  1. Hrmph. two years (possibly less considering time already served) for a habitual offender who continued reprehensible acts while he was cooperating with the feds. Doesn’t sound to me as though the FBI is “committed to tracking down swatters like Islam” or “takes ‘swatting’ and ‘doxing’ attacks very seriously” at all.
    Am I missing something? If a standardized punishment doesn’t appreciably prevent a specific crime’s occurrence, then said punishment may be a touch too lenient.

    The FBI has nothing to do with the sentencing.

  3. Fair point, but you get mine.
    (all “government-intelligence-is-an-oxymoron” remarks aside) the inter-and-intra-agency cooperation needs to be in full swing with this.
    If the sentence is two years “minus whatever we already owe ya bro,” swatting should be a far more serious offense, and I can’t fathom anyone believing otherwise. If we haven’t a law on the books that addresses this with enough specificity we have an issue.
    Chris Correa “hacked” a rival sports team–largely inconsequential to anyone not on the Astros’ or Cardinals’ staff–and got double what this guy received for having endangered numerous lives.

  4. The FBI might track down people like him, but their prosecuting powers were castrated by the sheepherder in office.
    Swatting is attempted murder and should not be treated as anything else.

  5. precisely. And again one of your comments gets downvoted 🙁
    SWAT teams are routinely called to unfamiliar locations, in situations requiring them to use deadly force. They know they may not go home tonight and have willingly accepted that task as part of their daily duty. They feel surprisingly human emotions like anxiety and fear–and are therefore always ready to fire their weapons.
    If you think swatting is a casual affair…try and imagine a team surprising you at your own home. While cooking. While working out. While taking a shower. Feeling relaxed yet?
    Then flip sides and envision being part of the team, wondering how much of a fight the target will present. If the freaked out person inside doesn’t calm down…are they safe?
