(CNN) - Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer was robbed last week by an intruder armed with a machete while Breyer was vacationing on the Caribbean island of Nevis, court officials said Monday.

    While that's certainly a shame, at least he's alright, unlike the US public which got robbed of our government right in his building with the Citizens United decision.

    Glad he is safe.

    And this isn't good for the 'vacation home' business in The Caribbeans!

    Breyer was one of the four dissenters in the Citizens United vs FEC decision. Not sure why you're upset at a guy who's on your side of the issue.

    Secret Service FAIL. The article mentions that the US Marshalls are supposed to be providing protection for the SCOTUS justices when they travel – So what happened? Intruder came in during Deputy Fife's cofee break?

    I don't support Romney, but Santorum is the stupidest of all. If he wins due to tea party or Sarah Palin supports or religious fanatics this country is doomed. I hope Santorum loses. This country needs a president not a religious freek. The only other person who more stupid than Santorum is Sarah Palin. Not sure where these freeks are coming from. Republicans wake up. ..\thanks,.an independent voter.

    Breyer robbed all citizens of their property (shall we say, lifes' savings) when he voted in the Kelo decision to permit, even encourage, local governments to seize our land and homes for the benefit of other private parties. Perhaps this ugly incident will teach the august lout the value of protecting individual property. Perhaps, on the other hand, his twisted, distorted mind will fail to make any connection whatever.

    Release all robberies, when you come back. You should dread your hair, to escape the inescapable.

    You who are connecting Justice Breyer with Citizens United need to review the voting record.

    Our taxes pay his salary. He should vacation in America. I'm sure that Key Biscayne or Newport Beach, California are much safer places.
