Gamer Kootra got "swatted"

Postby Yao » August 29th, 2014, 3:41 am



An internet prank on Wednesday this week ended with the storming of an office building in Littleton, Colorado by heavily-armed SWAT police while computer gamers watched the raid unfold live on the internet.

Swatting is an internet prank/crime where someone finds your address either through your IP or because your name and location is known. Then they call 911 anonymously and report a fake emergency. Ex, someone can call and say that someone at that address is being held at a gun point or someone is going to commit suicide and a SWAT team would be dispatched to the address

Imagine if he was playing on speakers: ''Terrorists win'' or ''Bomb has been planted'', scary as heo..

“The caller claimed to have shot two co-workers, held others hostage, and threatened to shoot them. He stated that if the officers entered he would shoot them as well," the statement read in part.


Stupid prank, could have gotten someone hurt..

Oh wow.
Always remember: Never accept the world as it appears to be.
Dare to see it, for what it could be.
