Teenager, Julia Wilson, Questioned for Online George W. Bush Threats on her MySpace Account


Folks, if you think there is total and complete freedom of speech on the internet, you best think again. Responsible free speech, yes. Threats to the President of the United States, no. There are consequences to your actions, as 14 year old Julia Wilson learned.

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.

The teen then learned that search engines can be unforgiving. So can the reaction of the Secret Service when checking a threat made against a President. They are all taken seriously as one never knows.

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. (Access North GA)

      Hey I got it, if only Osama Bin Laden, wrote on myspace.com, actual resources spent will actually find him?

      Well, if Clinton would have given the “go ahead” to the military to take out Bin Laden instead of passing on the 10 chances he had when he was in office, we would not have a reason to still be looking for him now. Seems he didn’t have a problem giving Monica the “go ahead” at the time.

      I can only shake my head in disbelief….. There seems to be room for a tax reduction as the secret service’s budget is way too big…

      One thing I do have to say is unfortunately with the way some teenagers have been behaving.. Examples…columbine, the young man who killed the judges wife, the teens found with guns after school threats….we do have to follow “possible attempts” on the lives of others, whether its the president or not…the youth today is getting to the point where a threat might actually carry out…thats whats sad….She might be a lovely girl with just an opinion (which she is entitled to) but on the other hand….you always have to be sure with todays teens. I can see why they had to check it out.

      Evidently she was not brought up to show respect for the office of our Commander-in-chief. Whether or not you agree with the president, regardless of party affiliation, he(or she) is our leader in a representitive Democracy and there is a chance to vote out those that you disagree with in this country.

      This was a disrespectful and vulgar display and worthy of investigation. I see no problem with our security forces diong their job.

      By the by, she DID have her “freedom of speech” and we also have the right to question that display as part of our freedom as well. Victoria(comment 5) makes a valid point

      It’s become rediculously popular to bash the President, thanks to Hollywood and the opposing party. Now it’s gotten to the point where Hollywood has made a movie depicting his assasination. Personnaly I think it’s sick, and I can’t even comprehend it. What exactly do they want from him? He is dealing with the aftermath of a brutal attack on America and the promise of more to come. It doesn’t help matters when our own people lack unity. As far as Hollywood they live in a huge fantasy world of money, parties and major narcisim. They are too big an influence on our children.

      How many of us out there do not like our boss? How many hate our supervisor at work?? But we have to show respect to them whether or not we agree with their decisions. We might not want war, or troops dying…but we have to support them while they are there, and respect our commander in chief….not one president there ever was didnt make “unpopular” decisions….but as a country we need to RESPECT the choice, wrong or right and be one….when elections come, that is your time to speak your opinion….Teens who breed hate and messages of murder, are not expressing an opinion…if you do not believe in killing and war then speak of peace, not killing our president.

      I am pretty surprised that Julia Roberts is getting all politcal! I read she is supporting raising taxes on oil. That’s gotta be a pretty unpopular opinion these days.

      Just a couple of thoughts on the thread so far:

      1) Osama post comments on MySpace??? Are you kidding – the guy has posted full lenght videos and we don’t have a clue of where he is.

      2) I think it’s disgraceful for her to protest in that manner, but on the othert hand, this administration has so pathetically and arrogantly led/dictated the destructive path of the US, that I can fully understand her behavior.

      I’m a 43yr. old conservative Christian man (not an extreme right winger), and I have been opposed to the Iraq war since before it was started. Since I don’t believe in abstaining from voting, I intend to vote 100% Democrat – not to reward the Dem’s, which are no real bargain, but rather to punish the GOP and hopefully get our politics back to the center where they belong. We as a nation are rapidly becoming the very thing we despise – EXTREMIST.

      i’am glad to see that the secret service is on top of this heinous crime!!LOL killing him is a little over the top,but we can all throw rotten tomatoos at him!!wait!there’s somebody at my door!!(jeez there fast!)

      Here’s the funny part:
      Numerous officials like Perle, Ledeen, Wolfowitz, Rumsfeld, etc. can say that random AMERICAN people NEED to be hit with a massive bloodbath and death and terror, so they can start their war — some said this BEFORE SEPT 11 — and that is perfectly OK. Kill 3000 Americans + 4000 troops, no prob.

      Two Fox News guys say “WE NEED A NEW 9-11?, ho-hum, no prob.

      Wanting 1,000,000 citizens killed, no biggie. Chill.

      But an 8th grader with a webpage – fucking crisis.
