BREAKING: NAACP and Union Thugs Intimidate Kenneth Gladney Family Outside Clayton, MO Courthouse …Update: More Than Half Jury Pool Has Union Ties

After a health care town hall meeting in August 2009 St. Louis native Kenneth Gladney was beaten, kicked and called racist names by Rep. Russ Carnahan’s SEIU supporters. Gladney spent the night in the hospital after the beating.

Gladney, a cancer survivor, was selected by the Carnahan supporters for the beatdown because he was handing out “Don’t Tread On Me” flags and because he was black.

Kenneth Gladney attended a protest against SEIU violence following his beatdown in St. Louis.

Today is the trial of the two SEIU thugs who targeted and beat Kenneth Gladney.

UPDATES will be posted below—

NAACP and union thugs intimidated Kenneth Gladney today outside Clayton, MO courthouse… Gladney was attacked outside a Russ Carnahan town hall event in 2009 by Carnahan’s SEIU supporters.

Kenneth Gladney was wearing a neck brace today for the trial. He had surgery on his neck recently.

UPDATE: Kevin Killeen from KMOX is tweeting from the courthouse.
More than half the jury “pool” has union ties.
The jury was just sworn in.

UPDATE: (2:30 PM CST) Defense claims Kenneth Gladney slapped Elston McCowan’s hand, after McCowan (the SEIU leader) called Gladney an “Uncle Tom.” Defendant Elston McCowan is wearing a neat suit coat and tie. Co-defendent Perry Molens is wearing a black shirt, no tie, duck tail hair. They are both about twice the size of Kenneth Gladney.

Kenneth Gladney was just called to the witness stand.

UPDATE: St. Louis Activist Hub (far left loons) says the defense has a witness that has not been discussed yet(?)

UPDATE: I’m heading down to the courthouse now. Will post updates when I get back home.

UPDATE: The Gladney family said they felt intimidated during the jury selection and trial outside the courtroom. The SEIU, NAACP and Green Party members would come out and stare at them.
Like this.

The Gladney family is sitting on the bench here. SEIU thugs are staring.

The prosecution was still calling witnesses. John Gillery, a local business owner, has yet to testify. John was speaking with Kenneth the night he was jumped. He was standing there when the SEIU members came over started screaming at Gladney and then jumped him.

UPDATE: The trial will likely continue tomorrow. The defense still has to call witnesses. There was a decent crowd in the courtroom today.

    Will the Post Dispatch report the union ties? Hah!

  • Mahdi Al-Dajjal

    Talk amongst yourselves. I’ll give you the topic.

    If the jury is made up of union members, you can GUARANTEE that the union member defendands will receive an acquittal on all charges.

  • tom beebe st louis

    or even the trial, unless the thugs prevail?

  • GrayRider

    Tainted jurors? Yeah, I’d say so. Looks like the whitewash is in.

    More than half the jury pool has union ties.
    The jury was just sworn in.

    Call me low in confidence, but this won’t end well.

    He’s screwed. Only a miraculous act of God can turn the hearts of the jurors in favor of Kenneth.

  • jony101

    seems only people who belong to the union can afford to be in a jury. Normal people can’t survive on the 5 dollar a day the court pays.
    Even the judge and police running the court belong to the union.

  • RedBeard

    Half the jury pool, not necessarily half the jury. Hopefully Gladney’s team did a good job at voir dire.

  • squeaky

    also could be some intimidation of the union associated jurors. vote to acquit or feel the heat at work.

  • Redwine

    Rigged jury. Needs to be called out.

  • Militant Conservative

    Jurors dumber than spit, you must acquit.

    Any Freedom Riders available to provide escort???

  • scr_north

    Regarding half the jury having union ties, it all depends on what the ties are. If for example, a juror has a uncle that was a member of the IBEW before he retired then while this could be loosely defined as a tie it will probably not make a difference. On the other hand if a juror’s spouse is a member of the SEIU then that juror is probably tainted and should be excused. Also consider that a juror may have close union ties and still despise unions.

  • for the record

    This has more evidence and smoking gun of the crime not evidence of the cover up after the event than Casey..Just saying.

    Alleged “hand slap” you say? Wellllll……THAT certainly deserves a multi-person-on-one response down to the point of viciously hitting and kicking the “aggressive” lil’ hand-slapper to the point that he needs a trip to the E.R. and ongoing hospital treatment.

    That ought to show him and all the rest of “his kind” to “know their place” and stay in it, down on the “Demwit (rhymes with dimwit — same same) Plantation” alright. Gotta keep ’em from gettin’ too uppity for their own good, dontcha know. Sets a mighty fine example, too, making the sure they don’t stray too far from the “true” path. “E pluribus union-dues” and all that jazz.

    Welcome to justice in the world of Obama. Thomas Jefferson said it right, “When injustice becomes law, then rebellion becomes duty”.

    History repeats itself. The US government once again being infiltrated by those who want to destroy us. The Communists did this in the 1930’s and 40’s to our detriment as they sought to corrupt our domestic and foreign policy to give deference to the Soviet Union.
