Josh Peters, streamer of RuneScape, was the unfortunate target of swatting earlier this month. He has since posted a response to his YouTube channel, and is equal parts saddening and enraging. For those who have managed to avoid the term, swatting is the act of calling a police department to have them send an armed response team to someone's house. SWAT teams can break down doors, are armed to the teeth, and are not trained to be especially hospitable, to put it as mildly as physically possible. It is reprehensible, it is scarring and dangerous for those targeted—as well as their families, and, though under different names depending on where you live, it is entirely illegal. Peter's rightful distress stemmed primarily from the danger the incident put his ten-year-old brother in, with ten armed officers threatening him as soon as he had opened the front door.
