Facebook Pollster Being Investigated By Secret Service For Asking If Obama Should Be Killed

The secret service will be investigating a man that posted a poll on Facebook asking if you think Obama should be killed.  The poll was evidently poster over the weekend but Facebook has since taken the poll down.

In case you weren’t aware, it is illegal to post death threats about the president or plan any sort of assassination attempt. Any threats made against any U.S. president are investigated by the secret service.

It seems there’s a fine line between freedom of speech and speaking about harm you might like to do against the leader of the western hemisphere.

The possible responses to the poll were yes, maybe, if he cuts my health care, and no.

Where do you think the line should be drawn on free speech?
