St. Louis Couple That Defended Property Against BLM Protesters Expects to Be Indicted


It’s just a never-ending story for the poor St. Louis couple that defended their home from BLM protesters.

First, the liberal district attorney announced she’d be investigating the couple.

Then, the police come to the couple’s home and confiscate their guns.

Now, the couple says that it’s very likely they’ll be indicted!

Here’s the story from the Daily Mail:

A St Louis lawyer who aimed an assault rifle Black Lives Matter demonstrators outside his mansion has been told he and his wife will be ‘indicted shortly’.

Mark and Patricia McCloskey, who are personal injury lawyers, were caught on video brandishing guns as demonstrators walked past their Renaissance palazzo-style home on June 28 while on the way to protest outside Mayor Lyda Krewson’s house. 

Last week, authorities searched the couple’s home and seized Mr McCloskey’s AR-15 assault rifle. Arrangements were also made to turn over the handgun wielded by Mrs McCloskey.

The couple’s attorney Joel Schwartz admitted afterwards that ‘charges are more likely than they were two days ago’.  

And on Monday, Mr McCloskey, 61, told Fox News host Tucker Carlson that Mr Schwartz had told them they are likely to be indicted.

He said: ‘My attorney advised me not to be on the show tonight because the rumour is that we are going to be indicted shortly.’

Speaking critically of Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, he went on, ‘this is the same circuit attorney that released 35 of the protesters that torched and looted downtown St Louis. But now she wants to indict me. 

‘I didn’t shoot anybody, I just held my ground, protected my house. I’m sitting here on television tonight instead of dead or putting out the smouldering embers of my home.’

Mr McCloskey went on to heap praise on the police, even though they recently searched his home. 

‘They didn’t want to have to be there,’ he said.
