Secret Service IDs kid for Facebook 'assassination poll' -- no charges - The Oval: Tracking the Obama presidency

Secret Service IDs kid for Facebook
posted assassination poll -- no charges - The Oval: Tracking the Obama presidency
I watched this one with special interest. In my first book in 1997, A Parents Guide to the Internet, I shared a story about students in NJ who posed as another student and sent a death threat to the President and about the Secret Service showing up. I called that "Men in Black." Kids do these things, but even twelve years ago, couldn't get away with it. Wha were they thinking?
