I passed by this poster in the station for a week or so before taking a good look at what it had to say … and then I was pulling out my cell phone and snapping a photo.
It’s a poster released by the Tokyo Metropolitan Police concerning 暴力団 (boryokudan), or the organized crime syndicate. It specifically concerns how best to 追放 (tsuiho), or drive them out. Three helpful suggestions are offered there on the bottom right:
Do not fear them
Hell, yeah! Stand your ground!
Do not give them money
Show those bastards who’s boss!
Do not employ their services
Your police department at work, folks.
Feeling safer yet?
