Protesters Break Into Private Neighborhood… Then Armed Residents Fought Back
A group of protesters in St. Louis, Missouri were confronted by armed homeowners after the mob breached private property, threatening their family.
Video of the incident circulated widely this weekend as one man brandished what appeared to be a semi-automatic weapon while his wife pointed a handgun at the trespassers.
Other videos clearly show the unruly group, who were marching to protest Mayor Lyda Krewson for releasing the names and addresses of residents who suggested defunding the police department, entering through a gate clearly marked as “private property.”
The couple defended their home.
Daniel Shular, a photographer for the Columbia Missourian, posted the video on social media.

Media Attacks Couple
Even after seeing clear evidence showing the protesters entering private property and thus threatening the couple’s safety, the media have been feverishly spinning the incident as ‘crazed gun owners v. peace-loving protesters.’
The Washington Post ran a headline that reads: “St. Louis couple points guns at peaceful crowd of protesters calling for mayor to resign.”
“The protesters marching through St. Louis on Sunday evening were armed only with posters and chants,” reporter Teo Armus, failing to grasp the concept of trespassing, writes.
Other video shows the mob had opened a private gate and held it open as dozens and dozens of protesters flooded the property.
CBS News, meanwhile, couldn’t help themselves and simply had to identify the couple as ‘white.’
See, because it has to be a black vs. white narrative for the corrupt media. Never mind the fact that a good portion of the mob was also white, including those standing defiantly on the couple’s front sidewalk.
Missouri has the ‘Castle Doctrine‘ law, which enables people to use deadly force without fleeing if an intruder attempts to enter their property.

The crowd of protesters was taking their grievances to the home of St. Louis Democrat Mayor Lyda Krewson, who drew their ire by reading the names and partial addresses of protesters calling to defund the police during a Facebook Live briefing.
“Resign Lyda, take the cops with you,” they chanted, beating on drums as they marched.
President Trump Monday morning retweeted an ABC News report on the couple standing their ground and defending their home.
Meanwhile, leftists on social media have taken a cue from the mainstream media and done their best to doxx the couple.
“Residents bring out guns against peaceful marchers,” one person tweeted, echoing the Washington Post story.
“Someone identify these people. I don’t know the area. Get an address. I’ll help,” another wrote. “Sue them, ruin their businesses, help their employees sabotage their capital, call their kids, call their family members, call their country club— use capitalism for the weapon it’s designed to be.”
Imagine that – the mob is upset about the mayor doxxing protesters, so they respond in-kind by doing the same exact thing. Brilliant!
