Next time they tell you about the low murder rate in Japan…

Police discourage autopsies that might reveal a higher homicide rate in their jurisdiction, and pressure doctors to attribute unnatural deaths to health reasons, usually heart failure, the group alleges. Odds are, it says, that people are getting away with murder in Japan, a country that officially claims one of the lowest per capita homicide rates in the world.

via Japan’s police see no evil – Los Angeles Times.

The fudging of stats is not only a Japanese trait. In Europe is also a custom to downgrade and even outright lie about a crime to avoid complicated investigations and lengthy trials to the point victims no longer bother to call their local police and just take it. Scotland Yard years ago was discovered grossly under reporting crime so the political animals would look to the constituents.

I simply do not trust statistics from other countries.

  1. Verily…it was in an official report prefacing that report that a great many crimes are not reported in England because the sheeple view the system , the judges, the lawyers and the cops..as about as useful as tits on a boar.
    Hence the data is hugely off.

  2. The Japanese police have a nearly 95% conviction ratio. They pick you up, you have no rights. However, they cannot stop the Yakuza for a very simple reason. People are more afraid of them than the police. So much that over 100 people know of a 16 year old girl being held against her will by a youth. However, he was said to have Yakuza connections so that many people were too afraid to call the police. So the girl was raped and tortured until she finally died. Yeah, gun control works so fucking great. Disarmed sheep too afraid to pick up a phone.

  3. The article failed to mention the reason why crime stats were under reported in Japan. The Japanese police are given raises and promotions based on their ability to CONTROL crime, not solve crimes that are committed.
