I interviewed Gen Takahashi of the movie `` Pochi Confession '' on the theme of corruption of police organization

A normal police officer everywhere plays a role of dirt to protect the police organization and actively participates in the injustice of police power, eventually becoming corrupt for money making, and the life itself collapses Interview with Gen Takahashi, who produced, wrote, edited and directed the movie ' Pochi Confession ', which was about the corruption of police organizations.

`` Making back money '' with a receipt that disturbed the public, seizure of a handmade handgun to overlook gangster drug trade, seizing and dismissing discipline before being arrested even in the case, instead of an incumbent police officer `` This work is close to the actual situation of the police, such as Magic reported as a `` former police officer '', but the director is not only a problem with the current police but also a problem in the Japanese society itself and clues for resolution Is also mentioned.

Details are as below.

Director Takahashi Gen

■ Pochi's Confession Background, Approaching Police Organization's Corruption

A free journalist Yu Terasawa, who is famous for pursuing the corruption of power organizations such as police, prosecutors, courts and crackdowns on traffic offenses, and in particular pursuing police crimes or crimes committed by the police himself, He said that he cooperated with the original draft and that all of the stories were based on the true story, but if there was an episode related to police power fraud that could not be included in the movie due to screenplay or time, but remained strongly impressed Please give me.

Gen Takahashi (hereinafter Takahashi):
Well, it's similar or closer. In general, making back money with a Kala receipt is a national thing. This movie is a representative example of a series of police crimes.

Police are the largest violent organization in Japan, but have you ever experienced any unreasonable actions by the police themselves?

When I was young I had to find a tour if I had time and ask questions about my job. For example, when I was riding a bicycle and passing by in front of the cruise, the other person was looking at me, but I didn't say that I wasn't so suspicious. And on the contrary, he said, 'What are you looking at?'

I'm not making fake stories to sell because I'm making such a movie separately, but the police officers really call the public 'you'. Because they are government officials, they are not based on the obvious perception that taxpayers are the sovereign. Of course, there are very few people who respond to common sense, but more than 90% of police officers are meaninglessly high-pressure and unreasonable.

As I said earlier, there are no police officers who are observing the Police Duty Execution Law properly. My boss tells me that there is a law but I can ignore it, so I often do things like check inside the car without a warrant. That really means you have to be prosecuted if you sue. But you won't be prosecuted for actually appealing. That's because the police and the prosecution are connected.

In other words, 'Japan is a rule-of-laws state' is a big lie, and there is no way to respond to them properly, so I did quite a bit to pursue it from here. Naturally, the other side will also struggle against such a struggling people. I never did anything to get arrested.

That's why I study law as such, and I'm familiar with the police inside in that sense. I don't want to be involved with such people. Basically, police work is weak and bullying, so I don't want to be involved with someone who isn't likely to win. That area is still the basis of officials. In other words, they want to avoid getting involved.

Have you ever been pressured or harassed by police, courts, or the press for releasing this game? Or was it safe to make this work public?

I don't have any direct pressure, but it seems that some cinemas have their local jurisdiction coming in and out or calling. For example, a movie theater in Isezakicho, Yokohama, received a call from the jurisdiction, 'Do you intend to screen?' The director of the theater responded, 'I'll do it, what's wrong with it?'

After that, there were some movie theaters that regulated themselves. Movie theaters are also box offices, so there was a place that said, 'I'm close to the police, so these movies are ...' The police did not directly use organizational power. Of course, doing that would make you a snake.

This time, for the first time in the history of about 60 years at the Japan Foreign Correspondents Association, the use of the film as a film location has been licensed, and the translators and moderators appearing are real Japanese Foreign Correspondents Associations. But how did it come about?

I used to be friends with directors and association members. One of the issues raised when making a movie about police crime is the media system where information is not disclosed (disclosed), and foreign correspondents are always aware of the problem. . Because the content was cut into it, a meeting was held and it was granted special permission.

