Aaron Walker tells the story of his most recent encounter with the “Speedway Bomber.” It’s like Wile E. Coyote and Acme rocket skates: You might think he’d learn a lesson, but somehow he never does:
Brett Kimberlin – who spent 17 years in federal prison after being convicted as Indiana’s infamous “Speedway Bomber” – showed up at a Maryland court house and began photographing Walker’s wife.
While Walker was attending a March 1 hearing and his wife was in their car in the parking lot outside, Kimberlin “circled the vehicle, looking into its interior and at my wife,” Walker wrote at his “Allergic to Bull” blog. Walker said Kimberlin “drove around and then parked in the space directly facing my wife … and started taking pictures or filming her.”
“Streisand Effect” — you can look it up. Attempts to suppress the truth tend to have the opposite effect in the New Media age.
What is the truth that Brett Kimberlin so desperately wants to suppress? Just read this: “When Jessica Was 10, 11, 12 . . .”
When the pro-Kimberlin trolls get up in my face on Twitter, I just start Tweeting out that link, and pretty soon, they get out of my face. Why? Because calling attention to someone who tells the truth about Kimberlin sort of defeats the purpose of the Kimberlin fanboy trolls.
And so, truth! truth! truth! What happened to Julia Scyphers?
Blog Bash is Thursday night. The place will be packed to fire-code capacity, and Aaron Walker will be there, along with hundreds of bloggers who all have a motive to tell the truth about Brett Kimberlin.
Let me ask you something: Wouldn’t you like to see video of that event — hundreds of bloggers cheering — when Aaron Walker receives a check to help with his legal expenses? Give what you can — $10, $20, $50 — and make sure the truth about Brett Kimberlin gets told.
UPDATE: Patterico writes:
This news comes on the heels of reports that Kimberlin and his associate Neal Rauhauser have made calls to the establishment hosting the BlogBash party, which Aaron plans to attend, threatening the establishment with protests by Muslims due to Aaron’s involvement with the “Everyone Draw Mohammed” web site, which Aaron and others created to stand up to Islamic extremists who would kill those who dared to depict Mohammed.
C’mon: $10, $20, $50 for the truth.
