For example, every single one of these offices don't believe people of color should be charged with crimes because it's racist. What's happening to this St. Louis couple is a perfect example. They had every right to protect themselves and their property against illegal trespassers who broke into a gated community. The people who broke in are not being charged but the couple is. It's a travesty of justice!
Fox News reports St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner said Monday she's charging the couple who flashed guns at a crowd marching to the mayor's office last month with felony unlawful use of a weapon.Gardner, the city's top prosecutor, told The Associated Press that Mark and Patricia McCloskey also faced a misdemeanor charge of fourth-degree assault over the June 28 incident. "It is illegal to wave weapons in a threatening manner -- that is unlawful in the city of St. Louis," Gardner said.

However, the McCloskeys have said many times they were defending themselves, with tensions high in St. Louis and other cities over race and law enforcement. They said that the crowd of demonstrators broke an iron gate marked with "No Trespassing" and "Private Street" signs, and that some violently threatened them.
