“Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the St. Louis couple caught on video waving guns at protesters, have been charged with one felony count each, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.”
These are the people that came out of their house with guns to protect their home as Black Lives Matter protesters who were already trespassing passed by their home.
“In a statement released Monday, St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly M. Gardner announced that the pair have each been charged with one count of exhibiting, a felony.
“It is illegal to wave weapons in a threatening manner at those participating in nonviolent protest, and while we are fortunate this situation did not escalate into deadly force, this type of conduct is unacceptable [in this city],” she said.”
I wonder if Kimberly Gardner has researched the claims of the BLM that started all this. Do you think she even questioned the validity of the claim that Black People are abused and killed more by police than others. This claim is false and the BLM is manipulating data to demonstrate the claim true.
I wonder if Kim Gardner lives in a neighborhood in which these protests were held. Do you think she would fear for her safety, her property, or anything else? It is not wrong to defend your property, or yourself for that matter. The McCloskey’s did not make threats or approach the protesters, of which I am sure a few of them had firearms. How many days had the McCloskey’s watched the news seeing protesters rioting, destroying property, and looting anything of value by the protesters? Why shouldn’t they be prepared to take action to defend their property?
I wonder why Kimberly Gardner isn’t taking measure to protect the citizens of her city from people causing harm. The McCloskey’s did not interfere with peaceful protest, allowing the protesters to pass unhindered.
America is de-funding their police and changing laws and lives based on lies and none are sm,art enough to challenge the validity of the data that proves it all a lie.
