BLURB

The term omawari-san stands for local police officers, literally “Mr. or Ms. Walks-around”, whom are supposed to do what police officers are supposed to do… but what can they do when they have done everything in their power to fight against crime? What’s left if there is no more crime? Power in its purest form, sitting in the kōban boxes, sleeping and waiting for the next big hit. Like dragons slumbering in their caves for hundreds of years, the nice and friendly officers slowly drink their coffee, but beware if you are involved in even the pettiest offense. Your bike was stolen and you were unlucky enough to report it? A dozen of officers will show up in your living room. You and your friends shared the cost of renting a car but none of you has a taxi license? Illegal taxi arrangement. Along with the decreasing number of criminal acts and the increasing number of police officers, non-crimes become crimes, order becomes disorder and questions become answers. There is only one way out. Don’t wake up the omawari-san. [András Gál]
