NOT GUILTY- SEIU GOONS CLEARED IN GLADNEY BEATING!
I just spoke with Kenneth Gladney and his wife outside the courtroom. Here is their first reaction—
“I couldn’t beat them; I didn’t have the resources they had. They had all the money in the world and the backing… I’m just an average man.”
Video of first reaction after the verdict:
** It was the prosecutor’s first jury trial.
The Kenneth Gladney beatdown case continued this morning in St. Louis County Court.
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.
Kenneth Gladney attended a protest against SEIU violence following his beatdown in St. Louis.
Accused SEIU thug Perry Molens who beat Gladney told the jury this morning that he saw Gladney selling Obama-in-white-face swag outside the town hall…
So then he beat his a$$ on the pavement.

Of course, this makes perfect sense if you’re a
Islamist, child, lefist.
Another witness for the defense testified that people were getting maced by the police after the beating. This may be the same woman who got maced because she resisted arrest. Charges were later dropped against her. Today she testified that (5′ 9″ 140 pound) Kenneth Gladney started the fight against the two (6′ 4″ 250 pound) SEIU thugs.
UPDATE: Tuesday PM. The case is ready to go to jury but closing arguments first. Contacts inside the court room claim that the judge cleared the room twice.
UPDATE: (From a source in the courtroom) Closing Arguments– The defense attorney pointed out how Ken had been glory hounding making money off this… Claimed Ken changed his story on TV… Claimed Ken is a tea partier because he came to our protest right after….OMG he just said the tea party paid Ken to promote their agenda…. I assume he means the bus tour….This is not looking good for Ken.
(Of course, none of that has anything to do with the fact that he was beaten by thugs and it was caught on tape!)
UPDATE: Contacts in courtroom wonder if case is being thrown. NOW the case goes to jury.
UPDATE: NOT GUILTY! SEIU thugs cleared in video-taped beating of Kenneth Gladney.
UPDATE: In case you missed the video… This was not a beatdown (according to the jury).
