Via Bearing Arms.

I wrote about Tyler Barriss who was hired by gamers to place a false 911 call to Wichita PD that resulted in the death of a man unrelated to an online game feud. Initially charged with manslaughter, it seems prosecution went on and piled at least 51 charges to which Barriss has pleaded to and 20 years in prison.

He was a remorseless Mike Foxtrot this one. I am happy to see that he will more likely be somebody sperm receptacle in prison.

He can always dial 911 for help.

Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

  1. Two points come to mind.
    1. The charge should have been murder, not manslaughter.
    2. The PD needs to be investigated. It is unacceptable for them to accept without question a call claiming to be in town when in fact it’s coming from 4 states away. The whole reason why we’re paying for “Enhanced 911” is for the responders to know where the call is coming from — if they are not using that information they are negligent.

    1. Don’t leave out the phone companies! The same “feature” that lets spam callers give a fake number lets the SWATters fake their number.

  2. This is good news but what about the cop that killed an unarmed man because “he reached for his waistband.” When did this become an accepted reason to kill? If a non-cop shot someone because “he reached for his waistband” he would be in jail for a long time. Why are supposedly highly trained police officers consistently held to a lower standard then the general public when they shoot someone? If police weren’t so trigger happy swatting would be much less of an issue. Yes the swatter should go to jail, but so should the officer who shot an innocent unarmed man.

    1. Completely agree. Trigger-happy SWAT-cops make things much worse. In this case (IIRC) the cop was across the street, behind a car, using a scoped rifle. There was no need to fire. The cop should, at a minimum, never work in law enforcement again.

      Same with the cops who murdered that poor guy in a Vegas hotel because someone saw a pellet gun.
