From Barry Sussman:

The feds did two things here that speak volumes. They opted to go to the school and create a scene instead of simply coming to the child’s home. This was likely for the consumption of other would-be dissenters.
Additionally, they questioned the child without a parent being present. This leaves one wondering how many agents it takes to sufficiently frighten a teenage girl.

Julia Wilson, 14, got a surprise visit from two Secret Service agents Wednesday at McClatchy High after the words “Kill Bush” appeared on Her mom, Kirstie Wilson, says she should have been present when her daughter was questioned. Sacramento Bee/Hector Amezcua

The latest Sacramento resident to be questioned by federal agents in possible threats against President Bush is a 14-year-old girl with a heart on her backpack and braces on her teeth, a freckle-nosed adolescent who is passionate about liberal politics and cute movie stars.

  • Good for the secret service. it cant hurt to scare the crap out of some high school kids. Pretty pathetic that they need to use resources on high school students but it seems every week there’s another incident at a school involving guns, bombs, etc and innocent people are dying. i’m glad i’m not in high school anymore.

  • Well, don’t make public statements about killing the president. I don’t care if it’s Bush, Clinton or Nader, for cryin’ out loud.
