St. Louis, MO — Lawyers Mark and Patricia McCloskey of St. Louis are facing FELONY charges. News broke this afternoon that the McCloskeys were charged with one felony county each for ‘unlawful use of a weapon.’
The Saint Louis, MO couple made national headlines in June after a mob of Black Lives Matter protestors broke onto their private property and were advancing on their house down their private driveway.
Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner Is A Radical Leftist
St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner filed the charges today against the McCloskey couple — charges that would make both of them felons. But this same Kim Gardner already released all of the arrested protestors from the rioting and looting in St. Louis — and she released them all without charges.
Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt was appalled at Gardner’s actions:
In a stunning development, our office has learned that every single one of the St. Louis looters and rioters arrested were released back onto the streets by local prosecutor Kim Gardner. pic.twitter.com/tMZVAyHssw

Of course, the leftist news media are saying how kind Gardner was in that she didn’t demand that the couple surrender or be arrested. Instead, she issued a summonses and has said that she would “consider them for a diversion program” — a program that would see the charges dismissed if the couple attended counseling or some other remedial action.
The charge against the McCloskeys carries a possible penalty of probation up to four years in prison.
