The criminal justice system does need reform, but not in the way the left typically likes to promote. It needs reform away from the activist district attorneys and judges who turn a blind eye to actual criminals burning up shops, looting businesses and harassing and assaulting others for their beliefs.
Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the armed couple who defended their home without harming anyone in a gated community from an "activist" mob back in June, were indicted by a St. Louis grand jury on Tuesday. The couple is being charged with two counts each, according to KSDK - “exhibiting a weapon and tampering with evidence.”
The McCloskey’s attorney Al Watkins spoke with Fox News about the decision and in no uncertain terms called it “bulls**t.”
“This is bulls**t,” Watkins said. “Hate to say it, but the state has a lot of problems with this one. And they transcend not just the evidence, but they actually are remarkably problematic from the standpoint of prosecutorial misconduct.”
For his own sake, Mark McCloskey spoke about the clear hypocrisy in the way he and his wife are being “persecuted” by the system that has done nothing a single one of the “criminal trespasser[s]” that broke into the McCloskey’s community.
“Every single human being that was in front of my house was a criminal trespasser,” McCloskey said. “They broke down our gate. They trespassed on our property. Not a single one of those people is now charged with anything. We’re charged with felonies that could cost us four years of our lives and our law licenses.”
For all of the left’s talk over the years about fairness, they certainly don’t exercise that belief when it comes to any opportunity to persecute those that don’t think or act precisely as they claim they would.
