けいさつ

あらぬところをケガしてしまった。 きったはった(しゅじゅつ)してもらってからもう2しゅうかんほどたった。 けれども、まだ、うごきづらい。

やることがないので、おおきいほんでもよもうか、と、おもった。 が、おもっただけ。 とりあえず、まえにかったちいさいほんをみた

グリコ・森永事件

宮崎学、 大谷昭宏

ペーパバック。 なんでもいいから、うれさえすればよい、というところからでている。 そのわりには、おおきいほんやでも、しばらくみかけなかった。 ちかごろ刷り(print)なおしたのかな。

じけんのなりゆきとかには、ほとんどきょうみないのだけど、宮崎さんは、ほんとのことをえんりょなく言ってしまうときがあって、そこがすてきですきである。 この本だと、たとえばこんなくだり:

警察とヤクザは本質的に同じである。 両者の違いは、警察は国家権力を背景としており、ヤクザは民間の暴力装置を背景としている。 それだけである。

Police and Yakuza are essentially the same.  The only difference is that one has state violence and the other has non-state violence as their bases of power.

これとおなじかんがえをもっているし、あるときは、けいさつはヤクザのおてつだいだとおもっていたこともある。 だけれど、こういうことをいつもいいつづけるのは、なかなかできない。 はなすあいてのなかまが、けいさつだったときなどは、ことにいいづらい。 マイノリティのおまわりさんも、いるかもしれないし。 まあ、おまわりさんは、せいしきのけいさつかんではないけれども。

    What a coincidence. I was just wondering (last night) why there had been no posts for a while. Either my last ‘geeksville’ comment had upset you or something had happened. As I concluded that the first possibility was impossible, so maybe the second….
    OMG!
    What happened?! Did you fall down some stairs drunk?
    Please take it easy!!! O daiji ni and all that, old boy!

    Regarding the Yakusa, also a coincidence, as following your comments about this, I have been doing some reading.
    Well, they are in English, but rather easy to read I think?
    I recommend:

    Tokyo Vice by Jake Adelstein (about his experiences as a Yomiuri reporter and his battle with Goto Tadamasa) he has a webpage with updates on the gang scene:
    http://www.japansubculture.com/
    Lots of interesting stuff e.g. Yamaguchi gumi support was a factor in the DPJ’s election victory….

    Also Tokyo Underworld, by Robert Whiting (about the life of an American Gangster in Tokyo from 1945 on.)

    Also Yakuza by David Kaplan and Alec Dubro detail the role of the yakusa in Japan’s political economy. But this is more ‘academic’ and harder to read.

    Anyway, please rest up.

    BTW: I dont know if you wrote in hiragana with moi in mind, but I find it much harder to read than kanji based japanese…of course, if done for sylistic purposes then ignore, as I am indeed a narcissistic, selfish, english bastard!!!!

      Lots of info. Thanks.

      In the グリコ・森永 cases, threatening letters were written solely in hiragana. My post is an homage to the unidentified criminals.

      I must admit that the post looks somewhat flat and not so easy to grasp crisply. Mixing kanji and katakana would have made the post have some kind of rhythm. Though I want to stick to hiragana-heavy style in my writing, I will try to make my posts look nicer somehow.

      I do not like kanji because:
      – I cannot write it;
      – Kanji is for elite;
      – Kanji is a tool to discriminate foreign workers nowadays;
      – Stinky people in 漢字能力検定協会 has been making tons of stinky money with this tool;
      – etc.
