The state AG just moved to dismiss the charges.

I guess we'll find out what kind of POS the Judge is if he/she refuses to drop the charges, ala Emmett Sullivan.
We need to re-coin the expression, "Press Bias" to "Media Bigotry."
I will NOT comply.

I thought that flourish was what an undercooked chocolate omelette tasted like?

This hearkens back to the Mike Nifong scandal at Duke.  Like St. Louis, the voter base in Durham is tribal and stooooh-ped.  Our governor and a Dim at the time, so the persecution was allowed to continue for months.  I hope the McCloskeys will bring a suit against the circuit attorney as well as the city.

Probably.  Unless it turns out he had a sketchy lower in the AR15 or something.

Soros-Backed Prosecutor: How Dare You Use Guns To Defend Your Lives, McCloskys! Have Some Felony Charges! Missouri AG: Slow Your Roll

Lawrence Person's BattleSwarm Blog

https://www.battleswarmblog.com/?p=45080

Quote
Incompetent, George Soros backed St. Louis Democratic prosecutor Kim Gardner announced that she’s filing felony charges against Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the St. Louis couple who defended their home against #BlackLivesMatter intruders by merely brandishing their weapons on their own property. In fact, Gardner charged the couple with both a felony and misdemeanor count, evidently intending to pressure the couple into pleading guilty to the misdemeanor charges to avoid jail time.

Enter Missouri Republican Attorney General Eric Schmitt: Homey don’t play that:

    Within hours of the ruling, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt filed a brief seeking to dismiss Gardner’s charges against the McCloskeys on the grounds that their Second Amendment rights are being violated.

    “The right to keep and bear arms is given the highest level of protection in our constitution and our laws, including the Castle Doctrine, which provides broad rights to Missourians who are protecting their property and lives from those who wish to do them harm,” Schmitt said in a prepared statement provided to Fox News.

    “Despite this, Circuit Attorney Gardner filed suit against the McCloskeys, who, according to published reports, were defending their property and safety. As Missouri’s Chief law enforcement officer, I won’t stand by while Missouri law is being ignored,” Schmitt said.

    The brief filing says the attorney general “respectfully requests that the Court dismiss this case at the earlier possible opportunity.”

At least one protester at McCloskey altercation was armed with firearm, sources say

https://justthenews.com/government/courts-law/mccloskey-police-report-allegedly-contained-notes-confirming-claims-armed

Quote
Mark and Patricia McCloskey made national headlines at the end of June when they confronted a mob of protesters outside of their home on Portland Place, a wealthy private street west of downtown St. Louis.

Photos and videos of the couple holding firearms and in some cases brandishing those firearms at the crowd went globally viral. St. Louis prosecutor Kim Gardner charged the pair on July 20 with "flourishing" their guns in an unlawful manner.

Yet sources in the St. Louis Police Department have told Just the News that video evidence from the altercation indicates that at least one member of the crowd of protesters was armed with a gun during the confrontation.

That allegation, if true, could be a key assertion in the McCloskeys' defense. The pair's lawyer has cited the state's "castle doctrine" law, which stipulates that an individual may use deadly force without the need to retreat if he or she "reasonably believes that such deadly force is necessary" to protect his or her own life.

I think it's getting to be time to investigate whether Gardner is abusing her authority by using a frivolous prosecution so that the process necessary to clear their names - probably a year or two if this goes to trial - punishes the McCloskeys.

McCloskeys' attorney files motion to disqualify St. Louis prosecutor Gardner

https://justthenews.com/accountability/political-ethics/holdprelim-write-soros-funder-prosecutor-kim-gardner-accused

Quote
The attorney for the McCloskeys, charged in connection with defended their home against protesters in their private community, on Wedneday filed motions to disqualify St. Louis Circuit Prosecutor Kim Gardner from pursuing their cases.

The attorney, Joel Schwartz, has also asked that Gardner be disqualified from prosecuting the McCloskeys' case, based upon conflicts of interest.

Gardner "monitized and politicized this case," Schwartz tells Just the News, following revelations that the prosecutor's reelection campaign has fundraised off the high-profile case.

Yahbutt!!!  Was the weapon fireable?  Did the crack crime-lab/gunsmiths make sure it could be fired by tampering with the evidence again?

You mean like the BATF "Reconstructing" weapons recovered from the ashes of Mt. Carmel at Waco so they were full auto (no small feat, that)?

The law they 'broke' states that you cannot brandish a firearm or weapon in the face of another, with malice.

There is also Castle Doctrine in Missouri. They were perfectly within their rights to brandish and even USE firearms in the defense of their property after the mob broke down the iron gate and invaded their property.

They are lucky in the heat of the moment that they didn't pull the trigger.

Let's not lose sight of the fact that, had the crime lab not tampered with her pistol, she could not have been charged with the crime she's facing.  A weapon had to be capable of firing at the time she brandished it to support the charge, and it wasn't until the lab got their tampering hands on it.

The crime lab created the charge.

Had they done so, they would have been overrun in short order and likely killed.
What made the threat effective is that no one wanted to be first.

Just like the BATF tampering with the rifles at Waco. Semi-autos were converted (often no easy feat) during 'reconstruction and restoration' to be capable of things the conflict did not indicate were possible (no full auto fire from inside the complex).
