Conservative Supreme Court justices have been the target of increasingly volatile leftist mobs ever since the decision to overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision.
While the decision did not outlaw abortion, it did return the issue to the state level in adherence with the Tenth Amendment, which explicitly endows states with the power to legislate individual matters that are not explicitly addressed in the Constitution.
However, this reality has not stopped the mainstream media from effectively painting the decision as an effective ban on abortion, which has subsequently galvanized the extreme left into harassing justices wherever they can gain access, including private homes.
Even worse, the media began to drum up hatred two months before the decision, after a draft of the decision was leaked to the public, a move that many have labeled as “unprecedented.”
At this juncture in time, the leaker has yet to be identified, which raises a host of other questions, especially since several justices understandably face increasingly rabid, pro-abortion protestors.
Fortunately, legislation was miraculously passed that protects justices’ personal residences from being subject to harassment, and police departments across Maryland, as well as other locations, aim to ensure protestors are kept at bay.
The enforcement powers are reinforced by the fact that several state laws already prevent individuals from disturbing the “peace” of people in their private homes.
“The Montgomery County Department of Police is committed to preserving the First Amendment rights of all individuals,” the Montgomery Police Department asserted.
However, the department also clarified that the right to “peaceful assembly” does not intrude on someone’s right to privacy and peace in their personal, private home.
“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 police department added pointedly.
