Re: US Embassy calls the cops

Saudi Arabia has some job openings:
Saudi Arabia advertises for eight new executioners as beheading rate soars

A new meaning to the "Headhunter" profession.

SRF is reporting that some employees and sub-contractors of Protectas are convicted criminals (vorbestraft) and/or do not have Swiss weapon permits, although they are armed when guarding embassies in Bern. Protectas reportedly guards three to five embassies, including the US Embassy.

Protectas said in a statement that since its employees and sub-contractors are on embassy property they are not subject to the laws of Switzerland. A Protectas sub-contractor confided that he carried his weapon home in the evening, although he did not have a weapon permit, and so was in violation of Swiss law.

Maybe, but that doesn't mean there are none on embassy compounds at all. Actually, considering that there are bound to be confidential documents on any and probably every embassy's compound which do deserve protection, it seems reasonable to assume that at least light weapons are on the compound.

Not only on the US embassy in Bern, but on every one of/in every country. That would be nothing but a reasonable precautionary measure.
