St. Louis Lawyers Mark and Patricia McCloskey Put on Probation by Missouri Supreme Court for Defending Their Home from BLM Mob

What the hell is going on in Missouri?
Trump wins the state by 15 points and we continue to get political outcomes like this?

The Missouri Supreme Court indefinitely suspended the law licenses of Mark and Patricia McCloskey after they were convicted in St. Louis of misdemeanors for holding guns outside their St. Louis home in 2020. The court decided to stay the suspension and put the couple on probation for a year.

Via Epoch Times reported:

The Missouri Supreme Court has indefinitely suspended the law licenses of a Missouri couple convicted of misdemeanors for holding guns outside their St. Louis home in 2020, when a group of protesters, including BLM activists, demonstrated in their gated community.

At the same time, the court stayed the suspension, subject to a year of probation during which the two attorneys–who have become folk heroes among conservatives–must “not engage in conduct that violates the Rules of Professional Conduct.”

For defending their home, Mark and Patricia McCloskey were honored speakers at the 2020 Republican National Convention. Mark McCloskey is currently running for a U.S. Senate seat as a Republican.

Although the McCloskeys, who were pardoned after conviction by Missouri Gov. Mike Parson, a Republican, argued they were justified in holding firearms outside their home to dissuade the crowd, which they said meant them harm, local prosecutors disagreed.
