Swatting Suspect Arrested, Could Get 5 Years In Prison

Good.

The same day Twitch streamer Joshua Peters posted up an emotional YouTube video directed at the culprit who sent SWAT teams to his home, police made an arrest.

It's 19-year-old Brandon Wilson, also known as "Famed God" in various online communities. Suspected of calling in dangerous hoax calls across the country, Wilson was arrested in Las Vegas on Thursday. He's also accused of making a bogus call to Chicago police that resulted in a house raid. Prosecutors say there's evidence on Wilson's computers that he may be responsible for more than a few swatting incidents. He faces up to five years in prison if convicted.

Dude looks like a loser, anyway. Just get him out of the way.

For some reason 5 years doesn't seem like enough. I don't know why. Anyways, good!

What a deusch. He's going where he deserves to go. I just don't understand why people do these things - just take them out of the gene pool.
