14yo Claims Death Threat Not Serious

With the news seeming to devote more and more time to crime perpetuated by teenagers and parents demanding that “something be done” the point of this story baffles me.

Teen Questioned on MySpace Bush Threat

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.

On Friday, the teenager said the agents’ questioning led her to tears.

She committed a federal offense. Yes, she’s a teenager and no she did not have the capability to carry out the act, but shouldn’t there be some repercussions for the act?

She cried? Good.
