Glad the Japanese police is onto the most dangerous threats to society.

I'm surprised they're arresting employed people now. That's some serious meiwaku.

I am going to guess that this is sarcasm and that the intended meaning is that the police should deal with serious crimes and ignore copyright violations and such. That is an idea that is almost always mentioned in threads about this subject.

It seems to me that the Japanese police actually are dealing with serious crimes, and still manage to have time to enforce other laws.
I am sure that the general nature of Japanese society contributes greatly to the low crime rate, but I also believe that the rate of violent crimes would not be as low as it is if the police were not doing a good job.

Indeed.
I wonder if one reason why these reports usually mention unemployed people is because people who are employed really are less likely to do this kind of thing, due to concerns about how it will reflect on their employers and co-workers?

Probably propaganda about "a hard-working employed businessman couldn't possibly do anything illegal, but the evil, lazy, and selfish unemployed is a cancer to Japanese prosperity. Not only should they be arrested, but dealt a summary execution." I wouldn't be surprised if the sentences are different depending on how they're employed, and if the police prefer to arrest the unemployed.

They have nothing else to do.
