Today is Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day! Earlier this week, I wrote about Brett Kimberlin, the convicted felon known as the Speedway Bomber. This dangerous man is not only a murderer, but Brett Kimberlin also has a lengthy list of legal problems, and a long list of victims he has intimidated, threatened, sued, and gotten false criminal charges against.
Today Patrick Frey at Patterico’s Pontifications illustrates (once again) how dangerous Brett Kimberlin is. On July 1, 2011, Frey was “SWATted,” a terroristic technique in which someone calls the police pretending to be Frey and telling police he just murdered his wife. A SWAT team descended on Frey’s home almost immediately, removing him and his (very much alive) wife at gunpoint and ensuring that the children were still alive as well.
Why did this happen and who else was in Kimberlin’s sights? Patrick Frey explains:
Why target me? Well, I first wrote about Brett Kimberlin in October 2010, after getting a call from Andrew Breitbart. Andrew told me that his site was going to publish a post about a domestic terrorist named Brett Kimberlin. The story sounded interesting, and I published a post about Kimberlin shortly after the Breitbart post (penned by Mandy Nagy aka Liberty Chick) was published.
The next day, Kimberlin threatened to sue me. He said: “I have filed over a hundred lawsuits and another one will be no sweat for me. On the other hand, it will cost you a lot of time and money and for what.” I asked him to identify any specific falsehoods in my post and he did not. I published subsequent posts about topics like Kimberlin’s alleged murderous plots to escape from prison and exact revenge on his enemies and an examination of his non-profits’ tax returns. In February 2011, I talked about stalkerish intimidation tactics used by Kimberlin and his business partner, Brad Friedman of the “Brad Blog.”
Patrick and others who had written about Brett Kimberlin and were being relentlessly harassed by Kimberlin and/or his associates. The harassment included false complaints to the California State Bar, malicious Tweets and blog posts, threats of violence, and a frivolous lawsuit. The harassment also included multiple references to uninvolved family members, the publication of home addresses, false complaints to employers, abuse of the court system, and false claims of criminal activity.
Frey suspected that the SWATting was the work of Brett Kimberlin and/or his associates. He suspected it was Ron Brynaert, a man who had been harassing him for months.
Frey asked the FBI to analyze the recording of the SWATting call with other recordings of a voice known to belong to Brynaert. When they refused, he hired his own expert to do a forensic voice identification. Listen to Bryanert and the SWAT caller here. Skip to 1:10 if you’re in a hurry.
And the expert’s opinion:
In this case the following files were presented for evaluation: Tag names for these four recordings are shown in BOLD. The[y] represent calls from two Swat Hoax cases, one involving Patrick Frey and one involving Mike Stack [the man from New Jersey — ed.].
G-8025959 FREY SWAT – Call made to 911 claiming a shooting at Mr. Frey’s residence on 7/1/2011 at 12:16 AM. Caller impersonates Patrick Frey.
Stack Call – STACK SWAT – Call made to police dispatch in Readington, New Jersey. 6/23/2011 Caller impersonates Mike Stack.
Ron Brynaert Interview.mp3 – BRYNAERT KNOWN – an internet radio interview. This caller is suspected of being the Swat caller re: Frey.
Lee Call-in Radio Show – LEE KNOWN (Lee is interviewer’s name, not caller.) This caller is suspected of being the Swat caller re: Stack.
. . . .
CONCLUSION: Considering all of the evidence presented, it is my expert forensic examiner opinion that it is probable that all voice samples come from the same person.
Patrick Frey has been harassed in this manner for almost a year, all because he dared to write an article about Brett Kimberlin on his blog in October 2010. And he’s not the only one. Aaron Walker has been a victim of Brett Kimberlin because he dared to give a small bit of legal advice to Seth Allen, another victim of Kimberlin’s underhanded tactics. And the list of people targeted by Kimberlin and his allies goes well beyond this.
Truth is stranger than fiction. This stuff really happens. And what if it happened to you?
Spread the story of Brett Kimberlin and company far and wide. Maybe with enough publicity, law enforcement will take action to contain this menace to society.
