    13-Year-Old Boy Questioned by Secret Service Over Facebook Posting

    This is almost silly.

    There was nothing threatening is the Young man's post simply a warning from what appears to be concerned young person.

    To question this boy without a parent there I thought was illegal. Too much TV I quess.

    If the SS is worried about this 13 year old in Tacoma, Wash, they must be having fits over some of the posts here.

    13-Year-Old Boy Questioned by Secret Service Over Facebook Posting - FoxNews.com
    A 13-year-old boy in Washington state faced federal interrogation by a Secret Service agent over a Facebook posting that warned President Obama of suicide bombers, q13fox.com reports.

    Vito LaPinta of Tacoma, Wash., said he posted a message on Facebook after Usama bin Laden's death, saying Obama should be careful of possible retaliatory acts against him by other terror members, according to the station.

    "I was saying how Usama was dead and for Obama to be careful because there could be suicide bombers," the boy told the station.

    Questionable comments made on internet. One secret service guy goes and checks it out. Talks to the kid. Leaves.

    What's the big deal, again?

    Facebook profiles are not positive identification. It could be anyone who wrote that. So they check it out. Yep. Just a kid at school like we thought. Moving on. What's the alternative, ignoring it? Secret Service does not work that way.

    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    The difference is that the SS would have had him beheaded or shot or hung, just to be safe...
