The #BrettKimberlin Report D+31 Part II: BREAKING – AARON WALKER SWATted! [Updates Below]

25 June 2012 @ 19:29

All we have is Aaron’s Tweet so far [tip of the fedora to Stacy McCain]:

Aaron Worthing@AaronWorthing 6m

BREAKING NEWS: tonight I was swatted. More details to come.

More when I get it.

[This post will remain at the top of this column until further notice]

UPDATED at 1935…

The latest Tweet from Aaron:

Aaron Worthing@AaronWorthing

My wife and I are safe. Will be more details when I can provide it. Wife was very upset dealing with her.

UPDATE at 2011…

-Twitchy is on the story and updating here.

-From Joe Brooks:

Brett Kimberlin ally makes blind threat on his website (no safe link available):

“And speaking of fun… I’m told that we have something coming up in the future ourselves that will be killer diller! Hot stuff. Hubba hubba! And I ain’t kidding. I haven’t even been told who it is yet, and already I’m looking forward to it. “

More details coming soon.

Hmmm.

UPDATE at 2017…

From Patterico:

No joke. It happened around 6 p.m. Eastern. I briefly talked with one of the police officers at the scene, who confirmed that someone had called saying he had shot his wife, and sent officers to Aaron’s address.

He also reports the police has machine guns at the ready.

UPDATE at 2037…

The latest Tweet from Dustin:

Dustin ‏@Dust92

Spoke with Aaron. He’s OK. He’ll put a post up tonight, but it’ll be a bit.

Expect more Updates.

UPDATE at 2041…

The latest Tweets from Aaron:

Aaron Worthing ‏@AaronWorthing

We’re going to get food delivered and relax for a bit. I will tell my story soon, but I need to attend to my lovely wife first.

Aaron Worthing ‏@AaronWorthing

So don’t expect me to say something on my blog before 10 eastern.

Aaron Worthing ‏@AaronWorthing

But I will say this. If anyone thinks this will stop me from telling the truth about #BrettKimberlin they have another thing coming.

Aaron Worthing ‏@AaronWorthing

What happened tonight was a sign of desperation to silence me about #BrettKimberlin, that much is obvious. And it won’t work.

Godspeed.

UPDATE at 2055…

Stacy McCain has started reporting here and I’m sure he’ll be updating.

UPDATE at 2103…

The intrepid Mandy Nagy [aka @Liberty_Chick] reports in a Tweet:

Aaron & family are ok, maybe a bit shaken. Police were still there looking into the matter when I spoke w him.

Good to hear.

Next Update at 2300 EST. Strike that — Stacy has asked that I continue the Updates.  I will.

UPDATE at 2303…

Via Instapundit, we learn that one of Aaron Walker’s lawyers, Bruce Godfrey, has felt compelled to issue a statement defiantly defending taking on Aaron as a client.  Why would that be?  Perhaps, Mr. Godfrey gives us the answer:

I do know that there have been some petty efforts to interfere with my relationships with some legal referral sources of mine. But when I tell you I don’t care, I don’t care. I have no boss to “harass”; this law shop is mine for my clients’ welfare and I answer to no one but my clients and the courts. That’s that.

Either you have the courage to do what needs to be done as an attorney, or you don’t. Fortunately, I do. At the risk of ungentlemanly coarseness, mine are made out of high-quality tempered American brass, and that fact settles the discussion. Indeed, the best way to discourage this sort of nonsense is to respond to it with moral fortitude, measured, reasonable responses and, to the extent strictly lawful, vi et armis.

Bravo, Mr. Godfrey, bravo.

-Still awaiting Aaron’s statement.

UPDATE at 2317…

Lee Stranahan has filed a report at Breitbart that fills in more details.  A highlight [tip of the fedora to Mandy Nagy]:

Walker told Breitbart News that he was home with his wife this evening at approximately 6:00pm when there was a “pretty insistent” knock at his door. Walker answered to find about six police cars in the street and two officers taking positions against the wall with M4 rifles. Since he was aware of the previous swattings of Patrick “Patterico” Frey, Erick Erickson, and Mike Stack, Mr. Walker asked the police if someone had called and claimed he had killed his wife, and police confirmed that that was the case.

Do take the time to click here and read the rest.

UPDATE at 2327…

Aaron Walker has just published his account of what happened to him this evening.  It may be found here.

I’m off to read it.

UPDATE at 2337…

This SWATting has strengthened Aaron ‘s resolve:

Whoever did this, if you think this will stop me from speaking the truth about the violent domestic terrorist Brett Kimberlin, you are sadly mistaken. If anything it makes me more determined than ever. This was an act of desperation; this was not the act of people who feel they are winning. Indeed it was the [act] of people too much a bunch of wussies to come at me directly.

Well put.

UPDATE at 2343…

The member of the Congress behind the letter sent by House members demanding Eric Holder look into the SWATting incidents, Sandy Adams FL-24 has released a statement on this latest incident to the folks at Breitbart.

UPDATE at 2357…

I don’t much else will break tonight, so I’m off to bed [have to be up by 0600].  I’m sure if something breaks, Stacy will have it over at his place and/or @Liberty_Chick will Tweet it.

Goodnight.

    wow why is this happening? I saw Aaron’s post that he had got his freedom, and was happy for him. I especially liked the MC hammer “Can’t touch this” video he put up. It was funny. Maybe Kimberlin saw that video and acted in rage.
