A Kentucky couple was fitted with ankle monitors and placed on house arrest after the wife tested positive for coronavirus but refused to sign self-quarantine documents, according to reports.
Elizabeth Linscott said she got tested for COVID-19 as a precaution because she was planning to visit her parents in Michigan. She received a positive test result but showed no symptoms.
She said the Hardin County Health Department asked her to sign documents agreeing to call them any time she left her house. The young mother claims she never refused to self-quarantine but said she would not sign the documents because of how they were worded, WAVE reported.
“My part was if I have to go to the ER, if I have to go to the hospital, I’m not going to wait to get the approval to go,” Linscott told the station.
After opting not to sign the health department papers, Linscott said she received a text message informing her that the situation would be escalated and law enforcement would be involved, KABC-TV reported. Her husband, Isaiah, said he was greeted by officers at their front door later that week.
“I open up the door, and there’s like eight different people, five different cars, and I’m like ‘what the heck’s going on?’ This guy’s in a suit with a mask. It’s the health department guy, and they have three papers for us. For me, her and my daughter,” Isaiah Linscott said.
“We didn’t rob a store. We didn’t steal something. We didn’t hit and run. We didn’t do anything wrong,” Elizabeth Linscott added.
The couple said they were fitted with ankle monitors that go off if they stray more than 200 feet from their home.
The City Officials should all be confined to home for the rest of t he year meaning they can not leave their home at all Sounds like Extortion to me and that’s a Crime
This is insanity.
The 1938 movie Jezebele with Bette Davis and Henry Fonda puts today’s COVID-19 measures into perspective. The story tells of an 1850s yellow fever epidemic in Louisiana. Nobody had a clue about mosquitoes. State, county and local officials established patrolled “fever lines” as part of their containment effort. If you crossed the fever line, you were subject to being shot on sight. Houses with a fever victim were marked with paint; the sick and the dead alike were hauled off together in guarded wagons, day and night. Men with torches hammering on the front door could be a death sentence. It’s a compelling movie. If you have TCM on cable, you can stream it on demand from the TCM website.
Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the Central West End couple who confronted protesters June 28 with a rifle and a gun in Mayor Lyda Krewson’s neighborhood, have been charged with unlawful use of a weapon/flourishing. And assault, really This will be interesting.
Fascist democrats flexing their tiny legal muscles and straining their itty bitty brains to intimidate citizens from exercising their rights.
Bake the cake, sign the paper, let those violent gate smashers criminally trespass and terrorize taxpayers!
To flourish is to find fulfillment in our lives, accomplishing meaningful and worthwhile tasks, and connecting with others at a deeper level—in essence, living the “good life” (Seligman, 2011). … Seligman initially believed that happiness was composed of three factors: positive emotions, engagement, and meaning.

The McCloskeys should be charged and hopefully will be convicted. Pointing guns at people is not something to be taken lightly. It goes far beyond simply displaying a weapon. None of the protesters were armed. None were anywhere near these people. The McCloskeys were not only threatening violence, but demonstrating an immediate ability to kill and the possible intention to do so. In doing that they crossed the legal line from threatening words to statutory assault. They’ll probably be charged with a felony.
This is astonishingly stupid behavior on the part of a couple of attorneys.
@Greg: Have you seen the video? he never pointed his gun , it may not have even been loaded as no ammo was found during the search, her ” gun” was a prop aka a toy, from one of his former cases.
As you may know a long rifle is brought up to your shoulder to be aimed.
What of Bidens advice to fire into the air?
Criminal trespass, property damage, yes they were threatened by the mob, this was private property, they were on their way to threaten the mayor.
The definition of an assault is make a physical attack on, the Soros financed prosecutor will have some problems proving that lie in a court room.
The Governor awaits with a full pardon should they get judge shopped.
Astonishly ignorant behavior of the commie BLM crazed prosecutor.
As you might not know, quick kill, quick fire, or point shooting was taught to an entire generation of soldiers who carried M16 rifles in Vietnam. I was trained in that myself at the end of traditional rifle training. It doesn’t involve shouldering your weapon or taking sight aim and is highly effective at close and near ranges. Had he shouldered and pointed the weapon the assumption would be that he fully intended to fire it.
