The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin was photographed stalking Aaron Walker’s wife in the parking lot of the Howard County District Courthouse in Ellicott City, Maryland, on 1 March, 2013. When the Walkers sought to have Kimberlin charged with stalking, they were told by an Assistant State’s Attorney from the Howard County State’s Attorney’s Office to “stay out of Maryland” if they didn’t want to be stalked. That resulted in my suggesting that members of the public should contact the Howard County State’s Attorney’s Office to inquire if that was really the policy of that office and that they should blog about what they found out on Everyone Blog About the Howard Count State’s Attorney Day.
TDPK and his buddies have tried to paint that as an attempt to harass the HoCo State’s Attorney. Indeed, he has brought it up both the state and RICO nuisance lawsuits. Here’s how I responded in one of my pleadings.
He spins a lot of things that are irrelevant into this mess of frivolous filings…just to waste peoples’ time and money.
“If you talk about me, I’ll accuse you of TEAM THEMIS!”
I have hear Team Kimberlin twist this into some sort of harassment of the Howard County State’s Attorney’s Office. They say you wanted people to call and lock up the phones. Actually that didn’t happen on this blog — but if Mr. Hoge encourages his readers to be involved in civic life by commenting on a matter of public policy that is EXACTLY what the First Amendment was for.
It’s clearly protected speech — and immaterial to the Kimberlin vs. Universe et al court case.
One theory is that if you tell a huge number of really really bold lies, you make such and ugly mess, that many lazy thinkers will guess ‘if there’s smoke, there’s fire’. I think that’s been the case sometimes where people say ‘yeah, BK s a bad guy, but some of your actions were probably bad, so why don’t you both just stop it?’ To the bad guys, this parity with the good guys is a boon.
Of course, this approach falls apart as soon as you come under scrutiny. If the judge actually delves into the details, or a reader does, every lie becomes more and more damning for the bad guys. Once you realize these are such ridiculous people who would say anything, the smear attempt ceases to muddy the waters and actually clarifies just how terrible these bad guys have been.
Hopefully that’s how Kimberlin will be determined to be a vexatious litigant. Hopefully.
