Even Kavanaugh’s pro-choice neighbors are over the protests outside their homes
It turns out his pro-choice neighbors are over it.

Nothing like Pissing off even those that agree they didn't like the Supreme Court Ruling on Abortion.

The "Left" really doesn't care about the ones they need for votes !

As long as the "left" can be their usual annoying loud self absorbed self, at least they'll still be happy !

Since the Dobbs decision was first leaked, Supreme Court  Justice Brett Kavanaugh  has faced a constant onslaught of hate: an assassination attempt, harassment at dinner, and protesters demonstrating weekly outside his private home.

It turns out his pro-choice neighbors are over it. Two months into the protests, Kavanaugh’s neighbors told  the  Washington Post  that the children on their street are now afraid to leave their homes. Parents are worried too, especially as protesters become “more belligerent, using lots of foul language in their chants,” said a resident. Another resident, Lyric Winik, said protesters have called her and other neighbors “fascists” for requesting that they keep the volume down.

At least one resident was initially on board. Emily Strulson told the outlet she actually joined a pro-abortion march last fall in which protesters walked through the town and finished at Kavanaugh’s house. She became uncomfortable and headed home when “language turned from issue-based to personal.”

Montgomery County law enforcement and the U.S. Marshals Service remain at the protests, in recent weeks bringing decibel-detection meters in response to increased complaints about the noise. Police have warned protesters to keep the volume down and to continue moving to avoid laws that ban “picketing” a private residence. On July 13, the Montgomery County Department of Police  tweeted , “MCPD supports the first amendment right to protest, however anyone violating the disorderly conduct statute, may be subject to arrest.”

Though they no longer use noise amplification devices, protesters continue to show up each Wednesday night despite residents filing complaints and notifying police. One told  Bethesda Beat  magazine two weeks ago that Montgomery County's characterization of the protests as peaceful was “embarrassing.”

“Ask anyone on our street that lives here or has been here when they’re happening, and they will tell you the same,” she said. “It’s horrendous and insane that this is allowed to happen at our private homes.”

Protesters' failure to respect boundaries is a turnoff. Winik told the Washington Post it is likely “hurting their own cause.”

You don’t have to agree with Kavanaugh to condemn the personally targeted vitriol that he and other justices have received. It’s wrong to harass someone at his or her private residence, especially when there are public places — for example, the court itself — to make your message known. Kavanaugh’s neighbors, at least, recognize they should be able to live together without letting their differences rise to hostility.

Police need to enforce the existing ban on this residential disruption, which not only violates Kavanaugh’s privacy but also makes life difficult for the families and children in his entire neighborhood.

These protests are very unfair to the local residents.  Some years ago, early on a Saturday morning, about 50 protestors arrived at the house of a World Bank or IMF executive that lived several houses down from me. They used bull horns which of course woke up anyone trying to sleep in.  Grass was trampled and lawns were littered.  This went on for several weekends.  

The protests had one positive effect after to pissing off the residents.  The World Bank executive hosted an awesome party for the neighborhood as his way of apologizing for the protests.

Canadian truckers did the same thing and were cheered on by many an NT former 'conservative'.
