In what can only be seen as inciting to assassinate Supreme Court Justices Thomas and Alito, Simon Gwynn opined that if those two were assassinated, Roe v Wade would be saved. He even suggested that if you were terminally ill, you would have nothing to lose. That message could trigger the mentally ill as well. He deleted the tweets, but as we all know, the internet is forever.
“Interesting real life trolley problem in America now. If you had the chance to kill Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito, the two oldest right wing Supreme Court judges, should you do it while Biden can get his nominees to replace them confirmed?”
“It’s interesting as an abstract question, but becomes a real conundrum if, say, you’re terminally ill and have little to lose yourself, but know that it could save many women’s lives in the future.”
His profile says that he used to work as a reporter for the Haymarket Media Group but had to resign because of “unwise tweets.” No surprise there.
I've removed my recent two tweets about the US Supreme Court as on reflection they're obviously pretty irresponsible, though I don't think they would be against Twitter's TOS.
FYI I don't endorse murdering anyone, but don't think there's anything wrong with thought experiments.

This comes at the same time that pro-abortion activists plan on marching at the homes of all six conservative justices. That would seem to me to be an opportunity for some lunatic to attempt an assassination. But, then again, what percentage of Democrats are unhinged?uh oh.
“The radical Left and their dark money funders have one goal, which is to intimidate the Court,” Judicial Crisis Network President Carrie Severino told The Daily Wire on Wednesday evening. “Showing up at the justices’ homes to harass them is absolutely beyond the pale and shows the lengths to which they are willing to go in order to undermine the Court’s independence.”
In a Tuesday editorial, the Wall Street Journal Editorial Board expressed concerns that an “abortion fanatic” might “commit an act of violence” in an effort to subvert the court’s expected decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
“One question is how fast the Court should now move to publish its decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization,” the board said. “There’s an argument for getting it out fast to make it a fait accompli.”
