UPDATE: No Charges Against Facebook Obama Assassination Pollster

The Associated Press reports that the Secret Service has closed its probe into the Facebook survey posted Sept. 26 regarding whether President Barack Obama should be assassinated (See "TUOL" 9/29/09) after determining that neither the minor poster nor his parents posed a threat to the President's safety.

No criminal charges will be sought against the parents or the juvenile George Gallup wannabe. Anyone considering uttering the bromide: "Out of the mouths of innocent babes..." should pause to re-read "Lord of the Flies."

  1. It's very likely that the child is merely repeating things he heard his parents say. So, I agree with the Secret Service, leave the boy alone - but force him to watch his parents being executed. At worst, he'll turn into Batman.
