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.
This is a breaking news update. Look to Breitbart News for further developments.

FORMER DOJ ATTORNEY: ERIC HOLDER COULD STOP SWATINGS 'IN 48 HOURS'
Former Department of Justice attorney J. Christian Adams took to Twitter in the wake of the SWATing of Red State's Erik Erickson and declared:
Eric Holder or an ethical USAttorney could stop this swatting in 48 hours. Violates 18 USC 241. Online efforts should be directed at #DOJ.
If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same;As Adams points out, these SWATings are an attempt to silence the First Amendment rights of bloggers. He asks in his tweet to Dana Loesch from Breitbart News; "Where is #ericholder?"
The three bloggers that have been SWATed so far are all self-identified conservatives. That may answer the question of where Mr. Holder is.Good men sleep peaceably in their beds at night because
rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

This could have very easily ended in a tragedy, if the police had been a little less professional, or Erickson had reacted with anything other than calm. People could have died as a result of this false report. Finding the libtards responsible will take some effort, as they probably used disposable cells, but these guys have to be found and stopped. If Holder doesn't throw the FBI at this, then he deserves to be impeached.--Odysseus

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:

It's really irresponsible, at the least.
How would they feel if the right did this to them? Especially the DUmmies, since a good number of them would end up serving time for drug charges if the police raided their homes based on an anonymous tip. Then, they'd be up in arms about jack-booted government officials ruining their lives.
I don't think finding them will be that difficult. They are probably bragging about it somewhere online as I post this.

They don't care. Intimidate in order to silence. These people hide behind a veil of democracy when in fact it's the last thing they want. They want a dictatorship as oppressive as Chavez or Castro's regimes.Deplorably Proud To Be An American
