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