Even after a man was arrested who allegedly intended to assassinate Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the Department of Justice appears to be allowing protesters to congregate outside of his home.
This week, protesters rallied in front of the justice’s home and yelled pro-abortion slogans. The demonstrators also went to Chief Justice John Roberts’ house.
Nicholas John Roske, a California resident, was arrested near Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s house in Maryland this week after he had allegedly gone there to murder the sitting judge so he could preserve Roe v. Wade.
According to the Washington Post, a California man was detained by police after telling them he wanted to murder Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh near his Maryland home.
“Two people informed on the situation said that the evidence so far suggests that the man was enraged about a leaked draft of an opinion from the Supreme Court indicating that the court is prepping to overturn Roe v. Wade,” according to The Washington Post.
The White House said that President Biden “utterly condemns the conduct of this individual and is grateful to law enforcement for swiftly capturing him.”
The White House statement continued: “As the President has stated on numerous occasions, public officials — including judges — should be able to do their jobs without fear of personal harm or that of their families. And any acts of violence, threats thereof or attempts to browbeat justices have no place in our society. He’s said it himself; his spokespeople have made it clear from the pulpit.”
The Democrat-controlled U.S. House recently delayed a bi-partisan bill that would increase security for sitting Supreme Court justices.
“If these allegations are true, an assassination attempt on a sitting judge or something similar,” Senate Minority Leader McConnell said on the floor. “This is precisely the type of event that many people feared would be allowed by the lax enforcement of court rules and norms.”
