Secret Service Interrogates 7th Grader

Do you know what your kids are posting on Facebook?  You might want to play close attention or they could end up being visited at school by the Secret Service.
After Osama bin Laden was killed, 13-year-old Vito LaPinta posted an update to his Facebook status that got the Feds attention.

"I was saying how Osama was dead and for Obama to be careful because there could be suicide bombers," says LaPinta.

A week later, while Vito was in his fourth period class, he was called in to the principal's office.

"A man walked in with a suit and glasses and he said he was part of the Secret Service," LaPinta said. "He told me it was because of a post I made that indicated I was a threat toward the President."

Vito now plans to be a bit more careful with what he posts.
