Patterico's Pontifications

Maryland Prosecutor to Aaron Walker’s Wife: “If you’re so concerned about your safety, don’t come to Maryland.”

Filed under: Brett Kimberlin,General — Patterico @ 7:33 am

Last month, I showed you pictures that Brett Kimberlin took of Aaron Walker and his wife as they were conducting business at a Maryland courthouse in a different county from where Kimberlin lives.

I blurred out the faces. The web site that first published them, the Kimberlin-related Breitbart Unmasked site, did not.

As I told you last month:

The first time, Aaron says, Kimberlin took pictures or video footage of Aaron’s wife while she was waiting in the car outside the courthouse. Aaron had seen Kimberlin inside the courthouse and asked his wife to wait in the car, where he thought she would be safer. But Kimberlin slipped outside without Aaron noticing. According to Aaron’s post, Kimberlin parked his car behind Aaron’s, circled the car, saw Aaron’s wife, pulled his car around to face her, and took footage or pictures of her as she sat inside the car. Aaron says Kimberlin smiled as he did this, which is extraordinarily creepy.

Aaron and his wife reported the incident to police, and Kimberlin photographed them as they did so (see the second picture). Aaron’s wife was reportedly in tears for much of the rest of the day.

Since then, the Breitbart Unmasked site has published another picture taken of Aaron, apparently at a courthouse, which it first published about a year ago, when Brett Kimberlin was trying to have Aaron jailed for blogging. It is a low angle shot taken in a hallway without Aaron’s knowledge. Whoever took it was just feet away when they surreptitiously took the picture.

Aaron and his wife recently spoke to a local prosecutor in Maryland, and according to Aaron, when Aaron’s wife told the prosecutors about the feelings of fear she had experienced, the prosecutor replied: “If you’re so concerned about your safety, don’t come to Maryland.”

This isn’t a post about the prosecutor’s refusal to file charges in any particular case. This is about that comment, and the attitude it represents. John Hoge asks what is, to my way of thinking, the relevant question: “Is it the policy of [the] State’s Attorney that non-residents of Maryland must or should avoid entering the state if they are being stalked by a Maryland resident?”

I’d like to add one detail to complete the picture for you. The pictures above first appeared at the Breitbart Unmasked web site, which often breaks news known only to Brett Kimberlin. When those pictures were first published, the site refused to say who had taken them. But a commenter at the Breitbart Unmasked web site named “Texas Tim” admitted (perhaps inadvertently) that it was Kimberlin. (“Texas Tim” always claims to have inside information favorable to Kimberlin about every controversy; in a future post I will demonstrate how comical his claims to insider knowledge are.) The fact that “Texas Tim” knew Kimberlin had taken the pictures, when that fact had not yet been publicly revealed by anyone, demonstrates a close relationship between “Texas Tim” and Brett Kimberlin. If Texas Tim is not Kimberlin’s sock puppet, they are certainly sharing information in back channels.

Why does this matter? Because around this same time, Kimberlin associate “Texas Tim” made reference to Aaron having a “no trespassing” sign by the front door of his Virginia house. I called up Aaron to ask if he actually has such a sign by his front door. He told me he does.

He had not publicly revealed that when I asked.

How does Brett Kimberlin’s pal (or sock puppet) “Texas Tim” know that Aaron has a “no trespassing” sign by his front door in Virginia?

Good guess? Or has someone been by Aaron’s house to look at it, and perhaps take pictures?

Aaron Walker doesn’t have to go to Maryland to be stalked.

“If you’re so concerned about your safety, don’t come to Maryland.”

It’s hard for me to envision how a comment like this from a prosecutor can be appropriate.

  1. Just like the old country we haz a titular Queen, local K-12 education departments who want out of the business with pensions, and Polizia that only serve to enforce government mores on the rabble, taxpayers.

  2. Kman’s comments will be moderated and I will review them to make sure they relate to the topic of the post.

  3. By the way, Kimberlin friend Bill Schmalfeldt has threatened to release the home address and phone number of anyone who blogs about this issue today.

    Journalism!

  4. I felt disgust at the willful ignorance of the prosecutor when he insisted that anyone’s problem with Kimberlin (et al.) is his politics.

    Just throwing this out there… but has anyone considered Google Maps Street View? I would be interested to know if that shows the sign. If it doesn’t, that certainly would lend credibility to the theory that Walker is being stalked in Virginia.

  6. Dear Prosecutor — May I respectfully suggest that as I worry about your safety, you should remain in Maryland?

  7. You say that it’s hard to envision how ASA Brewer’s remarks were appropriate. You’re not alone. Several other lawyers who are or have been ADAs/ASAs that I’ve talked to had trouble believing that he could have said such things. More than one thought that the DA or SA he worked for would fire anyone saying something like “don’t come to our state” or “stay off the Internet.”

  8. If the prosecutor is a Democrat he can say anything he wants to. Don’t you know anything?

  9. And for those lacking proper context for all this: That would be “convicted Speedway bomber” Brett Kimberlin. It’s been a while since he actually blew anyone up, but he is a convicted felon who should NOT be out.

    BK and his small, yet dim group of cohorts has been able to convince judges and prosecutors that this is just an internet argument. Things like SWATtings and firings are happening in real life. Of course, folks could just stay out of Maryland, and things would be just fine.

  10. While there is a lot of focus on corruption in Illinois, New Jersey etc., Maryland has long been pretty much completely corrupt.

  11. Actually I think it’s generally good advice for everyone. If you’re concerned for your safety, don’t go to Maryland. That prosecutor was just voicing the general attitude of the powers-that-be toward the value of the lives of the serfs.

