Crime DOES pay!

I'm sorry, but this is just wrong.

To crack down on welfare cheats, the Japanese government has devised a system that allows former Yakuza gangsters to claim benefits legally.

Under the new guidelines, a member of Yakuza, Japan's mafia, who has left the criminal world or grown too old to steal, need only provide a letter signed by a crime boss stating he is no longer part of the mob, the Times of London reported.
So, you led a life of crime and now the government will take care of you. grrrr...
