If Mark and Patricia McCloskey were Black and brandishing automatic weapons, and screaming “Black Lives Matter,” it would have been the St. Valentine’ Day massacre or the City Workhouse for them (“McCloskeys charged with felonies for waving guns during protests,” July 21).
Might a “Black Lives Matter” sign in their front yard been a better defense? If the McCloskeys have President Donald Trump, Sen. Josh Hawley, Gov. Mike Parson, Attorney General Eric Schmitt, and disgraced former Gov. Eric Greitens in their corner, what’s to worry? With that kind of integrity and intellectual firepower on their side, I’m sure they can sleep well.
Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner should teach them the law. Work on their manner and manners later.
