Perhaps we should have seen it coming. Yesterday, on the same morning that our own Bill Schmalfeldt had expected to receive his nolle prosequis and get on with his life, someone called in a bomb threat to the Carroll County Courthouse.

Sheriff’s officials said Circuit Court officials got an anonymous phone call around 8:30 a.m. claiming that an explosive device had been left in one of the court buildings. Courthouse officials said the threat was not specific.

The Circuit and District court buildings were evacuated and closed for the day.

Traffic within the immediate area, including Court Street, Greenwood Avenue, Willis Street and the surrounding alleyways, was detoured while law enforcement personnel inspected the buildings using bomb-detecting K-9 teams and X-ray equipment.

We will continue to report this story. In the meantime, we also took note of Los Angeles Deputy DA John Patrick Frey aka @Patterico’s blog post last night which blames Schmalfeldt for the failed SWATting of Erik Rush. Breezing past the delirious connections of his conspiracy theory, the paid public servant who doxed Nadia Naffe for reporting her rape attempt by James O’Keefe dismisses all objections as “conspiracy theory.” Furthermore, this man who puts people in prison for a living insists that via Schmalfeldt, Brett Kimberlin is somehow responsible for the 911 dispatchers calling Rush to see if he was okay:

According to, an individual claiming to be Rush called Fort Collins police Monday at about 5 p.m., reporting that two men wielding AK-47 rifles were firing rounds inside his home. But with no additional calls reporting the gunshots and because the call came to 911 through a third-party relay service, police dispatchers were suspicious. Rush was contacted by police via his home phone and confirmed that the call was fake.

We expect Deputy DA Frey, who has power to get people executed by the state of California, to blame Schmalfeldt for yesterday morning’s bomb threat at any minute by ascribing an elaborate motive for Bill to delay his own vindication. In the meantime, here are a couple of the usual suspects chiming in:

Welcome to the new conspiracy theory, same as the old conspiracy theory. Now with extra stupid! We challenge Mr. Frey, paid servant of the people of Los Angeles, to obtain the 911 audio of Rush’s phone call so that the voice thereon may be compared to Schmalfeldt’s podcast voice, and perhaps some other voices besides. Aaron Walker should release the audio of his own alleged SWATing for the same purposes.
