I am Aaron Walker

Michelle Malkin has the history of blogger Aaron Walker who was arrested for blogging in an ongoing fight with convicted bomber Brett Kimberlin.  Kimberlin got leftist judge Cornelius Vaughey to put out a warrant for Walker for blogging about the cyber-terrorist.  Kimberlin, aka the Speedway Bomber, used his time in prison to get a law degree that he uses as a weapon against conservative bloggers.  By any definition Kimberlin is a public figure but he was able to get Judge Vaughey to arrest Walker for blogging about Kimberlin and his fellow terrorists at Breitbart Unmasked.  One terror tactic used by the bunch is called SWATing where the group makes 911 phone calls that appear to come from the victim's home phone reporting a violent crime in progress.  Often times this will result in heavily armed SWAT teams responding to the victims home.  Patrick Frey who blogs at Petterico's Pontifications and RedState editor Erick Erickson have both been victims.  These sick attacks on free speech have been largely ignored by the MSM but may finally be coming to light.  I hadn't any idea about any of this until I saw a link to Michelle Malkin's post that darkwords posted at The Blogmocracy last night.

You can help the victims here.  Michelle has a list of other things you can do.
