Agitators Could Be Charged With Trespassing, Assault After Confrontation With Armed Homeowners

‘Protesters’ being investigated after storming private St. Louis neighborhood

(Infowars) – Demonstrators who marched through a gated community in St. Louis are being investigated for trespassing and assault, local media reported, after footage of an armed couple protecting their home from the mob went viral.

Mark and Patricia McCloskey have been criticized for pointing guns – an assault rifle and a pistol – at the protesters and demanding that they leave their private neighborhood. But it appears that St. Louis police believe the demonstrators were in the wrong.

Law enforcement is investigating Sunday’s incident as a case of trespassing and fourth-degree assault by intimidation, according to the St. Louis Dispatch.

The McCloskeys claim that the crowd broke an iron gate leading to the private community and began shouting threats and obscenities as they approached their home. It was only then that the couple armed themselves and stood guard on their front lawn.

Footage of the confrontation shows the duo shouting down the protesters as they point their weapons at them. “Get out! Private property, get out!” Mark McCloskey is heard shouting.

Although police are reportedly focusing their investigation on the protesters, St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly M. Gardner appears to have taken a different view of the altercation.

In a statement released on Monday, she claimed that the “peaceful” protesters were “met by guns and a violent assault.” She said that her office was launching its own probe into the events and “will use the full power of Missouri law to hold people accountable.”

  1. I believe that every elected official of any and all US communities is responsible to uphold the constitution of our great country. Each and every elected person who does not do so is anti USA and is a definite threat to this country. I retired as a military defender of this nation of which I am very proud. I believe that each individual elected person who makes any attempt to go against the constitution of the USA is committing an act of TREASON and should be treated accordingly as a person committing TREASON against the United Stated of America and punished accordingly without exception. This also includes all persons of the US Congress who have stole a paycheck for three plus years doing nothing but trying to overthrow the executive branch of government elected by the people of this great country. They are trying to follow the path of the current socialist dictator of Venezuela, as other countries have done in the past. They have committed TREASON against the USA. They have NOT done the job they were elected to do. Each one should be stripped from office, jailed, and tried for treason. This should also come under the TERRORIST rules of Law. Any attempted overthrow of our government is a TERRORIST act. This is not and should not be treated as a normal violation of law. Americans – real Americans who love this great country – step up to the plate. It is time. The evil devils are very actively trying to rip the USA apart.

  2. “Could be charged with trespassing and assault” Who thought of this crap!! Broke through a gate, trespassed onto private property, threatened the family, threatened the pets. The family made it clear they felt their lives were in peril. Now this family is literally being forgotten and on their own despite numerous threats on their lives and told these terrorists will be back. So far the best advice they have received from law enforcement is leave the house, it isn’t worth it. No offer of police protection or that the police will even respond. It is time for all great Americans to step up-this is our country.

  5. Kimberly Gardner, needs to put on her thinking cap. If these thugs, had tried this at her house, what would she have done? Invited them in to rob her, destroy her home, & it’s contents, kill her dog, & perhaps her, & her family. Give us a break will you! Remember what the Mayor of Seattle did when a group of peaceful protesters, VISITED HER HOME? She decided, that it was time, to end the peaceful block party, it is a crying shame that she did not do it until after two young people were killed, & another wounded & in critical condition. Do you think, that some of these leaders, need to think about other innocent people, before they put lives in danger in the future?

  6. Ms. Gardner must be a Democrat who else would say protestors have a right to approach a citizens homes and make threats and accuse the home owners of threatening them. I understand they broke through a private gate ,making them trespassers not protesters.

  7. What is happening around the country today, this being a prime example, is that there is an agenda afoot that intends to rob us of every blood bought right the Constitution so carefully has provided us with! And trying to stop the protection of our nation’s borders was one of the obvious indicators! Where is the concern for the ‘peaceful protesting’ of those who oppose the ripping of innocent little human lives from their biologically protected place? All kinds of prohibitions have been conjured up on such protesting to try to stop THAT! But THIS screaming “GANG attack” is supposed to be sympathized with and somehow PROTECTED and the victims of it made out to be the aggressors is just how far the deranged LEFTIST mind-set has deteriorated! The voting booth is our first line of defense….and THAT too is being threatened by the plan of detouring all ballots through the potential fraudulant gauntlet of the U S postal service!

