    Police Announce Crackdown on Protesters Outside Supreme Court Justices’ Homes

    Published on

    During demonstrations, the Montgomery County, Maryland, Police Department will enforce laws against picketing private dwellings and unruly conduct.

    “MCPD supports the first amendment right to protest, however anyone violating the disorderly conduct statute, may be subject to arrest,” the police department tweeted on Thursday.

    The MCPD stated on their website, “There are content neutral Montgomery County Code and Maryland Law provisions that restrict protesting and assembling in a private neighborhood, as well as disturbing the peace.”

    The declaration comes months after pro-abortion groups began protesting the court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade by assembling outside the residences of Supreme Court justices.

    The twice-weekly appearance of protesters in front of Brett Kavanaugh’s Maryland residence became a problem for his neighbors.

    A neighbor stated one month ago, “It’s a horrific experience. They have drummers. They have a megaphone, and they chant. They yell all kinds of things. … They have told neighbors, ‘F*** you, f*** your children,’ things like that. And so they’re abusive toward the neighbors and intimidating.”

    Around 1 a.m. on June 8, police apprehended a California man who was loitering near Brett Kavanaugh’s residence.

    Nicholas John Roske was charged with attempted murder after police discovered that he was armed with a firearm, a knife, a hammer, a crowbar, pepper spray, duct tape, and more items.

    Supreme Court Marshal Gail Curley sent a letter to Maryland Governor Larry Hogan urging that he enforce state laws prohibiting picketing in residential areas in response to the frequent protests.

    Curley’s letter to the governor read, “You recently stated that you were ‘deeply concerned’ that ‘hundreds of demonstrators have recently chosen to picket Supreme Court Justices at their homes in … Maryland,”

    “Since then, protest activity at the Justices’ homes, as well as threatening activity, has only increased.”

    More on this story via The Wester Journal:

    The MCPD told CNN that it would “not necessarily clear protesters outside of justices’ homes for simply gathering, but will enforce statutes against disturbing the peace.”

    “For example, protesting quietly or silently is fine, but police will not allow bullhorns, drums or any loud behavior,” CNN reported.

    The MCPD announcement comes as Twitter on Thursday suspended the account of the pro-abortion group Ruth Sent Us for doxing multiple Supreme Court justices, according to Fox News.

    Ruth Sent Us has been notorious for urging protesters to congregate near the homes of the justices. The group was also banned from Facebook last month, although it has evaded the ban by creating another page, Fox reported.
