Louis Lawyer Couple Points Guns At Black Lives Matter Protesters

Armed homeowners standing in front their house

In pictures and videos shared to Twitter, the McCloskeys can be seen indiscriminately brandishing their weapons at the crowd, although it's unclear whether or not the guns were actually loaded at the time of the altercation.

A man and woman pointed and waved guns at passing protesters who were on their way to the residence of St Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson on June 28.

The man in the video told local CBS News affiliate News 4 on Monday that the protesters had "put us in fear of our lives". But when protesters breached the gates of the McCloskey's gated community, the couple seemingly chose to go full vigilante to defend their property, known locally as the Neimann Mansion.

"Get out! Private property, get out!" "There are no public sidewalks or public streets", he said. I was terrified that we'd be murdered within seconds, our house would be burned down, our pets would be killed.

"We were all alone facing an angry mob", said the man, who apparently refused to allow his name to be published.

U.S. President Donald Trump retweeted the first video amid a string of other anti-protester tweets on Monday morning.

The clip sparked outrage online.

India is banning 59 apps with Chinese links, saying their activities endanger the country's sovereignty, defense and security. The list of apps that the central government has banned.

Albert Watkins, an attorney for the McCloskeys, said that the couple felt threatened after "two individuals exhibited such force and violence destroying a century-plus-old wrought iron gate, ripping and twisting the wrought iron that was connected to a rock foundation, and then proceeded to charge at and toward and speak threateningly to Mr. and Mrs. McCloskey".

"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.

"In Joe Biden's America your job is illegal, you are locked in your home, borders don't exist, MS-13 lives next door and the police aren't coming when the mob arrives", he wrote, referring to a gang founded in the United States by Central American migrants.

Their home, which was featured in the local St. Louis Magazine after undergoing a renovation, is appraised at $1.15 million.

Resignation demands come after a live briefing, where Krewson read the names and addresses of several residents, who wrote letters to the mayor suggesting she defund the police department.

The names and letters are considered public records but Krewson's actions received a heavy backlash.

The Princeton decision is part of a sweeping reassessment of historical icons and monikers amid growing calls for racial justice following the killing of Black Americans, including George Floyd, whose death under the knee of a white police officer roused world protests. Floyd was pronounced dead May 25 after a white Minneapolis police officer pressed his knee on Floyd's neck for almost eight minutes.
