The politicos of STL and the disaster on the other side of the state is once again making national news.
Depending on reader superstitions . . . Some believe the couple are urban freedom fighters for the 2nd Amendment while others denounce tacky gentrification enthusiast lawyers brandishing weapons. The punchline: Either way they're repellent and represent a TEXTBOOK example of how NOT to engage in home defense amid civil unrest and the social media era.
The latest revelation in their case today .. .
"A grand jury has indicted Mark and Patricia McCloskey, two St. Louis lawyers who pointed their guns at Black Lives Matter protesters in their neighborhood in June . . . They have each been charged with exhibiting guns at a protest and evidence-tampering."
He's the retort and a double down on their love for Prez Trump now that they might need that Presidential pardon . . .
“The government chooses to persecute us for doing no more than exercising our right to defend ourselves, our home, our property and our family. And now we’re getting drug here time, after time, after time, and for what? We didn’t fire a shot. People who were violently protesting in front of our house, screaming death threats and threats of rape, and threats of arson, nobody gets charged, but we get charged,” Mark McCloskey said.
The McCloskeys also used the appearance outside of the courthouse to push for voters to reelect President Donald Trump.
“Because we had the gall to protect our home and our family against the mob, then you should all be very afraid of what’s coming down the road for us if we don’t reelect Donald Trump,” McCloskey said.
