Concerning "safe" Japan from a Japanese

I found this in the comments section of an article on this the Hawker's murder:

...I would strongly recommend that you forget the stereotype about Japan and its people. Politicians & law enforcement are seriously corrupted, as in many parts of the world, and you will find a number of things that just do not make sense, including laws. I’m sorry to say this, but laws in Japan are not designed to protect people at all.

I’d like to repeat for those who plan to visit Japan; do your homework, study about the safety-related conditions in modern Japan, and know that God does not protect you from murderers...Full article and full comment here. You can find the full comment under "Ken."
