If you’re so concerned for your safety, stay out of Maryland
Stay off the Internet if you don’t want to be harassed.
That’s what Jim Brewer, an Assistant State’s Attorney in Howard County, Maryland, told Mr. and Mrs. Aaron Walker when they sought protection from what they believed was harassment and stalking. Even if the Walker’s were mistaken (and I don’t think they were), those seem rather inappropriate things for an Assistant State’s Attorney to say.
Do they reflect the actual policies of Howard County State’s Attorney Dario J. Broccolino? Hogwash! is encouraging other bloggers to contact Mr. Broccolino (contact info and more details here) for clarification and to post the answers received along with any commentary on 8 April, Everyone Blog About the Howard County State’s Attorney Day.
