Comment: As noted in the above stories, swatters use spoofing technology to hide the real location of their prank calls. Given the potential for death or injury when a SWAT Team responds to one of these "swatting" calls, there can be little doubt about the value of location derived information to the 9-1-1 community, as well as the evil that can be done when someone intentionally distorts that information.
