BREAKING NEWS: tonight I was swatted. More details to come. @Liberty_Chick @Patterico @ali @michellemalkin @AoSHQ @Dust92@rsmccain

Aaron Walker, one of the bloggers targeted by Brett Kimberlin, is the latest victim of SWAT-ting. Walker, who goes by Aaron Worthing online, tweeted the news of this extreme form of harassment being used on his family shortly after news broke that the peace order against him had been modified, restoring his First Amendment rights. Thankfully, though, Aaron reports that he and his wife are safe.

My wife and I are safe. Will be more details when I can provide it. Wife was very upset dealing with her.—

   Patterico reports that he has heard directly from Aaron Walker that the gag order that prohibited him from blogging about terrorist Brett Kimberlin has been amended to afford him once again his free speech rights . BRAVO

  ” Aaron tells me by phone that the word is Judge Rupp signed the order, modifying the peace order against Aaron to let him speak publicly about Kimberlin.” 

   Via Twitchy we get some great news for Aaron Walker although he is still saddled with the gag order re: Bomber Kimberlin so it is not a clear victory for free speech just yet . 

”   ” Fantastic news: the criminal charges against blogger Aaron Walker have been dropped.

So beat feet, Brett Kimberlin. You lose.

The court listed the reason for disposition as “nolle prosequi”, meaning the prosecutor was “unwilling to pursue” the peace order violation. ”

So , while the judge was clueless , the prosecutor knew a losing proposition when he saw it .

Good for Aaron , good for US .

  While Michelle Malkin is taking part in the Day of Blogging Silence , she herself is not remaining silent . Here is a piece on Kimberlin from today’s National Review .

 

   “In 1978, Kimberlin was sentenced to more than 50 years in federal prison for drug dealing, impersonating a federal officer, and a weeklong bombing spree in Speedway, Ind. The violent crimes left one victim so severely injured that he committed suicide. A civil court awarded the widow of the victim, Carl DeLong, $1.6 million. Kimberlin was released from jail in 2001, but he has yet to pay up.”
