anyone else find it even more concerning in light of things like this?
"A Facebook post earned a seventh grader an interrogation by the Secret Service.
The 13-year-old's mother, Timi Robertson, said agents questioned her son at his school last week, and said she is outraged it happened without her permission.
"My phone rings and I look at it. It was the number to his school and I answered it and it's the school security guard just giving me an FYI, you know, 'For your information, just to give you a heads up, the Secret Service is here with the Tacoma Police Department and they have Vito and they're talking to him,'" she said.
Turns out, after Osama bin Laden was killed, Vito LaPinta posted an update to his Facebook status that got the fed's attention.
"I was saying how Osama is dead and for Obama to be careful because there might be suicide bombers," Vito said."
Whole story is at the link. Anyone else find this concerning?Answer Question
Death of common sense. Maybe that's why the TSA goes to the prom to get their 'feel' on.

Don't threaten the president. It's taken seriously everytime.
Taken seriously? By coming to the school and talking to the kid without the parent present? I would think if the SS was serious, they would enter the child's home with a warrant to seize his computer... Coming to the school to question a 13 year old seems more like a PR stunt to "make a statement" and less like a serious concern...

I guess taken seriously now means taken out of context.
