Justin Hallman, a 16-year-old student from the United States has been visited by a couple of FBI agents after making a YouTube video for his American Government class about Congressman Ron Paul and the fact that the US is becoming a police state.
In the past few weeks, we’ve told you numerous times to be careful about what you write on social media websites, as it might be seen as a threat to the national security of the US. Here we have another example.
Although he received an A+ for his work, the FBI must have thought he deserved an F, so they paid him a visit. A couple of FBI agents questioned Hallman about his hobbies and interests and, reportedly, even attempted to convince him to infiltrate Anonymous and spy on hackers and protestors from the Occupy movement.
Other topics of interest, according to Prison Planet, were Ron Paul’s presidential campaign and the Illuminati. Why the Illuminati? Because he apparently had a conversation on the subject with his teacher, the one who most likely reported the teen to authorities.
“My record forever scarred with the truth that the FBI questioned me. When getting a job they will see that, when getting a passport they will see that, when going to college they will see that,” Hallman explained.
A few weeks ago, a former Marine was arrested because of some comments he made on Facebook. He was detained after authorities concluded that his posts were “terrorist in nature.”
A similar incident occurred at the middle of August when an Arizona State student and his wife were not allowed to board a plane because of his t-shirt.
Take a look at the video made by the youth and tell us what you think. Does it appear to be made by someone who poses a threat?
I think that the point is not what we could think about the video, i think that liberty of expression is above all things. Our entire civilization has grown of people's thoughts that nobody had before.
