Aaron Worthing Led Out Of Court Today In Handcuffs! #BrettKimberlin

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/05/29

Aaron Walker, a Virginia Attorney who blogs under the name Aaron Worthing, had a court appearance facing Brett Kimberlin, the Speedway Bomber, the convicted bomber, the convicted drug-runner, the convicted perjurer, the convicted forger (forging Federal Documents to get his bomb-making material), the serial intimidator, the serial harasser, a man who has over 33 felony convictions on his rap sheet.

For those who still don’t know (and how could you not know?), Brett Kimberlin lied under oath in an attempt to fram Aaron Worthing for a second degree felony Aaron Worthing did not commit — and the courthouse cameras prove Brett Kimberlin lied under oath in his attempt to frame Aaron Worthing. You can see the video on Aaron’s site (http://allergic2bull.blogspot.com) or on Truth Before Dishonor. You can read Patterico’s multiple pre-2012 articles about Brett Kimberlin on Truth Before Dishonor. You can also read a great many Aaron Worthing articles about Brett Kimberlin on Truth Before Dishonor. I have reproduced those articles, in their entirety (save for some images and videos that didn’t copy over as efficiently as I needed). Study to show yourselves approved.

Do read Robert Stacy McCain’s report about today’s incident. (By the way, Robert Stacy McCain and his entire family are in hiding specifically due to threats and perceived threats received from Brett Kimberlin.)

Maryland Judge Judge C.J. Vaughey needs to do a little bit of research. First off, that judge needs to study the US Constitution, specifically the First Amendment to the US Constitution. Secondly, Maryland Judge C.J. Vaughey needs to learn about Brett Kimberlin and his history of lying under oath and domestic terrorism.

CJ Vaughey may not live in a country that is governed by the US Constitution, but Truth Before Dishonor and its authors do.

My Local Police Department Doesn’t Know What SWATting Is

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/05/28

I called my local police department’s non-emergency line today. I talked to 3 different people, none of whom had ever heard of the term SWATting, and none of whom had ever heard of Brett Kimberlin. My local police department is responsible for protecting over 100,000 people from criminals. And they were totally unaware.

Now, I’m very much a micro-blog, so Kimberlin and crew are far less likely to try to SWAT me. But I am actively republishing articles written by two attorneys — one of them an assistant District Attorney in Los Angeles County — who are being actively intimidated and harassed, one of whom (the ADA) had been SWATted, so that does increase my risk factor somewhat.

But I let the local Law Enforcement know in advance, just in case.

For more information, check out Patterico’s Pontifications, Red State, Hot Air, and Michelle Malkin.

UPDATE
After having written this brief article, Aaron Walker, the Virginia Attorney who blogs by the name of Aaron Worthing, got SWATted.

#BrettKimberlin Bomb Maims Military Veteran, Kimberlin Song Mocks Dead Victim

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/05/28

Attention Brett Kimberlin shills and co-conspirators (You know who you are, Neal Rauhauser, Ron Brynaert, Richard Symonds, Brad Friedman, Nadia Naffe, Jay Liederman, et al): You are supporting a felon with more than 33 convictions to his name, who maimed and caused the suicide of a US Military veteran in his attempts to distract from his other crimes, and then went to create a music video to mock that US Military veteran he maimed and caused to commit suicide. There is a special place in sheol for each and every one of you.

From Aaron Worthing:

 

Did Brett Kimberlin Mock His Victim Carl DeLong in a Music Video?

 

First off, if you haven’t been following the Kimberlin Saga® let me suggest you start here.

But this post is written for those of you who are following along.  As I have told you before, Brett Kimberlin is a convicted terrorist known as the Speedway Bomber.  I have quoted this passage from Kimberlin v. White, 7 F. 3d 527 (6th Cir. 1993) before, but it is particularly important to pay attention to the details this time:
 
Kimberlin was convicted as the so-called “Speedway Bomber,” who terrorized the city of Speedway, Indiana, by detonating a series of explosives in early September 1978. In the worst incident, Kimberlin placed one of his bombs in a gym bag, and left it in a parking lot outside Speedway High School. Carl DeLong was leaving the high school football game with his wife when he attempted to pick up the bag and it exploded. The blast tore off his lower right leg and two fingers, and embedded bomb fragments in his wife’s leg. He was hospitalized for six weeks, during which he was forced to undergo nine operations to complete the amputation of his leg, reattach two fingers, repair damage to his inner ear, and remove bomb fragments from his stomach, chest, and arm. In February 1983, he committed suicide.
 
So one thing I have known about but haven’t mentioned yet, was his work with the band Op-critical.  Stephen Gutowski over at MRCTV has a pretty good backgrounder on this band:
 
It appears that sometime around 2006, several years after Kimberlin was released from prison, he joined a band named Op-Critical. The band’s music can best be described as liberal alternative rock and they claim some of it has been featured at ACLU and Amnesty International events. Their music mirrors that of other little known liberal bands who trashed Bush in the later part of his presidency and would be unremarkable if it weren’t for the fact that one of the guys playing guitar and singing is a violent criminal.
 
Take, for instance, the Op-Critical song titled Fear. The song describes Americans being fearful and “thinking that the plastic bag maybe isn’t innocent” and how that undue fear is being used by Bush to control them. The lyrics mocking the fear of terrorist attacks would, again, be unremarkable for a late 2000s liberal band if they weren’t sung by a man convicted of setting off bombs in a small American town and the music video didn’t feature that bomber lurking around the Cleveland Park DC Metro station complete with shots of an unattended bag.
 
But when I looked at the video I saw something that Gutowski didn’t.  It wasn’t just a bag, but…

 

 
 
Do you see what I see?  Not just an unattended bag, but an unattended gym bag.  You know just like the one that maimed Carl DeLong.  So this man who placed a bomb in a gym bag—and by the way, left it at a high school football game, where children could have been hurt—is telling us not to be scared of unattended gym bags.  It is hard not to see that as a mockery of the crime he committed against Carl DeLong.
 
One of my favorite entries last Friday was by a friend of mine, Dustin (who has also been a victim of the Korrupt Kimberlin Krew’s harassment), who shared with us the suicide note of Carl DeLong.  If you haven’t read it, it is a must-read and genuinely powerful, as a father says goodbye to his family.

And Brett Kimberlin decided to mock how he took this man’s life, to mock the very fear that could have kept Carl DeLong alive.  If it had occurred to Carl DeLong that an unattended gym bag was a threat, perhaps he would have done something different and this wouldn’t have led him down a path that led him to take his own life.  Perhaps whatever pain the DeLong family has felt could have been avoided.  So the next time someone says that Kimberlin is reformed etc., remember that he actually mocked one of his victims in a music video.

 
Let’s watch the whole thing:
 
 
Of course this is far from the only example of Op-critical’s music videos taking on new meaning when you know about its guitarist and vocalist’s criminal past.  For instance, Op-critical put out a song called Exile, described on its YouTube page as “Protest music video against torture and rendition. Contains actual torture footage.”  At about the 1:30 mark, the video shows Brett Kimberlin walking along, minding his own business when suddenly a black SUV filled with apparent government agents pulls up and captures him in the image on the right.
 
And that is followed by extensive footage of Brett Kimberlin being tortured, waterboarded, etc.  And get a load of this at the 2:16 mark:
 
 
 
It’s blood.  Presumably fake blood.  Which is pretty significant given that I have suggested before that his photographs of his supposed bruises were fake, perhaps by using make-up to create a fake image of a bruise, and now we see concrete proof that he knows people who know how to create realistic but fake injuries.  And I am not going to put any recent pictures of his face up on this blog, but if you go through the video you will see images of his face with fake wounds on it and then you will see the picture on the right.
 
And I wonder if it would have changed the point of view of anyone commenting on the video about how infuriated they were by our treatment of suspected terrorist if they knew that the star of the video was not a suspected terrorist, but a convicted terrorist.
 
Let’s watch the whole thing:
 
 
Update: Lee Stranahan looks at the Exile video and sees something I didn’t: “he seems to be showing you how he sees himself; an unjustly imprisoned man who was tortured by brutal authorities.”  I would quibble that we are really seeing how he presents himself; whether he believes that he was actually innocent of the bombings is beyond understanding.

And I will have to apologize for this next video.  Up until now there was an acceptable–not “:great,” but “acceptable”–level of quality in the music, but this is just grating in the pitch of the singing.  But notice something in the opening footage.  It starts with Hitler declaring that the big lies are more likely to be believed—an ironic quote given Kimberlin’s record for honesty—but on top of that the very next images are of…  September 11, suggesting that he buys into the Truther “Reichstag fire” theory of 9-11 as an inside job.  Lovely:

 
 
And we get one final video from him.  It’s a remake of For What It’s Worth, only dedicated to the current Occupy movement:
 
 
Which is unremarkable except for one detail.  Go to the YouTube page for it and look at the upload date:
 
Oh, lookie here (see right)!  On the day after I supposedly put him in the hospital and he was supposedly recovering from his grievous injuries, he was putting a music video on YouTube.
 
