Breaking News: Conservative blogger arrested in Maryland
Over the past few days, many conservative bloggers have been blogging about Brett Kimberlin. Kimberlin is a liberal financed activist, convicted felon and bomber, who has been using the legal system to attack anyone who dares to talk about his background. Several of those who have been critical of Kimberlin have become the victims of “swatting.” Swatting is where someone calls in on either a blocked number or manages to spoof the real number of someone and says something like, “I just killed my wife.” The police arrive, guns drawn and it is a very dangerous situation.
One of the critics of Kimberlin is conservative blogger and Virginia attorney Aaron Walker. Kimberlin filed for a Peace bond against Walker, claiming Walker had threatened him.
Today in Maryland there was a hearing on the Peace Bond. Walker has blogged extensively about what it is like to be the target of Kimberlin and what he has been through.
Today a judge ruled that blogging, an activity protected by the First Amendment, violated the peace bond and took Aaron Walker to jail.
The latest reports we have are that Walker is in custody but will be released later. While the details are scarce, presumably he will be allowed to appeal the decision of the judge and will be released pending that appeal.
This is an absolute miscarriage of justice and we must not be silent on this.
Aaron Walker’s blog is Allergic to bull.
Our friend Ali K. Akbar is following the story on the ground. You can follow his twitter feed @ali. Lee Stranahan is also following this on the ground and providing information via twitter. @Stranahan.
If you want to help the bloggers targeted by Kimberlin, Michelle Malkin has a good list of to do items, which were written before Aaron Walker was incarcerated today.
Tell everyone what is going on with Aaron Walker. We cannot be silent while liberal thugs silence conservative bloggers.
If we are silent now, we will soon never be able to speak again.
