Can their journalists get any story right? Or, write copy without mistakes? Or, at least write objectively? When they can’t do their own job right, why are they targeting these poor people?

Guys who can successfully fight armed thieves or fit the physical requirements as per the rules would rather join the military or the police. Why would they be willing to sit for ever on a stool at an ATM? What good are cops anyway? There was one ATM customer who staked out at a kiosk and caught the thief who attacked him a few days back. When he took the thief to the police station, the cop asked the guy to “settle” the matter with the thief.

ET gets airheads to talk up economic hitman, instead of experienced market operators
ET wasn’t like this always.
