Violent crime report that can't help but brighten up your day

Did anyone read Blick am abend last night? I saw this picture and almost fell off my chair. It's ridiculous. Was there ever a less intimidating mugging? The guy in the middle looks as if he's waiting for a kiss. And why is the guy on the right not wearing a shirt? And smoking? I also had no clue that violent crime in Switzerland was carried out by people who'd recently been gardening.

A wonderful example of fine Swiss jounalism/editing. All that's missing is Ivan S. tattooed accross one of the assailants' foreheads.

Why is the mugger on the left wearing a jacket that is obviously 2 sizes too big for him?

He stole it from someone else?
I have mentioned that currently the creative industries have gone amateur, this is just 1 of many examples. Produced very cheaply & the producer producer pocketed loads of money.

"Blick am Abend" does not count as journalism.... nor is there any evidence that it is edited either...

This is discriminatory towards white people. Why does the suspect always have to be a young white male!

Smokers? So far as I can tell the cigarette is not lit?
Edit, neither cigarette appears to be lit?

Indeed, it should be an East and a South Asian girl intimidating an elderly Native American gent, just for PCs sake.

Maybe it's not a gun, just one of those novelty lighters!

There are laws here about smoking in the workplace. Switzerland isn't the backwards place everyone seems to think it is.

Why discriminate against criminals? Just because somebody is a criminal doesn't mean they break the law.

Case in point, if you're going to throw stone, make sure Wilhelm Tell isn't driving in his Rav4
