Update (II): Erick Erickson shares his account. Because he warned the police ahead of time that this could happen it wasn't quite the dangerous situation that Patterico faced. But the intent to intimidate was there.
Update (III): True story, when Kimberlin first obtained my identity, I went to the local police and made sure they knew about this situation and the very real possibility that I might be swatted. Then as I came back home, I looked at the front yard, where because of sewer pipe problems I had to dig up half the front yard. I have mentioned before that I find humor in horror, and this was one of those times. I looked at it and thought to myself, "if someone calls the police and tells them that I killed my wife, they are going to think she's buried in the front yard!"
It isn't a laughing matter, but as I told you before, I can laugh at things that are unfunny. We now resume our original post.
What we are watching is the attempt to suppress speech occurring in real time. Of course we don’t know it is Brett Kimberlin or his allies; for all we know it could end up being a hoax. But there is a growing pattern. Patrick Frey has the story.
