  • Cuomo sinks lower then a whale turd. and for him to sit there and look at the same video of people ON THEIR lawn yelling and screaming and point at the same time. Standing face on to both him and his wife.... NOT WALKING PAST THEIR HOUSE... again Cuomo sinks lower then a whale turd ! Chris @5:20 "do you actually have proof of them approaching your house" .. Watch the video douche canal.. They broke through an iron gate, came off the private street and 30 plus feet into their lawn approaching the house. Did I say Cuomo is lower then a whale turd??

  • Cuomo, they broke through his property gate which was invasion of private property The guy has a right to brandish a weapon which is the 2nd Amendment right to do so in order to warn them off the property. It isn't about what the President or what the media misconstrued his image as another example of Black Lives matter. This is about the guy who was victimized by lawless people breaking through their property just to protest inside their property which is a crime to destroy someone's gate only to gain entry..

  • I’m black and to be honest hearing this I understand why he did this now. Also to be fair the couple could have and in my option should have stayed in there home armed. But the protesters should not have broke down the private security gate. And seeing a crowd like this I would have been afraid also but would not go outside to meet the mob. At the end of the day they had a right to stand there ground and thank god no one got hurt but it was not smart to go outside like that.

    • That's why they had a locked gate. How far should you let someone walk through your front door before they need to be confronted?

  • What Chris is trying to point out is when you accuse someone of assault, you need to be able to prove it. At this point, there is nothing to prove anything this man is saying. If there were hundreds of terrorists breaking down his gate and threatening to kill him and burn down his home, they would have done it. Two people with guns would not have stopped "hundreds of terrorists" whose intention were to attack him and burn down his home. We have had centuries of people like him embellishing and fabricating stories when they relate to Block people. Moreover, if he was a lawyer who fought for equal rights for Black people, he would have been standing out there cheering on the protesters or had some kind of sign in his yard that showed support for Black lives as many other people do. When asked whether he had proof (surveillance) of protesters on his property, he became agitated and refused to answer a yes or no question. This man is a liar and Chris Cuomo just proved it!

It's not like they were just passing through his property. I'm neither republican nor democrat. I'm in the middle and this is terrible.

"That's a completely ridiculous statement" This man showed great restraint. That's putting it nicely. If that was ME on the show and I was asked those same ridiculous questions, my response would be "Fredo, you are a effing moron!" Hey Fredo, if you love those thugs so much, invite them to YOUR neighborhood! You're fine with them breaking down gates and intimidating your family and neighborhood, right? No? Why not? Idiot.

  • If was a private road going through a rich neighborhood they helped pay for and built. I don’t see anyone in anyone’s yard and he asked if they approached his house and by his reaction u can tell that nobody approached his home. It’s basically the same thing as us poor people pointing a gun at someone in the street in front of there house passing by U can call it trespassing but it don’t mean it is. U can call it terrorism but that don’t mean that’s what it was heck he could have said they held his dog down and beat it but it wouldn’t mean that it really happened. This guy is obviously willing to bend the truth he is a lawyer

  • If a person is scared of a mob to the point of bringing out guns. why are they outside running there mouths? Seems to me they would stay inside by the window and watch out then if someone gets close with malicious intent then tell them they are about to be shot. At least then u didn’t go out and incite violence urself and it gives u a chance to see if people are just being loud because it is a crowd a protest of angry people who are tired of being killed and if they do decide to approach ur house then wave a gun not as they are walking down the road. You paid to keep them out and off ur street for years now they got in and by god u are going to show them who’s boss on rich prick avenue and show them ur guns and threaten them with the same violence they are protesting if I was out there protesting and someone started waving a gun around that would make me say some threatening stuff to and mr sir with the gun we learned the most basic rule in life as a kid. Treat others like u want to be treated. If u went out and had no intention of causing violence u just wanted to protest and someone threatened u and ur family with a gun I’m sure u would threaten them back. Regardless of what was said while they put the protest together u didn’t know until after u threatened them with a gun. And his lawyer taking about we all need to keep hearing blm and u can tell he is one of those who would say to there pals I’m sick of hearing about black Lives Matter. Y’all are for sure racist Get em Chris Cuomo

Please show me how you think that douche Chris is right.

  • In 2013, the synagogue placed beehives along the wall to produce honey for Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. One morning they found the hives destroyed and all the bees dead. Mark McCloskey had taken an ax or sledgehammer to them. His issue? The fence between them sat six inches inside the McCloskey’s property line. The hives were his to wreck. “He could have picked up the phone and said, ‘Hey, those beehives are on my property,’ and we would have happily moved them,” said Talve. She said children at the synagogue wept when they heard the news of the hives. The synagogue maintains raised bed gardens on its property that supply some 2,000 pounds of fresh produce to a local food pantry, as well as pear, fig and apple trees. “We were going to have our own apples and honey for Rosh Hashanah!” she said. She said the McCloskeys didn’t contact the temple at all before lashing out. Instead, McCloskey left a note threatening to sue the synagogue for damages if the shattered hives were not removed at once. These people aren't just bullies. They are evil assholes.
