Trespasser Arrested At RFK Jr.’s Home

( – On October 9, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. announced he was changing his Democratic Party bid for president in 2024 to run on an Independent ticket. While candidates running for office attract much-needed attention to win positions, it also can invite interactions with those who have ill intentions.

On October 25, the Kennedy campaign announced that police had arrested a man for climbing the fence around Kennedy’s home in California. The man attempted to reach the candidate’s home to gain access to the candidate not once, but twice. The first time, he was detained by security personnel from the Gavin de Becker & Associates (GDBA) and handed over to the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD). After police released the individual, he reportedly headed straight for Kennedy’s house again, asking to speak to the candidate. At that point, Kennedy sought and won a restraining order against the intruder.

Apparently, these two instances weren’t the man’s first attempts to contact Kennedy. According to the GDBA, he has been sending concerning communications to the presidential candidate for quite some time. The security organization notified the Secret Service about the attempts.

Kennedy, through his campaign, has requested US Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to grant him protection as a presidential candidate, which he has not received yet. Kennedy claims he is the “first presidential candidate in history” to be denied, even though it’s not common practice for them to have detailed security.

On October 25, the Kennedy campaign sent Mayorkas another request outlining the reasons why he needs these protections. That information included the recent incidents and another involving an armed individual posing as a US Marshal at one of Kennedy’s events.

According to the United States Secret Service website, protection services begin within 120 days of the general election. As such, the protection should start for Kennedy and the other candidates in late summer 2024.
