CV NEWS FEED // The website of radical pro-abortion group Ruth Sent Us went down Wednesday morning after an armed gunman was arrested near Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home.
The gunman told police that he was angered by the leaked Supreme Court opinion draft indicating the Court is poised to strike down Roe vs. Wade, and that he intended to go the Kavanaugh’s house and murder him.
Ruth Sent Us has aggressively called for protests outside the homes of pro-life justices since the leak in early April. The controversial group also published the addresses of the justices’ homes.
I informed @RuthSentUs over an hour ago via DM that their map generates precise house number addresses for two Supreme Court Justices. The DM I sent is below with the names and address redacted for obvious reasons. I have not heard back and the map has not been changed. pic.twitter.com/FbOy92uxf2— Jeryl Bier (@JerylBier) May 6, 2022
The group, which gained notoriety for storming Catholic churches to protest during Masses and threatening to burn the Eucharist, responded to the news of the gunman by tweeting: “We are committed to Non-violence.”
They also expressed skepticism about the details of the arrest, however. “Oh, what was this ‘weapon’ the ‘California man’ had?” they asked. “If it was a gun or even a knife, police would say so.”
Police have in fact confirmed that the suspect was in possession of a firearm, a knife, pepper spray, and burglary tools.
In another tweet, Ruth Sent Us vowed to protest outside of Kavanaugh’s home again that night.
In light of Wednesday’s news of a gunman stalking Kavanaugh’s home, many have criticized House Democrats for blocking a bill that would bolster security for members of the Supreme Court.
The bill, introduced by Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) almost immediately after the leak, would have provided police protection to all nine justices and their families, as well as other officers of the Court when deemed necessary.
