Powerful video out of St Louis, Missouri shows a husband and wife facing down an angry mob of protesters who trespassed into their privately-owned suburb.

After the out-of-context videos above went viral and lies spread claiming the two were threatening "peaceful protesters" on a public street, a longer clip surfaced showing the mob chose to leave the public street they were marching on to invade their private property.

"Both the gate and the driveway are clearly identified as private property," The Conservative Tree House reported. "This is not public property."

Though the couple were doxed and inundated with threats on Twitter, the two quickly became a meme of resistance.

UPDATE: The home the couple was seen defending is a Midwestern palazzo they bought in a dilapidated state in 1988 and spent 32 years restoring to its original glory, according to a report from St. Louis Magazine in 2018.


From STL Today:
Police are continuing the investigate the incident on Portland Place but are labeling it as a case of trespassing and fourth-degree assault by intimidation.

Meanwhile, were the couple, as they stood on their own property, within their rights to point weapons at protesters? Gun rights advocates say yes. A police spokesperson said to ask "the courts."

Anders Walker, a constitutional law professor at St. Louis University, said that although it's "very dangerous" to engage protesters with guns, the homeowners broke no laws by brandishing or pointing weapons at them because Portland Place is a private street. He said the McCloskeys are protected by Missouri's Castle Doctrine, which allows people to use deadly force to defend private property.

"At any point that you enter the property, they can then, in Missouri, use deadly force to get you off the lawn," Walker said, calling the state's Castle Doctrine a "force field" that "indemnifies you, and you can even pull the trigger in Missouri."
KSDK released an interview with the homeowner:

Their lawyer put out this weak statement on their behalf (Mark's interview above is a lot better):

You can see the rioters smashed down their gate:

St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly M. Gardner released this threatening statement on Monday afternoon:

Gardner is one of the many state's attorneys who have taken funding from George Soros.
