Louis Lawyer Couple Points Guns At Black Lives Matter Protesters

Louis Lawyer Couple Points Guns At Black Lives Matter Protesters

In multiple videos, including one that had more than 13 million views by Monday morning, Mark and Patricia McCloskey are seen aiming their weapons at the protestors.

A white couple pointed guns at protesters in St. Louis, Missouri, as the group marched toward the mayor's home, demanding her resignation.

The man was seen wielding what seemed to be a AR-style rifle, and the woman had a handgun.

Those calling for her resignation accused the mayor of intimidating protesters through "doxxing", the Internet-based practice of publishing someone's personal information as a vehicle for revenge via the violation of privacy.

Video shows the protesters walking through an open gate.

Many critics described the couple as "Ken and Karen", playing on the viral "Karen" nickname for white women who bring their trivial complaints to authority figures.

Anthony Fauci of the National Institutes of Health told The Associated Press. "This is not a race of who comes first". "Jointly developed by CanSino and the Institute of Biotechnology under the Academy of Military Medical Sciences ".

The home belonged to a pair of lawyers in 2018, according to a profile published at the time by St. Louis Magazine. On Friday afternoon, Krewson read aloud on a live web stream the names and addresses of several activists advocating for the police department's funding to be cut. When the victims went to investigate the commotion, they observed a large group of subjects forcefully break an iron gate marked with "No Trespassing" and "Private Street" signs.

Krewson, a white longtime alderwoman, was elected as St Louis' first female mayor in April 2017 by pledging to work to reduce crime and improve impoverished neighbourhoods.

The crowd then proceeded to rally outside of Mayor Lyda Krewson's house, pushing through police barricades to the yard and the front porch, and painted the word "RESIGN" on the street outside the house.

Hours later, Krewson said she was sorry for the transgression and took the video off the Internet, writing, "Never did I intend to harm anyone or cause distress".

State representative Rasheen Aldridge told protesters on Sunday: "As a leader, you don't do stuff like that.it's only right that we visit her at her home".
