Modern Organized Crime

Nowadays you can use the internet for anything. Watch TV, buy goods, see the news, recruit gangster, any…wait, what? That’s right; Japan’s most notorious yakuza, Yamaguchi-gumi, have setup a homepage in a bid to improve their image and gain more members.

Now I know that membership in the yakuza is not illegal in Japan and that much like the Italian mob and Chinese triads, they have a glamorous image, but an organized crime syndicate with a homepage? Are you kidding me? That has to be one of the funniest thing I read this year.

What’s next; a magazine for their members? What? The Yamaguchi-gumi group already has that? Well…ok. Talk about a modern organized crime organization.
