See for Yourself: Bob Malm Tries to Overcome First Amendment by Portraying Protests as a Form of Threat
Here’s a great email from Bob Malm, in which he deliberately tries to conflate First Amendment-protected protests on public property with threatening speech. At the same time, he tries to keep his posturing at arm’s length, by assigning the issue to his wife, Leslie, and unnamed “others.”
Of course, deliberately mischaracterizing aspects of this conflict is part and parcel of the whole Dysfunctional Bob and Jeff “Sugarland” Chiow bag of tricks—just check out Jeff’s most recent motion with the Alexandria Circuit Court in which he lies and claims I have violated the protective order. Attorney ethics issues, anyone? Christian ethics issues?
Bob Malm and Donald Trump: The First Amendment only applies to speech they like.

Yet another email from Bob Malm devoid of any pastoral presence.
See for Yourself: Bob Malm Urges Local Police Department to Abrogate First Amendment and Suppress Free Speech
This one is good. Leaving aside the fact that it clearly reveals Bob Malm as almost frantic to shut down criticism, we see Bob attempting to coax the Alexandria police department into rounding up protesters.
So what next? Bob accuses you of “defamation,” and “slander,” without knowing what the words even mean, and the police swoop down and drag you off the streets?

Here’s an interesting one—an email between Bob Malm and Dennis Andreas, Commander of the Patrol Support Division of the Alexandria Police Department.
Curiously, during discovery Bob was asked to provide copies of all relevant emails, but this wasn’t included. One wonders why that was. Could it be that Bob is not being honest? Did he withhold materials from discovery? What does that say about Bob’s integrity? Or attorney Jeff Chiow’s integrity?
It also doesn’t look like Jeff Chiow is doing a good job of communicating to his client that, once someone is no longer a member of the church, there is no intra-church privilege against defamation. That’s one thing about Bob—whether as a spectator at his son’s sporting events, or in his correspondence with public officials, it’s usually his big mouth that gets him in trouble.
Meanwhile, it’s good to see that the City of Alexandria provides free legal and tactical consulting to churches.
