ASSASSINATION? Armed man posing as law enforcement gets arrested when he gets near Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

Last night an armed man posing as a US Marshal tried to get near Robert F. Kennedy Jr in a possible assassination attempt. He claimed he was part of Kennedy’s security detail and was quickly detained and arrested by Kennedy’s actual security detail.

The man had a badge, a law enforcement lanyard and two loaded pistols with spare ammunition. You can see him in the video below:

Here’s what Robert F. Kennedy Jr. tweeted about it overnight:

I’m very grateful that alert and fast-acting protectors from Gavin de Becker and Associates (GDBA) spotted and detained an armed man who attempted to approach me at my Hispanic Heritage speech at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles tonight. The man, wearing two shoulder holsters with loaded pistols and spare ammunition magazines was carrying a U.S. Marshal badge on a lanyard and beltclip federal ID. He identified himself as a member of my security detail. Armed GDBA team members moved quickly to isolate and detain the man until LAPD arrived to make the arrest. I’m also grateful to LAPD for its rapid response.

I’m still entertaining a hope that President Biden will allow me Secret Service protection. I am the first presidential candidate in history to whom the White House has denied a request for protection.

I’m glad he had security there to watch out for him because otherwise the news could have been very different.
