    I won't hold my breath waiting for action in response to the Senator's request during this election cycle.

    It doesn't matter who is responsible, this is illegal and should be investigated.

    Although I think the Senator is p*ssing in the wind if he thinks the DOJ will get involved. Maybe the local law inforcement folks will investigate and find the stooge(s) that is responsible.

    LAST DEFENDANT SENTENCED IN SWATTING CONSPIRACY

    DALLAS — Carlton Nalley, 35, was sentenced Friday afternoon by U.S. District Judge Barbara M.G. Lynn to 108 months (nine years) in federal prison following his guilty plea to offenses related to his involvement in a swatting conspiracy, announced U.S. Attorney James T. Jacks of the Northern District of Texas. Nalley’s two co-defendants, Matthew Weigman, 19 and Sean Paul Benton, 25, were sentenced in June 2009 to 135 months and 18 months, respectively.

    I see. When you said "so far", you meant "so far this election cycle". Silly me

    You're citing a case that was prosecuted and tried prior to the Obama catastrophe.

    That particular case you cited was investigated and prosecuted during the Bush years. Silly you.

    The question is whether or not Eric Holder and the rest of ObamaNation will put as much attention into the recent cases of SWATting [attempted murder] as they did, say, the Trayvon Martin non-issue.

    Yes and no. Nalley was arrested in
    May 2008, pled guilty on
    Jan. 27 2009 (according to a local newspaper; Feb. 2009 according to a DOJ press release), and was sentenced on
    Nov. 13 2009 (by federal judge who is a Clinton appointee).

    DOJ link posted earlier, link to local newspaper is here: In Dallas This Week, the World's Most Famous "Li'l Hacker" Phoned In a Guilty Plea - Dallas News - Unfair Park and here: The 19-Year-Old Blind "Little Hacker" Gets 135 Months in Federal Prison For "Swatting" - Dallas News - Unfair Park (which claims a Jun. 26 2009 sentencing date by the same judge).

    Using the typical right wing argument, Obama/Holder had sufficient time to let him walk. They did not.

    Ah. So Obama took office exactly one week before the case closed. If you're asking me to credit them for NOT throwing the case out, like they did with the Black Panther voter intimidation case, then fine. I'm glad they didn't intervene on that case during their first week in office. Thank you, ObamaNation, for allowing justice to be served. :applause

    My point (actually Mycroft's point, sorry for interrupting ya man) was, did Eric Holder and ObamaNation's DoJ go after the swatters/attempted murderers in the case you cited? No, they did not. Nor are they going after the current crop of attempted murderers. Because of COURSE they aren't. The targets are Conservatives, you see.

    Most of the progressive folks I've known don't particularly have a lot of affection towards the police. Pardon me if I'm projecting somewhat. Now imagine a bunch of those SWAT-team-trigger-happy-Palin-loving-bully/thugs racing to your house, locking and loading and humming the National Anthem. They're coming to your home because they think you're tripping on hallucinogenics, packing an AK semi-automatic assault weapon, and that you just murdered your wife.

    Does the prospect frighten you? I have a great deal of respect and trust for our law enforcement, and the prospect terrifies me.

    I think the practice of sending an armed SWAT team to someone's home because you disagree with their politics is about as reprehensible as political terrorism gets. REGARDLESS of the person targeted. The DoJ (and FBI) should be coming down on these terrorists like a ton of bricks, but they aren't. I doubt they will, either.

    They will shortly after January 20, 2013, though.

    Um, they were already in custody when Obama took office.

    Well, you don't know what they're doing. Your lack of information is proof of nothing (other than your lack of information). But you've got a good conspiracy theory going, and Sen. Chambliss put out a nice chest thumping press release which I'm sure will rile up his base (always in search of victimhood), so carry on

    How do you know that is why they are being harassed?
