Police Disarm St. Louis Couple Who Defended Their Home From Wild Protesters

Imbeciles on social media had a blast mocking and criticizing Mark and Patricia McCloskey last month when they were photographed defending their home and property from wild Black Lives Matter protesters who had broken into their private community.

With almost no reflection at all on how it must have felt watching this angry mob break down the gate in front of the posh neighborhood before marching recklessly through their private property, idiot liberals made memes calling the couple “Ken and Karen,” as if the proper response would have been to kneel in the yard and pledge allegiance to these criminals.

More disturbing than the online mockery, however, were the remarks coming from St. Louis prosecutors. In the days following the incident, Kim Gardner, the city’s circuit attorney, promised that she would be investigating the McCloskeys and their decision to…stand outside in their own yard and warn protesters about the fate they would meet if they chose to make a move on the couple.

“My office is currently working with the public and the police to investigate these events,” Gardner said on June 29. “Make no mistake: We will not tolerate the use of force against those exercising their First Amendment rights, and will use the full power of Missouri law to hold people accountable.”

Gardner did not explain how the First Amendment permitted protesters to break into private property and threaten harm to residents living there.

While Gardner has yet to follow through on her implied threat to charge the McCloskeys with a criminal violation of the protesters’ civil rights, police did pay the couple a visit this weekend. Armed with a search warrant, police left the house with the guns the McCloskeys used to defend themselves: A semi-automatic rifle and a handgun.

This has some Republicans incensed. Twelve members of Congress wrote to Attorney General William Barr this weekend to say that the McCloskeys’ Second Amendment rights have been compromised.

“At this crucial time in history, our nation needs the Department of Justice to exert strong leadership to ensure that none of our constitutional protections are eroded by mob rule,” the lawmakers wrote. “Charges against this couple will have a chilling effect on the entire nation, sending the message that American citizens no longer have the right to protect themselves at their own homes.”

Well said. Cities like St. Louis, Atlanta, and Seattle are beginning to run their prosecutors’ offices in such a way that they appease the racial justice mob instead of, you know, in a way that runs in conjunction with the law of the land. This trend needs to end as quickly as it began.

    Wake up America, you’ve been played and now it’s time to dispose of you all…. It’s going to be a rough ride for those still in denial.

    The City Attorney should be arrested by the 2nd Amendment militia on orders from the governor.

    Oh, wait. You don’t have a 2nd Amendment militia and forget about the spineless sheriffs enfarcing the law on her. They get paid by the city so they’ll side with the city.

    They need to be arrested too, by the 2nd Amendment militia. Oh, wait. I keep forgetting, you have no 2nd Amendment militia and you have NO governor in all 50 States that will support the 2nd Amendment militia as required by law. Keep forgetting. (slap myself on forehead).

    Well, you’re on your own…. good luck. :twisted:
