Chinese Media Complains About ‘Clumsy, Droopy, Paunchy, Old’ Security Guards

China’s state-run Global Times published a scathing critique of Chinese security staff on Wednesday, deriding many security guards as poorly trained, out-of-shape, and too elderly for their demanding positions. Although it was only very briefly mentioned in the article, this concern was prompted by last week’s attack on a school classroom in Beijing.
