Mark and Patricia McCloskey became famous when an angry mob of demonstrators was directed into their private neighborhood by demonstration organizers. The couple was terrifically outnumbered. Both sides had weapons. The demonstrators yelled threats; the couple pointed firearms in the direction of the demonstrators. A gate to the complex was destroyed in the process.
Far Left prosecutor Kim Gardner, a supporter of Black Lives Matter, who organized the protest, charged Mark and Patricia McCloskey with “Unlawful use of Weapons”.
The charge, which flew in the face of the video evidence, ignited sympathy for Pat and Mark. Kim Gardner, whose official title is St. Louis Circuit Attorney, used the prosecution as part of her bid for re-election. There were additional charges of evidence tampering, although the tampering seems to have been on the orders of the prosecutor’s office.
Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt called for the dismissal of the charges.
Missouri Governor Mike Parson said he would pardon the couple.

The dog and pony show worked. Kim Gardner got re-elected in 2020.
Did she get more Soros money? I verified through the MO campaign disclosure site that in her initial run she got $hundreds of thousands of in-kind contributions for media buys from a Soros organization.
Soros is all about creating turmoil and disrespect for law.
Isn’t it time we took out the trash?
It's rapidly becoming too late for that. The trash has become a dumpster fire.
Time for Satan to recall Soros.
And the Biden Junta.
