Hair Trigger Police State: Gamer SWATTED While Streaming Live Online By Matt Agorist
Online gamer “Kootra” was well into his first person shooter roll with friends when he began hearing disturbing sounds coming from inside the building.
“Uh oh, this isn’t good, they’re clearing rooms. What in the world? I think we’re getting swatted.” Kootra aka Jordan Mathewson said just prior to several heavily armed SWAT agents busting down his door and throwing him to the ground.
The raid took place at the home/business location of Mathewson’s game related business, The Creatures LLC.
Around the 6:49 mark in the video, we can see the men barge in and Mathewson throws his hands in the air. He’s quickly thrown to the ground and receives a knee to the back and is cuffed.
An officer asks “What about this is funny to you?”
“What? I’m not doing anything that is funny,” he responds.
Eventually, the officers stand Mathewson up and he is searched again before being seated in a chair.
As the officers search his phone without consent, and interrogate the young man, Mathewson reveals to them that all of this is going out live online. One cop quickly moves in to make sure they are not held accountable any longer, and he disables the camera.
Officers were apparently searching the office buildings at West Mineral Avenue and Broadway in Greenwood Village, CO, after a report of an active shooter. However they found no evidence of a shooting. They now suspect this was a false report and are searching for the person who used a landline phone to call in the hoax.
In recent years, a small amount of hackers and gamers have been anonymously reporting fake hostage situations, shootings, and other violent crimes designed to send military-esque police units, like SWAT teams, to unsuspecting people at their residences.
With SWAT teams and paramilitary gear becoming the norm across small town America, these calls have predictably chaotic results.
They are essentially using these overzealous, militarized, hair trigger SWAT teams, itching to go on a raid, as their pawns in a sick game.
Apparently making a phone call, or sending out a single officer to knock and ask questions are not options.
Brute show of force first, maybe ask questions later. Luckily no one was killed.
A twitter account for @ScrewPain apparently claimed responsibility for the raid.
@ScrewPain allegedly pulled the gamer’s personal information from comcast and then made the call to SWAT.
