"Swatting is the tricking of any emergency service (via such as a 9-1-1 dispatcher) into dispatching an emergency response based on the false report of an on-going critical incident. Episodes range from large to small, from the deployment of bomb squads, SWAT units and other police units and the concurrent evacuations of schools and businesses." And now it happened to Twitch streamer Jordan "Kootra" Mathewson, during his stream. It could happen to you And before you laugh at the whole thing and/or dismiss it as a harmless prank (or worse yet laud it as an "epic" one), sending a bunch of twitchy (hah) armed men into someone's apartment under the impression that the person is an armed and dangerous maniac is fucking retarded. Somebody could have gotten killed, and one of these days someone will. Sauce. Don't taze me bro.
