This swatting thing

Is crazy dumb and dangerous. When someone gets shot in the head because they're freaking out and don't know what's going on will it be funny then? Phone Post 3.0

And false police reports are illegal in the U.S. too. In California, you can be liable for the full cost of the response. Deploying swat teams isn't free &(in many places) comes from tax payers

Dumb and dangerous and it's mostly teenage boys doing it. Pretty sure that is not a coincidence. It's amazing any of us survive adolescence.

Couldn't have said it any better.

Vypor of vyporsquad was doing something similar using a voice modulator to sound like a little kid hiding in his room during a home invasion.

Someone got on his site and posted a video of him doing it (above) along with his contact info and his dad's business address. Phone Post 3.0

Wow so, a 15 y/o was convicted yesterday on domestic terrorism charges and faces 25 yrs to life for 'swatting' .Apparently he called in the swat team on a livestreamer that he lost too. The livestreamers dad was shot and critically injured during the raid.

"Defense lawyers told the courtroom that Horner, who goes by the gamertag BadAssDwg69, was upset after being repeatedly beaten by a fellow gamer at Battlefield 4. After obtaining the rival gamers information, prosecutors say Horner called police and reported a murder/hostage situation at the home. SWAT team then raided the house, shooting and critically injuring the “Livestreamer’s” father in the process. Following an investigation of the incident, Horner was charged as an adult, using provisions of the 2001 Patriot Act. Horner’s guilty charge stems from two counts of domestic terrorism, related to his manipulation of an enforcement response, and injuries to innocents resulting from those actions"

Damn 25 years. Punishment seems harsh for a 15 year old but at the same time people need to take this shit seriously and stop. If the kid got a slap on the wrist short juve stint it would be less likely to get the other kids attention. Phone Post 3.0
