Last week, a pro-abortion man from California went to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s Maryland home with the intent to murder the justice.
Nicholas Roske, now known as the would-be killer, was planning to assassinate Kavanaugh as a result of news that Roe v Wade could likely be on the chopping block in the near future.
Before he could strike, Roske actually turned himself in just one street away from Kavanaugh’s home. Now, Montgomery County Police Chief Marcus Jones has revealed new details about Roske’s dark intentions and the reason he stopped short and called 911.
Townhall’s Julio Rosas reports:
Jones said the Roske took a taxi to the neighborhood where Kavanaugh lives with his family in Maryland and changed his plan after noticing the U.S. Marshals who were guarding the home. Kavanaugh’s house, along with the residences of the other conservative justices, has been the site of constant protests from pro-abortion advocates after their addresses were leaked online.
“At which point in time he began to walk down the street to actually — to see the residence where he observed the U.S. Marshals, who were actually there guarding the U.S. Supreme Court justice and his family. So the individual decided to continue to walk by, but in the meantime he texted his sister to tell her what his intentions were…She convinced him to actually to pick up the phone and call 911 to basically turn himself in and not to do what he had planned to do,” Jones explained.
Jones said Roske had a suitcase with him that was filled with varying pieces of equipment to help in his plot, noting Roske did not even bring any other clothing items with him. The U.S. Marshals noticed Roske when he walked by Kavanaugh’s home but did not have any indication at that time of what his intentions were.
After Roske made the 9-1-1 call to turn himself in, he was not on the same street where Kavanaugh lived. Montgomery County police officers were able to locate Roske and take him into custody.
