So, was this 'standard procedure' - no violations or anything?

Also I don't think "SWAT seize video gamer live on cam" is more accurate

This should set a good example for those idiots who think this type of thing is funny.

 

It's not the person who "swatted" the livestreamer in the video above, but apparently in this case the police critically injured the streamers father during the event, all because this 15 year old was upset he was beaten and called a threat into the police. While only 15 years old, he got 25 years to life in prison for his "joke".

 

25 years for that. Totally ridiculous.

The whole conversation is hilarious. And apparently he was locked up for a week because they found cannabis on his desk or something like that.

 

Wrong guy. You're thinking of WhiteBoy7thst. This guy's nickname is Kootra.

After joining my 16 year old on a run I got to listen to just how serious these kids take these games,  its real to them.  There is a generation that is using the virtual world as if it is the real world and when things don't go they way they want it very real threats are made.

Someone is going to get hurt, whoever makes these kind of pranks needs to understand that.

 

 

You're assuming they'd care. I highly doubt they would.

 

This is another unsavoury part of the gaming community. The community seems largely juvenile.
