So the USA is the only comsumer of illegal drugs? As for assualt weapons it`s illegal you can`t make it anymore illegal besides fully automatic weapons aren`t coming from here you may want to look at China and former soviet republics for those.

she was honored because she was using, for some unknown reason, her cellphone camera.

"La Estanzuela" comes up in a google search as being in Guatemala, adding the word "mexico" brings up links to a national park. It isn`t until to get to a map search do you see a tiny tiny village well south of Monterey.

Forgive me if I was wrong, The video description , on youtube, does not say Mexico in it and I don`t assume what country the content is from by the nature of it`s content.

I`ve seen videos on foreign `youtube` like sights with titles like `Dumb American` or something similar only to search and find the content came Canada, England, Australia or elsewhere.

Btw, Estanzuela, Guatemala actually has a homicide rate of 239 per 100,000 people per year, It`s a rather violent place compared to many US cities.

So forgive me if I mistook a tiny town no one has heard of, in Mexico, for a violent region of Guatemala known for its high crime rate.

That was a wonderful idea of her to calm them. I glad she had the courage to keep them calm in that desperate time.

Luckily for me I don`t watch Fox news...or listen to it...or acknowledge its existence... I`m just surprised CNN or even CBS news didn`t pick it up....no, I`m not. Like I said, it`s in a "third world country". Like you said, not sensational enough.

if this did happen, she would have pulled a rifle and handgun out of her desk and gave the pistol to the blackest kid

Right? Right?...wrong

What you people don`t know is that a mexican is born with no fear. I bet that any adult from the US would have been pooting bricks in that same situation.

It was a huge deal in Mexico. Not sensational enough (no kids died) to get picked up by Fox news.
CrakrJak:
I love your confidence... This happened just south of Monterey Mexico in a small suburb.
And she was recording this because she wanted to document what happened so others can learn what to do in this kind of situations which sadly are happening more and more often all over Mexico. But I guess it’s a small price to pay so Americans can have access to illegal drugs and the right to sell assault weapons indiscriminately.

If this had happened in America, or even a European country, this woman would be on the front page of papers and would be lauded as a hero. But because it happened in a Spanish speaking country, and because it happened because of a drug war being funded by Americans, this is the first I`ve heard of it.

Taken from an different upload of the same vid -
`This video was taken by the nursery teacher of a kinder garden in La Estanzuela, Monterrey Mex on May 27 2011.
The shooting involved two rival drug cartels and took place outside the kinder garden. Five people died outside. The teacher Martha Rivera Alanís, in order to keep the children safe, sang a song to them with instructions on how to lie on the floor to avoid being killed.
A few days later the teacher was honoured by her bravery... Meanwhile at the same time, near the kinder garden, some taxi drivers were killed...`

Is there a back story about the location? Strength to calm others during dramatic times is one of the best traits to have.
