Lawyer couple aim guns at anti-racist protesters in the U.S.

A couple of white lawyers were filmed pointing guns at Black Lives Matter anti-racist protesters yesterday afternoon in St. Louis, United States.

Images shared on social media show the two pointing their guns – a small revolver and what appears to be a semi-automatic rifle – at the demonstrators who marched in front of their home. You can hear them tell the protesters to move on, as many stopped and started filming the scene.

According to the “Business Insider” website, the couple was identified as Mark and Patricia McCloskey. Both are partners of a law firm that bears his surname.

Also according to the report, Mark currently defends a black man who accuses a police officer of assault, while Patricia is a member of the ethics board of the Missouri Bar Association.

The couple may have to answer legally for the act, as there is a state law that prohibits the use of lethal weapons to practice threats and offenses to other people.
