Missouri Couple Fear Indictment For Defending Home

Missouri Couple Fear Indictment For Defending Home

(TargetLiberty.org) – The St. Louis, MO couple who hit the headlines in June after standing armed guard on their home during a protest fear they’re about to face criminal charges over the incident. Talking to Fox News’s Tucker Carlson Monday, attorney Mark McCloskey said, “the rumor is that we are going to be indicted shortly.”

The McCloskeys shot to fame after a Black Lives Matter (BLM) mob broke down the gates to their community and threatened them with violence. The couple stood their ground, standing in front of their home with their legally-owned firearms. Shortly after, district attorney Kimberly Gardner – notorious for releasing every arrested STL rioter without charge – announced she’d be investigating them. Last Friday, police seized McCloskey’s AR-15 rifle. Now, it looks like an indictment is imminent.

It’s not clear under what charge the McCloskeys could actually be indicted. They never left their own property, had no physical contact with any of the protesters, and, under Missouri’s Castle Doctrine, have an absolute right to protect their property.
