There is a proper name for swatting, a hoax used to force police into SWAT by falsely reporting serious violence to police. U.S. Republican House congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) was swatting for two days in a row . Greene is a controversial figure who is a supporter of the right-wing conspiracy theory Anonymous Q. At 1 a.m. on August 24, five officers went to Greene’s home after being alerted of possible gun violence. They knew Greene’s identity and did not use anything like kicking the door, but just a friendly knock on the door. Greene responded and checked the room to make sure there was no threat. On August 24th she had another swatting attempt. A second whistleblower claimed a man named Wayne Greene tried to kill his family and then committed suicide.
