|Encyclopedia Dramatica does not recommend swatting EVER. If you do it and get caught we will laugh at you and most likely create an article about how much of a dumb fuck you are.
Good luck anyway.
"SWATting," or "Swatting," is basically the definition of serious business. It is a method of pwning others IRL, but at the same time it is most often attempted by people whom, generally speaking, can't get anything done. Most Swatting attempts go nowhere and if you don't know what you're doing you could end up with visit from the partyvan yourself.
The point of a SWAT attempt is to troll a local police forces' 1337, lethal, super cereal SWAT (Special Weapons And Tactics) team into becoming your personal army and send them into action by directing them to raid your unsuspecting target's home. This hopefully results in all manner of drama and lulz featuring helicopters with blinding searchlights waking up the entire neighborhood, a blockade of armored personnel carriers surrounding the victim's house, tear gas and flashbang grenades getting lobbed through their (closed) windows, a front door smashed to pieces after being leveled with a battering ram, followed by dozen or more heavily armed IRL tough guys in body armor with itchy trigger fingers and snarling attack dogs and, ultimately, the victim's death after a sudden move. If they are lucky enough to make it out of this sticky situation alive somehow, they will end up eternally shunned and mocked by their family, the neighbours and your peers.
tl;dr: A SWAT raid is typically executed via caller ID spoofing in conjunction with a little social engineering to convince the authorities to raid the target's home. A SWAT raid executed properly is the ultimate in using an IRL personal army to do your bidding and will either end in tears, über pwnage or death...or all three.
It should be noted that whilst your dog curtains may well be your best and first line of defense against the steroidal hackers of the Internet Hate Machine, buying a dog will not help you when a SWAT team rappels through you bedroom window. Fido is no match for a .50 cal Browning Machine Gun.

—Tyler Barriss trying to play internet tough guy in an interview
Tyler Barriss is your typical, whiny ass, little bitch that every online player dreads getting auto-matched against because the second they lose they break into a barrage of racial insults, cusses and declarations of how you had to have cheated and how they would kick your ass IRL if you were to meet because they are way too 1337 to lose to a noob like you. In other words, your basic 13-year-old, Autistic as fuck, basement dwelling, has no life player.
Like most of your online, never been laid crowd, Tyler thought himself clever by advertising his favorite Troll tactic by going by the online name of SWAuTistic because, having reached the age of 25, Tyler had grown out of running to his mommy to chastise the winning player, over an open mic, for not letting her Special Boy win to faking 911 calls that included bomb threats.
It was on 27 December 2017, when Tyler was sufficiently Butthurt over losing a $1 bet playing Call of Duty online that he decided to SWAT the winner. Following the internet rules of Anonymous and probably sensing what could be a potential psycho fucktard, the winning player gave Barriss fake Dox to send the money to if he were to win, which in reality belonged to Andrew Finch and led to his being gunned down by cops.
According to Wichita Police, Barriss called 911 and claimed to have killed his father and was holding his mother and younger brother hostage. "I shot him in the head and he's not breathing anymore," Barriss said to 911, "I might just pour gasoline all over the house; I might just set it on fire." Barriss finished on the 911 recording.
Andrew Finch, the 28-year-old, committed husband and father of 2 was shot to death in front of his now traumatized children when a trigger happy, Wichita SWAT team arrived at his home and opened fire on him when, they claim, he reached for his waist band after being told to place his hands in the air.
After hearing about a man being killed by his fake police report, Barriss tried to shun responsibility and place it on tge person who gave him the fake Dox when he tweeted this now deleted post, "I DIDNT GET ANYONE KILLED BECAUSE I DIDNT DISCHARGE A WEAPON AND BEING A SWAT MEMBER ISNT MY PROFESSION"
Although it doesn't really require any extreme technical proficiency to pull it off, most who attempt it either are too inexperienced, incapable of convincing the authorities, or just prone to bitching out at any sign of trouble. So, many Swatting attempts go nowhere...but don't feel too safe.
