  •  Doesn't Look Real (6+ / 0-)

    I don't think there is anywhere in the world where somebody would be standing casually next to a group of school children with an automatic weapon slung over the shoulder and a purse in the other hand. It looks ridiculousness. Where is the magazine clips - certainly she isn't touting an armed weapon around.

    Either this picture is staged, photo shopped or she is caring something that looks like a automatic rifle but isn't actually one - or least not a really fully functional one.  I can't imagine a situation in which somebody would need that kind of weapon at the ready and won't also be fully kitted out in military gear and look like they are fully alert. If that is a real loaded weapon, then I sure as hell won't feel safer having her anywhere near me or my kid.

      Some relatives of mine went to Israel on a vacation with their church group and stayed for a few weeks with an Israeli family.  They stated (and have pictures to prove it) that when there is a large tour group or school field trip, they have to have an armed guard, usually a former solider.   So the photo could be real, but as mentioned above, it is a guard, not a teacher.
