Youth Crime Decreases, Elderly Crime Increases

The Japanese government has published some data showing that the criminality of the population over 65 years old has surpassed the youth criminality in absolut numbers. Last year 23,000 were commited by people older than 65, while only 20,000 crimes were committed by people between 14 and 19. One of the most frequent crimes committed by old people is shoplifting at supermarkets. This is just another curious fact about the long-lived Japanese population.
