    Maybe he'll rethink his position on the 2nd Amendment and self defense.

    Never vacation in a place where savages still carry machetes.

    slightly off topic but not too much, McCartney wrote Band On The Run partially based on him and Linda getting robbed at knifepoint by some savages while in Jamacia I believe

    Why dont supreme court justices get secret service protection? Any one of them being gone could drastically affect the political makeup of the country.

    Pretty sure the Secret Service is only involved with the Executive Branch. For example, they don't protect congressmen either. The Supreme Court would have to create its own agency to protect justices.

    I'm pretty sure the US Marshall's service handles judges, particularly (only?) federal judges.

    SCOTUS judges don't get 24/7 protection like Presidents do. Well, really, nobody gets 24/7 protection like Presidents/former Presidents/Vice Presidents/families do. The Speaker Of The House doesn't have full time protection, as far as I'm aware.

    The US Marshall's service would have to reorganize and have a full-time protective detail for SCOTUS members for what you're looking for, and I don't think that's in the cards.

    If there's a specific threat to particular judges, the Marshalls will put on a detail, but they're not full time nannies. Except for WITSEC people, I guess.

    I heard they found the tapes later when the studio engineer was found to have locked himself in a tube station.

    They'll never learn. 'The Scenery is so pretty!' until some savage has a rusted up knife at your throat. Never vacation in a part of the world that's undeveloped. Tossing a resort onto the edge of it doesn't make it a developed nation.

    I just think the 9 judges have such a powerful sway on our political makeup and are unique b/c of their lifetime appts. that it would be in the interests of left and right to protect them. The timing of a SC justice retiring is a very politically calculated move and we shouldn't allow some nut case that supports an ideology from rushing a judge into retirement.

    Jamaica is a beautiful country if you stay near the resorts.

    Going outside those areas is like leaving the wire in hostile territory during war.
