Teen investigated for homework threat to Bush

The U.S. Secret Service on Thursday said it was investigating a Rhode Island student who wrote a rambling essay advocating violence against U.S. President George W. Bush and major U.S. corporations.

A homework assignment asked 7th-grade students at John F. Deering Middle School in West Warwick, Rhode Island, to describe their perfect day. The boy under investigation wrote it would involve unspecified violence against Bush, Coca-Cola Co. and Wal-Mart Stores Inc. executives, and TV talkshow host Oprah Winfrey, school officials said.
