Yakuza gang hands out treats to 800 kids during Halloween

Ironically in today’s day and age the mafia/yakuza/la cosa nostra embodies more about family and loyalty to blood than many of today’s units where the largest crime committed is probably adultery. In Kobe City, the Yamaguchi-gumi (Japan’s largest Yakuza group) handed out sweets to around 800 attendees on October 31st. While the Hyogo Prefectural Police requested they stop this action in order that they don’t wrongfully trick kids into thinking they’re good guys sadly the mobsters declined and went on ahead.

It was only several decades ago that the Japanese police actually enlisted the help of Japanese yakuza groups to help kick out the Chinese and Korean mafia groups operating inside the land of the rising sun. The sort of if we find a dead body in a dumpster we’ll file it but won’t investigate type of police work.

In the end the police let the show go on – perhaps a sign that crime eventually does pay!
