  • Perhaps the most draconian sentence in history.

    Stupid? Yes. Dangerous? No doubt. But this sentence for a 15 year old is a joke.

    I am fine with the sentence. He could have got innocent people killed. Swat deployments are no joke and are life and death situations.

    The sentence also shows others that this will not be taken lightly.

      I disagree. Maybe that 1 sentence will stop some of the BS they think is all fun.
      One guy already got shot during his prank call. What if the guy in the house had shot a couple of Swat team coming in ( which if someone kicks in my door will happen )before they shot him since it was reported he would shoot the police when they arrived.

      All over some 15 year old getting his feelings hurt cause he lost a game.Looks like a good message to me.

        What's his history? The article doesn't say. Maybe it is being kept secret because he is only 15. But to comment on the sentence, I think it would be necessary to see his entire rap sheet. If this is his first crime, then the sentence might be overturned on appeal because it is unusual?

          Unfortunately for this 15 year old, he learned the hard way. This is about one of the dumbest things I have ever heard anyone do. This kid got someone shot because he was tired of being beat in a video game. And he put the Officers in the line of danger. This is just a simple case of "Play Stupid Games, Win Stupid Prizes".

            Prosecutors in the case proved that Horner called in multiple false threats against rival online gamers, resulting in SWAT team raids of their residence.

              False EMERGENCY calls to the PoPo are dangerous for EVERYONE .

              I have no problem with the sentence.

              He'll be released in 5 yrs or so anyway


              Operative part of the article that really shows how dangerous it is:

              "Defense lawyers told the courtroom that Horner, who goes by the gamertag BadAssDwg69, was upset after being repeatedly beaten by a fellow gamer at Battlefield 4. After obtaining the rival gamers information, prosecutors say Horner called police and reported a murder/hostage situation at the home. SWAT team then raided the house, shooting and critically injuring the “Livestreamer’s” father in the process. "

              Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

                While Swatting really is a problem and absolutely unacceptable behavior, this article is apparently all a hoax. The picture posted in the article is of a murder case out of Buffalo, NY where a teen murdered a baby.

                    It is indeed a hoax. That being said, I fully support that exact sentence for this crime, and harsher sentences for other crimes.

                      While the sentence in this case is a hoax, the incident it is talking about did happen.

                        Yeah, I found that out shortly after I posted it. Last time I will ever take a friend's Facebook post a face value.

                          That's why I almost always check Snopes or HoaxSlayer.

                          Having said that, it takes a real D-bag to do that for real.
                          It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.

                              Without even reading the article, I had doubts. When someone can get probation for killing people while DUI cause he was too pampered by his parents, there's no way a 15 year old kid is going to get hit with a domestic terrorism rap like that.
