The #BrettKimberlin Report D+17 Part II: 85 House Republicans Send Holder Letter On SWATting

11 June 2012 @ 10:32

From The Washington Times, Kerry Picket reporting, we learn [tip of the fedora to Memeorandum]:

Congresswoman Sandy Adams, Florida Republican, is sending a letter, currently signed by 85 House Republicans, to Attorney General Eric Holder urging him to assign Justice Department officials to investigate the recent threat of “SWAT-tings.”

“My concern is someone is going to get hurt,” Rep. Adams told me on Friday. “It’s very dangerous for the people living in the home that didn’t call 911, because have no awareness whatsoever that something like that had happened. So they open the door to law enforcement whether it’s with or without guns drawn,” said Congresswoman Adams

“It’s a danger to the law enforcement agency that is being sent there, and it’s also a danger to the people in the community, because you’re pulling people away from what could be a real emergency.”

Do take the time to read the rest of her report here and the contents of the letter.

    Not one Democrat on that list. Disappointing but not surprising. Go ahead donkeys, keep on pretending this isn’t happening. When these unhinged scum turn this tactic on you, there won’t be anyone left to defend your free speech.
