Mark McCloskey and his wife defended their St. Louis home from a violent mob of criminal trespassers and hoodlums using their guns on June 28th. Yesterday, the St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner charged them with felonies. Last night on Tucker Carlson Tonight, McCloskey hit back.
The lawyer spoke very articulately, saying the Gardner “apparently decided her job as a prosecutor isn’t to keep us safe from criminals but to keep the criminals safe from us. It’s a bizarre upside down world. I’ve been a little irritated by this process until today and now I am just flat out pissed off. This has gotten to be outrageous.”

Carlson gave McCloskey the floor and the attorney delivered a scathing assessment of the prosecutor and her jihad against the law-abiding.
You know, everybody has to stand up and do what’s right. I’m not going to be bullied. I’m not going to be intimidated. The left, the mob, uses social intimidation and threats to get people to knuckle under and apologize for doing what’s right. We are not going to apologize for doing what’s right. We are not going to back down and we are not going to move.
People need to stand up, wake up and recognize this for what it is. It’s a concerted effort to destroy our way of life. To change the fundamental basic social contract. To do away with capitalist democracy and replace it with mob rule, encouraging violence, protecting the criminals and prosecuting the people to try to defend themselves against it. It’s a bizarre world. It’s time for people to wake up and pay attention to it.
Tucker asked what McCloskey was supposed to do?
McCloskey answered by saying he chose to stop the 300 Black Lives Matter and Antifa intruders from coming into his house to break things, set fires and kill him and his wife.
Now facing four years in prison, McCloskey seems optimistic given the support he’s received.
We have gotten support now from the White House on down. Governor Parson, there’s a senator, Eric Schmidt our Attorney General. It seems like the only person in the United States that thinks we did something wrong is our circuit attorney, but she’s the same person that let out of jail everybody that was responsible for the looting and fires and destruction following the George Floyd death in the city of St. Louis. The only people she wants to prosecute are the people that defended themselves against it and nobody else to my knowledge.
There you have it. Kimberly Gardner isn’t a traditional prosecutor advocating for the innocent and prosecuting the criminals. Thanks in large part to George Soros’ generosity, she works as a social justice warrior masquerading as a prosecutor. She releases violent criminals while prosecuting the innocent.
