This case is all muffed up from the get go. Jackasses like this smug little twerp who phoned in the fake call put both the lives of the responding
officers and the homeowner in danger. I wouldn't be surprised if that was his goal all along, but this is the epitome of stupidity in America
People need to re-read the story about the boy who cried wolf. Swatting is going to eventually make officers complacent on and skeptical of most calls
like this, and that does absolutely nothing good for the general public.
While I do agree that the officers could probably have put in a little more due diligence in ascertaining that this was truly the person who make the
threat (like obtaining a search warrant, for one), neither the officers nor the homeowner are the problem in this case.
