Cops Arrest Man For Wearing Leotard

Police have arrested a man for the apparent crime of wearing a pink leotard in the middle of Shinjuku.

The man announced his intention to take an afternoon stroll in Shinjuku wearing his pink leotard, and gamely posted some pics of his svelte posing and fine physique:

However, police promptly detained him:

Just why he was arrested is not clear – and since he was apparently not up to anything suspect at all, his case has aroused some sympathy online as yet another likely case of police overreach:

“Just taking a stroll in a leotard is enough to get you arrested nowadays!?”

“Why he do this? Why they arrest him?”

“I quite like idiots like this…”

“Take him to the hospital!”

“Think of his poor family.”

“I don’t get it. What crime is this supposed to be exactly?”

“What are the charges!? Don’t we have the freedom to wear what we want!”

“It’s not like anything was showing.”

“Honestly I don’t see what the problem is here.”

“I don’t know what his objective was, but it does look like it was achieved.”

“How is this any different to what any famous dancer does in public? I think he deserves his freedom of expression.”

“I don’t get how the sling bikini one is safe but this is out. Location?”

“Well, that is the beach. I guess wearing only a swimsuit in public elsewhere gets you arrested.”

“I think they took him away for voluntary questioning, so it may be that it is not illegal.”

“If they arrest someone for this, can’t they do something about that guy in his fifties who dresses as a pink lolita in Tama centre?”

“What about the guy who dresses in serafuku?”

“This one is just your average hentai. Arresting him is going too far.”

With Japan being a nation in which police can apparently arrest even the customers of a strip club for merely being in attendance whilst “soaplands” and “delivery health” services go unmolested in favour of crackdowns on private orgies and humble nudists, to say certain degree of arbitrariness appears to be in play would be an understatement.

Obvious parallels between his case and that of the sling bikini beach exhibitionist have been also drawn, but although in that case police stalked the individual in question, they did not got so far as to take them away.

    Incorrect. They would arrest every man in the 5km radius instead.

    Then they would have questioned the loli in the middle of the radius?

    FFXV... so, why don't they arrest Nomura then? He hurt my eyes and poisoned my mind with his character designs. I'm in need for a therapist and "life counseling" with my imouto, thanks to THAT man!

    I totally agree. My characters in fantasy games should be wearing things like t-shirts and jeans. Heck, I'd even allow a fancy jacket if it's the main character. This way I can better relate to them while they do normal things like fight giant behemoths and lich kings with their superhuman powers.

    Honestly, any sense of creativity in these games, whether it be expressed through hair or fashion really scare me. After all, I'm an archaic person so I find anything beyond the norms of my society to be weird and gay...you know, in the archaic sense.

    I could go on but I think people get the point. Everyone is entitled to an opinion so I shall also voice mine. Keep fantasy out of my fantasy!

    I'm not saying he's incompetent or his designs are bad... but I still grew to dislike most of them. The clothes are too weird and gay (in the archaic sense). Hair styles are meh. Faces look bland. Guys are either too slim or tall and muscular, there is no variety. Girls are basically copy-paste, except for small details, hair and colors...
    IMO he should tone down on the "uniqueness" and not make all these weird looking characters. And concerning clothing, they shouldn't be fashion models... just give them some more normal clothes.

    I am fine with the cloth design, but the face.. I prefer a handsome man rather than beautiful looking man.

    Haha I don't give a shit what you people say and the useless content of your post I just love people going out of their way to post comments about me on topics I've ignored. And getting the top votes at that! Shows so many people are thinking about me, remember me, and have been impacted by me lmao. How many of you scroll down every post to see if theres a 2D Revolution post from me on it? LOL! Unlike you people my internet feelings don't get hurt so I can restrain myself and not care about what your opinions are in your post. Unfortunately you can't do that with me because my words cut deep and breech the innermost parts of your psyche. As a result the bitterness and butthurtness Ive made you feel in the past carries on in your heart topic after topic lol and you post my name on things I haven't any said anything about. You can't stop thinking about me! You make me blush. People curse me out all the time and by the next topic I've completely forgotten about your existence. Often if a registered member says something funny on a new post I support them even if they called me retarded in the past showing their words had no effect and/or that I didn't bother to remember their names. But you bitches are going to remember me forever aren't you lol. If I've hurt you, you whiny femimen need to get over it and move on hahah. Your "retard!" and "shame on your parents!" and recycled internet memes fall on deaf ears and are only useful in contrasting my superior intelligence.
    Thank you for proving my words have lasting effects. :)

    its a man and no kid. i can see his "dick" or genitals as i prefer to write in the pink leotard very clearly. in the other leotard where he "goes down" to the yellow bowl or something. his genitals are allmost not seeable... but i would still assume its a man... just look at his body stature... even in the vinegar leotard its clearly a man even if his genitals are "supressed" or something ^^

    Dick would be clearly visible in that even if soft as a marshmallow. What that guy has isn't deserving of being called a dick. It would be a shame to call what he has the same as what most healthy men call theirs. What he has is an enlarged clitoris. Not a dick. I would understand if he chose to stuff with a sock.

    the police say the vinegar is a weapon that can be used to hurt then, but is only used against the effect of the tear gas and pepper spray

    Tbh, the ppl they arrest protestants that were carrying vinegar in the recent manifestations.

    The "reason" given by the officers was that: "It can be confused with alcohol, that is used to lit trash and cars on fire".

    It was not a "totally random" arrest.
