The left’s hysteria over the recent overturning of Roe v. Wade continues to escalate, with a new development that’s particularly disturbing.
A pro-abortion, radical leftwing group called ShutDownDC has launched a “bounty” program for its followers, or anyone for that matter, who reports a confirmed sighting of a conservative U.S. Supreme Court justice. The reward starts at $50, and if the justice is still at the location 30 mins later, presumably so protesters can arrive on scene to harass them, the reward is $200, the New York Post reports.

The Post noted: “ShutDownDC said it would pay the bounty to anyone who shares a ‘confirmed sighting’ of Justices Brett Kavanaugh, Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Amy Coney Barrett or John Roberts.”
DC Service Industry Workers… If you see Kavanaugh, Alito, Thomas, Gorsuch, Coney Barrett or Roberts DM us with the details!
We’ll venmo you $50 for a confirmed sighting and $200 if they’re still there 30 mins after your message. https://t.co/xXWZ5JZiE7

The group’s program is a direct violation of Twitter policy, which prohibits accounts from encouraging people to harass others. Not surprisingly, so far, the group’s account is still in good standing and active.
“We prohibit behavior that encourages others to harass or target specific individuals or groups with abusive behavior,” the platform’s policy on abusive behavior states, as Fox News noted. “This includes, but is not limited to; calls to target people with abuse or harassment online and behavior that urges offline action such as physical harassment.”
The new program comes on the heels of protesters from the same deranged group stalking Justice Kavanaugh during a dinner at Morton’s, where the protesters attempted to harass him, forcing him to leave through the back of the restaurant.
Protesters have also continued to stage small demonstrations outside of the homes of conservative Supreme Court justices.
