Governor Youngkin is taking the safety of the Supreme Court Justices who live in Virginia very seriously.
As previously reported, Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito and his family have moved to an undisclosed location for their safety after a wave of threats from the left. This comes after Supreme Court documents, penned by Alito, were leaked to the press and seemed to indicate that the Supreme Court was planning on overturning Roe v. Wade. Many of the Supreme Court Justices call Virginia their home, and Governor Youngkin has taken a hands on approach to ensure their safety.
“Virginia State Police will assist federal and local law enforcement as needed in order to ensure the safety of our citizens, including Supreme Court Justices, who call Virginia home,” Youngkin said in a tweet.

Governor Youngkin sprung into action after a reports that protesters were organizing outside of Alito’s home, and said his administration has been “coordinating” with the Fairfax County Police Department and the Virginia State Police in order to ensure no violence.
“Virginia State Police were closely monitoring, fully coordinated with Fairfax County and near the protests,” Youngkin said.
The leaked document has reignited the hotly contested issue of Roe v. Wade, and has sparked countless protests and counter protests all over the country. While the opinion is still not final, hopefully, with Governor Younkin’s help, the Supreme Court Justices will be able to peacefully make it to the day when the decision can be made.
