#3 The guy who made the call needs to be charged with capital murder. He can be found. The Cop should also be charged with murder.

#4 It is not a new thing anymore but this is the case to watch if there was one.

With public eye disclosure, we may protect Civilians and LEO from this increasing problem.

We will have to put the word out to hackerz as well.

There is no way you can hide anymore.

And Krebs is awesome.

#8 From Silentbrick's link (and pic of the pencil necked asshole):
A 25-year-old man believed to be behind a swatting incident that led to a fatal police shooting in Wichita, Kansas, has been arrested in Los Angeles, officials say. He has been identified as Tyler Raj Barriss, who is known online as "SWAuTistic."

Barriss, 25, was arrested in South Los Angeles on Friday afternoon. He was taken into custody on a fugitive warrant, according to NBC News, but details about the charges he is currently facing were not immediately available.

Barriss, who has a history of swatting, was arrested in October 2015 and charged with making two bomb threats to ABC7 (KABC-TV). The first one happened on September 30, 2015, when the channel's studios in Glendale, California, were evacuated and searched by police.

The incident in Wichita began at about 6:15 p.m. on Thursday when police received a call stating that someone had killed his father by shooting him in the head. The caller further claimed that the shooter was now holding his mother, brother and sister hostage.

#16 Some out of state loser phones in an anonymous tip. With no other information whatsoever, local police break into a man's home and shoot him dead.

Doesn't this suggest something about the state of policing in this country?

#17 "Doesn't this suggest something about the state of policing in this country?"
There are plenty of recent examples.
Scared guy with a gun lacking training.
Training is the real issue when all is said and done.

#18 Since the guy is in California, and the victim is in Kansas, This is an interstate crime, and as such is a federal crime. There is a death penalty for capital murder.

The guy claimed since he did not pull the trigger, he's not responsible. What he is not aware of is that he used the SWAT as an weapon and as such he is fully responsible for the outcome.

As for the officer who did the actual shooting, he was most likely nervous (i.e. "the fog of war) and misunderstood the man moving his hands from his back as "drawing a weapon" and fired his gun without seeing an actual weapon. I would say that he violated the ROE. If he didn't (no such rule in place), then the entire SWAT team need to be disbanded until they received proper training.

At any rate, this was apparently a poorly trained SWAT team and should have never been dispatched.

This is an example of a 'Cluster F***'.
