Aaron Walker Was SWATted Tonight (Updated)

Interesting, today Aaron won an emergency stay which temporarily permits him to speak and write about Kimberlin, pending a July 5 hearing.

Note, "Worthing" is the name he uses on his blog. Kimberlin decided to "out" Aaron's real last name. Just to remove any confusion you may have over the two names.

Update: Via a previous SWATing victim: 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.[More..]
Update:
Congresswoman Sandy Adams reacts to Walker SWATting

Also, Walker has posted about his SWATting

Some of Team Kimberlin "reactions":

"Fake SWATting & statement for the press". Will this person stand before some cameras somewhere? Anywhere?

Oh, he/she/it is "still writing up report":

Maybe the journalist "Liberal Grouch" is the "press" OccupyRebellion speaks of?

Note: Don't go to their sites (web not Twitter) without TOR, etc.

Also, Patterico checks out threats against Brett Kimberlin, notably a "fake" Patterico comment on his own blog that Kimnberlin used as "evidence" of threats against him, among other screen caps, the convicted bomber used in response to Walker's motion for emergency stay.

Update II: A "personal" statement from a left leaning lawyer of, "high-quality tempered American brass" balls, whose law office is representing Walker: A Personal Statement About Professional Fortitude.

I watched what he speaks of playing out on Twitter, Team Kimberlin @ting people and groups he represents/has represented in an attempt to get his law office to drop Walker as a client.

Snippet:

...Fortunately, my local police captain was extremely receptive to my letter faxed to him describing my concerns[SWATting...ed]; he assured me in his manifest professionalism today that he has gotten these sort of foolish calls before and has a highly disciplined squad who are simply not going to go “stormtrooper”, and who have been fully briefed and directed to check with him first before they assume that any report about me might be true. I had occasion to work with two of his detectives and one of his uniformed officers in January when two other community members and I got robbed at gunpoint outside my apartment; I will be seeing them again in August and September when the three suspects stand trial or plea out. So I am not particularly worried about getting “SWAT”-ted; whatever is out there doing the “SWAT”-ing should fear the police captain’s irritation, as he is clearly not in the mood to put up with any games.

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.

Well said sir, well said.
