The Supreme Court’s chief security officer has penned letters requesting that top Maryland officials direct police to enforce laws “that squarely prohibit picketing at the homes of Supreme Court Justices” following weeks of protests outside their houses in Montgomery County.
In two separate letters reviewed by The Washington Post, one addressed to Gov. Larry Hogan (R) and another to Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich (D), Supreme Court Marshal Gail Curley says protests and “threatening activity” has increased since May at justices’ homes in Maryland.

“Peaceful, lawful protest and assembly is a cornerstone of our democracy,” the document on the county police website reads.
What the protesters are doing doesn't sound threatening just a nuisance and it is short lived in time.
When we have the Right wing bozo's protesting and bodily threatening people at homes, businesses, and government facilities and that is okay. Then I say what's good for the goose is good for the gander.