—————————————
 
My wife and I have lost our jobs due to the harassment of convicted terrorist Brett Kimberlin, including an attempt to get us killed and to frame me for a crime carrying a sentence of up to ten years.  I know that claim sound fantastic, but if you read starting here, you will see absolute proof of these claims using documentary and video evidence.  If you would like to donate and help my wife and I in this time of need, please go to this donation page.  And thank you.

#BrettKimberlin Continues With His Intimidation Tactics

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/05/28

May 25, 2012 was National Write About Brett Kimberlin Day (which got international attention). It was a smashing success, much to Brett Kimberlin’s dismay. Bloggers, huge and tiny and everywhere in between, talk radio, FOX News, multiple newspapers all took part in it on the same day, 20120525. And Brett Kimberlin and crew didn’t take it lying down. No, Brett Kimberlin and crew continued with their intimidation tactics, as if those tactics wouldn’t be publicized for all the world to see.

Yes, Kimberlin’s old tactics, upon which he depended for ever so long, are now doing the exact opposite of what he desired. They’re shining more light on the evil that is Brett Kimberlin. And they’re showing that Kimberlin and crew are more than willing to use every intimidation tactic possible, “legal” or otherwise.

While there are multiple Liberal groups or outfits who are busily covering for Kimberlin or helping Kimberlin or hiding the truth because they think it is a Right v Left thing, it is not any of the sort. It’s a Right v Wrong thing. Seth Allen is a Socialist. Whether he admits it or no, he’s a Socialist. (And I expect that he’d admit so to some extent.) Politically speaking, Seth Allen is as wrong as anyone can be. But our Founding Documents, the US Constitution and US Declaration of Independence (found in my sidebar) give him the absolute right to speak his opinion and to speak out about Truth and facts and histo-facts. And Seth Allen did just that in his reporting on the criminality that is Brett Kimberlin. And Kimberlin viciously, maliciously, frivolously sued Seth Allen for telling the truth about Kimberlin. And worked to intimidate and harass Allen while falsely accusing Allen of intimidating him.

That’s how Kimberlin and crew work. It doesn’t matter if you’re a staunch Conservative (like me) or a downright Socialist (like Seth Allen). All that matters is making sure you don’t tell anyone the truth about Brett Kimberlin or his crew. So, no, this isn’t a Right v Left issue. I’m supporting a Socialist against Kimberlin. A Socialist. And Socialism is a cancer on society. I’m supporting a Socialist against Brett Kimberlin. It’s a Right v Wrong issue and not a Right v Left issue.

And, as I said, Brett Kimberlin and crew has continued, post-25MAY2012 blog-o-lanche, with their intimidation tactics.

As Aaron Worthing has very carefully shown:

 

Brett Kimberlin’s “Non-Political Charity” Tries to Intimidate Its Critics

 
First, if you are wondering why this blog is focusing on the Brett Kimberlin story, which has erupted in the last few weeks (triggered by coming out with my Blockbuster Post on how a man tried to frame me for a crime), I suggest you start here.  Bluntly, if you had been through what I had been through, you would focus on him, too.
 
So yesterday we had an EverybodyBlog About Brett Kimberlin day and I was profoundly moved at how well things went.  People keep thanking me, but they have it all wrong.  I have to thank them.  They have seen the what Brett Kimberlin and did to Patterico and I, yet hundreds of bloggers and thousands of twitterers and who knows how many Facebookers, etc. all participated, knowing it could happen to them.  It’s not brave to run into a minefield unawares; it is brave to run into it knowing it is a minefield.  And so the praise belongs to those people, not me.
 
And just this morning, we get to see more of Brett Kimberlin’s intimidation in real time.  At the Justice Through Music website (anonymized link), you get this lovely entry (in its entirety):
 
Thanks For All of Your Support!
 
By CR
 
May 25, 2012 – We want to thank all of you for your tremendous support this week.  Keep those donations flooding in so that those opposed to human rights and progressive values will see that their malicious attacks on youth, women, activists, Muslims, and the 99% will not be tolerated in our beloved democracy.  Please note that we are working closely with both state and federal law enforcement officials and have given them lists of all those who make inappropriate statements or contacts.  Again, thank you so much for all the donations.  We feel like Planned Parenthood after the attack on them.
 
Remember folks, in Brett Kimberlin’s language, criticism is an “attack.”  It’s always an attack.  So when he says that “attacks on youth, women, activists, Muslims, and the 99% will not be tolerated” he means that criticism of those groups will not be tolerated.  Even though in fact under the principle of Freedom of Expression, it must be tolerated, even if it is morally wrong (such as Hustler’s denigration of S. E. Cupp–it’s immoral but clearly legal under the First Amendment).
 

Second he wants you to know that they are working closely with state and federal law enforcement and they are giving a list to them of anyone who makes “inappropriate statements or contacts.”

 
Now of course any violence or threat of violence against them is wrong.  It is Brett Kimberlin who has resorted to violence and other forms of unlawful intimidation to get what he wants.  We are not going to stoop to that level.  We are not even going to joke about hurting him.  And I am not going to give out his personal information, like his address, his phone number or his email address.  I have indeed endeavored to redact that information from the hundreds of pages of documents I have published online.  I do not want to see him physically harmed.
 
So if anyone has been threatening harm to Mr. Kimberlin, his charities or anyone else, not only should the persons doing the threatening stop doing so, but they have the right to report such threats to the appropriate authorities.  But do you think they are going to limit this to just genuine threats?  Especially given that he has already alleged in court documents that my call for justice was some kind of violent threat.  No, I think that he is threatening to report anything you say that is negative against Brett Kimberlin or his charities, even if they are true.  In my opinion, it is thuggish intimidation in real time.
 
And I know you won’t be cowed by it.
 
—————————————
 
And let’s notice a few other things, too.  First, in my opinion with any Kimberlin outfit, their claims to be working with authorities is more than likely bluster—although perhaps some journalists would be interested in verifying those claims.  Surely a spokesperson for Justice Through Music would be willing to name the officials they have been speaking with so that we can follow up with those officials?  Just a thought.
 
And of course their bluster about donations pouring in seems unlikely.  It is important to note that no significant voice has risen up to defend Brett Kimberlin except for one stalkerish site that is run by NOT BRETT KIMBERLIN—as Stacy McCain is wont to call him.  Indeed given that he repeatedly claimed that Seth Allen blogging about him had cost his charities donations, it seems unlikely that this high profile, highly factual exposition in major blogs and even some newspapers, it seems unlikely that the result would be increased donations.
 
—————————————
 
My wife and I have lost our jobs due to the harassment of convicted terrorist Brett Kimberlin, including an attempt to get us killed and to frame me for a crime carrying a sentence of up to ten years.  I know that claim sound fantastic, but if you read starting here, you will see absolute proof of these claims using documentary and video evidence.  If you would like to donate and help my wife and I in this time of need, please go to this donation page.  And thank you.

Kimberlin’s Infamy Goes International #BrettKimberlin

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/05/28

For those of you who are still in the dark about the convicted criminal Brett Kimberlin (all 3 of you), Kimberlin was found guilty of 33 felonies in 1981, and more felonies prior to 1981. He was convicted of being the Speedway Bomber, forgery in forging Department of Defense documents to get the bomb-making materials to set off the bombs that terrorized the city of Speedway, Indiana, drug-running, perjury, and much, much more. He is suspected to have been involved in sexual abuse of a minor, the murder of the minor’s grandmother in order to continue his sexual abuse of a minor. It is believed he became the Speedway Bomber to distract the local law enforcement from the murder of that grandmother. And much, much more.

Lately, he has been involved in intimidation of multiple bloggers who were shining the light on exactly who Brett Kimberlin is, via use of malicious and frivolous lawsuits, harassment campaigns, threatening the health and safety of spouses and children of those who exposed him, threatening the workplaces of those who exposed him, and much, much more. A stroll through Truth Before Dishonor will provide multiple articles discussing Kimberlin and his criminal past and his criminal present. A stroll through the internet will provide much more information on Brett Kimberlin.

And it’s not only American bloggers who are now talking about him, exposing him. FOX News and American Talk Radio is talking about him. And even Australian bloggers are talking about him. Yes, despite his intimidation tactics (both “legal” and illegal), his criminal life is becoming well-known, even outside the US.

You can run (from yourself), Brett Kimberlin, but you cannot hide. Not anymore.

And you didn’t get anything for it.

