Maryland police to begin enforcing the law outside Supreme Court justices’ homes

After more than two months of unchecked pro-abortion unrest outside the homes of Supreme Court justices, the police are finally stepping in.

Cops in Montgomery County, Maryland, said they will start enforcing laws against disturbing the peace, according to reports.

Complaints received

The cops said they have received many complaints about noise from the justices’ neighbors, whose streets have been occupied since the May leak of the Supreme court opinion that overturned Roe v. Wade. 

Protests can continue but have to stay quiet, the Montgomery County Police said.

“Please note: MCPD supports the first amendment right to protest, however anyone violating the disorderly conduct statute, may be subject to arrest. Applicable laws regarding protests in Montgomery County have been added to the MCPD website,” the police tweeted.

This comes after the head of Supreme Court security, Gail Curley, pleaded with Maryland and Virginia officials to enforce state and county laws against unlawful picketing.

Maryland governor Larry Hogan, a Republican, responded by claiming that Curley’s request was likely unconstitutional.

Biden turns a blind eye

Hogan pointed to a delayed response from U.S. attorney general Merrick Garland to a request from Hogan and Virginia governor Glenn Youngkin asking the feds “to enforce the clear and unambiguous federal statutes on the books that prohibit picketing at judges’ residences.”

“A month later, hours after an assassination attempt on Justice Kavanaugh, the Department of Justice finally responded, declining to enforce the laws.”

Republicans in Congress have also blasted the sluggish response from Garland, who has not hesitated to crack down on the right with a vengeance.

President Biden, who is Catholic, has repeatedly encouraged the mobs while conflating their intimidation tactics with peaceful “protest.” He has also been silent about a deranged man’s attempted assassination of Justice Brett Kavanaugh in June.

While it’s good to see local police finally stepping up, a mob gathering quietly outside a judge’s home is still a threat. “Protesters” shouldn’t be menacing the families of federal judges, period.
