I dunno what they'll charge him with, but I hope it results in a long prison stint.

What a shitbag.

He should be dragged out of his house by SWAT and shot in the forehead. His malicious, intentional actions resulted in the death of an innocent person.

While what he did is stupid beyond all reason.. I’m not sure you can blame him solely for the actions of an officer?

If we are preaching self accountability then it’s across the board.

first of all, I'd call the guy's prank call more than stupid myself and hope he's going to be charged appropriately. I'd question the action of said swat team officer too. some may need to get their eyes examined maybe? If I lost a relative who was totally innocent, I'd want some answers too.
Wichita Deputy Police Chief Troy Livingston said Finch was shot after he raised his hands quickly and appeared to point a weapon at officers. I thought, swat team
members are way better trained than regular popos!

Is no-one surprised that there is a name for what he did, how often does this happen?

I read an article a few days ago that said there were about 400 documented incidents in 2016.

It's difficult to accept people are that stupid.

The term swatting has been around for 4-5yrs at least, however the act of swatting was originally reserved for celebrities like Clint Eastwood, Justin Bieber, Tom Cruise, Taylor Swift and others.

Sad situation the caller initiated. He needs to pay dearly with prison time and any internet/social media access forever denied if he regains freedom.

Can't outright blame the Swat LE as it's a dangerous job and without being in their shoes, no way of telling specifics that led to tragedy. But training to prevent another incident has to be maintained and reviewed.