A press club that just swallows the announcement from the police. I don't look at anything.

Scene using the Japan Foreign Correspondents Association as a location

Japanese media is `` mass garbage '', so it exposes the incredible reality to foreign media

But the police are the same, and the sacrifice is ...

Police case announcements were extremely closed, with only `` press clubs '' available to certain newspaper and news agencies in Japan, and despite the Democratic Party's pledge to open `` press clubs '', It has not yet approved the participation of third parties, nor has it been allowed to participate in press conferences. (The press club itself is not allowed to allow some freelance reporters to participate in conferences. But the police intervene and eliminate), what kind of problem do you recognize about the press club issue?

After all, there is a problem with the rule of information. The situation in North Korea is often cited as a ball, but I think Japan will not be able to laugh. There may not be many people who believe in newspapers now, but in the sense of the common people, `` Is newspapers doing more than TV variety programs and dramas? '' Is more correct than commercial broadcasting? '

When the war generation sees this movie, they really support it. If you've experienced that 'don't use English' has changed overnight, then you don't really trust what's in the headquarters. An elderly woman who knew the high

police era came to see me and said, 'I understand.'

So, the

reporter club, which provides information exclusively to specific media, seems to be a strange system, but they follow it to eat, aren't they? That's why even newspaper publishers are going to retirement, get a retirement allowance, and try to say something after they have no damage to themselves. Because of the right to live, there are aspects that you can not blame the parties unilaterally, but if that is the reason, you have to affirm the yakuza who commits crimes for life. That's the story.

There is always such a contradiction and contradiction in the nation. But despite the contradictions, the most important thing is not what is the law, but what is the right thing in the sense of how to live as a person or righteousness.

That is, 'I'm wrong in the law, but I'm right as a person.' For example, if a person without a doctor's license goes to a depopulated village and performs surgery, it's really illegal. However, as a person's way, if a person who says `` I do not have a doctor's license for some reason but can do surgery '' performs surgery and the person who was supposed to die is saved, this is correct as a person's work I should say.

It is said that Japan is a rule-of-law nation.However, by observing the law, the path of humanity or righteousness has been lost, and the press club system in the media has been conducive to that. I think.

If the director and police club are trying to solve the problem of police and reporter clubs as discussed in this work, where do you start first?

There is a person named Toshiro Senba, who had been driven to the window until retirement due to the Ehime Prefectural Police refusing to make back money. He is the only police officer in Japan who has never written a back receipt in police history. As he said, we're thinking of introducing a 'private police to monitor the police,' such as the prosecution board that indicted the Akashi Pedestrian Bridge accident, which had always been uncharged.

The police are also administrative agencies, so they are essentially the same as the officials at the ward office's resident card window. For example, when applying for a resident's card, if someone has the attitude of saying, 'I'll issue a resident's card and write your name here,' of course, wouldn't you be angry with 'What's that attitude!' Despite being asked illegally by a police officer who is the same government official, it is ridiculous for the people to shrink.

First of all, I think it is necessary to educate the public not to say that 'police officers are strong' but to 'recognize that they are merely civil servants who are going to work until retirement is paid for fear of blunder.' That has the same meaning as disclosure of information. In other words, the people need to know where the police are, what is inside, and what the mentality of those working there is.

In other words, police officers are just civil servants.

That's right. And an aunt who pushes a stamp with various names on a fake receipt inside a police station does not think that it is a crime just doing her job as she was told. When we shoot a movie, for example, we get a 'road permit' by applying to the police. In fact, it is illegal if you stop the car at the time of shooting by saying 'Please wait a moment'.

However, there is a kind of gray zone of legal interpretation, 'I can impose punishment, but it would be enough to manage my daily life.' Standing Shoben. The same goes for drinking and driving a bicycle. That's a light vehicle by law, so if you want to crack down on it, it's actually a traffic violation.

