The voice on the street was taken note of.

Re. Chinese fishing boat captain being released although he had been arrested for obstructing the performance of official duty. It was asked which crime was really heavy in a city of a law-abiding country Japan.
The person who had answered that Chinese captain's crime was heavier said "(to disclose the image of 'sengoku38' ) was probably punishable in law though, but on national feeling, it was thought of as heroic" and "After all, this person (Chinese captain) should also be punished by laws of Japan".
On the other hand, the people who answered that the crime of disclosing the image of "sengoku38" was heavier said ｢As an information for the country, I think that the disclosure is good. However when an individual's feeling causes it to come out, it become an impossible task for the administration｣.
93 people in 100 answered that Chinese ship captain's crime was heavier than the person who made the video flow out.
People who answered that the Chinese captain's crime was heavier said "At first what Japan had said was "To make all decisions according to the law. Along the way, it was noted that attitudes had changed, it is a completely laughable story" "Being thought of as a law-abiding country, with such a weak-knee, I think Japan was ashamed of being named as a law-abiding country".
It seems that the incident has separated the Japanese government from its people.
