Schoolgirl investigated for Bush 'threat'
Herald Sun ^ | 14 October 2006

Posted on 10/14/2006 3:36:02 AM PDT by Aussie Dasher

A SCHOOLGIRL was quizzed by Secret Service agents after posting anti-George W. Bush comments on a popular Internet chat room, a US newspaper has reported.

Julia Wilson, described as a freckle-nosed 14-year-old who wears braces and has a love heart on her school backpack, was yanked out of a biology class at her school in Sacramento, California to answer agents' questions.

The Sacramento Bee newspaper reported that she posted a cartoon photo collage of a knife stabbing President George W. Bush's hand beneath the words "Kill Bush" on MySpace, which is hugely popular amongst teens.

It was one of several images the teenager had used to decorate an anti-Bush page on the website – and prompted a visit to McClatchy High School by agents from the Secret Service and the Department of Homeland Security.

"I told them I just really don't agree with Bush's politics," the schoolgirl told the newspaper.

But what if the person investigated was a black trench-coat wearing pshcopath who converted to Islam? I wonder what spin the Sun might give then?

McClatchy High School? Named after the parent company of the Sacramento Bee, Mpls Star Tribune, and other great American bird cage liners? I hope she's a more serious-minded kid after this visit.

I wished they had asked her "Tell us exactly which policies and could you explain why you disagree with them?" I bet there would have been a lot of "uh's" and "um's" in her response.

"You'd think they could look at the situation and determine that she's not a credible threat."

It sounds like that is exactly what they were doing.

Wilson's father, Jim Moose, said security services had over-reacted. "I don't condone what she did, but it seems a little over the top to me," he said.

So, dad, if another little precious child in her class had posters with a knife going through your daughter's head, with the words "Kill Julia" on them, would you want that investigated? Sure you would.

Threats are threats, it doesn't matter if they are made by a 40 or 14 year old.

She certainly is a brat, but I know we harp on the press alot, but in this case I must believe that the press poisoned this little girl. I know the parents could have had something to do with this too. If the parents are not understanding of politics which truthfully many aren't and get their information from the press and begin to believe that Bush should be dead than the kids are going to pick up on this. It is human nature. The press really is sleasy in many ways. I try to be fair and balanced with the news, but after seriously trying for years, I just came to the conclusion that they are extremely biased against Republicans and conservatives. No matter how they say they aren't.....they are!!! Sorry for going on and on...

I told them I just really don't agree with Bush's politics. . .[said the] 'freckle-nosed-braces-on-her-teeth; love-heart on her pack-pak, fourteen year-old'. . .

Well thankfully, they did not include 'intelligent' in the profile here. . .

And they do not mention if she had a picture of Cindy Sheehan. . .or any CD's by the the Dixie Chicks in her back-pack.

No one can suggest that this is a valid exercise of state power. We must all condemn this action. This is far worse than the Foley scandal.

The "sort", along with ALL of her family, that needs to be put into internment camps. Internment Camps will one day be in vogue... AGAIN!

When asked, these brainless commie-bots stutter and say things like, "He's a pig man, I can't stand his smirk... my dad says that he is the terrorist... springsteen hates him... my mom says he wants to take away all of my rights as a woman... he ordered the Twin Towers blown up... and last but not least... he stole the election from algore."

I work with a guy and he is a total idiot. I even reported him to my big boss about what he said about President George W. Bush. It astounded me that he is still working where we work. To scare him, I told him on a Monday that I was surprised to see him at work after the comments that he made.

Call the Secret Service. They will take care of it... and your boss! Anyone that does not see that they did the RIGHT THING in investigating this little girl, is wrong! Hell her father may be a abbey hoffman type... but I see that PC has infected some Freepers and DU plants here.

Hmmm. Wouldn't that be profiling? Then, the next time, when they go after some hood wearing guy with a death wish, the media libs would scream "bias", because they treated the little 14 year old girl differently.

I was watching TV last weekend...perhaps the Discovery Channel...not sure. They were showing talented kids around the nation. One little kid danced and played Cajun music on his accordian. He was a delight to watch.

Then there was an 11 or 12 year old girl who wrote and sang a song while playing a guitar. One of the lines in her song was, "George Bush is an idiot." I was appalled!

Yea, I'm sure they yanked her by the hair and dragged her down the hall for quesioning!

Whatever the case, she got what she deserved.

