What’s up, ladies and gentlemen of YouTube Boogie2988 coming to you live once again through the power of the Internet and today I want to talk to you about the act of swatting a YouTuber or what the hell is that?
Yeah, no I’m just making a video. Okay!
All kidding aside swatting is a very dangerous thing and it’s very serious and its happening more and more on the internet everyday. So if you’re unfamiliar with the practice its pretty simple actually, the very first thing you have to do is get the victims personal information, you want to have their phone number and you want to have their home address and then you simply use that information against them.
Once the hacker has that information it’s just a simple matter of spoofing your phone number and calling the police and reporting a crime perhaps a murder is taking place perhaps your home is are drug den, anything that will get your local police to show up and pay you a visit.
Now most of the time the police will respond relatively normally sending one or two units out to your home they’ll knock on the door, they’ll ask who is home. They may want to come inside to make sure everything is okay, and it’s a slight nuisance to the person involved. But some of the departments across the nation have been receiving a lot of new gear some people would call it even being militarized they are getting full combat gear AK-47’s, stun grenades, tasers all kinds of great stuff – hell – some of the departments have even received tanks and when these guys respond they really respond if you look at all the difference swats that have happened sometimes these guy show up with five or 10 units with AK-47s they’re throwing people to the ground they’re trying to keep everybody safe including themselves but they’re definitely showing up with a full force to be reckon with.
And what’s really frustrating about all of this is it used to be you’re really rear occurrence now its happening more and more often its seems just like every couple of weeks we will see about a brand new swatting episode making the front page of the internet news.
And this is in some sort of childish prank like making a prank phone call or knocking on your door and running. This is the kind of thing that gets people killed when you have cops breaking down the front door of law abiding citizens, you have no idea that is happening there is a real chance of they may arm themselves and fire at the cops, the cops may fire back its only a matter of time to one of these swatting episodes turns into a bloodbath.
Not only that but its complete waste of tax payer money, it’s a complete waste of the police’s time when they can be out actually protecting and serving people – you know – when you do this kind of thing you’re not a cute internet troll you’re not some awesome hacker you’re just being a complete and total socially irresponsible basement dwelling neck bearded asshole. And you may want to consider who that insult is coming from from by the way because I’m a basement dwelling neck beard who is made a career out of screwing with people on the internet okay.
You have to ask yourself what would make a person decide they want to do this kind of thing, sometimes they’re only doing it for the negative attention because they crave it sometimes they just like to hurt people sometimes they’re just bored and they doing it for the LOL’s but overall you got to agree the kind of person that would do this kind of thing is not a great person.
And you know, it’s kind of easy to get mad at the cops when this kind of thing happens because number one they shouldn’t probably respond that strongly and its truly there is a lot bad apples in the United States right now who are making a really bad examples of the cops around us and I guess you have to admit that you’re in the United States especially, cops have a little far reach then they probably should have.
And personally I’m actually really grateful that when the cops get a phone call that claims that a violent murder is taking place they respond effectively and quickly and with full force to try to save some lives even when it does turn out to be some pranksters idea of a phony phone call.

In fact when this kind of thing happens you can’t really blame the live streamer you certainly can’t blame the cops, all you can blame is the psycho path of just it’s a great idea to endanger people’s life for the LOL’s.
So until police departments across the country become educated on this practice and find a way to find false positives and prevent this kind of thing from happening the responsibility falls down on me and you. If you’re a public figure on the internet or want to become one, be very careful with your phone number, be very careful with your home address, be very careful about shareing that information and its my advice to never share it all if your docs do crop do your best to fight it use a identity protection service just do everything you can to prevent these guys from having it easy leg up – hell, I’ve even called my police department, let them know that this could potentially happen to me and ask them to give a call first that’s how careful I am and I think it’s a good idea you consider doing it too.

And I know what you’re thinking Boogie making a video like this is only going to draw more attention to you and its going to make you an even bigger target for swatting no pun intended, but the reality of it is I’ve taken my measures to be safe and they decide to overcome those I have no problem with the police force here in Fayetteville Arkansas every time I’ve ever had to interact with them they’ve been in fantastic even when they’ve given me a ticket and I think that they showed up with my front door if they decided to break down the doors and handcuffed me when they found out that everything is safe I’m pretty sure they’d stay for a nice cool refreshing drink. And I just want to say my condolence to everyone who’s been swatted including the most recent victim a live streamer Kootra, if you want to see the video of him getting swatted live you can look at it down below a link to the Reddit thread as well as the video while you are there, drop like on video, but just remember you’ve got to be safe there is some really crazy people out there and they will do just about anything to fuck with you, bullying unfortunately doesn’t stop when you exit high school I’ll talk to you soon, love you.
