Mark and Patricia McCloskey

Just putting this here so I can refer back to it later: Portland Place couple who confronted protesters have a long history of not backing down

The McCloskeys have filed at least two “quiet title” suits asserting squatter’s rights on land they’ve occupied openly and hostilely — their terms — and claimed as their own. In an ongoing suit against Portland Place trustees in 2017, the McCloskeys say they are entitled to a 1,143-square-foot triangle of lawn in front of property that is set aside as common ground in the neighborhood’s indenture.

Just because people are assholes doesn't mean they deserve injustice in return.

If the reverse were true then there shouldn't be such a big deal about George Floyd or Rayshard Brooks.

Yeah, I'm not sure where the injustice is: They brought out firearms to threaten people on a right-of-way that definitely had pedestrian easements.

Grab the popcorn, because the St. Louis police tampered with the evidence in order to charge the McCloskeys.

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
