Around 1:50 a.m. Wednesday morning, a gunman was arrested near the home of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in Maryland and taken into custody. According to sources familiar with the investigation, the suspect told officers he wanted to kill Judge Kavanaugh.
The man, who was described as being in his twenties, is believed to be from California. Early evidence suggests he was furious at the leak of the Supreme Court’s draft opinion regarding Roe v. Wade, as well as the recent series of mass shootings.
The suspect was in possession of a firearm, knife and burglary tools at the time of his arrest.
Police were reportedly tipped off that the individual could pose a threat to Kavanaugh, and the man was apprehended on a street near the judge’s home. He failed to break into Kavanaugh’s property.
“The man was armed and made threats against Justice Kavanaugh,” Supreme Court spokeswoman Patricia McCabe said. “He was transported to Montgomery County Police Department 2nd District.”
Since the leak of the document Roe v. Wade of the Supreme Court, the justices face serious threats, with protesters crowding outside their private homes in an attempt to intimidate them.
There have been numerous calls for violence against Supreme Court justices, including the murder of judges and their clerks and the burning down of the Supreme Court building. Unfortunately, these acts of violence are encouraged by left-leaning political leaders such as Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, who recently issued a “call to arms” regarding Roe v. Wade.
The president himself has backed the protests outside the judges’ homes, which pose a threat to themselves and their families.
