Default Banned For Life From The US

http://www.foxnews.com/world/2010/09...-e-mail-obama/

Quote:
A British teenager who sent an e-mail to the White House calling President Obama a "pr*ck" was banned from the U.S. for life, The Sun reported Monday.

The FBI asked local cops to tell college student Luke Angel, 17, that his drunken insult was "unacceptable."

Angel claims he fired off a single e-mail criticizing the U.S. government after seeing a television program about the 9/11 attacks.

He said, "I don't remember exactly what I wrote as I was drunk. But I think I called Barack Obama a pr*ck. It was silly -- the sort of thing you do when you're a teenager and have had a few."

Angel, of Bedford, in central England, said it was "a bit extreme" for the FBI to act.

"The police came and took my picture and told me I was banned from America forever. I don't really care but my parents aren't very happy," he said.

A Bedford Police spokesman confirmed they had spoken to Angel about the e-mail. Officers will take no criminal action.

Joanne Ferreira, of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, said there are about 60 reasons a person can be barred from visiting America.

She said, "We are prohibited from discussing specific cases."

If I had his email I would call him things a lot worse than a prick

What happened to freedom of speech? Sound like a good law suit to me, I would contact the ACLU asap!

The other point to consider is that if he is so vocal as a non-US resident/citizen that he would go out of his way to contact the president, he could be considered a high risk once he gets here.

Had a friend email president Clinton an obscene message back in High school. Him and his parents got a nice meeting with the FBI. He was put on some list of people to be kept an eye on whenever the secret service was in town with our illustrious elected officials.

calling him a "prick" is the hear say of a drunken 17 year old. I imagine he said much, much worse.

The paragraph conveniently left out by Fox news:

Quote:
A Beds Police spokesman said: "The individual sent an email to the White House full of abusive and threatening language. We were informed by the Metropolitan Police and went to see him. He said, 'Oh dear, it was me'."
