Prison Life: Justice in Japan

  • Japan operates on strict principles of balance and order, but it also has a repressive prison system, where inmates march to worksites attached by a cord, are not allowed to look at the guards in the eye, and must maintain absolute silence outside of scheduled leisure hours. Does this explain why the country has one of the lowest crime rates in the world?

    Only in a western country, would you see a documentary comparing on how a large number of westerners, cannot or refuse to be mindful, on being clean and orderly, also respecting the space of other people around them. It is no different than a military boot camp. Imagine being able to complete your prison term, without the fear of being raped, contracting hepatitis and other diseases. Not having to worry about being physically attacked or murdered in prison. Also, the guards having no fear, doing their job. Yes, they do have some major downfalls in the system, that is no different than any other country, but they are still doing much better than the rest of the Western prisons

      Exactly. This isn't the first time documentaries on TH-cam tried to insinuate that Japan's justice system is somehow terrible for prisoners. What a joke, it's a luxury compared to what these prisoners can face in prisoners outside of Japan, particularly Latin America, Russia, or USA. I remember watching one of those "locked up abroad" shows about an American who was locked up in Japan and it was hilarious how hard the producers and the former inmate himself tried to hype up how 'terrible' conditions were inside. Yeah, being locked up is never good but it wasn't meant to be, but being locked up in Japan is far, FAR better than the alternative like I mentioned. You don't go worrying about getting raped or abused by prison gangs and things of that sort.

      I'm American and spent a pretty lengthy stay in a Mexican prison. People in America have no idea how good they have it. I had to fight every single day for a taco full of onions and bell peppers, a plastic bag of sprite and if we were lucky a handfull or tortilla chips. They tried countless times to inject me with God knows what, but I never gave in and always refused the shots.. Across from my cell was a halding cell for all of the drugs they brought in off of the streets. The left side from the floor to the ceiling was power, the right side was green.. It was like waving candy in front of a baby to the prisoners. I came to believe they held the narcotics there just to mess with the drug addicts... I was released and given a 10 year period in which I was not allowed back into the country, but that Mexican kitty was calling my name so that little stipulation of not coming back went out the window within the first week of being "free"... lol

In the US this often means ignoring a lot of chaos and BS around you. Japan seems to really know what it’s doing.

      A racially homogenous society with a rich cultural history and shared values will have different results with crime and incarceration. Sweden is a decent example of this, they're taking a more aggressive approach to criminal justice when just 15 years ago they were closing prisons. Most of this increase in crime is in the form of gang violence from immigrants. Growing pains from cultural friction and poverty. I assure you from personal experience, while the Army is built on order and discipline it is reinforced by the social pressures of the new culture you voluntarily submit to. If that fails, intimidation, fear and extortion(not extortion, but financial pain from non-judicial punishment penalizing pay) are there waiting in the wings.

Omgosh she was practically tortured to nod her head in “confession”, miraculously they said got another trial, which rarely happens, then by her & others putting together a deluxe video display of how the fire spread, etc., she is released with a ‘ooops we’re sorry, here’s 750k for your years,,off you go!” Now she is over 60 with it hanging over her head! That ole guy that was so tortured he wont talk again.

    This _reporter/journalist_ apparently has never seen what the Prison System is like in other countries such as Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela, Philippines, Turkey, Mexico and --- the U.S. + the U.K, just to name a few! She would quickly change her mind if she were to ever visit any of the prisons mentioned.
    When I was around 10 y.o., my parents sent me to a Military type Private Academy where I graduated from, and I will say this: It was 3 times STRICTER than the Prisons depicted in this documentary! I wish that Academy was more like the Prison system in Japan!
    They would wake us up at 5 AM, every day and we would have to clean our rooms ( _we were 4 students/cadets in every room_ ), make sure EVERY SINGLE THING was in order and in its place, and our beds had to be made a certain way --- because when the DORM MISTRESS came into our rooms, she would toss a quarter onto each of our beds, and if that coin didnt BOUNCE off the mattress, our "punishment" would be to STRIP our beds entirely, take the mattress and RUN up and down a hill with it carrying it over our head for an hour, and it didnt matter what the weather was like outside, you did it or you got punished even more severely; plus --- there was "corporal punishment" at the time, where our so called "superiors" had the right to physically punish us, and it wasnt something we could call home and complain about, since our parents KNEW the rules prior to placing us in there.
    It was hard on us younger kids up there, especially during the first 2 years, but after my 3rd year there, I became accustomed to the "disciplinary routine" and settled in. Im grateful to my parents today for putting me there, I learned discipline and made life-long friends, but it was way stricter than the prisons in Japan on so many levels.

    Here in Australia we have a similar system but not quite as rigid. Our prisons are in three levels starting with the punishment regime and if you show an ability to be rehabilitated and the sentence allows it, you are moved to a less struct regime and then in your last two years to a prison farm. But you have to go through the levels. The methods of isolation, silence and inactivity are effective in correcting bad behaviour.
    Our new Prisons Commissioner is from the Russian system which is like the Japanese system. But you cannot use jail to be your provider in old age. We have an Aged Care system for that. You will not starve or be destitute in our system.

  • @YTviewer118
    @YTviewer118 หลายเดือนก่อน

    As someone interested in understanding different prison systems, it's fascinating to see how the Japanese approach emphasizes strict rules and discipline to create a sense of order and purpose for prisoners. This structured environment aims to guide individuals towards rehabilitation and eventual reintegration into society, offering a path to becoming productive citizens.
    In contrast, Western prisons are often criticized for potentially fostering chaos by allowing more freedom and access to modern comforts within the prison walls. This leniency can sometimes lead to a lack of accountability and motivation for inmates to work towards positive change and reintegration into society.
    Both systems have their strengths and weaknesses, with the Japanese system focusing on discipline and regimentation while the Western system may prioritize individual rights and autonomy. The key lies in finding a balance that effectively promotes rehabilitation and reduces recidivism, taking into account cultural norms, societal values, and available resources for prisoner programs and support.
