A lot of death threats are being made against SCOTUS justices on social media before a possible overturn of Roe.

As the country prepares for the possibility that Roe v. Wade will be overturned, sickening death threats against the conservative Supreme Court justices can be seen by everyone on social media.

One Twitter user said, "Ok, I'll kill Samuel Alito, I'm doing it for the team," a few hours after Politico published a draft opinion by Justice Samuel Alito that said the landmark 1973 decision that legalized abortion nationwide should be overturned. "I will kill everyone who voted in the election."

"Well, it looks like it's time to hit the "kill Samuel Alito" button I keep on my desk. This seems like a good time to do it," said someone else.

"Ok, so either we have to increase the number of justices on the Supreme Court to 15 or we have to kill Clarence Thomas," wrote a third person, referring to the push by some progressives to increase the number of justices. This is called "court-packing."

The tense atmosphere around the upcoming decision, which has included protests at the homes of justices, led the Department of Homeland Security to warn of possible violence in a memo last week.

In the memo, which was published in full by the Washington Free Beacon on Wednesday, DHS said that the leak had "led to a significant increase in violent threats" and that intelligence officials had found "at least 25 violent threats on social media" that were sent to partner agencies for further investigation.

"Some of these threats talked about setting the US Supreme Court on fire or storming it and killing Justices or their clerks, members of Congress, and legal protesters," the memo said.

"In the past, violent acts related to this issue were mostly done by violent abortion opponents who were against abortion rights," the memo, which was first reported by Axios, said. "In the future, violence by pro-choice abortion extremists could be sparked by anger over restrictions on abortion access."

The document talks about a recent arson attack on the Wisconsin headquarters of an anti-abortion group. The people who did it are said to have written on the walls, "If abortions aren't safe, then neither are you."

The Post asked DHS if it knew who was behind the threats, but the department did not answer right away. It also did not say if it was looking into a possible organized plot against the high court.

The Post sent a message to Twitter asking why some threatening posts were still visible weeks after they were made. A Twitter representative didn't answer.

The memo was leaked to the media, and it took the Justice Department a few hours to confirm that the US Marshals Service has been protecting each justice's home around the clock since last week.

Attorney General Merrick Garland said, "The rise of violence and illegal threats of violence against those who serve the public is unacceptable and dangerous to our democracy." On Wednesday, he met with the Supreme Court's marshal, chief of police, and other top law enforcement officials to talk about possible next steps.

"I want to be clear," the AG continued, "while people vote, argue, and debate in a democracy, we must not, we cannot, let violence or illegal threats of violence permeate our national life. The Justice Department will not let judges or other public servants be hurt or threatened with harm at work, at home, or anywhere else.

Roe and Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, which could be overturned, is expected to get a ruling before the end of the court's term in late June or early July.
