Fox News is reporting that police have searched the home and confiscated the weapons of a St. Louis couple that were filmed holding guns while protecting their home from a mob of protestors that had entered a private gated neighborhood.
Authorities in St. Louis executed a search warrant Friday evening at the home of Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the couple who made headlines last month when they took up arms to defend their home from protesters.
There was no immediate indication the McCloskeys were arrested or charged with a crime. The warrant applied only to a search for the guns, KSDK reported.
On Monday, the McCloskeys appeared on Fox News’ “Hannity” and disclosed that protesters had returned to their neighborhood July 3 – but the couple was alerted in advance and hired a private security company to protect their residence.
If this is any indication that prosecutors are moving against the McCloskey’s, a grave injustice is being done.
Americans can’t fail to notics that mobs of trespassing protestors can riot, burn and assault their way across American cities, and the police will do nothing. But when middle-class home and business owners seek to protect what is theirs, police move in and suddenly start to act.
This is a tipping point in history – will the American system of justice survive?