Such a thing is originally called 'society', but when the police judge it, it has the image of 'police = messenger of justice'. So, even if the police did something bad, it was an excuse for escaping that `` Kobo was wrong with the brush '', and the reporter club was as deep as saying that police misconduct was an exceptional thing. I think there is a familiar structure that does not pursue. After all, the people should be informed of what the police are doing.

Does that mean that the police and the media are so closely linked in Japan?

Yeah. In the United States, there are anti-police programs that specialize in police crime. Earlier, I talked to Amy Goodman, a newscaster and international journalist in New York, with a newscaster called 'Democracy Now!' Aimed at dealing with news that the mainstream media wouldn't cover. Isn't there such a person?

Most journalists and newscasters in Japan are sorry, but they do it to earn food. To be specific, I asked Furudate's company at 'Press Station' to contact me for the release of the movie, but I was rejected for the reason that the content was strict.

By the way, TV Asahi's affiliated company's TV Asahi footage is making a training video for rewriting traffic licenses, requested by the Public Security Commission. That's why the affiliates said, 'It is better not to go against the police.' If that happens, there's no journalism.

“Controlling the press information” means having power. It's not really money. At the extreme, if information is available, money can be created by manipulating stock prices. After all, information is the weapon of power. Leaving out information that only you have or leaking information that you should not leak is a fatal injury to human beings on the power side.

Right now, Internet media has become a huge force. I think that in the age where people on the power side hold information, the generalization of the Internet media will change.

The work was completed in 2005, but it was not easily screened in a movie theater due to the length of about 195 minutes exceeding 3 hours, and about 5 years have passed, but why was it such a masterpiece so far? Did it become?

I didn't expect it to be this long from the beginning. I'm a director, but I'm also the owner of my own production, so I don't want to be willing to do things that make it hard to sell. Of course, I had to sort out a few things that had to be shortened, but I settled on the current scale because it would be okay to make it shorter.

Also, despite the fact that the distribution and the release of the video software were not decided in the first place, there was an investor who said, 'I can make what I want to make.' I showed people what they did, but they didn't say 'should be shorter'. That was the result of this time.

In the end, how many theaters in Japan will be screened, and how many people will have seen this work in movie theaters and festivals in total?

There was also an encore screening, so it was screened in more than 20 buildings. There were two encore screenings each in Shibuya and Yokohama, and there are still screenings at film festivals, so I don't know the exact number of people in that sense, but it would be a little 10,000. After all, if the time is long, it is hard for people to come to the movie theater.

It's hard to make adjustments because of your life and work. So it's a great pleasure for us to be a DVD this time. You can watch them little by little in your spare time, and from a major distribution company, it was said from the beginning that this might be more responsive to DVDs.

I'm sorry for taking care of the bottom line, how many DVDs do you want to sell? Also, I actually watched the whole episode on the sample DVD. Do you plan to release it on Blu-ray?

I think there is also a sales target for the release company, but I don't mind that much. I guess it's more important to say 'how this movie will survive' than to say 'how many copies were sold.'

In the play, scenes using the Internet to complain of injustice of the whole organization by the police power will come out, but there are cases where police officers actually record and edit the state of occupation and publish it on YouTube Even in overseas, there are many cases in which videos of unreasonable violence by police officers are released on YouTube. I have the feeling that all the truth will be revealed on the Internet little by little in the future, but does the director still expect the Internet? Or do you think the future will not come because the police regulate the Internet?

The Internet is very important when it comes to the concept of “information = something that can be handled by individuals”. In the old days, activists would print out leaflets so hard that they would go out to thousands of households and distribute them in hundreds of billions in an instant. Even in the case of movies, in the past, advertising companies had to pay a lot of money to advertise, but now they can use a website and the number of users is increasing.

