David Hogberg of Investor’s Business Daily sheds light on the issuance of the warrant for Aaron Walker’s arrest:
I went back to the District Court of Maryland for Montgomery County on Friday to get a copy of the warrant for Walker. I have uploaded it here (addresses and phone numbers are redacted).
The warrant was filed by Kimberlin on Sunday, and from it a few things are now clear that I got wrong in the post from last week. First, Kimberlin claims that Walker violated the second peace order Kimberlin filed against Walker, not the first. Kimberlin filed the second peace order on May 22, and it is “temporarily” in effect until the hearing on May 29th. In it, Kimberlin basically claims that the blog posts Walker wrote between May 22 and May 27 constitute a violation of the peace order (more on that in a bit).
Also, in the blog I wrote that the “court apparently agreed (that Walker had violated the peace order) and Walker was arrested.” That leaves the impression that the judge had Walker arrested. He did not. Rather, the warrant was carried out by a Montgomery County Sheriff, as is clear from the first page of the warrant. The easiest way for a sheriff to arrest someone is to know exactly where he is, and the sheriff obviously knew Walker would be in court that day.
Always trust content from Patterico. As I reported the day of the hearing:
As best as I can tell, the arrest occurred because Brett Kimberlin got a warrant from a judge two days ago, for a criminal charge of violation of a peace order.
Hogberg has performed an invaluable service in obtaining the pack of lies Kimberlin used to get this warrant issued. Read it here:
Among other things, Kimberlin the convicted perjurer says:
Mr. Walker has tweeted on Twitter about me in alarming and annoying ways over hundreds of times the past week and urged others to attack me. He has generated hundreds of blog posts directly and indirectly based on false allegations that I framed him for an assault.
Mr. Walker has had many people threaten me directly with death, and told me to stop talking to the police, and not show up in court or I would die. I received these threats over the past few days via email.
Look at how that is phrased. Kimberlin is saying that Aaron told him not to show up in court or he would die.
That is a lie. Brett Kimberlin lied to get Aaron arrested.
Mr. Walker has urged people to intimidate me if I come to court on Tuesday by tweeting for a mob of people to show up. He has repeatedly said he would make me pay for seeking legal redress.
So if Aaron asks people to come support him at the hearing, Kimberlin says Aaron “urged people to intimidate me.”
I have received many threats by electronic contact on behalf of Mr. Walker.
Which is his fault, how?
Mr. Walker has urged people to publish my address and phone number on the Internet and they did.
I submit that this is also a blatant lie. Aaron has never “urged” people to publish Kimberlin’s address or phone number.
I want a competent judge to put Kimberlin under oath and MAKE HIM PROVE his allegation that Aaron urged people to publish Kimberlin’s address and phone number on the Internet.
I’ll remind you that Brett Kimberlin’s web site OccupyforAccountability.org (donations go to Kimberlin’s Velvet Revolution) published my home address online. And Google street view pictures and aerial pictures of my home. They did the same thing to Andrew Breitbart.
And an anonymous web site run by a Kimberlin supporter who appears to be in close contact with Kimberlin has published divorce records of one of my commenters, as well as scads of other personal information about the commenter, including pictures of a family member’s home.
Now a similar thing has happened to Ali Akbar of the National Bloggers’ Club — and Velvet Revolution has threatened to sue them. (For what? you might ask. As if they need a valid reason. They want NBC’s emails, and they don’t care whether their claim is frivolous or not. They just want discovery.)
It will continue. The thuggish attempts at intimidation will continue. The barrage of lies to get trumped up criminal charges will continue. The frivolous litigation will continue. Until Congress investigates these people. Until prosecutors start holding Kimberlin accountable for his serial string of lies told under oath.
Until someone puts a stop to this insanity, in a lawful, ethical, and nonviolent way. (I will tolerate no suggestion of any other method.)
Until that happens . . . this thuggish and dishonest behavior that is the hallmark of Brett Kimberlin will continue.
P.S. I’m in on the day of silence, by the way. Hell, I’ll go further than that. It’s going to be a weekend of silence for me.
P.P.S. Part of me, frankly, wants to just shut down the blog period, until Aaron is legally allowed to speak again. But I recognize that there are things I can do by speaking that would be more effective. I take time out of my schedule to write a post like this, for example, because I know Aaron can’t.