  8. I don’t know what world the media comes from. People who break down a gate, and ignore private property signs are trespassing. Threatening harm is against the law. At least is was up until a few weeks ago. These people are violent, rioting terrorists. There is nothing peaceful about them.

  9. COULD BE ? This should have already been done ! I’LL BET IF THESE ANIMALS HAD ATTACKED THESE GOOD FOLKS AND BEEN SHOT AS THEY SHOULD BE, THE GOOD HOMEOWNERS WOULD HAVE ALREADY BEEN CHARGED ! ! THIS IS NOT THE AMERICA I SERVED ! ! ! ITS NOW BECOMING A SOCIALIST, MARXIST, COMMUNIST NATION AND WILL SOON BE JUST ANOTHER “SHIT HOLE NATION”

  10. I can not urge this strongly enough…
    Read George Orwell’s “1984”!!!
    It is a short book written long before the year 1984, but if you read it now, you will understand what is happening now and what the future will be if the left is not stopped NOW.

  11. The constitution guarantees that people can if needed use deadly force to protect themselves – another’s life – family and property. NO ONE CAN EVER TAKE THAT AWAY AND THE SHEEP WILL WAKE UP TO THAT FACT. PUT THE TRASH OR KEEP THE TRASH IN POWER AND LOSE EVERYTHING YOU HOLD DEAR.

  12. Just a matter of time we are forced to give up our homes, property and businesses to these thugs who think we owe them something.

    • The irony of this is that these two people are liberal lawyers and have help defend minorities per buno a lot of times.Maybe they could get their liberal friends to complain since it happened to a rich couple.

  13. they believe the racist agitators were in the wrong see i have a problem with that if they cant see that, you have the right to protect your person and property period !

    • The democrats believe you have no rights period and that you are at their mercy! Stupid people will vote democrat and unfortunately there are a lot of stupid people out there!

  14. What are the chances that any of these “protesters” will be prosecuted with this Gardner person as the Chief Prosecutor in the city/county??? It doesn’t matter what reports that the police write or what criminal offenses they articulate. She is the final voice at that level. The police and the people are at the mercy of HER AGENDA!!!

  15. St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly M. Gardner seems to side with those who create crimes by calling them peaceful protests. The question is did these peaceful protesters brake into a private community? Even if the protesters did not say a word braking in is trespassing. What would be the difference if these peaceful protesters broke into a closed door Fed House committee meeting?

  16. ALL ANARCHIST SHOULD BE JAILED AND FINED FOR THE DESTRUCTION OF PROPERTY DAMAGED BY THEM. EVERY ONE OF THE PEOPLE INVOLVED IN THE SEATTLE, MINNESOTA, NEW YORK, LA, ETC, RIOTS SHOULD BE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE FOR LOOTING, RAPPING, KILLING, ARSON, DESTROYING PROPERTY AND OTHER CRIMINAL ACTIVITY. LOCK THEM UP IF THEY DO THE CRIME, THEN THEY SHOULD PAY FOR THEIR DAMAGES.

  17. Gardner should be disbarred. She is obviously totally ignorant of the law. The McCloskey’s acted appropriately under the circumstances. And is an “assault” rifle no longer an “assault” rifle when it can’t function as an “assault” rifle? Assault rifles are illegal in this country unless you have a 3rd class FFL, you are military acting on duty, or you are law enforcement. Wish you “reporters” would get that straight.

  18. Nothing is illegal. Right is wrong wrong is right. Welcome to the new lib world. If you are not happy watch how you vote and pray your vote makes it to count?

  19. In Missouri, due to the castle doctrine, it’s legal to protect one’s property. Kim Gardner has a history of corruption and flagrant disregard for the law. She should be removed from office – and fast.

  20. The protesters broke down a gate to enter a private community for the purpose of intimidating the residents. So, they should be charged as stated in the post and required to pay damages.

  21. St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly M. Gardner need to disbarred and fired!

    She think she can write her own laws and ignore existing laws on the book! What a crook!

  22. I m making over $9-k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life…

    This is what I do………… W­o­r­k­9­2.Co­m
