Oh boy, this will get some results. I know AG Holder will immediately assign a crack team of investigators to get to the bottom of this.

Chambliss Demands Inquiry Into Attacks Against Conservative Commentators
Sends letter to Attorney General Eric Holder about recent “SWAT-ting” incidents
WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder regarding recent reports that several conservative political commentators have been targeted with harassing and frightening actions. Chambliss demanded that Holder examine these cases to determine if federal laws have been violated.
These dangerous hoaxes, also known as “SWAT-ting,” occur when a perpetrator contacts local police to report a violent incident at a target’s home. These callers are believed to utilize voice-over IP (VOIP) and other less-traditional telecommunications methods to make the call appear to come from the target residence and to hide the caller’s true identity.
