“I like young girls and have flashed them for the past four years”

Wow, this Japanese guy simply has no shame. From Japan Today:

“A 24-year-old man was arrested on Wednesday for flashing an 18-year-old high school girl in the corridor of an apartment in Katsushika, Tokyo, police said Friday. Akihiro Fujita was arrested after flashing the girl around 3:20 p.m. when she was coming home on the 2nd floor of the apartment block. The girl called police and Fujita, who was loitering in the area, was arrested.

Fujita was quoted by police as saying, ‘I like young girls and have flashed them for the past four years to release my stress. I also get a kick out of seeing the surprised look on their faces.’

Police said 40 similar cases have been reported in the neighboring area this year, but Fujita has only admitted to nine cases.”

So many harassers are repeat offenders like this guy and that’s why reporting them can be such a powerful step toward ending this problem. Think about it, one guy alone has harassed/traumatized at least nine girls, has probably made all of their friends frightened or nervous too, and obviously he has no intention of stopping. Hopefully whatever his punishment was (this article is actually several months old) will deter him in the future….

Oh and, 40 reported cases of flashing in that neighborhood in a year?! That’s definitely when it’s time for some community action to stop it and make the neighborhood safer!!

Related: in looking for an image to go with this post, I came across a blog post about crime prevention for school girls:

“Summer vacation is about to begin, so the school and local police held the [screaming] contest to help teach the girls to make some noise if they run into suspicious individuals. A little gadget measured the decibel levels of their shrieks and shouts for help. (According to the report, a 90 decibel scream is required to scare off an attacker.)”

Thoughts?

    Normal people find other ways of relieving stress! The culprit is far from normal. He’s a sick individual.

    As for screaming classes, I think that’s a great idea. Women and girls are taught to be quiet and not to make a sound, and something like this will break that quiet conditioning. We need something like this in the States!

    Once, a man groped me on the street. Instead of being quiet, I turned around and screamed. It wasn’t a shriek, but closer to the shouts they taught me in karate class. I didn’t get a look at the guy’s face because he was gone so fast! I think that they should combine ‘screaming classes’ with some practical self defense. My martial arts training has helped me immensely in my life. I’ve been able to successfully fight off would-be attackers and just feel safer in my day to day life. I recommend that to every woman.
