Trump retweets video of couple wielding guns at protesters

Krewson has been facing resignation demands after recently doxxing residents for writing letters asking to defund the police, and the march Sunday evening was to end at her home to re-up that request.

The couple's "Midwestern palazzo" home was featured in St. Louis Magazine in August 2018 after they completed a major renovation.

Husband and wife, Mark and Patricia McCloskey who are both personal injury lawyers, could be seen aiming the guns at demonstrators who walked by their palatial property in the wealthy Forest Park neighborhood at around 6pm on Sunday. Mark McCloskey is heard shouting.

Patricia McClosky points a handgun at the crowd of about 300 unarmed protesters.

Videos show some protesters attempting to engage in conversation with the couple, telling them to calm down, but others urged them to keep moving instead.

According to the Missouri state law, a person commits the offense of unlawful use of weapons "if he or she knowingly exhibits, in the presence of one or more persons, any weapon readily capable of lethal use in an angry or threatening manner".

The videos travelled around the internet.

Opinion polls show the Republican Mr Trump trailing his likely Democratic rival in the 3 November election, former Vice President Joe Biden, and an increasing number of Americans sympathising with protesters and support policing reforms.


Most news articles reviewed by The Epoch Times neglected to mention how the group gained access to the gated neighborhood.

He said they grabbed their guns when two or three protesters - who were white - violently threatened the couple and their property and that of their neighbours.

The couple said they don't want to become heroes to those who oppose the Black Lives Matters cause, their attorney said Monday.

"They want to make it really clear that they believe the Black Lives Matter message is important".

However, Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner issued a statement later Monday characterizing what happened differently and saying her office was working with police to investigate the confrontation.

"As a leader, you don't do stuff like that ... it's only right that we visit her at her home", said state Rep. Rasheen Aldridge, D-St.

As the video spread across Twitter, it found its way to the US President.
