Well, those are some classy crime lords. Is it weird to have some level of respect for them?

wait so... I don't understand anything anymore. In Japan they announce out in the open where their headquarters are, and that they're yakuza, and they even announce who the godfather is... and the police don't do anyting lol?

If gangs in America did that... they'd be taken down or something. Cuz of surveillance and I think simiply announcing that is enough for some conspiracy statutes (not Halloween candy, but announcing ur headquarters and blahblha).

Mexico is neither in the US nor in South America, it's in North America.

Also, building churches is not the same as protecting people from death, considering the long, long history of persecution and crime by religious means.

Well, a lot of Yakuza are the desecendants of men who were allowed to carry Samurai weaponry by the Edo government, which would place them at a similar rank, so a certain degree of honour is to be expected.

The yakuza are extremely powerful. Compared to them, the street gangs here are fleas.

The government and police aren't doing anything too confrontational because of the power they wield. If gangs in the US had similar power, the police and government would hesitate too. Too bad the US has the strongest military in the world and the police force is quite well-equipped. Criminal organizations that aren't hidden are more difficult to establish.

I guess the government is sort of like a criminal organization in some ways, but I digress.

Since Japan is allowed to participate in war overseas now, do you think that their military might be trained to the level where they could control the yakuza?

Idk... the Italian mafias are... impressive. but I'm not so well-versed in the yakuza's influence. I mean, if they're like super super, then... yeah.

I don't think the gov. is a criminal org, but the corrupt politicians and the politicians who use their power for personal stuff... I think they're worse than the mafia sometimes. And the CIA is definitely worse than the yakuza or the mafia.... seriously.

Mexican drug lords are very religious and help in the construction of churches and stuff


Oh, thought everyone was like the Zetas. The more you know.


The Zetas are douchbags.


The zetas, new generation, knights templar, all of them are douches and that's putting it mildly.

As for topic I have to wonder what kind of parents are letting their kids get near gangsters. That's like in the US letting your kid visit a crack house just because they pass out candy.

Yakuza aren't all bad. They serve their people in their own ways and I do remember them being first responders after some natural disasters. They helped people more quickly and effectively than the government organizations and even donated food and water. The large, powerful, established yakuza groups also deter other criminals from setting up base in their territory so they can actually deter crime and protect neighborhoods. Think Whitebeard from One Piece. Not the best comparison but the only one I can come up with in my current tipsy state.

There is a code that usually keeps them in place but, like the government, there are some that are awful. If you don't call them gangsters and you only look at what they do, they aren't so different from government officials.

At least they're better than those brutal Chinese Triads and those warlike Mexican crime syndicates and stupid American gangs. I have a friend who works as a bartender in Japan and she tells me stories about the Yakuza guys that go there. You want to be extra polite to them and make sure you accommodate them with a nice area to enjoy their bar visit, but they don't do stuff like leave without paying or cause a drunken scene.
