    assassination may be an unpopular act, but it is a valid means of righting a perceived social ill. post ww2 japan is the poster child of a nation in transition. its probably too soon to have another Japanese badass, but i suggest yukio mishima- a serious weirdo who tried ( and failed) to incite revolution in 1970.

    Hey Phrost,

    How many times does it need to be stated that this is "Badass of the Month", not "Knight in Shining Armor of the Month"?

    I'm sorry, but most of the stories published in this section, gave the "Knight in shining armour" impression. So we, your readers did expect something similar. I look forward to this section every month. And yes, I find the glorification of a criminal offensive (one man's crime is another's heroism, notwithstanding).

    "If this article offends you, then it wasn't written for you."

    I know this is your site and all and that you make the rules. So just wondering if the above statement could go into the articles as a disclaimer or something.


    Rgds,
    Neil

    There was a lenghty explanation for it in this particular article, and it still didn't stop people from whining.

    Meh, we'll probably just use squeaky-clean badasses from now on just to cut down on the drama.
