Missouri Gov. Mike Parson pardons couple who brandished guns at peaceful protesters. Mark and Patricia McCloskey pleaded guilty to misdemeanour assault and harassment in June. On June 28, 2020, video and photographs showed the couple brandishing their guns in front of their mansion as protesters marched through their gated community amid nationwide protests after a police officer killed George Floyd in Minneapolis.
They were among 12 people granted pardons by Parson on Friday. The couple says they are "thankful" for Parson's support.
