Wait, were the protests in St. Louis destroying things before or after they strolled by that house? Do we know that for sure? I've seen a few vidoes and everyone seemed calm. 

As far as I know, most or nearly all of these protests are peaceful. There are not mobs rolling through the streets breaking shit. 

This particular protest had to break through a private property gate right in front of this house. At that point it wasn't peaceful anymore. 

Don't get me wrong, based on the video the wife should probabaly be charged but not the husband.

From what I read, they were on their way to the mayor's house. Was the gate for their particular property or for the neighborhood? I mean if it was for the hood, that is a little more complicated. Was the group actually on their property too?

I mean they can protect their property, but that seems like quite the escalation for a group that peaceful except for a gate to head to the mayors place to protest. 


Why are you trying to justify this?  They went on private property.  End of story.  Whatever happens after that is karma.


You’re such a moron

Crashed through? I didn’t see any crashing through of a gate. I saw them walking through the gate, and obviously they Would have had to break the gate open. But I don’t think that constitutes coming outside with a gun the way she did.


So you say they broke through but they didn’t crash through?


You can’t be serious.

You’re acting like they fucking Lord of the Rings smashed their way through the gate like theyre a bunch of Orcs.

I like a few stories down the guy who jumped on a police SUV with it's lights on and said "tHe POliCe rEn InTO mUH!!!!"


Fox keeps running a clip of Thurston Howell III where you can clearly see the "violent" protestors trying to get people to ignore him and move along.

No, if I said "they crashed through like orcs" then you could say that. You are playing word games. If someone broke through my front door of my home, saying they crashed in is synonymous. 


You know this to be true, but being a troll will never admit it.

Man, get off your crazy websites...

To be fair, in the post you quoted, Spock isn't wrong. There have been a ton of looting, rioting, etc in the last few weeks.

We literally said the same thing on this subject.  you’re just arguing just to argue.

From what I understand the gate was private property as that was a private road. As soon as they broke through the gate and was on the road they were trespassing. 


This house was basically the first house past the gate, meaning the gate was broken through and this house was the first one on the private road. I also understand they were not just on the private road, which was still trespassing, but they were also on these people's lawn.

Isn’t that what I said? The wife should probably be charged? 

I think the protestors were wrong for breaking through the gate. The couple were wrong for coming outside and waiving a gun around. Maybe just the woman was in the wrong, but the dude definitely didn’t need to pull out an assault rifle for protestors walking by their house  


Wasn't an assault rifle, due to it not being an automatic rifle. For your information, an AR-15 is not an assault rifle as it can only shoot 1 bullet for each time you pull the trigger.

Scary part is, it only takes one guy to fire a shot at him and then he unloads on the crowd with his AK-47.  That's going to happen, somewhere, at some point.

And it's a pretty reckless move to confront them with guns, because you don't know if some idiot is going to shoot at you.  I would have left the gun just inside the door an arm's length away.   What are you going to do, anyway, if someone does shoot at your or throws something?  You've got no cover.

So a protest breaks into your private neighborhood and onto your lawn, with EVERYTHING going on lately and you don't believe a gun for defense is a proper response?


I believe it was an AR-15, not AK-47, but that's semantics as I was just going off what it looked like.

I said the way you made it seem was incredibly  over exaggerated. Every video they’re just walking through an open gate lol the gate wasn’t barreled over or anything like that. It was opened illegally, yes. But they didn’t crash through it. They’re just going in a gated community on their way to the mayors house , and these inbreds were sitting there with assault rifles.

I am sorry that you have a hard time not turning a normal conversation into hyperbole, maybe that is something you should work on.


The gate was a locked gate, it didn’t open on its own.

The videos only show what happened after it was already open. Broke in and crashed in are synonymous phrases. Everyone else understands that, you happen to think crashed means Avengers Infinity War or Lord of the Rings enormous army battle scenes. 


Believe it or not a single person can crash a gate, it doesn’t have to be hyperbolic like you are making it out to be.


I wonder if the couple had been black if you would have called them thugs rather than inbreds for protecting their private property, which they have the right to do by law?


My guess is your vitriol is only for whitey and you wouldn’t have said a word if it was a black couple using guns to protect their property.

Also, for the second time, it wasn’t an assault rifle. You sound ignorant repeating that over and over. It was semi-automatic which is not an assault rifle.

Say the mayor of Chicago rented an apartment on the 30th floor of your building.  Would you be fearful of a mob illegally opening the main entrance and beating drums marching down your hallway on the way to the mayors apartment?

If you believe in property rights, then you shouldn’t have any issue with the couple coming out armed. If you don’t believe in property rights, then I can understand why you would be rattled. It’s as simple as that.

I love the term "assault" rifle.  


Actually not even a thing.  A gun hijacked by a word about 30 years ago for the purpose of making a semi auto gun seem like a weapon of mass destruction.  


That AR is no different then my 14 shot .22cal squirrel rifle.
