One of the more frustrating aspects of dealing with Team Kimberlin has been the apparent unwillingness of some of the State’s Attorney’s Offices in Maryland to enforce the law. One example from five years ago was so egregious that it prompted this post calling for an Everyone Blog About the Howard County State’s Attorney Day.

If you’re so concerned about your safety, don’t come to Maryland.
That’s what Jim Brewer, an Assistant State’s Attorney in Howard County, told Mrs. Aaron Walker when she sought the protection of the Maryland legal system from a stalker. The stalker, by the way, was convicted serial bomber Brett Kimberlin.
When the Walkers met with ASA Brewer concerning an harassment charge against Bill Schmalfeldt, he came into the meeting with his mind already made up to drop the charge on Schmalfeldt. When Lee Stanahan met with Brewer about a similar charge against Schmalfeldt, he came in with the same no sale attitude, and even after listening to Mr. Stranahan’s side of the story, would not promise anything.
The State’s Attorney dropped both Stranahan’s and Walker’s charges against Schmalfeldt. That was done without providing the notice of the change of hearing date to either complainant. They only found out when Hogewash! alerted them, and this blog only found out because of a tip from a commenter. This doesn’t seem to be within the spirit of Maryland’s victims’ rights procedures.
I propose the following. Over the next couple of weeks, I encourage bloggers to contact the Howard County State’s Attorney Dario J. Broccolino for comments on those cases and the following questions in particular:
1. Is it the position of the State’s Attorney that operation of a blog allows one unlimited license to contact another person without regard to Maryland Criminal Statutes 3-803 and/or 3-805?
2. Does Mr. Broccilino believe that a public person such as himself may not seek to demand that someone cease contacting him as provided by Maryland Criminal Statutes 3-803 and/or 3-805?
3. Is it the policy of State’s Attorney that non-residents of Maryland must or should avoid entering the state if they are being stalked by a Maryland resident?
On Monday, 8 April, 2013, I suggest that those bloggers who have contacted the Howard County State’s Attorney post the answers they have received along with any comments they feel would be appropriate—8 April should be Everyone Blog About the Howard County State’s Attorney Day.
The Howard County State’s Attorney’s phone number is (410) 313-2108.
The fax number is (410) 313-3294.

This post got under the skin of Team Kimberlin and was enough of an irritant that they routinely included references to it in their lawsuits directed against me to show that I was guilty of something. In fact, The
Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin tried to me about EBATHCSAD when he called me as a witness in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance LOLsuit. The exchange did not go well for him.
Q [Kimberlin]: Now you were also you were involved with another campaign called everybody blog about the Howard County Prosecutors or Howard County State’s Attorney’s Office, correct?
MR. OSTRONIC [My Lawyer]: Objection.
HE COURT: Sustained.
MR. KIMBERLIN: Your Honor —
THE COURT: How is the Howard County Prosecutors and the Howard County State’s Attorney —
MR. KIMBERLIN: Because they filed charges against me in Howard County. They put this list —
MR. OSTRONIC: Objection.
THE COURT: What does that have to do with this?
MR. KIMBERLIN:Because they attacked the Prosecutor —
MR. OSTRONIC: Objection.
THE COURT: Well that’s not relevant to this case.
Butthurt is not a tort, and the real or imagined butthurt of a third-party public official who has been asked about his job performance does not provide cause of action either.
No wonder they’ve never found a lawyer to voluntarily represent them in one of their LOLsuits.
