Dye Balls

A long time ago, I mentioned one of Japan’s awesome crime-fighting techniques. But I realized that I had never posted pictures of it.

Well, over the holidays when we were sending packages to friends and family, I decided to snap a few pictures of all the dye balls lined up at the post office. I guess the most surprising thing to me was that they were lined up on the counter, at each register, in plain view. Seems like it would be just as easy for the perpetrator of a crime to throw them at the employee, as it would be for the employee to throw them at the perpetrator. Or, since there were two at each station, perhaps they each get one and can enjoy a good game of paintball.

    Hmm. That would never work here. Think how often postal employees would be pelted by frustrated customers…
