Does the Secret Service Over react?

A 13-year-old boy in Washington state faced federal interrogation by a Secret Service agent over a Facebook posting that warned President Obama of suicide bombers, q13fox.com reports. Vito LaPinta of Tacoma, Wash., said he posted a message on Facebook after Osama bin Laden’s death, saying Obama should be careful of possible retaliatory acts against him by other terror members, according to the station. “I was saying how Osama was dead and for Obama to be careful because there could be suicide bombers,” the boy told the station. A week later, the boy said a man walked into Truman Middle School “with a suit and glasses and he said he was part of the Secret Service.” Questioning a 13 yer old kid without his mother even being notified? A petty lame effort on the part of the Feds on this one. The mother is fully justified to be upset, especially when the kid did nothing wrong.
