Suddenly is game of snatch?

A youth group? A youth group is something like the Boy Scouts. These are a gang of teenage punks.

These punks are young, dumb, and full of some. This is no "youth group" but a group of undisciplined punks. One of them will get to taste the reality as a legal adult!

Send them all to JSDF Basic Training as an opportunity to get their stuff sorted(training only, not actual enlistment) . At the end of the training, maybe they'll have some sense. Many troubled youths in years past got sorted that way.

"A youth group?" Mine never did anything like this. We just canoed and camped : D

What they should’ve done was take all those punks, surround both gangs with armed cops in a large circle.

And let them finish the fight. No rules.

The last hoodlum to survive gets to walk. All others either go to jail or to the morgue.

arrested on the spot for entering the police station without a just cause

that's a criminal offense? Wonder what prompted authorities to come up with that legislation, I guess people barging into kobans to snatch an officer's sidearm?

Which one? The oldest one mentioned is 18, which means he is still considered a "juvenile" here and only gets a slap on the wrist.

I've encountered "youth groups" before. As long as you're not on their turf, a single word and resolute attitude is enough to make them disperse.

No charge for trying to steal a police officers gun? Does that mean it’s legal to steal a police officer’s gun?

Where are their fathers?

An 18-year-old man was arrested on the spot for entering the police station without a just cause

A tax-paying member of the public can get arrested for this?

Amazing Japan

Why bother snatching it? If you wait long enough, some cop will leave his firearm in a convenience story toilet.

Maybe he was just doing a random firearm inspection to ensure the safety was on!

I guess you have been in hibernation for a while huh?

Because that's how healthy societies work, and why all the intelligent people are pushing for this type of "justice", right?
