Kochi prefectural police[KPP] committed a crime. A young policeman riding a police motorcycle crashed into a school bus at 2006/3/3 on Route56 in Haruno-town. At that time, a school bus who drove Mr. Kataoka completely stopped on a road near an intersection, and a police motorcycle was running approximately 60km/h [38mph] or more. That police motorcycle crashed into a bus very hard and the police motorcycle was badly damaged, and the policeman was died unfortunately.
KPP had frequently trained high speed chase training by police motorcycle in that point of route56, but the high speed chase training is illegal because the training had been done on public road and had acted secretly on route56. I mean, the high speed chase trainnning was perfprmed without permission. However, KPP fabricated witness and evidence, KPP concealed testimony of the third party and evidence of the truth. KPP's distorted investigation was concluded that the accident is certainly Mr.Kataoka's fault. Then, KPP arrested Mr.Kataoka and send him to Kakogawa jail in Hyougo, 200miles away from Kataoka's house and his family. Sorry to died young policeman, but an accident is an accident. Nothing more, and nothing less. KPP only had to deal fairly with the accident, but they didn't. Why KPP did need to fabricate the accident and send Mr. Kataoka to jail?
First of all, KPP had performed illegal training. It's too bad to their illegal training become known to public. If those illegal training is out of the bag, some of KPP's bureaucrats had to take responsibility, and they probably lost their job or demoted their rank. Needless to say, KPP bureaucrats don't want to lost job or demote rank, and don't want to take responsibility. Therefore, KPP bureaucrats desided to put the blame to Mr. Kataoka, one of a sufferer of the accident.
In addition to this, KPP had been pursued about the public funds embezzlement scandal when that police motorcycle accident happened. The civil ombudsman organization in Kochi found that KPP were making the investigation expense to a slush fund, and it was said that those investigation expense became the making merry expense of the KPP police chief. KPP were made to bear the brunt of the criticism in those days. It was very very inconvenient for KPP's bureaucrats if the accident open to public and KPP admitted that the accident was KPP's fault. Consequently, KPP bureaucrats ordered their subordinate police officers that they make false evidence, false witness, and composite photographs.
However, Mr. Kataoka is absolutely innocent of the charge. He didn't have wrong at all and he had no responsibility about the accident. The accident and lost a life of young policeman are completely KPP's bureaucrats' fault. However, Mr. Kataoka was sentenced to guiltiness, and he was sent to the prison because of KPP bureaucrats move their hand back to the prosecution and the judge.
This is a serious false charge event. If we let the false charge go unpunished, it's means that we accept the freedom and the justice do NOT exist in Japan. Therefore, I wrote the article in English and sent to the world.
