We must eradicate violence firmly.

Yahoo! News reported that a Japanese mayor was shot dead by a mobster. I would have never expected them to act like American gangsters; Japanese mobsters revenge themselves quite elegantly.
This quote by the Shinzo Abe (Japanese prime minister) seem rather permissive to me. "This murder, which took place in the middle of an election campaign, is a threat to democracy," Abe said early Wednesday. "We must eradicate violence firmly."
So the Yakuza can do whatever they want as long as there’s no violence? No wonder, Japan’s going to the dogs. In Japan, everything’s ok but don’t ever rock the boat or make too much noise. Appreciate any comments about this. I’m not quite sure of Japanese mentality yet.
