Corn_Fed: Xythero: So, according to this glowing article, he was a crime boss that didn't commit any crimes? Wouldn't that just make him a boss?Yeah, that's what I'm not getting either. I'm sure there is much I don't understand about the whole thing, but isn't Yakuza inherently an underground mafia organization making money illegally?

Buddhism has always had a great martial tradition/been used to organize violent thugs.That's China.[www.enchantedlearning.com image 244x160]Yakuza are Japanese.[geographyblog.eu image 416x342]It's generally considered bad form and racist to confuse the two.

hardinparamedic: Bender The Offender: hardinparamedic: And by discipline, he means his personal army of street thugs.Good thing you took the time to read the article or your comment would make you look like a farking idiot who didn't even bother to read the article.FTFA: At the time of his death, he was the leader of a 150-man group in Shinjuku, and one of the top yakuza in the Inagawa-kai, Japan's third-largest organized crime group.Yeah. I should be sad that a mob boss died.I'll play a funeral march for him."Noble Gangbangers" are still bangers. And they're not as "noble and nice" as they portray themselves as.I'll use the example of Pablo Escobar as the quintessential "hero of the people" gangster.
