Teacher Gets Off Inserting Camera Into JS BNKI

shino by osaru

The outrageous behaviour of Shiga prefecture teachers is again in the news after one of their number managed to get caught “testing” his miniature camera in the female toilet at his elementary school.

The Shiga prefecture elementary school reports that a 5th year girl discovered a miniature camera discretely installed in the female toilets with tape on morning.

She reported her discovery, and fortunately the school’s investigative prowess was largely unchallenged as the teacher responsible promptly cracked and admitted to the principal that “I wanted to test using my camera for the first time – I’d like to apologise to the children.”

Supposedly he did not succeed in capturing any images of the girls.

He had only returned to work in April, after 9 months off due to a “mental illness.”

Police apparently searched his residence with his consent in relation to possible charges of criminal trespass, but despite his admission of guilt have not charged him with any criminal offence.

The local school superintendent has apologised to parents and “would like to work towards regaining trust,” but failed to state what action – if any – would be taken against the teacher.

A similar case in the same prefecture in 2008 – coincidentally involving a perpetrator who was then 39 – saw a middle school teacher arrested after sneaking into his own school late at night in order to steal the uniforms, socks and bags of his female pupils, 25 items in all, in an incident which came to light after he was found to have wired his own classroom with no less than 7 cameras in order to record them changing.

In that case the local school board condemned his actions as “unbecoming a teacher” and promised to work to prevent any future occurrence – although earlier in the same year they sacked another one of their employees after “repeatedly warning” him to stop taking upskirt photographs of local students, promising that “in future, we will take severe action to prevent these incidents.”

2010 saw yet another teacher in the prefecture sacked for using a pen camera to violate the dignity of his female students some 20 times, and again in 2012 a 53-year-old teacher was suspended for 6 months because he thought a girl in a shop “wouldn’t notice” him sticking his mobile phone between her legs.

Such antics would pale in comparison to the national scandal which ensued when the prefecture’s teachers were complicit in one of their students being hounded into suicide in 2012 – though it seems the prefecture’s wayward teachers are already back to form.

    Well, if it is a part of Japan’s culture, then it is okay of course. All real japs know that.
    If you want to fix Japan’s culture, you’d have to destroy all cute and/or hentai anime and manga produced there and ban it forever. Because, promoting perversion in any form, especially in such gigantic masses, really is not good. People are made to think that 2D girls are the real deal and never think, that one toon character is made look and behave cute by ~7 different people. They deny the reality, especially the fact that in reality, ideals are legends.
    But of course, you will never do that. So, keep on enjoying all these sexual harassments everywhere, because it is what You really want.

    If a teacher did this kind of thing in any country other than Japan, they would be sacked and subject to criminal charges. What’s with Japan? Nothing ‘bad’ ever happens – just ‘regrettable incidents’.

    “he thought a girl in a shop “wouldn’t notice” him sticking his mobile phone between her legs”
    -> that made me laugh

    On topic… well, it appears that there are a lot of similar cases. In the end it’s only a couple teachers per year. Compared to the whole population that’s not much…

    It could also be possible that it’s not pedophiles choosing a job as a teacher, but people turning into pedophiles after becoming a teacher. Well, both exist.
    A teacher is surrounded by young “innocent” girls all day. They see them in uniform and sometimes even sports wear or mizugi. Teachers don’t have much free time or a private life. AFAIK Japanese teachers have LOTS of work. Couple that with frustration, depression, loneliness (many are single)… or they have money-hungry, cheating, old bitches at home^^
    Over time the teachers get fascinated with the school girls and then shit happens

    Oh, he totally loved anime and manga right? All pedo teachers do, right? Putting more and more restrictions on the media will prevent these things from happening in the future, even more than putting the fear of punishment into them would…. riiiight?

    Principal: Nijima-san! Or should I say, lolicon-sensei? Hehe. Come now, you must be a little kinder to your students… taking pictures of them on the toilet is unbecoming of a teacher, you know? Take that camera home and lay off the manga, ok? It’s the manga that’s brainwashing you, it’s no good! See you tomorrow, you creepy bastard, you! ^_^

    You know what? How could he even want to show his own face at that school again? Please tell me the children aren’t already “polite” enough not to make fun of him to his face for being a teacher known for trying to take pictures of girls on the toilet…. they’ve gotta give him a stupid nick name to taunt him with, at least.

          You clearly don’t understand that language isn’t static. Where it came from or what used to mean isn’t what it is now.

          loli =/= lolita

          shota =/= shotaro

          as

          original meaning of tsundere =/= nowadays meaning

          Also, you didn’t explain anything. You just stated something as if it were undoubtedly true without any reference from third parties and linked a wikipedia page anyone could have written and doesn’t even back your argument.

          Even more, you dismiss my rebuttal without giving any reason as to why it isn’t valid and quickly return to the starting point of your first statement, again without any argument.

          If you really think that you are right, you should at the very least show a reason with proper arguments. That and rebut without just saying “that isn’t true”.

          @22:34 – How the word camera came from the word chamber is completely different from how loli’s origins ultimately came from nymphet, and I explained how basically nymphet is the english word for a loli because loli was first used to refer to a girl who would be called a nymphet in english. It’s more like a translation than anything else, like how anime = cartoons.

          loli = Lolita, who was a nymphet, so it only makes sense…

          just like how shota = Shotaro (from Tetsujin 28-Go aka Gigantor)

          Loli =/= Nymphet

          “It comes from that, then it means the same”.
          Completely illogical reasoning.

