Louis couple wave guns at protesters marching past their home

Patricia Mc Closkey holds a gun outside her St Louis home

On June 26, a few days before this protest, Mayor Lyda Krewson publicized the names and addresses of various St. Louis residents who had written to her about defunding the police department during a Facebook Live stream, which the mayor has regularly conducted during the coronavirus pandemic. People in the crowd included Black and white protesters.

No charges were brought against them.

Not only do peaceful protesters have to worry about police, they have to also be aware of violence from viliinates.

Journalist Daniel Shular recorded a video of a couple and posted it on Twitter, writing: "A couple has come out of their house and is pointing guns at protesters in their neighborhood".

Protesters are demanding her resignation in part for publicly revealing the names of several Black Lives Matter activists behind calls to defund police and close a local jail. His wife stood next to him with a handgun. Demonstrators have been marching in St. Louis for weeks as part of nationwide protests against police brutality and racism, triggered by the death of George Floyd at the hands of police.

"The group began yelling obscenities and threats of harm to both victims", police said.

"A mob of at least 100 smashed through the historic wrought iron gates of Portland Place, destroying them, rushed towards my home where my family was having dinner outside and put us in fear of our lives", he said.

"This is all private property".

The protesters are shown standing on the sidewalk and the street. We were told that we would be killed, our home burned and our dog killed. In 2018, the McCloskey's were featured in St. Louis Magazine after finishing renovations on their Midwestern palazzo.

Telephone numbers for the McCloskeys were busy or rang unanswered this week. It was unclear when it was damaged. "To alleviate community relations we demand that Mayor Krewson resign from office and a special election be held to replace her".

The video was removed from Facebook and Krewson apologised on Friday, stating she did not "intend to cause distress".

Krewson then read the person's name and the street they lived on, adding the person "wants no police - no money going to police".

"As a leader, you don't do stuff like that.

To be clear, it is shocking and misguided for Mayor Lyda Krewson of St. Louis, to broadcast the addresses of those who dare to express a different viewpoint of an issue of public concern", Sara Baker, policy director of the ACLU of Missouri, said in a statement Friday.
