Trinidad girl makes Internet threat against PM

BusinessWeek: "Police in Trinidad and Tobago are investigating a 14-year-old girl for making threatening comments about the Caribbean country's prime minister in an Internet video.

Police Commissioner Dwayne Gibbs says the girl's remarks on YouTube are being looked into.

In the video, the girl makes racial slurs against Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar (KAM-la per-SAD BIH-sess-ur). And she says a sniper should "leave no evidence" in shooting the leader during the government's offensive to dismantle gangs."
