Swatting in the US
Swatting is a dangerous and illegal practice where someone makes a false report to the police, often claiming that there is a hostage situation or an armed potential mass shooter, in order to get a SWAT team to descend on a targeted person’s location.
Unfortunately, this practice has become increasingly common among Twitch streamers in the US, with many high-profile cases in recent years.
In 2017, a Wichita police officer shot and killed a man after a fake tip led to a swatting incident.
In 2022, Twitch streamer Keffals was swatted four times in one week, causing her and other streamers to speak out about the trauma and danger of these incidents.
In the same year, a Twitch streamer’s grandparents were swatted, causing a large police response and putting the elderly couple in danger.
Many streamers have been swatted while streaming live, including Dellor and Summit.
Swatting is a serious crime that can put innocent people in danger and waste valuable police resources.
The FBI estimates that there are 400 cases of swatting annually.
While laws around swatting are inconsistent and difficult to enforce, some police departments have started making note of specific residences after bogus claims, so as to be wary of future suspicious calls linked to a particular address.
Twitch has also been working to mitigate swatting in other ways, such as through an off-service policy that allows them to take action against users who have been found to engage in swatting.
