    I'll chalk this up to good cops, because it could have ended so very badly.

    Even with all the below, the person of interest could not be disturbed for about 20 minutes!
    "Cops tried for 20 minutes to call Rafael and get him to come out, but he had headphones on and was still glued to his video game console."


    "Long Island police dispatched helicopters, emergency vehicles and an army of cops to a home where someone called in a bloody rampage on Tuesday.

    They arrived with guns drawn and ready for war — only to find out the call to cops was an act of revenge by a gamer whom the teen who lives inside had just beaten in an online Call of Duty battle."

    "In the two-hour standoff, authorities scrambled choppers over the house and rushed in more than 60 officers with weapons drawn — including elite members of Nassau County’s special operations unit."

    There is a full SWAT team in your front yard, and you can't get off your stupid game.

    The person - child or not - who called in the hoax, needs to loose all access to computers, including mobile, for a long time - add up all those man hours, convert to days.

    Didn't the Law of Moses have a provision that a false accuser suffered the same penalty for the crime he accused another of committing???

    Maybe that wouldn't be such a bad idea . . .
