"almost arrested" seems a slight exaggeration to me....

You offer that as evidence of almost being arrested? On what planet was that "almost arrested"?

Drop the hyperbole.

At first I thought it was in the subway, but now I think it's in an electronics shop?

My loose translation:
they ask if they can see this guys identification.
Can we copy the name?
One cop goes off to do so, while the other continues conversation in an apologetic manner.
explains what they do:
we just write down the name, etc. It's what we do around here (servicio?), there are many gaijins in this area.
Has this happened to you before?
gaijin: ehm, yes, about 4 times since 2005

Police helps another customer to find his way and comes back to chit chat a bit more.
Is that an mp3 in your ear?
no it's part of my computer.
They talk about the camera

No the big one was too expensive.

Some laughter.
It all seems very friendly and relaxed to me.

that's the gist I got.
But hey, I seriously flunked my listening test, so I could be way off...

I do wonder if the police are aware of being filmed?
If so, they are being very laidback about it.

これで「almost arrested ò_ó」というなら、日本には住まない方が無難です。
愛知県警はさすがに拳銃籠城男の逮捕に23時間もかけただけあって、紳士的にすら見えます。

It's Nagoya Station.

gaijin: ehm, yes, about 5 times (translation says 4 times) since 2005

The cop suggests that the reason they check is because sometimes people stay past their visa limit, but that this gaijin is OK. So there shouldn't be a problem, and they'll just note his name.

Police helps another customer to find his way and comes back to chit chat a bit more.
Is that an mp3 in your ear?
no a computer.
What did you buy?
a camera.
The big one?
No the big one was too expensive.

Just before the other person asks the cop for directions, he asks the gaijin where he's going. The gaijin says Bic Camera, an electronics chain, and Softmap, a computer store. After giving the civilian directions, the cop asks the gaijin if he's going to buy a Walkman. The gaijin replies that he's buying computer parts. He then says that Bic Camera is expensive.

Some laughter.

No joke. I hope if I'm ever almost arrested it's in as friendly and apologetic a manner.

Well, from their POV (and that of the current prefectural and national government), they're doing absolutely nothing wrong, or even the least bit quirky.

ALMOST ARRESTEDというのは、ジョークだけですよ。動画の字幕とおり、日本の警察の方は親切で、つかめるより教えるって事を役目に優先します。
でもね、ただ、外人の顔をみれば、すぐチェックしに来るなんてちょっとね・・・

※in order of the portuguese captions:


hi

sumimasen,

I am a japanese cop, you know?

where are you from?

may I do a little rapid check with your documents?

can you wait a minute?

ok!

just to confirm..

may I copy your ID informations?

ok? may I?

today, we gonna talk to you,

to copy your ID card number and check with your name to see if everything´s alright

we will check your name, ok?

it´s our service

well, for a moment it is

ok, understood..

sorry, several times we meet people who don´t have ID card..

but you, I´m seeing that´s is ok

but sometimes the ID might be 切れてる(I dunno in english XD)

but it´s just a confirmation, don´t worry

it´s the first time you´ve been stopped?

since 2005, 4 times

sumimasen, nowdays a lot of gaijin enter/out from Japan

today is your free day? where were you going..?

what you were going to buy..?

*and while the another cop was confirming the card, the cop talks about shops, bergens, etc..

That is NOT the way you attempted to present it in your first post. You got caught with your pants down and now you're trying to backpedal.

O, okay, I ended up thinking it was in a mall, or something ^_^

Who's POV is that? Who are not being quirky?

Thanks for the comments on my translation ^_^

Well, Adriano, Mike is right. sometimes you just need to think before you post... You tried to be shocking and ended up shocking yourself.

What's with the angry smiley?

You can be a Debitou's fan, no prob...
I reckon most of us don't understand that much Portuguese, so there is no way we can judge how coloured the translation is.
But this video does not warrant the agressive title you gave this thread, nor the angry face you added.

Thanks for translating, seems like a relaxed conversation to me aswell.

If you want to see real prejudice, come visit England and try to report a crime...
