Okay here are 2 of the biggest morons on the planet. Yes they have a right to defend their home but the also have the right to not be so stupid. The protesters weren't the least bit concerned about them until they came out of their house waving guns. Which BTW the husband pointed that thing at his wife inadvertently several times.


Also of note, check out their little 19,000 square foot bunker:

Piss poor situational awareness.

Should have been on the roof. Lay down a much better field of fire from up there without the chance to be overcome by numbers so quickly. Hopefully he learned something here, like don't live next door to politicians.

Not the best display of gun safety. But I don’t know that we can definitively say they had no reason to be fearful of damage to their property or even worse. I’m not going to judge these people without having been in their shoes. The way the mob was speaking to the lady tells me they are not the classiest bunch to begin with.

It looks like the protesters are on their property. Based on very recent history of destruction of personal and public property and the fact that reports stated they already busted through the HOA gate... they might have looked silly, but not sure we can say not justified.
What am I missing?

I'm no socialist when it comes to redistribution; pretty far right on all economic issues. But as an individual, I can't imagine living comfortably in that house.

I'm also not a Christian, but I would be very curious on their religious background as many wealthy white families claim Christianity as their religion. For the resident Christians on the board, what is your take on wealth like this? Not so much passing judgement on the family because we don't know their situation (other than being shit gun-owners), but if you had access to that kind of wealth, would you be ok building/buying a house like this and leading this kind of lifestyle?

I think they escalated the situation unnecessarily. There's a pretty high probability they could have waited inside, with guns ready, 10 more minutes and nothing would have happened. As it turns out nothing happened other than the whole world discussing their actions. If some in that crowd were also armed, they took a big chance on escalating things.

Also, not everyone comes in the light of day announcing their arrival with drums. If they offend enough people someone may decide to leave a little reminder for them one of these nights.

As far as being on their property, I think the protesters did break through the neighborhood gates, but this is actually a side entrance and the sidewalk comes relatively close to their house. They weren't the target.

I don’t think the protesters are on their property, but rather right up to the property line. Had the protesters just walked by and ignored those two then the gun wielders would look stupid. However the mob acted aggressively and hateful towards the two thus justifying their concern.

I don't know. If I'm already mad about the way society is treating me based on race or class, and a couple of rich ****'s come out waving a gun at me, I'm not just ignoring them.

As is often times the case, there’s no indication that race was a factor.
No but it's a safe bet race or class was a factor. These aren't a bunch of corporate Senior VP's storming the Mayor's house, and lately most of the protests do have the racial element.

just so everyone is on the same page of why the protesters were going to the Mayors house

They were marching to call for her to resign after she went on a Facebook live event and started naming names and giving out addresses of people who had written the city calling for reduced funding for the police dept.

Something she later apologized for and said it was wrong for her to put out that info with names and addresses

I couldn't answer that without knowing more about them. Do they give to charity? Do they give to their/a church? How much compared to what they make? 10%? Less? More?

Love of money is a sin. Simply having money is not. I was taught to tithe 10 percent and I don't currently do that even though I consider myself a Christian...so who am I to judge their potential hypocrisy.

I’m hearing tale that it is private and that a neighborhood gate was breached. In this day and age I’m not sure but does it make a difference?

How nice is this house that this is actually the side entrance. I looked at it on google maps and the sidewalk does come up relatively close to the house on that side.

Legally I don't know but it does add to the fear factor. They had probably been watching all the scary things on TV, then they look at the window of their little secure gated community and see a bunch of protesters. I can see how it would rattle some, but I still say, be cool for a few minutes (with guns nearby).

Holy crap I can't even judge rich people anymore? What do I have left?

BTW, going to church and praying befor dinner is all good, but it gets real when you have to write checks.