Do you want to know a sure-fire way to get the attention of the Federal Government? Let me explain how to do that, and you don’t even have to write them a letter and hope they read it.

Assassination, attack, domestic security, drill, exercise, cops, law enforcement, authorities, disaster assistance.

Disaster management, DNDO (Domestic Nuclear Detection Office), national preparedness, mitigation, prevention, response.

Recovery, dirty bomb, emergency management, emergency response, first responder, homeland security, maritime domain awareness (MDA).

National preparedness initiative, militia, shooting, shots fired, evacuation, deaths, hostage, explosion (explosive).

Police, disaster medical assistance team (DMAT), gangs, national security, state of emergency, security, breach.

Threat, standoff, SWAT, screening, lockdown, bomb (squad or threat), crash, looting, riot, emergency landing.

Pipe bomb, incident, facility, HAZMAT, nuclear, chemical spill, suspicious package/device, toxic, national laboratory.

Amtrak, collapse, computer infrastructure, telecommunications, critical infrastructure, national infrastructure.

Metro, WMATA, airplane (and derivatives), chemical fire, subway, smart, blackout brownout, cancelled, delays.

The list is far from all-inclusive. But I just cost US taxpayers a lot of money with this particular article. Just by writing that list of words and publishing them on the internet. Because DHS is looking for those words and others.

How did this article cost taxpayers 100 grand? Granted, that line was a hook, but think about how many redundant times this article just got flagged by DHS computers and how many different people in how many different agencies had to check it out, due to the redundant nature of the hits. How many man hours got spent dealing with this one little article alone.

Do you feel safer yet?

I WILL NEVER, EVER, EVER! BUY ANYTHING FROM PEP BOYS, EVER AGAIN!!!

Posted by Dana Pico on 2012/05/26

I noted, in this footnote, that I would be taking my truck to Pep Boys for two new steering tires and a front-end alignment. I called then around 0845 and set an appointment for 1100; I had to work this morning, and didn’t think I could get there much earlier than that. Setting an appointment is something that Pep Boys offers, and you can do so online, so this was not something some low-level clown did over the phone for which he had no authority.

I arrived at the Pep Boys at 1901 MacArthur Road in Whitehall, Pennsylvania at about 1040, well before my appointment; I was not late. I went to the service desk and checked in, noting that I had an appointment for 1100.

1100 arrived, and they hadn’t put my truck into the service bay. While I am not a patient person, I was certainly willing to cut them a break on fifteen minutes or so.

At 1130, they had not pulled my truck into the service bay, and there was no empty bay. By this time, I was starting to get annoyed.

At noon, they had still not pulled my truck into the service bay. Now, I was getting seriously annoyed. At 1215, I got up and walked/stalked over to the service desk and the gentleman guy who had checked me in said, “They’re pulling in into the bay now.”

I walked outside. No, they were not pulling my truck into the service bay, and all of the bays were still full, though it did look like they were finishing up on a couple of vehicles. At 1225, 85 minutes after my appointment was scheduled, they pulled a car out and came for my truck.

Now, when I had set the appointment, I specifically asked how long it would take, and was told about 1½ hours. I went back to the waiting area, with its uncomfortable chairs and dearth of reading material about anything other than cars. At some point over an hour later, I went outside and looked, and there was my truck, outside. I thought it was done. WRONG! They had to pull it into another service bay to do the wheel alignment . . . and that bay was still occupied.

In the end, my 1½ hour service appointment, set for 1100, finished at 1430. And I will tell you, right now, that I will never go back to Pep Boys, I will not buy so much as a valve stem cap from them ever again, and I urge everyone who reads this to never, ever, ever! give Pep Boys any of your business, ever again.

Teresa, I Like Your Style (Brett Kimberlin Related)

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/05/26

What you say is true – this isn’t a “left” or “right” issue. These are truly sick individuals that neither side wants to claim.

I’m sorry that all of this has happened to you and to so many others in the blogosphere. Please know that there are lots of people who have got your back. If you need anything, PLEASE let us know.

We may be a bunch of pajama-wearing knuckle-draggers, but these people need to know that now they are messing with the WHOLE trailer park….

My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. We’ve got your back –

I definitely like your style, Teresa. It’s mocking and humorous without detracting from the seriousness of the situation.

We are Breitbart.

National Write About Brett Kimberlin Day

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/05/25

Lee Stranahan suggested everyone should blog about Brett Kimberlin, and the reasons for such suggestion should be very clear to regular readers of Truth Before Dishonor (or the vast Conservative blogosphere, for that matter). Last I knew, Lee Stranahan was still a Liberal journalist (but one with integrity). Seth Allen is, as far as I am concerned, a Socialist. But, along with the Conservosphere, Lee Stranahan and Seth Allen have been very willing to shine the light on the dirtball known as Brett Kimberlin. And Brett Kimberlin and crew have used terrifying intimidation tactics against Seth. So, despite the fact that the rightosphere is blowing up with stories about Brett Kimberlin and his “crew” while the leftosphere is not as excited about it, this is not a political “right vs left” issue, but rather, a “right vs wrong” issue. In fact, we on the Right have been rather outspoken in our desire to have our political foes on the Left also write about Brett Kimberlin. Solidarity in the pursuit of a common enemy, as it were.

This is my site. Other authors writing articles on Truth Before Dishonor are doing so because I invited them to be authors on my site. They have the freedom to write about anything they choose, from any position they choose. And sometimes they write from positions contrary to mine and contrary to the official Truth Before Dishonor position (since that position is my position). I write articles elsewhere, but those sites are not mine. They belong to other people. And I strongly advise you to read the below article in its entirety to understand why I do not write about Brett Kimberlin on those other sites. (Here’s a hint: threats against family members (including minor children) of unmet people because someone those unmet people respect spoke the truth about Kimberlin.)

It is important to note that several people who have shown the Light of Truth on Brett Kimberlin has faced malicious and frivolous lawsuits from Brett Kimberlin. They have been threatened and intimidated, their families have been threatened and intimidated, their places of employment have been threatened and intimidated. People have lost their jobs because they spoke the truth about Brett Kimberlin, and those employers were fearful of a convicted bomber showing up at the place of employment. Anonymous bloggers have been outed, their full names, their home addresses, their photos, photos of their homes, information on their families, have all been broadcast over the internet as a result of telling the truth about Brett Kimberlin, the convicted bomber, the convicted perjurer, who was sentenced to 50 years in prison in the 1980s and is free today to harass and intimidate and threaten people who tell the truth about him.

And that, in a direct but roundabout way, is the reason for today being National Write About Brett Kimberlin Day. It might be easy to put out a single brush fire through legal and illegal means. But it is impossible to put out 1,000 burshfires that erupt in a single day, whether by legal or by illegal means. And I allege Kimberlin and his “crew” abuse the former and use the latter.

Patterico, a target of Kimberlin and “crew”, for”special treatment”, has written a very extensive and very explosive article for this national day. And Patterico has specifically said that very extensive article was a very brief “tip of the iceberg” summary, and that the entire material would take weeks to read. I very strongly recommend you read his article. In fact, I have reproduced his article below the fold. (See my permissions declaration at the end of this article.) I also encourage you to read his article on his site, linked above, and read the comment section. And, if you’re a person of courage and Honor, consider writing your own truthful articles about Brett Kimberlin and “crew”.

And now, on to the explosive news about Brett Kimberlin, the proprietor of BradBlog, a well-known Liberal political activist, and others!

How Brett Kimberlin Tried to Frame Me for a Crime—Introduction

Dear reader, I have been holding back a story from you for over four months.  A crime was committed against me—indeed, several have been—but I was afraid to publicize it, because it would have the effect of fully and completely “outing” me.
Well, today I break that silence, starting with my name.  It’s Walker.  As in Aaron Walker, not “Aaron Worthing” as you have known me for now over two years.
And I am going to tell you about how Brett Kimberlin attempted to frame me for a crime.  He attempted to make authorities in Maryland believe that on January 9, 2012, as we were both exiting a courtroom, I essentially beat him up.  You will see him claim that I “decked” him, that the sheriff’s deputies had to separate me from him, that I kept coming at him and the deputies had to restrain me.
And then you will see video of the incident and realize that all of this is a lie.  I will even show you a second video that contrasts Kimberlin’s words with the video footage.  That is right, you are not going to have to believe my word.  You will only have to believe your eyes.
This is a long post, but that is because there is a lot to tell.  And we do have to start with some background.

How Brett Kimberlin Tried to Frame Me for a Crime—Part 1: Background.

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/05/24

Originally published by Aaron Worthing.

(This article has multiple scribd applications, so it would be advisable to see the original article, linked above.)

