  1. Let’s make it a FELONY and let mommy & daddy shell out 10 grand for an attorney for little Johnny. 5K fine too plus court costs!

    Maybe I’m missing something, what is the purpose or end result? Break a few doors & windows? Hitting the wrong house? Can anyone tell me what is the point of SWATing?
