(TheRedWire.com) – Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., during an appearance on “Jesse Watters Prime,” pushed that authorities needed to investigate “swatters,” which refers to those who make false emergency service calls to a specific location or someone’s house. Greene has stated that having been “swatted” for the eighth time, the experience was “terrifying.”
On Tuesday night, she revealed that there was a video from her home where you could see that she had to open the door in the middle of the night, as the SWAT team had shown up with guns in their hands. Greene argued that they had been informed that she had allegedly murdered someone and was ready to commit suicide. Furthermore, the police officers had been warned that she was willing to shoot them if they tried to enter her home.
Swatting is illegal, and the practice is usually used as a means of targeting either specific locations or individuals. A caller is going to report that there was a false incident, which often includes claims about a bomb being placed in the location or a home killing. As a result, emergency dispatchers will often send armed officers to respond to the victim. This practice has also become more common as information from different people can become more easily accessible through social media.
Greene argued that this was very serious and that she had not been the only person in her family to be targeted. As she shared, her daughters were also swatted over the Christmas period.
