Crazy People Are Dangerous

Protesters in St. Louis are angry because . . . Well, does it really matter why they’re angry? They’re protesters. Being angry is sort of a prerequisite for being a protester. “Defund the police” is their demand, because the protesters are Democrats and Democrats hate police.

The mayor of St. Louis is a Democrat named Lyda Krewson, who apparently didn’t get the memo. She doesn’t hate police enough:

In a public briefing broadcast live on Facebook on June 26, 2020, Krewson read aloud the names and addresses of multiple constituents, including a minor, who had signed a petition in favour of budgetary changes which involved redirecting all the money spent on the police department to social services, affordable housing and Cure Violence.

The “defund the police” protesters decided that Mayor Krewson needs to resign, so they marched to her house Sunday. Problem? Mayor Krewson lives in a gated community, and the protest marchers were trespassing when they marched past the mansion owned by Mark McCloskey, who happens to be one of the richest lawyers in the state of Missouri.

 

A couple brandished an AR-15 and a handgun at protesters marching past their mansion in an upscale St. Louis neighborhood.
Husband and wife, Mark and Patricia McCloskey, could be seen aiming the guns at demonstrators who walked by their palatial property in the wealthy Forest Park area at around 6pm on Sunday. . . .
St. Louis police confirmed they were called to Portland Place at around 7.20pm on Sunday night for an incident involving trespassing and assault [with] intimidation after the McCloskeys issued a ‘call for help’.
‘The victims stated they were on their property when they heard a loud commotion coming from the street. 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,’ police said.
‘Once through the gate, the victims advised the group that they were on a private street and trespassing and told them to leave. The group began yelling obscenities and threats of harm to both victims.
‘When the victims observed multiple subjects who were armed, they then armed themselves and contacted police. The investigation is ongoing.’

The McCloskeys have spent more than 20 years, and untold millions of dollars, restoring the Busch-Faust mansion, which was built in 1912 by an heiress of the Busch brewing fortune. The McCloskeys are Democrats (tort lawyers generally are) who have donated to Joe Biden, but you can imagine their panic at seeing a smelly mob of protesters come barging onto their private street. And yeah, if you’re a rich white guy living in a mansion in a Democrat-run city like St. Louis, better keep your AR-15 handy, because . . . Well, you can finish that sentence.
