In a bizarre turn of events in Sapporo, Japan, a 71-year-old man made an unusual decision to get himself arrested. With a kitchen knife in hand, he boldly walked into a local police station and declared to the officer on duty, "I want to be arrested. I brought a knife."
This man's audacious act has left him facing charges under Japan's Firearms and Swords Act. According to law enforcement, he couldn't provide any valid reason for carrying the knife into the police station.
When questioned about his motives, the man's response was puzzling. He simply stated to investigators, "I thought I would get arrested if I caused a big incident."
It's not clear what the man was thinking, but he probably didn't realize that there are other ways to get arrested that don't involve breaking the law. For example, you could always just jaywalk or eat on the subway.
On a more serious note, if you ever find yourself feeling down or overwhelmed, don't hesitate to reach out to a friend, family member, or a mental health professional. There are people who genuinely care about your well-being and are ready to provide support when you need it most.
