Marjorie Taylor Greenes home targeted in another swatting incident police say

Date:

First she hated the FBI and wanted to defund them. Now she praises Law Enforcement for their responses after her claimed swatting. So, as the Twitterati have been saying, which is it MTG? Are ye for Law Enforcement or against them?

Story below:

The home of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) was involved in another “swatting” incident Thursday morning, the second one in as many days, according to police.

Why it matters: “Swatting” is the act of placing a fake emergency call to 911 operators, who often dispatch armed SWAT teams to what they think is a violent situation. Swatting attacks are used as a prank or form of harassment and have led to fatal consequences.

The latest: The Rome Police Department told Axios that it responded to a “swatting call” at Greene’s residence at 2:53 a.m. Thursday.

  • The call was from an internet chat about a male who was possibly planning to shoot his family members and himself at Greene’s home.

Details: “This call was received on what appeared to be a suicide crisis line from an internet chat,” Rome police told Axios.

  • The caller said a male who “came out as transgender” had “claimed they shot the family.”
  • The police said the call was a “second false report.”

Greene confirmed in a tweet Thursday morning she was “swatted again last night.” She did not tweet any further details about the second incident.

  • Greene’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Catch up quick: Greene and the Rome Police Department had said Wednesday she was swatted just after 1 a.m. that morning.

  • The police department said in a Facebook post later that day that “officers responded to a 911 call [with] reference to a subject being shot multiple times at an address within the city limits.”
  • “When officers responded they discovered this was the home of Marjorie Taylor Greene. She assured the officers there was no issue and the call was determined to be a false call commonly known as ‘swatting’,” the department added.
  • In a tweet Wednesday, Greene said she couldn’t “express enough gratitude” to the local police department.

The big picture: The department said it “received a second call from the suspect, who was using a computer generated voice.” The caller said they were “upset about Mrs. Greene’s political view[s] on transgender youth rights.”
