Cops Charge Woman For Killing Her Rapist

A woman who fatally stabbed the man who was trying to rape her with his own knife after seizing it from him is being charged with manslaughter despite police conceding it “may have been justifiable self-defence,” and the fact they intend to charge the dead man with attempted rape.

According to police, a woman in her late teens was jogging by a river in Tokyo’s Adachi city at 10PM when an unidentified man his fifties ambushed her with a knife.

He pushed her down and began kissing her and touching her body, but put his knife down in order to do so.

The woman seized her chance and his knife, and stabbed him in the thigh and then made good her escape, seeking help from a passing man who summoned police.

Her assailant meanwhile bled to death from the wound she inflicted over a period of 90 minutes, being pronounced dead on his arrival at hospital.

The woman says she “grabbed the man’s knife when I saw a chance, stabbed him in the thigh and then ran.”

Bizarrely, police say they are planning to charge the dead man with “attempted rape or indecent assault.”

Even more bizarrely, they are planning on charging the woman with manslaughter – though they have announced they will not be charging her with murder, and that her punishment may be reduced if it is found she acted in justifiable self-defence, they still apparently intend to prosecute the victim.

The unsympathetic treatment the woman has received at the hands of police has many Japanese outraged:

“Come on, this is obviously self-defence!”

“Why didn’t they charge the rapist with attempted murder for threatening to use a knife on her!?”

“Japan, where it is a crime not to go along with the wishes of the criminal…”

“Jogging in Adachi at 10PM, reckless indeed!”

“Why haven’t they reported this guy’s name and occupation?”

“Probably because he was a Korean…”

“What the hell are the police doing charging this poor woman!?”

“Good riddance to the sex criminal swine she offed. Poor lady.”

“She could have just threatened him with it and ran off!”

“I expect they will drop the charges or otherwise fail to prosecute.”

“I think the police are just prosecuting as a matter of formality, she’ll just be acquitted in any trial.”

“Right, just because they are prosecuting now doesn’t mean they won’t just drop the charges afterwards.”

“Come on, prosecuting isn’t the same as a guilty verdict. The police aren’t the ones who should decide whether something like this is justifiable self-defence, the courts are!”

“It seems the only living witness to the incident is the woman so their caution is understandable.”

“Since they have only her word that she really didn’t know this man at all, it could always be something else.”

“A lot of rapists get away with it and their victims stay quiet – good for her that she put a stop to this one!”

“She acted with restraint – stabbing him in the thigh and not somewhere else, and probably thinking he wouldn’t die from an injury like that.”

“Just her luck that she scored a critical hit on an artery.”

“Considering the circumstances she may have been aiming somewhere else but missed…”

    So, in Japan... if there is a rapist who want to rape you, you better to be RAPED than a self defense because self defense is a CRIME.

    A rape fetish, as sickening as it is to most people, is one thing. To actually go out and rape someone is a horrible thing. I don't have any sympathy for the rapist, or any rapist who ends up in a similar position.

    Actually, 04:32, it is not sickening to most people. Most people have a 'big deal, I have sexual acts that I like and other people don't!' viewpoint on that.

    Gonna go "tinfoil hat" on you for a second, but:

    Governments don't want people to be able to defend themselves or take care of themselves. Government wants people to be solely dependent on them, to the point that they would let a rapist have their way because "my government and police will do something about it".

    In someways, we're already trained like good lap dogs to just sit about, because we've been trained to not do anything. We're constantly now telling eachother:
    "I can't do anything. I'm just one person. They'll lock me up if I don't cooperate with them." Says thousands of people around the world.
    In reality, we don't need the government to survive, the government needs us to survive. So shit like this, better to be raped than self defending resulting in a crime, you're seeing all around, and no country is immune from it.

    You can take off your tinfoil hats now.

    Reminds me of the manga "Sex Slave System Chronicle" where schoolgirls undergo "rape training" in one chapter. It's only common courtesy to remove your panties for your rapist if you don't want them to get torn...

    Must say that although in this case it seems clear that the girl should walk free (and hopefully will), there is obviously a question on what one can do in the name of self defense.

    For instance in Finland the law does hold the self defense clause, but it is not a "do what you want" clause, but rather a clause meant to protect the victim from being prosecuted of causing harm while in the act of self defense. It would not, however, protect someone who shot to death a burglar as clearly the situation wasn't life threatening (as long as the burglar wasn't trying to kill the man, that is), thus one does not get to "up the ante" and kill the man for trying to cause material instead of bodily harm.

    ie. Though a criminal (or soon to be, after being convicted), the person committing the crime does still have human rights. This is a lot more than some people are willing to admit, but hey, that's just politics then.

