Never mind the right to defend oneself if the circuit attorney is an activist hell-bent on twisting the law to fit an agenda. St Louis CA Kim Gardner said at the time of the incident that she would find something in Missouri law to prosecute the McCloskeys, the couple who kept 300 “peaceful protestors” who forced entry onto private property with an AR-15 and a pistol.
Apparently, she is classifying the self-defence as a felony which carries up to a four-year jail term. Never mind that they had been threatened with being murdered and their property being burnt to the ground. The police couldn’t attend and private security didn’t want to be involved. No shots were fired. Nobody was hurt.
Still, CA Gardner, so eager to stop systemic racism found no fault with what she claims is a white on black crime. Never mind that the mob comprised of many racial backgrounds. Never mind that they were trespassing. Forget that they broke the gate. Forget the tweet where one of the mob leaders openly intended to trash the McCloskey’s property. What did race have to do with it? If the McCloskeys were anything other than white, Garnder wouldn’t have sought to press charges??
If the radical left mobsters had the mandate to promote the 2nd Amendment they couldn’t have done a better job.
We think such wilfully activist judiciaries only help put Trump back in the White House in November. If a couple is going to be prosecuted for defending private property, what hope has anyone got of getting a fair trial? The only way to stop it is to vote it out.
Utterly shameless. Welcome to identity politics under the law. 2020 is so twisted that somehow equality under the law is now viewed as discrimination. Please note we wrote about activist DAs earlier this month. Please refer to this link.
