I lived in Japan for many years..and have got to say the Yakuza are the least violent gang in history..

I have also studied many gangs and most are vicious, cruel, and irdeemable thugs..but not the Yakuza..

They only kidnap women and sell drugs..

being the least violent gang among gangs isn't that honorable, at the end of the day, they're still a gang.

Bollocks! Watch Outrage. They didn't even order some Ramen in the resto where they stabbed the cook with a chopstick to the skull. I mean... It's a Ramen house! The least they could have done was ask for some basic Ramen. No one's asking them to go all-out and order the Super topping ramen supreme! Just basic ramen. But noooooooo. This "We gonna stab you without even ordering your specialty!" attitude is kinda dishonourable.

Yakuza don't rob 90 year old women in wheelchairs for 20 dollars, they don't rob run down liquor stores for 200 dollars while killing one or two victims, they don't commit much more horrendous acts American gangs do.

#15 Posted by joshmightbe (24692 posts) - - Show Bio

They're willing to murder innocent people for money. Anyone with real honor would be disgusted with them along with everyone else involved in organized crime

Yeah, because lying to and abducting women from other countries and bringing them to Japan to sell their bodies against their will, under threat of beating and other forms of violence, or just drugging the women into a state where they can't control themselves to say no is perfectly civil. Also, some of the women are forced to prostitution due to family or personal debt; debts to Yakuza loan sharks which are illegal due to the crazy-high/ridiculous interest rates(but when they've exhausted all other options, they turn to the sharks), or because they are foreigners(from places like Mexico and so on, the yakuza convince them that they can come to Japan to get a proper job and experience the culture, but instead the women find themselves trapped in place where the men expect them to 'service' them, where running away is hard, since their skin color would make it hard to blend in with the crowd and escape, and if the escape is not succesful then there are violent punishments, and where they cannot understand the language and outright ask for aid. Some of these women were even young ladies with degrees). And since you've lived in Japan, you should probably know that Japanese people don't usually like getting mixed up into troublesome or dangerous affairs, and would likely turn a blind eye to this. You should also know that sometimes Asian people tend to not be too direct when it comes to confrontation, so while the Yakuza are not outright cruel and brutal, like L.A. or Detroit gangs, and don't commit too much loud, flashy shootings and fights, they are still not to be underestimated and they can be vicious.

And we all know how dangerous drugs can be.

The women and drugs are only a fraction of it. You must not read Asian news much, huh? And even if you did, I doubt that it would report too much on this subject. More likely articles would contain something about the new kitten-petting cafe and safe/maybe positive topics like celebrities, the weather, politics, the economy and foreign events.. Maybe you've spent too much time teaching english to middle-school students to pay attention to human rights reports.

I edited it.

How is kidnapping women and selling drugs honorable?........

Seems the exact opposite to me. They're just a lower type of scum.

#27 Edited by TrollHunter (148 posts) - - Show Bio

Its a trick played on young wild people by Old scared people

to get them to behave, like telling a child a story about a hero who saves the day. The old Yahuza twist the idea of honor to mean something that allows people to live with what they have done & control those younger who now do it.

The Yakuza doesn't really have any true honor, if they did they would take a good hard look at themselves & make the choice to face what they are or pretend to be something their obviously not.

In short the Yakuza have no honor it's all a business image, a lie it's bull shit

They only kidnap and sell drugs? Wow. Those upstanding citizens really don't get the respect they ought to have because so many other gangs do a lot worse... Truly, they are indeed a credit to the Nation of Japan. All other forms of organized crime could learn a lot from their shining example.

I don't understand how ANYONE can think the Yakuza are honorable. If you cross them hard enough they won't only come for you but your entire family. There's nothing honorable about that.

#37 Posted by redbird3rdboywonder (3876 posts) - - Show Bio

@youngpotter:How can you put Yakuza and the words least violent/honorable in the same sentence. The Yakuza are one of the most dangerous gangs EVER. They makethe Bloods, Crips, and etc.. look lie children with guns which for lack of a better word they are. The Yakuza chop peoples heads off and sell opium which is more dangerous than meth and coke and if it were to ever hit america would probably cause massive destruction
