The McCloskeys indicted on weapons tampering charges – St. Louis, Missouri

The McCloskeys contend the protest was hardly peaceful.

A grand jury on Tuesday indicted the St. Louis couple who displayed guns while hundreds of racial injustice protesters marched on their private street.

Mark and Patricia McCloskey appeared in court Tuesday morning. After the hearing, Mark McCloskey spoke to media and expressed their frustration over the news that the trespassers involved in their case were not charged.

The McCloskeys contend the protest was hardly peaceful. They say protesters came onto the private street after knocking over an iron gate and ignoring a “No Trespassing” sign, and said they felt threatened.
