Couple pulls guns on BLM protesters in St. Louis

A march to St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson’s home over the weekend led to an ominous confrontation between peaceful protesters and a white couple at one of the residences along the way. Krewson has been facing resignation demands after recently harassing residents for writing letters asking to defund the police, and the march Sunday evening was to end at her home to re-up that request.

When such behavior takes place, i.e. marching through residential areas, and creating chaos and fear among homeowners, Black Lives Matter doesn’t make any friends.

But as the group of at least 500 people walked past one mansion in the high-end Central West End neighborhood, a man and a woman—he with a rifle, she with a handgun—stood outside the home, pointing their weapons and yelling at the people walking past, per CBS News. People in the march urged fellow marchers to ignore the couple and keep walking. KMOV reports that photos and footage of the couple—one clip here—went viral on social media.

On Monday morning, President Trump himself retweeted an ABC News video showing the couple in front of their home. A man who identified himself as the homeowner tells KMOV that a crowd of 100 or so people busted through the gates on his private street and “rushed towards my home where my family was having dinner outside and put us in fear of our lives. … We were all alone facing an angry mob.”

Heavy.com identifies the couple as Mark and Patricia McCloskey, personal injury lawyers who work together, though the Washington Post—which notes that the five-story residence in the video was once deemed the city’s “most dazzling mansion” by St. Louis Magazine—hasn’t been able to confirm if the couple who own the home are the same two people in the video. The AP notes it hasn’t heard back yet from the St. Louis Police Department on whether it knew about the incident.

    Good for them.

    The protesters went onto private land in a gated community. Plenty of signs saying private.

    You get a three figure protest on your private land, damn right you’re going to prepare to defend yourself and your home.

    I don’t know if they broke any laws. I believe that in Florida “Brandishing” a weapon at somebody is a crime although simply openly carrying it while on your own property is not – which all means it depends on your lawyer. From the looks of the house they can afford one.

    But of course they’re a “white couple” and you know what that means. White people are racist and what one white person does, particularly if he’s old or worse “rich,” reflects on all of them and Remember George Washington had slaves.

    If they were a black couple? Oh boy – but remember that in these woke up days it all depends on your skin color and did I mention Washington had slaves?

    Glenn : The couple are lawyers. Injury claim lawyers I believe.

    We don’t have many guns in the UK. Only criminals and some police have them – apart from the military obviously.

    If such a thing happened at our home, I’d be out there waving one of my antique French Épée bayonets – very long – or my Napoleonic sabre.

    Not that it’s likely down our little road, but I’d stab and slash with abandon to be honest if I felt my home /family were threatened.

    My “arsenal” is a bit out of date. It includes a blunderbus and a musketoon and a civil war musket I wouldn’t dare fire. Still, it’s the thought that counts.
