Soros-funded St Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner on Monday afternoon announced she filed felony charges against Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the couple seen defending their home from Black Lives Matter rioters who invaded their privately-owned neighborhood.
St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner has filed charges against a St. Louis couple who confronted protesters with guns in June, 5 On Your Side has learned.Gardner released the following (low resolution) statement on Twitter and described the unhinged mob as "peaceful" protesters:
"Today my office filed charges against Mark and Patricia McCloskey following an incident involving peaceful, unarmed protesters on June 28. It is illegal to wave weapons in a threatening manner at those participating in nonviolent protest, and while we are fortunate this situation did not escalate into deadly force, this type of conduct is unacceptable in St. Louis.Governor Mike Parson refused to stand up for the McCloskeys at first but after being hounded by Tucker Carlson and others he came out and said he's prepared to pardon the couple if they're charged.
"Missouri Gov. Parson said Trump is keeping an eye on the case," KMOV reported on Saturday. "During a phone call, Trump told the governor he 'understands the situation in St. Louis and how out of control it is for a prosecutor to let violent criminals off and not do their job and try to attack law-abiding citizens.'"
Trump's campaign invited the McCloskeys to speak during a digital campaign event on Friday night.
The McCloskey's attorney, Joel J. Schwartz, issued the following statement on Monday:
"The charges filed today against my clients, Mark and Patricia McCloskey, are disheartening as I unequivocally believe no crime was committed.The McCloskeys may be set to argue the guns were unloaded and therefor incapable of lethal force.
In order to issue the charges, prosecutors must prove the guns were capable of lethal force.Mark McCloskey earlier this month slammed Black Lives Matter as a "Marxist organization opposed to everything I stand for and everything I hold near and dear."
"I do stand for equal justice under the law, but that's got nothing to do with this terrorist organization known as Black Lives Matter," McCloskey said.
Gardner is one of many District/Circuit Attorneys who received funding from billionaire George Soros and is now prosecuting law-abiding citizens for defending themselves while letting rioters and looters go free.
UPDATE: Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt said he's entering the case to seek to have it dismissed.
