Liberal protest group offers 'bounties' for info on where conservative justices are located | Washington Examiner
Justices Brett Kavanaugh, Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Amy Coney Barrett, and Chief Justice John Roberts are being targeted by a group offering cash for their locations.

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


A liberal protest group is offering cash to anyone who sees the conservative justices of the Supreme Court and provides their location.

The justices targeted by the group ShutDownDC are John Roberts, Brett Kavanaugh, Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, and Amy Coney Barrett. The group tweeted that it is willing to give "$50 to anyone who gives a confirmed sighting and $200 if the Justice or Justices are in the same area 30 minutes after their location is given."


DC Service Industry Workers... If you see Kavanaugh, Alito, Thomas, Gorsuch, Coney Barrett or Roberts DM us with the details!
We'll venmo you $50 for a confirmed sighting and $200 if they're still there 30 mins after your message. https://t.co/xXWZ5JZiE7
— ShutDownDC (@ShutDown_DC) July 8, 2022

All six of the justices being targeted ruled in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization that Mississippi can maintain its law banning abortion after 15 weeks of gestation on June 24.

On Wednesday night, Kavanaugh was forced to exit through a back door while dining in downtown Washington after abortion rights protesters showed up.

Twitter, the platform on which ShutDownDC announced its "bounty," does not allow users to "engage in the targeted harassment of someone, or incite other people to do so."

ShutDownDC previously held a protest against the Supreme Court on June 13, one of the court's decision days. The group's protest, titled "Shut Down SCOTUS," intended to blockade the streets around the Supreme Court to protest against the impending decision regarding Roe v. Wade .

ShutDownDC has not responded to the Washington Examiner's request for comment.

You should have someone explain the SCOTUS ruling to you since you have CLEARLY misunderstood it.

Are liberals really that stupid? Chasing a SCOTUS around is about as effective as going out and yelling at the sky. If they had two brain cells to rub together they should know to go to the "State" houses with strict abortion laws and protest there.

Just the ones who have group tantrums and call them "protests".

That assumes the purpose of their actions is to affect change rather than simply express their "feelings".

Can't think of any other way to affect change in a life-long fascist appointee.

The right wingers on SCOTUS just seriously pissed off way over half the country.

Maybe they should learn that fact the hard way and just barricade at home.

What they just did to the EPA gained them many more enemies as well.

Okay, who are you claiming is a life-long fascist, and what do you base the claim on?

People will get over it in time. Justices shouldn't take popular opinion into consideration when forming legal opinions.

Maybe they should learn that fact the hard way and just barricade at home.

Or maybe 'protestors' can start to act like decent human beings and stop harassing Justices just because they don't like one or two decisions.

What they just did to the EPA gained them many more enemies as well.

Many are happy that SCOTUS is basically calling for Congress to do their jobs instead of relegating so much to federal agencies.

Maybe some of those left wing protesters harassing; chasing; and trying to kill Justices should receive the same treatment as Ashli Babbitt.

They are all trying to forcefully coerce government.

They are all committing sedition. 

They deserve nothing less if our justice system is truly fair.

Do what liberals want or you better lock the house down like it's The Purge?  Right.  Because that's not fascist or anything.

i think it could get interesting , especially from the perspective of the business owner whose business is being affected . i can think of a couple ways this could backfire on those wanting and trying to enlist those servers to call in where these people are .

The majority of servers are ethical people and wouldn't risk losing their jobs in high-priced restaurants over something that may or may not have any effect on them. Most servers wouldn't be so childish.

Good way to lose your job if caught . and people have lost them for less. 

 But your on the right track as to what i was thinking . 

say a business owner decides to offer a "counter bounty " affecting any server that does take up that bounty offered , say $75 bucks cash on the spot to anyone that reports a co worker for doing that , and if its coroberated , another $200 bucks in their paycheck after the server reported is fired for cause .

 Might just find out who your real friends are in that situation .

As much as I disagree with the conservative judges on this issue, I disagree even more with such threats and acts of intimidation being taken against the Justices, or against any persons in authoritative positions.  It should be no surprise that such actions are useless and will tend to cause the reverse of what was intended, i.e. to strengthen their resolve of those who are intimidated, rather than cause a change.  IMO such threats reflect that evolution has not yet peaked and some people act like wild animals, making America look like a primitive third world country.  In a democratic nation, people have the right to vote their feelings, and a majority should determine the outcome.  

Before the conservatives on this site get puffed up, I think that the January 6th rampage was as disgusting as intimidating the Justices.

What about the 2020 riots? 

Far more damage, loss of life, and intimidation occurred during those riots then on Jan 6th. Big difference is the charging of the Jan 6th rioters as compared to the 2020 rioters; and the current wack jobs going after justices.

I'm a peaceful person and wish everyone in the world could live in peace. I despise riots, especially those causing harm to persons or physical damage, whether they be in Seattle, Washington D.C., Hong Kong, Kunming.  As I noted in my previous comment, obviously too many people have not yet evolved above the level of wild animals.

Bullshit.

Can prove you wrong easily.

Nine of the people killed during protests were demonstrators taking part in Black Lives Matter protests. Two were conservatives killed after pro-Trump “patriot rallies”. All but one were killed by fellow citizens.

Dave Patrick Underwood, 53, California: Underwood was shot May 30 while on guard duty outside a federal courthouse in Oakland and was one of two officers targeted in a drive-by shooting amid nearby protests. 
James Scurlock, 22, Nebraska: A violent encounter with a white bar owner, Jake Gardner, during a protest in Omaha on May 30 led to the death of 22-year-old Scurlock, who is black. Surveillance footage shows Scurlock jumping on Gardner; the Douglas County Attorney’s Office determined that Garner acted in self-defense and he will not face charges. 

Such peaceful protesters./S

Sigh, come on, don't pull this shit. Disagreeing and being angry is fine, but don't start playing the same game as the other extremists because in the end you are basically advocating the same thing as them. 

That being said, with their decision that guns should be even easier for Americans to obtain, and by contrast gun violence should increase, I wouldn't shed a tear if a few of them were victims of their own rulings. 

If the constant threat of gun violence is good for the rest of us, especially cops, why not them?

So why is that the cities with the most stringent gun laws have the most gun crime? Could it be that criminals don't follow the law?

Removing guns from law abiding citizens isn't going to do one damn bit of good. The illegal gun trade will be overjoyed by it; as they will become the only means of getting a firearm.

Funny that the picture used in the article has nothing to do with the Supreme Court. When Trump took the Oath of Office, this gal got hysterical and fell to her knees screaming NOOOO and somebody took her picyure! Now she has to live with that photo the rest of her life as a constant reminder equating to the craziness of the leftist liberal mindset in whatever other people want to use it for. But then again who knows, maybe the gal will send copies out as Christmas cards./sarc