    The last thing they’re going to let you do is defend it. And they’re not.

  12. Once upon a time, we used to recognize people like Brett Kimberlin and acknowledge that this type of individual is mentally unstable. Nowadays, we only complain after the mentally unstable individual harms someone. Then we demand that law abiding Americans give up rights.

  14. I agree with Steve57 100%. It’s just refreshing honesty about a frustrating fact.

    The thing that frustrates me about Maryland is that for Brett, there has been inaction, while for Aaron, there has been a strange extralegal overreaction, such as when he was arrested or when Maryland ordered him to stop speaking about Kimberlin. They eventually recognized their error on both those matters, but it’s odd to me that a system that yawns at crimes was so ready to act against an innocent person.

    So why? I initially thought the reason for the inaction was laziness. Maybe not.

    Brett C. Kimberlin schemed to elude justice with a series of bizarre plots designed to murder, maim and rob his enemies, create havoc at Speedway and discredit the chief government prosecutor.

    These plots occurred as lawmen followed the trail of the man who terrorized Speedway with bombs in 1978. They were revealed to the Indianapolis Star last week after a federal jury convicted Kimberlin of the bombings

    On sheets of yellow legal pad, Kimberlin asked another inmate in the Marion County Jail to arrange for the murder of Bernard L. (Buddy) Pylitt, the former first assistant U.S. attorney who coordinated his prosecution.

    The offer contained a list of 10 names, including a potential prosecution witness, Robert Scott Bixler. Some names had crosses next to them. These indicated those marked for murder, it was learned.

    Other names, believed to be persons who cheated Kimberlin in drug deal, were marked with dollar signs. They were to be roughed up and robbed.

    Maybe the reason for selective inaction is fear, given that Kimberlin plotted to murder a prosecutor who did enforce the law against him. In my book, that’s why they must stand up to him.

    Reportedly, when Aaron moved for discovery, he asked for any knowledge Kimberlin had about SWATtings, and Kimberlin plead the fifth. Also it’s worth remembering that Kimberlin accused Julia Scyphers of harassing him just a few days before she was executed by gunshot and the Speedway, Indiana bombings commenced. There is a plain sense of who the bad guy is here. They know this just as well as I do.

    Texas Tim promised to seek me out in person, in a comment to Kimberlin’s post with pictures of my home and comments about my family. I believe this is why he took the name ‘Texas Tim’ [oh no, he must really be in Texas then]. He did not keep that promise.

    Of course, Tim’s later comments indicate he’s actually in Maryland. I hate to offer my opinion about who the author of the Tim comments is, as I’ve been mistaken about that kind of thing a few times. For example, repeatedly I’ve thought an unrealistically bellicose conservative is a moby, and it turns out they’re not. It’s clear enough that Tim is a mouthpiece for harassing Kimberlin’s critics. I hope whoever the author is wasn’t making a serious effort to be a believable persona. Their efforts to silence people only motivated good folks to get involved. Unfortunately, it didn’t motivate Maryland’s prosecutors.

  17. I have released a comment by Kman above:

    Just throwing this out there… but has anyone considered Google Maps Street View? I would be interested to know if that shows the sign. If it doesn’t, that certainly would lend credibility to the theory that Walker is being stalked in Virginia.

    Excellent comment, Kman, and I think this is worth a new post. The answer is no. Google Maps Street View does NOT show it.

    Which, as you point out, lends credibility to the theory that Aaron is being stalked in Virginia.

  18. When even Kman makes a concession like this, you know the Kimberlin folks are behaving badly.

    Don’t worry, though. Kman will be along to spin this in 3..2..1…

    Patterico (9c670f)

  19. Thank you, EPWJ. That’s very kind.

    It’s amazing the number of good folks who have been impacted by these stalkers and creeps.

    Kman, good comment. I agree with you this time. Given this, and that creepy website with several posts with no purpose other than stalking Kimberlin’s critics, and the behavior outside the court described in the post above, it is difficult to understand why Maryland wouldn’t want to enforce the law. But it is easy to understand why Maryland doesn’t think Maryland is a safe place for the law abiding.

  20. I find it odd that Jim Brewer would rather harm Maryland’s tourism and hospitality industry rather than enforce the state’s own laws. Who knew that MD’s economy was doing so well that state officials could afford to tell people not to come and spend money there?

  22. Maryland is pushing business’ out of the state but it is a hotbed of corruptoin – Nancy Pelosi is the daughter of an old fashioned Daley style political crime family who grip over the county and city government (Maryland is just baltimore) was finally losened just a few years back but the residual corruption is quite great.

  23. No, actually, once upon a time we made sure people like Kimberlin made a one way trip to Tyburn hill.

    This, precisely.

    These people would have ended up alone, cold, hungry, at a time in history when that meant a little bad luck could end your life. They are the epitome of anti-social.

    Now, you’re not even allowed to defend yourself against them, and have to treat them as if they’re “special”.

  24. Maybe the reason for selective inaction is fear, given that Kimberlin plotted to murder a prosecutor who did enforce the law against him. In my book, that’s why they must stand up to him.

    Except that he since proved himself useful with the Quayle lie and who knows what since. He’s protected by someone high up in the Democrat party.

    (Doesn’t it strike anyone else that a convicted bomber who violated his parole two, maybe three times, joining/founding a non-profit would see that non-profit audited repeatedly? One of his parole violations was a fraudulent loan application; wouldn’t that call for his non-profit to be watched closely? Yet we know that he’s late on filings, the filings are incomplete, and nothing happens…)
