Conservative bloggers for some time have known about SWATing. SWATing is the favorite tactic of certain liberal extremists. They fake a 911 call to the police claiming a violent incident has occurred at a home and then the police show up with guns drawn.
It can be very dangerous.
From Fox News:
Conservative bloggers are on heightened alert following a string of so-called "SWAT-ing" incidents and are taking precautionary measures to ensure they don't fall victim to the potentially dangerous prank as the political blogosphere prepares for a heated election season.
"SWAT-ing" refers to a hoax in which an anonymous prankster falsely reports a violent crime at an unsuspecting person's home, prompting a police team to respond to the location believing a dangerous situation is at hand.
The illegal practice has in recent months targeted well-known conservative writers and commentators, including Erick Erickson, founder of the blog RedState.com -- who claims he was eating dinner with his family in May when a SWAT team surrounded his home following such a false 911 call.
The growing trend, which some say could one day prove deadly, had conservatives on edge at the annual RightOnline conference of right-wing bloggers and activists in Las Vegas this weekend.
"What they're clearly trying to do is dampen down free speech, but it goes beyond that -- it's putting people's physical safety in jeopardy," said Ali Akbar, who heads a group called the National Bloggers Club made up of conservative online writers.
Akbar told FoxNews.com that he believes he is a target after he claims his mother's home address in Texas was posted on various Internet sites to "incite someone crazy on the fringe left to do something absolutely awful to one of us for what we're talking about."
Finally, the media is talking about this.
It is a good thing too.
Perhaps the media pressure will finally force the Department of Justice to get involved. Former DOJ lawyer J. Christian Adams said that if Eric Holder gave the word for the Feds to get involved, SWATing could be shut down in 48 hours.
Holder nor Obama are going to voluntarily do anything.
They do not care if conservatives are threatened. They want conservatives silenced.
This is just another reason why Obama must be gone after this election. We need an Attorney General who will stop this type of activity.
As long as the Obama Regime is in power, conservative bloggers will remain in the crosshairs.
You are right Brother......We are the "Body of America" ! We Are The People that Signed The Declaration of Independence, formed The Articles of Confederation, Formed & Signed The United States of America "Constitution", formed the "Rule of Law", enforced The Rule of Law, worked and Built the infrastructure and Paid the Taxes to Sustain this "Constitutional Republic".
We are Not the Left or Right "Wings"....Our Only Agenda is "Reestablishing the Rule of Law rather than "The Rule of Man" and The USA Constitution as "The Only Standard by which We The People Shall follow" !
Eugene, I always look forward to your posts. You are absolutely correct about this. We are the center and there's nothing hateful or extreme about the rule of law or basic freedoms.
I will continue to avoid "red state" (CHINA and CUBA are Red states!) and make an effort to avoid Captialism, references to wings of parliament, and I'd even like to avoid "conservative"... conservative compared to what?? Encouraging homosexuality in kindergarteners, with federal grants?
OK, Eugene, let's vet our terms! What is your take on bad/ better/ best phrases?
Only if the system is "Enhanced" 911 (E911) will the address appear for the operator, otherwise, the caller must identify the address (verbally).
Doesn't Holder hold some office in this administration?
Eric gets a paycheck each month for being the Director, The Department of "Injustice".
This has been going on for some time now.
Typical liberals. They don't care who they hurt as long as they get what they want! What if someone is in REAL Danger? Now the cops are on a false call when there is a REAL Liberal Commiting a crime! Now someone is DEAD!! So like the liberals! They are just not right at all!! I am glad that we have ripped the Media to the point that they are finally calling some things OUT!! Maybe if we keep on them, we can get them to do the right thing all the time! I fear for the Conservative Bloggers, but here is what the useless liberals dont' understand about us Conservatives. We are not weak like the liberals are and the more nasty things that you do to us, the worse it will get for you. We are no longer going to back down. We were silenced in the past, and we ended up with Obama!!
Liberals are a joke. Use of law enforcment to scare Conservatives is an outrage. One of these days when some one is killed over this then the Unjustice deparment may look into it.
After someone or their family is harmed or suffers a fatality, the MSM will have to take notice; It only serves to fabricate a Conservative martyr. Stupid Liberals!
