“A California man is facing a charge of attempted murder after his arrest near the home of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Nicholas John Roske, 26, had planned to murder a Supreme Court justice and was armed with a pistol and tactical knife, court documents said. … According to an affidavit filed in US District Court, Mr Roske was spotted by two US Deputy Marshals while getting out of a taxi in front of a Supreme Court justice’s home. Carrying a suitcase and a backpack, Mr Roske turned to walk down the street. Soon after, local emergency services took a call from a man who identified himself as Mr Roske. Mr Roske said he was having suicidal thoughts, had a gun and had come from California to ‘kill a specific United States Supreme Court justice.’ Local police officers were sent to the justice’s home and arrested Mr Roske.” (06/08/22)
