    Obama e-mail teenager gets US ban

    teenager from Bedfordshire has been banned from entering the United States for life for sending a "threatening" e-mail to the White House.

    Luke Angel, 17, of Silsoe, was investigated after he expressed his dislike of President Barack Obama and the US Government.

    Bedfordshire police, who then visited Luke, said the e-mail was full of abusive and threatening language.
    "He was told that he wouldn't be able to go to America," they added.

    A spokeswoman said it was a case of a boy "being silly" and no criminal action was being taken.

    What is there to say about that? A life ban may be a bit over the top, considering our hypocracy at the Mexican border.

    And considering he is a kid. Great handling by the US government. A 17 year old is now on the same list as Bin Laden for those banned from entering America. /facepalm

    If he'd been a Mexican, you can bet your sweet ass he wouldn't have gotten a life ban.

    This is motivated by nothing except stupidity by someone or someones at DHS or State Dept. Its got nothing to do with politics or race.

    Well you see it takes you to insult the Obama administration to get thrown out of the US, but squandering billions of legal citizen tax payer money is tolerable.

    Without knowing exactly what he wrote in the e-mail, it's hard to say whether this was warranted or not. I'm guessing not, but don't know for sure.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
