Twitter Roasts the St. Louis Couple Who Pulled Guns on Protesters

As hundreds of protesters marched toward Mayor Lyda Krewson's house this evening they were met by a surprising sight — a gun-swinging couple on the lawn of their Central West End mansion.

The couple, personal injury attorneys Mark and Patricia McCloskey, shouted at marchers who seemed to be just passing through the gated community.

The protesters were walking to Krewson's house for a demonstration, part of the backlash the mayor is facing for broadcasting on Facebook Live the names and addresses of advocates for defunding the police department.

When news of what happened hit the internet, Twitter users jumped on the topic and trashed this couple mercilessly. We've collected some of the best responses here.
