You know the McCloskeys, don’t you? They’re the couple who went viral last year during the “Summer of Love” after they defended their property from the thugs who broke into their gated community.

The corrupt prosecutor ended up filing criminal charges against them and they ended up going through hell all for the sake of exercising their Second Amendment rights.

Here’s a reminder in case you’ve forgotten.

After dealing with the drama from liberal attorneys in Georgia, the McCloskeys’ problems with the incident that occurred last year looks like it’s finally over.

I find it absolutely ridiculous and hilarious when I hear the commentator in the above video say that these were peaceful protesters.

They actually broke down the gate leading into the community because they didn’t have access themselves. Is this what they mean by peaceful? Maybe I’m wrong, but this doesn’t scream peaceful to me.

Thankfully, Missouri Governor Mike Parson has pardoned Mark and Patricia McCloskey this week.

Parson, a Republican, on Friday pardoned Mark McCloskey, who pleaded guilty in June to misdemeanor fourth-degree assault and was fined $750, and Patricia McCloskey, who pleaded guilty to misdemeanor harassment and was fined $2,000.

“Mark McCloskey has publicly stated that if he were involved in the same situation, he would have the exact same conduct,” the McCloskeys’ lawyer Joel Schwartz said Tuesday. “He believes that the pardon vindicates that conduct.”

The special prosecutor, Richard Callahan said, “There was no evidence that any of them had a weapon and no one I interviewed realized they had ventured onto a private enclave.”

Here’s the thing, it doesn’t matter if they had one or not. It’s not the job of the McCloskeys to pat down everyone to see if any of them have weapons before pulling theirs out.

This group of thugs knocked down the entrance to a private and gated community which is an act of aggression. It is well within their rights to draw weapons to keep these thugs at bay.

  • Why did the McCloskeys’ plead guilty? Because defending themselves in a corrupted court and legal system would have cost them 100 times the amount of the $2,750 fine they got.

    We have a legal system and we have a court system. What we don’t have and haven’t had for many decades is a justice system.

    • THEY PLEAD GUILTY TO HARASSMENT AND A 2000 FINE. THE ST LOUIS PROSECUTOR WAS READY TO LAY MORE FAKE CHARGES ON THEM, SO PROTECTED THEMSELVES AND TOOK THE DEAL, HOWEVER…. THE GOVERNOR OF MISSOURI HAS GIVEN THEM A FULL PARDON. THEY ARE BOTH ST LOUIS ATTORNIES.

    • Not sure if I remember the story but aren’t these lawyers democrats? & don’t they represent in court democrat/liberal thugs?
      Didn’t these thugs brake the security gate & threatened to burn their house down & even threaten the lawyers?

      I agree totally that they stood up for themselves so I am glad they were pardoned & by a Republican.

      • I thought when it initially happened, Mark did mention being a democrat. I have heard him say that he supports Trump so I don’t understand where his allegiance is?
        Being from St. Louis, I’ll vote for him!

  • McCloskeys’ were using their 2nd Amendment Rights and protecting themselves and property and should have never had to pay a fine. They were in their legal rights. They should have been totally pardoned. Are the attackers going to be arrested and charged???

    • Absolutely, without question. Not only that, anyone, if put in that situation, has a constitutional right, to defend their home, their family, their property. AKA: The Castle Doctrine. Invasion of privacy is blatant intrusion. How could the people breaking down the gate to the gated community not know it was an exclusive community? Dumb. If those causing the trouble are too dense to figure it out, it is pretty obvious who needs to be fined, thrown in jail and have the law and book thrown at them. I am glad the charges were dismissed. Their money paid in fines needs to be returned to them.

  • ONCE AGAIN, JUSTICE HAS BEEN GIVEN. IF I WERE THEM, I PROBABLY WOULD HAVE FIRED MY GUN IN THE AIR, THEN AT THEIR FEET, JUST TO SHOW THESE DIMOCRAP FOLLOWERS WHO I WAS, AND WHAT I STOOD FOR.

  • What’s that old saying, “Ignorance of the law is not an excuse”? How could they not know they were unless they are way down the wrong side of the bell curve that 100 at the top dead center. That special prosecutor doesn’t seem very bright if he’s making excuses for the demonstrators.

  • While it is good that they were Pardoned Justice will only be served when the Judge that fined them and took their guns is booted from the Bench and forced to replace their guns. That would be Justice since they did nothing WRONG.

  • The pardon is a year late.
    Were the guns returned?
    Were fines refunded?
    Was the racist Black Prosecutor fired and disbarred.

  • I HOPE THEY SUE THE SHIT OUT OF CNN FOR ONLY SHOWING 30 SECONDS OF THE VIDEO NOT THE WHOLE 15 MINUTES OF THE ORDEAL !!!

  • Weapon, schweapon. They “peaceful” protestors could’ve thrown a rock thru a window. They broke down a gate, for Pete’s sake. I don’t think they were coming to borrow a cup of sugar. Why does a “weapon” always have to be a firearm? Sharpened pencil can be a “weapon” if it’s shoved into jugular or someone’s eye. . . .

  • They were forced to surrender their weapons. Where is that in the Constitution? It has never been indicated that the weapons were returned. Surprised that the thugs didn’t return, knowing that.

  • No one realized that they had strayed onto private property. Sounds like a good defense. I didn’t know I was in an area of the Capitol that I shouldn’t’ have been. Does that work for white conservatives or just libtards and their negroes?
