This is outrageous on several levels

Secret Service interrogates Tacoma 7th grader reports on an incident in a public school that it outrageous on several levels:

1) The school just let the Secret Service interview the boy, without the mother's permission.

2) There was no warrant.

3) The Secret Service way over reacted.  The boy's post that Obama should be careful of suicide bombers could have just as easily been taken as advince.

4) Violation of the 1st and 4th ammendments.

I am so glad we homeschool, but I hadn't ever thought that it might provide my children some protection from being questioned by the Secret Service without Janine or I knowing about it.

Hat tip: My brother-in-law who writes:

Here in Indiana, we've recently had the state Supreme Court pretty much overrule the 4th amendment. Lovely times we're in!

Wow, that is also pretty outrageous.

We have got to push back when things like this happen. We need to elect politicians that understand and respect the Constitution.

I wonder how many states still observe the 4th ammendment?