From now on, the quality of information will be questioned, but at least in prosecuting crimes and injustices of police and powerful people, the Internet is very effective for ordinary people It's a weapon that you can't really control. According to the story, the Internet was originally created by the power side for military purposes, so that information can be obtained immediately when nuclear weapons are used and destroyed. It is ironic that it has become a threat to power.

Perhaps because the information control that China is doing with Google is too much for public opinion if it is not regulated. In that sense, it is difficult to regulate, so there is a good chance that power and fraud will become more latent this time so that important information cannot be easily grasped.

The scenes inside the police seem to be all too complicated and strangely realistic. How much police did you cover and investigate for this movie?

It may be a bit misleading, but I used to be a young man who was bragging in the city in the past, so I don't like police officers from the beginning. So it's a world I've known for a long time, including my own experiences, talks with friends and friends. On top of that, Mr. Terasawa provided me with specific and specialized materials.

It's weird, but when my friend entered a prison in Tokyo because he hit a person, the prison was remodeled in the past and now, and the appearance of the prison is different, the person who made the movie They only have data on the old Tokyo detention center, but the details are different from the current Tokyo detention center.

There are people who said that they were inside, 'the layout is going to be this way' or that they had to write and listen to that information and use it where it could be used. So, rather than doing research, it's a world I knew from the beginning, so I never interviewed anyone specifically for this movie.

I guess it took a lot of money to make a movie, but how big was the budget? Also, has this work turned profitable or has it turned red?

The budget is fixed from the beginning, the production cost is about 30 million yen, and if it is bad, it is about the price of making a slightly earlier V-cinema. This is our pride, but I don't think there is any other team that can capture this on this budget. Chiba and Mito City in Ibaraki Prefecture are the main locations, but the government has cooperated, and the actors and staff have been together for almost 20 years since I debuted as a film director. If an ordinary major company tries to do this for business, I think it will cost at least 150 million yen.

It is still far from being profitable, but it sold well in foreign countries. It seems that there was a surprise, 'What was the Japanese police like?' There seems to be an image that Japan's police are excellent in the background that Japan is a safe country, but when I was called to an overseas film festival, I told you that it was not such a thing . The security of Japan is good not because the police are excellent, but because the Japanese people have high morality.

What is different from police crimes in other countries is that Japan does this nationally. Making back money is not only bad for individual police officers, but also for XX stations in a certain jurisdiction, but it is that the National Police Agency is giving specific instructions, so there is no other country like this Right. So, that's why 'why not get accused?'

In fact, most people will probably think that they have nothing to do with police, such as police fraud, because if they do nothing wrong, they will not be taken care of by the police. Looking at this work, it is quite possible as a mechanism for the police to create a case by trapping on their own, and whether to implement it is not too much of a law but Japan's dependence on the police officer's own conscience too much I was impressed. The question is, how many of the Japanese police officers do you think have ever had any wrongdoing?

Everyone dyes their hands regardless of whether they dye. 100%. As I mentioned earlier, I heard the specifics of Mr. Toshiro Senba who could not be promoted from the Chief of the Police Department for 35 years until retirement because he refused to make a receipt of back money, but he himself said, `` Police are Japan. Testified to be 'the largest criminal organization.' If you reject illegal acts in the police organization, you will be divided into villages and you will not be able to advance. Some people accuse after quitting, but that's just what they want to say, 'I'm different.' If you really want to change, you have to say it at that time.

Is this a problem unique to the Japanese police?

Of course, it's not just the police, it's a matter of Japanese organizational theory. This 'Pochi Confession' is based on the police because it is the easiest for police to understand, but in fact it applies to all Japanese organizational theories. A new place to remember is that someone from a company that spoofed meat processing made a whistle-blowing, but on the other hand, he was bashed, saying, 'You must have been near me too.'

The Japanese organizational theory, including the general public's feelings, is something that the accused humans will feel problematic. For example, someone accused of camouflaged meat is accepted as a hero in other countries. However, in Japan, people tend to look negative only by the concept of 'a person who betrays an organization.'

