My Local Police Department Doesn’t Know What SWATting Is
Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/05/28
I called my local police department’s non-emergency line today. I talked to 3 different people, none of whom had ever heard of the term SWATting, and none of whom had ever heard of Brett Kimberlin. My local police department is responsible for protecting over 100,000 people from criminals. And they were totally unaware.
Now, I’m very much a micro-blog, so Kimberlin and crew are far less likely to try to SWAT me. But I am actively republishing articles written by two attorneys — one of them an assistant District Attorney in Los Angeles County — who are being actively intimidated and harassed, one of whom (the ADA) had been SWATted, so that does increase my risk factor somewhat.
But I let the local Law Enforcement know in advance, just in case.
After having written this brief article, Aaron Walker, the Virginia Attorney who blogs by the name of Aaron Worthing, got SWATted.
