Finally, a glimmer of common sense has emerged in the prosecution of Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the St. Louis couple who reportedly defended their lives and livelihoods from a hostile crowd as violence consumed wide swaths of America.

Parson said at a news conference on Wednesday that he “most certainly would” issue a pardon for the couple should they be convicted on counts of exhibiting a weapon and tampering with evidence brought against them over the June incident, according to The Associated Press.
“We’ll let it play out and see how this all comes out in the courts, but I stand by what I said,” Parsons continued.
The governor also suggested he was prepared to issue pardons for the couple back in July after circuit attorney Kim Gardner launched an investigation into the June 28 incident.
A grand jury in St. Louis indicted the McCloskeys on the charges earlier on Tuesday. The couple had already been charged with felony unlawful use of a weapon in July and the jury leveled the evidence tampering charge against the couple this week.
