As far as I'm concerned, the Prosecutor who initiated the whole mess should be facing charges....

 

Missouri AG intervenes in case against St. Louis couple who defended their home with guns
Share: 

Editor note: A previous version of this story suggested all charges were dropped against the couple.  That is not yet formally the case.  The Missouri AG is still seeking to dismiss the case.  We’ll be sure to keep you updated on this breaking story as new details become available.

ST. LOUIS, MO – Kim Gardner, Circuit Attorney for St. Louis, brought charges against a local couple last month who were caught on video brandishing weapons on the porch of their mansion. Now the Missouri Attorney General is stepping in.

Mark and Patricia McCloskey’s response to a mob of protesters tearing down the gate to a private driveway and trespassing across their yard went viral.

The McCloskey’s who are both attorneys, were eating dinner on their patio when several hundred Black Lives Matter protesters, tore down a gate to gain access to a private community that was clearly marked as private with “No Trespassing” signs. 

Mark McCloskey claims that the protesters began making threats towards his wife and himself. He went into the home and retrieved a pistol and what appeared to be an AR-15. 

Luckily, no one was injured, and the guns that the McCloskey’s legally owned did the trick by keeping the protesters from causing them harm.  

According to The Lion Times:

“Republican Attorney General Eric Schmitt is intervening in state Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner’s legal action against Mark and Patricia McCloskey, for brandishing a rifle.

The AG can not drop the charges. He wrote a brief asking the Judge to drop the charges.

It will be more political, if the judge disagreed. That will set the stage for appeals. Hopefully the case is dismissed.

Isn't Kim Gardner another Soros backed prosecutor?

I am certain the Governor will pardon them, but like all politicians, he will wait to see if the Courts do his job for him.
