An armed gang forced their way into a bullion storage area, threatened staff, then were arrested while trying to escape. Police and senior management knew all this would happen, but did nothing to prevent it. Presumably somebody decided that catching the criminals with undeniable evidence would be more effective in the long term than preventing a terrifying experience for the company staff. They claim to have arranged counselling for the staff.

I'm not sure whether or not the commercial and state authorities made the right decision. I can see the reasons they did, but I'm not convinced from that report that it was a good decision. I wouldn't be surprised if somebody sued.

(Goodness, I'm posting a lot to LJ today. Anybody would think I'm in total limbo at work.)
