|Meet the, er, "new" generation of Japanese criminality.|
In a reflection of Japan’s graying society, police took action against more elderly people than juveniles in criminal cases for the first time in the six months to June this year, new figures show. The National Police Agency said Thursday the number of people aged 65 or older subject to police action reached 23,656 between January and June, compared to 19,670 for those aged 14-19. It marked the first time the elderly exceeded teens in crime statistics since the agency began compiling data by age group in 1989.So watch out for that guy with the walking stick.
