Nicholas John Roske was armed with a gun, ammunition, a knife, pepper spray, a screwdriver, zip ties, and other gear when he was arrested near Brett Kavanaugh’s home with plans on assassinating the Supreme Court Justice
Nicholas John Roske was arrested down the street from Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home loaded up with everything a madman would need to assassinate someone they don’t agree with. This is just the latest instance of violence and intimidation toward pro-lifers since the unprecedented Supreme Court draft opinion on Roe V Wade leaked last month.
Nicholas John Roske, 26, of Simi Valley, California, was carrying a gun, ammunition, a knife, pepper spray, a screwdriver, zip ties, and other gear when he was arrested by Montgomery County Police Department officers in the early morning hours Wednesday, according to a criminal complaint.
Roske, 26, of Simi Valley, California, is facing federal charges of attempted murder. He appeared before Judge Timothy J. Sullivan at the U.S. District Court in Greenbelt, Maryland Wednesday afternoon. He was found in the early morning hours on Wednesday carrying a gun, ammunition, a knife, pepper spray, a screwdriver, zip ties, and other gear
Roske, who is charged with the attempted murder of a federal judge, told police that he was upset about Kavanaugh’s positions on Roe v. Wade and the Second Amendment, the complaint said.
Amid this latest attempt on a pro-lifers life, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was questioned by reporters about whether our Supreme Court Justices are safe or not. She got huffy and mad about the question.
As Pelosi left her weekly press conference, she stopped to address a reporter who shouted: “You said the justices are protected, but there was an attempt on Justice Kavanaugh’s life.”
“And he’s protected,” Pelosi snapped back. “He’s protected. The justices are protected.”
Congressional Republicans have urged the House to approve a Senate-passed bill that would give the nation’s leading jurists and their families the same level of security as legislators and White House officials. The Senate passed the bill by unanimous consent, but the measure has languished before the House for the past month.
Within a week of the leak, vandals targeted at least five pro-life, crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) across the country and at least one pro-life organization.
“More of this. May these people never know a moment of peace or safety until they rot in the ground,” Caroline Reilly, a reporter for Rewire News Group, tweeted from a now deleted account after vandals threw a Molotov cocktail into the headquarters of the Wisconsin pro-life organization Wisconsin Family Action.
On Tuesday a pro-life Christian pregnancy center in Buffalo, New York, was targeted by vandals and lit on fire.
After Roske’s arrest, the group Ruth Sent Us, a pro-abortion group that has coordinated many of the protests since the Supreme Court leak, vowed to protest again “peacefully” outside Kavanaugh’s home Wednesday night.
The group later shared a tweet containing Kavanaugh’s home address.
What makes this whole situation even worse is the fact that a majority of corporate media is not covering it. A justice of the Supreme Court is targeted for assassination, the assassin is arrested down the street from his home, and this isn’t top news?
I suppose since Kavanaugh is a republican who values an unborn child’s life he doesn’t matter?
