middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« Dear kind readers who read my or will read my fresh post about the McKloskeys: It appears the St. Louis authorities will not drop the charges against the McKloskeys, and it’s sure the McKloskeys will defend themselves making an interesting upcoming trial. Since you’ve made it this far the case is sure to be interesting — stay tuned. Sincerely, Tom Doody. The issue with private streets is they don’t look private. Other than a private-property sign that could easily be missing or defaced the private street appears and is treated as public by UPS, Fedex, DHL, and other delivery pros. There is a valid argument that the McCloskeys had the right to brandish deadly weapons in a threatening manner, because the street is the property of their homeowners association giving the McCloskys the right to defend their property as they did. Dear kind readers: The following pedophile example is abstract, but stay with me. Sincerely, Tom Doody. Just as the private street looks public a pedophile could make part of his yard look like a public kiddie park. Part of a large lot could have a fence that separates it from the rest of the private property. Over years adults take children there to play, and then the peodophile dies. The estate sells his home, and the new owners continue to treat the private play lot like a neighborhood public recreational space. A black person appears in the kiddie lot with kids, and the homeowner does what the McCloskeys did. The kiddie lot in this hypothetical example is private space disguised as public space just like private streets. If the McCloskeys are acquitted, then brandishing deadly weapons to not-threatening people is acceptable just because of where they are. As a delivery professional I find myself in wrong places. Sometimes my app misdirects me, sometimes I make navigational errors, and sometimes I overlook a sign that tells me to get the doorman announcement first. For these innocent errors I should not be greeted by people brandishing deadly weapons like the McCloskeys greeted the BLM protesters. There are many non-malicious reasons to explain ending up in the wrong place, and it should never authorize anyone to do what the McCloskeys did to the BLM protesters. »» about me 302-990-2346
