    Re: 13 year old interrogated by Secret Service.

    I think it's actually silly to suggest that *she* should have been there.

    What if *she* was a terrorist actually plotting something - her kid got wind of it - and he gave a hint? Having *her* present or even knowing would deter the truth - if there was any.
    Ths is the is how the situation really is - they knew NOTHING about this kid - they went in with the thouht that he might have actually heard about a plot of some type *from* someone - maybe.

    Now they've ruled that out, he knows nothing.

    Moving on.

    And the kid wasn't charged with anything or really even detained for more than, what, an hour? And he was in school anyway.

    Plus, how many times have we heard about a shooting where the teens or young adults that did it put something up on a social networking site or you-tube?
    This kid was probably just posting a comment that he thought sounded good, but who knows if the next comment from a teen on facebook is really a threat or not from an actual terrorist or a warning from someone who knows about a terrorist threat.

    This is the same procedure that reports of child abuse go through - a CPS/DHS employee questions children without the parent's knowledge or involvement - but is done so in tandem with school rules.

    Parents can be a problem, sometimes.