This is not only a matter of the police system, but I think Japan is special in the public psyche surrounding it. Not an excuse, but myself. If you sell a fight to a major movie company and do it with a lone wolf, you're talking about a problem for me. It's not really about selling fights, it's just not keeping silent about injustice and unreasonability. Japanese people don't really like people who act or produce results on their own. But any professional baseball player who has gone abroad will lift it. That's why I intend to include a Japanese perspective in this movie.

At first the relationship starts from a silly, silly place, but that's the first step in turning his life in an unexpected direction

'Questions' appear many times in this movie, but every problem is shed because it is for everyday life

The scene that I can never go against the above is repeated over and over again

At first it was a thug, but gradually it began to discover what was really happening

A preface to the scene showing that the organization rots, not just a part of the badness somewhere, but `` from top to bottom ''

Unwilling to 'create' without crime, malicious use that can only be done because you are aware of the power you have, just abuse

I'm just thinking about how to abuse my authority even during a patrol and make it delicious

The future of the protagonist who keeps obediently obedient everywhere is dark

There used to be a time like this, but where and how did you make the mistake, and what was wrong from entering the police in the first place?

Following the faithful adherence to the organization, the end of the phrase that the person who used the organization was cut down by the organization

Lawyers can't count on, there's no truth anywhere

Even the judge ……

Despite the judge system being launched, police and prosecutors are still investigating behind closed doors, recording on video tapes is not actively being conducted, and even video recording and recording are not obligatory. It's still possible for the police to write and record papers on their own, and even make impossible cases possible. What do you think about that?

I also profess on the blog about the judge system, which is one of the omissions. There are a lot of public opinion that 'the judgment of the court does not reflect the will of the people', so it is the reverse of my order to create a system that intervenes the will of the people. If the judge doesn't know about the world, it's best to start with a system to re-educate the judge.

For example, to send a judge to a yakuza office for three months as an apprentice, to do farming, to work at a factory, or to acquire such a sense of common people, the Ministry of Justice said that `` You are so much. If you want to criticize, try a judge. It's tough. ' It is the judge system that the public servant has smashed against the people.

Moreover, the pretend is similar to the jury system only in form, and the actual situation is different. Indecision is not tolerated, and you may decide to be guilty or innocent in a short period of time. In addition, if a judge has a professional judge, it is natural for the people who want to finish it as soon as possible. If the judge says, 'This is an expert,' I tend to lean on that judgment. Even if not told, the commoners will respect the judge's judgment. The people are good scapegoats. I'm looking forward to receiving a subpoena.

When I asked someone who was familiar with the back society, it seemed that many subpoenas of the judge system had arrived at the Yamaguchi Gumi headquarters. It's a random choice, but I read back and thought that I did this on purpose. I suppose I sent the paper of the judge system to the members of the gang on purpose and said that the information was leaked, and then I said, `` After all random is unreasonable, let's squeeze to some extent so that there is no such mistake '' In the end, in order to focus on those who are likely to hear what the power side says, I'm wondering if it might be a hint that we set up ourselves.

The judge's allowance is only 10,000 yen, but the actual judge's salary is not that cheap. In addition, it seems that it is said that 500 yen will be collected as a lunch box, so what is that? It's a completely devastating system.

In the end, it may be a system that is advantageous to the power side.

That's right. And the anti-power action like in the era of the student movement in Japan today is unlikely. When I met people who were rampant during the student movement era, it was said that that era was over, but that generation of people lost after all. Since they lost, the policy of education changed at a stretch in the compulsory education after that, 'We must not make these kind of children.'

So the quality of the compulsory education received by that generation and the compulsory education we received after 1965 are completely different. I think there is something that prevents originality and self-judgment from being aggressively born. I also have children, so I often escape from elementary school teachers by arguing with discussions, but maybe this is the foundation of compulsory education now.

