    Watch Gamer Kootra Get SWATted in Hoax That Shut Down Schools

    The word of the day is "SWATting" or "SWATted". According to the Urban Dictionary, it's "A goal achieved by hacking where the hacker tricks 911 systems into deploying SWAT to an unsuspecting victim's home under false pretenses." Some bleeps think it very cool to call the SWAT team on a player who is playing a game such as a first person shooter counterterrorism game. Typically, if you are calling out SWAT, you got a dangerous situation. Gamers are, for the most part, mostly harmless.

    This was in the news some time last year.

    When someone gets killed -- mo' then likely, I hope they charge the prankster with 2nd degree murder.

    If it is a teenager that caused this, then not only should the kid be held responsible, but also the parents as well.
