Yaks are getting drunk. Or desperate. Or both.

The driver was bleeding from his abdomen,

Heal fully, driver, hopefully the police will catch the shooter quickly, get him to explain why he left his residency with a weapon, and take away all weapons he's found to possess. Cowards and thugs leave their house carrying a weapon.

This is crazy news for Japan. If it continues perhaps taxis should shift to only cashlese services. Lets hope the gunmen is found and jailed for a very long time. Prayers to the driver and family.

Who wrote this really?

Assuming Yakuza don't commit random armed robberies of civilians (a 'no-no' in those organizations from what I understand), I wonder where the guy got the gun?

Kawaguchi, Warabi, Akabane....area known for low level yakuza and yankee types. Had to work in Urawa for a couple of years and they often harass people.

I venture to say that is more profitable and much less penalty getting caught

Are you serious?! It's crazy for any nation outside the US and developing nations.

Well, that's good news.

I find it quite funny how some readers here react to every article about a crime by blaming it on a "Yak" (which is a Tibetan cow actually). In this case, we have idea of the perp was a Yak or a non-Yak.

Also known for certain other types, especially Warabi.
