Did Brett Kimberlin Break Federal Law (18 USC 241)?

A frightening story of a modern day high-tech Brownshirt can be found here.

"At 12:35 a.m. on July 1, 2011, sheriff’s deputies pounded on my front door and rang my doorbell. They shouted for me to open the door and come out with my hands up.  When I opened the door, deputies pointed guns at me and ordered me to put my hands in the air."

What does this have to do with elections?  A person who is mentioned in the article linked below writes for the Brad Blog, a blog which relentlessly attacked Bush administration Voting Section staffers by name, in collaboration with employees within the Voting Section.

The story about the SWATTING and intimidation is shocking.  It might also be illegal.

18 USC 241 prohibits intimidation against Americans for exercising free speech rights.  The statute says:

If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same; They shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both.

Read the astonishing story how a writer for the Brad Blog is included in the story about a person who may have engaged in a nationwide campaign of physical intimidation by placing false 911 calls sending midnight SWAT teams to the homes of conservatives.

I'll have more on this shortly.

    This type of intimidation needs to be stopped. If in fact he did break the law, he must be brought to justice!

    My self and my chldrens' constitutional rights were violated when we were threatened to be arrested by a judge and an sheriff if we entered a courthouse to attend a child support contempt proceeding against the guy that raped and impregnated my 12 year old daughter. It is a clear violation of 18 U.S.C. 241 and 242. Go to http://glennhess.org/HessLyingToMedia.htm and read the details. The problem is not that a crime has been committed, but that the FBI and U.S. Dept. of Justice will not do anything about it because (1) they don't have the resources and (2) it's not a high profile case like Rodney King where 241 and 242 were used to his benefit.
