Couple draw guns at crowd heading to St. Louis mayor's home

"This is all private property".

Krewson, a longtime alderwoman, was elected St. Louis' first female mayor in 2017 by pledging to work to reduce crime and improve poor neighborhoods. No other police reports were filed that night, a department spokesperson told Fox News.

The US stand-off came after mayor Lyda Krewson read names and addresses of residents who had written asking her to defund police.

After St. Louis lawyers Mark and Patricia McCloskey went viral for confronting protesters with firearms, calls circulated on social media for their immediate arrest, with lawyers alleging the couple committed assault.

In true 2020 form, there is a harrowing answer to Bonnie and Clyde and it's "Ken and Karen", a white St. Louis, Missouri, couple who pointed loaded guns at a group of Black Lives Matter protesters marching past their lavish property on Sunday. The station could not confirm whether the gate was damaged by protesters, however.

The St. Louis couple caught on video brandishing guns in the front yard of their home while protesters passed through their private neighborhood are being investigated by local law enforcement.

Supporters of the protesters turned the McCloskeys into memes.

NASA releases stunning 10-year time-lapse of the Sun
NASA's video condenses the past decade into a 61-minute-long video, with each second representing approximately one day. Since launching in February 2010, the NASA probe has documented the Sun with daily high-resolution photography.

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

"My clients, though, had to deal with comments that were from two individuals that were perpetrating these acts of violence and, not charging, but coming toward them and doing so in a fashion that was threatening, menacing and in a fashion inconsistent with the Black Lives Matter message". "When the victims observed multiple subjects who were armed, they then armed themselves and contacted police".

She later apologised and removed the video but 500 people marched in protest on Sunday, chanting: 'Resign Lyda.

The names and letters are considered public records but Krewson's actions received heavy backlash.

The Princeton decision is part of a sweeping reassessment of historical icons and monikers amid growing calls for racial justice following the killing of Black Americans, including George Floyd, whose death under the knee of a white police officer roused world protests. She and her two young children were in the auto in front of their home in 1995 when her husband, Jeff, was slain during a carjacking attempt.

"As a leader, you don't do stuff like that.it's only right that we visit her at her home", said state Rep. Rasheen Aldridge, D-St.

Homicides have spiked in recent years in St. Louis, which annually ranks among the most violent cities in the nation.
