    The demographic realities dictate that one way or another, more and more foreigners are coming here. Either to work and pay tax or with assult rifles to take over (speaking within the prisim of the prevailing socio-economic order that exists in Japan and its big neighbours in China, Russia and USA.) . If you prefer the former I suggest you reconcile yourself to the fact that foreigners have rights and desist being in such a terrible state of nervous irritation when anyone is so bold as to point this out.
    Are you suggesting we take up arms against the status quo because you were asked for ID? Are you really that delusional?

    How many times do you need to repeat the same negative story you told in your other thread. Did it actually surprise you that you evoked such a reaction?

    I'm pretty sure you've beaten your story into the ground, so why continue to repeat the same things over and over? I think you need to learn how to better pick your battles, both on the subjects you argue and when you want to openly defy the police who may or may not be racist, but in the end ARE just doing their job.

    If you're really so attached to your interpretation of the law, maybe you should try to get the law refined so it is more clear on this point instead of endlessly railing against the individual officers, especially to a bunch of people that think your interpretation is incorrect.

    OR you could continue to believe your interpretation, and when you are arrested, the court's findings would set a precedent for all of us. Just how much do you trust your interpretation?
