50,000+ raids per year.  VICE reports… this is a problem:

In recent years, a small amount of hackers and gamers have been anonymously reporting fake hostage situations, shootings, and other violent crimes designed to send elite police units, like SWAT teams, to unsuspecting people at their residences.

Kids are crazy nowadays.  The first time I heard the term swatting I though I was being trolled, but once I looked further into it I found out it was actually real.

Really nice of them to show kids which apps, and cards they can buy to pull this type of “prank” off.

Mona-Lisa-ACU-military-womenHoly a lot of money is dumped into those “just in case” SWAT teams that aren’t even in big cities.

2:39 – WHOA, that BEAR vehicle is awesome.  For $400,000 I hope so.

I wonder how much more money it will take to get some of those Somerset County SWAT guys out of oldschool woodland camo and into some fancy new Scorpion, or Multicam?  Don’t get me wrong, woodland is my favorite but it’s not modern.

At the end of the video it mentions a 16 year old Canadian kid getting arrested for 30 counts of swatting.  There are 60 criminal charges pending, whoa…. I wonder how that will end.

Anyone ever been a victim of swatting, or know about a swatting story first hand?

Richard Ryan doing cool stuff with cellphones, hacking, and remote detonation:

Watch Dogs looks and sounds like an interesting game.

Hahah whoa the shockwaves off the horse explosion were epic.  What a great shot of the black smoke and all the debris too.

Behind the scenes:

Richard-Ryan-Keep-Calm-ENDORichard is wearing the 1911 Keep Calm And Carry One t-shirt in parts of the videos.

If Richard didn’t have a ton of permits and licences, he’d be on so many watch lists right now.   Now Richard is not exactly a 1337 Hax0r, but I would consider him a hacker.


According to a FOX news article today on security, hackers can aim a Bluetooth sniffing gun at you from long range and tap into your cellphone.

Full story – HERE

Yes, adding a stock to anything increases the stability of it, but If I saw someone pointing one of these things at me from a distance i’d be seeking cover not making assumptions and remarking “oh those crazy Bluetooth sniffers, up to their same old antics”

Photo evidence of why it looks like a good way to get shot by the police:
