Prosecutor Faces Backlash After Charging Couple Defending Home

Missouri’s Republican Attorney General is once again butting heads with St. Louis’ Circuit Attorney.

Their latest clash follows Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner’s decision to charge Mark and Patricia McCloskey with felony unlawful use of a weapon for defending their property from violent demonstrators after they tore down the entrance to their gated community.

WATCH:

In response, Attorney General Eric Schmitt filed a brief to dismiss the charges as soon as possible.

The Daily Wire’s Hank Berrien reports:

“The right to keep and bear arms is given the highest level of protection in our constitution and our laws, including the Castle Doctrine, which provides broad rights to Missourians who are protecting their property and lives from those who wish to do them harm,” Schmitt told Fox News, adding, “Despite this, Circuit Attorney Gardner filed suit against the McCloskeys, who, according to published reports, were defending their property and safety. As Missouri’s Chief law enforcement officer, I won’t stand by while Missouri law is being ignored.”

Gardner had stated, “It is illegal to wave weapons in a threatening manner — that is unlawful in the city of St. Louis,” without mentioning Missouri’s “castle doctrine.” The couple’s attorney, Joel Schwartz, called Gardner’s decision “disheartening as I unequivocally believe no crime was committed.”

Mark McCloskey, an attorney, recalled last month, “I went inside; I got a rifle … because as soon as I said ‘this is private property,’ those words enraged the crowd. … Horde, an absolute horde came through the smashed-down gates, coming right at the house. And then I stood out there, the only thing we said is, ‘This is private property, go back, private property, leave now.’ At that point, everybody got enraged, there were people wearing body armor.”

“One person pulled out [some] loaded pistol magazines and he clicked them together and he said, ‘You’re next,’” McCloskey continued. “We were threatened with our lives, threatened with the house being burned down, my office building being burned down, even our dog’s life being threatened. It was about as bad as it can get. You know, I really thought it was the storming of Bastille, that we would be dead and the house would be burned and there was nothing we could do about it. It was a huge and frightening crowd and they broke in the gate and they were coming at us.”

Gardner first won election as St. Louis’ chief prosecutor in 2016, with financial support from George Soros.

Gary: George’s mama say he be a good boy. McCloskey is in the wrong. He should have invited the mob in and let them destroy his house. After all, because of his whiteness, he could get another one. Seriously, nothing will appease the left. The more you give them the more they want. According to Breitbart News. Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors said in a newly surfaced video from 2015 that she and her fellow organizers are “trained Marxists” – making clear their movement’s ideological foundation, according to a report. Cullors, 36, was the protégé of Eric Mann, former agitator of the Weather Underground domestic terror organization, and spent years absorbing the Marxist-Leninist ideology that shaped her worldview.

Well, the Governor better see that the mccloskeys get their weapons back – fast. The AG is trying but the demoloons know how to take their time in court.
Typical tyrrany by the circuit attorney – take their guns so when the mob comes back, mccloskeys will be defenseless. Any harm that befalls the mccloskeys should be 10x delivered to the Soros backed cow.

These protests will not stop as long as the Socialist Democrats keep fanning the flames.
For the Mayor of a large city to tell the Feds to leave, you’re not welcome here, is all the encouragement the leftist mob requires.
And they will not stop.
Chaos for the sake of Chaos is their goal.
Remember to Vote this November.

Why is soros and his crew not under investigation by the AG and the DoJ for all of his “dirty dealings” as far as the antifa and blm is concerned? Anyone with half-a-brain can figure out that he is the backer of all of this rioting and looting; why not make him financially responsible for all of the $$$ the businesses have lost because of the antifa/blm riots and looting??? Oh, I forgot, we have a TWO-TIERED justice system in this country; liberal/democrat/socialist/communist/marxists can do anything they want without fear of retribution, unlike the republican/conservatives that can be “taken to the woodshed” for any stupid reason, much like the St. Louis couple defending their home from the above mentioned rioters. Time to stand up to soros and the rest of the anti-American h8ers.

Now Trump and his supporters are always yelling about law and order in this USA, yet when one of them breaks the law, then someone who is a Liberal a police or judge or prosecutor. Now the law says you are not allowed to point a gun at any unarmed person in a threating way, when they are not doing you any harm or even on your property, but on a public street, with police following them, and those police say that the protesters did noting to cause anyone to draw a gun on them in any way, but according to some those police must be Liberals, now if the party was a reversal then they would want the couple locked up for brandishing firearms against a Conservative group.

Excuse me? Since when is “you’re next” while brandishing firearms clips not a threat? These people were justified under the 2nd Amendment and Castle Doctrine. The current occupant of the WH is irrelevant.

Democrats are fueling this discourse. Private citizens rights can not be trampled on. Protesters do not have the right to break down a gate and enter private property. Circuit-attorney Kim Gardner must answer to some one are they asleep and let her proceed with such outlandish charges. Send this one back to where ever she came from. Missouri doesn’t need her.
