Julia Wilson, Upset By The War In Iraq.

Upset by the war in Iraq, Julia Wilson vented her frustrations with President Bush last spring on her MySpace.com page.
She posted a picture of the president, scrawled "Kill Bush" across the top and drew a dagger stabbing his outstretched hand. She replaced the page last spring after learning in her eighth-grade history class that such threats are a federal offense.
Too late.
Federal authorities had found the page and placed her on their checklist. They finally reached her this week in her molecular biology class.
The 14-year-old freshman at Sacramento's McClatchy High School was taken out of class Wednesday and questioned for about 15 minutes by two Secret Service agents.
"I think they did completely overreact. I'm just a kid. I don't think I'm much of a threat," Wilson said.
The incident has upset her parents, who said the agents should have included them when they questioned their daughter.
"It was an interrogation," said Kirstie Wilson, the teen's mother.
On Friday, the teenager said the agents' questioning over her page on the popular teenage Internet gathering spot led her to tears.
"I wasn't dangerous. I mean, look at what's (stenciled) on my backpack -- it's a heart. I'm a very peace-loving person," said Wilson, an honor student who describes herself as politically passionate. "I'm against the war in Iraq. I'm not going to kill the president."

Can you believe this? Wouldn’t a simple phone call to the parents been enough? Who do you Secret Service agents think you are, Nazi SS agents? I know you have to kiss your boss’s (Bush) Anus, but give me a brake, a 14 year old girl and all you need to do is look at her parent’s and her background! Were do you think your at, the Middle East? You’re in America! 14 year old girls in America, with a background like hers don't kill people! You made her cry! You… This goes to show me that Sen. Russ Feingold is right about wiretapping. Some jobs should be on the line but I know all you will get is a stupid donkey grin and a pat on the backside from your boss Bush. Wait till 2006; I pray we can find someone to clean up the crap in Washington! So far we have Republican gangsters, spineless Democrats, a House and Senate selling this country to the highest bidder (K street, business as usual) and now, Secret Service agents who are like Nazi SS agents and American couch potatoes. Sen. Russ Feingold, were are you? I don’t condone the picture, but, go get them girl.