Squeezed out with pressure and pushes through any recklessness as long as it is in power

Obviously weird things require sacrifices for the majority of others in the organization

No scandals, just a form of apology, so nobody will reflect on it, nothing will improve, there is no self-purifying action

The administration has changed from the Liberal Democratic People to Democracy, and I'm not interested at all in the Ozawa issue just a while ago, but that's just plain reversal of prosecution. If we were to say that such a thing was terrible, it was in the LDP era. However, even when Koizumi and the Ministry of Finance Takenaka were doing various things, the demonstrations surrounding the Diet never happened.

So, I think this is ultimately our omission as a sovereign and taxpayer. After all, it's probably because of the change in Japanese mentality, 'I am different from others.' From the tenement society, it became an apartment society completely separated by concrete. In the past, if the next child was bad, a scary uncle from the town came out, and he might have been knocking on another child. But now, it is supposed that we must not raise our children's hands, which is something weird.

The so-called police scoring seems to be the number of arrests, but anyway the police can investigate the case, gather evidence, make a record, push the stamp and send it to the prosecution, and you can earn points by itself. Does the subsequent guilt or innocence result have no effect on the score?

Public prosecutors and police have different roles, so they won't have any effect. It is a famous story that earning points is in order to get the budget, for example, at the time of the parrot subway sarin case, it was a famous story that there was a tail of the public security police in the subway car that sowed sarin, but dare to cause the incident By making a big deal, the public security police will have a great cause to crack down on such terrorism and eradicate it, and the budget will go down.

So, when the law changes, it only changes when it comes to the interests of bureaucrats and the power. Hasn't history ever changed the law for the benefit of the people? If the police did that for profit business, they would have to affirm what the yakuza did.

Although they are also criminals, only 30% of the prisoners actually incarcerated in Japan are officially counted as gangsters. The other 70% are so-called Kata people who have stabbed people at the end of their affair, stole things without eating or eating, or have hit people in a traffic accident.

In other words, criminal gangs are about 30% of those who commit crimes, or perhaps only 1% of the total population of Japan, even from the official list of gang members. I don't know what it means to amend. By changing the law, you can create some kind of new company. Companies that make posters or badges that do campaigns.

It's all about securing reemployment in Amakudari. Now, about 10,000 retirees a year come from the police because the seniority rank of the baby boomers is rising. In recent years, the police community has been worried about what to do with about 10,000 OBs every year. I guess there are so many countries where there are so many signals. The company that manufactures the traffic lights and attaches the curved mirrors are all the responsibility of the company of the Aboriginal OB, and the work has to be done, so the signals are on to the point where they are not needed.

Overseas, the police are generally protected by state power despite being unilaterally capable of conducting violence, and inevitably have the image of 'police are dirty'. Are you respected or awe-inspired, and the general public wants to hold the police shoulder, why do you think?

Probably because it was advertised in that way during compulsory education. If the police go to elementary school to give traffic safety classes or teach about the work of police officers during social studies time, they must also teach police crime in their education. Because education is based only on one-sided biased information, what is different from brainwashing education in North Korea?

Of course, I think few Japanese people feel familiar with police officers. It's a recognition that you need to play a role in running a law-free society. I think one of the backgrounds is 'disclaimer of self-responsibility'. In other words, it's a policeman's job to beat the bad guys. But it's okay for ordinary people to get rid of bad people. But because the state has taken the armed rights from the common people, the state has to guarantee it. But police have not done it.

Are there any direct inspirations that made you want to make this movie?

Before the production was decided, the first reason I decided to make this movie was the

Okegawa Stalker incident . I wanted to do this case, but decided that the case was so unique that it ended up there. Police officer inactions are common.

Even though the victim had consulted the police box many times, the incident occurred, but if there were people like acquaintances of the yakuza with the affected family, If you had consulted that person, the stalker would have been knocked out overnight. But they must take responsibility because the police dismissed the yakuza as saying, 'We protect the people.'

