WATCH: SWAT Team Raids Gamer While He’s Live Streaming

At a time when police are becoming increasingly scrutinized for their militarization and excessive use of force, you think they’d be more careful.

Kootra, an employee at The Creature which live-streams video games on twitch.tv, found out this wasn’t the case.

Fortunately, he had his camera rolling.

Kootra became a victim of a cybercrime called “swatting”, which according to Urban Dictionary:

A goal achieved by hacking where the hacker tricks 911 systems into deploying SWAT to an unsuspecting victim’s home under false pretenses.
A new cybercrime called “swatting” is capable of putting people in danger from SWAT in there own homes by strangers thousands of miles away.

Usually hackers “swat” someone to disrupt their game, and are able to do so anonymously because they hide behind alternate IP addresses.

Kootra was privy to the fact that he might have been swatted, so he just sat and waited with his webcam recording while a SWAT team busted in on Creature headquarters.

As you can see, the SWAT team immediately break all protocol.

As one YouTuber pointed out:

By going through his cell phone the cop actually broke the law as it is illegal to search a suspect’s cell phone without a warrant. You can sue for breach of constitutional rights.

No word on what happened to Kootra after the SWAT team turned off his camera.

Look at this yellow bellied wimp…he loves playing games with guns and being some kind of macho man but he was all yes sir please don’t hurt me sir to these goons with guns. Now me, first off I’d tell them to stop shouting like a bunch of drunken hooligans, then I’d explain the situation and have them on their way. Of course if they tried it on with me I’d chin them so hard they wouldn’t believe.

Oh, sure you would kiddo. Sure you would. Have fun getting shot.

Dude shut up I’m pretty sure that if a goddamn swat team came into your place of business you would not “chin them so hard they wouldn’t believe” no I think you would be rational and attempt to cooperate so you don’t go to jail

Oh sure man, go ahead and FISTFIGHT A FREAKING SWAT TEAM! Or better, try to disarm them!
can humanity get more retarded than you?

Sounds like he swatted himself, or had someone do it, because why would you go to such lengths to record it when you probably could have called the cops and defused it, since he knew they were coming.

They have all their Web cameras on during a LIVE stream. Hence the LIVE stream part. It was a sick fan or crazy asshole who wanted to play a joke on The Creatures.

Yeah, someone on twitter is claiming responsibility for it like a idiot, as if the police don’t monitor that shit. They probably around know who it is they just have to get enough evidence together to prosecute.
