Freaked out white couple point guns at passing protesters

I understand that this house is in a gated community. And the angry mob are trespassing.
That particular state law permits brandishing and obviously these 2 homeowners are brandishing for the first time because this is such a threatening situation.

I was sure this was a fake, because those two look like such clowns. Neither seems to have ever held a gun before.

The house is NOT in a gated community, it's in the Central West End of St. Louis, an upscale(ish) urban area.

The protestors trespassed into a gated community, so that's why this all seems weird. Normally a house like that would never be so close to a road or sidewalk, as you would normally guess, but in this case the gated neighborhood they are in was being "invaded" (for lack of a better word)

You don’t have the right to point guns at people. What if that stupid bitch accidentally pulled the trigger and shot someone?

This is NOT a gated community. It is a PRIVATE STREET, owned and maintained by the homeowners, not the City of St. Louis.
Portland Place, where this occurred, is one of numerous private streets in the area of the city. Others include Westmoreland Place, Hortense Place, Pershing Place, Washington Terrace, Lenox Place and Parkview Place.

This thread is full of misinformation:
1. The woman pointing the gun is an idiot, but she is NOT the mayor, as R13 and R21 imply. 2. The mayor lives on a different street, a public street, a block or two away.
And lastly, here is a little nugget of info the protesters probably don't know or care about: Lyda Krewson's (the current mayor) husband was shot and killed in an armed robbery attempt, right in front of their home, and right in front of Mrs. Krewson and their children. This happened probably before many of the protesters were even born (1993) so since it's prehistoric to them, and ergo has no relevance to them. And as for as the killer, let's just say white lives didn't matter to him.

Therefore, she has the right to publicly scorn her constituents and release their names and private info. Is that your point? She’s an elected public servant, but because of her personal tragedy, she may not be held accountable.

How could these two not understand that two very wealthy individuals waving guns at passing protesters (who at least looked peaceful) in front of an identifiable landmark mansion is not going to solve the situation, but exacerbate it? Don't these types of neighborhoods have private security that's better suited to handle situations like this?
If these two had been remotely smart, they would have stood out front handing water bottles to the protesters, chatted a little, and wished them a good day. Now they've just made themselves and their neighbors targets. Stupid shits.

Their home is "historic" in that it was one of the estates built by one of the Busch heirs. Augustus Busch gave all of his kids millions of dollars each in about 1900 and they all built various estates, gardens and villas with the money. It's ugly as sin and the decor, which these tacky mofos spent millions tracking down, is heinous.
I don't believe there is private security in the area, I believe the gate is automatic and mostly decorative. But I'm going on memory from what I saw a couple decades ago, so don't quote me on that.
This couple are like a lot of Missouri bigwigs in that they are one or two generations away from poor white trash, as the saying goes. Not hillbilly as some have claimed, but white trash. There's a difference in Missouri. The hillbillies who made good tend to be much nicer and have better taste.

It's not the mayor's house, and yes R28, you said at R13 that this was the mayor's house. It's not.
It's owned by the McCloskeys, both lawyers.
Why were the protesters there anyway? Were they told that was the mayor's house, or that the mayor lived in the area?

Ah, I see the mayor Lyda Krewson lives on Lake Ave, about a block away. Seems the protesters were making their way to Krewson's home and detoured off to the McCloskey house.
Not sure why, since the McCloskey's were known for being liberals, representing protesters and their First Amendment rights. Weird to target them, but also weird for them to start brandishing automatic weaponry that they clearly have not been trained to hold.

Easy there, fella. They are your garden variety MAGAts:
[quote] While some on social media have claimed the McCloskeys are registered Democrats, it was not immediately possible to determine whether the couple are actually registered as Democrats or if they are registered Republicans. But Federal Election Commission records show Mark McCloskey has contributed thousands of dollars to the Trump Make America Great Again Committee, the Republican National Committee and Donald J. Trump for President Inc. He also made contributions to a Republican congressional candidate, Bill Phelps, in 1996, and to the Bush-Quayle campaign in 1992.
[quote] Patricia McCloskey also made a contribution to the RNC in 2018 and to a Republican Senate dinner in 1988.
They just like to make money off poor people and minorities, just like their orange cult leader.

They could have stayed inside. Yeah, they would have been inconvenienced for the whole 2 minutes it would have taken the protesters to walk by and be on their way. But no, they deliberately went outside as a show of power and to provoke a confrontation, under the false assumption they could shoot someone with impunity. They did this to themselves. The ramifications ensuing from their stupidity is on them.

That's aboslutely right. Those of you who think this is acceptable because it's only happening to the "others," need to rethink your outlook. Also, what makes you think these same tactics won't eventually be used on the general population at some point?

No, they were on a private road that had a gate. The McCloskys claim the gate was ripped down but it doesn't look like that in the video. I suspect they just pushed it open, it's not a heavy gate.
These guys are cretins but the protesters weren't on a public road just passing by.
