    Thanks for the background, it must have been their legally safe position.

    But tbh that’s like me saying I armed myself with an AR, locked, loaded and pointed while I went to a bank so I don’t get shot when and if someone robs the bank.

    however these charges were a total exaggeration to begin with so I don’t mind whatever legal defence they employed.

    Cops have authority and training. That doesn't mean any Joe Shmow can point weapons at people that aren't being arrested.

    They won't admit a fuckup happened but they'll pardon a "partisan" to score political points.

    Doesn't that depend on the percentage of minorities being detained?

    Boo, was anyone's house looted, or anyone attacked that day? Weren't people protesting at the mayor's house in the neighborhood?

    With zero evidence that would have happened if they just stayed in their house watching TV and drinking martinis.

    You must be a giant pussy in real life. An angry mob shows up on your property and you turn up the TV volume and quietly whisper "Please go away...".

    Intruders ignore gates barring entrance. Ignore signs against trespass. Argue with homeowners who ask them to stop trespassing and simply leave. Trespassers don't get shot after breaking the law.

    Libs on Sherdog - The homeowners who exercised Castle Doctrine and Stand Your Ground were wrong. The trespassers were right!!!!

    Nobody, thankfully.

    As far as that neighborhood, you can probably thank the McCluskey's for that. It doesn't really matter if anybody else got attacked that day. We'd been seeing footage of BLM and Antifa stomping unarmed people for months. They had every reason to believe they could be next. Why take that chance? They gave a warning and that mob was smart enough to move along.

    Difference between walking down a street protesting and tearing up shit "peaceful protests".

    Ifcthe protests were actually peaceful and they were just walking down the street then I see the point. If they were tearing shit up as well she had every damn to do what she did . Not a fucking thing wrong with protecting your home.

    A cop can't point his weapon at any Joe Shmow and not be arrested either.

    It's legal for an officer to brandish his weapon if he thinks the suspect is a deadly threat. The same is true for a citizen. There is no legal distinction between the two--there's just the distinction in how we prosecute.

    If it's right and moral for us to disallow citizens from raising their legally owned firearms to protect themselves from a could-be-deadly threat, then we shouldn't allow cops to do the same.

    Brandishing laws are there to keep people from making threats of deadly violence against a person that poses no threat of deadly violence to them--like pulling out a gun in a bar to scare a guy that hit on your girl.

    ah, no. Pushing through a flimsy gate is not even remotely close to forcing their way into the capital by attacking and crushing officers against the door.

    nope. Also in order to charge them with anything they had to be sure the gun was in working order. Are there any cases that lawyer used that gun as a prop? Probably not. And they pled guilty so it is a moot point

    Nobody was attacked or looted because they had guns pointed at them. The protesters broke down their gate and entered their private property as an angry mob. If you don't want to have a gun pointed at you, perhaps you shouldn't break onto some millionaires private property and scream threats at them. People get shot for way less every day.

    Only government humans are allowed to protect themselves with guns. Those are special humans with special rights and powers. All people that work in the government are better than these people.

    You seem completely unstable if you think a group of people walking by your house warrants rushing outside and pointing firearms at them.

    A warning not to do what they weren't doing in the first place. Don't you think you're just looking for excuses by saying they would have been violent but were dissuaded by the aggressive armed homeowners that had to step outside their home to confront people walking by?

    I don't understand A. How FFS it's a crime to point n or brandish your LEGAL fire arms at a mob that has been wrecking shit in their path AND has broken onto your property and B. How anyone LEFT OR RIGHT could defend this shit as being a crime.

    I guess by this shit in St Louis if a burglar breaks in your house ..... you can only stand there with your gun at your side and ask them leave ?

    Even though the gate was broken at some point they were just walking by originally. These two stepped out with firearms and started arguing with them. Other than this confrontation were there any reports of those protesters causing damage that day in the neighborhood?
