I just came back from the World Criminology Congress in Japan.  Normal tourists go to see museums, zoos, botanical gardens, they took us on tours to see adult and juvenile prisons.

It was surely an education, albeit, you can never know how accurate the facts are, provided by government officials under such circumstances.

– they claimed that in a nation of 150,000,0000 they have only 70,000 prisoners
– they claimed that they have only about 3,600 juveniles imprisoned.

With your research skills, I wonder if you could get back to me with alternative numbers.

The juvenile institution that we visited was of particular interest. It housed only about 60 juvenile offenders, said to be convicted on theft, sex, and drug crimes.  It was organized as a village of sorts, 10 kids (2 per a good size room) in a house with house mother and father full time, cooked meals, but also in house kitchen for light cooking.  They have general education, music, arts, swimming pool, vegetable garden, field trips… sports facilities that are used also by neighboring public schools…

They have no fences, and they claimed that for 60 kids they have on the average 300 escapes per year, but eventually the kids come back on their own, or are brought back…

They claimed to have a system of 60 such institutions across Japan, only 2 of them for higher security offenders.

The cost estimate is about 2 times higher than what the states pay for kids in juvenile penal institutions.

We talked with some of the juveniles… According to the data we were shown, their IQ is below average, and they tend to be ADHD (but hardly medicated), and often with various types of abuse background.  My impression was the same.  However, the kids looked happy.

The prisons looked back to the 50s:
– No air conditioners in very hot weather, only large fans.
– They are relatively crowded, but possibly not in comparison with Japanese homes: They sleep on Tatami mats, about 8 to a good size room
– They have various types of employment, from light industry to car mechanics (a vocational program).  We were told they made a decent pay, but were permitted to use in prison only a small fraction, the rest they must save.
– There were hardly any prisoners under solitary confinement, and the solitary confinement cells looked like 5 star hotels compared to my experience in the US.
– There are no prisoners chained (in contrast with the US in my experience).

Many of the prisoners appeared as members of organized crime by their extensive tattoo patterns.

Some of the older prisoners appeared as zombies, but that may be indeed the case.

They have some educational programs, sports, etc.

Security level appeared amateur compared to the US, but they claimed that there were hardly any escapes.

In my estimate, the cost of their prison, per person, is much lower than the cost in the US.

Justice system US v Japan

Talking with some Japanese experts, they expressed their criticism of the US system, primarily from the point of view of the size of the system, not only prison and prisoners, but attorneys, judges, courts, lawsuits.

The numbers in Japan are a small fraction.  They treat the US attorney/judicial class as parasitic, non productive segment of society.  The number of law schools in Japan is very small, and the number of graduates is similarly very limited.

Financial Crisis US v Europe

My impression was that the Europeans are bracing for the worst as well.  They seem to realize that they are being robbed, but resistance level are much higher in Europe, as already seen in Britain, Greece, France, Spain, etc.

However, I was stunned by stories from Finland.  They claimed that the bankruptcy/foreclosure is such, that they have people that lost their homes in the financial crisis of the 1980’s and are still stuck paying their debt to the banks!!! Basically a serfdom system…

because they are being used to pay off Municipal bonds

the first two digits of the Case number, match the BOND number they are paying off (TITLE number) as per MUNI code


code of medical billing

a false allegation, starts paying off, as soon as there is a “diagnosis”…all those falsely imprisoned, have “victims” OR their own medical/mental diagnosis, raking in the revenue streams to pay off these municipal bonds

this is not specialized corruption, THIS, is Capit al ism (the political use of the human head to derive profit {G.D.P}

if you think this is disgusting, you should see the death derivatives (same insurance, medical billing procedures)

they hedged an 800 TRILLION dollar bet last year on Production…as they do every single year, in June…when this is not met, more people die

1) Slap on the writs

“WATCH the appeals court…these judges, and attorneys slapped on the hand, and presenting a show in the media, usually get off on technicality behind the scenes…”

I agree 100%.  They typically drag it a couple of years, until it is out of the public’s mind, before letting the perps off…

2) What about release of the victims?

Initial reports repeatedly stated that thousands of juveniles (some gave more specific numbers, about 3.600, if I remember correctly)  were victims of the racket.

More recent report stated that close to 200 victims have been released.

What about the rest of them?

3) Kids for Cash vs Rampart scandal

This situation is becoming a copy of the Rampart scandal (1998-2000) in Los Angeles County, California.

Initial reports stated that the number of those falsely imprisoned was anywhere from 8,000-30,000 (!!!).

Four cops were initially convicted, later released on technicality (the Judge did mia culpa, and claimed that she misled the jury in jury instructions).  Later the same cops were awarded $15.000.000 in danages!!!

By 2006 the Blue Ribbon Review Panel report concluded “Innocent people remain in prison”, since only about 200 victims were released.  The report also quoted the judges objecting to release of the victims, since it would lead to “collapse of the justice system”.

4) Media coverage

If the Rampart scandal is any guide in this matter, you would hardly have media report on this case any longer.

there was not only this judge…he sold the children to juvenile detention centers, through psychology, with his peers, as is Policy…he also turned “state’s”…where are all his peers?  the priests, psychologists, juvenile staff, attorneys, experts, and all the other players in this game?
WATCH the appeals court…these judges, and attorneys slapped on the hand, and presenting a show in the media, usually get off on technicality behind the scenes…
