Japanese police "accidentally" give kerosene-soaked guy a lighter??


This is pretty unbelievable, and not in the fun anime waif-with-G-cups kind of way; F*cked Gaijin tells us Japanese police arrested a gentleman who was reported to be "acting violently," and the suspect doused himself with kerosene before they dragged his psychotic arse in for questioning. (How does one question that kind of behavior? "What the hell?" and "Is it medicinal or something?" are about the only ones that come to mind.)

Now, here the guy is, sitting in extremely flammable clothes that he's refused to change out of, in a building where - they emphasize this - no smoking is allowed. He requests a little smoke break, at which an officer gave him a pack of cigs and a lighter.

Do you see where this is going, and why the Human Torch was the most tasteful lead-in I could use? Of course the crazy dude set himself on fire and died of it, and now the police are kind of sorta wondering if the officers in charge of this incident should be arrested, or if it happened precisely as they said. No cameras or other witnesses were present, and Japanese police aren't the nicest interrogators in the world. If I was going to set a guy on fire, though, I don't think I'd try to blame it on that kind of carelessness: I'd rather come out and say it. Would you rather be known as a murderer or "that dumbass who gave that crazy guy that lighter"?
