we don’t know the details,” “we are looking into the matter” and “as he has already resigned we wish to refrain from commenting on the matter.”

It is not clear to what extent he indulged such interests whilst holding his position, but given the nature of such pastimes a long-term interest is far from unlikely.

    What's with Japanese perverts and their willingness to confess so easily? Surely he could have at least kept his mouth shut until he could talk it out with his lawyer.

    Cause all Japanese are conformists, with no spine. Welcome to the land of the rising salaryman.

    I want to know how they got a look into his ipod. He should have denied them permission to do so, until he got his lawyer could be contacted.

    He's an IBM CEO, he can have as many gold digging women in their twenties as he'd like, but he takes upskirt pics on an escalator in public instead.

    He deserved this one, just as a punishment for stupidity.

    Maybe he did this exactly for the thrill and the possibility of getting caught. He has had a secure job with prospects for decades, so the man in him felt he needed to do something adventurous in his life, and being Japanese, this is the best and most natural thing he could come up with.

    This is a severe case of stupidity. Honestly, are upskirt shots really any kind of a turn on? I cannot imagine you would get a very good photo (unclear due to lack of light and focus).

    I've never understood that. I mean do they not allow two people to share the same checking or saving accounts in Japan? How does a single person gain complete control of the finances without gross, or in this case maybe "willing" negligence on the other's part?

    Considering how many stupid mistakes he did to allow himself to be caught, he deserves to be fired for the incompetence. The position of CEO demands foresight and cunning. This guy clearly lacks them.

    Yeah, the best trick is getting large shoes, putting a pinhole camera in them with a small hole in the toe, and just placing your foot under her. If you have a running laptop in your bag you can even take video that way!

    Why would he need a laptop? There are tons of spy cameras that record in 1280x720, that can easily be adapted for hidden use. And they all use MicroSD cards, so video length is not an issue. Just battery life.

    thats also a good point lol.

    but being a good perv doesn't necessarily translate into being a good ceo. in fact if your a good perv (like most of us) you're probably terrible at anything that requires effort and skill (like most of us)

    Thanks, asshole. I suppose you're the kind of man that would rape a woman because she says no, but she must think "fuck yes, I'm gonna get rape, this is the best day of my life"? If I ever see you, just hope I don't have a knife in my pocket.

    lol I knew that would piss someone off. I was waiting for it.

    Sorry I know it hard to face but its true. waayy too much supporting evidence. gotta get with the times.

    theres too many women who would say yes why bother with one who would say no. either way rape isn't my thing so your assuming is incorrect im afraid. too much energy wasted in rape. and Im famously known on sankaku for preferring 2d over real girls tyvm.

    Kinda true actually, you see women wearing short skirts with their panties visible, or tank tops that barely cover the boobs or being flirty for no reason

    He's the head of the Japan branch of one the world's premier technology companies and all he could muster for spy pics was an off the shelf device from one of his competitors...

    IBM does not compete with Apple you idiot. IBM pulled out of the consumer market long time ago. They deal with enterprise customers only.

    Funny that the smartest people usually got caught in the dumbest way. He could install a spy camera in his shoes for example. But no, maybe consumerism makes people dumber in the end.

    why would ibm not publicly say they kicked his ass out for this? wouldn't it be good publicity that they dont stand for this shit?

    that said, i see nothing really wrong with what he did.

    you wear a skirt you are asking for under where to be seen really.

    Can you imagine someone having to flee the country because they were so embarrassed at being caught taking an up-skirt shot? Apparently the Japanese police can.

    What does that tell us about society?

    Japanese are cowards, the police have little to do and the news will report anything for higher ratings.