[This post is part of a larger series of posts.  See here for a fuller explanation.]
Previously: Introduction.
Even if you have been following the posts in what I am calling “The Kimberlin Saga,” there are some things I didn’t share and in any case it helps to put it all in one place.  Of course if you want to go back and read all the posts in this “saga,” I suggest you use this link. But I am going to take a few minutes to give you the major points of what happened before.  And I am going to write this as if you know nothing about me, because hopefully I will be attracting many new eyeballs with this post.
So let’s start with me.  Now that you know my real name, who is this Aaron Walker guy?  What secrets are revealed now that I have removed my mask?  Am I in a secret conspiracy with the Chamber of Commerce, the late Andrew Breitbart, and/or the Freemasons?
Actually no.  In truth, “Aaron Walker” is really kind of a nobody.  The reality is that Aaron Worthing, my online alter ego, has had a greater impact on the world than Aaron Walker.  Aaron Walker is simply a lawyer of reasonable professional accomplishment, but not exactly a superstar, either, who has a hobby on the side of blogging under the pseudonym “A.W.” and later “Aaron Worthing” (always making it clear that both were the same person).
As Aaron Worthing, I have had a pretty good run as a blogger.  I have blogged, commented, etc. on the internet almost continuously for about ten years, but let’s keep it to the last few years.  A few years ago, I created this site “Allergic to Bull.”  I also participated in the free-speech, anti-terrorism protest called Everybody Draw Mohammed Day and even created a website dedicated to it, called “Everyone Draw Mohammed.”  I talked about my participation in that movement, here and here.  And this Wikipedia article on the movement as a whole is fair and mainly accurate as of this writing (Wikipedia articles are notorious for being “strategically edited” by people with an agenda).
In October of 2010, I was contacted by J. Patrick Frey, a.k.a. “Patterico” of Patterico’s Pontifications.  Patrick is a Deputy District Attorney in Los Angeles in the hard core gang unit.  I think it is fair to say that we were acquaintances who mutually admired each other’s writing at that time, but we were not yet friends.  But he was about to go on a vacation for two weeks and he needed someone to serve as guest blogger while he was gone, to keep his regular readers happy.  So he honored me by asking me to do this for him, and I happily agreed.

And then when he got back he told me that, gosh, his workload was murder and could I stay on a guest blogger and pick up the slack?  So I did, and two weeks ended up being a little over a year.  But Patrick always intended it to be a temporary thing and so in December of 2011, he asked me to leave and I won’t say I don’t miss it, but I think I was very gracious about it.  And as I was leaving I revealed publicly that Aaron Worthing was a pseudonym, in a post.

