A 22-year-old California woman could face criminal charges after she used a racially-charged word to refer to President Obama on Facebook, and indicated that she hopes he is assassinated. She says she doesn't think she did anything wrong.

Denise Helms' status read:

“Another 4 years of this [N-word]. Maybe he will get assassinated this term.”

The update went viral almost immediately, and Helms' employer, Cold Stone Creamery fired her. She told a California newspaper that she wouldn't care if the president met his demise.

"I didn't think it would be that big of a deal. … The assassination part is kind of harsh. I'm not saying like I would go do that or anything like that, by any means, but if it was to happen, I don't think I'd care one bit."

The Secret Service is looking into the matter, and is treating the incident as a threat.
What do you think? Should Helms' comment be interpreted as a threat? Did she deserve to be fired?
