As a gamer there is nothing more annoying than a snotty nosed sore loser.
If I get beaten fair and square i'll take the anger out on myself, not others. I haven't played many online games but this swatting is just some sore losers taking revenge for getting their asses kicked.
In one way these younger gamers are a lot like Trump, they cry foul and accuse everyone of cheating if they get gibbed, gibbed meaning 'exploded into a mess of gore' and whine whenever nothing goes their way.

What i expect from police: professionalism. This means that i expect them to not only act polite in the face of angry people shouting insults at them, but to not kill people by mistake.
And if they do, to freaking own it. The chief of wichita PD was more about shifting blame than admitting that something in the process is broke
As police converged on a house at 1033 W. McCormick, a caller pretending that he had killed his father and was holding others hostage was still on the phone with 911
6:28 p.m. (Police had previously reported 6:43 and 6:46, but made a correction Friday): An officer on the north side of the house shoots Andrew Finch with one round.6:41: The caller tells 911 he has a black handgun.
6:42: The caller says he is by his mother’s closet.
6:43: The caller says he has his mother and brother at gunpoint and won’t put the gun away.
6:44: The caller says he has poured gasoline all over the house and is thinking of lighting it.
Asked why Finch was shot on the porch while apparently not holding a phone while the hoax caller was talking to a 911 dispatcher, Wichita Police Chief Gordon Ramsay said Tuesday evening that was a difficult question to answer.
“Unfortunately we don’t have telepathy yet,” he added.