The police have abandoned their responsibilities because they don't do it. The Japanese think that the police are a friend of justice, I think that there is also the influence of programs such as `` Police 24:00 '' that specializes in policewoman who are doing their best, but it is called `` Vicious Police 24:00 '' You have to do it at the same time.

Is a lawyer, member of the House of Representatives also served, Katsuhiko Shirakawa, who is also the Chairman of the National Public Safety Commission is on its own site, is Shokushitsu (interrogation) to the police officer just had to walk the Shibuya a little Musai looking, mess I've disclosed what I saw, but why does the police judge someone who looks for a job based on their look and feel?

After all, is it a human nature to become a police officer? Isn't the police a title society or a class society? So, as long as the class goes up, the human ability has nothing to do. I did this movie, but there was something different from the usual promotion test called 'selection', and if I liked my boss, I could be promoted.

In other words, as long as the boss likes and raises the rank with any hand, the salary will increase regardless of the ability. A person with such a feeling becomes a police officer or a civil servant, so we judge everything based on metaphysical things like appearance and form. So, if the person who caused the murder case is an anime geek, saying that he is a suspicious person wearing a rag, only those who are dressed like that will be marked. But I don't mean a suspicious person is walking in a suspicious look. Conversely speaking, if you wear a proper suit and carry a bag, any terrorist can pass by.

Based on the Criminal Gangs Prevention Act, each prefectural public safety committee has recognized a strong anti-social group with certain requirements among gangs as a 'designated gang' based on the Criminal Gangs Act, but why bother? Police don't go to arrest all gang members even though they've identified them as gangsters?

There is a trial in whether or not you are actually committing a criminal act, so if you are just trying to be a gang, you can not maintain the trial. Their values as civil servants are 'let's not go bad.' In fact, this is the same with the yakuza, though it seems like they are doing it carelessly, but if they do the wrong thing to the humans above the organization, they will not be able to eat in one shot.

'Is it okay to do what I did?' You can't help saying 'I'm going to be a gang because I'm a gangster,' unless you know the individual charges. On the other hand, at the jurisdiction level, gangsters and police are some sort of Tom and Jerry, and if there is a place to get acquainted before Gasa enters, information will be available.

For example, if the crew is on the list, they will tell you the time to be arrested in advance and have a talk with the boss in the criminal manager class. I couldn't see my wife for the time being, so I said, 'I'll be doing it for three days, so let's do some sort of personal arrangement in the meantime.' This is where the yakuza is different from the overseas mafia, and the Japanese yakuza does not escape. If you escape, your whole organization will be destroyed. Yakuza is very special because there is a tacit understanding or culture that says, 'I'll give this thing, don't do the whole organization.'

This is a story of a police officer near the retirement age in the International Crime Control Division of the Metropolitan Police Department. When he is about to retire, he will be close to gangs. Of course, if you are an OB, you can go to the company where you are going down the mountain, but if you want to make more money, you can tell the yakuza about the information that the junior junior says `` Gas will enter '' and request a reward, or do various things That's why.

In that sense, I think police and yakuza are two wheels, or two sides of the same coin. However, the yakuza says, 'Police are more dirty.' In case of emergency, the police are just a state servant, so the other side is more social and has a good cause. The battle between police and yakuza is unfolding in such a situation.

I have actually seen and heard cases where police officers calmly abused their authority and threatened the general public, but in such cases will it be resolved by appealing to the prefectural public safety committees? ? Or is it really meaningless to sue a police officer? Who can and how can you punish the police for wrongdoing?

It doesn't get resolved after appealing to public security. The Public Safety Commission manages the police. I've been trying to see what the Police Department's complaint counters are doing, thinking that it's useless. It seemed like a window that responded to complaints, rather than a tree-nosed response, and the atmosphere was like, 'Do you have any complaints?' It was just a story of 'consultation desk'.

