"The Serial Swatter."

"Internet trolls have learned to exploit our over-militarized police. It's a crime that's hard to stop — and hard to prosecute."

I stopped reading when I got to the "lax gun laws" injection. They just cannot help themselves, can they?

There's really only one way to beat swatters.

Make yourself known to law enforcement as someone they DO NOT want to mess around with.

There are a number of ways to do this, my way involves making it very clear that cops coming to my house will get the just reward of traitors and oathbreakers. Others go for building a relationship with their local PD, or having a private security force which they cops will need to consult before entering.

All of these tactics have costs, often significant ones, so you need to pick the one that fits best into your overall strategy.

I'm surprised that not one of these gamers ever thought to turn the tables on their tormenter, and SWAT HIM! Turnabout is fair play, as I was taught.
Keep up the pressure, often and repeated, until the little psycho either did something blatantly illegal, or hollered "UNCLE".

I could go off in other directions, but I'll save those meanderings for another time.

I will spare you from my solution as posting it might get me swatted.
