Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


CitizenKIt’s been a while since we looked back at Brett Kimberlin’s authorized biography, Citizen K:  The Deeply Weird American Journey of Brett Kimberlinby Mark Singer. Here’s something from page 184 about his time in the federal prison in Oxford, Wisconsin.

At Oxford, he was assigned as a quality-control clerk at a prison factory that manufactured cables for military aircraft and tanks. His task was to inspect the finished goods. Each day, he said, he did his work quickly and then tried to immerse himself in a book, but the prison guard who was his overseer objected to his reading on the job. When he persisted, the guard threatened to give him a “shot”—to write an incident report  that could lead to disciplinary action. So he stopped bringing a book to work, he said, and instead devoted his spare time to sabotage. “I’d run the cables through quality control,” he said. “I’d check them. I’d sign off on them. And then I’d cut some of the damn wires.”

Of course, he was in the slammer for a bombing conviction, so I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised that he would do something that would put someone’s life at risk.

  1. As much as the Fail Whale bellows “Treason” about the President, he ignores the treason of his excellent friend.

    Queer.

  2. On the other hand, he could have just been telling stories.

    Who would sign off on them and then cut them?

    Why would there be anything around that he could use to cut them?

  3. This along with his indiscriminate bombings show how little regard he has for anyone else’s life. Bill Schmalfeldt would be wise to remember that.

    • There is some really odd co-dependency going on here that these two haven’t put out hits on one another.

      Eventually, one of these clowns is going to hack off the wrong person and will get whacked. Bad guys do have limits after all.
