Fake right wing meme alert: that WAS a cop guarding Obama's plane in London! [View all]

Friend posted this on Facebook this morning:



Basically the caption claims the man is "not engaged in a police action" but rather guarding "one man...(who) believes that you and I should not have access to the less powerful, less lethal semi-automatic civilian version of this weapon so that we can provide similar protection to our families and ourselves."

However, the real photo by Getty Images is below.



Notice a difference? The right wing page (http://www.facebook.com/WeLikeGunRights) that was the source of this photo posted an EDITED VERSION that wiped the word "POLICE" from the guard's vest!
