Americans were shocked when a man was arrested outside Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home.
Reports indicate the armed man had made threats to the justice, in the aftermath of the document leak.
And now, it appears that this person is about to face serious consequences.
From CBS News:
A federal grand jury on Wednesday indicted Nicholas John Roske on federal charges of attempting to murder Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
The 26-year-old Roske was charged with one count of attempting to murder a justice of the United States. If convicted as charged, Roske faces a maximum sentence of life in federal prison. An initial appearance has not yet been scheduled.
The man arrested outside Justice Kavanaugh’s home has been charged with one count of attempted murder of a justice of the United States.
The severe charge carries with it a maximum penalty of life in prison.
As horrific as this event has been, at least the federal government is taking it as seriously as it should.
This figure needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Otherwise, more unwell individuals might be emboldened to do the same.
If this man is convicted and sentenced, it will send a message to the country: we do not tolerate threats to our justices.
This is critical, given recent events. Abortion activists have protested outside justices’ homes to influence their decisions on upcoming cases (a violation of federal law).
Previously, Justice Alito had to be moved to protective custody over a threat.
If the federal government does nothing, more terrible things might happen. This charge was necessary, to uphold the law and protect the Supreme Court.
