The Dallas FBI office is supposedly the nation’s lead on investigating SWATting, a hoax that can get people killed. We need to see some action.
I was writing when there was a knock at the door. A second knock came and it was very insistent. I went to the door and looked through the peep hole and there was nothing. I said something like, “hello?” and someone firmly said, “open the door!”I opened up to find two cops hugging the front of the house. They had M4’s as I recognized from video games (see?! They are good for something!) and they later confirmed. They were not pointed at my face like it had been with Patrick. They were pointed at the ground.(When I told my mother that, she said not to minimize it. No, obviously whoever it was doing their best to get me killed. Fortunately the police were not so easily tricked.)
I can’t quote them, but they said something to the effect that they got an emergency call. I actually said, “let me guess, someone claimed I shot my wife…?” One officer confirmed it, and I said, “this is a hoax.” I think I even said the word “swatting.”So someone had tried to make law enforcement falsely think I committed a crime.
I mean again. Let’s not forget the last time someone tried to do that. And again, we know who the culprit was that time: Brett Kimberlin. In that case, he was not trying to provoke an armed response, but instead was trying to put me away up to ten years for an assault I didn’t commit. …
