A couple in St. Louis stood outside their house armed with guns as protesters stormed the mayor’s home to insist she resign after she announced names and addresses of some residents who pushed for defunding the police department.

Armed Couple Defend Their Property

A video has circulated widely on social media shows a man and woman protecting their property on Sunday evening in the Central West End neighborhood in Missouri.

The video showed the man carrying a semi-automatic rifle with the woman holding a pistol as while some protesters stood outside their home and others continued to walk by.

Protesters Demand Mayor’s Resignation

The group of at least 500 people was organized by Expect Us took to the streets to head toward Mayor Lyda Krewson’s residence while chanting, “Resign Lyda, take the cops with you.” ABC News reports.

On Friday, the mayor gave a briefing through Facebook Live, where she read aloud several names and addresses of people who stunted to abolish the police department. The video was soon taken down and Krewson issued an apology later that day and stated that she didn’t “intend to cause distress.”

The full statement reads:

“In an effort to be transparent and accessible to the public during the Covid-19 pandemic, for more than three months now I have been doing tri-weekly community updates on Facebook. Tonight, I would like to apologize for identifying individuals who presented letters to me at City Hall as I was answering a routine question during one of my updates earlier today. While this is public information, I did not intend to cause distress or harm to anyone. The post has been removed.”

According to Breitbart News, the information Krewson talked about was all public record, but that did not halt the extreme backlash that ensued. As of Monday morning, more than 43,000 signatures were received through an online petition calling for the mayor’s resignation.

Protesters Demand Police Defunding

Calls around the country for defunding police have been gaining speed amongst Black Lives Matter protesters and Democrat politicians. On May 25, a man George Floyd died while in police custody, which resulted in continuous violent riots sweeping across the country.

Krewson became St. Louis’ first female mayor when she was elected in 2017 and ran on a platform of reducing crime and improving poverty-stricken neighborhoods. St. Louis currently ranks as one of the most violent cities in the United States, shown by FBI statistics.

A state Democrat Rep. Rasheen Aldridge joined the protest and announced through a megaphone, “As a leader, you don’t do stuff like that … it’s only right that we visit her at her home.”

Will Self-Defense Hold Up in Court?

The couple who stood with guns while on their property could now possibly face legal consequences.

A Saint Louis University lawyer said their behavior could potentially be labeled as an assault by making protesters afraid for their safety.

“People have a right to threaten force if they are threatened,” Lawyer John Amman said to KSDK. “However, if a group of protesters is walking by a home and not doing anything to the homeowners specifically, then they don’t have the right to threaten lethal force without an imminent threat.”

Allegations are being investigated about protesters breaking into the neighborhoods and destroying gates. It is unclear how the protesters were able to get into the upscale neighborhood of the couple with the firearms were residents in.

    SPIRIT OF AMERICA PARTY RADIO SHOW ON YOU TUBE ABUTOMTOM

  3. This is total Liberal B.S. I’ll defend and protect my property, Just as they did! Give the power back to lawful Americans!!!

  4. EVERY AMERICAN HAS A RIGHT to DEFEND THEMSELVES!!!! If a WILD MOB is ON YOUR PROPERTY…I see NOTHING WRONG with STANDING YOUR GROUND!!!! The BLM MOB was WRONG to confront this woman as they did… they have a LONG HISTORY of doing CRAZY THINGS… STOP THE INSANITY!!!! LONG LIVE the POLICE!!!! SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL POLICE!!!!

  5. Idiots, they’re everywhere I tell you! Unbelievable how much B.S. our government at all levels allows. God help us all!

  6. Anyone happen to notice that these ‘protesters standing on their property’ were on their property BECAUSE THEY SMASHED THROUGH THE GATE and presented a viable threat? This is just the kind of half-assed ‘journalism’ that has eroded the already thin credibility of the lamestream, drive-by media.

  7. The protestors broke into the gated community and the two home owners had no way of knowing what the protesters were going to do since most protesters have burned and pilaged hundreds upon hundreds of businesses and/or homes. I sincerely believe they had every right to stand their ground to show they were not going to be the next victims of America’s wave of terrorism. They did not shoot anyone, they just showed force to protect their property. If they are convicted of a crime, it will be because the city is run by DIM-O-CRAPS!

  8. These two individuals are VERY lucky to still be alive today. 1st……these 2 would have never pulled the trigger. Don’t ask how I know this, let’s just say I know what I’m talking about. 2nd….if that female would have pulled the trigger of her weapon, she would have dropped her weapon because her wrist would have been BROKEN! 3rd….Observe the man and his AR 14 or 15. He has no training or practice in the use of that weapon. I would be very surprised if he has even fired more than 25 rounds through that rifle.
    Look, if you own a firearm learn to use it. If and when you are forced to pull your weapon to defend yourself or others, YOU must be willing without thought to take another person’s life!!! If not trained or prepared, please for your own sake, don’t pull a weapon against a bad guy! You will more than likely end up in the morgue on a stainless steel table! THAT IS FACT.
