the couple's lawyer is definitely a trustworthy source... especially since them pointing guns at people walking by their house could be illegal

my theory is the two people were hopped up on Fox & Trump twitter & that's why the reaction then the lawyer told them 'say -they- threatened you!'

Trump put this out a couple days ago

note the present tense on 'mobs rioting & looting across America'... Fox was caught red-handed trying to exaggerate Seattle, plus obaminated was in here claiming cities were burning nightly, so i highly doubt Seattle was their only misinfo

Well , here is the gist that I get.

This lawyer couple lives in the same small gated community that the Mayor lives in. The rioters were pissed at the Mayor for publishing the names of ppl asking her to defund the police.

The rioters broke the gate down to enter the community to get to the mayor's house.

So its not like they were not on private property and broke the gate down to get into it.

yeah, the gated community might save them from breaking the law by pointing guns at people

i just find their story bullshit:

"
Mark McCloskey: We came back to the house. I don't know what time it is, I've been up ever since. I'm a little, I'm a little blurry, but we were preparing dinner. We went out to the east patio, open porch that faces Kingshighway on one side and Portland Place Drive on the south, and we're sitting down for dinner. We heard all this stuff going on down on Maryland Plaza. And then the mob started to move up Kingshighway, but it got parallel with the Kingshighway gate on Portland Place, somebody forced the gate, and I stood up and announced that this is private property. Go back.

I can't remember in detail anymore. I went inside, I got a rifle. And when they, because as soon as I said this is private property, those words enraged the crowd. Horde, absolute horde came through the now smashed down gates coming right at the house. My house, my east patio was 40 feet from Portland Place Drive. And these people were right up in my face, scared to death. And then, I stood out there. The only thing we said is ‘This is private property. Go back. Private property. Leave now.’

At that point, everybody got enraged. There were people wearing body armor. One person pulled out some loaded pistol magazine and clicked them together and said that you were next. We were threatened with our lives, threatened with a house being burned down, my office building being burned down, even our dog's life being threatened. It was, it was about as bad as it can get. I mean, those you know, I really thought it was Storming the Bastille that we would be dead and the house would be burned and there was nothing we could do about it. It was a huge and frightening crowd. And they were they broken the gate were coming at us.

"
Mark McCloskey told KMOV, “A mob of at least 100 smashed through the historic wrought iron gates of Portland Place, destroying them, rushed towards my home where my family was having dinner outside and put us in fear for our lives. “This is all private property. There are no public sidewalks or public streets. I was terrified that we’d be murdered within seconds, our house would be burned down, our pets would be killed. We were all alone facing an angry mob.”
|

i haven't seen any reports of any burned homes or murdered occupants yet along the path of those protesters...

i'll guess they got their guns immediately, and any hostility toward them was because of them waving their guns around

if you felt in imminent fear of death why not take cover inside* & aim out the windows (*or take cover anywhere at all...)

Tw, Oh the story is absolute BS.

What I think happened, was they seen a bunch of amgry black people piling into there neighborhood and a mix of panic and excitement they broke out the guns.

His story sounds like What I would tell the cops.

I'd also bet the threats they heard were closer to.

Guy " this is private property, the cops are on there way"

Random protestor " I'll beat you the fuck up pussy"

this part is particularly unbelievable:

"One person pulled out some loaded pistol magazine and clicked them together and said that you were next."

...so i stood in the wide open w/ no obvious concern, plus none for my wife who was meandering around

one of the better vids:

Obviously they are justified. Its private property, with forcible entry. And a mob with history of violence.

Oh I agree they were justified. But the story is BS. Its what you tell the cops in case this goes to court.

Hopefully this is a wakeup call to the middle/upper class. Get some firearms training. Having money doesn't make you elite; and the elite won't be sharing their protection. Dear Lord, get something better for your wife than a Bryco .380, and teach her how to use it.

And if forced to defend yourself against the entitled mob, be fully prepared for the wave of media screeching, mocking, and derision. Expect to be doxxed. And faggots like tw will defend it.

They're LITERALLY giving guns to the Indians.

Give them Apache helicopters and let the strafe Washington DC, like Daenerys did with King's Landing.

It doesn’t last for long enough of a scene though. Just imagine 12 Apache helicopters with war paint and an ominous actual Apache song about the end of the world as they fly low over the Potomac river. We are talking about a solid 15 minutes of monuments and Trump staff being HELL FIRED! Trump himself dies as the White House collapses on top of his bunker, but he is finally reunited with Ivanka, his true love in life.

Tw

Kinda surprised you didnt use Sutler's death from V for Vendetta, seems more in line with your characterization of Trumps bravery.

Yeah the Ivanka thing is a little wierd. But less spoken about is Biden and his grandaughter.... Just as wierd.

That does not excuse Trumps weirdness.

my complaints are on the lady constantly aiming at people (not merely brandishing)

people who had no interest in them or their property

& the V death scene was not as memorable to me
