Have you ever flipped out your cell phone in the mall and began to chat really loudly with your buddy? Have people ever stared at you, slightly annoyed, and you just ignored them? The Japanese are taking a stand against these rude, improper behaviors!
Japan has recently drafted men ages 60 and older as the "Manner Police". We question: Is it really worth the money people are paying in taxes? Shouldn’t people spend their tax dollars on something more effective and worthwhile? And, more importantly, should the Japanese citizens receive punishment for "impolite behavior" in public?
Don’t like the idea? Feel like rioting? Well, good luck! The "Manner Police" are also well equipped against rioters — they each have their own personal bodyguards! Older citizens having younger guards protecting them. That’s an interesting thought…
What do you think? Is punishing people for bad conduct a good idea, or is it totally bogus?
