ATTENTION EVERYONE

  • as you may or may not have known, this guy and @ScrewPain were the guys responsible for swatting the creatures. this caused a shit down of schools, leak of personal information and innocent people almost got hurt because of it.
  • in this time, i’ve kept an eye on spiky’s twitter and he’s swatted several innocent streamers [he posts proof and gloats about it]  and plans to keep doing it. he and pain both think they’re invincible and it needs to stop.
  • pain said he’s going to pax and im seriously worried he’ll swat that place too, so i just want to post a warning to everyone.
  • i know that he is 100% serious who knows what other youtuber or innocent streamer they’ll do it to next. 

EVEN IF YOU DON’T LIKE ROOSTERTEETH, SPREAD THE WORD. PEOPLE CAN BE HURT OR KILLED BECAUSE OF THIS.

As an FYI:

"Swatting" is a prank that sets the SWAT team on let’s players and sometimes during their live streams. This method is done by hacking the person’s personal information.
THIS IS NO JOKE.
Here’s a few videos of what this “prank” does(I’ll be referring the gamers by their aliases):

-This one is what the above statement is referring to. This is Kootra, a member of The Creatures Hub. His experience is the most recent.

-This one is taken in a more comedic manner but another let’s player named coL.n0thing was also swatted.

-Here’s AustinFFA talking about his experience and talking a little more about “swatting”. 

Please let others know about this, and if there’s anything that can be done about it, please spread the word too. This illegal action is extremely dangerous! If you’ve been keeping up with the behavior of our country’s police force, you know that anyone’s life is at risk!

“In 2002, having spent more than three years in one residence for the first time in my life, I got called for jury duty. I show up on time, ready to serve. When we get to the voir dire, the lawyer says to me, “I see you’re an astrophysicist. What’s that?” I answer, “Astrophysics is the laws of physics, applied to the universe—the Big Bang, black holes, that sort of thing.” Then he asks, “What do you teach at Princeton?” and I say, “I teach a class on the evaluation of evidence and the relative unreliability of eyewitness testimony.” Five minutes later, I’m on the street.

A few years later, jury duty again. The judge states that the defendant is charged with possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine. It was found on his body, he was arrested, and he is now on trial. This time, after the Q&A is over, the judge asks us whether there are any questions we’d like to ask the court, and I say, “Yes, Your Honor. Why did you say he was in possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine? That equals 1.7 grams. The ‘thousand’ cancels with the ‘milli-’ and you get 1.7 grams, which is less than the weight of a dime.” Again I’m out on the street.”

Exactly.

“I teach a class on the evaluation of evidence and the relative unreliability of eyewitness testimony.” Five minutes later, I’m on the street.

This is a good illustration of what’s wrong with the US criminal justice system.

I’m more struck by the second anecdote, in which he was evidently disqualified from jury duty for displaying the ability to do math.
