I don't know what to say Updated a couple of times

This is seriously a bad day for free speech as Aaron Walker is arrested over bogus accusations of having broken the harassment "peace order" that was granted to Convicted Domestic Terrorist and Perjurer Brett Kimberlin.  One possible bright spot is that Kimberlin appears to be unable to resist gloating and is helping prove that various social media accounts, that he claimed had nothing to do with him other than that they showed support for him, are indeed his or belong to those *very* closely allied to him.

Update: R.S. McCain has a report that Walker has been released.  He is still charged with having abridged the "peace order" but is on his own recognizance at this time.  My prayers are with him and his family that they remain safe and that justice be done in this case.

Update II: Apparently the charge in Walker's arrest was "2nd degree assault" which commenters at both Ace of Spades HQ and (I think) Jawa Report said was very unusual as it typically results in a fine.  What seems even stranger is that the supposed assault is the one caught on courthouse security footage from (months?) ago and the courts own footage shows that no such thing happened.  I'm still keeping Walker and his family in prayer as justice is far from being served at this point.

Update III: Well, according to this post by Patterico my information was correct the first time.  Apparently the deputy arresting Aaron Walker was under the impression that it was due to the dismissed assault charges but was incorrect.  Patterico also links to a post at Investors .com which seems to agree that this is a case of suppression of speech.
