Washington Takes EXTREME Measures To Protect Supreme Court Amid Controversy
(TruthandLiberty.com) – On Monday, May 2, POLITICO sent shockwaves throughout the country after publishing a Supreme Court draft opinion suggesting Justice Samuel Alito favors overturning “Roe v. Wade.” That evening, pro-choice demonstrators showed up at the footsteps of the Supreme Court to protest the news. On Wednesday, DC officials erected a large, non-scalable fence around the Supreme Court to keep protestors a safe distance from the building.
The controversy is an emotional powder keg for the Left. On Monday, Democrats fanned the flames. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) called the draft opinion an abomination.

On Tuesday, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) joined the screaming crowd at the footsteps of the high court. Soon after, Washington, DC, police activated Civil Disturbance Units through Sunday so they could quickly respond to First Amendment activity if needed.
On Tuesday, Justice Samuel Alito, who authored the draft opinion, canceled his appearance at Thursday’s 5th Circuit Court of Appeals judicial conference. Alito reviews emergency appeals for the 5th Circuit. The reason for his cancellation is unknown. Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Clarence Thomas are scheduled to appear at the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals judicial conference on Thursday and Friday. They have not announced cancellations. Justices typically meet with assigned circuit courts to review emergency appeals.
