I love living where the most newsworthy crime involves a woman wearing only her underwear in public. How safe do you feel where you live?

43-year-old woman arrested for stripping down to her underwear outside Shizuoka Station
Police in Shizuoka have arrested an unemployed 43-year-old woman for committing an indecent act after she stripped down to her underwear outside JR Shizuoka Station on Saturday.
According to police, the incident occurred in the plaza in front of the station’s north exit at around 1:40 p.m. Fuji TV reported that the woman, Junko Miyagawa, took off her shoes, her pink short-sleeved polo shirt and her long black pants, leaving her clad only in her bra and panties.
Police at a nearby koban were notified and arrested Miyagawa, a resident of Numazu, as she was about to go up the station escalator. Miyagawa was quoted by police as saying she was hot and wanted to cool off for a little while.
According to the Japan Meteorological Agency, the temperature at the time was 29.8 degrees.
