Brett Kimberlin Scraping the Bottom of the Peace Order Barrel [UPDATED]

Witnessing someone devolve into self parody can bring about a sense of schadenfreude, if it didn't involve other people. In this case the other person is a man named John Norton of Virginia during a recent commute in Maryland.

Consider the amount of random bad luck a random guy must feel he's accumulated by seeing a man and girl in a car, driving erratically, being tailgated, getting flipped off (actually, Norton's response said "obscene gesture"- I'm not going to opt with one of the myriad somaticisms Italian cab drivers are fond of doling out in traffic) and then being accosted when Mr. Norton takes video to document the encounter.

One wonders if Kimberlin has a stack of peace orders all filled out and ready to go, with a fill-in-blank method just waiting for someone's name. He claims that Norton was on his property taking pictures, and began a car chase -with his daughter in the vehicle (Nice parenting, champ!)- to get the license information.

Aaron Walker's Allergic2Bull has the story, as well as the complaint and response embedded from ScibD. Thanks also to Bob Belvedere's The Camp of the Saints for the clue-in.


Oh! Something I missed earlier. The final disposition of the peace order against Mr. Norton is being held this morning at 8:30 Eastern time. So by the time I post this it ought to be going on now. Thanks TheOtherMcCain for keeping me on track.

As an aside, Mr Kidd has got some nice work- huge cash from liberal donors, all this time to be walking into police stations and filing motions, what a life. I bet he uses threats of judicial action against his shrubs so they'll trim themselves.
