Last October, I received a SWATting threat which I immediately shared with appropriate law enforcement agencies. The threat purported to be from The Lonely Conservative, but, of course, it was not.
I now have proof of who sent the threat. It turns out that the sender is in a jurisdiction with a misuse of electronic communications statute that covers the threat. The year of jail time for this offense is pocket change compared with the time for some of the other charges this person could be facing. The statute of limitations is two years, so I have quite a while to decide whether or not to press charges.
I’m not in a hurry. Let’s see how things play out for a while.
