David Hogg Family Home SWATted
An anonymous -- and fraudulent -- hostage-situation emergency call to the Broward County Sheriff's Office resulted in a Coral Springs Fire rescue team racing to the family home of Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg.
A local TV station reported that "Hogg was not home at the time of the incident and is currently in Washington, DC with his mother to accept the RFK Human Rights award."
SWATting is the dangerous "prank" of calling in fake crime reports in order to get heavily armed police to show up at the victim's house. The resulting situation is potentially deadly.
The condemnation for today's SWATting attempt on Hogg and his family has been swift and universal -- and that's just the condemnation coming from the Right.
Political disagreements shouldn't lead to so-called pranks where the victim and other innocent bystanders can wind up injured or dead.