Pointing a prop handgun at someone is a very good way to get shot. I would have immediately misidentified the toy she was pointing as a .380 Walther PPK/S.
They needed to be charged to clearly imprint on people’s minds that this is not something a gun owner can do and expect no legal consequences.
Meanwhile, this soros placed piece of shit should have charged the pukes(democrats) who trespassed on private property. Time to charge the Antifa embeded prosecutrix for violation of 18 U.S.C 242. Had the McCloskey’s not defended their property, these vagrants would have destroyed the home and done much more. This mob was a group of violent rioters. Each one of them had broken the law by trespassing on private property. This case will never end in a conviction. The McCloskey’s refused to be killed, they refused to be maimed, they refused to have their house destroyed by this mob and somehow they are the perpetrators?
@Greg: They didn’t point their weapons at anyone. They showed the riotous mob they were prepared to defend themselves. Showing their weapons and determination probably SAVED lives.
A violent mob trespassed on their property; they weren’t “peaceful”. They didn’t “peacefully” tear down the gate to the community. This is nothing but police state oppression of a Constitutional right.
How would a peaceful, unarmed protest shoot anyone? Ooops.
They called police; none came. This is how it’s going to be, going forward, thanks to the left and their destruction of police forces. Citizens are going to arm themselves and protect themselves and their property. If your left keeps promoting violent insurgency, someone is going to be shot very soon. Of course, this is EXACTLY what the left wants, sacrificing someone else’s life to create another issue to incite more violence with.
In fact, anyone that shows up to testify against the McCloskey’s should be arrested on the spot because if they could testify, they were obviously a part of a riotous mob that destroyed property and was trespassing. I wonder if getting that message out would hurt the prosecution any?
No they shouldn’t, you dumb Marxist f*ck.
@Greg: As you might not know, quick kill, quick fire, or point shooting was taught to an entire generation of soldiers who carried M16 rifles in Vietnam, does that young man look like a Vietnam era veteran to you?
Sure Ive seen Rambo movies, by the way we seem to have lost that war the effectiveness of not properly aiming the M16 might have been part of that.
The way the Mrs was waving her prop around behind her hubbys head horrified many gun owners that saw the video, no doubt she couldnt purposely hit the broad side of a barn if it was real.
They broke no laws, the mob did, this is just marxist terrorism coming from the ignorant prosecutor..”Dont think you can defend your self in this town!” Many dont like the message she is trying to send.
I hope this works out for the couple and they both go get proper firearms training from a certified instructor.
I also hope the citizens of St. Louis recall the crazy woman trying to persecute and prosecute innocent citizens for political overthrow of the USA.
Oh yes, the usual law-abiding citizens defend themselves with guns and the true aggressors, antifa, are victims.
This is how cowards like you with no knowledge how to handle and own a gun try to take it away from everyone else.
Traditional rifle technique is ideal in open field environments, but not an effective response to close range ambush attack a jungle environment. That realization came in Vietnam by way of harsh experience. It was what led to the quick kill training program, and in part to the retirement of the M14 in in favor of the lighter M16 which was controllable with full-auto short burst firing.
Rambo movies were created with entertainment in mind. I knew no Rambos in Vietnam. I was anything but.
@Greg: The Prosecutor is going to get her ass handed to her in court.
I know you were no Rambo, not fighting the commies then or now.
I am not accepting your marxist revised definition of assault.
I say I’m gonna kick you OMG she has feet! I dont kick you but by your definition you have been assaulted…. dumbass.
Hey play this with sound on its really good.
Assault laws vary from state to state. The McCloskey’s live in Missouri. In Missouri a person can be charged with Fourth Degree Assault if he or she “purposely places another person in apprehension of immediate physical injury”. Following through with the actual physical attack isn’t necessary to be charged. I don’t know what else they might be charged with. Idiots with guns are too common for me to research all of the possible legal consequences of their behavior. People who become more cocky or confrontational when they have guns probably shouldn’t.
In Indiana, someone in the crowd lawfully carrying a concealed firearm might have taken it out, shot one of them, and then asserted that they feared for their life and acted in self defense. The McCloskeys can expect legal consequences for behaving like idiots.
