The McCloskey’s originally made headlines after photos of them pointing weapons at defenseless protesters began to circulate on social media eventually making there way to national news outlets. The protesters were walking through the Central West End gated community to protest in front of St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson’s home.

 

 

Since being charged by St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner with felony gun charges the couple has garnered support from Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, President Donald Trump and Governor Mike Parsons. Governor Parsons even went on record saying he’d pardon the couple if convicted of any charges.

 

AG Schmitt tried to file a motion to have the charges dropped but he has no legal jurisdiction on this case.

 

According to the St. Louis American the McCloskey’s lawyer Joel Schwartz says his clients plan on pleading “not guilty” to the charges.

The charges against the protesters have been dropped and the couples next court appearance is set for next Wednesday (October 14, 2020).
