Yasuhiro Honda, a 40 year old Yokohama bureaucrat, decided to board a train drunk as hell and allegedly he molested a high school girl. A boy on the train kicked his sweetie ass and turned him in to investigators.
He was charged with creating a nuisance. Creating a nuisance? For molesting a teenager in public? I would think a harsher charge would be dealt, but such is not the case in the land of the rising sun.
My friend once told me that this sort of behavior happens all the time there. She lived in Japan for years. She was on a train once and a man started to grope her. Her father intervened and the man took off. She stated she witnessed women getting groped on trains quite a few times.
And you wonder how they come up with anime that has monsters with numerous tentacles penetrating young girls.
