Re: Zurich Christmas market lack of Security

And you don't say in your post... why are security barriers at the Zurich Christmas market needed? When I was there a few weeks ago I saw police waiting outside to keep order.


We are not talking about the security barriers you find at concerts checking peoples bags... we talk about the concrete blocks known as "Merkel Lego" in Germany:





A couple of cops standing around wont stop a truck.


Bottom line:
a) Switzerland never had a Muslim extremist attack
b) Switzerland has not been part of the countries that fought IS, so it was never really on the target list for extremists either...
c) a truck attack makes sense in big and wide squares where a suicide attacker can drive a large vehicle with speed into a group of victims. Zurich center and the places where the market is on is far from ideal for that...


Edzoom once again picked the least newsworthy filler story on 20min, made an even less relevant video on it, did not understand the differences between the barriers that protect people and the ones that protect the wealth of a jeweler... and promotes his crap content on here.
