A grand jury indicted Mark and Patricia McCloskey Tuesday on charges of exhibiting guns at rioters, and now tampering with evidence. This is following an incident where the couple had shown their willingness to defend their home against protestors that were trespassing on their property. Mr. and Mrs. McCloskey pointed thier guns at a mob of activists as they stormed through the gates of their St. Louis home.
“They broke down our gate, they trespassed on our property. Not a single one of those people are now charged with anything,” Mark McCloskey stated. “We’re charged with felonies that could cost us four years of our lives and our law license," said Mark McCloskey, reported KMOV.
“What you are witnessing here is just an opportunity for the government, the leftist, Democrat government of the City of St. Louis to persecute us for doing no more than exercising our Second Amendment rights,” McCloskey said.
Their attorney, Joel Schwartz, said the grand jury didn’t have all the facts. “Once all the facts are out, it will be clear the McCloskeys committed no crime whatsoever,” he said.
