Supreme Court justice robbed at Caribbean vacation home

Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer was robbed at by an intruder armed with a machete last week, while vacationing in the Caribbean island of Nevis, where the family own a vacation home, a court spokeswoman said Monday.

His wife and two other guests were in the home at the time, but officials say no one was hurt in the incident.

      After choosing to put education and a lot of hard work anybody can work hard in America and obtain the best life has to offer. Sick and tired of jealous losers putting people down because they have chosen to be successful!!!!!

      You make it sound so black and white Chris. Follow this path, and here you go. Just have to choose. It's not so black and white, time to wake up. Although personally, I don't care one way or another where this guy has a vacation home and how much it cost or whatever. But stop acting like all it takes is hard work and a choice to be successful, because there is a lot more to factor into it than just working hard and choosing.

    Got enough money for a Caribbean vacation home? Wonder if that's related to that BS ruling that corporations are really people???

      He voted against it. The republican money grabbing supreme court justices like scalia, alito, roberts, thomas and kennedy voted for it.

      Nothing wrong with earning a lot of money and for the record you don't need a lot of money to buy vacation homes in some areas of the world including most of the east coast and such places like the Caribbean!!! What does it matter? Jealous people have more than you do? Well in America you can go to school, take out loans if you must to get a higher education and work hard and you too can CHOOSE, yes it is a choice to be successful or not choose and depend on those of us who are successful to make you feel better about yourself. Grow up or get the hell out of America!

      I can assure you that most if not all of the justices are in someone's pocket. Have I soured on honest, democratic government? Yep. Is everyone in Washington corrupt? Yep. Does everybody in Washington act in their own self interest? Absolutely.

    Well, they should know better and have bought a vacation home in the US. Also, the person that wrote this article should be fired for leaving the letter "s" off of the end of a word!

    @Rick1948 ... Your post implies that Justice Breyer somehow profited from that campaign finance ruling. In point of fact, he dissented in that case.

    oh well, looks like your robe isn't going to protect you all the time. Perfect example you can make all the laws, al lthe justice system theatrics, theatre- all the cops courts etc... , bottom line is you have to take care of yourself, and your community.

    Nevis has a very low crime rate, very very rarely is a tourist in danger, there have only been occasional crimes.

    I bet the vacation home is in his wife's name so he avoids the taxes!
