Truly Terrifying: Complete List of Equipment that Justice Kavanaugh’s Would-Be Assassin Brought With Him

Nicholas John Roske.

Oh, the irony… he wanted to be a martyr for the pro-abortion mob.

He may appear to be a baby-faced, jug-eared kid from a presumably comfortable upper-middle class home in Simi Valley, California.

But as the old adage goes; looks can be deceiving.

After initial reports that Nicholas John Roske had been arrested for plotting to assassinate Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh, all he had was a pistol and a knife.

Yet as more information made its way to the public, it certainly appears that the wannabe killer also had torture on his mind.

The packing list of gear this turd was hauling around with him seems better suiting for the Saw movie franchise;

  • Glock 17 pistol
  • Two magazines
  • Undisclosed amount of ammunition
  • Pistol flashlight
  • Black tactical chest rig
  • Tactical knife
  • Pepper spray
  • Hammer
  • Screwdriver
  • Nail punch
  • Crowbar
  • Hiking boots with padding on the outside of the soles
  • Zip ties
  • Duct tape

As reported by Jerry Dunleavy of the Washington Examiner (emphasis mine);

The man arrested outside Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home has been charged with attempted murder.

Nicholas John Roske of Simi Valley, California, who was identified in a criminal complaint charging him with the attempted murder of a Supreme Court justice, was dressed in black when he arrived by taxi just after 1 a.m. outside Kavanaugh’s home in a Washington suburb.

Roske, a 26-year-old white man, had a Glock 17 pistol, ammunition, a knife, zip ties, pepper spray, duct tape, and other items that he told police he would use to break into Kavanaugh’s house and kill him, according to a criminal complaint and affidavit filed in federal court in Maryland. Roske said he purchased the gun specifically to kill Kavanaugh and that he also planned to then kill himself, according to the affidavit written by FBI agent Ian Montijo, who also interviewed Roske early Wednesday after he had confessed his plan to police.

Police said they searched the bag and suitcase that Roske showed up with and found two magazines and ammunition to go along with the suspect’s freshly purchased pistol, a pistol light, a black tactical chest rig, a tactical knife, and pepper spray. He also had on him what seemed to be likely burglary tools, including a hammer, screwdriver, nail punch, crowbar, and hiking boots with padding on the outside of the soles. Roske also had zip ties and duct tape.

When he initially got out of the taxi, Roske was spotted by two deputy U.S. marshals who are part of round-the-clock security provided to the justices following the leak of a draft opinion last month. But Roske was only apprehended after he called 911 in Montgomery County, Maryland, and said he was having suicidal thoughts and planned to kill Kavanaugh, having found the justice’s address online. Roske was still on the phone when Montgomery County police arrived on the scene, according to the affidavit.
