Aston Martin and The Little Car Company have built a very cool and very expensive little James Bond DB5 with toy machine gun headlights.

This is good news, but the headline is misleading. Protestors broke through a gate to cut through a private neighborhood rather than walk around it on public streets, making them rioters, and were yelling threats at the couple who happened to be outside their house at the time. That is a shame🥵 Good!!

White privilege! Typical BS Yes!!! Justice served Licensed gun owners defending themselves from that terrorist org. Black Criminal Thug Lives Matter, from attacking them coming onto their property/into their homes. Amazing how this story gets over pandered to by u media libs. But BLM destroyed cities last yr gets less airtime !

Good. Your allowed to defend your property from a mob. Don't like it? Too bad What A Shame ! The framing…. Sounds about white

Surprised? Missouri is not a standard your ground state. Negligent handling of firearms (fingers on triggers, pointing at people, etc). Zero damage to theirs or any other properties. But the governor and them must be part of the same Klan. Of course they're pardoned. 🙄 Sounds about white Yup .. rich people can get pardon easily in America

This shows so much division and hatred towards each other. This couple can’t show their guns if you protest through your ballet paper and show your exit finger. Respect and equality need to be earned, they don’t come for free. No wonder… it’s Missouri. Got racially profiled many times while living there.

It's Missouri, what do you expect from the hairy armpit of the country? whiteprivilege

Apparently white on black crime can't exist in Missouri. Or is it just rich white on black crime? Either way, avoid Missouri if you're a fan of the rule of law. That’s great news seeing as it is no illegal to defend your home from trespassers who threaten you. Muito justo ! Eles só estavam se defendendo !

If that crowd had been dangerous, armed and violent, look at those two fat targets standing there. They would have had twenty holes in them each before they hit the ground. Guns don't make you bulletproof, but they do give you an inflated ego. Disgusting. No foul! No play! Absolutely ridiculous, white privilege at its finest. Bullshit

Awesome news, it should of been those criminals from BLM who should had been charged They weren’t just charged. They pleaded guilty and were convicted. Oooooh 😵

‘We are doing this to save lives’: Biden ships 110 million Covid vaccines abroadPresident Joe Biden announced that the U.S. has shipped out 110 million Covid-19 vaccine doses to 65 countries that are among the hardest hit in the world. Biden said the donations are “no strings attached” will “save lives.”

Bit of course he did. Must be nice being white I’m sorry, America We are quite a mixed-up state when it comes to the Gov deciding as to who is worthy & who is not - of a pardon. Undoubtedly, this clears the way for him to run for Sen Blunt’s seat? Are there really no candidates available who can demonstrate a moral center?

Good. Thugs on private property should never feel safe. Mark McLoskey is currently running for office as a republican. That judge is a republican.
