Teen questioned for Bush threats

(AP) - 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.

Federal authorities had found the page and placed Wilson on their checklist. They finally reached her this week in her molecular biology class.

The 14-year-old freshman was taken out of class Wednesday and questioned for about 15 minutes by two Secret Service agents. The incident has upset her parents, who said the agents should have included them when they questioned their daughter.
Emphasis mine above, naturally.

Geesh, doesn't this sound like an amazingly handy idea? You want to meet the teenage girl with the dreamy MySpace page. She won't tell you her real name or the name of her school or what parts of her are or are not shaven. [query: are there actually girls on MySpace like that? I think I have to call "bs" on this one, I've gotten every home address and phone number I've ever asked for... -ed] What's a guy to do? Easy. Sic the feds on her!

This is not the only MySpace "bad picture" story today either. A Texas police officer whose MySpace page includes photos of dismembered women has been suspended. If only he'd threatened to dismember a living person for their political views, then maybe he could have gotten off with a lesser charge!

Bonus quip: Er, how about. "The Texas officer said it wasn't his fault, the images were part of a photo-sharing program with members of Edmonton Police Services"
