Yakuza in Fukuoka has been involved in this kind of robbery in the past. Victims usually aimed due to not paying for protection from robbery.
"Necessary evil", is that so?

After years now the first serious mob activity I hear about.
English media don't report yakuza crimes frequently. About 4-5 executives were killed after the Yamaguchi-gumi split in Sept 2015. Yoichi Hasegawa and Tatsuyuki Hishida were important organizers of the Kobe Yamaguchi-gumi and murdered just after formation.
Next targeted were Ikeda-gumi bosses for their support of Kobe Yamaguch-gumi. This led to the murder cases of Tadashi Takagi and Tatsuo Saiki last summer.
Yakuza don't want more enemies. In times of conflict, attacking rivals finance to send messages is much more common way than violence.
