Someone claiming to be Brett Kimberlin (and who, with the whiny tone, sounds like him) is seeking to have Kimberlin’s Wikipedia page deleted. (Thanks to A. for the tip.) The request is here, and reads as follows:
Brett Kimberlin Wikipedia page violates its own policies.
This page was originally put up by people associated with Andrew Breibart in order to smear me and deprive me of being able to receive funding for my non-profit organizations. Moderators initially removed it because of WP policies regarding living persons. Finally, the Breitbots, led by Breitbart/Sputnik reporter Lee Stranahan, began a pressure campaign to force WP to keep the page over my strong objections.
I really like this part:
Parts of the WP read like a tabloid with sensationalism and total disregard for my privacy.
By 1976, Kimberlin’s drug business was grossing hundreds of thousands of dollars a month. Kimberlin invested his free cash in such businesses as a retail health food store, a vegetarian restaurant, and an Earth shoe franchise. However, Kimberlin became a suspect in the murder of Julia Scyphers, the mother of a friend/employee of his in Speedway, Indiana in 1978.
In the first six days of September 1978, a series of bombings struck Speedway. Initially there were no injuries; however, the last bombing led to the amputation of Vietnam veteran Carl DeLong’s right leg, and left DeLong and his wife with several other injuries that required significant hospitalization and rehabilitation. DeLong committed suicide in February 1983. Investigators traced the Mark-Time timer and the Tovex 200 used in the bombings to Kimberlin, and he was placed under surveillance. The police believed that Kimberlin had conducted the Speedway bombings to divert attention from the murder investigation.
On September 20, 1978, Kimberlin was then arrested by the FBI for an entirely different charge—possession and illegal use of Department of Defense insignia, illegal use of the Seal of the President of the United States, and impersonation of a federal officer, after the FBI received a tip from a print shop owner.
One man committed suicide after years of agony. The criminal left bomb supplies in his trunk as he went to commit another felony. In Kimberlin’s early adulthood he was a drug dealer, perjurer, suspect in a murder, he was suspected of having an inappropriate relationship with a pre-teen. Police believed the end of that relationship precipitated the death of the girl’s grandmother, which was possibly the reason Kimberlin planted bombs. Later, apparently in a bid to toss off the moniker of pedophile, he married a woman whose birth year is be different on two different legal documents. She was young.
After leaving prison, Kimberlin eventually tried to “go legit” as a left-wing activist, but has found this difficult. He has lied to courts about being assaulted and stalked, and he has used his own family as pawns in a struggle to punish those who truthfully write about him. He tried to get his wife committed, and she was briefly in handcuffs after his testimony to a judge. Much of this is from his court papers and his AUTHORIZED biography.
Yeah, I guess it does sound like a tabloid, or even a soap opera.
Moral of the story? You can run from your past, but not the internet. If Wikipedia deletes the article, others will republish the truth. Ten years from now, Google Brett Kimberlin, and you’ll still find the truth.
