Trans activist swatted in Canada. Police say she is still a suspect

    Irregular case of a reportedly noteworthy trans activist from Canada who was recently swatted by Canadian police.

    according to the report the police received threats by email from someone claiming to be her, deadnaming herself etc. in the emails that she was going to go on a cisgender killing spree and had murdered her own mother. None of which turned out to be true.

    She’s been released without incident since the swatting and detainment but the local police say she’s still a suspect. They aren’t sure if she cooked this up herself for publicity yet is my read of it

    Trends of swatting people over petty disputes, transphobia etc are around but so are political false flags especially in small time cases (eg. Ashley Todd in 2008 carved a mirrored “B” into her own forehead and blamed it on Obama activists and was sentenced to first offense probation). Don’t know which this is yet.
