Brett Kimberlin (born 1954) is an Indiana drug dealer, domestic terrorist and convicted felon, a liberal agitator with an affinity for suing conservative bloggers. Kimberlin organized the tax-exempt 'Justice Through Music Project' and the Velvet Revolution. He has connections to George Soros' financial institutions such as the Tides Foundation. More tax exempt donations come from the Barbara Streisand Foundation.
SWATTing has entered the American lexicon and is directly linked back to Kimberlin, which he denies involvement. SWATTing involves placing a 911 call to police, impersonating the home owner by claiming to be holding the family hostage at gunpoint. The police then arrive to your home in force. Families and neighbors are intimidated by the sheer surprise terror scene that was all a hoax to begin with. Other tactics include individually harassing conservative bloggers' family members and lying under oath to have a conservative blogger arrested.
