"Swatting" is a news item recently, in New York City. Seems a teen was playing a game on-line with someone, he won.. the other person lost. And then called the NYC 911 number (via Skype!) about someone being shot, and a hostage situation! CBS-NY news item:
Resulted in a massive police arrival, SWAT teams, and local panic. The FBI is now involved in finding the perpetrator! That "sore looser" will likely be found, and spend many years in jail. And be banned from any on-line games.
