St. Louis Man Who Defended His Home From Criminals SHUTS DOWN Chris Cuomo After He Tries Making Him Out to Be the Bad Guy
CNN host Chris Cuomo recently had Mark McCloskey, the man who was seen in the now-viral video where he defended his home and family by going outside with rifle and telling the rioters to leave the property.
So many news outlets have claimed that they weren’t on private property put were on public property. This is false because everything beyond that gate is private property; it is a private community.
Cuomo tried to make McCloskey out to be the bad guy for “waving a gun around” like he’s some lunatic.
Cuomo asked McCloskey, “How do you feel about becoming the face of political resistance to the Black Lives Matter movement?”
McCloskey kept his cool and calm manner and simple fired right back. He’s an attorney so he knows how to handle himself.
“First of all, that’s a completely ridiculous statement,” McCloskey responded. “I am not the face of anything opposing the Black Lives Matters movement. I was a person scared for my life, who was protecting my wife, my home, my hearth, my livelihood.”
“I was a victim of a mob that came through the gate,” McCloskey said. “I didn’t care what color they were. I didn’t care what their motivation was. I was frightened. I was assaulted, and I was in imminent fear they would run me over, kill me, burn my house. And you have to listen to context in St. Louis where in June 2nd of this year, I watched the city burn, I watched the 7-11 get smashed in, looted, and burned for 40 minutes on live television with nobody showing up to do anything. And I realized at that time, we’re on our own.”
“When bad things happen, they unpredictably turn real bad, real fast,” McCloskey concluded. “That same night, retired St. Louis police captain David Doran was murdered. These things get very bad very quickly. When those people came through the gate, when it was a mob, I didn’t take the time to see their birth certificates or anything else, I was defending my — my house, my life, my wife and what I spent 32 years building there.”
Predictably, Chris Cuomo doesn't like when people come up to him with his family, but if you're someone like Mark McCloskey, he doesn't care about your safety. Instead, he lectures McCloskey as the one who was in the wrong, not the mob.

McCloskey mentions something at the end of the video that is very important to realize as well. He said that there is no way to access the mayor’s house through his neighborhood. So them being there was completely pointless to begin with.