    In Japan rape is just like saying "Hi, how are you doing today!"

    I swear everytime I read the original sentence, it seems like the man was trying to rape her to death.

    A little punctuation can make all the difference in the world...

    I think it should read like this, "A woman who stabbed a man, who was trying to rape her, to death with his own knife..."

    You can always add more sentences, you know?

    “A woman is being charged with manslaugther for stabbing a man, despite police conceding it “may have been justifiable self-defence” and the fact they intend to charge the dead man with attempted rape. The woman stabbed the man with the man’s own knife when he was trying to rape her to death.”

    But why are they charging him with rape? It seems a bit pointless, given that he is, in fact, dead.

    That's actually terrible grammatically though. I'm not insulting you since I actually naturally do that. I'm just having to retrain myself to not do it, because if you actually read back what you wrote there are a lot of stops and it actually takes more energy to think through the sentence and read it than if it had been arranged without commas.

    Sorry to be insulting, putting an infinitive before expressing a motion is kind of dumb. it will always be hard to read and annoying to say. This was all "failure of lack of vocabulary." =)

    The "stops" are trained. in German for example the suggested commas would be mandatory and do not suggest a strong break in the sentence. In English the use of commas is very limited though so people are used to them implying a "stop" so this messes up the usual processing.

    She was stabbing him for 90 minutes straight?... Clearly has mental issues. (sarcasm)

    The question that hasn't been answered is how long did it take the police to respond and how long before the bleeding rapist got some first aid?

    90 minutes is a long time over which to bleed out. Didn't anyone have a handkerchief or a T-shirt for a bandage?

    I think it took them 90 minutes to respond. If she cut his femoral artery (the only way he could have bled to death from a thigh wound), he would have been dead in a matter of minutes.

    "...but rapists have AIDS, yo. Leave that shit to the professionals." - said the gawking public

    Seriously, I don't actually have a problem with this story. It's the woman's story vs a corpse. The police should do an investigation to determine what happened. If her story changes after being charged, something may be fishy.

    Knowing Japan, he probably didn't pay her enough for the sex, so she stabbed him and ran.

    He's right though. Who said she didn't lie?

    Her assailant meanwhile bled to death from the wound she inflicted over a period of 90 minutes, being pronounced dead on his arrival at hospital.

    Ok, believable.

    The woman says she “grabbed the man’s knife when I saw a chance, stabbed him in the thigh and then ran.”

    She knows kung-fu??? Yah right.

    The proper term is Martial Arts, you uncultured swine. And for all anyone knows, she could know some material of doing so. Either that, or she's pretty damn bold. Not everyone on the street that knows some Martial Arts will immediately step up and say all their degrees and disciplines. As far as the potential rapist goes, he deserves to get stabbed. Hell the bitches deserve some good amount of pain. If I had the option, every thief that would try to rob my store would come out with one less hand.

    Bad translation what they meant is it took him 90 minutes to bleed to death from his wound which means he didn't seek medical attention right away.

    Or was left on the curb to die by the 'victim' who felt it wasn't necessary to call the cops/ambulance.

    It's possible police didn't expect rapist still to be there, so they took their sweet time getting there, because no rush.
    They found him dead, likely because no one provided him with aid for more than an hour.

    So they have corpse, and because guy was alive when police was called, someone is at fault here. And there's no way in hell police will take blame for it.

    being pronounced dead on his arrival at hospital

    I.e. ambulance arrived before he died, but maybe hospital was far enough or something, so he died just before they arrived to hospital.

    19:42 hit in on the head. The police were apparently slow to respond here, this was just a case of them allowing someone to die because they did not respond quickly enough.

    Though, perhaps that was the whole point?

    Actually, she sought help immediately. The police were slow to respond. Maybe THEY should be charged for negligence.

    She only stabbed him once.

    The criminal deserved to bleed out, for being too stupid to wrap his belt or shirt tightly around his leg.

    read carefully please, "stabbed him in the thigh and then made good her escape" ... "bled to death from the wound she inflicted over a period of 90 minutes"

    she didn't stab him for 90 minutes, she just stab once then ran away, while it took 90 minutes for him to die.

    Not that I'm an expert on the exact topic, but for some people who rape others it's about the humiliation of the victim and their suffering.

    Corpses feel neither.

    Yes, I'm a terrible person for making light of this. What can I say, I'm a sociopath.
