Freedom of speech, they have heard of it
A British teen has been banned from entering the US for life after he sent an abusive email to US President Barack Obama.

Luke Angel, a 17-year-old of Bedfordshire was apparently irked by a broadcast about September 11, so he thought it would be a good idea to share his thoughts with the leader of the free world. Of course, it would have been an even better idea to sober up before writing anything, let alone an email to the US President.

Angel apparently bashed Obama and called him “a p….” which didn’t go down well with US authorities. The following day he was contacted by local police who told him he was banned from the US for life on the behest of the Orwellian Department of Homeland Security.

Angel did not seem overly concerned about the ban. "I don't really care. My parents aren't very happy about it,” he said.
