Note To Self: Stay Out Of Maryland
Judge C.J. Vaughey Loves Him Some Speedway Bomber
Filed Under: JackassJudges
Judge C. J. Vaughey says: Welcome to Maryland, boy! Around here, we don't cotton to you writing about convicted terrorist bomber Brett Kimberlin and his cronies! You just leave that poor shrinking violet alone. Why, you made Brett Kimberlin cry, boy! And you can tell he's a sensitive person about it, what with filing over 100 lawsuits all over the country! You go straight to jail for writing about Brett Kimberlin!

Top Update: Aaron tweets that he is now free, so his incarceration wasn't for long. Good news.
Stacy McCain reports that Aaron Walker has been put into custody for violating a frivolous "Peace Order" filed against him by Brett Kimberlin, the Speedway Bomber.
Brett Kimberlin, as you may know, has filed over 100 frivolous lawsuits since being jailed for blowing a man's leg off in Indiana.
It is an absolute miscarriage of justice, but no surprise, given that Judge C.J. Vaughey has some very odd ideas of justice.
Now this jackass judge ignores the fact that Brett Kimberlin is a convicted domestic terrorist and jails someone who writes the truth about him.
Note to self: stay out of Maryland. Judges like C.J. Vaughey are insane monsters.
Update 1: An eyewitness account, via the Awesome Sooper Mexican...
Judge Vaughan had read up on the matter, knew Kimberlin's history of felony convictions, but clearly was technically ignorant of even basic facts about what Twitter is, in one instance point saying "He Googled you 500,000 times" through the Tubes or whatever. The Judge had identified himself, earlier, as being "of the Royal Typewriter Generation," and at another point, when confronted with the voluminous material from both sides, asked "don't people have jobs, who reads this stuff?"
That said, Judge Vaughan did know a lot about the kind of respect a Judge is owed. He also, again, knew all about Kimberlin, saying "even a prostitute is entitled to protection."