          The word “camera”, for example, comes from “chamber” in latin. According to your logic, everybody who says camera must be actually referring to a room, and if not, they are using the word wrongly.

          @16:35 – I didn’t mean that prepubescent girls or girls starting puberty don’t count as lolis. What I meant is that loli is more about appearance than age, whereas 21:47 strictly said “It only says that you like girls from 8-12”, which I didn’t agree with…
          Your “official definition” is based on the novel “Lolita”, and as you said the girl is 12. So you could define loli as ~12 years of age, which is the beginning of puberty… on the other hand ages 8-10 are definitely NOT puberty, making those girls a different classification: 8-10 (pedophilia), 11-14 (hebephilia)

          In the end this discussion doesn’t matter. Japanese don’t really care about a “Lolita” novel from the West.. everyone has their own definition of loli(con)… I simply didn’t agree with the 8-12 year thing (should be 8-*, * being based on outer appearance)… and I also believe that most Western anime fans and lolicon(hater) define loli more on appearance… but who cares?

          @22:10 – the term originated from Lolita, the novel, and the girl in it who’s 12 years old and in english terms is refered to as a “nymphet”. Loli is basically the japanese word for a nymphet, which is a girl in the earliest stages of puberty (which is usually during the ages of 9 to 14). I would think the age, just a number, wouldn’t have as much importance as what is happening during that age… so if a character is 1000 years old but has all the features of a girl in the earliest stages of puberty, she’s still a loli. The earliest stages of puberty are decribed as being normally 9 to 14… I’m sure a girl that is a year early or a year late (or stuck perpetually in that state for 1000 years) is still going to count.

          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nubile#Nymphet

          There is a clear cut definition, and there it is. But for some reason people all over the internet try to make up their own to suit their own causes…

          22:10 is right.
          I don’t really like kids. Girls look like boys at that age, no curves at all.
          I prefer more curvy girls, albeit petite with a cute face.
          Luckily Anime lolis cater to my preferences. That’s why I like 2D lolis but not 3D lolis.

          Erm… lolicon has nothing to do with age -_- It’s the attraction towards lolitas, meaning females that are small, petite and young looking. That has nothing to do with 8-12 year olds. I’d even go as far and say that lolicon rather target 12-15 year olds. But as I said, even a 30 year old woman can be considered loli…

    Japan is so screwed… No wonder their students come out so fucked up–it’s because they have people in the school that is already fucked up teaching them. The school rules and the laws that protects teachers from such acts should all be demolished and destroyed. And instead of being suspended and sacked, they should be shafted and thrown into prison.

    And Japan’s parents are too ignorant to even care to take any sort of action against the school and their government.

    I’ve heard enough of the same shit from you Japan…

    It ought to be criminal in it’s self to allow this guy to go without punishment of any kind. How can they just tell him to pack it up and not do it again then trust him to being trustworthy in the future? Honestly, to think he’ll never be a problem to them after that is completely naive and even idiotic.

    • Japan has this really backwards system where admitting guilt gets you in a lot less trouble than not admitting it, to the extent that accused people often admit to crimes they didn’t commit because the punishment would be less for if they were found guilty. Also, Japanese prosecutors have waaaay more power than defense lawyers so only about 1% of court proceedings end in a ‘not guilty’ verdict, either because of the abuse of power from the prosecutor or the accused pleading guilty for a lesser sentence rather than taking that 1% gamble. It’s pretty fucked up if you ask me.

      They always arrest the wrong teachers, arresting only the wonderful female teachers that found romance with their students, like Mary Kay Letourneau, that can only be found in manga.

        Even the last case where it was a young man in his 20s with one JC girl, where it could have actually been a romantic relationship despite the age difference, got more punishment than this.

        Maybe it’s the perversion that makes it ok…? In Japan, at least.

        But you’re mixing non-Japanese cases into this, which is making it more difficult……

        He violated the privacy, trust, and rights of innocent people. I’m not even going to go into that fact that these were female children.

        I’m on here constantly defending the free expression of lolicon, and even consensual sex of underage people, but there’s no way to defend this. This guy is just a scumbag that really should be punished to the full extent of the law.

        I wouldn’t want my genitals being filmed in such a shady way without my knowledge for his sexual gratification or for the potential sale and/or distribution. Would you?

    Oh Lord, why did you punish such fine teachers, such as Mary Kay Letourneau and similar, and let these sort of teachers of the hook. Oh lord, I refuse to understand how these rules at all.

      Thank you for your insight. I have always wondered how a loose cannon like Mark Latham was made leader and now it is explained, the old payback.
      What small minded people, hate makes of us all.
      And as for Latham, here was a man who called George W. the worst president ever ( he was right there) and then knocked people over in the stampede to shake his hand.
      Obviously a man of no substance which explains his weathervane approach to policies.
      However, as a political commentator I find Mark both refreshing and entertaining. A candid breath of fresh air who, because of his perceived ill-treatment by the ALP, is even-handed in his commentary, unlike the hacks like Kroger, Reith and Costello who just read from the prayer book and spout propoganda, thus dismissing their own credibility of argument.

      Yes, I refuse to understand how school’s rules are so retarded as to not accept an atmosphere closer to a top level romance anime rather than allow such teachers exist and close to a hell on earth anime.