Now one thing that was going on from the beginning of my tenure at Patterico’s Pontifications in the background was the Brett Kimberlin story.  Patrick published a couple posts about him.  The first post he wrote was this one, supplementing a post at Breitbart’s site by Mandy Nagy.  Kimberlin then threatened to sue both of them, mentioned in posts here and here.  Patrick challenged Kimberlin to name one falsehood in his post; Kimberlin couldn’t.  But that didn’t stop him from making this threat: “I have filed over a hundred lawsuits and another one will be no sweat for me. On the other hand, it will cost you a lot of time and money[.]”
But for me I just didn’t find the story very interesting.  Don’t take that as criticism of Patrick.  What makes a story interesting to a blogger is a matter of the very particular preferences of each blogger.  Patrick found something fascinating about it, but in my mind it was “ho-hum, another domestic terrorist accepted by liberals despite his crimes.”  Horrifying, yes, but not quite shocking anymore.  It was like Bill Ayers all over again.  It was hard to see the significance of it.
Of course Brett Kimberlin is an awful human being.  I realized that even before we truly crossed paths, and I am only more convinced of this today.  He is a convicted terrorist (bomber, specifically), known as the Speedway Bomber.  Kimberlin v. White, 7 F.3d 527 (6th Cir. 1993).  He earned that title by settling off eight bombs in six days in the community of Speedway, Indiana.  Here’s what the Sixth Circuit wrote about him:
Kimberlin was convicted as the so-called “Speedway Bomber,” who terrorized the city of Speedway, Indiana, by detonating a series of explosives in early September 1978. In the worst incident, Kimberlin placed one of his bombs in a gym bag, and left it in a parking lot outside Speedway High School. Carl DeLong was leaving the high school football game with his wife when he attempted to pick up the bag and it exploded. The blast tore off his lower right leg and two fingers, and embedded bomb fragments in his wife’s leg. He was hospitalized for six weeks, during which he was forced to undergo nine operations to complete the amputation of his leg, reattach two fingers, repair damage to his inner ear, and remove bomb fragments from his stomach, chest, and arm. In February 1983, he committed suicide.
Later in a civil suit Kimberlin was found to be liable for Carl DeLong’s death and the injuries to the widow DeLong. Kimberlin v. DeLong, 619 N.E.2d 46 (Ind. 1993).
Kimberlin was indeed convicted of thirty three offenses related to those bombings.  Besides the more obvious bombing-related counts, he was convicted of illegal use of a Department of Defense insignia, and illegal use of the Presidential Seal.  That might seem puzzling until you realize that the materials Kimberlin used to build his bombs couldn’t exactly be bought at the local Piggly Wiggly.  They are highly regulated explosive substances.  So he had to forge documents, with Presidential Seals and Department of Defense insignias, to obtain the materials.  So it is right to say he is a convicted document forger.  That will become important later.
By the way, you might also ask why he committed his spree of domestic terrorism.  Well, that was never proven, but according to the Indianapolis Star and Mark Singer, in his book Citizen K: The Deeply Weird American Journey of Brett Kimberlin, the police had a theory.  It started with a young woman named Jessica Barton, the daughter of Sandi Barton and the granddaughter of Julia Scyphers.  Kimberlin had a relationship—he claims it was platonic—with Sandi Barton and through her, he came in contact with this young girl.  How young?  When they first became acquainted Jessica was ten years old and Kimberlin was twice her age.  (Citizen K, page 76.)  And there is this passage from Singer’s book:
For three consecutive summers, 1974 through 1976, they  took vacations of a week or longer in Disney World, Mexico, and Hawaii.  Sandi couldn’t get time off from work, so on these summer trips it was just the two of them-Brett and Jessica.
Eyebrows levitated. A drug-dealing colleague had memories of conversations with Kimberlin that struck him as odd: “We’d see a girl who was pubescent or prepubescent, and Brett would get this smilie and say, ‘Hey, what do you think? Isn’t she great?’ It made me very uncomfortable.”  Another recalled Kimberlin introducing Jessica as “my girlfriend,” and if irony was intended, it was too subtle to register.  To a coworker at IU-PUI, Sandi confided that Kimberlin was “grooming Jessica to be his wife.” To another, Sandi explained that though Kimberlin’s relationship with Jessica was chaste, he intended “to wait for her and would marry her.”
(Page 78.)  So Julia Scyphers—who you remember is Jessica Barton’s grandmother—allegedly became concerned about this relationship and was very vocal in her concern.  Kimberlin claims there was no such conflict with Scyphers, but according to Singer and the Indianapolis Star, this was contradicted by the statements of others, such as that of Judith Johnson, an employee of the management company that serviced the Barton family’s apartment.  She reported to the police that Scyphers tried to have the locks changed—possibly to lock Kimberlin out—and someone prevented the maintenance man from changing the cylander (this might have been Sandi Barton, Julia’s daughter and Jessica’s mother).  Ms. Johnson then reported this encounter afterward:
Brett C. Kimberlin came to our office. He came into my office and closed the door, talked very low, was nervous, introduced himself as living with Sandra Barton, 68 POC #A, and stated he had lived there for a good many years. He told me that his girlfriend’s mother was harassing them, that she hated him and their situation (living there with her daughter and grandchildren) … he said that Mrs. Barton’s mother was insane and that he wanted them to get away from her but that Mrs. Barton was afraid of her mother and would not stand up to her.
(Emphasis added, page 81.)  So then next thing you know, Julia Scyphers was murdered:
On July 29, 1978, Speedway resident Julia Scyphers, 65, answered a knock at her door. A man she didn’t know was standing on her stoop asking about items she’d recently tried to sell at a yard sale. She let him into the garage to look at the items and he shot her in the head.
Mrs. Scyphers’ husband, Fred, 68, heard the bang and came out in time to see a car pulling out of the driveway. He would later tell police he’d gotten a glimpse of the man who’d come to the door.
When police began looking for a motive in the Scyphers slaying, they found there’d been a recent family clash. Julia Scyphers’ daughter, Sandra Barton, had become involved with a man who seemed to Mrs. Scyphers to be inordinately close to one of Barton’s young daughters. Mrs. Scyphers told friends she was so concerned that she’d arranged for both of her granddaughters to come live with her. Whether or not Mrs. Scyphers’ fears were correct (no charges were ever filed to that effect), this incident led investigators to start looking at Brett C. Kimberlin.
(Source.)  So according to Singer and the Indianapolis Star, the police’s theory went like this (this whole paragraph is based on their claims): Kimberlin starts having this questionable relationship with the very young Jessica Barton.  Of course one can only speculate whether anyone’s suspicions were valid, but according to witnesses (besides Kimberlin who denies this) Julia Scyphers suspected something was seriously wrong and was very vocal about it.  Then someone gunned Scyphers down, and a lead suspect was a Kimberlin associate.  According to Singer and the Star, the police suspected this was a murder-for-hire ordered by Kimberlin himself.  Mind you, none of this could ever be proven, but it was what the police suspected, according to those sources.  And shortly after that, the Speedway bombings began—the police believing that these bombings were done to distract from their Scyphers investigation—all according to Singer and the Star.
Which I admit makes very little sense.  I mean if you believe the theory attributed by Singer and the Star to the police, he tries to get away with a crime by… committing other crimes?  But that hits on an important point.  As I have said to several people when explaining this, it is useless to try to make sense of his conduct.  All one can do is recognize the conduct he has engaged in.  But I believe that explaining the workings of his mind in a way that makes sense is impossible—because I believe that he does not think like a rational person.  At least that is my opinion.  Feel free to draw your own conclusions.
Also, these were not the only crimes he was convicted of (or suspected of).  He was also convicted of conspiracy to distribute 10,000 pounds of marijuana.  And he was convicted of perjury.
Nor did his immoral behavior end there.  As noted above, he was found liable for the death of Carl DeLong and for the injuries to the widow DeLong, and as a result of that civil suit against him he owed her over a million dollars.  He then started to come into money, particularly as the money from Citizen K started to roll in.  After all, the book was written under contract with Singer, so that he got some money from that (even though it was far from the flattering portrayal that Kimberlin had probably hoped for).  So the DeLong widow attempted to take some of those profits as part of an effort to collect on her debt.  The parole board later found that Kimberlin had done just about everything he could to prevent the widow Delong from collecting her debt and indeed found his conduct to be so deplorable that they revoked his parole—an extraordinary action for a parole board to take.  This passage from case of Kimberlin v. Dewalt, 12 F.Supp. 2d (D. Maryland 1998) is particularly damning:
The [parole] examiner found that petitioner [Kimberlin] used “deceitful maneuvers to hide his ability to pay” and that his “relatives and friends are obviously acting to help him by filing claims and liens to protect his money and property from being available to satisfy the victim’s judgment.” The examiner further found that the “evidence against [petitioner] was provided by the subject himself,” and that at no time did petitioner “indicate any concern or empathy for the victim.” Finally, the examiner found that petitioner’s settlement offers were not undertaken in good faith; concluded that petitioner had resisted parole supervision by Officer Ramsburg “in every way he can,” and recommended revocation of parole with a presumptive parole date of two years… Petitioner was taken into custody at the conclusion of the hearing.
So he is not exactly a prince among men.
Anyway, throughout 2011, I was also vaguely aware that in the background that Kimberlin had sued a blogger/commenter named Seth Allen in the Montgomery County, Maryland lawsuit known as Kimberlin v. Allen (case number 339254v).  You can look it up, here.  And you can look at the complaint, here, and the amended complaint, here.  I will probably do a post in the future discussing all the dissembling going on there, but bear in mind that many of the statements attributed to Seth were not actually written by him.  For instance, Kimberlin has claimed that Seth advocated for the extermination of Jews, and if you might think this is an odd position for a person who is actually Jewish to take that would be because he didn’t actually say that.
I can also say that the complaint doesn’t appear to be sufficient as a matter of law.  But Seth ended up with a default judgment against him and on August 22 and 23, 2011, he was looking for help.  And because I kind of lived kind of close to where this was going on, he sought out my help.  The problem was that I am not an attorney in Maryland, so I couldn’t do very much for him.  But I briefly provided him a little legal advice.  Of course some of it is privileged, but I share the unprivileged part of our interactions, here.  And that was the end of it.  Or so I thought.
But Brett Kimberlin learned that I had provided Seth that brief, slight, free legal help and that was enough to make me a target of his anger.
The Maryland case went on.  There was a hearing on November 14, 2011, to determine what damages would be awarded to Kimberlin for this supposed defamation.  You can read the transcript of that hearing, here.  He was awarded the grand sum total of…  $100, and court costs, which resulted in much mockery from Patrick.  But Kimberlin was also given an injunction that commanded that Seth shall never defame Kimberlin or tortiously interfere with his business relations.  And as he is wont to do, Kimberlin very quickly decided that Seth had violated this order and demanded that Seth be held in contempt in a hearing set for January 9, 2012.
