Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the St. Louis couple who faced gun allegations after arming themselves against Black Lives Matter protesters near their home last year, are in Kenosha, Wisconsin, to support Kyle Rittenhouse as the jury approaches its deliberations in its process.

The McCloskeys were seen on Monday near the Kenosha County Courthouse as the jury listened to final arguments. Rittenhouse is charged with first degree manslaughter, first degree voluntary homicide and other felonies for shooting three men, two of whom died, in August 2020.

“We feel for Mr. Rittenhouse,” Mark McCloskey told Fox News. “We believe he acted in self-defense.

“We think he has been prosecuted politically, as we have been, and we hope the jury finds him not guilty on all counts and that he can go home as a free man.”

The McCloskeys pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge and were pardoned by Missouri Gov. Mike Parson.

“A young man, he was doing his best to help his country and save businesses here in Kenosha, and as his reward, he threatened the rest of his life,” McCloskey told Fox News.

Mark McCloskey, a Senate candidate in Missouri, said he was in Kenosha to show support for the 18-year-old, who was 17 at the time of the shooting. Rittenhouse’s defense team claims that Rittenhouse fired in self-defense.

“I will not go to court until the jury is out so that we are not accused of interfering with the results in any way,” he said.

The court is meeting tomorrow morning at 10, when the jury will begin deliberations.
