Higher, ‘non-scalable’ fencing put up outside Supreme Court
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Crews put up higher fencing outside the Supreme Court amid concerns about protesters and demonstrators.
Since Politico published a leaked draft opinion that suggests the Supreme Court is poised to overturn Roe v. Wade, thousands of people have shown up to protest in front of the high court.
The fence is "non-scalable", similar to what was set up around the Capitol following last year’s riot.
The large eight-foot fencing panels will be replacing smaller bike racks.
The U.S. Capitol police say they are "working closely" with their "partner law enforcement agencies to prepare for any potential demonstrations in the area of the Supreme Court."
