OK this could get real bad, real fast. I may be a little slow but this is the first I heard about "swatting". It's a terrible hoax. People can use the internet to fake a call to 911 and when they do they can make it look like the call is coming from YOUR house.

Now think. Most of us carry while we're at home. What happens when SWAT breaks through the door?
What happens if you hear something in the middle of the night and see a flash of light in your yard? This is where it's important to get on your phone and call 911 yourself.
When this story was aired on Fox News this morning they had a guest expert who actually explained how this is done. So now there can be more copycats.