MySpace is a "chat room" like Free Republic is a blog. Which is to say, in that way that isn't. At all.

Sweet tapdancing hopscotching love of all things good and holy. Can we get the occasional Internet correspondent who's actually used the damned thing?

Back when Clinton was in office, and Hillary was going to run for NY Senate, A boy in my high school sent a derogatory email to the white house about HILLARY.


The secret service came to our school to check him out. This is standard procedure, checking out possible threats.

I agree.

Wilson's father, Jim Moose, said security services had over-reacted. "I don't condone what she did, but it seems a little over the top to me," he said

I still can't get over the comment of the father.She is a minor and he is her parent and he should have used his parental authority.

My 13 year old never uses the computer without parental supervision and if she posts something that I find offensive (even if it is just a tiny bit offensive) I have her remove it and we have a conversation about it.

Having said that she would never even think about posting something remotely threatening about the President of the United States no matter how much she disagrees with him.

My daughter likes politics and would discuss her issues with peers rather then throwing out threats to her President.

That is what I told. I said that I was surprised the SS didn't take him in for saying what he said. He first started off saying that he hated people that liked Bush. That was the first straw and then it got worse. After he said the first thing, I went and told my boss because I didn't feel safe working with somebody that says that he hates me. I work with heavy equipment and if you can't depend on an individual that you are working with then there is no use in working with that person.

"No one can suggest that this is a valid exercise of state power. We must all condemn this action. This is far worse than the Foley scandal."

It's a perfect use of Federal authority. Physically threatening the President or calling for his harm is a Federal crime. "Kill Bush" is about as clear a call to harm as one can say. How would the Authorities know the kid was only 14 unless they investigated?

No, as my boss put it, he likes to split the ticket. I told my boss, that it doesn't matter how you vote; I don't care how you vote; what Ed said, my coworker said, is dangerous.

What a sad little girl to be so involved with politics at 14 years old. Kids are suppose to be having sleepovers talking about boys shopping at the mall going to the movies. Argh what have they done to her.

Excellent civics lesson for this little snot. And, I'm glad to hear that the Secret Service did their jobs, and interviewed this kid. I hope that they managed to impress on her just how wrong it is to do what she did.

I hope that the Secret Service had a few words of payer with the folks who run MySpace too...

If your child downloaded music you'd be held responsible and have to pay huge fines to the music industry. Too bad parents can't be held responsible when their kids threaten others online, I bet more parents wold do as you do then.

Liberal logic.


Notice how she is repeatedly referred to as a "schoolgirl". Usually it's "student" or "teenager" etc.

Well one never knows how your kid will turn out,but as a parent you have to try to instill good morals and values from an early age.
So far I think we have done right by our kids and they know right from wrong.I hope.:)

The 14 year old got herself added to the "threat list", and then her father's comment got him added.

Even if Ms. Hillary is 'lected President, those people will stay on the "threat list".

After a series of assassination attempts stretching back over a century and a half the Secret Service (and the politicians) are totally humorless about these threats.

Squeaky Fromm springs to mind in this case ~

It MUST be an election season. The second paragraph just screams for the Savageese editing.....

Julia Wiilsoon, described as a freckle-nosed four teeeen-year-old who wears braaces and has a love heart on her school backpack, was yanked out of a biology class at her school in Sacramento, California to answer agents' questions.

It is sad that this 14 year old threatened the President rather then debating the issues she has with his policies.

My 13 year old loves politics and she has had a love for it since she was 9 years old.

There is nothing wrong with a kid being involved with politics if they can discuss it without ill wishes toward a politician.

My daughter knows how to articulate her issues with a policy she disagrees with, without resorting to a threat toward the politician or President.

IMO,it is important that kids learn about politics and I am glad that both of my children have an interest in it,because it'll make them informed voters later on in life.

My son is voting for the first time this year and I know that he can way the issues here at the local level to make an informed decision when he goes to the voting booth in November.

This would have been best for the child, as it would give her the opportunity to apply some good old fashioned horse sense to her prejudiced views.

However, this falls under the classification of "attempting to reason with a liberal", which is not possible, and the SS is charged with protecting the president, not rendering libwhacks logical.

Well to many parents think it is okay to let the kids have a computer in their bedroom and there in lies the problem.

We have our computers in the living room and the kids never use it unsupervised,since my husband and I work different shifts.
