Louis Lawyer Couple Points Guns At Black Lives Matter Protesters

Hundreds of protesters marching Sunday evening through St. Louis' Central West End neighborhood were greeted by a pair of personal injury attorneys, who stood outside their home brandishing guns.

The Washington Post was unable to independently confirm the couple's identity as of early Monday, at which point a video of the scene on social media had been viewed nearly 9 million times.

To make matters worse (for himself), Trump re-tweeted a video of the McCloskeys holding weapons at protestors, just one day after the president tweeted another video in support of "white power."

A couple in St. Louis, Missouri was seen standing outside a mansion while armed, and staring down nearby protesters.

Protesters in the U.S. have been pushing to " defund the police " since the death of George Floyd and other black people at the hands of police.

In an interview late last week, Hawk Newsome, head of Black Lives Matter of Greater New York, told Fox News host Martha MacCallum that "if this country doesn't give us what we want then we will burn down the system and replace it".

Queen Bey voiced the character Nala in The Lion King: The Gift , the anniversary of which this latest release coincides with. It took one year to produce the film, with Bey working alongside a crew that represented "diversity and connectivity".

In one video posted to Twitter, Patricia McCloskey points her gun at a protester who, according to the Daily Mail, is wearing a T-shirt with the words: "Hands up, don't shoot". "It's a move created to silence dissent, and it's risky". We were told that we would be killed, our home burned and our dog killed.

While emails or letters to elected officials are considered public records in Missouri, the Post-Dispatch reported, these documents and any names or addresses listed on them are usually released to the public only after a records request.

Images on Google Street View show the home just inside the gated community of Portland Place in St. Louis.

It appeared as though the demonstrator's desired final destination was the mayor's house, where they repeatedly called on her to resign, according to the report.

The video was subsequently removed from Facebook, with Mayor Krewson issuing an apology, saying that she didn't "intend to cause distress".

"As a leader, you don't do stuff like that.it's only right that we visit her at her home", said Democrat state Representative Rasheen Aldridge, speaking into a megaphone at the protest Sunday. A sign on the gate says "private street".
