‘Red flag laws’ just legitimize ‘swatting’

Recommended Posts

Perhaps you've heard of the "prank" known as "swatting." Perhaps you're even aware of the "swatting" incident that turned deadly. It took place in Wichita, KS back in December of 2017.

In a nutshell, a "prankster" in California made a call to the 9-1-1 operator in Wichita, claiming he was being held hostage at a Wichita home, and that a murder had already occurred there. The caller thought the address he gave was that of an online gamer with whom he was involved in a feud, but that person had tricked him into giving police the address of Andrew Finch, who was not involved in the feud and was at home minding his own business.
