Murdoc’s been vaguely aware of the story about how convicted bomber Brett Kimberlin and/or associates are waging a cowardly war against their foes using various forms of harassment, legal action, and apparently SWAT-ting, but he hadn’t read beyond the headlines and lead paragraphs until today.
If you’re unfamiliar with the story, I encourage you to check out Convicted Bomber Brett Kimberlin, Neal Rauhauser, Ron Brynaert, and Their Campaign of Political Terrorism at Patterico and especially the lengthy How Brett Kimberlin Tried to Frame Me for a Crime at Allergic to Bull.
The consistent methodology of deceit and intimidation, including threats against the families of bloggers and hoax calls that bring police to the door in the middle of the night in the belief that they’re responding to an armed murderer, seems apparent if you read the stories.
Murdoc does not know either of the bloggers linked personally, but the injustice of the situation can not be allowed to stand. Murdoc has at times been the subject of threats, intimidation attempts, and some low-intensity web harassment.
Though nothing even close to approaching the level related in the linked stories has been brought in his direction, Murdoc urges those who would see justice prevail at least read and see what can happen when a determined foe wages war against you. Remember that it can happen to anyone at any time. And stand with those who defy our enemies, whether foreign or domestic.
UPDATE: Forgot to include the link to the story of the SWAT-ing of the blogger at Allergic to Bull the night after he was granted an emergency stay of restraint upon his freedom of speech.
I recall blogging years ago about hoax 911 calls to set the police on unsuspecting people, but I can’t find the post. Murdoc’s guess at the time was that that this it would get a lot worse.
