            i'm not debating whether or not cocaine possession is a stupid thing in a place like japan. i believe cocaine is f*cked and i don't understand why anyone would do it. and i believe that if you're caught with it, you deserve whatever you get.

            HOWEVER

            the law is there to protect people from police abuse. the law is important to protect us from the overreaching hands of the authorities. if we let them ignore the law whenever it's convenient for them, we're setting a dangerous precedent where police powers grow and grow until we've got nothing left.

            so while yes, being a cokehead and getting caught is definitely laughworthy, being caught using illegal tactics is no laughing matter. it must not be allowed. police must follow the rules.

              And if the price isn't outrageous enough the blow in Japan is crap so says rock star/drug expert Slash formerly of Guns and Roses.

                Hard to disagree with any of that.

                BTW, I laugh at his stupidity, but not at his fate.

                Stupid people are there for entertainment, but that is not the same thing as actually enjoying the resulting ordeal he is subjected to.

                OTOH, I just reread the OP: Numptymate threw away the bag and tried to run, so not much danger of illegal search and seizure here.

                Whadda maroon.

                Still, it does help reinforce broader stereotypes of Kiwis, or at least, Kiwis in Japan.

                  Because it feels f*cking great! But I've never done it in Japan, and never will, it's just not worth it. If I want to do drugs I'll go back home or visit a country where they are permitted.

                    Bummer on the bust. People can kick and there is help in J-Land if one looks. Tokyo Cops can be annoying for sure. I got stopped on my bike over 15 times in three years.....
