Pro-abortion activists took to the streets outside the home of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito on Monday night to protest the draft decision that was leaked last week in the case Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health, which would effectively overturn both Roe v Wade and Planned Parenthood v Casey.
Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin allowed the protest, chanting, and disruption to continue, saying that he was "monitoring" the situation.
Activists chanted "Alito is a coward" and "abort the court." In response to this threatening behavior, Youngkin, who ran on a platform of getting tough on crime, was soft on the protestors.
When running for office, "ensuring safe neighborhoods" was at the forefront of Youngkin's mind, and he stated that he wanted Virginia to be "the best place to live, work, and raise a family."
For doing nothing other than "monitoring" the situation, and for not clearing the activists from before the justsice's home, Youngkin, who came into office on a red wave in November, was roundly mocked.
Will Chamberlain suggested simply that "jail" could put and end to the protests in front of the justice's home.
Other's posted the law, which clearly states that it is a crime, albeit a misdemeanor, to disrupt the peace outside another's home.
The comments on Youngkin's post about "monitoring" the protests repeatedly brought up the fact that there is a law in place in Virginia that could quell the protests threatening a justice at his home, if only Youngkin had seen fit to enforce it.
Police were present, but despite there being laws against threatening judges, as well as against "picketing" outside a private home to either disrupt or threaten to disrupt "any individual's right to tranquility in his home," Youngkin allowed the protest to proceed.
Florida Press Secretary Christina Pushaw was curious to know if a permit had been issued for a protest in that location.
