Officer Who Criticized Trump as ‘Authoritarian’ Experiences Swatting Incident Hours Later

A police officer who nearly lost his life during the January 6 Capitol riot recently called former President Donald Trump “authoritarian.” Just hours after his public criticism, the officer’s mother became the target of a dangerous “swatting” incident.

The officer, who has been vocal about his experiences and perspectives since the insurrection, made the remarks about Trump during a public appearance or interview. His comments highlighted concerns about Trump’s influence and actions related to the events of January 6.

Shortly after the officer’s statements, his mother was “swatted,” a malicious act where someone makes a false report to emergency services, leading to a heavily armed police response to the victim’s home. This dangerous prank can result in severe consequences, including physical harm or death, as law enforcement responds to what they believe is a critical and immediate threat.

The timing of the swatting incident raises concerns about the potential for targeted harassment against individuals who speak out against high-profile figures. The officer and his family are cooperating with authorities to identify the perpetrator and bring them to justice.
