Congresswoman Sandy Adams (R) FL-24 released a statement this evening in response to today’s swatting of blogger Aaron Walker:
With the increase in these dangerous incidents, it is clear that our citizens and law enforcement officers are at risk. I hope Attorney General Holder seriously considers the letter my colleagues and I sent him asking the Department of Justice to investigate these incidents and prosecute the perpetrators to the fullest extent of the law.
Congresswoman Adams served for seventeen years as a deputy sheriff in the Orange County Sheriff’s Office in Florida. The Congresswoman sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder urging the Department of Justice to investigate the suppression of free speech using intimidation tactics such as SWATtings. The letter was signed by 87 Congressmen and can be found here.
