I saw this on my Facebook the other day. Now I don't know anything about "my rights" and stuff when it comes to law enforcement, (Mainly because I follow laws), but I would have been fine with them dragging her off kicking and screaming.

Apparently the woman had made a comment on social media about Trump in a manner that brought attention to the Secret Service. Well, they show up at the woman's house and wanted to ask her some questions. She wouldn't have it, and wanted her attorney present. They gave her the number to call, and they left.

I'm glad they are doing this. I don't feel like she posed a threat, but given what she said, there are some nutcases in the world that would take her up on this.
I was never a fan of Obama, and i've probably said some bad things about him, but there was a line there that I never crossed. Especially on Social Media for all to see. I just don't get idiotic people.

I've seen this video going around on Social Media where people are praising the person who made the threats and cheering on such behavior, while hating on the Secret Service Agents for doing their job.

Disheartening to see how brainwashed and hateful so many "resisters" have become. Yet they will speak as if they are from a place of moral high ground, all while wishing death and destruction on someone because of their political ideologies.

From what I could hear, she was hoping someone would put a bullet into the president and end the problem . How would anyone not expect a visit ,if they said that ? I thought she was a smart ass and should be followed up on .

The secret service paid a visit to a man while Obama was in office because he was painting toilet seats with Obamas face on them. So if they do that then they surely should visit people who are more deserving of a visit.

She’s lucky it wasn’t the police.

Pew pew.

She is an idiot for making a statement about shooting the President.

However, I love the way she handled it, except for her occasional tone of voice and voice volume getting close to yelling.

She asked pertinent questions and she didn't let him get away with NOT answering her pertinent questions. She was absolutely right to ask if she was under arrest and to then have a lawyer present, and she was absolutely smart to get the secret service guy's telephone number and name and badge number, which he didn't want to give. I love how she responded to the name and birthdate wuestions with "you already know my
name since that's who you asked for and if you're here you know my date of birth" etc.

Again- she is an idiot to say what she said online. We do have the right to free speech (supposedly (though in practice it's being taken from us but by bit while we all just accept it as long as the "other side" is the one getting censored), but with that comes consequences when we say things that can be perceived as a threat, so maybe she will think about that next time she is tempted to ask someone to shoot the Pres.

But unfortunately, we can no longer trust federal law enforcement type agencies, as we've seen with all of the corruption that's been glossed over at the very top (FBI, DOJ, wtch). So I wouldn't feel comfortable answering any of their questions without support either.

Good for her, for not just bowing down.

They should have just shot her dumb ass. One less idiot in the world.

You can disagree and disrespect someone without wishing harm upon them.

I disagreed with a decent amount of Obama's politics, but I respected him as a person. I thought the people make lynching jokes were vile.

I disagree and disrespect Trump. It doesn't mean I wish physical harm upon him.

Good for the Secret Service. They should be following up on perceived threats.

You cant threaten to kill the POTUS. We have all known that our whole lives. You cant say it on the phone you cant say it on the internet.

How stupid are these people?

When I get to Trump he'll be drawn and quartered,and after that i'll take a-haha! not American, enjoy your first amendment.

There is a right to free speech which means there is a right to reply, and that's through diplomacy. You call me ugly-go ahead, that's your view, but through the first I could say 'well you aren't exactly a f'in oil painting either' that's how freedom of speech works.

Was this woman an actual threat? I dunno. I wanted to kill Rian Johnson after The Last Jedi but that was me just venting my anger, when does anger and disappointment transform into a police squad storming your home?

There are idiots on both sides. Ted Nugent got a visit from the Secret Service after he said.


“If Barack Obama becomes the next president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”

Making threats is not ok. If you want change go vote and get others to go vote.

Kathy Griffin has received SS visits (several I believe) over her mentally-deranged "artwork" showing stuff like Trump's severed head.

It is not OK to make threats. The fact that you are posting it online under an anonymous internet handle doesn't somehow make it OK.

Tom Arnold got a visit too.

Your rights are the law. If they don't have a warrant you can tell them to have a nice day and shut the door.

I would have had a little fun with them, though.

"Sorry, I'm a little busy right now. If you give me your home address I'll swing by when I have time for a chat."

They knocked on the door. A far cry from "storming" her residence. She has the right to say what she said as evident since she was not arrested for it. It's a routine investigation to follow up on a direct threat made against an individual who in this particular case was the POTUS. I would say that in this day and age, its wise to at least contact anyone making threats against any member of society.

Whether you live in the US or not, make a threat against any public figure, be it an actor or actress, or a politician, I would say you should expect a visit from law enforcement. Do you believe you can say something about a school and shooting and not expect LEO contact? You can, but you better be prepared for the visit that's coming. And I would hope that you would support a knock and talk as free speech comes with responsibility. Doesn't mean one should go to jail but one should be investigated, if for nothing else to determine that one isn't a threat to themselves, as cray cray is cray cray, and and anyone encouraging violence against another is simply crazy.

The Media keeps drumming up the hate Trump chant, sooner or later one of the threats will be real.

Freedom of speech does not mean you can say anything anywhere any time you want. You can't make threats against the POTUS. You can't yell "Fire" in a crowded movie theater. You can't joke about bombs in your luggage at the airport. This woman is lucky. If the SS agent was as big a jerk as she was he could have arrested her and held her for up to 72 hours while investigating her for conspiracy to commit a felony. If he couldn't find enough evidence to file charges he would let her go. But make no mistake about it, he could have taken her in to custody on suspicion of conspiracy.
