If someone gets hurt or killed, the swatter will go to prison for a very long time. Rep. Taylor Greene will attempt to pass legislation to make it easier to arrest these lunatics. What is hard to understand is why legislation is needed.
Rep. Greene was swatted for the 8th time on Christmas Day.
Swatting refers to a large-scale response by law enforcement officials in response to false claims of an emergency, often at the homes of public officials.
“Both my daughter’s houses just got swatted today. Big thanks to the police who responded! We appreciate you and support you!” Greene wrote Thursday afternoon in a post on X.
“Whoever is doing this, you are going to get caught, and it won’t be funny to you anymore,” Greene added before tagging the FBI account.
These swatters could end up getting someone killed.
Tyler Barriss, a 26-year-old California man who admitted making a phony emergency call to police in late 2017 that led to the shooting death of an innocent Kansas resident, has been sentenced to 20 years in federal prison.
OTHERS ARE BEING SWATTED
The swatting could be coordinated attacks.
