A white couple pointed a handgun and a semiautomatic rifle at protesters who were walking through a gated community in St. Louis, Missouri on July 28.
The homeowner told KMOV that “a mob of at least 100 smashed through the historic wrought iron gates” of their “private street” where there were “no trespassing” signs, which supposedly put his family “in fear of our lives.” At one point, the wife walked towards to the protesters where she exchanged words and waved her handgun (MORE VIDEO BELOW).
The protesters, an anti-police brutality group called Expect Us, were walking to the home of St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson whom they want to resign because she publicly read names and home addresses of people — who called for police reform — during a Facebook Live video, notes the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
After being called out for doxing critics of the police department, Krewson apologized and deleted the Facebook post, reported The Hill.
Author Jonathan Myerson Katz tweeted that the husband, who was carrying what may have been an AR-15, could have been violating Missouri law.
