    St.Louis Police Finally Crack Down on Protestors

    Twist - couple is charged with 4th degree assault by intimidation...

    Anders Walker, a constitutional law professor at St. Louis University, said that although it's "very dangerous" to engage protesters with guns, the homeowners broke no laws by brandishing or pointing weapons at them because Portland Place is a private street. He said they are legally protected by Missouri's Castle Doctrine, which allows people to use deadly force to defend private property. "The protesters thought they had a right to protest," Walker said. "But as a technical matter, they were not allowed to be there ... It’s essentially a private estate. If anyone was violating the law, it was the protesters. In fact if (the McCloskeys) have photos of the protesters, they could go after them for trespassing."

    St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly M. Gardner appeared to take a different view, releasing a statement Monday that said she's "alarmed at the events that occurred over the weekend where peaceful protestors (sic) were met by guns and a violent assault." Gardner said her office is investigating. "We must protect the right to peacefully protest, and any attempt to chill it through intimidation or threat of deadly force will not be tolerated," Gardner said. "Make no mistake: we will not tolerate the use of force against those exercising their First Amendment rights, and will use the full power of Missouri law to hold people accountable."

    Reminder, breaking down gates and storming private property = "peaceful protestors"

    LOL, this must have been focused grouped and sent to all the journalists, because peaceful and "mostly peaceful" protestors is appearing everywhere now.

    In before, "They were peacefully protesting at 1PM, you are confusing them with people somewhere else" and "The residents of Portland Place don't have a right to have an empty street in front of their house..."

    "Peaceful" sure is an elastic term these days. What's next? "Peaceful breaking and entering"? "Peaceful rape"? "The peaceful protesters then peacefully lined their targets up against a wall and peacefully shot them all"?

    A variation on “The Outlaw Josey Wales”:

    Fletcher: “You said those men would be peacefully treated!”

    Senator Lane: “They were. They were peacefully fed, and then they were peacefully shot.”

    Maybe she will have the couple arrested and jailed. Got to make an example of anybody standing up to the mob.

    So breaking into private property is “peaceful,” but the owner of that private property standing in their own yard with a gun is “violent assault.”

    I wonder how “Kimberly M. Gardner” will react to a “peaceful” protest in her neighborhood? It wouldn’t be a surprise if she had 24/7 police or private security protection around ​her “private property’.

    I noticed in the top picture in the link, a protester is wearing welding gloves. I bet things would have really heated up if they weren't met with any resistance, on private property.
    How dare they defend their property.
    How dare police defend themselves from attack.
    Apply purple where needed.

    After reading the article, I think the protesters are the ones being charged. Maybe I'm wrong on this.

    Police are continuing the investigate the incident on Portland Place but are labeling it as a case of trespassing and fourth-degree assault by intimidation.
