Someone made threats of violence online using someone else's open wi-fi and then police SWAT-ted and threw flashbang grenades into the house with the Wi-fi, where there was just this young lady watching TV. They were filming it for to make Glorious Police Propaganda Film.
Ooooops. Film not so glorious after all.
So, password protect your wi-fi. I guess it doesn't matter where you live, you still might get SWAT-ted by accident even if you don't live next door to a drug pusher. But you really should password protect your wi-fi anyway, not just against people dumb enough to make threats using telecommunications systems with spies all over them, but against everyone.
I am also going to research how to harden your house against SWAT teams (short of getting one of those Safe Houses from that Polish architect built) and get back to you. You might not stop them forever (they're persistent if nothing else) but at least maybe you can slow them down long enough to find out what they want and make them realize they've got the wrong house. Or whatever.