And that is when he decided to drag me into this.  In an email I have published at this site before, written just after midnight on December 15, 2011, he remarkably asked that I ask Seth to waive attorney client privilege so that I could testify against him, and if I didn’t, he would subpoena Google in order to get my information.  You can read that email, here.  And then after waiting only two business days, he filed that subpoena and a motion to compel spinning a wild conspiracy theory, which I shared with you here.  You can read a scan of the document, here.  You remember that line above where I jokingly asked, “[a]m I in a secret conspiracy with the Chamber of Commerce, the late Andrew Breitbart, and/or the Freemasons?”  Well, it isn’t entirely a joke to Brett Kimberlin.  Kimberlin has gone on record as believing that I have been “conspiring with, advising, and aiding abetting [sic] Mr. Allen for over a year regarding” Seth telling the truth about Kimberlin’s deplorable past.  Mind you, he has no proof of this, and indeed no evidence of it.  All he has is evidence of contact, between a lawyer and a guy being sued, after he was sued, which isn’t even unusual when you think about it.  And he has indicated in conversations with my counsel, Beth Kingsley, that he believes that the conspiracy includes Andrew Breitbart and/or the Chamber of Commerce, but there is no word on whether he thinks the Freemasons are involved.
And there is some debate in my circle of friends about whether he actually believes this or not.  I don’t know; I can’t say.  I do know, however, that it is what he said in that document.  But I have also learned not to trust anything that Kimberlin claims to be true.  He has no compunction about lying about easily verifiable facts as you will see.  So… who knows what he really thinks?  I can only describe his conduct.
Of course in talking to my friends I came to believe that what this really was, was a prelude to Kimberlin stalking and harassing me.  As I have shown before, Kimberlin has at least two people—Ron Brynaert and Neal Rauhauser—who at the very least have proven to be willing conduits for any information that Kimberlin wants to put out in the public sphere.  For instance, in regards to Brynaert (a former editor of Raw Story), when Seth Allen was arrested, Brynaert knew of this within twenty-four hours, even though this had not appeared in any public record at the time (see here).  When Kimberlin filed his motion to compel, Brynaert also knew of it within twenty-four hours (see here, an excerpt from Brynaert’s blog).  On December 30, 2011, Kimberlin wrote an email to my then-attorney, Beth Kingsley, accusing me of a violation of legal ethics by trying this case in the press, accusing her of having a conflict of interest because she represented the organization known as ACORN and arguing that she was responsible for my alleged ethical violations.  (See here, and my response, here).  On December 30, Mr. Brynaert suggested I was unethically trying this case in the press (see here).  On January 1, 2012, just after midnight, Brynaert alluded to the fact that my lawyer once represented ACORN (see here.)  On January 6, he suggested Ms. Kingsley was responsible for my supposedly unethical conduct (see here).
Indeed, Brynaert is only one degree of separation from Brett Kimberlin.  He has guest blogged at Brad Friedman’s “The Brad Blog” and Mr. Freidman is an admitted business partner of Mr. Kimberlin (see here).  Further, Brynaert has received emails sent by Kimberlin (see here),  and has acknowledged in a recent tweet that “I will gladly testify for @AaronWorthing if Kimberlin sues him over courthouse incident since Brett lied to me about it”—thus admitting that Kimberlin had been feeding him information about the case from the start.
Turning my attention to Neal Rauhauser, whom Kimberlin has described in court as his “associate,” he has obviously served as a conduit for information only available to Brett Kimberlin.  For instance, Rauhauser published a document on the Scribd document-sharing service (the same one I am using).  I revealed the existence of this document on this blog and he promptly made it disappear.  As I wrote at the time, “Don’t bother making it disappear, Neal, because I have already preserved it.”  And indeed I did.  You can read a copy of that document, preceded by a screenshot from the Scribd page indicating his authorship, here.  It includes numerous images of documents related to the Kimberlin v. Allen litigation, including letters addressed specifically to Brett Kimberlin.  The document also included wild accusations that Seth was being paid by one of a number of persons, including myself, to bring up Brett Kimberlin’s deplorable past.
And this crew—Brett Kimberlin, Neal Rauhauser and Ron Brynaert—had a long history of stalking and harassing others, and I expected the same to happen to me if Kimberlin got my real name.  I talk about that history to a degree here, but bluntly there are a lot of things they have done that I know about, that the victims have asked me to be silent about… for now.  Besides, would you want a convicted domestic terrorist with a grudge against you to have your name and home address?
So on December 29, I filed a motion to quash the subpoenas and an opposition to Kimberlin’s motion to compel Google to reveal my identity.  That isn’t a typo, on “subpoenas.”  By then he had also subpoenaed Comcast, but did so without informing me—I discovered it by searching the Maryland Judiciary Case Search website on my own.  This is a regular pattern with several people reporting that when he was required to serve documents on others, he often would fail to do so and then claim he had.
In any case, my response—which you can read, here—argued that Kimberlin was abusing the discovery process in an attempt to stalk and harass me.  It also argued that the underlying injunction that he was seeking to enforce should be dismissed in any case because it was obtained in significant part by false testimony.  I brought three examples of his dishonest statements to the court’s attention, but here is the most easily proven example.
Q [Seth Allen] Were you released and then sent back to prison for a parole violation, for failure to pay compensation to the, Ms. Delong (phonetic sp.), the wife of Carl Delong, who took his own life after those bombs —
A [Brett Kimberlin] No.
Q — tore up half his body?
A No, I wasn’t.
I have linked it before, but you can read the transcript, here.  That would be on Page 40, lines 12-18.  And of course what he said was not true: he had his parole revoked for precisely that reason, as you can read, here.  I also said in my response that the court should consider reporting Kimberlin to the appropriate authorities for charges of perjury.
Now for reasons more complicated than they are interesting (but if you are curious, you can read up, here), I was essentially forced to retain a lawyer pro bono for a small procedural matter in relation to the suit named Beth Kingsley.  She is the ACORN lawyer that Brynaert mentioned earlier.  And Brett Kimberlin began to call and email her.  It started with veiled threats to my lawyer’s livelihood, and to file frivolous ethics charges against her and I in an email I have already shared with you.  How frivolous were they?  So much so that he claimed I was violating a rule that didn’t exist.  Yes, really.
Then he proposed a settlement.  Normally, the privacy of settlement negotiations should be respected, but what he wrote in this is in fact key evidence of his intent to frame me, so I think I am justified in sharing this.  (And there is no rule against sharing it in public—it’s just sort of a cultural norm.)  You see on that date, January 3, 2012, I had never met the man.  I had never spoken to him, emailed him or indeed contacted him by any means whatsoever.  And yet already on that date he was talking about filing criminal charges against me.  Here’s what he said he was going to offer me—a not-so-veiled threat:
Please take this letter as an offer to settle issues between me and your client known as Aaron Worthing.  This settlement will allow Mr. Worthing to maintain his anonymity.
1.         I will withdraw my subpoenas for Comcast and Google to identify Mr. Worthing filed in Kimberlin v. Allen.
2.         I will forgo any future litigation concerning Mr. Worthing, including bar complaints, sanctions, civil suits, criminal complaints, peace orders and other administrative actions.
3.         I will not make any public statements about Mr. Worthing, and will not ask others to make any public statements or posts on the Internet about him.
4.         I will not make any future attempt to identify Mr. Worthing in any manner.
(Emphasis added.)  Here is an embedded copy of that offer:
So he was already talking about criminal complaints and peace orders against me, when we had never even met, when he had no just cause to do such a thing.
And notice something else, here.  All of this was started with him claiming that he wanted my testimony.  But there was no attempt to obtain that testimony in that offer.  Indeed, it was all about shutting me up—getting me to withdraw my response and to take down my truthful postings about him on the internet.  Oh, and apologizing and saying I should leave him alone—as though he hadn’t come after me first.  I mean, read the archives of this site.  Before Kimberlin came after me, I only mentioned him in a post once, and it was in response to his conduit Ron Brynaert attacking me for my slight representation of Seth.  This is therefore the sum total of what I had written about Brett Kimberlin before he came after me:
Brynaert is almost certainly referring to [Kimberlin v. Allen], involving the alleged defamation of Brett Kimberlin, the convicted terrorist known as the Speedway Bomber.  I suppose next he will assert that I have defamed bin Laden.  Seriously, defamation is a cause of action for damage to reputation; does Kimberlin even have a public reputation capable of being damaged?
Everything else I had written about Kimberlin was in response to his thuggish behavior.  But according to him, I was the supposed stalker.
Now I did want to try to get out of the immediate situation relatively unscathed so I did authorize my attorney to make a counter offer.  So as we were considering how we would respond, Kimberlin sent my attorney these emails:
Because I have decided to redact his email address, it is sometimes unclear who is the sender or recipient in that copy.  However, in each case, it is an email exchange between Beth Kingsley and Brett Kimberlin, ultimately being forwarded to me.  Notice how his sole focus is silencing me, not obtaining my testimony.
So we made a counter offer and let a few days go by.  On January 5, according to his own documents, he made up his mind to reject the offer.  He filed a motion to withdraw the subpoenas.  Here’s a copy of it, with only my birthdate, my address, my then-current employer, and my employer’s address redacted.  Please take the time to read the whole thing and see the amount of personal information he chose to put into this document:
Remember folks, according to Brett Kimberlin, I am the stalker.  And yet he decided to put this “stalkerish” amount of information into this public document.
On the same day, he sent a letter to the FBI, the Virginia State Police, the Fairfax County Police and the Prince William County Police (I lived in Prince William but worked in Fairfax).  This is a copy of that letter, with the same information redacted.
Notice that he wrote that “there exists the very real probability that Mr. Walker could be subjected to serious harm or death now that his identity has been exposed.”  Since he was the one who exposed my identity on that date, and indeed at that time, he was the only person exposing my identity, he was confessing to having engaged in a course of conduct that he believed could get me killed.
But of course I didn’t know he had filed that.  So he chose to send me a copy of it, by email on January 7, a Saturday morning.  I immediately informed my work about the situation, fully expecting the harassment my friends had suffered to arrive at their doorstep and realizing that at this point in time they had a right to know.  And then I planned to come to the contempt hearing January 9, 2012—the following Monday.
And that brings us to the day of what I have since referred to as the January 9, 2012 incident.

