Gamer gets "swatted" live streaming Counter Strike match

The Lounge is for non-sport-related topics other than politics, war and religion. Order up your favorite beverage, kick back and enjoy the conversation! RATING: PG-13
  • Gamer was playing Counter Strike and streaming it live over the internet. Someone he was playing against (or who was watching the stream) decided to "swat" him and called the police and pretended to be a coworker who had just shot people and barricaded himself in the office, oh and he also told the cops he would kill any of them who came in after him.

    Yup, that would suck if you had turrets syndrome and made a sudden jerking motion or if you had your headphones on and didn't hear the swat team come in behind you and you suddenly jumped up in joy to celebrate something in the game... :twisted:

    Feel free to contact me if you need legal assistance. I have a great lawyer that helped me with an ex who violated my privacy and kept harassing me on MySpace and Facebook. He's very good. And there is legal precedent. - linuxpro

    I'm not sure I'd wish CinnamonGirl on people. But it is pretty despicable.
