Did you see the photo of the swatter? Sometimes stereotypes are dead on matches.
You may want to check your privelege. This guy looks like he works at kinkos https://www.gamespot.com/articles/arrested-swatter-faces-maximum-five-year-prison-se/1100-6425220/

He looks like a young Jack Black.
stereotypical thug

That's not the guy arrested last night. Tyler Raj Barriss was arrested last night. He looks, well, like an unemployed 25 year old, but not like a cheeto-obsessed gamer.

He doesn't look like a 25 year old out of work millenial. He's acted like a terrorist who called in multiple bomb threats before getting some innocent kid killed by swatting him and his family.

I don't mean to downplay the idiot cop's actions in this but that kid would not have been killed if Tyler Raj Barriss wasn't a total scumbag.

Internet fake-news trolls are taking over the free world.

People are rightly outraged but I've seen very little in the discussion on how to actually win this fight. "better training" isn't going to cut it, there were multiple levels of failure here.

I think we need an AI that can have a hope in hell of tackling this problem, I don't know anything else that has a chance. If you think that you need "human eyes" on a problem to solve it... well, ask the cop in this case.

And now might be the time to start talking about the nature of an AI like this, long before it's a reality. Because it will be a reality one day, probably sooner than most think, and we don't want to let the important ethical questions sneak up on us without proper reflection.

Check out this stereotypical Nigerian Prince responsible for 'those' emails.

You can't just link articles that say "wire fraud." You'll give our resident fake Canuckistani-American Lawyer a boner.

A bewildered young man being blinded by a spotlight and yelled at loses his life, and a cop with an itchy trigger finger becomes judge, jury and executioner.

Hey, the suspect should have done as he was told.

Hey, the officer thought he had a gun.

Hey, the officer felt his life was in danger.

Am I getting close?
Or, Hey, I'm blinded by a spotlight but maybe there is a one in a thousand chance i can pull a gun, focus, aim and get off a round before being gunned down by 6 or more police officers who already have me in their sights with fingers on the trigger.

Yes, we know that and we also know it was not Jack Black. The point I made was there is no such thing as a stereotypical swatter, that's just ludicrous.
