That's a good point, Bama, I hadn't thought about that aspect...

Without knowing exactly what he wrote or exactly how he was questioned, I'm thinking this wasn't too big of a deal. If they just asked him what he meant, deemed him a non-threat and sent him on his way then it doesn't bother me. If they intimidated him with threats of jail or whatever, then it was going too far. Really need more info to form an opinion on this.

Pretty sure the minimum age for a facebook account is 14. Anyone under 14 with an account lied to create it.

I thought that they were suppose to have Parental consent,a Parent or attorney present to speak to a minor. However nowadays I think the Government agents do what ever they want most times!

Minimum age for a Facebook Account is 13.

I'm kind of on the fence about the questioning. At first I thought I didn't really have a problem with it, because it was just a few questions, a warning not to do it again, etc.

But what if he HADN'T given them the right answers--what if he freaked out and started saying stuff that DIDN'T sound like what they wanted to hear? What I'm wondering is, with whatever authority they had to question him without parental knowledge or consent, how far could they have taken it?
