Missouri governor PARDONS gun-toting St. Louis couple Mark and Patricia McCloskey


Missouri Gov. Mike Parson (inset) announced Tuesday that he made good on his promise to pardon a couple who pointed guns at BLM protesters as they marched past the couple's home in a luxury St. Louis enclave last year. Parson, a Republican, on Friday pardoned Mark McCloskey, who pleaded guilty in June to misdemeanor fourth-degree assault and was fined $750, and Patricia McCloskey, who pleaded guilty to misdemeanor harassment and was fined $2,000. "Mark McCloskey has publicly stated that if he were involved in the same situation, he would have the exact same conduct," the McCloskeys' lawyer Joel Schwartz said Tuesday. "He believes that the pardon vindicates that conduct."
