Now this is something to look forward to

A number of conservative bloggers allege they have been targeted through the use of harassment tactics such as SWAT-ting (fooling 911 operators into sending emergency teams to their homes), in retaliation for posts they have written, and now Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., has stepped into the matter. He has sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder urging him to investigate the SWAT-ting cases to see if federal laws have been violated...


ABC News spoke with two prominent conservative bloggers who were victims of SWAT-ting, a hoax tactic used by some hackers to infiltrate a victim’s phone system, often through voice over IP (VOIP) technology to make calls appear as if they are coming from a residence. The perpetrators call police to report a violent crime at that home to which the police respond, sometimes with SWAT teams.

They can get them on "Use of interstate communications to commit a crime" or what ever legalese they use. All it takes is their provider bouncing the call out of state.

One of the instigators of this is a little cocksucker named Brett Kimberlin. A real Liberal douchebag, he lives here in Maryland and the police know he does it yet they can't get the evidence to throw the book at the little son of a bitch. Google his name...you'll se what ya get. He's been a Liberal instigator since he got outta prison and one of his benefactors is that worthless cunt Barbara Streisand.