How Brett Kimberlin Tried to Frame Me for a Crime—Part 2: The January 9, 2012 Hearing.

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/05/24

Originally published by Aaron Worthing.

[This post is part of a larger series of posts.  See here for a fuller explanation.]
So I went to the Montgomery County, Maryland Circuit Court on that morning to address Mr. Kimberlin’s blatantly improper Motion to Withdraw.  I hoped to ask for the document to be sealed and for Kimberlin to be sanctioned.  I will mostly let the transcript of that day speak for itself, but obviously there are things that do not appear in it, so I will supplement it with my commentary occasionally.  For starters, when the court case was called, I immediately stood up at the same time as Kimberlin and came forward about a step behind him.
THE COURT: Civil 339254, Kimberlin versus Seth Allen. And you are?
MR. KIMBERLIN: I’m Brett Kimberlin.
THE COURT: All right.
MR. WALKER: My name is Aaron Walker. I am the blogger known as Aaron Worthing. And I have an emergency motion against Mr. Kimberlin for his gross misconduct in this case, and I’d like to be heard. I know it’s unusual.
THE COURT: It’s not here on your proceeding.
MR. WALKER: I understand, Your Honor.
THE COURT: So I’m not going to hear it.
MR. WALKER: Your Honor, he filed an improper motion before this Court on Friday. I had no notice until Saturday morning that he had done that. He has, in a blatant attempt to stalk and oppress me, he has put —
THE COURT: Hold it. Hold it.
MR. WALKER: Yes. I’m sorry.
THE COURT: First off, you don’t have any right to be saying anything.
Let me break in.  At this point, Kimberlin burst out laughing, so the next sentence is directed at him:
THE COURT: And you don’t have a right to be laughing.  There’s a motion to withdraw as moot plaintiff’s motion to compel seeking identity of Aaron Worthing.
MR. KIMBERLIN: Yes.
THE COURT: And then there’s a, plaintiff’s response to Aaron Worthing’s motion to quash. And you’re Mr. Worthing?
MR. WALKER: Well, I’m Aaron Walker, and I blog as Mr. Worthing, that’s correct.
THE COURT: Are you requiring that he come to court today?
MR. KIMBERLIN: Judge, initially I, he’s an anonymous blogger who’s been involved with the stalker.
Notice in Kimberlin’s mind it somehow reflects on the lawyer to be “involved with” an alleged “stalker,” meaning Seth Allen.  Kimberlin thinks that Seth Allen is so self-evidently evil that he doesn’t deserve even the slight legal help I gave him.  On the other hand, do you think Kimberlin has a problem with all the lawyers who represented him, a convicted domestic terrorist and drug dealer?
THE COURT: But why are you, why is he here?
MR. KIMBERLIN: And so, I didn’t ask him to be here.  He just foisted himself on this hearing.
THE COURT: Well, he says he’s been summonsed.
MR. KIMBERLIN: No.
MR. WALKER: Well, no, no, no.
MR. KIMBERLIN: He wasn’t summonsed.
MR. WALKER: If I may explain, Your Honor.
THE COURT: All right.
MR. WALKER: He did actually initially ask me to testify today in his initial correspondence with me. If he’s not interested in my testimony today, then I would ask why he has subpoenaed this Court in order to obtain my identity.
MR. KIMBERLIN: I withdrew that.
THE COURT: It’s been withdrawn.
MR. WALKER: Yes. But I understand, but why did he do that in the first place?
THE COURT: Well, it’s been withdrawn, so it’s, he says it’s withdrawn. It’s moot.
MR. WALKER: But Your Honor, if you look at what he has filed today, all he had to do in order to file that motion was to tell the Court that he obtained my information. He did not have to even say my name. Instead, in this public document now, he has put my name, he has put my home address, he has put my birth date, he has put the high school I went to. He put the fact that I dropped out of high school in this. He put the fact that I received a GED. He put the fact that I went to the University of North Texas. He went and put in the fact that I sued the law school admissions council. He put in the fact that I was admitted to Yale Law School and graduated in the class of 2002. He put down my current job with my current employer and their address as well.  His intent in doing this was so that it becomes a public record so that him and his friends can put this out into the public so they can stalk and harass me. It is plain on the face of this. And I would ask Your Honor to swear him in and ask why he put all this unnecessary information in this, in this filing.
THE COURT: Well, it’s been withdrawn as moot.
MR. WALKER: Well, I’m talking about the motion to withdraw itself.
THE COURT: Well, it’s done. It’s no longer in effect.
MR. WALKER: But this is a public document. And his friends will then take this public document, his motion to withdraw as moved, and they will put it out, and then put out all of my information.
At some point in all of this—and I think it was about now—I saw the judge look through the file and read.  I believe he was looking at the document itself, and I could be wrong, but I believe I heard him say, under his breath: “What the…?”  And after he was done looking, I sensed a shift in his demeanor.
THE COURT: Are you asking that this be sealed?
MR. WALKER: I would like this to be sealed. I would like –
THE COURT: Any objection to sealing it, Mr. Kimberlin?
MR. KIMBERLIN: Judge, this –
THE COURT: Say yes or no.
Now let me pause here and ask you a question, dear reader.  Let’s imagine that Kimberlin cared about my safety.  Let’s imagine that he didn’t want to create “the very real probability that Mr. Walker could be subjected to serious harm or death” as he said in that letter to law enforcement.  Then wouldn’t he jump at the chance to seal it?  If he was acting in good faith, wouldn’t he happily put it under seal?
So why exactly does he object to this?
MR. KIMBERLIN: Yes, I object.
THE COURT: Why?
MR. KIMBERLIN: Why?
THE COURT: Yes, why. Why should all of this be a matter of public record?
MR. KIMBERLIN: This man has engaged in stalking with the defendant in this case.
THE COURT: Well, there’s no order against him in this case.
MR. KIMBERLIN: No, there’s no order against him.  But he –
THE COURT: So why is he even a part of this case?
MR. KIMBERLIN: He did it anonymously. Initially, I wanted to call him as a witness. And then when I filed the motions to call him as a witness, he began trying the case in, on his blog. He filed every, he posted every motion on his blog. And he kept accusing me of all kinds of terrible things on his blog. And he ridiculed me. He taunted me. He threatened me. He had people posting on his blog that I was a terrorist and a pedophile and all this other stuff.  And he engaged in unethical behavior.  He said that he represented the defendant in this case as an anonymous person. He can’t, a lawyer cannot represent someone as an anonymous person. He asked to be identified. I mean, he went on his blog and said I am representing, I entered into an attorney-client privilege relationship with Seth Allen as Aaron Worthing. And he’s not even a lawyer in this jurisdiction. He lives in Virginia. He can’t represent somebody as a fake person, in a pseudonym.
You can search on this blog.  I have never threatened him, except to say that if he breaks the law I will ensure that he will face the consequences proscribed by law (which any citizen is allowed to do).  And the people “posting” he is referring to are commenters.  This blog is a one-man show.  Those who call him a “terrorist” are of course, right.  And the only commenter talking about his suspected pedophilia, was stating in his opinion that he had an inappropriate relationship with Jessica Barton, which given what I quoted to you from Singer’s book, seems like a pretty reasonable opinion to me if you credit Singer’s reportage.  As for his assertions that I have behaved unethically, I have addressed them here.
MR. KIMBERLIN: I mean, that’s — and so he put himself out there to be identified. I mean, if he’s a lawyer, fine. I have a right to determine if he’s a lawyer. He can’t say that he’s anonymous and he’s representing Seth Allen. It just, it didn’t make sense. And so I said, well, I need to find out who this guy is. If he’s saying he represents somebody in a case against me, then I need to be able to identify him. And so I identified him. And I didn’t want him to come out and say — the reason I put all that information in the document was because Mr. Worthing has called me a liar over and over and over. And I wanted to, everybody to know –
Notice that part: “I wanted… everybody to know[.]”  He was admitting that this was for the world’s consumption.
THE COURT: Why is this even in the court? This is incredible to me.
MR. KIMBERLIN: I know. It’s really incredible.
THE COURT: No. I mean, the whole thing is incredible. I’m going to, there’s a motion that was, to quash that was filed on behalf of, it was filed originally by –
MR. WALKER: If you’re looking, it’s Seth Allen, I suspect.
THE COURT: No. It was filed by Elizabeth –
MR. KIMBERLIN: Kingsley.
THE COURT: — Kingsley.
MR. KIMBERLIN: Yeah.
MR. WALKER: Oh, that would be the attorney who represented me in the past.
I had technically “fired” Ms. Kingsley that morning—not for cause, but because I was representing myself from there on in.
THE COURT: And she filed a motion to file anonymously or to file under seal.
MR. KIMBERLIN: Right.
THE COURT: And she’s filed that. And I’m going to grant the request to file this anonymously or under seal.
You can read that motion, here.  Basically it was asking the court to create a mechanism by which I could challenge Kimberlin’s attempts to out me without outing myself.  We presented the court two different alternatives, and with this action, the court basically said, just then, “go ahead, do either approach.”  Brett Kimberlin will later read much more into this decision than is actually there.
MR. KIMBERLIN: Okay.
THE COURT: And I’ll grant the request to seal the information that’s contained at Docket Entry 114, which is the motion to withdraw as moot.  [To me]  All right. Sir, that concludes your –
MR. WALKER: Actually, I would like a little more relief, if you don’t mind me taking a moment.
THE COURT: That’s it. No. I’m done. You’re done.
MR. WALKER: All right. Thank you, Your Honor.
And for the most part that was the end of my involvement in the hearing.  The transcript doesn’t quite capture how hostile the judge was to my even being there, and you know what?  I completely understand.  I think by the end he saw that I was genuinely aggrieved to a degree, but I can understand why he didn’t want me there at all.
Now there is one more part where Kimberlin was being misleading to the court and I attempted to intervene and correct the record.  Bear in mind, Seth didn’t show up for this hearing.  He lives in the Boston area on a fixed income and couldn’t afford to make the trip.  He did file motions to appear telephonically, but apparently they don’t allow that in Maryland (and let me say as a matter of constructive criticism, that this rule should change).  So no one was there to defend Seth, and so I attempted to break in to correct the record.
For instance only seconds before I attempted to intervene, Kimberlin said this:  “And, you know, he calls me all kinds of things. He calls me a terrorist. He calls me a cyber smearer. He calls me a pedophile. He calls me a perjurer.”  Kimberlin was implying that these statements were defamatory—that is untrue and harmful of his reputation.  Well, of course two of those  terms (“terrorist” and “perjurer”) were absolutely true and I was concerned that the judge didn’t know that.  A lawyer has a duty of candor toward the tribunal that I take very seriously.  So it was about then that I attempted to intervene, peacefully:
MR. WALKER: Well, Your Honor, if I may, I’m sorry to break in a second time.
THE COURT: You know, I had a sheriff up here, because I didn’t think one would be needed. I’m about to get a sheriff to escort you out of the courtroom.
MR. WALKER: I don’t understand –
THE COURT: You’re not breaking in. Sit down.
MR. WALKER: I felt a need to explain something to the Court, if I could.
And yes, that makes me look a little bad, but that is because I am here to tell you the truth, warts and all.
And that was my last involvement in the hearing at all.  But I did stick around, because I wanted to know how things went for Seth.  I was considering blogging about it at the time.  And listening to it, my fear that the judge didn’t get it—that he didn’t know about Kimberlin’s horrible criminal background—was unfounded.  And to be self-critical, I should have figured that out from listening to the other hearings that day.  What struck me as I listened to the other cases (Kimberlin’s was the last to be called), was that this judge had clearly done his homework.  He knew most of the files back and forth and remembered a great number of details from every case off the top of his head.  So I should have known that even though Judge Rupp had not sat in on the whole case, that he would have read the majority of the relevant documents, which would have brought out Kimberlin’s deplorable past.  Now in one moment I will share with you an embedded copy of the whole transcript and you can read through it at your leisure, but here’s the moment where it became the most clear that Rupp got it, that he understood exactly who Kimberlin was:
MR. KIMBERLIN: I mean, it’s like I said, this is all since November 14th, this stuff. And it’s all about my business, and it’s all about me. I mean, I was arrested 32 years ago on a case. I got out of jail. I did my time. I run two non-profits in this, in this wonderful city working with kids and congressmembers and community leaders. And you know, I have two kids and a wife. And this guy will not leave me alone. He wants to post stuff that happened 32 years ago. You know, he dug up 32-year-old mug shots of me that I had never even seen before, that had never been posted.
THE COURT: Well, that doesn’t constitute defamation.  It’s all true.
So the court went on, looking at post after post at Seth Allen’s blog and deciding that one post after another didn’t constitute defamation and therefore it didn’t violate the order.  I didn’t see which exact posts Rupp was talking about, but you can deduce much of it from reading the transcript.  So if you are curious—and in the name of full disclosure—embedded here is a full copy of the transcript of that hearing.
So that takes us through the hearing and it was after that hearing that what I call the January 9 incident occurred.

