[Ed. – The right thing to do. The governor says it all.]
On July 19, 2020, Breitbart News reported Gov. Parson pledged to pardon the McCloskeys if they were prosecuted for their actions.
The Hill noted Parson saying he believed the McCloskeys “did what they legally should do.”
Parson added, “A mob does not have the right to charge your property. They had every right to protect themselves.”
On June 17, 2021, Breitbart News observed that Mark McCloskey pleaded guilty to misdemeanor fourth-degree assault and Patricia pleaded guilty to misdemeanor harassment. As part of their plea, they forfeited the guns they were holding when standing outside their home on June 28, 2020.
