These Seniors Are Sending Themselves to Jail

Would you steal to escape loneliness? That's what more and more elderly folks in Japan are doing. 🇯🇵👮

    when Japanese people reach old age and retire, they aren’t treated like contributing members of society anymore. They are often isolated, ignored, and treated as if they are no longer needed. Younger family members are less able or willing to care for their older relatives. Sadly, the elders respond by acting out. If no one is paying attention to them in the grocery store anymore, what difference does it make if they steal something? No one will notice, anyway..desperate hearts of elders who feel forgotten. .can happen to anyone irrespective of Nations. .so sorry 😢

    Time to adopt a grandparent. I can imagine many people committing a crime to get basics, and it's a not an optimal system, as people can play rough in prison.
