Hi Blog. Reader CF submits the following.  Food for thought on a Sunday morning, given the degree of racial profiling in Japan.  On how police are trained in getting people to waive their rights.  Arudou Debito in Sapporo


Debito, although it is not entirely applicable to Japan, this video (screened in full with a panel afterwards at the Cato website) provides legal advice that is generally applicable to targets of racial profiling.

“10 Rules for Dealing with Police”

The advice to not request badge numbers, and of course, the rules on not needing to present ID do not apply to us in Japan.

I’m not a Japanese lawyer so I don’t know to what degree the other rules apply, but in general, it seems to fit what we’ve learned on your site.

Please give it a look and use if you like.  CF
