ANALYSIS – “The big lie.” No. It's not election denial. It's a truly big lie. As early as 2016, Democrats have been peddling the absolute nonsense “big lie” that electing former President Donald Trump would be an existential threat to American democracy.

Since his challenging of the 2020 election, and the Capitol riot, those hysterical claims have only gotten shriller and more strident.

It's also a great way to mobilize their rabid base and avoid having to defend their abysmal record on everything from illegal immigration, and inflation to foreign.

In a late-night incident that could be straight out of a thriller, Justice 's bodyguards shot a suspected carjacker right outside her Washington, D.C., residence. The episode unfolded shortly after 1 am on July 5 in the usually quiet neighborhood in Northwest Washington.

A Close Call: The Incident Unfolds

The Scene

It was 1:15 am when the tranquility of the night was shattered. Kentrell Flowers, an 18-year-old armed Black man, allegedly approached a Deputy U.S. Marshal stationed in his car outside Justice Sotomayor's apartment.

The Confrontation

Flowers, reportedly driving a stolen vehicle, pointed his gun at the Marshal, intending to carjack the security vehicle. The Marshal drew his service weapon, responding with several shots aimed at the suspect. A second Marshal from another vehicle swiftly joined in, firing his service weapon at Flowers.

Aftermath

Despite being hit four times, including once in the mouth, the suspect survived with non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to a local hospital for treatment. No officers were injured during the incident. Flowers now faces a litany of charges, including armed carjacking, carrying a pistol without a license and possession of a large-capacity -feeding device.

The Metropolitan Police Department initially reported the incident on Friday, but it was the Daily Mail that linked it to Sotomayor's security detail on Tuesday.

The report said police recovered the black and silver Smith & Wesson 40VE handgun Flowers allegedly used for the attempted carjacking.

The Metro PD report named the first Marshal as ‘Deputy US Marshal Black', and did not name the second officer.

‘The Deputy U.S. Marshals involved in the shooting incident were part of the unit protecting the residences of U.S. Supreme Court justices,' a USMS spokeswoman told DailyMail.com.

‘As a general practice, the U.S. Marshals don't discuss specifics of protective details.

“The Deputy U.S. Marshals involved in the shooting incident were part of the unit protecting the residences of U.S. Supreme Court justices. As a general practice, the U.S. Marshals don't discuss specifics of protective details,” a spokesperson for the said.

    Doubt if they will let this suspect out on the streets without bail the way they do with other criminals that attack everyday citizens. Wonder what would have happened if the gun hating Judge’s security detail would not have been armed?
