This tactic has previously been used on conservative blogger Patrick Frey aka Patterico, a California Deputy District Attorney, and Mike Stack, a New Jersey private citizen, both of whom were targeted by the left following the sex scandal which forced Anthony Weiner to resign from Congress.
Patterico's SWATer told 911 dispatchers that he (posing as the blogger) had shot his own wife, and police greeted him with drawn weapons, handcuffing him and waking his wife to frisk her as a police helicopter flew over their home.
Erickson's tale is far less dramatic than Patterico's, and he explains, "I had already, last week, advised the Sheriff’s Department to be on the look out for something like this." This latest SWATing occurred the same weekend as a coordinated blogging campaign to highlight convicted bomber Brett Kimberlin.
