Beware of perverts

While studying for my Criminal Behavior final I have later today I looked up a word I've never heard before - frottage in the context of sexual offenders and I found a sad state/sign of affairs in Japan:

This is one of Japan's dark spots. I remember by Canadian friend and I were on a train and hassled a guy for goping a school girl. Everyone looked at us as if we were the wierdos. I think the very liberal use of taze guns in Japan should start. Then maybe the pervs will stick to thier hentai mangas and leave the girls alone.

It's my understanding that in recent (I don't know how "recent" recent is though) that they've taken groping very seriously in Japan. I've heard you can take any offender to a train station employee for them to handle and have heard of instances of people either doing it for themselves or on behalf of someone. I'm not really sure what happens to the offenders though, but this is a big change.