How Brett Kimberlin Tried to Frame Me for a Crime—Part 3: The January 9 Incident.

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/05/24

Originally published by Aaron Worthing.

[This post is part of a larger series of posts.  See here for a fuller explanation.]
 As the hearing ended, I gathered my things and got up.  Because of this I found myself about a step behind Kimberlin as he left.  Kimberlin has feebly claimed I was “following” him in an attempt to claim I was harassing him—but it was only in the sense that I knew of no other way to leave the building available to me.  Anyway, so Kimberlin turns to me and says, “I would suggest, Mr. Walker, that you leave me alone.”
I replied, “I will continue to tell the truth about you.”  And then he continued to leave and I decided to ask him a few more questions in the hope of getting an admission out of him, asking him why he didn’t call me to the stand that day, given that I was supposedly such a vital witness.  I said to him at one point, “The truth is you didn’t want my testimony, you just wanted my identity.”
And he turned to me and in a flash of anger, he said, “And I got it!
During this exchange we had moved out of the courtroom, and into the waiting area outside.  Shortly after he said those words, he took about two steps back and with a smirk, he raised his iPad as though to use it.  Here’s what I wrote about it in my criminal complaint against him, and it is the truth (I will embed it later):

 

On January 9, 2012, I was leaving court at the same time as Mr. Kimberlin when Mr. Kimberlin raised his iPad as though to use it.  Knowing that Mr. Kimberlin had deep malice toward me and knowing his criminal history, I was afraid he was about to do harm to me so I took the device from him.  Because of the malice he had toward me and his criminal record, I believe I had a reasonable fear of bodily harm in that situation, justifying the invocation of self-defense.  Even so, I only used the minimum force necessary to protect myself from this perceived danger.  Specifically, I snatched iPad from him (he offered no resistance) and kept it from him, without ever once making contact with his body.  I did not strike his body with my own.  I did not push him.  I did not wrestle with him.  I did not strike him with the iPad as he later alleges.
That was the judgment I made about his conduct when I had no time to think, when I had to make a snap decision.  As I waited, holding the iPad away from him I had time to think and to replay the event in my mind.  As I thought about it I realized that more than likely Mr. Kimberlin only attempted to take my picture.  I concluded that it was unlikely that the device was a bomb because I believe Mr. Kimberlin is too much of a narcissist to ever risk his own life.  Therefore when the sheriff’s deputies arrived at the scene, I stated my belief that Mr. Kimberlin had taken a picture of me.  Mr. Kimberlin denied that this occurred.  I asked the officers to inspect the iPad for photographs.  I did not see them do this, but they represented that they did, and I trust their word.  I asked to inspect it myself, but they refused this request.
So basically I took his iPad out of fear for my safety—he is a convicted bomber after all—and then held it away from him peacefully.  Courtroom staff told me that they had called the sheriffs deputies.  I don’t remember my precise words, but I urged them to do exactly that.  And the deputies arrived shortly afterward.  At that point I gave back the iPad (giving it to a deputy who passed it along to Kimberlin) and accused Kimberlin of attempting to photograph me, which is against the rules in the courthouse.
Since then, Brett Kimberlin has essentially claimed that I not only took the iPad but I beat him up while doing so, and he filed charges for assault based on that claim.  He has at times claimed that I have “decked” him, that I punched him repeatedly, that I wrestled with him, that I pushed him, that courtroom staff had to separate us, that sheriff’s deputies had to separate us, that I kept coming at him repeatedly and they had to hold me back.  I will show you in just one moment where he said all of that—all of the documents, transcripts, etc.—but there is one way Brett Kimberlin fatally miscalculated.  It never occurred to the rocket scientist that there might be security cameras in the courthouse that captured the whole thing.
Well, either that or he knew this was a possibility and didn’t care.
The video itself takes a bit of introduction.  It was recorded using ViconNet’s proprietary software and while apparently the camera feed to the main security station is continuous, the recording is not.  Let me use the testimony of Lt. Col. Bruce Sherman, of the Sheriff’s office, to explain to some degree, taking his testimony from the April 11, 2012 hearing related to this:
Q [Reginald Bours III, my attorney] Tell me about the system that these photographs are taken with or these videos are taken with.
A [Lt. Col. Bruce Sherman] There’s a Vicon system that has a number of hard drives, maybe two or three hard drives. I’m not exactly sure about the electronics, but there is a rack in the Sheriff’s office on the T8 level in the courthouse that records video feeds from cameras that are installed in the courtrooms, installed in the hallways in the courthouse, pursuant to a security study done by the National Center for State Courts some years ago.
They typically — some of them are fixed cameras.  Some of them are directable cameras and they record what I would call multiplexed video. In other words, it’s not a continuous stream of photographs. There are maybe 16 cameras being recorded on one hard disc and it will switch from each of those 16 cameras, as I understand it, take a fraction of a second, switch to the next camera, and then it gets multiplexed. Then there’s a software kind of set up that allows it to separate those pictures out again.
So the video feed to their hard drives is continuous, but the recording is not.  Instead it only takes a “snapshot” at certain intervals and the video is going to be a series of these snapshots, shown in order.  Here’s a screenshot of the video, with some helpful arrows on it:

Of course you can see where I pointed out where I was, and where Kimberlin was (the easy way to remember is that I am about half a foot taller than Kimberlin).  And notice that there is a time stamp at the bottom left of the screen.  Each “snapshot” will tell you down to the second when it occurred.  And by watching the intervals, I estimate that the actual gap between images is around 1.75 seconds; that is, there is about 1.75 seconds between each snapshot.
Finally, because this is extremely raw video, you need to wait a minute before anything happens at all.  Or you could fast forward…
So without further ado, here is the video:
Feel free to watch it more than one time.  Now whose version of events lines up more with what you just saw?  Mine, where I say (as I have always said) that all I did was that I took the iPad from him and nothing else?  Or his various accounts?
But in fact Kimberlin went a lot further than that.  This convicted document forger went as far as to produce fake photographs and fake medical records in an attempt to convince law enforcement that I had so brutally beat him that I put him in the hospital.*  In short, he attempted to frame me.

—————————
* I say that his medical records and photographs were fakes, as a matter of logic.  I know I didn’t strike the man once and hopefully by the end of this story you will believe me.  So there is no way he was actually injured the way he claimed.  So when he produced photographs there are only three logical possibilities, as far as I can see: 1) the photographs are fakes—where he put on makeup or used software Photoshop—to make himself appear bruised when he was not, 2) the photographs are real but were from a prior injury or 3) he was really bruised that day, but not by me.  Either way, they are fakes.  Likewise, Kimberlin’s medical records cannot genuinely reflect injuries I gave him, so therefore there are only two possibilities: either this convicted document forger forged medical records, or he was genuinely injured that day, but not by me.  And in both cases there is the possibility that he had someone beat him up for him, or even caused himself harm.  But bluntly, I think it is more likely that the documents were just phony in some fashion.  It better fits with the criminal conduct he has engaged in, in the past.
