Secret Service agent interrogates teen over Facebook update 

Tacoma, Wash., seventh-grader Vito LaPinta was interrogated at his school by a Secret Service agent, allegedly without his mother’s knowledge or permission. LaPinta, 13, posted a Facebook update that apparently made the feds suspect he threatened the president. “I was saying how Osama was dead and for Obama to be careful because there could be suicide bombers,” LaPinta explained. His mother rushed to the school and the agent left, saying the boy was not in any trouble.