@Greg: The Prosecutor is going to get her ass handed to her in court. She is a marxist imbicile 1 term moron.
. A person commits criminal trespass by entering someone else’s property … some states impose terms of life in prison for armed home invasion burglaries.
No, it’s not but Missouri has the Castle Doctrine as law and if you, your family or your property is being threatened, you have the right, in Missouri, to protect it.
And you know that how? How do you know that someone was not carrying a concealed weapon shove in their back waistband? So prove your claim that no one was carrying.
Provide Missouri code that agrees with you.
And while you’re at it, provide Missouri trespassing laws. Parkland Place in St. Louis is all PRIVATE property, not city property, including the street the houses sit on.
I think we should have a thread here at FA called:
The Dumbest Things Comrade Greggie Says
The McCloskeys don’t live in Indiana, moron.
The McCloskeys did nothing wrong. In fact had they shot one of the rioters they still would not have broken any law.
They’d be looking at possible prison time instead of just court dates, legal expenses, possible fines, and the possible loss of any firearm permits they might hold.
I didn’t say that they did, Gruntilda.
@Greg: Missouri is a constitutional carry state, no permit is required to carry a firearm if you meet the requirements to possess a firearm.
Carry In Vehicle YES
Must Notify Officer NO
Carry In State Parks Allowed YES
No Weapons Signs Enforced SEE DETAILS
Open Carry Permitted YES
Carry In Restaurant YES
Constitutional Carry YES
Castle doctrine allows individuals the right to protect themselves and their property.
The Castle Doctrine does say that you can defend yourself or others with lethal force, but no automatic assumption is made by the law that such a threat was real. You’ll have to convince the authorities that this was so. It does not give you an airtight defense if you use lethal force only to protect your property.
The less some people know, the more they seem to think they know everything.
@Greg: Hey stupid they didnt shoot anyone. it legal to open carry in MO.
I see you are self reflecting
The rioters who trespassed onto private property broke the law in Missouri.
When Trespassing Becomes Breaking and Entering in Missouri
Perfect. You make the case that the McCloskey’s were totally justified in their armed response to screaming, threatening mobs of rioters that had just broken down a gate to gain trespassing access to private property. THANK YOU.
Now we learn that the inoperable gun mrs mccloskey
had on June 28 was returned to her in operable condition. Uh, that is tampering with evidence.
They didn’t USE lethal force, Greg.
All they did was brandish.
That’s perfectly legal.
Even in CA, when I held a gun pointed at the man who was considering jumping from the house he had run into into my place thru an open window, the police said it was cool.
Later police asked if they could shoot tear gas from my place into where he was to try to flush him out.
They did but it don’t work.
They finally stormed the house next-door guns in hand.
@July 4th American: Its what they do The firing pin and spring were reversed so they fixed it so charges would stick against the Mrs.
Nov 21, 2019 – The new evidence concerning the altered document, which pertained to the FBI’s FISA court warrant application to surveil Page.
Same old playbook.
At the request of Assistant Circuit Attorney Chris Hinckley, crime lab staff members field stripped the handgun and found it had been assembled incorrectly. Specifically, the firing pin spring was put in front of the firing pin, which was backward, and made the gun incapable of firing, according to the documents.
Firearms experts then put the gun back together, per Hinckley’s request, in the correct order and test-fired it, finding that it worked, according to the documents.
Crime lab workers photographed the disassembly and reassembly of the gun, according to the documents.
Hinckley swore in the complaint filed that it was “readily capable of lethal use” when it was used in the incident.
No evidence..fabricate it.
If the gun was used as a prop in a courtroom by both mr and mrs mccloskey, would not a reasonable person wonder if the gun had been inspected to affirm it was inoperable before being allowed to be used as a prop? And, would not there be some document recording that verification? If this were to be established, the mccloskeys have a case for evidence tampering should the soros backed circuit attorney claim the gun was operable on June 28.
The prosecutor should be impeached
@July 4th American: No one but no one but a LEO carries an operative gun into a court house these days. I think there would be documentation of exhibit A somewhere in records. Often display guns have firing pins removed especially for gun shows ect. The search of their home didnt find any ammunition, after all of this I am betting they will get some. The Mrs may even learn how to load the .38.
