    It's all fun and games until some innocent gamer gets shot by the police because of this stupidity. :/

    Not to mention you are tying up the time of all those cops..... etc.... and there could be a "REAL" emergency ..... and someone could have died because they didn't get they help they needed when they needed it because the cops were all out staking out a house that was totally not a problem.

    Meanwhile across town someone needed the cops to stop some major real violence and they weren't available.... because of some stupid hoax and someone got killed.


    This is all well and good while no one is hurt or in real danger...... But what happens when the cops are tied up doing this crap and something like a bank robbery or school shooting or something happens ..... Or even a major accident or something.... Wait till it's one of their parents, friends or whatever that dies because the cops were busy playing swat in a hoax.

    This is one of those things where the person who called in the false report should be found and fined.... massively.


    This is rather like stupid people using 911 to do things like ***** about poor service at the local McDonalds. Yes it does happen. Or idiots who call for the ambulance just because they don't have a car and have a headache and want to come to the ER. Meanwhile someone could be dying and the ambulance is tied up with someone who really doesn't need to go to the ER.

    Anyway that's my 2 cents.

    ...

    SWATting is a real thing and has been done to a number of people I have read about. It's VERY dangerous because you have the SWAT Team who does not know more than the info they've been given (usually that there is someone armed and dangerous), and the victim is put into a confusing and possibly deadly situation.

    People who do this stunt need to be found out and spend a LONG time behind bars and/or pay a HEFTY fine.

    For those who thought it was funny, please do some reading up on SWATting.

    While I did chuckle at the thought of the raging, my next two thoughts were of the cost to the tax payers and how we've reached a point in society where kids find this acceptable and funny. They have no accountability, even if charges are filed it will come down on the parents. Not that the parents are innocent either, but in the end they'd be the one footing the legal costs, fines, etc. for everything their child has done. Accountability is what's missing.

    I've always thought there should be some sort of legal way to give a kid a delayed fine, that way the parents don't have to be the ones to pay, for example the kid gets fined $1,000 but it is delayed until they get their 1st job, where it is then taken out of their paychecks until payed off fully.

    kid should never be able to have internet access again, and be made to pick up trash for community service til he is an adult. when he does get a job out of each pay check 100.00 is taken out til he pays off what the tax payers put out for his foolish rage.