Judgment is the ultimate conclusion in modern society, so isn't the court's decision ultimately the ultimate conclusion? But in Japan, the judge, the prosecutor, and the lawyer's entrance are all the same. You just have to pass the bar exam. That's why if you want to punish the police, you need a pure jury system, not a judge.

In fact, when asked by a judge, he says that even if he was acquitted of what the prosecutor indicted, his career would be closed. That's where Japan's extraordinary guilty rate comes from. Isn't this almost impossible, even if you look around the world, being almost automatically guilty when a prosecutor charges you? The average person doesn't know that it is normal. If you become a suspect, it is as if you were confirmed as a criminal at that time. 'In a sense, it's true if you're arrested, you're done when you're indicted.'

When renewing a driver's license, joining the police traffic safety association was voluntary for the individual and it was not necessary to pay separately, but it did not give such a description at all, and it was used for salary of Amakudari officers, etc. Is the act of ripping off money being done normally?

Not only the police, but also bureaucrats, including the so-called administrative justice, who are `` eating with the money of the country '' are coming in with the same constitution as the old representative, so the reason is only money. . Most civil servants come in because they are a stable source of income without going bankrupt.

Of course, some people may want to go to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to do their job, but most of the time it's because they have stable financial resources. Since the principle of the law of action is 'money,' it is natural that government officials are more attached to money than the private sector.

Despite Japan's ban on gambling, only pachinko permits it with inexplicable logic. The theory that this is because the police are holding a single piece is flowing straight, but if so, I think that all gambling can be legalized with the power of the police, but why only pachinko is specially treated Shall I?

There is always one person going down in the pachinko prize exchange. If you do not accept it, you will not get a business license. By the way, not only pachinko but also lottery lots go abroad, various companies are offering multiple types of things. However, in Japan, the former Daiichi Bank and Mizuho Bank have exclusive interests.

There is a flow of bankers who came with the country since the war era in Japan. This would almost certainly conflict with antitrust law in law. In that sense, all the power that the police have is in one place, in the case of Japan. Power isn't scattered in the United States' FBI or CIA, but rather all in one. It's a story that you can do whatever you want.

Finally, is the future of Japan bright or dark?

It depends on your perspective. Everyone says that there is no salvation in this movie, but the reason why we appointed a child girl on purpose is a message saying, 'The future must be bright.' I chose my daughter, not my son, because it's women who give birth to children.

In my daughter's eyes ...

In the last scene, the girl is watching the adult society being dirty while blowing slowly in the wind, but when she sees the yellow diary left by the child's father, the child himself becomes the next generation It will lead to a society that fights to get rid of the dirty things ... maybe. You don't draw the last scene as despair.

Personally speaking, I think there are considerable problems in Japan's future, including the current problem of declining birthrates. According to some estimates, Japan's population will be halved in 2050 if left unchecked. After all, there are no choice but to accept foreign immigrants as Korean and Chinese people are already.

Japan has the least protection of education costs by the government, so I think the idea that 'human resources become property' has really disappeared. JAL was stubbornly saying that the uncle who saved 50,000 shares was lamenting because of bankruptcy ... on a TV, but he said he never believed that. In fact, it was an illusion that came in the way that 'shares are amazing and this is the property'.

For example, production labor such as agriculture and fishery is seen as a solid thing, and it seems that movie shops are yakuza business, but in my opinion, it does business against the weather I think which one is really unstable, agriculture, fisheries and movies. There are various angles of perspective in that way, and film is a job that presents one perspective. If you look at the opened laptop from behind, it's just a square box.

This movie is just a story of the police watching from the side. In that sense, there are views that books are in recession today and that there are few children, but on the other hand, foreigners come to Japan to study Japanese values and aesthetics, It is a kind of reimportation of Japanese values that incorporates into a Japanese society what has been created by a foreigner who respects the manners and manners, or `` I think it is important to have.

Thank you very much.
