A school principal in Ushimado, Okayama Prefecture, has been arrested for circulating composite photos of a former colleague.
Tsuyoshi Hashimoto was apprehended after police caught him distributing the pictures on a road near his 34-year-old victim’s home. Mr. Hashimoto, who it would appear is a skilled user of Photoshop, had attached the fellow teacher’s face to a nude body. And if this wasn’t enough, the photograph contained the woman’s name and address, the message Come to my house, and several obscene statements which sadly weren’t disclosed.
It seems that the police were on the lookout in the area, as the victim had complained that similar pictures had been found around her home since December of last year. When questioned about his motives, the peeved principal said, “I was angry at her attitude and her language.”
The vice principal at Mr. Hashimoto’s school was shocked to hear the news, but rather surprisingly claimed, “He doesn’t have any trouble with the teacher now.” The teacher in question would perhaps beg to differ.
