I’m sure there are people that will claim there’s only one point of view being reported here
there are 3 sides to every story-your side, my side, and the truth,” where the truth lies somewhere in the middle, you’ve got to admit the truth to this story is pretty unconscionableDoes that mean if one says Jim M is a liar, and another says Jim M is not a liar, he is half a liar? I don't understand it.
Now, if James' story above were true, it would be a serious crime by the police. What we should do as a law-abiding Japanese citizen is
(1) To check if this story is true. And if it is true,
(2) To help James to file a formal complaint.
I've offered the help but Mr Arudo has blocked it.
I've checked with Hiragana Times and Osaka Prefectural Government’s Human Rights department.
I've got the responses.

This is the response concerning the matter you asked by the mail. We have investigated the matter and we have checked the officer in charge at the time, but it turned out that there was no such claim as it was cited. Osaka prefecture policy-planning human right department Osaka Jinken
おたずねの件ですが、すでに当事者間で済んでいると聞いていますWhen asked if Hiragana Times confirmed the fact, Hiragana Times wrote,
As for the matter you are asking about, we hear that the matter has been settled among the people concerned. Hiragana Times

Let us refrain from commenting. Please understand.
We don't know who "Jim M" linked to Debito's site is, but at least James in the article wrote,
the couple has reported the events to the American Consulate, Amnesty International, the United Nations and the Osaka Prefectural Government’s Human Rights department, all of which are monitoring and investigating the case
If this is true, there must be the result of the investigation. So far our checking points to the direction that this story is untrue, or this story is not entirely true.
I don't see why James cannot submit the result of the investigation by the American Consulate, Amnesty International if his story is true.
Jim M, if you are James in the article, please submit the report by them so that we may help you.
Mr Arudou, Let's check the fact first, don't jump to the conclusion. That is the first thing we should do if we want to help James and help Japanese society better. Don't you think so, Mr Arudou?
If you don't care about the truth, about resolving the problem, but you just want to gain reputation by making up story, covering up the facts, that will be another story though. (See Mr Macgovern and Mr Ibdor's cases in this post)
