In response to a hostile mob invading their private drive and allegedly threatening their lives, Mark and Patricia McCloskey armed themselves and ran outside to dissuade any further violence.
Democrat Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner, St. Louis’ chief prosecutor, subsequently charged the McCloskeys with felony weapons charges.
In no small part, Gardner owes her election to the financial support of controversial billionaire investor George Soros.
Now, the McCloskeys have been indicted by a grand jury on felony weapons and evidence tampering charges. (Daily Wire)
“Lawyer Joel Schwartz said he was told a grand jury indicted his clients on felony counts of unlawful use of a weapon and evidence tampering,” the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. “He said he had no details. A St. Louis court clerk said the indictment was filed Tuesday but that she was not authorized to provide a copy.”
Schwartz said, “I am not surprised that the grand jury indicted them but I’ll certainly be interested in what was presented to the grand jury.”
“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?” Mark McCloskey said on Tuesday. “We didn’t fire a shot. People were violently protesting in front of our house and screaming death threats and threats of rape and threats of arson. Nobody gets charged but we get charged.”
The McCloskeys spoke at the Republican National Convention over the summer where they warned that what happened to them could happen to anyone.
