An author of a recent RedState article wrote how he was a victim of a SWATing incident. SWATing is a heinous act where some delinquent anonymously calls the police to report a murder, or kidnapping, or the like at a home. They often claim to be a demented shooter. The police rush to house expecting to find an armed thug and dead victims.
What they find is an unsuspecting, innocent homeowner and his family, safe and sound. It is quite often very disruptive and shameful for the family and now it has gotten an innocent man killed.
