    Scandal In St. Louis! Couple Face Felony Charges For Defending Their Home!

    July 21, 2020




    A couple in St. Louis will face felony charges in their much-photographed defense of their home in a private, gated and locked community as BLM and other protesters broke through the gates and moved toward the couple's home. Justice...or an attack on property rights and the Second Amendment. Plus in today's Report: More threats to jail Covid-19 positive cases if they resist house arrest. Also - what happened on June 14th that led to the massive spike in "cases"?

    “The right to life is the source of all rights—and the right to property is their only implementation. Without property rights, no other rights are possible. Since man has to sustain his life by his own effort, the man who has no right to the product of his effort has no means to sustain his life. The man who produces while others dispose of his product, is a slave.”

    This will set a dangerous precedent for anybody that defends their home with a gun. Expect to see similar stories from here on out.

    Can the AG charge the prosecutor with prosecutorial misconduct? Feds have retried a significant number of cases using human rights violations as the end run around double-jeopardy. Charging that couple is a clear violation of their rights, so I see no reason that a special prosecutor could not charge the local prosecutor with human rights violations.

    Through lives and lives shalt thou pay, O' king.

    Freedom will be stolen from you in a heartbeat if you do not behave as a wild and ravening beast pursuant to its protection.

    "Government" is naught but a mental construct, a script to which people meekly accept and play out their assigned roles by those with no authority to dictate such.

    Pray for reset.

    The governor (Parson) and attorney general (Schmitt) of Missouri have made noises of disapproval - and to his credit, the AG has moved to have the charges dismissed - but it's rather doubtful that they'll actually do anything except squawk about the prosecutor (Gardner) herself ... ("Just Us" and all that, don'cha know ...)

    St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, the city’s top prosecutor, said Mark and Patricia McCloskey – both personal injury attorneys in their 60s – will be charged with felony unlawful use of a weapon following the June 28 incident.

    "It is illegal to wave weapons in a threatening manner -- that is unlawful in the city of St. Louis," Gardner said in a statement. She added that she was recommending a diversion program as an alternative to jail if the McCloskeys are convicted.

    Gardner declined to discuss to why Missouri’s “castle doctrine,” a law that justifies deadly force for those who are defending their homes from intruders, didn’t apply.

    Within hours of the ruling, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt filed a brief seeking to dismiss Gardner’s charges against the McCloskeys on the grounds that their Second Amendment rights are being violated.

    “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 said in a prepared statement provided to Fox News.

    “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,” Schmitt said.

    The brief filing says the attorney general “respectfully requests that the Court dismiss this case at the earlier possible opportunity.”

    McCloskeys' attorney says Gardener's staff altered evidence

    Author: Christine Byers (KSDK)

    In Missouri, police and prosecutors must prove that a weapon is “readily” capable of lethal use when it is used in the type of crime with which the McCloskeys have been charged.

    [B]Assistant Circuit Attorney Chris Hinckley ordered crime lab staff members to field strip the handgun and found it had been assembled incorrectly. Specifically, the firing pin spring was put in front of the firing pin, which was backward, and made the gun incapable of firing, according to documents obtained by 5 On Your Side.

    Firearms experts then put the gun back together in the correct order and test-fired it, finding that it worked, according to the documents

    Patricia McCloskey and her husband, Mark McCloskey, have said the handgun Patricia McCloskey waved at protesters was inoperable because they had used it as a prop during a lawsuit they once filed against a gun manufacturer. In order to bring it into a courtroom, they made it inoperable.

    Their attorney, Joel Schwartz, confirmed to 5 On Your Side that the McCloskeys intentionally misplaced the firing pin on the gun and that it was in that condition when Patricia McCloskey waved it at protesters and turned it into their former attorney Al Watkins.

    “It’s disheartening to learn that a law enforcement agency altered evidence in order to prosecute an innocent member of the community,” Schwartz said.

    A spokeswoman for Gardner wrote: "We can't comment on a pending case."
    There is no reference to the operating condition of the gun in the probable cause statement police wrote on the case. The only reference to it is contained in the charging document with Hinckley’s name on it....

    In all fairness that couple is showing extremely bad handling of weapons esp. poor muzzle discipline. Your barrel should never be pointing out at people but at the ground, like a soldier does. You'd be kicked off the range for sweeping a muzzle like that.

    Agreed. And overweight people shouldn't wear horizontal stripes.

    Kind of a sick feeling knowing that we have to be on the same side of an issue and defend these two BLM supporting anti-gun hypocrites.

    Perhaps some fast acting diabetes will resolve this to everyone's satisfaction.
