+ - 14-year-old interrogated by Secret Service

Submitted by
Red Weasel
Red Weasel writes "Wired News Reports "A 14-year-old pacifist is pulled out of class and interrogated by Secret Service agents in Sacramento after she vents her anger at Bush's Iraq policies on her MySpace page" From the Article "Upset by the war in Iraq, Julia Wilson vented her frustrations with President Bush last spring on her web page on MySpace.com. She posted a picture of the president, scrawled "Kill Bush" across the top and drew a dagger stabbing his outstretched hand. She later replaced her page on the social-networking site after learning in her eighth-grade history class that such threats are a federal offense. It was too late."
