SWAT prank calls in the news
« on: August 02, 2012, 10:56:14 AM »
Miley Cyrus's home surrounded by police after prank home invasion call - LAPD received a phone call that made them believe they needed to rush to her house. They got a 911 call that said shots were fired and that there was a home invasion at her house. They showed up with their guns drawn of course, but found nothing going on at all.

How much you wanna bet that the same people who were doing all the Xbox SWAT calls also did this one.  I think this is going to be their new thing.  SWATTING celebrities will make the news and it's super easy for anyone to get giant lists of celebrities home addresses.  I predict lots more of these.

the xbox stuff is pretty crazy too. i guess this is the first high profile swatting thats happened, huh? with swatting there is a lot of things that have to happen i think, i dont want to speak about it publicly to keep from putting any info out there about it. certainly going way too far with things.

Ashton Kutcher's home targeted for 'swatting' prank

Ashton Kutcher is the latest famous name to be associated with a "swatting" a malicious prank in which a seemingly serious distress call to police turns out to be a false alarm with a spoofed phone number, aimed at luring a SWAT team to swarm a particular location.

Police hurried to Kutcher's Lake Hollywood home late Wednesday morning after a woman called police more on that "call" later and claimed to be hiding in a closet because there was an armed man inside the home, L.A. Now reported. The actor was not home at the time.


There's video of the SWAT team ordering a guy on the ground on this one.  I knew this would be their new thing.  Oddly enough, no Xbox SWATting has happened since the Miley Cyrus thing.  Wonder which celeb is next.

Hey look, Justin Bieber got swatted! A 911 call came in last night ... the caller claiming someone was waving a gun right next to Justin's L.A. home.  Police sent the cavalry ... cars, helicopters, the works.  Sources tell us ... Justin's security let the cops in, and they did a sweep of the house but found nothing.  We're also told cops did a similar sweep of 2 other homes on the block.

Simon Cowell gets SWATTED  The female caller claimed Simon was bound and gagged in the bathroom of his Beverly Hills estate. We're told cops responded in force but found nothing.  Simon was at home at the time. It's the latest in a string of swatting incidents.

Still no new Xbox user SWATs in the news since all the celebs started.

Wonder if the female caller was actually a deaf relay operator.

You'd think they'd be good at it since most kitchens have phones in them.

Some kid arrested for the celeb swatting pranks.

"Los Angeles police believe they've caught the person who made a fake emergency call claiming that several people had been shot at Ashton Kutcher's Hollywood home.

A Southern California juvenile, who was not identified, is suspected of being behind the October 3 "swatting" incident at Kutcher's home and targeting Justin Bieber's Calabasas, Caifornia, home a week later, according to a police statement."

If you guys are looking to get into any of this SWATTING type of stuff, it's actually fairly easy to find/do.

For practically no risk, you can (For 20$ worth of Bitcoins, of course) call the SWAT team on anyone in the United States. There's a website on the Deep Web advertising the guy's services (I doubt it's the same person as the news posts in this thread) and you can order them anonymously haha. There's even a YouTube video someone recorded when they SWATTED their neighbor's house.

It seems pretty funny, but I would never do it because of the risk of getting caught. Also, I feel that I could come up with a funnier prank that would land me a lot less jail time than calling the SWAT team to someone's house.

Tom Cruise is the latest SWAT victim.

The article says that the kid arrested last month was 12-years-old.  I doubt it's him, though, if the pranks are still happening.

Fake 911 call targets Kim Kardashian's LA home

Nothing exciting or original in the article.  Just another one.

http://www.examiner.com/article/swatting-is-stirring-up-the-nation-from-celebs-to-legislators

Many states are proposing legislation to stop the swatting. On Wednesday California state Senator Ted Lieu (D-Torrance) proposed new legislation to make it easier to prosecute offenders and to increase penalties for making false calls to emergency personnel as well as making the offender responsible for all costs resulting from the false call.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff, Lee Baca, requested the bill as a result of the recent onslaught of swatting pranks. This bill would change the current sentencing of just probation or only up to a year in jail to a mandatory sentence of a minimum 120 days of jail time.


Sounds great, except for the part where they have no idea who's doing these SWAT pranks.
