|MO: Sen. Josh Hawley calls for civil rights probe of St. Louis prosecutor Kim Gardner over McCloskey case|
Submitted by: email@example.com">Mark A. Taff
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) asked the Justice Department on Thursday to investigate the St. Louis city prosecutor overseeing the case against a couple who pointed guns at civil rights demonstrators last month, the latest move in a battle to cast the incident as either justified self-defense or an act of racial animus.
Hawley’s letter is the latest attack by Republicans against St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, a liberal prosecutor who has sought to reduce incarceration and low-level marijuana cases and has angered the St. Louis police union with her reform efforts.

|Gardner is a hand-picked minion of Soros, whose calculated undermining of our Constitution and society is well-documented.|
As usual, this 'progressive' stands on her head and pronounces the world upside-down.
There is clear evidence that the mob of so-called 'protesters' tore down an iron gate to gain entry to the property, video evidence of their menacing manner, both of which justify taking up arms in self-defense.
The standard for review is the "reasonable person" test; would another reasonable person in the same circumstances perceive an immediate threat to life and limb?
The answer is an unequivocal "Yes."
Gardner is acting as a persecutor, not as a prosecutor.
