Justice Breyer Robbed by Machete-Wielding Intruder at West Indies Vacation Home

Fox News, February 13, 2012

Justice Stephen Breyer was robbed last week by a machete-wielding intruder at his vacation home in the West Indies, a Supreme Court spokeswoman said Monday.

The 73-year-old Breyer, wife Joanna and guests were confronted by the robber around 9 p.m. EST Thursday in the home Breyer owns on the Caribbean island of Nevis, spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said. The intruder took about $1,000 in cash and no one was hurt, Arberg said.

She said the robbery was reported to local authorities, but she did not know if an arrest has been made. The U.S. Marshals Service is assisting local authorities and the Supreme Court Police with the investigation, Marshals Service spokesman Jeff Carter said.

    This is one of those delightful men who is an ardent supporter of gun control.

    It sounds horrible to say this, but I’m glad to see his ignorance, his arrogant remarks about gun-owing citizens, and support for grossly abusive state and Federal laws are coming back to bite him in the rear.

    Maybe he’ll change his mind about these issues.

      He was once robbed in DC while jogging. He didn’t learn anything.

        Not Just Breyer—Three (!) Supreme Court Justices Attacked By Men Of No Particular Color
        By James Fulford on February 14, 2012 at 12:54pm

        I see on the Drudge Report that Justice Breyer was robbed at machete-point.

        This did not happen in the US, but on the island of Nevis, which is part of the West Indian nation state of St. Kitts And Nevis, population 50,314.

        There’s no description of the robber, he seems to have been of no particular shape, size, or (especially) color, the facts you always give on police description.

        Most  versions of the story online mention two previous cases of Supreme Court Justices being crime victims, David Souter beaten up while jogging in 2004, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg having her purse snatched in 1996.

        I looked up the contemporary descriptions of the attacks, and what do you know, they were victimized by men of no particular color as well!

          I was relieved to learn that the men who attacked three elderly Supreme Court justices had no color or race because for a minute I thought these might be racially motivated incidents.  

    • Not Bloody Likely!

      This unknowing little spoiled one will go on to think and believe but with added Security Measures of course, that non-white criminals aren’t really “criminals”, no, they’re just “oppressed”.

      Look Forward to More Foreign Aide of which some is sure to help pay for some sort of addition, renovation, whatever “upgrade” can be “legally” paid for by American Paid for, Aide.  Makes me sick as I’m sure does you.

    So, is Breyer a conservative now?  Or is he another anti-gun lefty living in a secured compound with armed guards while telling you that YOU do not have the right to defend yourself and your loved ones with deadly force. 

    It is exactly because of tyrannical judges such as Breyer that the Founding Fathers wrote the Second Amendment.  Breyer was the one who said:  “If you look at the values and historical record, you will see that the Founding Fathers never intended guns to go unregulated.”

    I’m sure Breyer chose to vacation in Nevis in the BVI because of its draconian British-style gun control laws, which makes it safe according to Breyer.

    In St Kitts & Nevis, the annual rate of firearm homicide per 100,000 population is 44.23

    In the US, the annual rate of firearm homicide per 100,000 population is 2.98.

    “The constitutions of most of our states (and of the United States) assert that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed; that they are entitled to freedom of person, freedom of religion, freedom of property and freedom of the press.” 

    –Thomas Jefferson 

    Not if Breyer has his way. 

    Remember:  SCOTUS is hanging on by a 5-4 thread, one more 0bama appointee and Commies such as Breyer, Sodamayor, Ginsberg and Souter WILL rule by judicial fiat.


  • Serves ya right ya scum bucket!

    I knew I was right.  The White Peoples only account for, what is it?  Seven, eight, at the absolute most, nine percent of the World’s Population?  I was right, nowhere can they hide.  I’m Happy!

    The more I read about this case, the angrier I get.

    The U.S. Marshals Service is assisting local authorities and the Supreme Court Police with the investigation, Marshals Service.

    Oh, really?  

    Will the U.S. Marshals Service and the Supreme Court Police help find the ARMED, violent home invasion robbers in gun-restrictive California that terrorized a family in California OR are those law enforcement branches only available to elites like Breyer and Sens. Feinstein and Boxer?

    Feb., 13, 2012, Humbolt Co. California:

    “The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office is seeking two unidentified male suspects after an Orick resident reported using a handgun to avert an attempted home invasion robbery early Sunday morning.”

    “The victims,  a 26-year-old female, a 35-year-old male and their three-year old child were asleep with their 3-year-old child when two adult males, approximately 5 feet, 10 inches tall and wearing all black, forced their way into the residence and into the bedroom. They said the suspects were armed with possibly a rifle or shotgun and a handgun.”

    “The suspects demanded money and the keys to the victims’ car and then fired off two rounds from a weapon, the release states.”

    “The male victim was able to obtain a handgun during the robbery attempt, which he fired several times at the suspects, according to the release. The suspects reportedly immediately fled.”

    How about that, “your honor?”   A crime stopped with a gun.  What would have happened if the “male victim” had not had a gun?  Would we be reading instead about three murders, including a three year old child? But guns cause crime, right Breyer?  We’re all safer if we’re disarmed, right Breyer?  Private citizens would use guns to shoot each other over parking spaces, right Breyer?  

    Because according to the likes of you, the average American citizen is too STUPID and VIOLENT to handle guns, right?

    And then I came across this:

    St. Kitts and Nevis is one of the places where you can buy citizenship for a few hundred thousand and that includes the investment in property. If Breyer owns a home there,  he has also purchased a second passport?

    Is Breyer one of the elites that has an idea of the time table of the economic collapse in the US?  Does he intend to run off and enjoy his life while the rest of us pay the consequences of the corruption caused by him and others of his ilk? 

    Justices like Breyer (and AG Holder) make me sick..

    Actually, I believe whites are the only people of color from the
    different hair colors to eye colors, all the others are just


    Yes, I know that for sure. I was talking about OUR skin color and how blacks love to call us people of “no color”.

    Good for liberals to get mugged.  it can make them conservative.  All the more needed for supremwe court liberals.

    I don’t care what happens in the West Indies or who it happens to there.  He needs to take the blinders off and see what is happening in his OWN country. The majority of us can’t afford a vacation home anywhere, and I could sure upset Breyer by disclosing the number of weapons in my possession.

     He didn’t learn anything either.

    I used to think that blacks were unoffensive victims of irrational color prejudice. Then I was robbed at gunpoint by two “youths.” Since then I have been mugged several times, and nearly beaten to death. I have friends and relatives who have been robbed at gun point, or mugged. Every time blacks did it.
    Most of us can name blacks that we like. I like every black person I know by name. Nevertheless, these experiences have hardened my attitude toward blacks as a race. 
    I also have to admit that I hate criminals, and want them to suffer. I do not think they have done anything to deserve remedial education and job training. They have debts to pay society.

    My opinions about the federal judiciary are illegal, so I won’t write them here.

    I dislike the Supreme Court as an institution. 

    I think judges should spend their time sentencing criminals to prison, and leave legislation to elected officials.

  • A conservative is a liberal who has been mugged.
